During a routine termite inspection, The Pest Company’s Licensed Termite Inspector located live schedorhinotermes working with the termite leads of Nasutitermes. It’s not unlikely to come across a new infestation in a similar area that was once attacked. The reason the termites are back in is due to the property not having a termite management system installed to protect against an attack. Termite entry points are like highways, once the road is built, we use it frequently and so do termites.
On this occasion, a live termite treatment will take place using Termidor and a foaming agent and machine to enhance its delivery. Now we have located the live termites (as shown in the video) and more inside the home, we can now make a move to try and eliminate the colony using Termidor. Termidor is a non repellant termiticide that will be placed on the live termites and within their termite leads with the minimal disturbance so the Termidor can be transferred to each other and back to the main colony to achieve colony elimination. Once the treatment is carried out the treatment area will be left undisturbed for 30 days to the let Termidor do the work. Once the 30 days are up, a recheck of the treated areas is necessary to ensure no live termites are found. Once the termite inspector gives the all clear it is best to get your builder to inspect the timbers to determine what repairs are required and to open up the walls to ensure there are no live termites found, from here a Termidor termite treated zone is recommended to ensure long-term protection of the home.
