Exterra - the effective solution for keeping your property safe from the ravages of termites
Termites in SE Asia are the most destructive timber pests in the world. Hot, humid conditions ensure that our termites are highly active - and very hungry. Urban areas provide many food sources for their insatiable appetites and most of them are in your buildings!
However, it's not only the timbers in your buildings that termites destroy. They also aggressively attack electrical cabling, optical fibres, stored papers, files and books as well as your furniture, fittings and fixtures. The large amount of mud cartoning that they produce is also unsightly and stains walls, ceilings and floors.
Up until now you have probably been thinking there is no real solution. Yes, you can spray large volumes of highly toxic chemicals into the soil prior to the construction of your new buildings. But is this really effective? After all, the termites still enter the buildings and do untold amounts of damage.
This is because termites can exploit the inevitable gaps in the toxic soil barrier to gain entry, and over time, these 'toxic barriers' leach out and breakdown allowing the termites free access to the building.
Moreover, what the Chemical Industry fails to tell you is that the purpose of these toxic chemical soil barriers is only to 'impede concealed termite entry'. So the termites can still bridge these barriers which leads them to attack your property.
Now there is a real solution to your dilemma. A system that requires no toxic chemicals to poison the soil!
The future of termite management
Your home has subterranean termites. Or you realise there is a good chance that it will if it is not properly protected. But the only way to stop termites is an invasive process that requires the application of hundreds of litres of toxic spray under and around your home. Right?
Not anymore. Imagine all this being replaced by the application in a closed and locked station of a termite bait containing a few grams of an active ingredient less toxic than table salt. Welcome to the future of termite management - termite baiting with Exterra.
Until recently, the almost exclusively used method of termite management was the application of a chemical termite barrier. The application of such a barrier to your home would typically involve spraying large volumes of toxic and environmentally persistent chemicals around and under its foundation in close proximity to you and your family. But Exterra radically changes all that. And as important as Exterra's environment friendly features are, they're just a big bonus. Exterra's greatest advantage compared to chemical barriers is its ability to eliminate the actual source of your termite problem - the termite colony itself.
The Exterra Termite Interception and Baiting System is a systematic, multi-step termite management method. Australian field trials have clearly demonstrated the effectiveness of the system in controlling subterranean termites in Australia.
The Exterra System represents a true paradigm shift in termite management. Conventional approaches to termite management can be likened to treating the symptoms of a disease but not the actual disease. Exterra in many ways is akin to treating the actual disease. Exterra even offers the possibility of curing the "disease."
The Exterra Termite Interception and Colony Elimination System
The Exterra System offers an elite standard in termite management for new buildings. It is long term, effective, family-safe and environmentally responsible termite management, utilising Exterra In-ground Stations and Exterra In-concrete Stations with Focus Termite Attractant.
It's all so simple!
Patented Exterra Stations are placed around your property to intercept and eliminate termite colonies. Once intercepted, Exterra's Termite Bait is added to the Exterra Station without disturbing the termites. The hungry termites devour the bait and the colony is eliminated; long before the termites ever get into your building.
Only Exterra can guarantee that the termites will be intercepted due to our patented Station design and the use of Focus Termite Attractant. Focus Termite Attractant is pure science in action. It uses a natural, non-toxic food grade material that reacts with naturally occurring soil microbes to generate minute levels of CO2 that flows through the soil between the Exterra Stations. The CO2 permeates through all the tiny air pockets in the soil, thus creating a complete Termite Interception Zone.
Independent, peer reviewed, scientific research' has proven that termites naturally follow this CO2 trail through the soil to find their food. Exterra with Focus Termite Attractant exploits this behaviour to create the Focus Termite Interception Zone. The Focus Termite Interception Zone is essentially a security zone that completely surrounds your building, securely protecting it against invading termites. And, since only Exterra intercepts all termite species, this ensures that any termites that forage near your building are intercepted by the Exterra Stations, baited and eliminated, keeping your building safe and free of termites at all times. Plus no toxic chemicals are used!
Exterra - the end of the line for termites.
