Our Comprehensive Termite Treatment Process

All our termite treatments are carried out according to Australian Standards 3660.2-2017, which provides you will the confidence you are receiving professional termite services.

A professional termite treatment process follows 4 key steps:

Hindmarsh Pest Control do not provide quotes over the phone.

A good termite professional needs to carry out an assessment on-site to understand the nature of the problem and construction type to make sure they make the correct recommendation.

Hindmarsh Pest Control do not charge for this on-site assessment.

Note: This on-site assessment provides the information required for a termite treatment proposal and is not the same as a formal termite inspection which provides a detailed report and is a paid service.

The termite treatment proposal will contain details on the treatment process to eliminate termites and the recommended termite management system to provide the long-term protection of your home.

In developing a termite treatment proposal, we take into account: the findings from the on-site assessment, the nature of the building construction, environment considerations, any personal preferences you may have and budget considerations.

The treatment proposal is an important document, not just a quote. It includes:

  • Details of the termite treatment methods and proposed products
  • If more than one treatment option is suitable for your particular situation, all suitable treatment methods will be included, highlighting the expected outcomes
  • The costs of the various treatment options
  • A list of limitations that could impact performance

Although the proposal is a written document, we will take time to discuss it with you in person.

In most situations, Hindmarsh Pest Control would recommend a termite baiting system, as they work continuously to eliminate termite nests around your property, reducing the termite pressure on your home.

If a formal termite inspection has not been carried out, this will be included as part of the treatment proposal and carried out before starting the treatment.

This is important to make sure the nature of the infestation is full mapped out and provided in a written report. This also allows for the treatment proposal to be modified if new information comes to hand.

Even though it may be obvious you have termites, a comprehensive termite inspection is required to fully understand the nature and scale of the termite attack, to ensure the best treatment method is recommended.

The termite inspection will:

  • Determine the areas and scale of the termite activity / damage
  • Identify all the termite entry points
  • Try and locate the termite nest(s) attacking your home
  • Determine which termite species is causing the problem
  • Identify any construction faults that may have allows the termites to enter
  • List any environment conditions which may have contributed to the termite attack

There are two parts to a termite treatment:

  1. Eliminate active termites in the building
  2. Install a termite management system to provide long term protection.

With termite baiting systems the treatment to eliminate the active termites and the installation of a termite baiting system around the building occur at the same time. If a liquid soil treatment is being installed as the long term protection, the elimination of termites from inside the building needs to be confirmed before treating the soil around the building.

Eliminating active termites

The first step in any termite treatment is to try and locate and eliminate the nest. If a nest is located we will treated it or physically destroy it (if possible).

However, since nests are often located underground and are well hidden, and could be up to 100 m from the building, it can be very difficult!And even if a nest is located, there is no way of knowing that it is the nest that is attacking your home.

However, the key objective is to eliminate active termites from the building.

Hindmarsh Pest Control use termite baits, which not only eliminate active termites from the building by will also kill the nest the nest attacking your home. Learn more about termite baiting

Eliminating termites from inside the property and killing the colony normally takes several months.

Installing a termite management system

There are two options for termite management systems to provide the long termite protection:

  • Termite monitoring and baiting systems
  • Liquid termiticide treatments to the soil

Generally we recommend the use of termite monitoring and baiting systems for protecting structures for 5 reasons:

  1. The main reason is that baiting systems working continuously to eliminate termite nests on your property, thus reducing termite pressure on your home
  2. They can be used with a wide range of construction types
  3. They deliver protection in a wide range of soil types
  4. They are environmentally smart – no spraying of insecticides
  5. They can be installed at the same time as carrying out the elimination treatment

At Hindmarsh Pest Control we use the latest termite monitoring and baiting system – Sentricon AlwaysActive. For more information on AlwaysActive and baiting go to our termite baiting page.

Sometimes, either due to site requirements or customer preference, we will install a liquid termite treatment into the soil around and under the property. In such situations we use Altriset termiticide due to its excellent safety profile. It’s unique mode of action means it only impacts a few species of insect (including termites)… it doesn’t even effect honeybees. This makes it ideal to use around homes, especially where there may be concerns with children and pets. However, we need to wait until the termites have been eliminated from the house before treating the soil around the building.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Termite managements systems (baiting systems and soil treatments) are designed to prevent the concealed termite entry. Although unlikely, termites can still get into your home, but they would have to choose a route that is visible. This is one of the key reasons why even with a termite management system in place it is important to have annual termite inspections. (Also important to maintain any warranty).

We love everything about Simon's work.

There was also no personal service like Simon provides us.My partner and I highly recommend Simon for your pest & termite issues, we're so happy, thank you Simon 🙂

Simon gave me a quote two and a half years ago but I opted to go with another company much to my dismay and dissatisfaction. Recently because of the ongoing termite problems in my home I am employed Simon and he has baited and inspected. He was punctual, reliable and has a thorough understanding of his trade. He was very informative answered all my questions clearly and spent many more hours on my property than originally anticipated however did not alter his original quote that he had given me. I would highly recommend Simon and his company to anybody who has any pest problems in their home

We found the signs of termites in our home 4 years ago and of the companies my husband called, Simon from HPC was the only one who came out to inspect that same day, on a Saturday afternoon. Fortunately the baiting removed all activity and we have continued monitoring and regular inspections, and feel secure in Simon's knowledge and expertise to keep our house safe. Very professional, reliable and responsive service and we would definitely recommend HPC to anyone.

Excellent company which is thorough and professional in every aspect. The job was not rushed and the pest controller, Paul, listened carefully to my request. The pool area was treated for ants, and the rest of the property for spiders and other unwanted insects. We have used them before and I would not hesitate to use them again. Highly recommend Hindmarsh Pest control.
