Termites infest 1 in 4 homes in the Hurstville Council region
Termites are a major worry with recent industry surveys indicating about one in four homes will suffer a termite infestation in the Hurstville Council region.
To make matters worse your building or home insurance will NOT cover timber damage by termites. It is very expensive to replace structural timbers in roof, walls and flooring.
Termite nest inspection in a wall cavity FUMAPEST Termite Inspector above examines a large above-ground termite subnest built inside a wall cavity of a home. Structural timber damage to the home totalled more than $100,000. Home Insurance does not cover such damage.
Termites build subnests where moisture collects inside a wall cavity from leaking pipes shower recess - faulty guttering down-pipes the termites build subnests inside the building in order to concentrate their energies close to a major food-source extensive damage results.
Your best protection is to arrange for a FUMAPEST Termite Inspection & Report to AS 3660 includes written specifications termite control options baiting of live termites found please note a Termidor or Premise soil barrier treatment is your best long term protection against termite infestations.
Live termites found FUMAPEST uses Termidor dust or Nemesis bait direct onto live termites central colony eradication is certain if enough Termidor dust or Nemesis Termite Bait is transported back to the central colony we closely monitor baited termite activity areas at 2 to 3 weekly intervals to assess level of consumption of the termite baits and to replenish the bait, as and when required.
Nemesis Termite Bait contains an IGR insect growth regulator that prevents the worker termite from regrowing its external skeleton after moulting. The IGR is slow acting. Worker termites ingesting the bait will feed partly digested timber and the bait to other termites in the central colony nest termites are known to cannibalise other dead termites thereby further spreading its lethal effect .... more details
DIY Termite Baiting is it worth the Risk ? Successful termite baiting relies on sufficient bait being consumed by the termites. Even if successful there is NO guarantee another colony nest is NOT attacking the home.
With so much at stake we recommend the DIY Home-Owner should NOT attempt termite control without expert guidance At least first have a Termite Inspection Report to AS.3660 by a professional pest control company.
Reliable 100% termite protection the hi-tech termite control products approved for use against subterranean termites in Australia and USA are Premise and Termidor.
Both have been extensively tested in Australia and USA and if correctly applied as per AS 3660 will provide reliable 100% long term termite protection - in most situations.
Premise and Termidor are used for treatment of soil at the base of a building to prevent termite entry into the building exhibits a delayed transfer effect - can eliminate termite nests in and around the building providing more than 5 years protection if applied correctly as a complete termite barrier to AS3660 ... more details
Why it is important to know about Termites
Highly destructive termites are known to destroy structural timbers in a home within a few month. Your home insurance policy does NOT cover the cost of repairs - which can be substantiial.
We recommend you read the Termites section of this web-site to help you assess the risk and to select which of the termite control options best protect your property.
Alternative termite control methods aim at exploiting certain behavioural characteristics of subterranean termites found in varying types of building construction

WARNING: The NSW Govt Pest Control Licensing is INADEQUATE
Be Careful in selecting a Pest Controller Unfortunately it is far too easy to get a NSW Govt issued pest control licence and start up a Pest Control business in NSW with little knowledge or experience in providing pest control services click here for more details.
The NSW Pest Control Licensing system is subject to National Competency Assessment guidelines. Mediocre testing can be carried by Private Workplace Assessors (not part of TAFE system). The so called competency assessment can be a combination of oral, written and visual tests.
Private Workplace Assessors receive guidelines in National Competency Standards but there is no set standard test or specific knowledge requirements. Once privately assessed as "competent" then NSW EPA Pest Control Licensing will issue a pest control licence to the individual. There is no published list of Private Workplace Assessors.
The System is Inadequate: Some Private Assessors offer a one week course. A person so issued with a pest control licence can set up a Pest Control business (not required to register with EPA) and employ an unlimited number of trainees, using pesticides in people's homes without direct personal supervision.
FUMAPEST Setting the Standard in an industry plagued by fly-by-night operators, FUMAPEST Termite & Pest Control stands out as a well established pest control business with excellent reputation in the market-place.
