Definitely not. Termites cause more damage than fires, storms and floods combined. Therefore it’s
important to put some sort of detection system in place. (Go to home page for more information)
Yes it does, for that particular day. They may move in, however, the following day. You’ve just spent $1000’s on stamp duty, termite inspections, engineering reports, solicitors, loan applications, insurance etc. Why not spend another few hundred on a termite protection system that will protect you from the critters that cause more damage to homes than storms, floods and fires, combined. It’s a once-only-cost, there’s no ongoing fees, once they’re installed.
Get a pest controller now, and worry about monitoring later.
When this happens home owners usually freak out and think that they have just arrived. That is definitely, not so. Termites are in every bodies garden, minding their own business and have been there for 1000’s of years. In fact, the CSIRO state that 80% of Australian homes are within 25M of a termite colony. Termites are only a problem when and if they actually get, inside the house itself.
Detecting termites with wooden stakes placed in the garden around a house have been around for 30 years. The big difference is we position out timber monitors inside the actual house. Very close together and concentrated in all the high-risk wet areas where termites like to sub nest and breed. When the monitors are inspected every 3 months you can catch them early when and if they gain entry. For more information go to our “Technical information menu”
No not at all. If you are checking the monitors every 3 months, they haven’t had time to establish themselves in your house, breed or cause any damage. In fact, the other 3 methods of termite control, definitely have issues.
Yes they will. In a good way. It proves to a potential buyer that you have been monitoring your house for termites as an ongoing process. The buyer will engage a pest controller to carry out a pre purchase inspection who can also check the monitors. They can also view inside the wall cavities with their bora scopes (tiny cameras) through the existing termidetector access holes throughout the entire house for any other activity.
No, you’re not. The words brick veneer describes a house that is constructed from a wooden frame with the outer skin of brick. The strength of the house comes from the timber wall frames, the timber roof beams and trusses, inside the brick work. Termites can find their way through cracks in the brick work and especially through minute cracks in the concrete slab and attack the frame work of the house without your knowledge. Once the timber frame is weakened the house could collapse.
Firstly, it cost nothing to inspect them and takes 10 or 15 minutes. 3 months is the minimum time they
should be checked. If termites are discovered in your house, they haven’t had much time to cause any
damage. The sooner they’re discovered, the cheaper and easier it is to eradicate them. We send our clients email inspection reminders every 3 months.
If your house is in a high-risk area, we suggest you inspect them, more frequently. If you have recently
had a pest controller carry out a termite eradication program in your house, I would check the monitors
every couple of weeks, until you felt comfortable that the termites hadn’t come back.
And so you should be. They are the size of a 20C piece and sit will down, just above the skirting boards. (Go to the Product Range menu for more information)
Most pest controllers would consider our system to be a threat to their ongong inspection business.
If they sold termidetectors, home owner wouldn’t require their services anymore.
That won’t work. Termites can gain entry from the other side of the house to get to these moisture areas, so it’s important to place the monitors around the entire house. …No gaps.
No termite prevention or monitoring system negates the need for yearly termite inspections by an accredited pest controller. Australian standard (AS3660.2) …That’s the law
