Termite Monitoring and Baiting
The process of controlling termite via baiting allows us to eliminate the nest, even if we are unable to find the nest. The following process explains how the system works.
House under attack from termites
The first step in the Exterra Management program is a thorough inspection of your home by an Exterra Authorised and licensed termite manager. Your Exterra Termite Manager will determine the nature of the threat to your property and recommend cultural changes you should make as well as determining optimal placement of the Exterra Termite Monitoring Stations.
Exterra Stations are placed around your property
These Stations are checked regularly. If termites are in your home, Above-ground Stations are installed. Above-ground Stations allow your termite problem to be dealt with immediately, right at the point of termite attack.
The patented Focus Termite Attractant is added to your Stations at this time. This creates the unique Termite Interception Zone around your home and ensures the termites are attracted into the Exterra Stations and do not pass between them and enter your home. This is unique to Exterra. This can mean a significant decrease in the time to colony elimination.
Termites are intercepted by Exterra Stations
Termites are easily detected in the Exterra Stations. The unique (patented) design of the Exterra Station allows for termites to be seen without disturbing them. This is very important. And the termites are not disturbed during bait application either.
The Exterra Station is baited with Requiem Termite Bait
Requiem Termite Bait is added without disturbing the termites. This is vital to achieve quick and consistent results. Requiem Termite Bait is highly palatable to termites and they readily consume it in preference to timber. In fact Australian studies show that once termites start feeding on Requiem, they stop feeding on timbers in your home! Requiem Termite Bait is also very low toxicity to you, your pets and the environment.
The Termite Colony is eliminated by the Requiem Termite Bait
The termites feed on the Requiem Termite Bait and take it back to the colony where it is fed slowly throughout the entire termite colony. Since the termites die gradually, they do not associate the colony’s demise with the Requiem Termite Bait. This ensures that the entire colony is eliminated.
The Termite Colony is eliminated….
Fresh interceptors are placed in the Exterra Stations and ‘Peace of Mind’ monitoring continues. Your property always remains susceptible to future attack from new termite colonies or other established termite colonies in your area. To relieve this constant threat the Exterra System works on an ongoing process of monitoring, baiting and eliminating. This makes its use ideal as an ongoing early warning system. And with Focus Termite Attractant there to ensure the termites find the Stations before your home – you have total security.
