Termites are a massive problem confronting homeowners in Tarneit and all of Victoria. Termites, known as white ants, infest from the home from within, feasting upon wood, timber, and other hard organic materials. Termites cause significant property damage everyday throughout Australia to homes that are not protected. The Pest Control Professional can stop termites before they find your home.
Termites enter your home via underground tubes. As a result, termites are often hard to detect initially until they already have a large presence. At the first signs of termites on your property, it is essential to call the Pest Control Professional immediately to reduce further damage and eliminate the problem pests. The surest way to protect your property from termite invasion is prevention. The Pest Control Professional recommends yearly treatments to keep termites away.
Remember, any money spent protecting your home is well worth the investment. A couple hundred dollars a year can save you tens of thousands later. How bad are termites? Combine all of the property damage in Australia from storms, floods, fire, rain, and all types of natural disasters … termites still do more than all of that combined each year.
Some home and business owners attempt to save a little money with store bought treatments. Be very careful with over the counter chemicals. They are often less effective, require multiple doses, wash away in the rain, and can be loaded with toxic chemicals that can have harmful effects on your family, your pets, or your garden.
For Tarneit, the only choice for protection against termites is the Pest Control Professional.
An Overview of Termites
When dealing with termites, it’s important to understand their behavior. Not all pests act the same. Different treatment solutions work better with different types of insects. That’s why the Pest Control Professional is the expert in dealing with termites, spiders, rodents, ants, and more.
The queen is the center of the termite colony. The colony is composed of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of termites with a single purpose – to allow the queen to create more and more termites. The queen produces up to 2,000 termite eggs each day and they can live up to 25 years. If you do the math, that’s almost 20 million eggs in a queen’s lifetime. Once a termite colony has grown large enough, their insatiable appetites can wreck a home within just three months.
Termite colonies are underground complexes, sprawling and massive. One of the clearest signs of a termite colony are their mud tubes. The workers use these mud tubes to travel safely as they expand the colony and gather food. Upon first site of mud tubes, you know you have a termite problem. Immediately, call the Pest Control Professional for assistance.
Soldier termites defend the colony. They are identifiable by their over-sized heads and large mandibles. Perhaps, the biggest competitor of termites are ants. A lot of people assume that ants and termites are related, but they are not. Termites are actually a member of the cockroach family.
Once a termite colony reaches a certain size, the queen will start to produce alates. These are special types of termites that have wings and can produce eggs. These are the termites way of colonizing new homes. If you see a winged termite, then you know that there is a large termite colony nearby looking to expand.
Termite Treatment & Control
Understanding the termites is essential in preventing them from infesting and ruining your home. Termites eat dead termites. As a result, effective treatments that are used to exterminate one termite can be passed through the entire colony. The Pest Control Professional uses, in addition to other treatments, special bait traps. These bait traps will draw termite workers with irresistible smells to consume the termite treatment and bring it back to the colony.
When the worker dies from the bait trap, the treatment can then quickly as other workers and soldiers ingest the termite treatment, spreading it throughout the colony.
All termite control solutions used by the Pest Control Professional are 100% safe for the entire family, including your little ones and the family pets. We use the same termite treatment options on our home as we do for our customers. They are environmentally-friendly and are created with natural products.
