The Exterra Termite Interception and Baiting System offers an elite standard in termite management. It is certainly long term, effective, family-safe and environmentally responsible termite management, utilising Exterra In-ground stations with Focus Termite Attractant.

How Exterra works

The first step in the Exterra Management program is a thorough inspection of your home by an Exterra Authorised and licensed termite manager. Your Exterra Termite Manager will determine the nature of the threat to your property and recommend cultural changes you should make as well as determining optimal placement of the Exterra Termite Monitoring Stations.

Exterra Stations are placed around your property. these Stations are checked regularly. If termites are in your home, Above-ground Stations are installed. Above-ground Stations allow your termite problem to be dealt with immediately, right at the point of termite attack.

The patented Focus Termite Attractant is added to your Stations at this time. This creates the unique Termite Interception Zone around your home and ensures the termites are attracted into the Exterra Stations and do not pass between them and enter your home. This is unique to Exterra. This can mean a significant decrease in the time to colony elimination.

What is Focus Termite Attractant?

Focus termite attractant is a natural, non-toxic, food based additive that is added to the Exterra Station. Once in contact with the soil it works with the soil micro-organisms to slowly release a small, precisely determined amount of carbon dioxide(CO2) into the soil.

Termites are intercepted by Exterra Stations

Termites are easily detected in the Exterra Stations. The unique (patented) design of the Exterra Station allows for termites to be seen without disturbing them. This is very important. And the termites are not disturbed during bait application either.

The Exterra Station is baited with Requiem Termite Bait

Requiem Termite Bait is added without disturbing the termites. This is vital to achieve quick and consistent results. Requiem Termite Bait is highly palatable to termites and they readily consume it in preference to timber. In fact Australian studies show that once termites start feeding on Requiem, they stop feeding on timbers in your home! Requiem Termite Bait is also very low toxicity to you, your pets and the environment.

The Termite Colony is eliminated by the Requiem Termite Bait

The termites feed on the Requiem Termite Bait and take it back to the colony where it is fed slowly throughout the entire termite colony. Since the termites die gradually, they do not associate the colony’s demise with the Requiem Termite Bait. This ensures that the entire colony is eliminated.

The Termite Colony is eliminated…

Fresh interceptors are placed in the Exterra Stations and ‘Peace of Mind’ monitoring continues. Your property always remains susceptible to future attack from new termite colonies or other established termite colonies in your area. To relieve this constant threat the Exterra System works on an ongoing process of monitoring, baiting and eliminating. This makes its use ideal as an ongoing early warning system. And with Focus Termite Attractant there to ensure the termites find the Stations before your home – you have total security.

Frequently Asked Questions

Looking for an answer to a common question? Read through some of our most commonly asked questions.

Cockroaches (both large and small), spiders (all kinds) ants, silverfish and rodents.

All areas are covered in our pest sprays without exclusion. This will include all applicable areas externally, internally, gardens, pathways, letterbox, driveway, windows, eaves, guttering, weep holes, garage, sheds, cubby houses, washing lines, subfloor, roof void, storage areas and fences. We also use cockroach bait in kitchen cupboard hinges. We do not spray fruit trees or herb gardens, fish ponds and fish tanks. Please advise our technician of any area you would like excluded before commencement.

If the forecast is for rain it’s best to reschedule. We need enough time for the external spray to fully dry for it to be effective. If it is forecast to rain not long after the treatment we will call you to reschedule. If it is windy we may also need to reschedule as we cannot control our spray and it may pose a risk to our technician or your neighbours.

Generally, you can be home while we spray. We ask you keep some footwear on for at least two hours and stay inside. Pregnant women and young children must vacate for two hours.

Internally – We spray around all skirting boards, please move loose items at least 30cm from the wall or onto tables or beds. It is not necessary to move large pieces of furniture. The more coverage we can achieve the more effective the spray will be. We don’t use anything airborne internally so there is no need to cover benches or other sensitive areas. Externally – Ensure pet toys and bowls are put away, children toys should be neat and tidy all in the the one area so we can create a ‘safe zone’ that isn’t exposed to any spray. Please remove all washing from clothes lines.

Yes we ensure your pets are safe, our staff have tarpaulins on board for bird and rabbit hutches. We make sure pet bowls are turned upside down before we start spraying and ask for any pet toys to be put away. The pets can be stored in an area like the garage or laundry whilst the rest of the house is treated then released after one hour or alternatively if they can be taken out of the house for 1-2 hours, it will be safe when they return. During the warmer months the external spray dries within 10 minutes so if we start outside the pets can be let into the yard when we start spraying internally.

We ensure that your children are safe, this is achieved with safe practices and the use of the safest products used in the correct areas. No children’s play equipment or toys are sprayed with residual products. We have a non-residual aerosol we can use to treat spiders and other pests in these areas. We also have a company policy not to spray a house with anyone pregnant or young children inside.

No it is not necessary to clean the floors, our internal water based spray is microencapsulated meaning once it is fully dry it is safe, it is recommended you do not mop the floors for 48 hours after our spray.

We also offer termite inspections and treatments, possum control/removal, rodent proofing and bed bugs treatments, speak to our friendly staff for more information.
