Exterra Termite Control
Rest easy knowing the Exterra Termite Interception and Baiting System is there to protect your home against invasion from termites.
The Exterra Termite Interception and Baiting System is the only system that creates a complete Termite Interception Zone around your home. Using a patented Focus Termite Attractant in each Station, this continuous zone means termites are intercepted before they can reach your house.
Focus is an all-natural, non-toxic, food based additive for Exterra In-ground Stations. Once in contact with the soil it works in tandem with micro-organisms to slowly release a small, precisely determined amount of attractant carbon dioxide (CO2) into the soil.
Termites are attracted to levels of CO2 that mimic those naturally given off by both rotting wood and termite nests, so the CO2 in the soil directs them to potential feeding sites. It is this that allows the Focus in your Exterra Station to do its job, directing the termites to an Exterra Station instead of your home.
Exterra Above-ground Stations speed up the process of colony elimination and are the preferred approach when termites are already in your house. Requiem termite bait is placed in the safe and sealed station when it is installed.
Termites are easily detected in the Exterra Stations, the unique design allowing for termites to be seen without disturbing them. Requiem termite bait can also be added to the Stations without disturbing the termites. This is vital to achieving quick and consistent results.
Requiem is highly palatable to termites and they readily consume it in preference to timber. Numerous independent studies have shown that once termites have started feeding on Requiem, they invariably stop feeding on the timbers in your home. Requiem is also non-toxic to you, your family and your pets.
Worker termites feed on the Requiem and take it back to the colony. In fulfilling their role as food-providers, the workers then spread the Requiem slowly throughout the entire colony. And, since the termites die gradually, their little termite brains never join the dots between their colony’s demise and its continued consumption of the delicious Requiem. This ensures that the entire colony is eliminated.
Once the colony is eliminated, any remaining Requiem can be removed. Fresh timber interceptors are placed in the In-ground Stations and the Above-ground Stations can be taken away.
The Exterra System works on an ongoing process of monitoring, baiting and eliminating, to protect your home against the constant threat from termites.
