Termite Baiting

Termite Baiting Systems – Perth

Until recently, the almost exclusively used method of termite management was the application of a chemical termite barrier. The application of such a barrier to your home would typically involve spraying large volumes of toxic and environmentally persistent chemicals around and under its foundation in close proximity to you and your family.

Exterra radically changes all that. And as important as Exterra’s environment friendly features are, they’re just a big bonus.

Exterra’s greatest advantage compared to chemical barriers is its ability to eliminate the actual source of your termite problem – the termite colony itself.

The Exterra Termite Interception and Baiting System is a systematic, multi-step termite management method. Australian field trials have clearly demonstrated the effectiveness of the system in controlling subterranean termites in Australia.

Bug Busters strongly recommends the use of the Exterra Termite Baiting system in Perth, especially if you already have active termites inside your home and the entry point is unknown. The Exterra product has been tried and tested over many years in the Perth termite treatment market. Furthermore the safety of this non-toxic termite treatment method ensures safety for your family.

The Exterra Termite Interception & Baiting System is designed to intercept foraging termites and to concentrate termite feeding in Exterra Stations. In-ground Stations containing timber interceptors are embedded in the soil around the perimeter of your building to provide protection. These are inspected on a regular basis until termites are intercepted.

At this point Bug Busters will add Exterra Requiem Termite Bait to the In-ground Station. Requiem is a Chitin Synthesis Inhibitor. A key component of a termite’s exoskeleton is the substance chitin. Without chitin termites cannot complete their natural moulting process. If they do not moult they die. This results in the elimination of the colony whilst avoiding the use of toxic chemicals in the environment. Requiem is less toxic than table salt.

When the colony has been eliminated, the Requiem Termite bait is removed and fresh timber interceptors are placed in the Stations. These Stations continue to be monitored by Bug Busters on a regular basis.

Where termites are found to be feeding within your building(s) we incorporate pest management solutions that have worked for clients across Perth. Above-ground Stations containing Requiem Termite Bait are installed on the property. This may require inserting small screws and the opening of small access holes to enable termites to enter the Station. These Stations are removed once the colony has been eliminated, or if no feeding occurs.

International studies have shown that Requiem has a very low level of mammalian toxicity, even at very high levels of exposure, so it does not pose any risk to you, your family, the environment or your pets. If you’re looking for natural pest control, contact Perth’s recommended choice.

Bug Busters Termite Baiting System explained (link to Exterra PDF’s)

House under attack from termites.

The first step in the Exterra Management program is a thorough inspection of your home by a fully accredited and licensed pest manager. Your Authorised Exterra Pest Manager will determine the nature of the threat to your property and recommend cultural changes you should make as well as determining optimal placement of Exterra Stations.

Exterra Stations are placed around your property.

Stations are checked regularly. If termites are in your home, Above-ground Stations are installed. Above-ground Stations allow your termite problem to be dealt with immediately, right at the point of termite attack. This can mean a significant decrease in the time to colony elimination. A hand-held computer and barcode scanner are used to ensure the quality of your program.

Termites are intercepted by Exterra Stations.

Termites are easily detected in the Exterra Stations. The unique (patented) design of the Exterra Station allows for termites to be seen without disturbing them. This is very important. And the termites are not disturbed during bait application either.

The Exterra Station is baited with Requiem

Requiem is added without disturbing the termites. This is vital to achieve quick and consistent results. Requiem is highly palatable to termites and they readily consume it in preference to timber. In fact Australian studies show that once termites start feeding on Requiem they stop feeding on timbers in your home! Requiem is also very low toxicity to you, your pets and the environment.

The Termite Colony is eliminated by the Requiem.

The termites feed on the Requiem and take it back to the colony where it is fed slowly throughout the entire colony. Since the termites die gradually, they do not associate the colony’s demise with the Requiem. This ensures that the entire colony is eliminated.

The colony is eliminated….

Fresh interceptors are placed in the Stations and ‘Peace of Mind’ monitoring continues. Your property always remains susceptible to future attack from new termite colonies or other established colonies in your area. To relieve this constant threat the Exterra System works on an ongoing process of monitoring, baiting and eliminating. This makes its use ideal as an ongoing early warning system.
