  Termites Attack 1 in 4 homes in the Melbourne VIC region  

Termites are a major worry Recent industry surveys suggest that about one in four homes situated in the Melbourne VIC region will suffer a termite infestation.

Beware To make matters worse your home insurance policy will NOT cover the damage from termites which may involve costly replacement of structural timbers in the floor, wall and roof.
Most homes in the Melbourne VIC region are at significant risk of termite attack, especially where eucalypt gum trees are close by within a 100 meter radius of the building.
termites can build a sub-nest in a wall cavity of a home   Picture of a Termite Nest inside a Wall Cavity
Termite inspector examines a large above-ground termite nest built inside a wall cavity of a home.
Termites build such nests usually where moisture collects inside the wall cavity often from leaking pipes shower recess faulty guttering and down-pipes.

Your best protection is to arrange for a Termite Inspection & Report to AS.3660, including written specifications for a complete Termidor soil barrier treatment, where practicable, to protect your home.
Termite Inspection & Report to AS.3660 usually costs about $250 for an average size home depending on the time involved inspection access type of construction other rrelevant factors.
Where live Termite activity is found WR GAY Termite & Pest Control Melbourne will install especially designed termite bait stations containing a Exterra Termite Bait The bait stations are periodically monitored usually 2 to 3 weekly intervals to assess termite bait consumption and replenish bait therein.
Exterra Termite Bait contains an IGR insect growth regulator that prevents the worker termite from regrowing it's external skeleton after moulting Worker termites ingesting the bait will feed partly digested timber and the bait to other termites in the central nest Termites cannablise other dead termites thereby hastening elimination of the entire colony click here for more details
  WR GAY Termite & Pest Control uses the Safest most Effective products  
  Safety first: Recently a new range of pest control products have entered the marketplace, including hi-tech baits for the control of termites, cockroaches and ants Although much safer to use in and around the home these products require a far higher level of skill to ensure an effective result.
  For professional pest control WR GAY uses safer most effective products commercially available in Australia - but are more expensive than older style hazardous alternatives.
Termidor and Premise soil treatment termiticides and the Exterra Termite Baiting System are used as the most effective and safer for use in and around the home.
Premise soil treatment termiticide was developed and is made by Bayer Australia.
Premise & Termidor provide effective for long term protection from subterranean termites they exhibit a delayed lethal effect enough time to be transferred back to the central colony often resulting in the complete eradication of the termite colony.

Exterra Termite Bait is very low hazard product once eaten by termites it stops their moulting process so they die the delayed lethal effect allows time for the bait to be fed by regurgitation to other termites highly effective at termite colony elimination.

BEWARE the older style more toxic pesticides (solvent based) are commonly used by the fly by night "cut-price" operators in the local pest control industry refer to the Consumer Advice section of this website for consumer protection advice on selecting a professional termite and pest control service.

termite   We recommend to read the Termites section herein to help you assess your home's level of risk and which termite control methods will best protect your property.
Alternative termite control and eradication methods aim at exploiting behavioural characteristics of subterranean termites in varying types of building situations.
