Only products approved by the FDA/FPA and and/or Government Authorities are used. Most importantly we know termites in your local area. We have pest technicians on the ground in the following key locations and other surrounding regions:
Termite Treatment Options
These treatments are commonly used as a preventive measure to deter termite entry into a home and also to provide ongoing protection after activity has been discovered and treated.
A liquid termiticide is directly applied through a wand to exposed soil next to external walls of your home. In areas where there is paving, concrete or other hard surfaces the chemical is injected through drill holes.
Certain types of termiticides provide a deterrent to termite entry. Other types are undetectable by termites but the chemical stays with termites which leads to either a large reduction in numbers or elimination of the colony.
The chemicals do break down over time. To remain effective the soil will need resprayed at least every 5 years.
With Liquid Termite Barrier, you'll receive 100% control in less than 120 days. We'll apply a liquid treatment barrier around your home, which termites will ingest, killing them in the process. We have the barriers inspected to ensure the "treated zone" is working properly. We’ll also provide a thorough interior inspection to give you added peace of mind.
For effective termite extermination our experienced technicians apply Termiticide along the foundation or exterior of the home thru soil injection and drilling or thru trenching. Once applied, the termiticide blends into the soil and is transferred to termites as they come in contact with the agent. The termiticide is also transferred among the termite colony as infected termites come in contact with other termites. Termiticide product kills termites both by ingestion as well as by contact.
Our termite control treatment service will terminate an existing termite infestation and protect against future occurrences.
Jansen Anti Termite treatment Reticulation system piping method
Termite Treatment through piping method/Termite tubing system also known as Pipe Reticulation system is a revolutionary system designed to effectively treat the area under concrete slabs or before flooring is done . It is system which is replenishable unlike older termite treatment methods. The reticulation system is a network of underground specially designed pipes( rubberised membrane) to induce anti-termite chemical uniformly throughout your Building’s foundations. Regulating the chemical flow, this system helps to protect against invasion by termites in future which would otherwise enter from the outside of your home or from under the floor. We recommend Termite reticulation system for Anti termite treatment because it is extremely durable and gives a very robust protection to a new building and works as a highly effective termite shield for years together. Our Anti termite Reticulation system is being widely used in construction industry including new homes, offices and other commercial buildings.
How it work?
It involves lying of special flexible, continuously perforated 16 mm diameter pipe along the internal periphery of the building and center of the flooring using grid design (every 5 feet). This placement of perforated pipes (made of rubberised membrane) is done along the flooring just before laying of the sand bed/sub grade or before fixing the floor marble/tiles. This perforated pipe has emitters fabricated in them which allow uniform distribution of termiticide under the entire flooring . These emitters distribute chemical at a pre calculated rate, and reduces the risk of any area being untreated. Use of continuously perforated porous pipe ensures no debris , clay or concrete will block the pipe and make it ineffective. The pipe structure pushes the substrate aside and prevents clogging. Periodical recharging of termite chemical. Generally these junction boxes are installed on the outer walls in a concealed manner or match the aesthetics of the building exteriors. Refilling points are installed along the external wall so that the termiticide could be applied from outside the building without causing any disturbance to the occupants. Termite control chemical emulsions are induced at low pressure through these junction points (refilling points). Low pressure ensures even distribution of termiticide emulsion at all delivery points and finally to entire network of porous pipe. Tests have been conducted on our system and it has been proved that over a 30 metre distance there is complete and uniform distribution of termiticide along the entire length of a single line system. No other Anti termite treatment method can match these results. This creates a continuous chemical barrier under the floor and impede termites invasion through soil and deny access to the structure of the building. Balancing of network of reticulate piping system is an important component of any termite Pipe reticulation treatment method.
The advantages of Jansen Termite Reticulation treatment
No excavation or Drilling the holes in floor to inject termite chemical is required.
Tedious work of removing the furniture in the area is not required.
No pungent smell of the termite chemical is released in the premise.
No exposure of insecticides to occupants of the building.
Installation of piping system is warranted for 20 years with refilling every Third year.
Unlike conventional termite injection method there is even distribution of the chemical under the floor.
No Stains discolouring or marks on the costly floors.
The cost benefit ratio when compared with traditional methods of termite treatment, over longer periods is considerable as recharge costs are significantly lower than a drill and fill method.
Construction contractors and builders are not required to make special provisions for the Anti termite Pipe reticulation system during preparation for construction and no construction activity is held up.
