Termites

The most common termites in Malaysia are Subterranean Termite. Subterranean termite nest resides under the soil. And craw up to the wooden structural and connecting tubes from the soil to the bootom of the structure. They can make severe damage to your property. We can get rid of those pests by spot teratment with either non-toxic or traditional termiticide. We can provide preventive treatment and alternative service for the structures.

  1. Three main types: Drywood Termites, Dampwood Termites and Subterranean Termites.
  2. Subterranean Termites are the most common and are easily the single most damaging pest in Malaysia.
  3. Termites feed on the cellulose in timber but can embark on exploratory feeding thus damaging electrical wiring, PVC conduits, etc.
  4. They enter a building through cracks less than ½ mm wide and you will normally notice their existence only after extensive damage is done.
  5. A mature nest contains millions of termites with the Queen Termite living up to 20 years underground and laying 20,000 eggs per day.

Hazards Which They Can Cause

1. They can destroy valuable documents, cause electrical short-circuits and consequently fires.
2. Ceilings, roof rafters, window / door frames, timber floors and wall panels are all prone to termite attacks which can prove financially damaging and, in certain situations, pose unnecessary dangers.

Soil TreatmentPre-Construction – Termite Control

  • Ground soil treatments are applied as a preventive measure against subterranean termites.
  • Offer a chemical barrier, which is intended to block all potential routes of termite entry, such as cold joints in the concrete, crevices at plumbing stub outs and open spaces for other utility lines.

Corrective TreatmentPost-Construction - Termite Control

This method to create termiticidal barrier up to 40mm trick around the perimeter ground beams and column of the building. These termiticidal barriers will act as a protective shield against termites intrusion.

Corrective TreatmentTreatment Method (Slab Injection)

In order to inject termiticide to the soil under the building slab, small holes (20mm dia) will be drill through the slab at 40-60mm apart to the nearest point from the vertical wall where seem necessary.

After injection the drilled holes will be filed with cement or other similar suitable material to blend with the existing surface appearance.

ACE Performance will issue a time warranty after completion. During the warranty period an fresh infestation will be treated without additional charges.

RevolutionTermite Baiting Technology (TBT)

  1. TBT is a revolutionary baiting system incorporating new design features that include the latest highly atractive, fastest acting anti-termite bait matrix.
  2. The novel TBT compressed bait matrix has allowed the co-development of low profile Above Ground(AG) bait station that will ensure termite control no longer requires the use of large unsightly bait boxes.
  3. The TBT uses bait cartridges loaded with multi-surface tablets, ensuring easy bait acceptance as every termite has a surface to feed on. The in-buit hygroscopic nature of the bait allows moisture to penetrate the bait further increasing its palatability.
  4. The active within TBT is a CSI when used in the sealed TBT cartridge system ensures an action specific to termites with no effect on non-target organisms or the environment.
  5. The TBT bait cartridge system allows easy, clean application of bait to the stations as and when required. The "oscillating TBT bait cartridge replacement program" ensures minimum disturbance to feeding termites.

Termite Reproduction

If you've ever seen live termite workers or looked at a picture of termites in their nest. You've probably gotten the impression that they look almost larval. They don't have hard exoskeletons like many insects do. Instead, they look soft and milky. Termites look larval because, in a lot of ways, they are larval. The only fully mature termites in an entire colony are the the king and the queen. Even the other reproductives are neotonic - they are sexually mature but have larval qualities.

This perpetual larval state gives termites a lot of flexibility. Basically, all termites start as eggs, and all eggs are capable of developing into any caste. The eggs hatch into larval, and through a series of molts, the larval develop into workers. The workers can undergo a two-stage molt and become soldiers. Older termites can even undergo regressive molts and go back to an earlier stage.
