TimberSure - total termite protection with a full timber replacement warranty. No property is safe from termites!
Independent government data shows 1 in every 4 homes is attacked by termites at some stage in its life. In some places termite attack is as high as one in three homes. An increasing number of commercial buildings are coming under attack.
Your home or building is insured against damage by fire, you'll almost certainly find that your home insurance policy excludes termite damage. This is due to the great extent of the termite problem in Australia, and the impossibility of protecting against attack.
Australia's subterranean termite species (white ants) are the most destructive timber pests in the world. In fact it can take "as little as 3 months for a termite colony to severely damage almost all the timber in a home".
How Termites Attack your Home The most destructive species live in large underground nests containing several million timber destroying insects.
The problem arises when a nest matures near your home. Your home provides natural shelter and a food source for the termites. They'll travel up to 100 metres to enter your home where there is a smorgasbord of timber to feast upon. Even concrete slabs don't act as a barrier. Termites can penetrate through cracks in the slab to gain access to your home. They even build mud tubes to gain access to above ground timbers.
A Thorough Approach is Essential Your TimberSure Termite Program needs to be tailored to suit your home. A complete treatment program is divided into two parts.
Stage One - Inspection and Colony Control Measures. Your TimberSure program commences with a thorough inspection and written report. This forms the foundation of all successful termite management programs. It involves gaining access to areas where termites may be active and checking all the visible timbers in your property. If the termites haven't been disturbed, then tiny amounts of a termite control dust may be used to try and eradicate the colony. Termite baits stations for the detection and control of future activity may also be installed.
Any recommendations made on environmental modifications to minimise termite activity will need to be implemented by you. This may include improving ventilation and drainage and the removal of items that attract termites to your home.
Whilst these measures will counter the immediate threat of termites, and perhaps eradicate the colony that is currently attacking your home, they provide no protection against other termite colonies. Thus, if another nest exists near your home, there are still no measures in place to protect you.
Stage Two - Provision of a Treated Zone Barrier. This involves the formation of a Treated Zone Barrier in the soil around and under your home, which Innovative Pest Consultants can go. This will provide a barrier which will impede concealed termite entry.
