Termiwatch is basically a DIY termite activity detection and monitoring kit that will give you an early warning of any termite activity before it escalates and does damage to your home. The basic premise of Termiwatch is that a planned system of very palatable (for termites!) wooden baits are buried around the perimeter of your home. These baits are placed at strategically separated distance so that foraging subterranean termites will come into contact with them. The baits themselves won’t attract termites to your home from down the street, they will be found only by coming across them during their normal foraging.
Termiwatch termite detection system is based on a globally proven methodology that protects nearly 4 million homes, offices and other structures around the world.
Termiwatch uses a specially cultivated Australian bait timber that is rich in cellulose and is held in place underground by special, robustly designed plastic stations buried just under the surface at a depth where we know termites will be foraging.
Termiwatch provides a quick, simple way to visually inspect whether termites have been active at a particular station and if so, we can then assist in developing a plan to eliminate those termites present either by spot treating or a more permanent barrier solution.
The Termiwatch termite detection system is 100% designed and manufactured in Western Australia. Since 2003 Termiwatch, invented and patented by Mark Moyle from Perth Pest Control, has proved to be a successful ‘security system’ for termites in homes, warehouses and other commercial properties around the country. It is used extensively by residential homeowners (protecting thousands of Australian homeowners) however more and more we are seeing commercial sites set up a professional termite monitoring system using Termiwatch. The early warning signal Termiwatch gives them about termite activity allows them to act, and budget, in a preventative rather than a curative way. Examples of local establishments using Termiwatch are:
Note that as well as planning and installing a commercial Termiwatch system, Perth Pest Control can also offer a regular monitoring service which may save you time and money in having to allocate personnel to this necessary activity.
