Termite Bait Stations

Non-chemical monitoring and baiting stations are used for current termite activity and longer-term preventive measures. Termite stations are placed at 3-meter intervals around the perimeter of the home. They contain timber that attracts termites into the station.

Colony Killer | Termite Baiting

Chlorfluazuron mixed in with powdered cellulose. Chlorfluazuron, an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR), disrupts the production of a new outer shell during the moulting process, leading to the death of the insects. Additionally, it prevents the queen from laying viable eggs. Termites of all castes cannot moult once-fed bait, but the large-scale end of thousands of nymphs is the usual cause of the colony’s demise. Chlorfluazuron does not affect humans, pets, birds, or wildlife.

However, they have the advantage of being non-poisonous and the ability to check termite activity and eventually eliminate it. It takes time to get sufficient bait back to kill off a nest. Indeed, Steam n Dry Pest Control Auckland Baiting in multiple places accelerates the demise. Nests usually receive un-baited food from other areas of the colony.

Therefore, killing a large colony usually takes at least a month, sometimes several months. Once baiting, it is essential not to do any gardening, landscaping, or anything that may cut through any termite tunnels between the feeding site and the nest.

Dusting for Termite Control

The dusting of termite activity is a traditional treatment method and relies on the pest controller’s skill. Not all pest control companies offer this service. To be effective, it requires a large number of termites and many treatments over some time. The dust or powder is toxic to termites. It is for a puffer to direct into the activity. The concept slowly kills the termites, allowing the dust to pass throughout the colony.

Once the activity ceases, dusting is not a stand-alone, and it will combine with other termite treatments. Indeed, costs will vary greatly and depend on the situation.

As well as other indicators of termite infestation are loose plaster, sagging walls, piles of plaster or wood dust, and jammed doors or windows. When a termite infestation happens to be apparent, it is, in many cases, full-blown. Suppose you are suspicious of an outbreak in any division of your home.

Termite Control Spot Treatments

Spot treatments use an approved liquid medicine directly applied to or injected into the active termites. Indeed, the impact is immediate when termites are in garden beds, tree stumps, or trees.

In most situations, they are the lowest-cost method for treating termites. However, Steam n Dry Pest Control Auckland Services will always recommend an entire termite protection plan to minimise the risk of further termite activity.
