Safeguard Your Home with Our Expert Services

First of all, it’s important to note that termites are subterranean. This means that they travel underground undetected. They are particularly dangerous because in most cases, once you have noticed the damage, it is highly likely they have been there for some time causing some form of structural damage. Commonly known as ‘white ants’, apart from their social habit of living in colonies as several forms, they do not resemble true ants.

We at Adaptive Pest Control pride ourselves on our ability to adapt and overcome to any termite problems that may be present at your home, and not only eradicate your existing problem, but prevent any further future termite activity or damage.

Signs of Termite Infestation

Here are some clues of termite presence:

Mud Tubes: Tubes made of mud on walls or foundations.

Wood Damage: Hollow, rippling or crumbling wood.

Dropped Wings: Wings left behind by termite alates.

Tiny Wood Pellets: Termite droppings that look like small pellets.

Strange Paint: Paint that bubbles or looks odd.

What puts your home at risk?

Moisture! Moisture! Moisture!

Termites predominantly look for areas that have high moisture content in the soil and therefore have a high probability of finding moist timber, which, being a conducive condition is ideal as a food source for termites.

What should I do if I find termites?

Stop work immediately! Termites when exposed to excessive amounts of ultraviolet light and general disturbance, will change direction, move to other areas of the home, and continue feeding on timber and creating “mud leads”. Thus, making it more difficult for pest control technicians to detect their next movements. It is also common for people to spray termites with household pesticides, this is also a bad idea, as those products are typically repellent based and limit the effectiveness of the high-quality products Adaptive Pest Control would recommend and use.


Understanding the Risks of Termites at Home

Termites have the potential to cause significant harm to your property, leading to substantial structural and financial losses. Our educational segment about termite risks emphasizes the crucial need for taking proactive steps to control termite infestations. Protect your investment from the detrimental effects of termites by discovering how our services can assist you in minimizing these risks.

These points are just a few of the common paths or conducive conditions required for termites to gain entry into your home:

  • Timber stumps
  • Poorly ventilated sub floors
  • Pipe leaks in subfloors and wall cavities
  • Timber resting in the soil such as base boards
  • Fire wood or wood piles stacked near home
  • Garden beds against the home

Termite Treatment and Removal Options

Non repellent

Termite Barrier Treatment

Explore our termite barrier treatment, which creates a protective perimeter around your property, keeping termites at bay. This proactive measure offers long-term defence against potential infestations, ensuring your home remains termite-free.

We prefer to use Termidor SC or Termidor HE for termite control. It is a reliable chemical barrier that we apply to the soil surrounding your home or structure. Termidor has the genuine transfer effect that uses the typical characteristics of termites communicating by touch to transfer the active molecule back to the colony, hence eliminating all current termite activity and future re-infestation.

A 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 Termidor so, as they continue to forage through the soil, they unknowingly come into contact with Termidor. Termites are social insects that live together in large colonies and feed and groom each other. So, termites that have come into contact with Termidor soon pass it on to others. Even those secondarily affected termites can also pass Termidor on through feeding or contact.

Adaptive Pest Control is a registered pest control company, which is accredited to apply these premium products.


Targeted Chemical Treatments

Our targeted chemical treatments are designed to swiftly and effectively eliminate termites. Our experts use safe and approved chemicals, ensuring the complete removal of termite colonies without compromising your safety.

We use Bifenthrin as part of our termite control services. It is a kill on contact chemical that also repels any future termite activity away from your home. This product is only suitable when there is no current termite activity in your home, or you are not located in a ‘high threat’ area.
