Pestaway is considered to be the market leader setting benchmarks within the Pest Control Industry and in all areas of Termite Control including electronic or sonic pest control.
Our goal is to provide Australians with the best, safest and most cost effective Pest Management Service. We ensure that all work is carried out in accordance with Industry Codes of Practice and Government Regulations.
The highest priority is given to Safety and the care of the environment.
Chemical barrier systems provide a zone of treated soil, poisonous to termites, under footings and slabs and/or around the perimeter. Chemicals registered for termite protection include synthetic pyrethroids (modified).
These chemicals have varied life expectancies (refer to product label & directions), depending on soil and exposure conditions and will therefore require replenishment at regular intervals.
Home Guard Collars or Home Guard Blue sheets can all be used to stop termites getting into buildings. Termite shields (caps and strip shields) are installed on all substructures (isolated piers or posts and along walls, etc) to provide a continuous barrier.
Utilised for new constructions, Homeguard offers the first, impregnated, service penetration collar that simply slides over the penetration pipe and locks into the slab. HomeGuard collars are available in a variety of sizes and comply with all requirements of Australian Standard AS3660 for completion of Part A pre-construction termite barriers. HomeGuard Blue is a cost effective perimeter barrier. Using an impregnated blue polypropylene sheet this is installed after the slab has been poured and cured and prior to any framework or brickwork is commencing and complies with all requirements of Australian Standard AS3660 for completion of Part B pre-construction termite barriers.
Monitoring and Intervention Systems
The principle of monitoring techniques is to have a susceptible substance in an aggregation device ("monitoring station") on which the termites aggregate and continue to feed once they have found the monitoring station.
Some toxicants eliminate the colony while others suppress the colony. However, both methods reduce potential to cause further damage to timbers.
