John French Baiting
In many instances the termite colony can not be found. Termites can travel up to 100 metres and may not be located above ground. In these cases a baiting method is used in which termites are fed growth regulator which they take back to the colony. These termites are feeding the queen and other termites in the colony thus the whole colony will be wiped out.
Treating Termites Outside
Treating Venus Traps: It is recommended Venus termite traps are located around the building to warn of termite activity and allow baiting of colony. Once a trap has been hit, growth regulator treatment is secured on trap. Feeding termites will eat the treatment and take it back to the colony infecting the queen and other termites and eliminating the colony.
Treatment is sold as part of the complete protection package. It comes in a double pack with 2 replacement wood packs. A double treatment pack is enough to kill most termite colonies. In some instances where the colony is not very large only one pack will be required.
Treatment comes in an enclosed container that needs water to be added to it to make it active. Once water has been added it can be screwed to the top of the Venus Trap that is being eaten by termites. Termites will feed on the bait and take it back to the colony, destroying the colony. Time taken to kill the colony will depend on the size of the colony.
Please note there may be more than one colony in an area.
Eradicating Termites Inside
Where termites are active inside building, treatment can be secured to the active site for colony elimination. It is advisable that if termites are inside you speak to a professional at Termite Free Naturally 1800 154 764 for guidance and support.

DIY treatment $880
“After discovering that white ants were destroying our floorboards and a number of doorways in our home, we contacted three conventional businesses for advice and quotes on the appropriate treatment.
We were quoted $3,000 for the sentricon system which led us to inquire further and it was suggested we discuss our problems with SA Pest Free Naturally.
Robert Cameron was quick to respond and we had a confidence in him that we did not have with other companies. He injected nematodes into the affected areas which destroyed the white ants within a matter of days and he also set up nematerm lures in the garden and two bait boxes to track down the nest.
He kept a check on the system over the ensuing months and when one of the bait boxes was teeming with white ants this was treated to eliminate the nest.
We have paid less than a third of the cost of the sentricon system.
We would highly recommend SA Pest Free Naturally for their understanding of the termite problem, their prompt and effective action and their economical approach which is chemical free.”
