Knowing if you have termites on your property is crucial to preventing potential damage. Look out for these signs:

  • Mud tubes — Termites build mud tubes along walls and foundations. Their presence indicates an active infestation.
  • Hollowed wood — Tap or knock on wood surfaces. Hollow or papery-sounding wood may hide termite damage.
  • Discarded wings — Swarming termites shed their wings. Finding discarded wings around windowsills or light fixtures is a telltale sign.
  • Frass — Termite droppings, resembling tiny wood pellets, may accumulate near infested wood.
  • Tight-fitting windows and doors — Difficulty opening doors and windows can result from termite damage.
  • Sagging floors and ceilings — Termite damage weakens structures, causing sagging floors or ceilings.

E1 Pest Solutions' termite baiting and monitoring system provides a proactive solution for termite infestations. This system allows early detection and intervention, preventing extensive damage to your property.

Termites are small insects that live in colonies underground. Although they are often mistaken for white ants, termites actually belong to a different family of insects. Most people think of termites as pests that eat wood, but they will actually eat just about any type of organic material that contains cellulose material. Termites eat drywall, insulation, paper, books, plastics, and even swimming pool liners.

In fact, the only thing that termites won't eat is metal or glass. As a result, homes with a lot of these materials are at a higher risk for termite damage...

If you have termites on your property, it is important to have a termite inspection done and get rid of any termite infestations as soon as possible. One way to do this is to have a termite baiting system work.

A Termite baiting system works involve setting up bait stations around your property that contain food that attracts termites. The termites will then feed on the active ingredient, and the bait station will monitor the level of termite activity. If there is a high level of activity, the bait station will release a slow-acting...

Termite baiting in Sydney is a theoretically attractive method of killing termites because it relies on the insect's natural foraging habits to spread the poison throughout the colony.

The problem is that, although there are numerous products available, little data exists to back up their efficacy. Termites are very socially complex insects, living in colonies that can number in the millions. Worker termites search for food and bring it back to the colony where it is fed to the other members of the community.

The most common type of termite bait consists of a slow-acting poison that is incorporated into some kind of attractive food source. The theory is that the...

Termite Monitoring System

A termite monitoring system is a device or series of devices that are used to detect and track termites. There are a variety of different types of termite monitoring systems, but they all share the common goal of preventing these pests from causing damage to your home or business.

Some of the most common types of termite monitoring systems and termite baiting in Sydney use products such as Trelona or Sentricon to bait and track termites. These products work by attracting termites with a food source and then allowing you to monitor their movements so that you can keep them away from your property. We service them from every month to 3 months.

Termite Monitoring System


The Trelona termite baiting system is designed to kill termites by poisoning them with a slow-acting substance. The system works by placing bait stations around the perimeter of a property, as well as in high-risk areas where termites are likely to build their nests. The bait stations contain a paper or cellulose-based material that is impregnated with the poison.

Termites feed on the toxic bait and then carry it back to their nests, which leads to colony elimination. In addition, the poison prevents termites from being able to digest wood, so they eventually starve to death. The Trelona termite baiting system is highly effective at eradicating termite populations, but each bait system must be regularly monitored to be sure that the plastic bait stations have enough bait to continue to attract termites.

Termite Monitoring System


The Sentricon system is an active termite baiting system that works to eliminate an entire termite colony. This is done by placing Sentricon bait stations around the perimeter of a property and checking regularly.

Once termites are discovered in a station, a trained technician will swap out the bait for a poisonous one. The termites will then take this new bait back to their colony where it will be consumed by the other members. Over time, this will poison the entire colony and kill all of the termites. The Sentricon system is a highly effective way to exterminate termites, however, it must be properly maintained to be successful. Choose E1 Pest Solutions the best pest professionals.

Three Main Types of Termites

Subterranean Termites

Subterranean termites are the most common type of termite in Australia. They live in colonies underground and build mud tunnels up the sides of buildings in order to reach wood.

Three Main Types of Termites

Drywood Termites

Drywood termites live in dry, above-ground wood. They do not need any contact with the ground or soil in order to survive.

Three Main Types of Termites

Dampwood Termites

Dampwood termites live in damp or moist wood. They are often found near sources of water, such as leaky pipes or wet foundation walls. Termites are destructive insects because they eat wood. They can cause serious damage to homes and other structures made of wood.

Active Termites are a serious problem for homeowners and need termite control from a trusted pest control company to eliminate termites ASAP.

More methods to termite control

01 | Core drilling

Where there is concrete, core drilling will be required to place a bait station beneath the concrete areas to reach the soil. All termite monitoring system stations are placed at an optimal distance of 3 - 5 metres away from each other within 1 metre of the perimeter of the premise external wall.

02 | Soil Digging

When there is soil around the perimeter of the house, we dig a hole to fit the monitoring system in. We then place either attractive timbers inside or always active bait. These termite monitoring system stations are placed 3 - 5 metres away from each other within 1 metre of the perimeter of the premise external wall.

Termites can cause a lot of damage to buildings and other structures, so it is important to have a monitoring system in place to prevent them from causing any harm.

03 | Chemical Soil Barrier

A termite chemical soil barrier is a chemical soil treatment that involves applying a long-lasting insecticide to the soil around and under a building to create a chemically treated zone that repels or kills termites. Commonly used Australian pesticides for termite baiting in Sydney include fipronil and bifenthrin.

We drill and inject into concrete, we trench and flood where there is soil. This termite treatment will be performed around the external of your house, on the subfloor around the internal perimeter of your house and around each pier.

04 | Benefits of Chemical Barrier

The main benefit of this treatment is that it provides long-term protection against termites, preventing termites entering and causing extensive damage to your home. You will receive 8 years warranty of termite protection with the condition of checking regularly on an annual basis.

In addition, it can be used in conjunction with other termite control methods, such as termite baiting and physical barriers, to create a comprehensive defence system.

Another benefit is that the chemicals used in the treatment are relatively safe for humans and pets when used according to label directions. However, there are some risks associated with this type of treatment, so it's important to consult with a pest management professional before deciding if it's right for your home.
