Methods of termite management

You can put physical barriers made of metal, crushed rock or other materials that the termites cannot chew or get through. The physical barrier should be placed under concrete slabs, foundations and within cavity walls. Barriers stop the termites from their paths and bring them out in the open. Get Sunshine Coast pest control to install the physical barriers so that the material effectively helps in resisting termite attack.

You can also put chemical barriers under concrete slabs, foundations and surrounding areas. An in-soil chemical barrier is the chemical that you mix with the soil under the building and the surrounding area. In-plastic chemical barriers are chemically treated plastic sheets that act like a physical barrier.

Install termite bait stations

Baits are an alternative approach to termite management. Read Termites Gold Coast. Baits consist of paper, cardboard and pieces of wood combined with a slow acting solution to kill termites. Foraging termites devour the bait and share it with their nest mates. The result is that you will see a gradual decline in termites. Some bait wipe out the whole termite colony. Remember, the bait must be tempting for the termites to be diverted from the nearby trees or wood stumps. You need to monitor the termite bait every three months.

Follow up monitoring

If you want to ensure that the termite population does not increase in the house, you need to periodically inspect the house. See Building inspections Melbourne. While inspecting you need to look at cracks, leaking areas, and basement walls. Around the house, remove all the waste wood stacks and piles. Ventilate the crawl spaces and attics to reduce humidity. A thorough Pest Inspections of the house every month will help termite management.
