Termite Removal – Hills & Country
We have lots of clients in The Hills and Country where we are killing nests, doing house eradication’s and setting up our trap systems for. We find Nasutitermes (Termites which have the mounds in the ground) only found in the hills and these termites quite often enter houses.
These area’s also have the highest amounts of termites and the biggest variety of termites. We have had great success doing direct colony eradication’s with both Coptotermes and Nasutitermes as well as using our traps system throughout the Hill’s area.
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.
