Termite Treatment after Finding Termites:
A residual 3 step treatment around all structures coming up out of the ground of a building.
Until Termidor was released, protecting those homes involved chemicals that are repellent to householders as well as termites and which have to be applied in a perfect, unbroken barrier. Termidor has quickly established itself as the most effective and convenient protection for homes with no built-in barrier.
This type of termite protection doesn't depend on a repellent barrier and actually eliminates termites rather than just repelling them. This is because termites cannot detect Termidor. It has the added advantages of low toxicity and no odour. In fact, Termidor is a soil termiticide that does not require occupants to leave the house while the treatment is carried out.
Older chemical treatments create a repellent barrier that termites won't go through, but will try to find a way around. While they are usually effective, they have three main drawbacks; applying them creates a repulsive smell that lasts a day or two and can be difficult to live with; they deter termites, but do nothing to reduce the colony; and even a gap of a few centimetres in the barrier can cause the treatment to fail. Termidor supersedes those barriers with an extremely efficient in-ground trap that termites can't detect the Treated Zone. Far from being repelled by a barrier, termites forage into the Treated Zone and are killed in one of three ways:
Heavy spraying is rarely required for termite treatments.
After many years in the pest control industry Darryl & his team at ASSASSIN PEST CONTROL have amassed a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to finding termites & appropriating the most effective termite control method. Our treatments are aimed at not only eradicating your current termite problem but also ensuring that the termites will stay away in years to come.
Termites have a 200 million year evolutionary history closely related to cockroaches. They can be found right throughout Sydney and NSW. Knowledge of their biology is crucial for building and home inspections; something the ASSASSIN has finely tuned over the last 3 decades working in the pest control industry.
Termites forage for food over a large area (approximately 100 metres) in search of timber and operate and live in a central nest or colony. The worker termites partially digest the timber before returning to the nest to feed the colony. This can cause considerable damage to our homes and bank accounts, as many Sydneysiders will attest, and can happen in a matter of months. Termites are social insects, and there are multiple castes within the colony.

Yes, it's true. 1 in 3 homes on average will suffer some kind of termite infestation so it is definitely possible that your home could be sustaining damage without your knowledge. If the signs of termite activity are very obvious, there's a good chance that they've been active for a while & have gotten their colony well established.

At ASSASSIN PEST CONTROL the termite protection that we favour is Termidor. These facts are why we recommend it to protect your home in Sydney, Australia.
The media reports on the importance of termite inspections and termite control methods constantly. Major media stories have been run in Sydney regarding inadequate inspections for termites and other timber pests. This is particularly the case when new home buyers require a pre-purchase inspection.
Most spiders are nocturnal. During the day they are seldom seen, unless they are sought or disturbed in their natural environment. When the light fades, spiders become active.
They leave the protection of their burrows or shelters and go out in search of food or, in the case of web spinning spiders, construct their webs to snare prey. As day breaks, most spiders seek the safety of their shelters again.
Birds may roost or nest in buildings, often gaining access through broken tiles and damaged ridge capping. This is usually a seasonal occurrence when birds are about to lay eggs. Pigeons, starlings, sparrows, myna birds are the frequent offenders.
Some birds nest in situations such as guttering and downpiping which then causes water overflow and moisture problems in walls. Their faeces also reduces the normal flow of water in guttering, causng corrosion in some types of metal guttering.
German Cockroaches are the worlds' most successful and prolific cockroaches because of their extremely fast breeding habits and ability to adapt to almost any environment. They will eat anything that humans do and will also eat wallpaper, curtains, leather and any other organic material.
They are always found indoors and tend to stay where food and water are freely available, such as kitchens, pantries and bathrooms, etc.
They cannot fly and carry their egg capsules (Ootheca) until maturity, unlike the other pest species.
The adults are 10-15mm long and are tan to medium brown coloured with 2 parallel dark stripes on the head section (Pronotum).
