    Damage Due To Termite Infestation

    Termites are not harmful to humans, but they can hurt you financially. Though several hundreds of termite species in Australia, hardly 20 feed solid wood and cause severe damage to properties.

    The vast majority of damage to the properties in Perth and the suburbs is caused by several subterranean termite species. These termites are responsible for the following ranges of wear that demand white ant barrier and termite protection in Perth:

    • These termites are highly destructive and can cause structural damage, leading to significant financial loss.
    • Termites feed on paper, books, filtration systems, swimming pool liners, insulation, and more.
    • The attack of termites on wood can make them rotten and damaged, allowing access for other pests to the interior of your property.
    • Termites can sometimes create irreversible damage. For example, this can happen when you have some wooden furniture or structure with heritage value and are attacked by pests.
    • A termite infestation can disrupt the cleanliness and upkeep of a property, leading to the need for more regular maintenance. Consequently, the presence of termites is often seen as a sign of poor property maintenance, making such properties less appealing or welcoming to others.

    Termites breed rapidly and exist in vast colonies, which can cause far more damage than you might anticipate. As such, if you notice any indications of termite activity on your property, we urge you to get in touch with us promptly. We offer thorough pest control services, including termite inspections, in Perth.

    Signs Of Termite Infestation

    Subterranean termites leave multiple footprints on the property that help the property confirm the presence of the pest. If you see any of the following termite infestation signs, you can contact us for a termite and white ant inspection in Perth:

    •  Mud shelter tubes of termites around the property, including the foundation
    •  Sagging wooden floors and doors
    •  Deposits of dry mud in the window architraves or door joints
    •  Cracked plaster and paint around the wooden structures of the property
    •  Easily damaged door jams, skirting boards, or architraves. 
    •  Earthy materials around power points. Power failures without any visible reasons

    At Tom’s Termite Control, we utilise advanced technology and tools to thoroughly inspect your property, ensuring a comprehensive assessment of all pest-related issues. Our goal is to provide you with an affordable termite inspection without compromising on quality or accuracy.

    Get Rid of Termites with Our Proven Treatment Process

    We offer complete, four-stage Termite Inspection & Treatment. The four stages of the treatment process include:

    Termite Inspection Perth

    Our pest technicians will come to your property and make a detailed inspection to identify the extent of termite infestation. With our expertise in Termite inspection Perth our team of termite control specialists will conduct a thorough examination of your property to accurately assess the extent of termite infestation.

    The examination will also include identifying and documenting the termite species, the level of property damage, the factors of your property that led to the infestation, and more. We will submit you a detailed inspection report with the infestation details, photographs, and recommendations to address the infestation.

    Termite Treatment Plan

    Our termite and white ant treatment specialists will create a tailored treatment plan based on the inspection results. The treatment plan will have the details of the termite extermination procedures, the treatment timeline, the outcome, and any special instructions to the property inhabitants.

    Sometimes, your property may require a follow-up treatment to remove the infestation and give 100 per cent termite protection. We will also include the details of the follow-up treatment in the treatment plan.

    The Extermination

    Our termite and white ant control specialists will complete the extermination procedure outlined in the treatment plan. We often use a mix of treatment procedures to get optimal pest control results. We generally use termiticides, repellents, termite baits, and termite sheets to remove pest infestation from properties.

    At Tom’s Pest Control Perth, we use only approved, safe termite treatment products and procedures as we are committed to creating a healthy environment around for customers.

    Ongoing Prevention

    A one-time termite treatment may not guarantee permanent results unless no ongoing prevention strategies exist. Therefore, we do not only give you termite extermination. However, based on your property condition, we will provide specific ongoing prevention techniques for termite and white ant protection.

    In general, the following steps can minimise the termite infestation issues at your property:

    • Clear clutter in and around your property; they can hide the termite infestation from your eyes.
    • Remove any pile of wood in your property – both exterior and interior.
    • Repair leaking plumbing, properly channel the discharge from air conditioners, address hot water system overflow, and remove anything that increases the property’s humidity.
    • Inspect the property and surroundings regularly to identify the traces of termite infestation.

