How to treat Termites?

How to treat termites in a house

If you, or one of our technicians, have found live termites in your house, in a tree stump, or a retaining wall, and there are still good numbers of the critters, then we have a chance to apply the initial treatment. The purpose of this treatment or baiting program is to stop them from chewing your house and if possible to eradicate the termite colony.

The initial treatment is not the final solution; it is just a topical treatment to the area where live termites are evident on the day. It is vitally important to install a termite management system around your home to prevent the termites from eating another part of your house.

A effective method of treating live termites in a structure is to apply Termidor as a topical treatment by injecting it in a foam matrix directly into the affected timbers.

All our Technicians have a special foaming machine that allows the right amount to be applied to the appropriate areas. The direct application to live termites ensures rapid mortality. But there is another advantage of using Termidor as a foam application.
Once the foam drys, it stays as a non-detectable poison. If any new termites were to come back into the treated area, they too would pick up the active ingredient and it would continue to be passed through the colony.

Termidor Foan

Termidor dust is a new dusting formulation. It is basically the Termidor compound in a dust form. Once we have established the extent of the infestation we will drill small holes into the termite workings and gently apply it by hand puffing the Termidor dust. Once it has been applied in to their workings, the termites carry the dust particles on their bodies and eventually back to the nest (where ever that may be).

Being a very social and efficient insect it doesn’t take long for the active ingredient “fipronil” to be transferred throughout the colony.


The wonderful thing about Termidor dust is that it’s very safe to apply to domestic environments and has been proven to take as little as 2 to 4 weeks to eradicate a colony. We are finding that Termidor dust is very successful in the two prevalent types of termites in Brisbane. See Also: Termidor Dust Brochure

This is a non-repellent foam that is applied from a can into termite workings. The active ingredient, Imidacloprid, is a transfer poison that the termites don’t detect. They come in contact with the foam residual and readily transfer it back to the foraging nest. It is a very safe and effective chemical with no major drawbacks (MSDS):


  • Foam treatment using Termidor or Premise.

  • Dusting treatment using Termidor dust.

  • Baiting program using Above-ground bait stations.

One of our experienced technicians can assess the degree of infestation in your home. Depending on the type of termite and type of structure you have, he will advise you on the most appropriate approach.
