Decke journey is not that old. It all started when we had a major termite issue in our own home. Like everyone else, we called in a pest control operator and saw rampant use of poisons that are sprayed by mostly untrained operators; they may or may not be wearing a company t-shirt but they are effectively doing the same thing. These chemicals are sprayed scrupulously and stay in air, enter the ground water table, leave major poison residue and enter our body system via food.
While living overseas we saw DIY systems being used for almost everything. That got us thinking about pests and how pests work. Months after months of research, here we are; we have developed a range of pest control products that can be easily used by our customers to take care of most common home pests like termites, ants, cockroaches, bed bugs and rats; with lizard and snake baiting stations being with our research team. It was time to take matters in our own hands and show the world how it could be done.
At Decke we use specially bio-engineered a special entomopathogenic fungus that would attach itself to the pest body and eventually grown on to the pest and kill it. It’s non toxic, natural and wont do any harm to humans, pets or the environment.
Decke is the international baiting specialist. Baiting is what we do; infact baiting in all that we do. Baiting is based on the practice of not killing the pest straightaway but attracting the pest with a lure, encouraging the pest to take more and more food to their dwelling or nest and feeding the pest with a slow undetectable active substance that will eventually kill the pest and all their nest members. Understand that most pests live in underground nests. Just as an example A termite nest is governed by the termite queen that produces 40,000 to 50,000 eggs per day. Unless you kill the termite queen, they will keep coming back.
Sprays can only kill what you see on surface and not the nest; so they keep coming back. But not with Decke pest Baiting System- it’s a permanent solution. Decke’s Australian technology feeds the termite nest with a slow active substance that would eventually kill the nest head (example the termite queen) and treat the root case of the problem. Give it a go and see for yourself. Over a million sold, so we must be doing something right.