    However, termite treatment in Perth costs between $250 and $300. This might rise when the property is large. Primary termite treatment solutions, such as fumigation, spraying, and dusting, might cost between $300 and $800 for a residential space.

    Why Choose Tom’s Termite Pest Control Perth

    Termite Inspection & Treatment FAQ's

    How Do I Permanently Get Rid Of Termites In My House?

    Termite infestation is one of the primary reasons for property damage worldwide. The infestation can quickly spread to various areas of your property and become widespread if you ignore the initial signs of infestation.

    Should You Cover Termite Holes?

    Tom’s Pest Control provides a comprehensive pest management service to our customers. The treatment includes ongoing control measures to prevent future infestation and addressing the damage due to current termite issues. After exterminating termites from your property, our pest technicians apply wood hardener if the holes are small or insignificant. However, if the holes are large or the damage is significant, we either add wood fillers or advise you to repair the damage. Wood fillers are putty-like material that comes in tubes and can quickly be applied to the holes for quick settling.

    What Is The Most Effective Termite Removal Treatment In Perth?

    At Tom’s Pest Control, we focus on offering termite management solutions that give lasting results. It is important to address the factors that encourage termite infestation at your property through preventive treatment measures. Therefore, we complete both wood and soil treatments to kill termites from your space and make them termite resistant. We prefer borate treatment to eliminate termites from woods and avoid future infestation. Similarly, our pest technicians will dig a trench around your property structure, mix eco-friendly termiticide with the soil, and fill the trench with the soil to create a termite barrier around the property structure. If we spot drywood termites at your property, we may also apply fumigation to kill the pest quickly.

    What Is The Fastest Way To Get Rid Of Termites Naturally?

    If you want to control the termites on your own using some natural methods, we recommend you try applying boric acid. It is a white powder and one of the preferred choices by homeowners for eliminating various pests from their environment. You can sprinkle the powder directly into the infested areas to kill the termites. Additionally, you can mix the powder with water and prepare a spray to apply it in the affected areas to address the current issues and prevent future infestation. Remember that boric acid is a poisonous chemical, and you shouldn’t forget to wear masks and goggles while applying. Also, keep children and pets away from the spayed or sprinkled areas.

    Is Termite Damage Covered By Insurance?

    Home insurance programs do not generally cover termite damage. Insurances are designed to address sudden and accidental damage, whereas termite infestation and associated damage happen over a period of a few weeks or months. Importantly, any damage due to animals or insects is not covered by insurance plans. While this is the case, you can still check with your insurance provider to see if they give limited coverage for termite issues. You can also check the terms and conditions of your home insurance to see the inclusions and exclusions.

    How Quickly Does Termite Treatment Work?

    At Tom’s Pest Control, we use highly effective termite control methods that start working immediately. You would see dead termites in the infested areas in a day. If your property has extensive termite infestation issues, it may take a few days to eliminate the termite population from your environment. It usually takes a few days for large termite colonies to reach the treatment up to the queen and kill the complete colony. During a termite inspection, if we identify a large number of termite colonies or widespread infestation in a property, we usually recommend complete termite management covering the entire property to get the best results.

    How Often Should You Treat Your House For Termites?

    Professional termite removal procedures generally give excellent results for a few years. At Tom’s Pest Control, our procedures can protect your property from re-infestation for at least five years. We create tailored termite control plans after analysing the pest issues at your property and provide targeted treatment to get the best results. While performing the terminate control, our technicians will confirm the period to which the treatment is effective. Regardless of this, we request all our customers to complete termite inspections at properties every year to identify any early signs of re-infestation.

    Should You Not Buy A House With Termites?

