Detection: Is by observing termite mud in a hole. _______________________________________ Detection: Is by observing termite mud in a window. _____________________________________ Life: of box is 10-20 years and only the bottom edge of the timber is in contact with soil moisture. _______________________________________ Life: is dependent on degree of soil moisture causing rot to the stake in the soil. _____________________________________ Cost: Monitors 22 for $440 Including P&H & manual _______________________________________ Cost: Monitors 6 for $198 P&H extra.

Cost Treatment $220 + and $55 for puffer to apply (Note: recommended for use by professional pest controllers). ______________________________________________________________________________ Summary: Before about 2000, termite control was about using barriers to prevent termites getting into buildings. the problem was (and still is) that barriers can be bridged or crossed or they degrade. The insecticides before the late 80s lasted 40-50 years; the replacement insecticides have warrantees or an expected life of 8-10 years. Every time you see or hear about termite destruction it is because a barrier has failed. Monitors around the outside of buildings are there to intercept termite scouts looking for food and to aggregate termites in sufficient numbers to allow introduction of a treatment which is carried back to the nest by the continual rotation of workers. It is crucial that the monitors be found by scouts. Termites come up out of the soil to find the timber inside buildings and scientific papers and trials have confirmed that monitors on the surface are found sooner than those buried in the ground. The on-ground TermiteTraps can also be put in more places around buildings so the whole perimeter is defended. The two main types of chemical used are either a slow action insecticide that does not kill the worker before it can get back and hopefully contaminate the queen and nymphs causing death. The second type is using an insect growth regulator which interrupts the moulting process; this is also fed to royalty and all the other castes causing the death of the colony. The Green System uses the first, the TermiteTrap system uses the second type which is generally used by the vast majority of the professionals because although it takes longer, it is more reliable. __________________________________________________________ www.TermiteTrap.com.au
