The common termite species can be found in Hong Kong and Taiwan is called Formosan subterranean termite (Coptotermes formosanus). The other two common genus within subterranean termite family (Rhinotermitidae) are Reticulitermes and Heterotermes. The group as a whole is so-named because their activities are usually associated to some extent with the soil.
Subterranean termites invade your premises mainly by two methods. The first one will be termite swarm during early spring, a swarmer is a reproductive individual within the colony. Other names for reproductive individuals are the terms queen and king. Swarmers emerge from the ground or soil and mate in flight. They then drop their wings. Males die after mating. When mated females find suitable habitats (with moisture and wood), they are then ready to begin laying eggs and forming a new colony.
The second method is that, subterranean termites access aboveground wood in buildings through protected cracks and cavities. Normally, termites live in colonies underground, from which they build tunnels in search of food, they are able to reach food above the ground level by building mud tubes (mud shelter), as long as they can find tiny cracks or wood, they may start invading your home.
Termites and Ants
Johnson Group Termite Management Systems – equips the most innovative and exclusive technology in termite management. We introduce FLIR® Thermographic Camera for Termite Activity Diagnostics; Termatrac® T3i (Termite Detector); and Borescope Termite Inspection as a standard inspection & treatment tools and requires no additional costs from you.
FLIR® Thermographic Camera
Locating termite activities
Thermographic Termite Inspection – Infrared thermography is the easiest and quickest method to detect heat and moisture in structures or buildings. An infrared camera shows exactly where the problems are and helps focus termite professionals’ attention allowing them to properly diagnose areas with termite activity.
Thermal Camera helps our professionals quickly scan large areas to pinpoint
- water intrusion, find moisture beneath the surfaces
- mud tubes (mud shelters)
- nesting locations
Termatrac® T3i – Termite Detector
Detecting mud-leads, nests and entry points
- Termatrac’s latest patented Termite Detection Radar
- Advanced Remote Thermal Sensor with Laser Guide
- Advanced Moisture Sensor
The 3-in-1 functionality makes the Termatrac® T3i become one of the best available tools for our Professionals.
Termite risk areas are easily identified using the Remote Thermal Sensor with Laser Guide and/or the built in Moisture Sensor. Termatrac’s patented Termite Detection Radar is then used to accurately detect, confirm and track the presence of termites, plus precisely locate nests, mud-leads, and entry points to ensure a cost-efficient and effective treatment.
Monitoring termite activities
SafePRO® Borescope enables our technicians to see into areas that are otherwise inaccessible for visual inspection. The palm-sized video borescope is equipped with an LED light source, TFT display, camera and recorder, it can let you see through what is actually moving underneath the mud shelters and behind finished walls. Typically, a hole (~5mm) is drilled and the optical lens is inserted into the desired viewing areas.
Bayer Premise® SC200 Liquid Termiticide
Premise is a non-repellent termiticide, that provides economical structural protection combined with a colony management effect. Premise is a sustainable solution for termite control. It is water-based and has been designed to provide protection at extremely low doses, utilising an active ingredient with a good safety and environmental profile.
- Treatments that everyone can live with-except termites (the active ingredient Imidacloprid has very low mammalian toxicity to humans and other warm-blooded animals).
- Termites do not detect imidacloprid and will freely tunnel into treated soil/wood. However, they soon stop feeding, become disoriented, sluggish and eventually die about 4-6 weeks after termiticide application.
- Termites exposed to imidacloprid-treated materials can transfer lethal concentrations to unexposed nestmates.
- Success without smell, no odor and airborne residues
Why Premise® SC200
Prevention – Premise® continues to move slowly in the soil for several days after application, ensuring more even distribution. This will create a continuous barrier with no breaks and weak spots.
Premise® is now registered for exterior perimeter termite treatments.
There’s proof to back it up Bayer compiled research from 2003 – 2006 in over 3,000 structures in 22 states: Over 40 PMPs and 23 University Researchers participated in the study All termite species were represented Showed Premise provided greater than 98% control of termites.
