What are Termite Barriers?
Termite Barriers are your property’s main defence against termite infestation and structural damage. Termites are extremely destructive and they are very common in Brisbane, in part due to the region’s warm, humid climate. While Brisbane termite barriers cost a significant amount of money, it is an investment that pays for itself in terms of peace of mind and money saved – as addressing a severe infestation and the consequential damage to your home can cost many thousands of dollars.
At Proactive Pest Solutions, we work with Chemical termite barriers Brisbane.
Brisbane Termite Barriers – Chemical Barriers
A chemical barrier is the most effective way to mitigate your termite risk. It involves the placement of termiticide, which is a termite-killing chemical, around the perimeter of your home. This is inserted into the soil above and below the footing of your house. This works because termites live below the ground and travel through soil to gain access to your home. Installing a chemical barrier around the home results in the death of the termites and their colony as they pass through the soil.
Proactive Pest Solutions is committed to using only the most effective and family-safe products on the market. The termite chemical treatments we use are proven to be extremely effective at protecting your home.
We exclusively use Termidor, which is a highly effective barrier treatment. Our many years of experience in our industry have proven to us that this particular product reliably provides greater soil coverage and better protection for your home when properly applied by professional pest control experts. We are Termidor accredited applicators and are very proud to work with this product.
Applying a chemical termite barrier requires digging the soil around the perimeter of the home to gain access to the footing and also drilling and injecting below any concrete paths/patios at your home’s exterior. This can be messy, but rest assured we take great pride in our work. We guarantee to leave your yard, paths, and gardens as clean as we found them.
In most cases, a properly applied chemical termite barrier treatment will last up to 8 years. There are some environments in which additional top-ups may be recommended periodically. We can identify and advise if this is the case for your property.
Termite Monitoring/Bait Stations
One way to manage your risk of termites is via termite bait stations. Termite baits or monitoring stations are placed around your home’s perimeter, usually every 3m apart (this may vary depending on the chosen system). They are securely placed in the ground in locked containers – making them impervious to children or non-insect species. Termite bait stations are not only environmentally safe but also very safe for humans and pets.
Termite baiting and monitoring is an active termite management alternative for properties that are unsuitable for chemical barriers. Professional pest control companies usually use one of two modern termite baiting systems on today’s market. Both of these contain an attractant and a termiticide in a single bait station. They require no sacrificial timber attractants or frequent checking, unlike prior methods, so we can reduce our visits to your property and minimise our costs to you.
