ASSASSIN PEST CONTROL are termite treatment specialists and we boast the latest in thermal imaging technology that enables us to pinpoint termite locations with 100% accuracy.
Its always important to first assess the current condition of your property:
A full timber pest inspection and a timber pest report is the starting point do decide what is required for effective termite control, wood decay management and borer control.
Termite Treatment after a Building Inspection has found Termites. A residual three step treatment around all structures coming up out of the ground of a building.
After many years in the pest control industry Darryl & his team at ASSASSIN PEST CONTROL have amassed a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to finding termites & appropriating the most effective termite control method. Our treatments are aimed at not only eradicating your current termite problem but also ensuring that the termites will stay away in years to come.
Termites have a 200 million year evolutionary history closely related to cockroaches. They can be found right throughout Sydney. Knowledge of their biology is crucial for building and home inspections.
Termites forage for food over a large area (approximately 100 metres) in search of timber and operate and live in a central nest or colony. The worker termites partially digest the timber before returning to the nest to feed the colony. This can cause considerable damage to our homes and bank accounts, as many Sydneysiders will attest, and can happen in a matter of months. Termites are social insects, and there are multiple castes within the colony.
Until Termidor was released, protecting those homes involved chemicals that are repellent to householders as well as termites and which have to be applied in a perfect, unbroken barrier. Termidor has quickly established itself as the most effective and convenient protection for homes with no built-in barrier.
This type of termite protection doesn't depend on a repellent barrier and actually eliminates termites rather than just repelling them. This is because termites cannot detect Termidor. It has the added advantages of low toxicity and no odour. In fact, Termidor is a soil termiticide that does not require occupants to leave the house while the treatment is carried out.
Older chemical treatments create a repellent barrier that termites won't go through, but will try to find a way around. While they are usually effective, they have three main drawbacks; applying them creates a repulsive smell that lasts a day or two and can be difficult to live with; they deter termites, but do nothing to reduce the colony; and even a gap of a few centimetres in the barrier can cause the treatment to fail. Termidor supersedes those barriers with an extremely efficient in-ground trap that termites can't detect the Treated Zone. Far from being repelled by a barrier, termites forage into the Treated Zone and are killed in one of three ways:
Heavy spraying is rarely required for termite treatments:
