Aggregated treatment was developed by Australian Government scientists and involves
placing in-ground high energy food sources around the property. Foraging termites encounter these stations and lay a pheromone trail to lead others to the location. Large numbers develop a cycle as they transport the food back to the underground nest. At the peak of this cycle the termites inside the system are treated with a miniscule dose of metabolic powder which they inadvertently transfer back to the nest where it spreads and destroys all members of the colony. The system is then cleaned and restocked to wait passively on guard for future colonies to invade.
You don't need to. Treatment takes advantage of the natural cycle of worker Termites that constantly deliver food back to the nest. They also unwittingly deliver the toxin that destroys their colony.
No. Termites forage at random (similar to surface ants). Antennae is positioned to intersect foraging areas. Only one termite has to find the sacrificial insert to attract large numbers from the colony.
As soon as you sight Termite activity, replace the cap immediately to avoid further disruption and give us a call to come out and destroy the nest.
Yes. All infestation of buildings comes from termites that were first foraging outside.
If termites are already feeding on a house they are most likely to be from the same colony intercepted outside and all are returning to the same nest. When the nest is destroyed those feeding inside will also be eliminated.
No. Termites do not detect timber from a distance. They find food by constantly foraging shallow soils and surface. The systems will only engage termites that are already probing your yard.
Sentrex eradication systems form an underground surveillance network that will identify termite activity on the property and provide the best opportunity for total colony elimination. Capital cost is similar to a traditional chemical installation without the need for regular reapplications or ongoing monitoring fees. The only future cost is fixed rate treatment and reactivation after termites have been detected and destroyed.
No. The damage caused by termites every year is so large, insurance companies exclude termite damage from the building insurance policies.
Yes. We offer internal pest control using a variety of eco friendly options that cater to your specific needs. We service the Sunshine Coast, Noosa Heads & Brisbane Area
No. Termites are essential to natural ecosystems not developed urban environments where they are serious pests.
