Chemical Termite Barrier
A chemical barrier is one of the most common termite barriers used today. It involves creating a protective perimeter in the soil around your property by treating it with special chemicals that keep termites away. The way we create this termite barrier around your home depends primarily on the structure and layout of your property.
The most common method is trenching, which involves digging trenches directly around your home. We’ll then apply termite treatment chemicals in the trenches and then fill it back with treated soil.
We will also drill holes in the concrete around your property and inject them with chemicals. We’ll then seal these holes with plastic plugs or concrete to ensure that your home is left neat and tidy again.
Physical Termite Barrier
A physical barrier is a termite treatment solution that’s often used for new constructions or properties being renovated. It often involves placing chemically treated sheets underneath or around the slabs of your property. These physical barriers are designed to prevent concealed termite entry forcing termites out, to be found during your regular Termite inspection by your fully trained and licence pest management professional.
Physical termite barriers can also be placed around pipe penetrations and other building openings that termites might be able to enter on your property.
Different Homes, Different Solutions
Termite treatments are absolute musts for any home – new or old. What’s not as clear, however, is the best way to do it. Like most other home maintenance activities, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to termite prevention. The right solution is ultimately one that’s tailored to your property, budget, and situation.
The following are some of the things you need to consider when deciding what termite treatment plan and termite barrier to use for your property:
Are you treating an old family home, or is it a new construction that’s still being finished? Does its structural design allow for chemical or physical barriers? These are just some of the questions that you need to consider when deciding on a solution. Every property is different, and each has its own requirements and potential solutions.
Level of Infestation
Are there existing termite colonies on your property? Or do you simply want to keep termites well away? Existing termite colonies will require treatment before we implement a termite treatment plan or treatment barrier.
Type of Chemical
There are different types of chemicals in the market – some are designed to kill termite colonies, while others simply discourage them from coming near in the first place. For the best results, you should select a chemical that’s designed to achieve the results you want.
In many cases, how much you’re willing to spend can influence what type of termite treatment or termite barrier you can get. Keep in mind that your budget should also consider more than just the service fee; it should also consider how big your property is and what type of termite treatments you prefer.
Although there are many things to consider, rest assured that we’ll always discuss all these factors with you beforehand. This ensures that you get the solution that’s right for you and your property.
Before applying any termite treatment to your home, it’s important that you know what you’re dealing with first. A thorough professional inspection will give you an accurate assessment of what kind of termites you’re up against. It will also help uncover any problem areas or underlying issues that may not be as obvious from the outside.
