The TERMITEMANSION™ V10 is a product that is designed to wipe out termite colonies completely and remove the threat of termite attack from that colony forever.  In combination with Treatment Pod plus QueenKiller™ Termite Bait plus water, there is no other product as effective.

Back in 2004, Lois Elizabeth Swoboda, in a published study, showed that it was possible to direct subterranean termites foraging behavior. Swoboda, created a “spot” of cooler temperature (5 degrees Celsius) and showed that subterranean termites will leave an area of optimum temperature and travel to a cooler area seeking a potential food source. She also pleaded with the Termite Treatment Industry to investigate and improve monitoring devices. We took her advice and began our journey to invent the perfect termite monitor.

The TERMITEMANSION™ V10 will determine whether you have termites that could attack your home. Once found, using the Treatment Pod, QueenKiller™ plus water is fed to the termites, which transfer the food to the nest killing the queen and thereby destroying the whole colony.

TERMITEMANSION™ V10 DESIGN

  1. Based on published scientific papers, TERMITEMANSION™ attracts termites from installation due to its thermal properties and condition of timber stake (large and firmly held, termites detect even larger than actual).
  2. Condition of timber stake not dependent on attracting termites.
  3. Atmosphere, temperature and moisture controlled for ideal conditions. Termites can be found during inspection without disturbing termites in main body.
  4. No more loss of termites during inspection by breaking the entry mud tubes (Not Twist Lid).
  5. No more abandonment from common ant attack as termites enter sealed unit via eating their way in.
  6. Specifically designed for the subterranean termites that have a preference for dry timber (those that eat our homes), via lid timber.
  7. Lid Timber maintains ideal conditions for longer as away from moisture (up to a year)
  8. Lower maintenance time and cost.
  9. Baiting occurs via sterile, sealed, separate Treatment Pod (use less bait and quicker time till colony destruction).

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS TERMITEMANSION™ V10

  1. The TermiteMansion™ V10 is sent to you completely assembled, ready to install.
  2. TermiteMansion™ V10 are either (a) placed on the soil surface (with timber stake pushed into surface) with plastic bottom level with surface, or (b) buried with the top of lid just below surface (especially in turf when need to mow over top or need to install under paver), or (c) we would recommend installing with lid above surface which keeps lid timber in best condition and makes installing Treatment Pod easier.
  3. We recommend that TermiteMansion™ V10 are placed at intervals between 3 and 5 meters AND are concentrated in areas where termites are most likely to be found foraging (in heavy wooded and damp areas). The average size home is adequately covered with 24 TermiteMansion™ V10.
  4. TermiteMansion™ V10 are inspected at 3 month intervals until termites are detected. Once detected, Treatment Pod plus QueenKiller (with water added) is attached to TermiteMansion™ V10 (see QueenKiller™ V10 User Manual).

INSTALLING TERMITEMANSION™ V10

Items needed: Small hand shovel/trowel, permanent marker, pen and paper for map and inspection log.

STEP 1: PREPARE

  1. TermiteMansion™ V10 should be placed minimum of 100 cm from the structure to avoid potential exposure to pre-existing insecticide treatments and not under eaves or where sheltered from rain. TermiteMansion™ V10 should be placed no closer than 3 meters apart. Number each TermiteMansion™ V10 with permanent marker and create map for later location.
  2. TermiteMansion™ V10 can be installed in any garden area where at least 20 cm of soil exists, with preference for gardens that are heavily wooded, shaded, mulched or moist. In other words anywhere that a large concentration of tree roots exists. Grass areas are not the ideal environment, although if necessary the TermiteMansion™ can be installed a little below ground level to allow grass mowing.
  3. TermiteMansion™ V10 should always be installed in shady, rather than sunny areas if the choice exists. In full sun areas cover with 10cm plus rock or half a brick or similar.

Clay soils: If installing in clay soils a slightly deepened hole will allow for water drainage and then extra depth is ideally filled with coarse gravel or similar.

NB.Preference for placing evenly spaced in straight line around the perimeter of your home has no scientific basis. It is much better to place in Hot Spots. Termites do track under cement slabs but do not spend time foraging for food. There is no scientific reason to core drill slabs or remove sections of pavers unless all more appropriate areas have been covered.

STEP 2: INSTALL either a) or b) or c) (or combination)

  1. a) TermiteMansion™ V10 is placed on the soil surface (with timber stake pushed into surface with your boot) with plastic bottom level with surface or slightly below.                                                                             b)TermiteMansion™ V10 Install when need to mow over the top or need to install under paver. Dig hole 15cm deep by 10cm wide. The TermiteMansion™ V10 is placed in the hole and then pushed into ground firmly until desired depth is achieved. Back fill hole and firm soil well around TermiteMansion™ V10. It is important that TermiteMansion™ V10 is firmly in ground. Inspection of this installation often results in loose soil entering top of TermiteMansion™ V10, a small paint brush and a straw to blow debris can aid in returning lid.                        c)OUR PREFERENCE FOR INSTALL OF TERMITEMANSION™ V10. Dig hole 10cm deep by 10cm wide. The TermiteMansion™ V10 is placed in the hole and then pushed into ground firmly until desired depth is achieved. Back fill hole and firm soil well around TermiteMansion™ V10. It is important that TermiteMansion™ V10 is firmly in ground. Pour approximately 2L of water over whole unit as this will help with the securing of unit.

INSPECTING TERMITEMANSION™ V10

Inspection of TermiteMansion™ V10 occur every 3 months (more frequently is not necessary). The first inspection can be 2 weeks after installation but then revert to 3 monthly inspections as overly disturbing will deter termites from getting established within the TermiteMansion™ V10.

  1. Simply lift lid and observe either termites or termite mud (or nothing). When active termites are found, baiting with Treatment Pod plus QueenKiller™ plus water should commence (see QueenKiller™ User Manual V10).
  2. If no active termites or mudding, the inspection lid is returned.
  3. Every 12 months (or after termite attack and colony elimination) the timber stake and lid timber is replaced with new and TermiteMansion™ V10 moved at least 30cm to a new location.BAITING TERMITEMANSION™ V10 (see QueenKiller™ User Manual V10)
    1. PREPARING TREATMENT POD WITH QUEENKILLER™PLUS WATER (see QK Manual)
    2. INSTALLING TREATMENT POD ON TERMITEMANSION™ (see QK Manual)
    3. ON-GOING BAITING OF TERMITEMANSION™ WITH TREATMENT POD (see QK Manual)

    Store lid of TermiteMansion™ V10 as not required during baiting as Treatment Pod is used in its place.

    Termite Feeding can take up to 12 months and 12 sachets of QueenKiller, with average of 4 months and 8 sachets of QueenKiller (depends on species, age of colony and distance of colony nest from Treatment Pod).

     MAINTENANCE AFTER BAITING TERMITEMANSION™ V10

    Replace both Lid Timber and Base with Timber Stake/ Polystyrene insert at the conclusion of colony elimination and return to new location.
