Pest Control & Termite Inspections
Eco Pest Control Melbourne offers termite prevention and removal services. Where there are termites, just know that we are not far away to keep them away from your property.
Our Melbourne termite control team is experienced in the different aspects of termite control to ensure that your business and home are termite-free and protected.
Termites appear small and don’t seem capable of much harm. However, according to CSIRO, 1 in 3 homes will be affected by termite infestation within the structure’s economic value.
Because of their size and subterranean operation, termite activities often go undetected. Most property owners don’t detect termite presence until they spot termites physically on their property.
Others won’t even know until their structures are badly damaged. But should you really rely on chance to discover termite infestation?
Who Are They For?
Insurance companies don’t cover damages caused by termite infestation. In other words, even if your property is badly damaged and the building is threatening to collapse, your insurance company won’t bat an eyelid. This is because, like us, insurance companies believe termite invasions are preventable. As a result, a termite inspection is for everyone.
Preventive termite protection methods are ways to check for termite presence and protect your home from destructive pests. According to Australian Standards AS 3660.2-2000, homeowners must let qualified and licensed pest managers inspect their homes for termites at least once a year. At Eco Pest Control Melbourne, we offer various services to keep termites away from your property.
Areas We Inspect
Our inspection usually includes the exterior and interior of a home. This includes the foundation and accessible roof cavities. We will inspect holes in the drywall, discoloration on the walls, peeling paints, and floorboards. Not only this, but our inspection also covers dark and damp areas under the house for signs of termite activities.
Our pest control team will pay careful attention to the door jabs, skylights, ventilation, floorboard, ceiling, roof voids, inside walls, architraves, and other hidden areas inside your home. We will also check your backyard landscaping, under the house, soil areas and garden beds, gutters and pipes, and dead trees and stumps.
We carry out termite inspection to achieve the following:
- Determine the type of termites on your property
- Determine the building structure of your home
- Determine the type of treatment required – whether a barrier or baiting system
- Determine the cost per perimeter protection
Tools We Use
The borescope camera helps us get into the wall cavity to detect anomalies.
Thermal imaging infrared camera
The thermal imaging camera detects heat through the floors and walls of your home to know where the termite nests is.
Motion sensor and moisture metres
Our motion sensors detect movement through the walls, brick walls, and tiles. The moisture metre also helps us identify anomalies within the wooden walls.
The termite tapper acts as a sounding tool for alerting us to where a termite attack has occurred.
We use the torch to light our way into crevices and provide more visibility.
What If Termites Are Found
If you ever detect termite presence yourself, don’t disturb them. Doing so will only make them relocate to a new area. Instead, call us to assess the situation.
After detecting termite presence, we will recommend the best termite treatment and prevention procedures. Our termite control method usually involves destroying active termite nests and setting up barriers and bait systems to prevent future attacks.
To treat live termites, we spray the nest with Termidor to destroy the colony. To prevent further attack, we will set up physical or chemical barriers and baiting systems to prevent further infestation.
Termite Treatment Services
We include Physical and chemical barriers, and reticulation systems in our termite treatment services.
Physical and chemical barriers are two ways we exterminate termites and prevent future infestation. Physical termite barriers are placed within the construction to block potential entry points and redirect termites into more visible parts. This way, we can kill them conveniently.
Chemical barriers form a protective barrier that termites can’t go past. We use Termidor to create a barrier that spreads by contact. After coming in contact with Termidor, the infected termite will spread the virus to others until the entire colony is eliminated.
A termite reticulation system is a combination of different underground pipes positioned around a property for continuous protection against termites. Using a network of underground pipes, we can replenish a chemical barrier using pumps and specialized equipment.
We use sentricon, exterra, and trelona as termite baits. After strategically placing the baits on your property, we load it with cellulose and an active ingredient that attracts termites. After eating the cellulose and bait, the entire colony will die. Besides killing the termites, our baits distract them from going inside the property since it contains everything a termite loves to eat.
