Termite treatment options for protecting your home

We use Exterra, The World's No.1
Termite Monitoring and Baiting System

Broadly speaking there are two types of termite managements systems that are used to protect existing buildings from termites

  • Liquid soil treatments – liquid insecticide is pumped into the ground around the property creating a treated zone which either repels or kills the termites
  • Termite baiting systems – plastic bait stations containing wood are placed in the ground around the property. Any termites in the area will start feeding on the wood, when they do, the pest manager adds a termite bait which the termites take back to the nest, killing the colony.

Termite baiting systems have two key advantages over liquid soil treatments

  • Liquid soil treatments are not suitable for every property due to the construction type or soil properties
  • Baiting systems are the safer, environmentally friendly way to eliminate termites as there is no need to pump large amounts of insecticide into the soil

To provide the best protection for your home you need to put in place a termite management plan. This involves three key components

  • Making conditions around your home less attractive to termites
  • Having an annual professional termite inspection (more often in high risk areas)
  • Installing a termite management system around the building to provide lasting protection

As a result, at Residential Reports we have decided to use baiting as our primary termite control system and when it comes to baiting, we only use Exterra, the world’s No.1 termite protection system

Exterra Termite Management Systems

We have the utmost confidence in Exterra. Ensystex who manufacturer Exterra claim it is the No.1 termite protection system in the world and it’s easy to see why. With over 100,000 homes protected by Exterra in Australia alone, plus a number of high profile buildings, you know the system works and is trusted by thousands.

Exterra uses patented technology to create a complete “interception” zone around your property – making sure termites attack the monitoring stations rather than your house. The highly attractive bait matrix mean that termite colonies in the area are actually eliminated reducing the termite pressure on your property. (Liquid soil treatments do not kill the colony).

Why do we use Exterra?

To control active termites in your home

  • Termite bait stations are placed in areas where the termites are feeding
  • The bait station contains the attractive Requiem bait (which contains a slow acting insecticide)
  • The termites then start feeding on the bait, taking it back to the nest and killing the colony. Colony control typically takes 2-3 months.
  • Once the pest manager is confident the colony has been control, the home can be declared termite free
  • However, it is important to install a termite monitoring system around the home to prevent future attacks (see below)
