Description

Chemblend White Ant Termite Bait is a DIY “Back to the Nest” Termite Treatment.

Chemblend White Ant Termite Bait is an approved insect development inhibitor type insecticide and can be used as part of a termite interception and baiting system or directly into termite workings. It is suitable for all termite species except the Mastotermes darwiniensis species. It has been specifically approved by the Australian Pesticide and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA). The active ingredient in the Termite Bait is taken back to the nest whereby it spreads through the nest over a short period of time, inhibiting the growth of the termite colony and eventually eliminating the nest.

The White Ant Termite Bait is based upon proven insect growth regulator technology.  Chlorfluazuron, inhibits the ability of the individual termites to synthesize chitin. Termites moult, that is they shed their exoskeletons because they cannot reproduce chitin, they are unable to replace this skeleton and thus perish. The termite colony loses whole generations and collapses as a consequence.

What Should You Do If You Discover Termite Activity?

If you discover termite activity, don’t panic, do not disturb the termites, or reach for the spray can, (you will only kill those termites which come into contact with the spray not the colony). 

Baiting Live Termites: 

The Chemblend White Ant Termite Bait can be immediately placed onto or into timbers where termites are found feeding, using above ground stations. The preferred timber interceptors to attract and check for termite activity are from sapwood of softwoods, for example hoop, slash and radiata pines. The termites quickly feed on the Chemblend White Ant Termite Bait, taking it back to the nest. The termites cannot detect that the bait is slowly affecting their ability to grow and develop. The insect growth regulator active ingredient – Chlorfluazuron – also stops the termite colony being able to reproduce. Chemblend White Ant Termite Bait is replenished or refreshed periodically in order to facilitate bait uptake. Active stations are regularly inspected and replenished as required approximately every 3 weeks. The termite colony loses whole generations of replacement members and gradually declines and finally collapses. The effects of the Chemblend White Ant Termite Bait are visible and can be tracked. This means that the termite colony elimination can be reliably determined. The termite’s natural habits, food preferences, energy saving and feeding behaviour are all used against the colony.

Detecting & Aggregating Termites: 

If live termites cannot be located, special inground monitoring stations can be placed either in the soil, through concrete or under pavement at strategically important points around a building. These stations can be inspected on a regular basis with the inspections tailored for intervals of approximately 8 – 12 weeks or so. It is strongly recommended that regular 3 monthly or 6 monthly house inspections are also carried out by your professional pest manager if your house/property is at moderate to high risk. The preferred timber interceptors to attract and check for termite activity are from sapwood of softwoods, for example hoop, slash and radiata pines.

Termite Monitoring: 

When the termite colony has been eliminated, the bait is removed and new timber interceptors are put into place. The monitoring system then continues to provide an opportunity to detect termites foraging in the soil close to structures and in many cases before serious levels of damage occur. The Chemblend White Ant Termite Bait system can take several months to completely eliminate a termite colony. However it can drastically reduce the rate of wood consumption by the colony within 4-6 weeks after the colony begins to consume the termite bait.

Pack Sizes: 200gm, 500gm, 1kg & 2kg.

Directions Of Use

Directions of Use:

  • Chemblend White ant Termite Bait is recommended for use with in-ground and aboveground Termite Baiting stations after Termites have been detected.
  • In-ground baiting stations are designed to intercept foraging termites with a food source attractive to Termites and to concentrate the Termites feeding in the stations.
  • The Termite Bait is only applied to the baiting stations after termites have been detected and to be effective are there in sufficient numbers (approx 1 cupful as a guide).  

Mixing Directions.

  • Measure 100g of the bait powder into a suitable container. (eg empty bucket/ice cream container)
  • Add 300-400 ml of clean water to the powder.
  • Mix the water and powder together to form paste.
  • Additional water can be used if conditions are hot and dry.
  • Pour the paste into the top of the bait station or directly into termite workings.

A 500g container of white ant Termite Bait contains sufficient ingredients for up to 5 treatments of active Bait stations. 

Extreme care must be taken not to disturb the nest/feeding termites to ensure best possible outcome.

If disrupted, the Termites will leave the relocate elsewhere.

Wear disposable latex gloves so that no odours or smells that may deter termite feeding are transferred to the bait matrix.

Rates are a general guide only. Before opening, carefully read Chemblend White Ant Termite Bait Directions for Use, Precautionary and Protection Statements, Storage and Disposal, Safety Directions and First Aid Instructions.

Tips For Use

FAQ’S:

How Does Chemblend White Ant Termite Bait Work?

Chemblend White Ant Termite Bait is an attractive bait for termites. The active ingredient affects the termite’s ability to grow, develop and reproduce. The offending termite colony actually eats itself to destruction.

