Termite Treatment and Pest Control

One of the major drawbacks with living in a beautiful tropical climate is that many other creatures like living here too, in fact they thrive in the warm temperatures and lush tropical vegetation.

Many are harmless, others are a bit of a nuisance while some are a real problem and can cost us a lot of money.

The most troublesome are rats, that tend to chew our electrical cables and bring hygiene problems; termites, which can quickly destroy all the woodwork in our homes; and mosquitoes that give us sleepless nights and can bring dengue fever.

Termites

termiteThere are many types of termite that tend to fall into two categories. The first category are subterranean termites which cause most damge live under the ground and make pathways into your house eating out any wood they come across that they like the taste of. Subterranean termites move anywhere through houses and are able to penetrate even small cracks through concrete. The second category are dry wood termites that live inside the wood, these tend to stay more localised.

Buildings are usually treated for termites before construction starts by treating the ground underneath the building. Once built wood is sprayed and the ground injected to provide protection.

If you suspect you may have termites (you may see telltale wood particles on your floor or furniture) it is wise to get a survey done followed by a quotation for treatment.

A one off treatment is usually needed that will last for many years.

Rats

Rats are a very common problem we all live with here in Bali. If you see one you probably have a few or even many. They tend to come out at night particularly in kitchen looking for food. They present us with serious hygiene problems.

They can also cause a lot of damage particularly to electrical cables and may cause electrical short circuits and even fires.

An ongoing program of control is required for rats and uses poisonous baits, rat traps and glue pads. Rats are clever and dealing with them requires a planned aproach.

Mosquitoes

Bali is considered malaria free but there is a lot of dengue fever here which usually means a week in hospital and can be fatal.

Treatment for mosquitoes is carried out by fogging, using a smoke producing machine, to treat a property particularly the cool dark places such as under trees and bushes where mosquitoes tend to hang around.

Mosquitoes require ongoing programs of control particularly during the wet season.
