Termite Control
The Termite Problem
In Southern Africa, designated as a region with "heavy" termite activity, termite control is essential for any homeowner concerned with protecting a valuable investment. Termites are responsible for an estimated $5 billion in damage each year. Termite damage is more common than storm damage, yet it is rarely covered by insurance. The homeowner's solution to this potentially devastating issue is professional termite control.
Termites dwell in underground colonies, tunneling undetected through the soil into a structure. Very often structural damage may occur unseen or unnoticed, hidden behind solid walls. Signs of an active termite infestation vary but may include:
a sudden swarm of winged insects
mudtubes constructed by the termites to link their passage from the soil into the structure
damage from termites feeding on wood within your home
or live termites
These infestation indicators can be identified by a Pest Portal inspector trained to locate and identify termite activity.
The Termite Solution
Pest Portal has extensive experience in residential and commercial termite control. We offer two industry proven solutions to protect your investment:
A liquid barrier treatment is a fast-acting, designed to eliminate termite colonies often within days of application. A trained Pest Portal Pest Control technician will treat the soil and foundation of your home with the industry's most effective and long-lasting treatment process. This perimeter barrier immediately protects the structure from termites with a wide, continuous chemical zone. Termites outside of the barrier are prevented from entering. Termites inside the barrier are eliminated. Following the treatment, we recommend annual inspections to monitor for further termite activity, maximizing the effectiveness of this termite control method. We also recommend that you sign up for our retreatment guarantee, which provides the best protection for your money.

Termite control bait systems are an attractive solution for many customers for a variety of reasons. Some homeowners are concerned with directly injecting termiticide into the soil and foundations of their home for environmental reasons. Others want a monitored system that provides termite control when needed and chemical-free monitoring when it isn't.
With bait systems, Pest Portal provides simple but effective termite control. Stations are installed in the ground around the perimeter of the structure and routinely monitored for termite activity. There is no bait or other product on your property when the system is in preventative mode or monitoring mode. If and when termites invade your property, and are discovered during monitoring, the true bait is deployed.
The Sentricon bait matrix is designed to be the food source preferred by termites. Once they infest a bait station, we introduce the active ingredient to the bait station system in an amount comparable to a small pack of artificial sweetener. This small, targeted dose is sufficient to eliminate the entire termite colony.

We realize termite control is an important investment decision for our customers.
