    Termites at USJ17_Information

    I realised one of the tree along the road at USJ 17 leading towards the highways is infested with termites and I wish to inform those in USJ 17 to be extra careful on this.

    Just as information.

    Look at the trees at USJ 17

    Hi,
    There is the road where on your left is a school and right is house. This road leads to a Caltex petrol station. This road also pass thru 2 .4 m high gantry.

    Another indicator, a malay chap always sell nangka on the side of the road, and right after you pass thru him look left, you can see the trees have termites and then you will come across playing field on your left and Caltex on your right.

    Well, I guess termites are everywhere, just be aware.

    Swee-ann, since you have so much time for the forum, why don't you try to look for the solution which I had posted some time back. The thread is there somewhere. Look for sentricon. Post the link back here so others can review what was discussed.

    I used the Sentricon system - it is expensive but I can tell you that it is VERY effective. By the way, it is not limited to one pest control company, a lot of them offer this technique - so I am not advertising for any particular company, the important thing is the method of pest control. Oh, by the way, it does not use chemicals - very environmentally friendly and safe for kids.

    Just hope that the council won't end up using their "ingenious" ways to erradicate those termites.

    Spraying odored chemicals will only cause the termites to shift in contrast to using odorless chemicals/baits (which is also not a 100% effective solution as it depends on many factors, ie. the most obvious being the amt of chemical use vs nest size and the frequency of check on baits installed).

    The most effective prevention is by using the biological way - red ants! Red ants are natural predators of termites. So, please don't overkill ants around your house compound and/or its surroundings.

    Anyway, here is a close-up pix of termites feeding on a tree bark :

    yeah. i heard white ants / termites hate red ants.

    In fact in australia, termite nest (mould) are used as "Poh Chai Yuen" or food poisoning medicine
