Do you eradicate any other pests? At TFN we deal mainly with termites as we are focused on being the leaders in natural termite protection and eradication.
Do you eradicate black ants? TFN can eradicate a black ant infestation inside your home.
How does your system prevent termites coming back? TFN’s system works as an early detection system for new termite colonies that may find there way to your property. Termites will get into the traps before your building and then TFN can bait the trap directly and eradicate the colony.
Will it affect my pets? No, the product TFN uses is in a sealed bait container, but if your pet did manage to get it open none of its contents are toxic to mammals. The bait is only harmful to termites.
On one of Robert Cameron’s visits to our Cellar Door, I was telling him about a severe ant problem that I had right next to my house. They had built their nest’s underneath several concrete slabs by the side of my house in front of the garage. During the months of January, February and March, they had increased to plague numbers.
After informing Robert of my problem, he recommended, in between several tastings of red wine, that I try a product gel from DuPont called Advion. He explained how all I needed to do was to leave a small amount of the gel near the entry to the ant holes and the worker ants would ingest the gel and return back down the holes. The other ants would subsequently eat him and come to grief themselves.
I thought this sounded too easy and that Robert was talking up this product more and more as he continued to sample.
He was on his way to Robe for some well earned R&R and said he would instruct his son to post me a sample. True to his word, a 30gm sample of Advion arrived 3 days later in the mail.
The next afternoon, I placed 6 – 7 blobs, using about 20gms of the Advion, in between all the holes which covered an area of about 9 square metres.
Within two days, the activity had decreased by about 98%. It actually worked as quickly and effectively as Robert said it would.
Thank you Robert for your advice and service.
