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.
N.B: Instructions on installation are included with the baits and our 1800# is available to phone for advice and instruction if needed.

I recently discovered white ants infesting a localised area (I thought) in one room against an outer brick wall. Then neighbours informed me that they had found white ants in an old dead tree trunk close to the fence line. Friends recommended Termite Free Naturally, I liked the sound of them because I do not want to be breathing chemicals or have damage to wooden floors, but must admit I was doubtful about the effectiveness of these methods. Within a few minutes of their arrival I felt totally relieved that my problem was in the hands of professionals who knew exactly what to look for. They were friendly and informative, and based their methods on a knowledge of the termites’ life cycle and behaviour. As well as my house, they searched my property and immediate neighbours’ properties, also street trees within several houses on both sides of my corner block, and found the main nest which they treated. They put several bait traps where they found evidence in my house for later testing, plus installed permanent bait traps around the oustside of my house. They have made appointments and inspected when they said they would, and I have signed up for ongoing inspections as it has relieved me of the worry.
