The focus is on killing the termite colony.
Killing termites with a can of household spray doesn’t do it.
With an established queen back at the colony is probably laying a thousand or more eggs a day.
Also, understand that the nest or termite colony of the main termites that attack Aussie houses is NOT inside the house but almost always somewhere outside.
The best professionals use a termite bait.
The termite workers take it back to the nest… wherever it is.
They are the only ones who know the way… you don’t need to know where it is.
You buy and use the same formula termite bait (Colony Killer Termite Bait) and you get the same result… a dead colony!
It’s a very simple job.
Termites always follow their instincts; they protect themselves inside timber or inside their tunnels by a mixture of soil and saliva.
This keeps precious humidity in and keeps ants out.
Depending on how badly you damaged the timber when you found them, they will either repair it, or if badly damaged, they will seal off the damaged area back closer to the nest.
If they seal off the damaged timber you will need to find them inside an adjoining section of timber closer to the ground or in an adjoining room.
Getting Started in your quest to kill and get rid of termites
Make a small hole about the diameter of a pencil in such a hollowed-out timber
You need to see termites begin to repair the hole you just made (this confirms for you, that you’re putting the bait in the termites are active and will see the bait).
Simply fix a foil bag of bait (Colony Killer Termite Bait) over the hole you made so they can easily get inside the bag (which also keeps the humidity in and keeps out ants).
That’s when the next instinct kicks in: the termite workers have to feed all the others, sharing the bait they harvested.
They can’t help themselves; it’s their job! So, instead of chewing off solid timber, they opt for the softer, moister bait and take it back to feed the royals and all other nestmates. Your job is to put the bag of termite bait where they can get into it… not hard!
Your job is done! Other than you might have to add a replacement termite bait pouch if the termites clean it out.
Just keep up the food supply until they stop.
And the reason they stop? It’s because the colony they came from is dead, kaput, finished, no more.
