3A System for… Eliminating termite COLONIES More effective termite managementEnvironmentally responsible termite management
4ELIMINATES the entire colony. NymphsWorkersSoldiersQueenEggsWinged ReproductivesKingONLY EXTERRAELIMINATES the entire colony.
5Here’s how Exterra PROTECTS properties Exterra starts in the ground…In-ground Stations placed to intercept termitesContain non-toxic timber interceptors
6Or… In-concrete Stations are used if the building is surounded by concrete
7You’ve got termites in the property and you want them gone quickly… Exterra works inside homes very quickly!Above-ground Stations, are placed on points of termite activity, and baited right awayThis guarantees quick colony elimination
8If foraging termites enter the property….. The termites are intercepted in the In-ground StationsThe termites easily detected in the StationsUnique - NO DISTURBANCE Station
9You’ve found termites, now you want them gone… Time to put Requiem Termite Bait to workThis is added without disturbing the termitesIt is preferred to woodSo they stop feeding on the timber interceptorsAnd feed on the Requiem
10Termites can’t resist Requiem The termites readily eat Requiem….. andFeed it to all the colonySo ALL the termites dieAnd the colony is quickly eliminated
11Once the Colony is ELIMINATED Any Above-ground Stations are removedAll Requiem is removedFresh timber interceptors are placed in the In-ground Stations‘Peace of Mind’ monitoring continues…
12Now with FOCUS Termite Attractant Natural, non-toxic, food-based granuleWorks with soil microbes to slowly release CO2.University proven that CO2 attracts termitesFocus draws termites into the Exterra StationsInstead of buildings….
13Creates a TERMITE INTERCEPTION ZONE So termites always find the Exterra Stations first
14Termite Interception Zone The only System that creates a complete Termite Interception Zone around a buildingTermite Interception ZoneSo the building is totally safe.
15SAFE and ENVIRONMENTALLY friendly. Long term, effectiveFamily-safeEnvironmentally responsible termite managementUsing Exterra In-ground Stations withFocus Termite Attractant.PROTECTED
16Requiem Termite Bait This product is considered non-toxic. ACTIVE 1g/kg chlorfluazuron (0.1%)Technical Chlorfluazuron - Oral LD5O rat - 8,500mg/kgRequiem - Oral LD5O rat – 85,000,000mg/kgMaterial Safety Data SheetThis product is considered non-toxic.No abnormalities in reproduction tests.Teratogenicity (tumours) not observed in rats and mice.All mutagenic tests were negative (reverse mutation, aberrant chromosomes and DNA repair).Effects of large doses of chlorfluazuron were studied, but no abnormalities were observed (central nervous system, respiration, blood pressure and electrocardiograms).The above is excerpted from the MSDS which shows the total safety of the product.
17Why is Requiem so Safe? It’s Mode of Action is specific to insects A Chitin Synthesis Inhibitor (CSI)Only insects have an outer skeletonmade of chitinTo grow they shed the outer skeletonRequiem STOPS new outer skeleton formingIt is thin and brittleSo the termite dies
20Requiem kills all life stages Primary EffectsEggs are sterileWorkers are killedEarly instar (young) termites dieSoldiers die(King &) Queen are the last to dieSecondary EffectsMouth parts – stops feedingLining of intestineSlow actingNo bait shynessNo resistance
21Some difficult termite jobs. How would you handle them Some difficult termite jobs. How would you handle them? Firstly a large school. 5 years of termite attack. Three pest controllers have failed. What can you offer. Are barriers practicable or affordable. Others have chased them around with arsenic.Exterra In Action
22Bait eaten….. Add fresh bait Week 3 We placed 3 AG’s. 2 in the art department. 4 weeks later bother were totally consumed. 800g of Requiem gone. We know 100g kills a colony. Less may kill a colony but this is the least consumption we have had in any site where the nest has been sacrificed to confirm elimination.No IG’s used.Bait eaten…..Add fresh bait
23Week 3In the third Station we saw interesting behavioural changes. The termite have created a bivouac at the site.
24Behavioural Changes – Act differently - Move slowly - Look sluggish - Sometimes outside of workingsAnd the soldiers and workers were coming out of the workings and wandering about indicating behavioural changes after just 4 weeks of installation.Week 3
25Normal – mostly workers Week 3Normal – mostly workersInside this Station it was alive with termites.
26Physiological Changes Colour changes1 week later (fifth week), 50% of each Station eaten, and we are seeing discoloured soldiers and workers indicating the effects of the Requiem.Week 4
27Mostly Soldiers – Caste ratio change Week 4 1 week later, sixth week, we are seeing caste ratio changes.Mostly Soldiers –Caste ratio change
28Week 4Feeding has also occurred in the ‘piggy-backed’ station with mostly soldiers now present here too.STALACMITES
29Week 4 Mostly soldiers Due to workers dying first… By the seventh week we are seeing dead workers.
30Week 5 NO WORKER termites COLONY IS DEAD!!! It is also now a question of spot the worker. So by seven weeks the colony is effectively finished.NO WORKER termitesCOLONY IS DEAD!!!
31The Measurable Steps to Success So you know what is going on!! Did they EAT any Requiem? just 50g neededDid they show any COLOUR changes?Did they ACT / BEHAVE differently?Did you see a ratio change?MOSTLY SOLDIERSDid you start seeing FEWER TERMITES?Now there are NO TERMITES?Benefits to the system are that you can easily chart the progress to colony elimination by checking the signs commonly encountered.
32Exterra’s LARGER Stations intercept termites better Exterra Stations are 4x largerScientific research proves this is better for intercepting and baiting termitesSo with larger Stations and Focus to direct them, termites will find a Station firstAnd that guarantees the colony is eliminatedKeeping properties safePROTECTED
