Termidor is applied as a continuous chemical soil zone around your home. Termidor is a non repellent to termites, This means that they cannot detect the product and will not avoid the treated area. As a result termites continue to forage through the soil until they encounter termidor and pick up a lethal dose.

Termites in Cairns homes, how to know the difference between Termites & ants
In cairns, we have several spices of ants & termites. Ants and termites can be easily mistaken for each other especially when their tracks & leads may look the same at first glance. Both enter your home through small cavities in your walls and floors, however on closer inspection there are some obvious differences if you know what to look for. Termite tracks or mud leads are quite firm to the touch and may require a little force to break open for an inspection, as for ant tracks and leads they are very fragile and will fall apart at the slightest touch, This is only an indicator to what the tracks may belong too, collecting a sample of the insect is the only correct way to have them identified.
One of the most obvious differences between ants and termites is their eyes, (termites do not have eyes they are blind) but ants do! Just like ants. When a termite colony has reached a certain size and maturity, the termite queen will start to produce winged female & male termites called Alates in readiness to leave the nest to search for new area's & nesting sites. Once winged termites emerge from the nest and take flight, across Cairns they can be witnessed swarming in their thousands. In Cairns from the beginning of summer through to about March is termite swarming season. These winged termites will normally take flight when the weather conditions are warm and very humid, usually after a good rain-fall.
When this event takes place, it's not a time to be overly concerned about flying termites outside your property. They are not going to land on your porch and start eating your house away. Though it is a good idea to check for area's around your house that may be conducive for termite activity, such as leaking taps, timber in contact with soil, any old wood plies or materials stored against your house and pull back any built up garden beds in contact with your walls that may be concealing termite entry points. Cairns is deemed high risk for termite activity, so at the very least having annual termite inspections carried out on your property is essential.
When this termite swarming event happens, these flying termites are looking for a mate & a suitable place to build a nest. In order for this to happen the environmental conditions have to be nearly perfect for this to take place. 99% of the termites will die & those that do survive will need to find an area with a constant supply of water with a food source & ultimately a place to build a nest.
There is only a very short window of opportunity for their survival after the swarming event takes place. Old tree stumps, logs and decaying vegetation is the ideal environment for this to take place. When termites start to swarm this will normally occur at dusk so it's a great time to grab your torch, & try and find where there coming from. If possible collect a sample so you can have them correctly identified by us at Homeguard Pest services - Termite Control Cairns. However if you do notice any winged termites emerging from your house, through a holes or a crack in your walls. This is definitely a cause for concern, and means that you already have a major well established termite colony in your home & action needs to be taken.
In this situation, it is essential to contact a qualified termite technician to perform a timber pest inspection. They will advise on the extent of the infestation and what steps need to be taken, providing you with the best termite management options moving forward. If you have any concerns about potential termite activity in & around your house or property, Homeguard Pest Services - Termite Control Cairns, we are only a phone call away. Call Joe on 0401365239.
