The first thing to do is put down that can of mortein! We need them alive. The urge to start poking around and breaking open termite infested timbers is overpowering, but must be resisted to allow for a successful dusting of the termites, which is the first stage of treatment. The dust used is either “Intruige Dust” or “Arsenic Trioxide”.
The dusting treatment is then left for 10 – 21 days when it is checked for further activity, if no further activity is found then a chemical barrier treatment can be applied to the structure.
Only when all activity has ceased should a chemical barrier be applied around the property.
