Southcape Pest Management is accredited to apply Altriset
Termites target thousands and thousands of homes every year, causing over A$1 billion worth of damage - this damage is not covered by your home insurance. Research shows termites attack around 1 in 4 of all Australian homes at some stage. To understand why termites do so much damage, you need to understand how they work. Termites live to eat - recycling dead wood in our environment. From their huge underground nests they can tunel for up to 50m to find their food. The problem is they dont care whether their food is in the middle of the bush or the middle of you suburb - so your house is definitely on the menu. In the south-west region including Augusta, Margaret River, Dunsborough and Busselton, we love to build on semi rural blocks and so the termites are in the backyard.
So what are your options for protecting your home?
Altriset is a revolutionary product for termite protection. It took scientisits over ten years to create a termiticide that not only delivers highly effective termite control, but with its very low toxicity it has revolutionary safety and environmental profile. Altriset is deadly to termites by targeting their muscles. When termites come into contact with Altriset their jaw muscles become paralysed so they cease feeding and stop damageing your house within hours. But they dont die straight away. The termites stay alive long enough to to walk back to their nest and to transfer Altriset onto their mates. That means you dont just kill the termites lurking around your home, you can control the termites back at the nest. Altriset eliminates termites from structures within 3 months and when applied to the soil around your home, continues to provide protection for years.
When deciding what product to use to treat termites, you may well wonder what effects the product may have on your family, your pets and the environment. Altriset is the first and only liquid termiticide that has been classed as unscheduled poison by the Australian regulatory authorities. As a result our technicians at Southcape Pest Management dont have to wear protective equipment (such as goggles, gloves or overalls) when mixing and applying Altriset. This great safety profile not only applies to people, Altriset has very low toxicity to pets, birds, fish, earthworms and even honey bees, which means you can protect your home with minimal impact on the environment.
