Prevention & Treatment
Termite Prevention System (In Ground)
In-Ground stations (with attactant wood) will be installed at the perimeter on the building (ground compound) around 3 meters apart.
- Termite Prevention System (Drilling)
Insecticide is injected within multiple drilled holes around the perimeter of premises to kill termites.
- Termite Baiting System Installation
Bait station installation around the perimeter of premises with frequent checks from the exterminators. This installation helps both kill and prevent termite infestation.
Types of Termites
There are 2,750 termite species known worldwide. A reproductive queen and king, workers, and soldiers form termite colonies. They live for 2-5 years, and reproductives might live for 60-70 years. Termites live underground or in wood in a sealed, humid nest. It’s also possible they create a mound out of underground nests. Termites mostly eat wood. The following termite in Malaysia poses the greatest threat to Malaysian homeowners.
Up to 2 million members of this species can reside in underground colonies or in wet, quiet locations above ground. They create recognisable “mud tubes”to access food sources and shield themselves from the open air.
Dry Wood Termites
Unlike subterranean and Formosan termites, drywood termites infest dry wood and do not require contact with the soil. This termite species can infest dead wood that may be near homes and frequently builds nests in roof materials and wooden wall supports. They can also be discovered in wood next to a water supply, such as a leaking pipe or a water heater, even though they don’t need as much moisture to survive as other species.
Damp Wood Termites
Dampwood termites infest wood that has a lot of moisture. Compared to other termite species, dampwood termites are often greater in size. Due to the low moisture content of the wood in structures, they typically do not infest them. However, precautions must be made to prevent luring dampwood termites to a structure.
The conehead termite travels above ground, unlike the majority of termites. Instead, they spread swiftly because they forage like ants on the earth. Conehead termites are a very aggressive type of termite that is well recognised for quickly causing extensive property damage.