    The reality is that every wood structure is prone to termite attack under favourable conditions. However, you need to safeguard yourself from a financial setback while buying properties. Therefore, you should watch out for any signs of termite infestation and call for a professional termite inspection. Based on the inspection findings, you can make a decision and negotiate with the seller for a better deal. The inspection will give you accurate information to treat and repair the property to bring back the property in condition. However, if the property has significant damage, the decision should be based on your capacity to invest time, effort, and money in restoring the property.

    What Is The Best Time Of Year To Treat For Termites?

    Termites are a highly destructive pest type and can quickly spread throughout the property if you ignore the infestation. Therefore, you shouldn’t wait for the best time to perform termite control. In many cases, the infestation and damage are extensive than you see outside. Therefore, you should seek professional termite control as soon as you see the signs of infestation.
    When it comes to the best time for termite treatment, the pest is usually inactive during winter and becomes active in spring and multiplies in large numbers. Therefore, winter is generally regarded as the best time for a termite inspection, and spring is highly suitable for pest extermination.

    How Long Does Termite Treatment Last?

    Our termite treatments are targeted and advanced to give you results for at least five years. Based on the level of infestation, we might want to complete both wood treatment and soil treatment to get long-lasting results. Many properties are prone to termite re-infestation after the completion of extermination. Our preventive treatments minimise the risks of re-infestation and assure you more durable results. Regardless of all these, we recommend you get a yearly termite inspection at your property to identify any early signs of infestation. When termites infest a property, it always carries the risks of re-infestation – though at a very minimal level during the initial years of our treatment.

    How Does Termite Treatment Work?

    Our termite control treatments usually start giving results in a day. If your property has multiple termite colonies and complex infestation, it may take a few days to exterminate the termites and make them pest-free completely.
    It is important to note that termite treatments work like slow poison and kill all the termites from your space. The queen of a termite species live inside the colony, and the treatment should reach up to it to kill the entire colony. Our targeted treatment using termiticides can ensure the complete elimination of termites from your space.

    Termidor Termite Treatment® FAQ’s

    Is My Termidor® Treatment Ok After Heavy Rain?

    The key to the suitability of any termiticide in a wet environment is the propensity to leach through a soil profile upon a wetting event. The main measure for ability to leach is the product’s water solubility. Termidor has very low water solubility and therefore will not leach through the soil. Termidor tightly binds to organic matter in soil, which also limits its movement. All of these physical and chemical characteristics contribute to Termidor remaining active in the treated zones close to the foundations of the structure for as long as the soil and foundations have not been compromised or the normal time span for degradation has elapsed.

    This includes soils that have been located in flooded areas. As an example, whilst conducting long-term field trials throughout Australia, a Townsville site suffered a major flood which completely submerged the Termidor treated plots for a lengthy period. It can be seen from the graph below that there was no effect on the amount of Termidor present in the soil.

    My House Was Subject To Major Flooding. Is My Termidor Treatment Still Working?

    This depends on a number of factors. Your Accredited Termidor Applicator is in the best position to determine this via a thorough inspection and written report. As a guide, Termidor should be used to re-establish the treated zones when:

    • Soil erosion next to foundations has removed protective termite treatment zones.
    • Any rectification work has moved or removed treated soil.
    • Flooding has brought new, untreated soil next to the foundation.
    • Foundation elements have shifted/moved or soil subsidence has occurred and untreated soil now requires a Termidor treatment.
    • Treatments with other more water soluble products are suspected to no longer be in place to protect the structure (from previous use of non-Termidor materials).
    • Adjacent patios, driveways, concrete pathways, asphalt pads, etc have moved and exposed soil areas that can now be treated. Especially when repaired and previous soil is moved.
    • Landscaping has been repaired, added, etc and the previously treated zones have been disturbed.
    • Repairs to the structure (especially foundation repairs) leads to the presence of untreated zones.

    After receiving the inspection and written report it can be a little confusing with an overload of information. It is important that you sit down and discuss the report with your Accredited Termidor Applicator to understand the recommendations (why they are important), agree on a plan to carry out the recommendations and review the success after implementing the recommendations. Following this advice is very important, as it will affect the quality of the treatment and may also affect any warranty given by the pest manager.

