The types of stage 1 termite treatments available for termite infestations include:
Termite Baiting: A replacement food source providing to the termites that typically contains an insect growth regulator to prevent them from moulting, eventually resulting in complete colony elimination
Termite Dusting: An appropriate pesticide dust is applied to the termite workings, the termites carry the dust particles on their bodies, eventually these particles are transferred back to the nest resulting in colony elimination
Termite Foaming: An appropriate pesticide foam is applied to the termite workings, the treated termites transfer the pesticide to other termites and eventually back to the nest, resulting in colony elimination
Direct Termiticide Application: An appropriate pesticide is applied to the nest directly, resulting in colony elimination
The type of stage 1 termite treatment used will depend on several factors including the species of termite, the location of the property and environmental conditions, the time of year, the property construction and the property owners’ preferences.

Common symptoms of termite infestation include:
It’s important to note that while these symptoms are common indicators of a termite infestation, they may vary depending on the species of termites and the extent of the infestation. If you suspect a termite problem, it is advisable to consult with a professional pest control service for an accurate assessment and appropriate treatment.
If you find termites, it is essential that you do not disturb them or spray them with any household products.
This will likely cause the termites to leave that area, making it difficult to identify the species and possibly limiting your stage 1 termite treatment options.
You should contact Surekil Pest Control as soon as possible, we will come out and carry out a full termite inspection and assess the extent of your problem and recommend the appropriate stage 1 termite treatment solution.
A stage 1 termite treatment is typically a method of using a chemical to eliminate a termite infestation from your property such as baiting, dusting, foaming or direct termiticide application but it could also be the physical removal of a termite nest if appropriate.
There is no best treatment for termites only a best treatment for a specific termite infestation.
The best termite treatment would be determined by your pest management technician based on factors including but not limited to the species of termite, the construction of the property, whether the block is flat or sloped and the soil type.
While there are DIY termite treatment options available, professional assistance is highly recommended. Effective termite control requires specialised knowledge and access to professional-grade products. Pest control professionals are trained to identify termite species, assess the extent of infestation and implement the most effective treatment methods.
Attempting to treat termites without proper training and equipment can be ineffective and may allow the infestation to worsen. That is why it is best to rely on professionals who can ensure long-lasting results.
Regular termite inspections are important for early detection and prevention of infestations. It is generally recommended to have a professional termite inspection conducted annually. However, in high-risk areas or if your property has a history of termite problems, more frequent inspections may be necessary.
Early identification of termite activity allows for prompt treatment, potentially saving you from extensive damage and costly repairs. Consult with our team to determine the inspection frequency that best suits your specific situation.
While certain treatments can be completed in a single visit, others may require multiple visits over several weeks. During the initial inspection, we will provide an estimated timeline based on your specific situation. It is important to remember that termite treatment requires patience to achieve optimal results.
