If you find your home or business under attack by this damaging pest, Rentokil can offer several termite control treatments to eliminate the infestation and restore your sense of control and comfort.

Arrange a thorough termite inspection by our accredited team of termite control specialists for your peace of mind today.

Termite inspections

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:

  • Termites 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

Exterra termite baiting stations

In-ground monitoring and baiting

In-ground termite stations are installed in strategically important points around your property, applied to areas at most risk of attracting termites, such as moist soil or mulch, old tree stumps, irrigation sprinkler heads and downspouts. For some devices, they are inspected regularly and when active termites are detected, a baiting program will commence. Other devices contain active baits and are inspected regularly regardless of whether there is termite activity.

Worker termites take bait - which contains termiticide - back to their nests as a food source, feeding it to and shortly collapsing the colony. 

  • Suitable for homeowners and businesses who want to take proactive measures against termites
  • Suitable for implementation at any time
  • Designed for both monitoring and baiting

Above-ground termite monitoring involves the use of unobtrusive termite bait stations, which are placed on identified feeding sites and are then removed once the colony is eliminated.

Above-ground monitoring and baiting

  • Suitable for homeowners and businesses if termites are already active within the property
  • Suitable for implementation at any time
  • Designed for baiting only

Termite soil treatment and spot treatment

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.

Some chemicals are designed to kill termites and others are designed to deter and/or repel them. Engage with your Rentokil termite professional about choosing the right type of termite chemical for you. 

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