We offer a wide range of termite control services to meet all your termite control needs.
OUR TERMITE CONTROL PROCESS
Whether you need preventative termite treatment or a treatment for ACTIVE TERMITES we will need to complete a full termite inspection prior to any termite treatments, this is so we can identify the type of termites and what type of service we will need to apply to your home.
During this inspection, we will check the interior and exterior, and any accessible roof voids and Subfloor spaces to look for signs of termites, termite damage, water damage, and water leaks that need repair.
Once our inspection is complete, we’ll create a report detailing our findings, then discuss the results with you.
We’ll let you know what we found, offer advice on preventative measures you can take, and go into detail about our service and warranty options.
We offer several types of termite treatments based on your needs and the findings of our inspection.
Preventative treatment: We apply our preventative termite control to the structure and foundations and were we locate any termite activity.
The Most Common Termites Found In Katoomba is Subterranean termite’s
We use Termidor® to eliminate subterranean termite infestations. Using the trench and treat method, we’ll apply Termidor® around the entire perimeter of your home to protect it from termites.
Termidor® is a product that termites can’t detect.
Once they pick it up on their bodies, they can transfer it to other colony members.
This transfer effect eventually eliminates the entire colony. This termite treatment includes up to an 8 year warranty.
DECIDING ON THE BEST TERMITE TREATMENT FOR YOUR HOME.
Choosing the right termite treatment for your house depends on a few different factors, type of construction, areas infested, type of Termites, and your budget.
Type of Construction
The way your home was built can influence which termite treatment method will be best to apply, things such as the size of your home, size of your porches, were your gardens are, type of foundation, slab or on piers, this will all determine which termite products will be ideal for your property.
If you already have a termite infestation, then it would be wise to act fast.
If termites are already in your property, applying an above ground baiting system can be installed on the activity to deal with the termite colony, this is fast way to control any infestation.
Then applying a liquid termiticide or a foam termiticide to eliminate a termite infestation quickly should be the next step, however this will depend on the type of construction your property is built from.
No property is safe from termites!
Termites are the cause of the greatest economic losses of timber in service in Australia. Independent data compiled by State Forestry shows 1 in every 5 homes is attacked by termites at some stage in its life.
More recent data would indicate that this is now as high as 1 in every 3, Australia’s homes are attacked by subterranean termite species, (white ants) are the most destructive timber pests in the world.
In fact it can take “as little as 3 months for a termite colony to severely damage almost all the timber in a home”.
After considering the type of construction of your home and any active termite infestations, it is time to consider the cost of your termite treatment.
Generally, the initial installment of a termite baiting system is less costly than a traditional liquid treatment. However a combination of both can result in the best long term protection. There are some exceptions to this rule, but typically your results will be 100% destruction of termite infestation.
Ongoing inspections should also be added to your budget.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO TREAT A HOUSE FOR TERMITES?
Determining the termite treatment cost for a house will depend on the size and the type of construction.
Other variables may come into play such as rubble or debris in the subfloor that needs to be removed lifting and removing pavers or gardens.
For example, a house built on a concrete slab foundation will not require any work underneath like a home built with a subfloor would.
Both slab and subfloor homes will require trenching and treating the exterior foundation walls as well as drilling and treating porches or patios.
A slab construction home will most likely be brick veneer with gardens and pathways that must be drilled and treated. This is a variable that can drive up the cost due to the additional labor and termite chemicals it requires.
Termite baiting system installations are fairly consistent in cost since they require less labor by comparison.
Any active termite tubes can also influences the treatment price, limited inspections and conditions will also come into play of the cost of any treatments.
Every house is going to be a little different when it comes to pricing termite protection. However, getting a quote that is customized for your needs is FREE
The average cost for the stranded home can be from $3,500.00 to $7,700.00
You should also take into consideration that at Redback pest control we only use the top termite control Chemical Termidor in combination with Trelona (ATBS) Bait Stations.
