What is CO2 Termite Detection?
This is an advanced, accurate way to measure termite activity. It works instantly, identifying live termites through readings of CO2 levels within the home. It is a very valuable tool in the termite kit.
Our other devices give readings in the walls, floor and ceilings, but this device automatically tells .
Termite Baiting: A Safe Alternative to Termite Elimination and Protection
The following steps show you how Exterra works:
1. Exterra Starts in the Ground:.
The first step of using Exterra is to install In-ground Stations around your property where termites are likely to be foraging for food. The Stations contain eucalypt timber interceptors that numerous independent studies have shown are the termites preferred food source.
2. Exterra Under the Concrete:
If your property is surrounded by concrete, then the special Exterra In-concrete Station is used. This has a stainless steel cap that seals flush with the pathway.
3. Exterra Inside Your Home Produces Quick Results:
Exterra Above-ground Stations are the preferred approach when termites are already in your home. Requiem Termite Bait is placed in the safe and sealed Station when it is installed. Above-ground Stations speed up the process of colony elimination. After the termite colony is eliminated, the Above-ground Stations are removed.
4. When Termites are Intercepted:
The unique, patented design of the Exterra Station allows termites to be seen without disturbing them.
5. Requiem Termite Bait Goes to Work:
Requiem Termite Bait is added without disturbing the termites. This is vital to achieve quick and consistent results. Requiem is highly palatable to termites and they readily consume it in preference to timber. In fact, local studies show that once termites start feeding on Requiem, they stop feeding on the timbers in your home! Requiem is also non-toxic to you and your pets.
6. Irresistible to Termites, Requiem Leads to Their Quick Demise:
Termites feed on Requiem and take it back to their nests, where it spreads throughout the entire colony. As termites die gradually, they don’t associate their demise with Requiem. This ensures the entire colony is eliminated.
7. The Colony is Eliminated:
The remaining Requiem is removed. Then, we place fresh timber interceptors in the In-Ground and Above-Ground Stations. To protect you from the looming threat of new or established termite colonies, the Exterra system provides ongoing monitoring, baiting and elimination for your peace of mind.
