Termite Prevention and Management

  • Swarms of winged insects around your home
  • Discarded wings near doors and windows
  • Mud tubes on outside walls or crawl spaces
  • Dirt channels emerging out from walls and wood
  • Crumbling baseboards
  • Warped and hollow sounding wooden flooring

In Hong Kong, subterranean termite damage approaches millions of dollars a year. Protect your premises by watching for these signs of termites:

Termite is NOT a kind of Ants?!
Termites and ants are different in terms of shape, size
and destructive power. Termites have the ability to
cause devastating destruction to your premises.
They go and intrude anywhere - brick walls,
woods, plant and etc.

Termites swarm in spring and their flights
normally begin after a rainfall. They are
often mistaken for flying ants. If these
swarmers find their way into your premises it is
important that you take action immediately. If left
unchecked, they will settle and begin building a new
colony. By the time you see the termites again they will
have already caused significant damage.

Treatments for Termite Infestations
There are several types of treatments for termite infestations:
1. Treatment of soil and building foundations by laying a chemical barrier in the ground and/or placement of special baiting stations around the perimeter.
2. Treatment of building surfaces during construction / renovation.

Prevention and Checking Services
Maintenance/ Prevention treatments are carried out 3-4 times a year depending on the location of the property and other environmental factors.

What we use for termite treatment

For the first time ever, you termites can be wipe where they live.
The weapon: the innovative Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination System from Dow AgroSciences. The Sentricon System completely eliminates subterranean termite colonies, while being non-disruptive to property owners and tenants. It also provides proven, long-term protection against termite damage.

System Overview
HOW THE SENTRICON SYSTEM WORKS
The Sentricon System can be installed in the ground around a structure and/or inside and takes advantage of natural termite behavior. Worker termites constantly forage far and wide, looking for wood to feed their colony. When they find food, like the monitoring device in a Sentricon station, they leave special scent trails to summon their nest mates to the food source. The bait contains the active ingredient hexaflumuron, which stops the termites' molting process. Hexaflumuron is spread throughout the colony as the termites feed on it and send their nest mates to feed on the bait.

Putting the Sentricon System to work is a complicated process. It must be monitored regularly. It demands an advanced understanding of termite biology and behavior. That's why the Sentricon System is available only from a professional pest management firm with technicians trained by Dow AgroSciences and equipped with sophisticated data reporting tools to track termite activity.

Technicians receive extensive training on termite biology and behavior. They're taught how termites forage, how termites share information with other colony members, what to look for at a feeding site, how to identify termite species and how to handle termites. Also, trained technicians know where to place the stations, when to monitor them and how to install Recruit IV termite bait. These components are critical in the successful elimination of termite colonies.
