When termites made their way into your home, they can cause irreparable damages to your property. They can even affect the structure and integrity of your house, costing you thousands of dollars. But, how do you know that your home is infested by termites? Here are some signs to look out for:
- Discarded wings
- Mud tubes
- Wood-coloured dropping
- Banging sounds
- Water damage
- Damaged wood
If you notice any signs of termite damages or suspect the presence of termite infestation in your home, it is a great idea to contact the professional pest control melbourne company. They will be able to assess the situation and administer the appropriate termite treatment. Here are some standard termite control methods used by the experts:
As termites live in the soil, it is best to treat the surrounding soil. A trench is excavated around the foundation and the soil is treated with termiticide. This type of treatment not only kills the existing termites but also prevent future infestations.
Termites love wood and establish their colonies where there are piles of logs. Pest control experts use a variety of wood treatments such as injected sprays, surface sprays and borate treated wood to kill the existing colonies and prevent future infestations from shooting out.
Bait systems are considered to be the most effective way of abolishing termite colonies. The termite control experts install bait systems around the perimeter of your home and in areas that are susceptible to termite infestation. They will monitor these stations regularly, ensuring that your home is protected from current and future infestations, all year round.
