Pest control provides a wide range of effective pest protection as well as treatment methods for both commercial as well as residential properties in Melbourne.
There are 2 major types of termites which are in a position of posing problems to a structure. These are:
- The subterranean –which reside underground and;
- The drywood – which reside on the inside of a wood, eating and at times infesting furniture and walls.
Both of these varieties can be managed effectively with measures of pest control that particularly target the individual types of termites.
Subterranean species are efficiently managed by implementing monitoring and baiting systems. Baits are planted in strategic places in the ground whereby they are discovered by the pests and resultantly carried back to the termites’ colony which soon start to perish. This strategy is monitored over time so as to replenish the bait stocks as well as so as to make sure that this method proves to be effective.

These pesticides are usually of ultra-low hazard to both pets and people but they are effective at eliminating termites from one’s property. Another solution which effectively keeps off pests is putting up of barriers. In this particular case, barriers are erected so as to prevent advancement of insects. They can either be physical barriers which are constructed from materials which are difficult for the pests to chew through such as crushed rock or metal. Alternatively, the barriers can be formed from those pesticides which are deadly upon consumption.
Drywood pest species are treated in the best manner through wood treatment as well as fumigation. These are versatile methods and they can be carried out either through an entire structure or be localised to a section of the area, going by the extent of the infestation.
Pest control can also help in conducting termite inspections. These inspections help to alert an individual of the existence of infestation of pests in an area.

It is because of this reason that an individual is encouraged to go for reputable pest controllers who are in a position of getting the work at hand done in the professional ways.
