Did you know that there are 5 main nest types for termites? It’s never a good sign if you spot one. These pests eat wood, which can heavily damage your property. Before you run into trouble, you should be proactive and take preventative measures. But it can be difficult choosing a method, as some can be harmful to occupants. One type of safe pest extermination you should consider is Cavtect, which has been in the pest control industry for over 30 years.
Read on to learn more about Cavtect, how it works, its benefits, and more.
Cavtect is an anti-termite irrigation system that applies termiticide. Termites enter your property through the top of the slab when looking for food, so Cavtect works here.
This eliminates the need for termiticide application in the soil of the property’s perimeter. As a result, you won’t be exposed to chemical residues while outside.
How Does Cavtect Work?
Cavtect can be installed in sheltered locations so the system remains undisturbed. When termites surface to forage for food, they’ll encounter termiticide.
This system works on a long-term basis since pest exterminators can re-inject termiticides through the safety box. This means there will be no ugly holes drilled in the tiles or concrete surrounding your home.
How Is It Installed?
First, the technician will install the pipe into the cavity, along with a medium. They’ll then place jets on the pipe so it can distribute termiticide evenly.
Next, flashing is installed on top of the Cavtect system to protect it. The technician also places a safety box at the injection point so only they can access it.
The Benefits of Cavtect
The main benefits of Cavtect are that it’s affordable, effective, and most importantly, safe. Because it’s rechargeable and works on a long-term basis, you can keep protecting your home from termites without spending a fortune.
This system is also designed so that no chemicals are sprayed around the property. As a result, your groundwater and home water system (PVC pipes) won’t suffer from contamination, and you can continue enjoying your outdoor space without worry.
All chemicals used are fully approved by the APVMA (Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Association). They’re listed for use in the Australian Standards Code 3660-1-2000.
And as you can see, installation is quick. The inconvenience is kept to a minimum, and there are no unsightly holes. Your property will remain aesthetically nice.
Lastly, the pest extermination system comes with a lifetime building warranty.
