About Cairns Termite Treatments
Pestaway provides professional and effective termite management in the Cairns Region. Not only do our inspectors consider the best termite protection for your home, but are proactive in thinking about the safety impact to you, your family, your pets and the environment when we install termite protection to your home.
If you find termites in your property or garden the first step is to contact Pestaway 07 4055 1055 to arrange for one of our termite inspectors to attend. Do not break open the lead or spray as this can make matters worse and termites can be easily disturbed and move on before treatment can be undertaken.
Termite management does not stop with eliminating your current infestation. Once the current termite activity is treated our inspectors will then provide you with a management plan to protect your property from further attacks.
Effective Termite Management Systems
Chemical soil treatments provide excellent protection for your home as they create a protective barrier around your property that termites are unable to penetrate.
Baiting systems are also very effective in protecting against termite attack. If you have a baiting system, we will come to your property to monitor them regularly.
Some properties may require a combination of both systems for effective protection against termites, depending on your home’s design and layout.
For any property, we also recommend that you have a visual termite inspected at least once a year, maybe more, depending on your situation and your location.
If you want to know more about how Pestaway can protect your home from termite attack simply give our office a call or inquire online today. We look forward to hearing from you and keeping your home pest free.
Chemical Perimeter Soil Treatments
Chemical soil treatments are commonly used as a preventive measure to deter termite entry into a home and to provide ongoing protection after activity has been discovered and treated.
A Chemical Treatment Zone is a very effective means of ensuring a continuous zone around your property, that acts as a barrier preventing termites from moving through the soil and entering your home.
Chemical Treatment Zones can be installed around a property by trenching the soil areas and treating with termiticide then backfilling. Small holes are injected through the slabs such as paths and driveways, which are then injected with the termiticide and resealed once complete.
Chemical Perimeter Soil Treatments can last up to 8 years before it needs to be reinstated.
Pestaway are fully Accredited Termidor providers.
Alongside your chemical soil treatment, we recommend annual inspections to provide a proactive approach to protect your property.
Cairns Inground Baiting Systems
If your preference is to use a low chemical alternative, you may want to look at an Inground Baiting System. These systems work by providing a food source for the termites by the way of cellulose. The food source is treated with a low toxic IGR which affects the termite’s exoskeleton which eventually kills them as they are unable to form a new exoskeleton as they grow.
The termite will also bring the bait back to the colony infecting the termites at the point of origin. A baiting system requires regular inspection and maintenance to remain effective.
To use baiting systems successfully, stations are installed every 3-4 metres along the perimeter of your home, allowing the stations to intercept termites before they reach the property itself. These stations are entirely safe and will remain hidden beneath the ground. If you have a baiting system, we will come to your property to monitor them regularly.
