DAP Pest Control Pty Ltd
Pest Control - Ringwood, VIC
Termite management solutions aim to significantly reduce the chances of major damage caused
to your property by termites.
It is important to arrange routine annual inspections of your home as well as the replenishment of your termite protection as recommended.
Termites avoid light and rarely come out into the open. Often they're found within timbers where they leave a wafer-thin layer to protect themselves from the outside environment, and conceal themselves out of sight from predators.
Did you know?
Termites cause more damage to Australian houses than fire, floods and storms combined - damage that is not covered by regular household insurance!
To provide continuous adequate protection to your existing home against the concealed entry of subterranean termites, an on-going anti-termite treatment program is essential.
A chemical barrier around the entire perimeter of a home or building protects all entry points so that termites looking for a new food source are unable to enter and are killed on contact.
Termite protection chemical treatments in accordance with Australian Standard AS 3660.2 are usually required every three (3) or five (5) years (depending on the type of foundations of your home) because the biodegradable chemical control agent used to treat and protect your home has a limited effective life span.
Usually, the last treatment date to the property will be recorded on a treatment notice, which has been placed in your electrical meter box. When a visual inspection is carried out by a DAP Pest Control technician you will be informed of when the next treatment replenishment to your property is required.
If landscaping has altered the soil levels a booster re-treatment should be carried out sooner. Any landscaping or changes in soil levels will disturb the chemical protection barrier. Unless the termite barrier is reapplied, your property will be unprotected.
