Termites

First of all, it’s important to note that termites are subterranean. This means that they travel underground undetected. They are particularly dangerous because in most cases, once you have noticed the damage, it is highly likely they have been there for some time. Geelong Pest Control can help you fight those nasty borers with effective termite control. We service Geelong, Werribee and the wider Surf Coast area.

What puts your home at risk?

MOISTURE! MOISTURE! MOISTURE!

Termites predominantly look for areas that have high moisture content in the soil and therefore have a high probability of finding moist timber. For example, timber stumps, poorly ventilated sub floors and wet areas are just a few of the common paths termites take to get into your house. Homes in Geelong, Werribee and the Surf Coast are exposed to humidity due to their close vicinity to the sea. If you need effective termite control services, call the experts at GPC.

Inspection/Detection

Geelong Pest Control utilises tried and tested techniques as well as the latest technology in termite detection. Termatrac T3i is the most advanced device in the world developed purely to detect, confirm and track the presence of termites. It allows termite inspections and treatments to be completed more accurately saving time and chemicals. For experienced and ascertained termite control in Werribee, Geelong and throughout the Surf Coast, many clients choose GPC as their trusted pest controller.

Treatment options

Non repellent

We prefer to use Termidor for termite control. It is a reliable chemical barrier that we apply to the soil surrounding your home or structure. Termidor has a pass on effect that uses the typical characteristics of termites communicating by touch to transfer the active chemical back to the colony, hence eliminating all current termite activity and future reinfestation.

Repellent

We use Bifenthrin as part of our termite control services. It is a kill on contact chemical that also repels any existing and future termite activity away from your home.

Pre-Construction barriers

A pre-construction barrier is one of the most cost effective and best methods of preventing Termite infestation. Home Guard Blue is a robust chemical membrane that we install directly to your concrete slab and services, before the timber framing stage has begun.

Reticulation

Reticulation is a great way to provide a chemical barrier for termite control purposes, which can be very cost effective for future retreatment’s once installed.
