With the manufacturing of new chemicals, gone are the days where we use really toxic harmful chemicals that would kill the termites but also affect other living organisms including animals, insects and plants.
It is great to see that a lot of these chemicals are now banned for use in Australia as they were very damaging to the environment and because the handling of these products was not great they contaminated the environment. These days most of our chemicals that we used are based on synthetic pyrethrums, which is an extract that can be found in most plants.
All plants have their own defence mechanisms in the form of chemicals to stop pests from attacking them and destroying them. These pyrethrums are on the inside of plants which means that bees and other pollinators are able to land on the plant and pollinate the flowers without being affected by the plants natural chemicals.
In laboratories, Scientists have created these pyrethrums, so that when a pest controller sprays these chemicals out they can ensure they are applying it at a consistent and effective rate. With these advancements in manufacturing processes it has meant that minimal amount of chemicals are now applied to get a great result for out Sydney Jim’s Termite & Pest Control clients.
