Termite Control Melbourne

If you’ve never had your house treated for termites, the thought may be daunting. What is the first or most essential stage in the planning process? Can people stay in the house while termites are being treated? Is structural fumigation your only choice? Is there a lot of work involved in preparing for termite treatment? These are reasonable questions, and the answers will assist you in preparing for your forthcoming termite treatment.

  • Get a professional termite examination.

The first step in preparing for termite control in Melbourne is to get a professional termite examination. An inspection will inform you if you have an infestation, how severe the infestation is, and what the best treatment choice is. You will be given a thorough assessment report to help you decide between several treatment choices. You will learn about the degree of preparation required once you have decided on a treatment choice. Stay-at-home treatment and structural fumigation are two typical types of termite treatment techniques.

  • Stay-at-home termite treatment

With this method, you may stay home while your property is being treated, as the name implies. Borates, tree bark derivatives,  oil, microwave, and radiant heat are examples of human-safe and environmentally friendly treatments. These solutions are convenient because they may be implemented in as little as one day and do not necessitate any preparation on your side. The efficacy of at-home treatment is determined by the type and degree of your infestation. These are the least intrusive treatment methods. So, if they are suitable in your case, your pest control specialist will recommend them.

  • Structural fumigation

Since it is so prominent, structural fumigation is arguably the most well-known method of termite control. The termite control experts will encase your complete house inside a termite treatments tent. Chemical termiticide is administered once your property has been sealed off. The form of termiticide can penetrate walls and reach every part of your property where termites may be hiding. The measure of erecting a tent is intended to safeguard anybody in the vicinity of your property during fumigation. Before your house is ready for structural fumigation, you will need to undertake some preliminary work. Food and medicine in your house must either be safeguarded with protective bags or removed entirely from the premises. You should also make plans for your family, including pets, to stay someplace else during the treatment. It may take many days for your house to be certified safe for re-entry.

You should not begin preparing for termite treatments until you and your termite specialist have selected the best treatment choice. You may begin the preparatory procedure after you know what therapy you require. You don’t have to worry about considerable preparation if your property can be efficiently eliminated with a stay-at-home procedure. However, if structural fumigation is the best choice, you will be given a checklist of measures to complete before the treatment can begin. Work together with your pest control specialist to ensure you fully understand what you need to do to prepare.

Customers should complete the following before we arrive:

  • Remove as many objects as possible from beneath sinks, behind pipes, and in the kitchen and bathroom.
  • Examine your property and, if there are any overgrown bushes or plants against the outside of buildings, trim them down.
  • Give us access to the boundary of your property. Move the conveniently moveable things, including furniture, into the middle of the room (away from the walls).
  • As we will be examining all of these locations, make sure that any access points, such as the roof, garage, and basement, are available.

Another thing you might want to do is keep your records when you see anything out of the ordinary on or near your property. For example, if you believe you’ve seen termites or heard them crawling around in particular areas of the property, make a note of where and when you believe you saw them. It can assist us in narrowing down any areas of concern, and then we can utilize our technologies to determine their position.

Just be careful not to intentionally upset any termites you encounter. This frequently makes matters worse (because they can move elsewhere in the home very quickly). Just make a note of it and let us know.

In between pest assessments, remember to clean up any dead wood,  tree roots, shrubs, trees, and tree stumps around your site – especially if they’re adjacent to any structural components – since they are a refuge for pests and will give easy entry access into the premises.

You may avoid several items to make the examination easier and more accurate.

Our moisture meters, for example, can detect any moisture or humidity. That means that whether you’ve just cleaned the floors or had a very steamy shower with the windows closed before we come, our moisture meter will detect it. As a result, we recommend that customers refrain from mopping floors, cleaning walls, or doing any other job that may entail water.
