Why Conduct Corrective Treatment
Termite infestation is realized only when the home owner sees an infestation within the premises. By this time termites could have caused a significant amount in damages. Conducting Corrective treatments will act as a barrier which prevents Subterranean Termites from ever intruding into your property.
What if I have an infestation
If you have an infestation within your premises, it has to be eradicated prior to conducting corrective treatment as I am sure you do not want these uninvited guests trapped within your home.
Hence, before we commence corrective treatment we will conduct a thorough inspection of your property to make sure that it is 100% Termite-Free. MaxPest Offers [Treatment + Corrective] incentives.
Drilling is accomplished by a heavy-duty â€śRotary-Hammerâ€ť drill type and holes of 15-20 mm diameter in size. The holes are drilled just over 150mm from the vertical wall and holes are spaced 500mm apart. Where it is impossible to trench on the outside of the foundation wall due to a concrete or other solid covering, then those will be drilled also.
Internal foundation walls and any wall extending downwards into the soil will be treated in the same way mentioned above by spaced drilling and injecting 5 litres of the correct concentration level of termiticide into each hole.
After injection, the drilled holes will be filled either with a cement mix or some other similar suitable material to match the general appearance of the original surface.

Approved Chemical (Termiticide)
OptigardÂ® Termite Liquid
Active Ingredient â€“ Thiamethoxam 21.6% w/w suspension concentrate (SC)
DOSAGE PER HOLE : 4-5 Litres
DILUTION RATEÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â : 1: 400
ENVIRONMENT FRIENDLY & WATER BASED
Thiamethoxam targets the nicotinic acetycholine receptors in the insectâ€™s nervous system, resulting in death of the exposed insect. Neonicotinoids have a significantly different mode of action compared with other classes of insecticides (e.g. pyrethroids, phenylpyrazoles, pyrroles.) commonly used for pest control. Thiamethoxam provides contact and ingestion activity on all stages of insect development. Thiamethoxam is non-repellent and can be transferred from exposed to unexposed insects that exhibit social behaviour, such as termites.
- Non-repellent insecticide
- Low use rates (0.2%)
- Kills termites by contact and ingestion
- Non-volatile and non-staining
- Excellent efficacy against termites and wood-destroying insects
- Flexible use to control termites.
Approximately: 1-3 Days with manpower of Two to Three (2-3) MaxPest Technicians.
