Comprised of specially formulated compounds, these barriers are designed to penetrate wood and soil, delivering a lethal dose of toxins to the target species while eliminating any detected presence. At our Adelaide based pest control company, we rely on Termidor®, a renowned fast-acting termiticide, to effectively secure your property from these destructive pests.

    Which is Better: Physical or Chemical Barriers?

    Determining the best termite barrier for your specific situation relies on careful consideration of the challenges you face. Both physical and chemical barriers offer unique benefits based on various conditions. For example, a lightweight steel mesh membrane can be an effective choice for existing structures, while a chemical termiticide may be more suitable for thorough underground treatment to eradicate infestations. Our experienced technicians can provide tailored advice to help you make an informed decision and rid your property of termites completely.

    Understanding The Cost Of Termite Barriers

    The cost for setting up a termite barrier in Adelaide fluctuates depending on various aspects, such as the size of your property, its condition before or after engaging Tom’s Pest Control Adelaide, and the type of system you select. We provide comprehensive termite barrier treatments at Tom’s Pest Control, specially designed to suit your needs and budget. Please note, there could be additional costs for refills and regular maintenance to sustain the necessary protection level.

    Termite Protection: An Essential Shield for Properties

    When it comes to long-term termite protection, physical termite barriers play a crucial role. These barriers are often installed even before the concrete slab is poured, emphasising their importance. They can either cover the entire slab or be selectively used to safeguard service penetrations, such as plumbing and electrical outlets.

    These options incorporate a durable stainless steel mesh, seamlessly integrated into the foundation of new homes. With Termseal or Termimesh features, properties protected by Tom’s Pest Control Adelaide can enjoy termite security for up to 10 years, and in some cases, even up to 50 years, complying with building standards.

    Protect Your Post Construction Property

    Already have an existing property and in need of termite protection? Worry not, as there are various effective solutions available. Termite bait stations, lasting up to a year, and long-lasting chemical barrier treatments are viable options.

    Many properties are constructed with a termite reticulation system surrounding the perimeter. This ingenious setup enables easy and efficient application of pressurised termiticide through an underground channel, ensuring its dispersion into the adjacent soil. By ingesting the chemical, termites unwittingly bring about their colony’s demise.

    Even without an existing reticulation system, Tom’s Pest Control Adelaide offers a viable solution. Reticulation lines can be trench-installed post-treatment, allowing for future termite barrier application with ease and effectiveness. While minor soil and paver disturbance may occur, the long-term benefits are immeasurable.

    Termite Barriers Frequently Asked Questions

    Our team at Tom’s Pest Control have answered some of our most frequently asked questions about our services and pest control process. For more information or for any further queries, contact us today.

    A termite network is an underground pipe network placed around a home. It is designed to prevent termites from returning. It can also be used to spray termiticides using special machinery and pumps.

    There are many options available for reticulation. Each system has its pros and cons. Consider, for instance, that they have access to the perimeter. Concrete can be poured, and the perimeter can then be refilled.

    A termite chemical barrier is a treated area that has been chemically treated. This can be used for the protection of a building or structure. This treated zone is strategically located below the earth’s surface to stop termites from flowing naturally. You can choose any termite, depending on your budget and needs.

    Termite treatment usually lasts for five years. Therefore, termite bait stations should be used for only one year and not be replaced every two years. However, liquid termite treatment may last up to five.

    Termites can still get in even after five years. If the chemical barrier is not broken, termites can still get into your home. However, termites can be controlled by annual inspections.

    The bait can be dangerous, and termites could eat it while foraging. In addition, the bait will be returned to the colony by termites, which will spread disease. It is possible to quickly destroy a colony, even though it can take termites several months to find the bait stations.

    Termidor Termite Treatment® Frequently Asked Questions

    The key to the suitability of any termiticide in a wet environment is the propensity to leach through a soil profile upon a wetting event. The main measure for ability to leach is the product’s water solubility. Termidor has very low water solubility and therefore will not leach through the soil. Termidor tightly binds to organic matter in soil, which also limits its movement. All of these physical and chemical characteristics contribute to Termidor remaining active in the treated zones close to the foundations of the structure for as long as the soil and foundations have not been compromised or the normal time span for degradation has elapsed.

    This includes soils that have been located in flooded areas. As an example, whilst conducting long-term field trials throughout Australia, a Townsville site suffered a major flood which completely submerged the Termidor treated plots for a lengthy period. It can be seen from the graph below that there was no effect on the amount of Termidor present in the soil.

    This depends on a number of factors. Your Accredited Termidor Applicator is in the best position to determine this via a thorough inspection and written report. As a guide, Termidor should be used to re-establish the treated zones when:

    • Soil erosion next to foundations has removed protective termite treatment zones.
    • Any rectification work has moved or removed treated soil.
    • Flooding has brought new, untreated soil next to the foundation.
    • Foundation elements have shifted/moved or soil subsidence has occurred and untreated soil now requires a Termidor treatment.
    • Treatments with other more water soluble products are suspected to no longer be in place to protect the structure (from previous use of non-Termidor materials).
    • Adjacent patios, driveways, concrete pathways, asphalt pads, etc have moved and exposed soil areas that can now be treated. Especially when repaired and previous soil is moved.
    • Landscaping has been repaired, added, etc and the previously treated zones have been disturbed.
    • Repairs to the structure (especially foundation repairs) leads to the presence of untreated zones.

    After receiving the inspection and written report it can be a little confusing with an overload of information. It is important that you sit down and discuss the report with your Accredited Termidor Applicator to understand the recommendations (why they are important), agree on a plan to carry out the recommendations and review the success after implementing the recommendations. Following this advice is very important, as it will affect the quality of the treatment and may also affect any warranty given by the pest manager.

    The termite threat in areas that have suffered excessive rain events may actually increase. Termites increase their population based on a number of factors including access to moisture and food sources. Obviously after heavy sustained rainfall, the soil will hold moisture for a long period of time which the termites will enjoy. Added to this is the increase in building timber and tree debris left behind after the water recedes.

    Quite often this is buried in land fill or stacked in a pile which adds a new food source which can sustain a larger termite population. As a consequence, termite pressure will, in time, be more severe. Therefore it is imperative that an Accredited Termidor Applicator performs a thorough inspection of the site to assess the risk and provide recommendations to protect your home from future termite infestations. These should be conducted at least every 12 months into the future.

    As stated above, Termidor binds strongly to the soil particles and will not leach through the soil profile. However, this is based on soil that is not saturated at the time of treatment. If the soil is saturated, the Termidor (and any other termiticide) will remain in the water phase with little chance to bind to organic matter in the soil profile. Therefore the soil needs time to dry out enough so that the soil profile is not in a saturated state. This drying time depends on the type of soil, site drainage and the weather conditions after the original wetting event. Your Accredited Termidor Applicator is in the best position to answer this question.

    The crucial advantage Termidor has over many other products is that it doesn’t repel termites. Termites are able to detect the older chemicals in the soil and stay away from them. That means the termites remain active and unaffected, still exploring the area and potentially looking for ways into your home. Termites can’t detect the treated zone so, as they continue to forage through the soil and unknowingly come into contact with Termidor.

    The Genuine Termidor Transfer Effect™

    Because affected termites can’t detect Termidor, they carry it back to the nest on their bodies and pass it on to other termites, hence the devastating Genuine Termidor Transfer Effect. Termidor can control whole termite populations faster than any other treatment, but it is relatively slow-acting in individual termites. This means termites have ample time before dying to spread Termidor to their nest, and the entire colony. The combination of Termidor being undetectable in the soil and its Transfer Effect mean no other termiticide performs as well as Termidor.

    Over 400,000 homeowners for the past 18 years have been satisfied with Termidor protecting their homes, without a single product failure. That is why it comes with an eight-year warranty and is Australia’s number one trusted brand for termite control. Termidor’s Genuine Transfer Effect™ takes advantage of the social behaviors of termites living and feeding in large colonies where they are in constant contact.

    When a single termite comes into contact with a Termidor treated zone, it will unknowingly transfer it back to the colony on its body, infecting termites that have not even been near the Termidor treated zone. This is the ‘Transfer Effect’ and a key reason why no other termiticide performs as well as Termidor.

    Termites can’t detect Termidor due to its innovative, non-repellent technology, so they can pick up a lethal dose while foraging in treated areas. As a result, Termidor works quicker and more effectively than other inferior termite control options.
