Isoptera or termites are a group of eusocial insects which mostly feed on dead plants generally in the form of dead wood, leaf litter, soil or animal dung. They are detrivorous insects that dominate the tropical and subtropical.

These wood borers are a fantastic creation of nature, as long as they are in the jungle, you wouldn’t want a swarm of termites in your favorite mahogany furniture or the oak wood floor work you always cherished. These little bugs are economically significant as pests and can cause serious structural damage to buildings, crops or plantations.

There are different types of termites based on their shape and feeding habits. They are namely:

  • Dampwood termite
  • Drywood termite
  • Formosan termite
  • Subterranean termite
  • Conehead termite

Each one of them is dangerous in their own way and their population needs to be controlled. The pest control teams have several methods to check infestation by termites, some of them are:

  • Termite control bait– pest control professionals performs inspections and may employ monitoring stations. These are placed within the soil of the suspected inspections. After highly active areas are located bait stations replace the monitoring stations. Worker termites bring back the slow acting poisonous baits and several generations of termites are terminated.
  • Chlordane-A chemical which is widely used as an effective insecticide against termites. Its use was somewhat discontinued after 1988 because it was believed to be hazardous to humans as well, but later it was found that human casualties happened because of self misuse
  • Microwave elimination– Using the microwave elimination process includes targeting high wavelength microwaves into termite colonies for executing them. This method targets specific pests and ensures total cleansing.

Termite control Chatswood teams consist of highly trained professionals who will understand the type, location and activity of the termite swarms an initiate species specific measures to exterminate them. Residents, business places, commercial buildings, be it anywhere, no place is safe from termite attacks. But it is once the termite control Chatswood companies are on its way to the place of attack.