Thereafter rough sketch diagram for piping network is prepared to ensure minimal interference with other building procedures. You can obtain the copy of our plan and discuss suitable delivery (refill) points and consult with your Builder/Architect/contractor. Once the plan is approved and estimate approved, we set date for start of installation and end date for procedure. Once the job is complete and system recharged with the chemical, we hand over the site network plan to the customer for his future reference.
Termite Baiting System
The technology to kill termites using baits is now widely available. Instead of injecting chemicals into the soil which will only last a few years and potentially contaminate the environment, termite baits are placed directly into the ground around the outside of a structure. Termite baiting is simple and can also be used as a preventive measure to detect termites before they become a problem. Termite baiting allows termite control in situations where the structure is untreatable with soil termiticides, there is concern about pesticide use and/or in structures where soil treatments have failed.
HOW DOES TERMITE COLONY BAITING WORK ?
Termite baiting works by killing the workers in the termite colony. When the worker termites have been eliminated, the colony is starved of food and goes into a suppression phase or "decline". The reproductives, queens and soldiers die of starvation because they cannot feed themselves. When the queens and reproductives cannot eat because there are no workers to feed them, they die and the termite colony starves and is virtually eliminated. To effectively bait for termites, a pre-baiting strategy must be implemented:
Step 1 - Pre-Baiting
In order to establish a feeding connection with the termite colony, the scout termites have to locate a food source and the worker termites must feed on it. Termites eat wood and cellulose, nothing else. In the early stages of the pre-baiting process, the termite scouts or foragers will find the bait stations and "tag" them with a "pheromone" which is a scent trail for the worker termites to follow. Next, the worker termites will follow the pheromone trail established by the scout termites and begin feeding. This process establishes the feeding cycle with the termite colony.
Termite detector stations - often called monitors or just termite bait stations, are specifically engineered to encourage termite feeding and to establish a feeding connection with the termite colony. It has been said that termite detector stations are "windows" to the termite colony. It is important that a solid feeding connection be established in an area where the termites can continually feed without disturbing them. That is the reason that Termite detector stations were developed. Termite detector stations only contain wood. This wood is called detection wood or "interception" wood. It only serves to establish a feeding cycle with the scout and worker termites so that a toxicant can later be used. When a solid feeding connection has been established with the worker termites, the wood can be replaced with a toxic substance that the termites cannot detect, which kills them. When the worker termites die, the colony cannot feed itself, so the termite population slowly starves, dies and the colony eventually crashes. There are several different bait station designs pictured below. They are all equally capable of establishing a termite feeding cycle. Ease of use is what is important.
Step 2 - Using Toxicant (Growth Hormone)
After the worker termites have begun feeding and a solid connection is established through the worker termites with the colony, a growth hormone is placed inside the feeding station. The termites are continually fed this hormone until the feeding stops. The length of the feeding cycle and the amount of hormone used depends on the termite population and the size of the colony(s).
Step 3 - Termite Colony Control
When enough worker termites have been killed 2 things happen. First, the delivery of outside food sources to the colony is eliminated and second, the colony depletes its internal food sources. This causes the queens, kings, soldiers and reproductives within the colony to slowly starve. The worker termites directly feed the soldiers and the queens. Without the worker termites, the colony cannot feed itself, and will soon exhaust it's food supply. When all food sources have been depleted, the colony begins its decline. This is the goal of termite baiting. Termite baiting is really a simple process, but can be confusing since there are so many bait products to choose from. The bottom line is that all termite bait systems work. Some take longer than others to achieve control.
Termite Baiting System Installation Procedures by Jansen Pest Control
termite baiting system components are prepared: Above ground stations, In ground stations and termite bait
Above ground stations are installed on infested areas identified in step 1 by using small screws or duct tape to hold it in place and sometimes cellulose paste is applied to draw termites into the stations
with the Above ground station in place, termite bait cartridge containing a slow acting toxicant mixed with attractants is placed on the slot and closed, ready to start termite feeding until the next inspection.
In-ground Termite Interceptors are assembled. It contains timber interceptors to direct termites scavenging on the ground into it.
In-ground interceptors are embeded on the soil along the perimeter of the property to be protected at intervals of 5-8 meters
Where property is surrounded by concrete or tiled, In-concrete termite interceptors are installed by coring on the concrete
