Once termites are found to be active, TFN eradicates the colony either directly or by baiting.
Direct Eradication Method: TFN’s preferred method is to directly kill a colony. To do so TFN inspects all trees in the vicinty by drilling a small hole (harmless for the tree) into which a temperature probe is inserted to establish the presence of the termite queen.
Where the tree temperature is about 30-34c its likely a termite queen is actively reproducing. A tree’s lower temperature reading will verify that termites are just feeding on it, rather than the colony residing in it.
Indirect Eradication Method: Occasionally a colony cannot be located, in which case a Bait Trap is set. A Bait trap can be set inside the building where the active termites are currently feeding from or if you already have the TFN trap system installed the bait can be used directly on the active trap. Once the Bait Trap is installed the termites prefer to eat the bait rather than the timber they are feeding on. The bait is then carried back to the nest where it is fed to the entire colony completely eradicating the nest.
Using the described termite baiting system most colonies will be destroyed within 6-12 weeks (can take longer over the winter months). Note: Spraying will not eradicate a termite colony. It may mask the presence of the colony for a time, but unless the nest has been completely eradicated the termites will return.
Dear Scott and Staff,
It is a privilege to write this letter to you having acquired your services recently. Over the years we have had many companies come and quote work and or carry it out. Having experienced great workmanship, to unfortunately tardiness and lack of care. I used the word ‘privilege’ sincerely, as we were impressed with the duty of care, professionalism yet the personal interaction between us, you and your staff. It is obvious that the staff respect each other and love their work. Working well together with speed and efficiency. On asking them what they were doing, they didn’t hesitate to explain in detail whilst continuing their work. We felt your company is very thourough using various methods to investigate and or terminate the white ants. Clean up was great and happy that you would take away any rubbish and concrete plugs. The overall experience with your compnay and the knowledge we have gained has given us a sense of security and confidence in the products. We thank you and hope you continue to have a successful and prosperous buisiness.
Kevin and Joanne Moore
