Termite treatments or chemical soil treatments

The aim of a termite treatment in Melbourne is to deter termites from entering your home by applying a termiticide (pesticide) to the soil in a continuous zone around the building. Treatments are used for termite infestations and also as termite protection.

Termite Tactics recommends and prefers to use Termidor due to its proven success in termite protection and termite control in Melbourne. Termite Tactics has been accredited in the application of Termidor by the manufacturers.

Termite traps, termite baits and termite monitoring systems

Termite traps and baits use areas of termite activity to gain control of termite colonies that are infesting a building. Bait is added to termite traps, with the aim of the termites taking the bait back to the nest they originate from and potentially killing that colony.

Termite traps can also be used as a monitoring system to detect termites as they travel through the soil. They are checked on a regular basis and if termites are found, termite bait can be added.

Nest treatments for termites in trees, sleeper retaining walls or other structures

Termites often nest in trees, tree stumps and sleeper retaining walls. Signs of a termite nest in a tree or stump include termite mud on the trunk and swarms of termites that fly out of the tree or stump in warmer weather. A nest will have a hollow void within the tree that often resembles honeycomb and a high temperature reading when tested with a temperature probe. If a termite nest is found, it can be treated easily and quickly.

Our detailed knowledge of termite behaviour is a key factor when we conduct nest searches.
