How Termite Inspections Work
The Technology that Dee Why Pest Control uses incorporates a Moisture Sensor and a Remote Thermal Sensor with Laser Guide to enable our friendly staff to easily detect Termite Risk Areas. Once a Termite Risk Area is identified, a Termite Detection Radar built into the device is then used to detect and confirm actual presence of termites and track the locations of nests, leads, and entry points.
Nearly all pests, termites and other common wood destroying organisms need moisture and high humidity to survive and multiply, thus they will seek such locations to inhabit. Our Moisture detection system enables the operator to easily identify areas of excess moisture as a possible risk area for termites.
Additionally, congregations of termites will generate heat and humidity. Our Laser Guided Thermal Sensor detects termite risk areas by identifying areas of increased heat and humidity in building structures.
Upon identifying a termite risk area using the Moisture Sensor and/or Thermal Sensor, our staff will then switch over to Radar mode. Our Termite Detection Radar detects the movement of termites. we can detect activity level of any termites present.
Once a positive reading with the Termite Detection Radar has been established, termite activity can be tracked to locate entry points and nests. The tracking procedure on the Detection Radar shows our staff the extent of the activity and the direction from which the termites travelled to get to a particular point. This method enables the staff member to locate internal termite nests, then follow termite leads to locate the entry point of the termite infestation. They will then establish where the main nest is outside the building.
Termite prevention is carried out with use of Termidor, a chemical compound that is extremely powerful in eradicating termite colonies. Our employee will dig a small trench around the outside of your home and apply the Termidor compound to treat the soil surrounding the house. The impregnation of the soil is vital in ensuring the termites cannot come near or enter the home without touching or ingesting the chemical.
Once a termite has come in contact with Termidor it will then transfer the chemical throughout the colony speeding up the process of killing of all the other termites still not infected.
Termidor is one of the most thoroughly reviewed termite control products in history. Termidor has been assessed by the Australian Pesticide and Veterinary Medicine Authority and Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing and is fully approved for use in domestic situations. Termidor is applied at some of the lowest doses of any of the termiticides available today. Termidor is water-based and has no odour, will not leach through soil and is not damaging to soil micro-organisms, earthworms and plants. In addition, the active ingredient is used extensively on food crops around the world and as the leading product for flea and tick control on dogs and cats in Australia since 1996. Termidor has also been safely used in over four million homes throughout the USA and Europe.