    What Does All This Flooding Do To The Termite Threat?

    The termite threat in areas that have suffered excessive rain events may actually increase. Termites increase their population based on a number of factors including access to moisture and food sources. Obviously after heavy sustained rainfall, the soil will hold moisture for a long period of time which the termites will enjoy. Added to this is the increase in building timber and tree debris left behind after the water recedes.

    Quite often this is buried in land fill or stacked in a pile which adds a new food source which can sustain a larger termite population. As a consequence, termite pressure will, in time, be more severe. Therefore it is imperative that an Accredited Termidor Applicator performs a thorough inspection of the site to assess the risk and provide recommendations to protect your home from future termite infestations. These should be conducted at least every 12 months into the future.

    How Soon After Heavy Rain Or Flooding Can A Termidor Treatment Be Done?

    As stated above, Termidor binds strongly to the soil particles and will not leach through the soil profile. However, this is based on soil that is not saturated at the time of treatment. If the soil is saturated, the Termidor (and any other termiticide) will remain in the water phase with little chance to bind to organic matter in the soil profile. Therefore the soil needs time to dry out enough so that the soil profile is not in a saturated state. This drying time depends on the type of soil, site drainage and the weather conditions after the original wetting event. Your Accredited Termidor Applicator is in the best position to answer this question.

    What Makes Termidor So Effective?

    The crucial advantage Termidor has over many other products is that it doesn’t repel termites. Termites are able to detect the older chemicals in the soil and stay away from them. That means the termites remain active and unaffected, still exploring the area and potentially looking for ways into your home. Termites can’t detect the treated zone so, as they continue to forage through the soil and unknowingly come into contact with Termidor.

    The Genuine Termidor Transfer Effect™

    Because affected termites can’t detect Termidor, they carry it back to the nest on their bodies and pass it on to other termites, hence the devastating Genuine Termidor Transfer Effect. Termidor can control whole termite populations faster than any other treatment, but it is relatively slow-acting in individual termites. This means termites have ample time before dying to spread Termidor to their nest, and the entire colony.  The combination of Termidor being undetectable in the soil and its Transfer Effect mean no other termiticide performs as well as Termidor.

    Why Should You Insist On Termidor?

    Over 400,000 homeowners for the past 18 years have been satisfied with Termidor protecting their homes, without a single product failure. That is why it comes with an eight-year warranty and is Australia’s number one trusted brand for termite control. Termidor’s Genuine Transfer Effect™ takes advantage of the social behaviors of termites living and feeding in large colonies where they are in constant contact.

    When a single termite comes into contact with a Termidor treated zone, it will unknowingly transfer it back to the colony on its body, infecting termites that have not even been near the Termidor treated zone. This is the ‘Transfer Effect’ and a key reason why no other termiticide performs as well as Termidor.

    Termites can’t detect Termidor due to its innovative, non-repellent technology, so they can pick up a lethal dose while foraging in treated areas. As a result, Termidor works quicker and more effectively than other inferior termite control options.

    What’s Involved?

    1. An Accredited Termidor Applicator will conduct a thorough inspection of your property – should termites be found, a treatment with Termidor Foam will be required to quickly stop activity within your home.
    2. A trench will be dug around your home in preparation for the Termidor application.
    3. Termidor will be applied to the soil as it is backfilled.
    4. Holes are drilled through paths and concrete areas or concrete is cut away to gain access to the soil.
    5. Pavers, if not concreted in, must be lifted, the soil treated underneath and the pavers re-laid.
    6. Some soils, such as heavy clays, may be removed and replaced with a sandy loam before treatment.
    7. A follow-up visit is recommended by your Accredited Termidor Applicator.
    8. Ongoing inspections of your home and surrounds at least every 12 months, and more frequently in high risk situations, are recommended.
