A standard pest treatment carried out by Bugs or Us Pest Control would generally include the external spraying of building walls, fences, sheds, bins, clotheslines and cubby houses, etc. We would also spray internally around the skirting boards cupboard kickboards and sometimes in around the kitchen cupboards a gel maybe used. We will blow pesticide dust into the roof void and into the subfloor area where possible.

In some cases we may do total internal floor sprays or yard sprays depending on the pest we treat, all products we use are registered for their intended use and purpose so you can feel safe after the treatment has been done we have your safety in mind.

Termite inspection Taree

Annual termite inspection Taree is essential for early detection of termite activity on the property to prevent the potential for large-scale damage and expensive repairs. Inspections also assess the conditions that make a property more susceptible to timber pests and ways to minimise the risk of attack. A great majority of homes in the Taree region are at risk from termite attack.

The Australian Standards recommends a competent termite inspection Taree at least on an annual basis and in some cases, more frequent depending on your risk of termite attack. The aim of doing termite inspection Taree so frequently is so that ideally we detect the termites early before they have done extensive damage to your property and that it is repairable at a lower more affordable cost.

A comprehensive annual termite inspection Taree by Bugs or Us Pest Control is your best option as with our specialised tools like our Termite Detection Dog, Thermal Cameraand termatrac machine we have a better chance of detecting termites than possibly 99% of all Australian pest control firms. We attribute it to the use of our Termite Detection Dog, as they rely on scent and not the termites being visible they are far more likely to find termites where a person alone would fail. Particularly if the constructed house on a concrete slab, has restricted access in the subfloor or non-visible entry points.

What happens during a termite inspection Taree?

Our Termite Control Technicians use their experience and professional training to carry out a comprehensive inspection of your home or business premises. We inspect all accessible areas of the building where applicable, subfloor, roof void, interior, grounds,etc., in accordance with the Australian Standard. We will be looking for live termites, previous termite damage and any factors that may contribute to possible termite attack in the future.

Our termite detection dog, the thermal camera will be used if it has been requested. You should note that there is no standard for the use of a thermal camera in our industry and we do not claim to be qualified thermographers, we use our training provided and industry knowledge to determine if we think there is a thermal anomaly that warrants further investigation and if necessary, we will use our Termatrac machine. The Australian Standard now recommends the use of these tools on the presence of high moisture content and a reason cannot be determined before completing an invasive inspection.

Once the inspection is complete, we will discuss any issues we may have detected and rectification work that may be required to reduce the potential risk of termite attack. We will forward you an extensive report with all our findings.

Our prices are very competitive for the level of service we provide and the equipment we use. With a quick phone call or email, we will be able to give you a free no-obligation quote on having a termite inspection Taree done with a termite detection dog. We can service anything from a terrace house to a mansion or strata buildings.

Termite Treatments in the Taree

Before any termite treatment Taree should begin, an experienced technician must carry out a full termite inspection Taree. This inspection is required because there may be other areas in the building infested with termites and if these are not treated, then full control is unlikely.

If any sign of termite is visible, we first must try to control the termites in your house either by Termite Baiting, which is our preferred method or using termite dust of foams. Whilst we do use dust or foams, we are very selective where we use them. You should also know that there is a ban on the use of Arsenic dust in homes. Thus, we do not use it. Once you have controlled the infestation, you should then have a management plan installed to reduce the potential of termites re-entering your home.

Termite Baiting in the Taree

Termite baiting is the most effective way of achieving termite colony control and is a non-toxic option. We come across many houses in the Taree Region that have had a cheap treatment did that did not gain control of the colony.

Baiting involves us trying to get the termites to feed on the bait (the hardest part of the job), once this happens, they take it back to the nest and feed it through the colony. Termites actually moult several times in a year.When this happens, the colony will break down and die if they have consumed enough bait. Insect Growth Regulator, (IGR) is the term used to denote the way the ingredients in the bait work. As termite baiting relies on termites moulting, getting colony control is a lot more achievable because we are not putting poison in contact with them as such.
