Our termite treatment creates an invisible barrier that will give you the peace of mind that comes only in knowing your investment has been protected professionally with the best termiticide treatment available.
How to save your home, and your budget, from being eaten full of holes.
Termites work silently and invisibly sawing into your floor joists, cutting into your wall studs, hollowing out the heart of your home and hiding the damage until it's too late.
One of the greatest hazards any homeowner faces is termites, which do more damage than fires, storms and earthquakes combined. Termites survive by eating wood, paper, fibreboard, cotton fabrics, and other cellulose products. If ignored, termites can actually threaten the structural integrity of your house, and this is where the danger lies.
Termites infest millions of homes nationwide, causing over $100 million damage annually, according to information available from the National Registration Authority.
Subterranean termites are native to virtually every State in Australia. Although small in size they are large in numbers. Termites congregate in enormous underground colonies, as deep as 5m underground, that house hundreds of thousands to millions of individual termites. They are dispersed throughout the soil at feeding sites around your home.
Only a trained professional understands the intricacies of how a termite colony behaves.
Using advanced materials, such as Biflex, a skilled, professional applicator can effectively apply a termite barrier that is designed to control termites and minimise the risk from any future termite attack.
Termites work the day shift, the night shift, weekends and holidays.
Houses and other buildings provide termites with the ideal combination of warmth, moisture and food sources. Termites can find ways to enter your house that you've never thought of. They are small enough to gain entry into hidden areas of basements, crawl spaces, and concrete slabs, through openings as small as 0.8mm.
Termite survival depends on finding edible material to support the colony. Moving out from their colony, they tunnel through the soil in search of moisture and food. They forage around bark landscaping, near air conditioner drip lines and below gutters. They also like tree stumps, timber decks, buried wood or construction material, and piles of firewood. A loose mortar joint, a small space around a drain pipe, or a settlement crack in the concrete slab is all they need to gain entry to your home.
The experience of homeowners nationwide shows that no home, new or old, is safe from termites. By building mud tubes, termites can cross concrete, brick, metal termite shields, pre-treated wood, or even a professionally applied termite barrier. Landscaping activities by the homeowner are also capable of disturbing the barrier - thus creating entry points for termites to attack your home.
Unfortunately, yes. When a colony swarms, the winged termites are reproductive males and females and may be in the air for just a few minutes.
Termites colonise structural members internally and eat wood from the inside out; making their activity detectable only by a professional termite inspection.
The longer you delay treatment, the more damage termites will do. The termite treatment and structural repairs will become more extensive and more expensive. Generally speaking, the sooner you approve treatment, the better.
How does a professional inspection uncover termite activity that's invisible to me? While much termite damage is hidden, termites have few secrets to the eyes of a professional.
Professional pest control managers are well trained in termite behaviour. They have available sophisticated equipment to detect termite activity, and they can also determine how the termites got there.
As professionals they will be familiar with the treatment options and how to use them to CUSTOMIZE A TREATMENT PROGRAM THAT IS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO PROTECT YOUR MOST IMPORTANT INVESTMENT... YOUR HOME.
An invisible barrier will be created between your home and the termites, blocking them from your house.
Methods vary with each house, depending on the type of foundation or basement, construction materials, number and type of porches, patios, chimneys, etc. By digging narrow trenches along external walls and drilling through horizontal surfaces Biflex can be applied where it will kill termites within your home and block the colony's re-entry.
No. A modern termite control treatment may usually take a day or two, or maybe even less, with very little upset to your daily routine. And, considering the fact that a home is the largest single investment most Australian families will ever make, protecting its value is not much trouble at all.
Only professional pest control managers have the experience, knowledge and access to quality products to protect your home from threat of termite infestation and serious structural damage. One of the tools we use to stop termites is a superior termiticide.
We've chosen FMC's Biflex over all other termiticides because of it combines powerful protection and environmental compatibility.
Biflex is effective at low concentrations.
Independent tests have shown that Biflex stops termites. We’d have to use at least ten to twenty times as much of some other termiticides to match the stopping power of Biflex. That’s a powerful advantage we know you’ll want.
Biflex keeps protecting longer.
We want your home to have long-lasting protection, and Biflex delivers it. In CSIRO field trials in Australia as well as other global trials, Biflex has provided outstanding termite control, compared to competitive products. Professional use of the product has been similarly successful.
Biflex won’t hang around in your home.
Its active ingredient has very low volatility. That means you’re not exposed to airborne residues after treatment and Biflex has very low odour compared to some other products.
You want termite protection to be as environmentally responsible as it is effective, and we agree. That’s another reason we’ve chosen Biflex from FMC as the best option.
Finally, Biflex can be safely used to create termite barriers around vegetables and fruit trees because of its non-systemic features.
Professional termite protection is your only sensible choice. As professionals, we have confidence in Biflex.
