Nilpest Services is your local Mid North Coast specialist in the detection and treatment of termites. Termites, also known as white ants, are extremely destructive to timber structures. Figures show that there is an 80% chance your home is within 25m of a termite colony. Regular inspections are essential to reduce your risk of termite infestation.
In our expert opinion, we recommend an annual inspection to ensure your property's safety.
If you do find termites on or near your property, DO NOT DISTURB THEM as this causes them to scatter, making it more difficult to find and control them.
Termites can do a substantial amount of damage in a relatively short time, which is why Nilpest is the natural choice when choosing a termite control technician.
We use the latest radar, microwave and thermal imaging technology combined with many years' experience to find termites.
Our field technicians are all fully qualified and comply with all AEPMA codes of practice. They'll conduct termite inspections to Australian Standard AS 3660.2-2000, and you'll receive a full written report outlining any termite activity.
Termite Treatments & Services
Nilpest offers a range of termite eradication and control solutions and will happily advise you on which treatment is best for your purposes.
- Termite Dusting: Termidor is a reliable termiticide that not only kills the termites that come in contact with it, but it's carried back to the nest to achieve complete elimination of the colony.
- Termite Baiting Systems: installed in a perimeter ring around your property, termite baiting stations use an attractant to entice the termites to eat the bait. The stations are regularly monitored and, once termites are actively feeding, an insect growth regulator (IGR) is added. The IGR is transported back to the nest, totally eliminating it. Nilpest uses only recommended baiting systems, including Exterra, Excel, Sentricon and Nemesis.
- Chemical Barriers: for existing homes, a long-lasting termiticide such as Termidor is applied to the soil under and around the property's perimeter in accordance with AS 3660 and AS 3660.2. For new structures Nilpest recommends the use of Biflex, an Australian-made product, to treat the soil before the slab is laid. Nilpest relies on quality chemical treatments, which are manufactured to strict standards, very effective against termites yet environmentally friendly and safe to humans and pets.
