Termites Are a Serious Threat in Sydney

Termites are active across Sydney and can cause serious structural damage if left unchecked. In fact, termites cost Australians more than $1 billion in repairs and treatment every year. Some termite facts:

  • There are over 350 termite species in Australia, but only a handful cause damage. The major culprits are subterranean, dampwood, drywood, and conehead termites.
  • These destructive pests feast on cellulose material – namely wood and wood products. This includes framing, floors, doors, furniture, books, and more.
  • Termites tunnel and hollow out wood from the inside, leaving only a thin outer layer. This makes them difficult to detect in the early stages.
  • An average termite colony can consume 1-3 pounds of wood per day! It only takes months for a full-blown infestation.
  • Termite activity increases during warmer months, but they are busy year-round in Sydney’s moderate climate.

It’s clear termite prevention and control should be a top priority for all Sydney.

Our Strategic Approach

We use an integrated pest management (IPM) process to control termites. This involves careful inspection, identification of conditions conducive to termites, strategic treatment methods, and continued monitoring.

  1. Thorough inspection of property to gather information about structure, walls, and situation. We use advanced technology to identify damages, vulnerabilities, and high-risk areas.
  2. Assessment of inspection findings and property specifics. Our experts provide tips and recommendations to remedy conducive conditions.
  3. Custom treatment plan developed using most effective IPM methods based on termite type, infestation extent, building materials, and environmental factors.
  4. Targeted application of treatments to known termite entry points and vulnerable structures identified during inspection, like crawlspaces and attics.
  5. Follow up monitoring for effectiveness and prevention guidance on moisture control, sanitation, landscaping, and maintenance for lasting, eco-friendly termite control.

Termite access and infestation

We look for things like:

  • Cracks in foundations and slabs
  • Direct wood-soil contact
  • Excess moisture near structures
  • Leaky plumbing
  • Poor drainage
  • Wood debris in contact with home

Rather than douse your home in harmful pesticides, we develop a customized plan to address the conditions attracting termites and exclude their entry points.

Preventative Measures Homeowners Can Take

  • Eliminate wood mulch and debris near home exterior
  • Stack firewood off the ground and away from house
  • Fix plumbing leaks and improve drainage
  • Ventilate damp crawl spaces and attics
  • Ensure proper clearance between soil and siding/stucco
  • Seal cracks in foundation as soon as they appear
  • Use termite-resistant building materials

Why Termite Treatment Is Important

Termites may cause great damage to your home or building, as long as they have favourable conditions. Here are the main reasons why termite treatment is important:

  1. Termites Multiply Very Fast

Termite queens may lay 15-20 eggs every minute. Since termites do not sleep, this may mean more than 40,000 eggs per day. Without proper termite pest control, this may lead to a full-blown infestation in no time.

  1. It Saves You Money

The average cost to repair a home damaged by termites in Sydney is $4,500 – even more, depending on the size of the colony. It costs less to prevent, something that may easily be done with termite treatment.

  1. It Gives All-Season Protection

These destructive pests do not have the concept of seasons. This means that they will deal the same damage on your home during winter as they would during summer – as long as they have good conditions. Termite treatment will give you peace of mind as it will remove the termites and keep them out in the long term.

Types of Treatment Available

There are options of treatment available to treat a termite infestation.

  1. Live Spraying

If you have an ongoing termite infestation, live treatment will be necessary to kill the termite colony. We kill active colonies using termiticide such as Termidor directly on their nest. This will remove most of the termites in your home, the rest of them being destroyed once they try to return to the nest.

  1. Termite Barriers

Termite barriers offer ultimate protection against termite infestations. To install a termite barrier, we will make a trench around the perimeter and spray it with our termiticide. If termites try to go past it, they will be killed almost instantly and will have no opportunity to reproduce.

  1. Termite Baiting

Termite baiting systems are installed around the yard, using a non-toxic “bait” to monitor termite activity. If termites are discovered, the non-toxic bait is replaced with toxic bait, killing the colony that has been feeding on the bait.

  1. Termite Reticulation

A termite reticulation system is often installed during the pre-construction phase of the house. Pipes are installed underneath your home, which will pump pesticides into the soil. This action will prevent termites from gaining entry into your home from underneath. These pipes may be refilled once the termiticide runs out, most manufacturers recommending a 2-year interval.

At Eco Pest Control Sydney, we may install any type of termite protection system, ensuring the safety of your home in the long run.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the signs of a termite infestation?

Signs include hollowed out wood, termite droppings that look like coffee grounds, crumbling drywall, and wings from swarmers around windows. Even a single swarmer wing indicates there’s a mature colony nearby.

How do you treat them?

We use an integrated pest management (IPM) approach that incorporates exclusion, remediation of conducive conditions, mechanical disruption, and precision application of naturally derived termiticides when necessary.

What can I do to help prevent them entering my property?

Proper moisture management around the home, removing wood debris, stacking firewood properly, fixing cracks in foundations, and using termite-resistant building materials can help deter termite activity.
