Termite pest control

Did you know that termites can devalue your property by more than 25%? Termites can cause extensive damage to the structure of a building and go for years undetected without a monitoring and inspection regime. They can significantly devalue your property and cause large costs in repairs to any building containing timber.

At Rentokil, our termite treatment plans are tailored specifically for your particular needs. Spotting termites is difficult to the untrained eye, until the damage is considerable and expensive. Our timber pest specialists are highly qualified, experienced and trained in identifying evidence of termite activity and provide recommendations and treatment options to reduce the risk of termite attack as well as ventilation, dampness, wood decay and fungi issues that create termite conducive environments. 

We use the EXTERRA TERMITE COLONY ELIMINATION SYSTEM, an Australia-patented technology system proven to be very effective in tackling termite problems at its source, and there are solutions for both prevention and removal.

Rentokil Termite Control Solutions

Termite inspections should be conducted at least annually, and more frequently depending on the termite species suspected, building construction type, environmental conditions, property location and geography, and history of any termite-related issues within or surrounding the property. 

The results of termite inspections are delivered in a detailed written report and include as a minimum:

  • Termite detection or non-detection
  • Environmental or conducive conditions for termites
  • Any termite damage found during the inspection
  • All areas that had limited access or were restricted for the inspection
  • Any risk factors that may increase the chances of a termite infestation
  • Recommended termite treatment options

Termite Monitoring

Our Rentokil Termite Monitoring Solution (TMS) is specially designed to provide a holistic approach to minimize the risk of termite infestation in your property. Termite monitoring involves the use of effective termite monitoring stations, which are placed around your property to detect termite activity. Our termite expert will routinely monitor these stations for activity. Adopting a proactive measure, this solution monitors your property for any termite activity before it becomes a problem, ensuring you the peace of mind you deserve.

Designed to scientifically eliminate subterranean termite colonies, EXTERRA termite baiting stations exploit termite biology and behavior. Worker termites take and transfer the bait throughout the nest, eliminating termites at the source. Unobtrusive above-ground and in-ground bait stations provide continual protection without causing damage to your property. 

  • Produced using 100% recycled plastic and the hardwood interceptors are sourced from sustainable forests. 
  • The station and related chemicals are considered non-toxic to people and pets. 
  • Versatile place of deployment: In-ground Stations, In-concrete Stations, Above-ground Stations. 
  • GUARANTEES to solve the problems.

Chemical barrier termiticide treatment

Termite chemical barrier treatment involves liquid chemicals applied to the soil beneath flooring and/or around the perimeter of your property’s foundation. A long-lasting chemical barrier in the soil reduces the risk of concealed termites entering the structure and pushes them out into the open so that a fully trained, qualified and competent timber pest inspector can detect them before they enter your property.

The treatment involves applying a liquid chemical, a termiticide, to the soil, either under the concrete flooring or around the entire perimeter and foundations of the building to create a continuous and complete solid barrier.

  • Suitable for homeowners and businesses who want to take proactive measures against termites
  • Suitable for implementation at any stage of the building’s life

Pest Control 101: Understanding Termites in your Business

Common Q&A

How much does termite control cost?

Your termite control costs will ultimately reflect the time and effort it will take to manage them in your home or business. The first step in determining the cost of termite control is fully understanding the problem. How serious is a termite problem? What attracts termites to a house? Is it bad to live in a house with termites?

To answer all the above questions, Rentokil will need to visit your property to inspect for termites. Following this, the below factors will determine the most suitable termite treatment and its associated costs.

Type of termite

The three types of termite are subterranean (reside in the ground), drywood (nest inside the wood they’re infesting) and dampwood (infest damp and often decaying timber). They have very different habitat requirements and will infest properties in unique ways. Treatment will vary depending on which termite species is identified.

Size of premises

The square footage of your property and premises will have a direct impact on the type of termite treatment used and the number of follow-up treatments required.

Type of treatment

The location of the termites, be inside or outside your property, will affect the type of termite management treatment. A combination of treatments may be selected to target all lines of defense.

Number of treatments

Sometimes termite management requires multiple treatments for successful control. This can be reflected with the pricing of the termite control service.

The severity of termite infestation

If many termites are present, or they are largely established within your property, you may require more extensive treatment. Our treatment may also recommend other solutions such as engaging a plumber to reduce or rectify a drainage problem, or the installation of vents or the removal of scrap timbers found in a subfloor. All this forms part of our termite management solution.

 

What are the first signs of termites?

Termites can cause significant damage to homes, and early detection is crucial to prevent costly repairs. The first signs of termite infestations may vary depending on the species of termite and the extent of the infestation. However, some common signs that homeowners can look out for are mud tubes, discarded wings, wood damage, frass, and tight-fitting doors and windows.

To learn more about signs of termite infestation.

If any of these signs are detected, it's important to contact a professional pest control company to conduct an inspection and take appropriate measures to prevent further damage.

How do you tell if termites are in your walls?

It can be difficult to tell if termites are in your walls, as they often work silently and out of sight. However, there are some signs that can indicate a termite infestation in your walls:

  • Knock on the wall: If you hear a hollow sound when you tap on the wall, it could be a sign of termite damage.
  • Peeling paint and wallpaper: Termites can cause blisters and peeling of paint and wallpaper on walls, indicating damage underneath.
  • Visible Mud Tubes: When termites invade walls through the foundation, they can create mud tubes through which they can travel. These tubes can be found on walls and crawl spaces. Termite swarms: Termites swarm inside and outside your home to indicate a full-fledged colony nearby.
  • Frass: Termite droppings, known as Frass, can be found near infested areas and can appear as small pellets or a powdery substance.

 

What temperature kills termites?

The temperature that kills termites depends on the type of termite and the length of time of exposure to heat. In general, termites are heat sensitive and cannot survive temperatures above 120 degrees Fahrenheit (49 degrees Celsius) for long periods of time. However, some termite species are more heat tolerant than others and may require even higher temperatures to eradicate.

 Be aware that attempting to heat treat a termite infestation yourself can be dangerous and ineffective. Hiring a professional exterminator is the best way to ensure that the treatment is done safely and effectively.
