Termites are a serious problem, both in Perth and across Australia. The Pest Guys offer termite protection to residential and commercial clients across Perth. Termites can cause damage that is often expensive to repair and, if not dealt with properly, will reoccur year after year. More worryingly, termite damage is not covered by your home insurance and infestations can be difficult to detect before it is too late.
Although Termites play a vital role in nature by recycling dead and decaying wood, they can’t tell the difference between dead trees and the structural timber in your home. Worker termites tunnel 50- 100 metres or more from the nest in search of food, and they are attracted to the very things we place around our homes. If they come across your home’s foundations while they are foraging they will follow any cracks or crevices to access the structure and seek out a timber food source.
We are experienced in pest control services in Perth, and the treatment and prevention of termites in offices and homes. Contact us today to advise you on the best method of termite elimination and protection for your home.
Termite Inspections Perth
Regular inspections are the most important part of termite control. While annual timber pest inspections in Perth do not stop a termite infestation they can help with the early detection of termite activity. Once termites are detected, remedial treatment can begin so damage to your property will be minimized or prevented The Pest Guys can provide ongoing programs to minimize the risk.
The Pest Guys annual inspection will allow early detection of termites and highlight potential problem areas/conditions that are conducive to termite infestations in and around your home.

Termite Baiting Systems – Perth
The Pest Guys strongly recommend the use of the Exterra Termite Baiting system in Perth, our sandy soils make it extremely easy to attract termites to stations, and the Exterra product has been tried and tested over many years in the Perth termite treatment market. Furthermore the safety of this non-toxic termite treatment method ensures safety for your family.
The Exterra Termite Interception & Baiting System is designed to intercept foraging Perth termites and to concentrate termite feeding in Exterra Stations. In-ground Stations containing timber interceptors are embedded in the soil around the perimeter of your building to provide protection. These are inspected on a regular basis until termites are intercepted.
At this point The Pest Guys will add Exterra Requiem Termite Bait to the In-ground Station. Requiem is a Chitin Synthesis Inhibitor. A key component of a termite’s exoskeleton is the substance chitin. Without chitin termites cannot complete their natural moulting process. If they do not moult they die. This results in the elimination of the colony whilst avoiding the use of toxic chemicals in the environment.
When the colony has been eliminated, the Requiem Termite bait is removed and fresh timber interceptors are placed in the Stations. These Stations continue to be monitored by The Pest Guys on a regular basis.
Where termites are found to be feeding within your building(s) we incorporate pest management solutions that have worked for clients across Perth. Above-ground Stations containing Requiem Termite Bait are installed on the property. This may require inserting small screws and the opening of small access holes to enable termites to enter the Station. These Stations are removed once the colony has been eliminated, or if no feeding occurs.
International studies have shown that Requiem has a very low level of mammalian toxicity, even at very high levels of exposure, so it does not pose any risk to you, your family, the environment or your pets. If you’re looking for natural pest control, contact Perth’s recommended choice.