What Sort of Harm can Termites Cause?

This can vary greatly depending on the species of termites, the size of the colony, it’s age and vigour as well as other factors, such as the availability of food sources. There are many other factors that can play a role in the speed of attack and the extent of the damage.

In many cases where the attack is detected early, the cost of repairs can still be significant, the longer the infestation lasts the greater the cost of rectifying the problem.

Termites can also damage books, clothing and a wide range of cellulose-based items other than structural timbers.

How Often Should My Property Be Inspected?

Australian Standard AS3660.2-2017 advises that properties should be inspected at intervals not exceeding 12 months. The Standard further advises that properties at greater risk should be inspected every 3 to 6 months, depending on the degree of risk. This should be assessed during the initial inspection.

What is the Average Risk Factor of Termite Attack and/or Damage?

The most common measure of risk is that 1 in 3 houses will be attacked and/or damaged by termites during the economic life of the structure; thus the risk increases with the age of the property.

What Do I Do if I Find Termites?

Do Not Panic. Do Not Disturb Them Or Attempt To Treat Them Yourself With Sprays Or Aerosols. Call a Professional Pest Manager; disturbing termites or killing termites that you can see, will only cause the colony to move to another entry point in your property to continue their destruction.

Are all Termite Species Harmful to Houses?

No, there are 348 Australia species. A large number of these feed on grasses, standing trees or decayed timbers. In nature their role is to recycle important nutrients. Only about a dozen species cause significant damage to structures. It is important that you engage a Professional Pest Manager to ascertain whether your property is at risk. 

If I Have Disturbed Active Termites In My Property What Should I Do?

Try not to disturb them further. Try to collect 10-20 specimens, preferably termites with darker heads (these are soldier termites). Place these termites in a mixture of 70% methylated spirits and 30% water to preserve them for identification. 

How Long Does it Take for the Chemblend White Ant Termite Bait to Kill the Termite Colony

In many cases it will take 6-12 weeks, however several months may elapse before total colony elimination is affected. There are numerous factors controlling this, such as the time of year, size of the colony and species of termite involved. However, due to the effect of the Chemblend White Ant Termite Bait, termite feeding will decline to a level that will minimize further damage. 

Where it can be used?

White ant Termite Bait is recommended for use with the in ground  and above ground baiting stations. It may also be placed directly into termite workings or other areas where termite presence is detected e.g. fences, poles, trees, bridges.

What Type Of Timber Should Be Used In The Bait Stations?

The preferred timber to attract and check for termite activity are from sapwood of softwoods, for example hoop, slash and radiata pines.

Termite Information:

Termites are small soft bodied insects, which many people call “white ants”, however, though they look similar, they are not related. There are hundreds of termite species in Australia, some are important recyclers of dead and decaying timber, others feed on grasses, only a few cause economic damage.

These species are subterranean, they constantly forage and evaluate the size and quality of food resources as they seek out cellulose, the primary component of wood.

Termites live and work together in large groups known as colonies. They are divided into various groups known as castes; the Queen, king,  soldiers, workers and alates.

The Queen is the reproductive source of the colony; she ensures replenishment and further growth of the colony.

The workers, which are the predominant caste, are the providers to the colony, they constantly forage for food and moisture, they are responsible for the damage caused to timber and cellulose based materials.

The soldiers defend the colony and are usually the source of identification for professional pest managers, when trying to determine the specific species and assess the risk factor when termites are encountered.

The alates are the winged termites (future kings and queens), which are released at appropriate times to establish new colonies.

The Termite Colony

King & Queen

At least one King and Queen are at the centre of every termite colony. The Queen’s sole purpose is to reproduce. Some live for as long as 30 years. The queen may lay as many as 3,000 eggs per day.

Nymphs

While in the nymph state, termites diverge into different castes: workers, soldiers, reproductives and supplementary reproductives. 

Workers

Workers are blind, wingless termites that maintain the colony, build and repair the nest and earthen shelter tubes, forage for food, and care for the other termites. They are the most numerous caste and the most likely to be found in infested wood.

Soldiers

Soldiers are sterile, wingless and blind. Their sole function is to defend the colony. Some do this with fierce and sabre like mandibles. Others have specially modified syringe type heads and they rely upon chemical warfare, shooting out sticky “ropes”.

Winged Reproductives

These termites will eventually leave the colony as adult “Swarmers”. After swarming, they shed their wings and pair up. Each male-female pair attempts to start a new colony.

Supplementary Reproductives

These termites help increase the number of termites in the colony if the Queen declines in health or dies. They are replacement Queens but they are not as productive as the original Queen.
