Strategies Available For Controlling Termites in Perth Area
There are two key strategies in the fight against white ants. Both have advantages and disadvantages, however, depending on the problem you have in your building, the Pest Professionals will be able to give you detailed advice on which is best.
Chemical is the most widely used method for termite control. Essentially, this method prevents termites from entering the building, either by introducing the chemical in a set location or by controlling the entire surrounds of the building.
There are a few great termite control chemicals on the market, with an active protecting lifespan of 5-10 years depending on the company.
This method of termite control is best for when there is an existing termite infestation. This will exterminate the resident pests so they stop destroying your home. This method involves baiting the colony, and it can take a few months to take effect.

How To Tell If You Have A Termite Infestation?
You want to keep a lookout for burrowing lines in your timber. When you scrape the burrowings, you will notice the sand dust-like material fall away. Even though there may not be white ants visible, they could still be there, just further along in another piece of timber in another part of your home.
There is no better alternative than to have regular inspections by trained, qualified and experienced technicians. Keep your home and your family safe, contact us today to find out how we can help.
What Attracts Termites to My Home
In one word, food! Termites do not eat trees. Rather they feed on ‘dead’ timber, such as the timber found in your home.
Other sources that may bring termites to your home are:
-Firewood stacks close to your home.
-Timber garden sleepers.
-Fallen, dead trees.
It is best to get rid of such items, and where possible, to use termite treated timber around the home such as that used for timber decking.
Pre-Purchase Termite Inspections
These should be made compulsory, however, they are not. This leaves home buyers vulnerable to buying a building that has had a long history of infestation. The repair bill can be in the thousands, and that is if the building can be salvaged at all.
It is essential to have a pre-purchase termite inspection performed by a professional and reputable company (such as Pest Professionals!). This will ensure that you are keeping your investment as secure as it can be.
