What products do you use?

Termite Products

We use and recommend these products in treatment for termites and preventing them getting into your home.

Termidor

This is our number one “go to” product for both treatments for termites and termite barriers. Termidor’s warranty offers cover for structural damage up to $2 million.

Premise

A budget, non-repellant product, which we use as an alternative to Termidor in chemical soil barriers when overall cost is an issue.

Altriset

An excellent product for the environmentally and safety focused client. Altriset is a non-repellant which performs very well, with a mode of action that only affects a very narrow spectrum of pests, which includes termites.

Biflex

A repellant termiticide marketed by FMC Australasia. It comes with a 10 year, $1,000,000 warranty when applied through the “Eflex” program. Is a very cost effective product, best suited to termite barriers where no gaps can be guaranteed. We prefer to use it only in reticulation systems and where no drilling through concrete is required.

Sentricon

These are our product of choice when it comes to termite baiting and monitoring programs. We use them as a preventative measure only. Please look at our chemical barrier products if you want a warranted solution, as we believe baiting programs are only semi-effective.

Reticulation

A method whereby a pipe is installed in the soil around the client's property and is then filled with their choice of termiticide. The product is then distributed into the surrounding soil along the entire length of the pipe. It is extremely effective and requires less work (and therefore cost) to replenish than standard chemical soil barrier treatments.

Term Seal

A pre and post construction termite proofing system. They offer a wide variety of products including paint on membranes, sealant products, expanding foam, penetration collars and chemical impregnated sheet.

HomeGuard

A pre-construction system by FMC Australasia; including bifenthrin impregnated sheet, and penetration collars. The manufacturers offer a $1,000,000, 25-year warranty on new dwellings through the “Eflex” System.

Pest Products

We use and recommend these products in treatment and prevention of urban pests.

Arilon
A carbamate insecticide used for the eradication of German Cockroaches. Extremely effective, and takes care of synthetic pyrethroid resistant strains.

Biflex
A synthetic pyrethroid formulation containing bifenthrin. Well made and reliable, particularly for large scale applications where cost is a major consideration.

Coopex
These are our product of choice when it comes to termite baiting and monitoring programs. We use them as a preventative measure only. Please look at our chemical barrier products if you want a warranted solution, as we believe baiting programs are only semi-effective.

Ditrac
Professional grade rodenticide blocks; effective against rats and mice.

Goliath
The most effective cockroach gel bait we have tried. Contains fipronil- the same active ingredient as termidor.

Maxforce Quantum
A liquid ant bait which transfers back to the ants main colony and eliminates it. The best one we have tried to date.

Phantom
A non-repellant product containing chlorfenapyr. Very effective against bed bugs, cockroaches, and ants inside the house.

Provoke
An attractant formulation for rodents. We use it on traps or bait stations when a quick kill is essential.

Protecta sidekick
A high quality yet cost effective lockable rodent bait station; primarily for external use.

Protecta RTU
A small lockable rodent bait station. Particularly effective against mice, and can be used behind fridges, couches, washing machines etc.
