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."

HOW EXTERRA WORKS

House under attack from termites.

The first step in the Exterra Management program is a thorough inspection of your home by a fully accredited and licensed pest manager. Your Authorised Exterra Pest Manager will determine the nature of the threat to your property and recommend cultural changes you should make as well as determining optimal placement of Exterra Stations.

Exterra Stations are placed around your property.

Stations are checked regularly. If termites are in your home, Above-ground Stations are installed. Above-ground Stations allow your termite problem to be dealt with immediately, right at the point of termite attack. The unique Focus Termite Attractant is added to your Stations at this time. This ensures the termites are attracted into the Station and do not pass between them and enter your home. This is unique to Exterra. This can mean a significant decrease in the time to colony elimination. A hand-held computer and barcode scanner are used to ensure the quality of your program.

Termites are intercepted by Exterra Stations.

Termites are easily detected in the Exterra Stations. The unique (patented) design of the Exterra Station allows for termites to be seen without disturbing them. This is very important. And the termites are not disturbed during bait application either.

The Exterra Station is baited with Requiem

Requiem is added without disturbing the termites. This is vital to achieve quick and consistent results. Requiem is highly palatable to termites and they readily consume it in preference to timber. In fact Australian studies show that once termites start feeding on Requiem they stop feeding on timbers in your home! Requiem is also very low toxicity to you, your pets and the environment.

The Termite Colony is eliminated by the Requiem.

The termites feed on the Requiem and take it back to the colony where it is fed slowly throughout the entire colony. Since the termites die gradually, they do not associate the colony's demise with the Requiem. This ensures that the entire colony is eliminated.

The colony is eliminated....

Fresh interceptors are placed in the Stations and 'Peace of Mind' monitoring continues. Your property always remains susceptible to future attack from new termite colonies or other established colonies in your area. To relieve this constant threat the Exterra System works on an ongoing process of monitoring, baiting and eliminating. This makes its use ideal as an ongoing early warning system. And with Focus Termite Attractant there to ensure the termites find the Stations before your home - you have total security.

In fact, we are so confident of Exterra's extraordinarily high level of effectiveness that we back it with a $100,000 Timber Replacement Warranty. If termites damage your home and it is covered by our warranty, we will repair up to $100,000 of qualified new termite damage.

Like any warranty, limitations apply. Refer to the actual warranty for a full explanation of the coverage and its limitations. Just another reason why Exterra is the only choice to protect your biggest investment.
