The Australian Standard 3660.2 2000 recommends that all homes have a minimum of one termite inspection each year.  Core Pest Management will send you a reminder when your termite inspection is due to ensure that your home is always protected.


Should you suspect or find any termites, DO NOT DISTURB THEM!  Do not spray them with any household chemical.  Ring Core Pest Management immediately to book an inspection. We will conduct a thorough inspection of your entire home and recommend the necessary steps to be taken in order to exterminate the problem.


Our inspections include a thorough examination of the external and internal areas of your home as well as the roof void and subfloor where termites can access your property.  Core Pest Management then provides a comprehensive written report in accordance with Australian Standards.  Should we find termites, a number of options will be presented to you.


There are many different termite control systems available and Core Pest Management offer a comprehensive range of solutions to ensure the ongoing treatment and protection of your home/premises.  At Core Pest Management, we provide a wide range of differing termite services which include:


  • Standard Timber Pest Inspections
  • Pre-Purchase Timber Pest Inspections

  • Pre-construction - Homeguard and Termguard Reticulation barrier systems for new properties
  • Inground baiting systems.


Termite Treatment Options


SPOT TREATMENTS


Spot treatments are generally only used where termites are present outside of a house, such as in a nearby tree on a property.  

Spot treatments have an immediate impact on termite activity but should not be used as a substitute for an effective termite perimeter system.



TERMITE MONITORING AND BAITING STATIONS


Non-chemical termite monitoring and baiting stations are used when there is current termite activity and also as a long-term

preventative measure.  External baiting stations can be inground, above ground and into concrete. Termite Bait Stations are

placed around your property and routinely monitored by trained technicians to detect termite activity.  


Once installed, the Sentricon System forms a ring of protection around your property that does not degrade over time. It gets

to the heart of the issue and eliminates the entire colony by using smart, effective science that turns the natural foraging behavior

of termites against them. Over more than 20 years, Sentricon has protected more than 3 million homes, and is relied upon by

homebuilders, architects and managers of commercial properties. Proven results mean peace of mind when you choose Sentricon.



POST CONSTRUCTION TERMITE BARRIERS


Core Pest Management's Post Construction is the application of liquid termiticides directly into soil areas that abut the external walls of

your home/premises.  Where hard surfaces such as paving or concrete exist, small holes are drilled and the chemical is then injected

into each hole.  Chemical treatments are the most common preventative measure applied to deter concealed termite entry.  Both repellents

and non-repellants chemicals can be applied to the external perimeter of your home/premises.


Core Pest Management use Termidor(non-repellant) as it will not only eliminate the current activity (including the nest) but will also provide

proven protection against termite entry and will continue to control termites for at least five to eight years. When compared with other

termiticides, Termidor has consistently provided termite control over a significantly longer period. When applied according to the label directions,

the Termidor Inside-Out program has minimal impact on the environment.


The Termidor system's success lies with the unique "Transfer Effect". Termites live in large colonies and are highly social insects.  They are

in continual contract with one another.  When a single termite comes in contact with Termidor, it unknowingly carries Termidor on its body

and transfers it back to the colony.  This one infected termite then infects the entire colony despite the fact it has never been in contact with a

Termidor treated zone.


PRE-CONSTRUCTIONTERMITE BARRIERS


The Pre-Construction systems installed by Core Pest Management are Homeguard and Termguard Reticulation System.


Termguard Reticulation System is most practical when installed before external concrete, paving or decking is laid.  It allows for the

reinstatement of a chemical barrier around the foundations of the home/premises. The system comprises of a network of underground

pipes that are installed during construction and then pressurised with a registered termiticide. Termguard’s termite reticulation systems have

been the perfect partner to provide an effective, replenishable barrier, yet minimise the total impact of the Environment.


The Homeguard system is a continuous, physical barrier which is impregnated with a registered termiticide, Biflex, that kills termites on

contact.  It has been scientifically proven to create a physical and chemical barrier that repels and kills subterranean termites. Designed and

manufactured specifically for the construction industry, HomeGuard is installed on the foundations of new buildings or extensions to provide a

continuous barrier, which prevents concealed entry of subterranean termites into the building. The HomeGuard product range is manufactured

in Australia from polymer based products and uses a leading liquid pest control chemical; Bifenthrin.
