Protecting your home from:

Termites

Termites (white ants) excavate the internal structure of timber leaving a thin cell. Termite damage may be considered within about six months of them entering the building. Termites enter walls from foundations and 1.33 mm cracks in concrete slabs and can destroy the structural timbers on their way to the roof timbers.

Termites are often attracted to the warmth of electrical wires and fittings behind power points. Termites are in every street and suburb. They can go through 1.33mm cracks and attack timbers, plastering and gyprock. Termites are active spring, summer, autumn and winter. Your home insurance policy does not cover termite damage.

TERMITE INSPECTION SYDNEY:

Annual termite inspections are essential for early detection of termite activity on the property to prevent the potential for large scale damage and expensive repairs. Inspections also assess the condition that makes a property more susceptible to timber pests and ways to minimize the risk of attack. A great majority of homes in Australia are at risk from termite attacks. We at Rex Pest Control perform regular pest control services and inspections, so feel free to contact ustoday and book your appointment.

The CSIRO recommends a competent pest inspection at least every 12 months and in some cases more frequent depending on your risk of termites.

Where you live is unique and there is no place like home. Termite inspections are carried out by our termite control and inspection technicians who not only have on-the-ground experience but who are trained continually with in-depth local expertise so they will always know what's going on in your area. Of course, our technicians still benefit from the knowledge that crosses state borders, the latest technology for better results and the backing of a company that is here for the long term.

A full termite report is provided to you for every termite inspection. After a comprehensive inspection of your premises, inside and out of accessible and safe areas we will provide you with recommendations on the best solution for your individual situation.

Don't let a small problem become a costly one!

 

TERMITE TREATMENTS:

Termites cause billions of dollars in damage each year. They primarily feed on wood, but also on paper, books, insulation and even swimming pool liners and filtration systems. Termites can injure living trees and shrubs, but more often are a secondary invader of woody plants already in decline. While termites may infest buildings at any time, they are particularly relevant when buying or selling a home since a termite inspection/infestation report is normally a condition of sale. Besides the monetary impact, thousands of winged termites emerging inside one's home are an emotionally trying experience. Not to mention the thought of termites silently feasting on one's largest investment. 

There are two general categories of termite treatment; liquids and baits.

Liquid termiticides have been around for many decades. Their purpose is to provide a long-lasting "barrier" in the soil. Current products are non-repellent and termites tunnelling into treated areas are killed. Such products are usually more reliable controlling infestations in the first place. 

The other treatment category is baiting. Termite baits consist of cellulose-based food combined with a slow-acting substance lethal to termites. Foraging termites eat the bait and share it with their nestmates and resulting in a gradual decline in termite numbers. On some properties baits may constitute the only form of treatment; on others, they may be supplemented with liquid applications to areas where termites are observed. 

Regardless of which approach is used, it is important to have an experienced technician do the treatment. DO NOT DO IT YOURSELF. 

Termiticides are tested extensively for adverse effects on health. Before a product can be used, numerous studies are contacted by the manufacturer and independently evaluated by the Environmental Protection Agency. Based on current knowledge, registered termiticides pose no significant hazard to humans, pets or the environment when applied according to label directions.

Despite the negligible health risk from a properly performed termite treatment, those with lingering concerns should consult their physician. 

Most of the newer liquid products have essentially no odour.

People who remain apprehensive may want to consider having their home treated with baits.

We only use products that are people, pet and planet-friendly.
