Fact: Termites can travel underground to get to your home, they can even get through cracks in your concrete slab. Almost every Australian home may be at risk of termites, but do not lose hope. The good news is we have several methods to help protect your building or structure against termites. These include:
Termite monitoring (Exterra Bait Stations) involves the use of unobtrusive termite bait stations, which are placed around the perimeter of your property to detect termite activity. Your Bite Back Pest Control Expert will routinely monitor these stations for termite activity.This method can be used at any stage of the building’s life.
A chemical termite barrier (Termidor) involves applying a liquid chemical to the soil, either under concrete flooring or around the entire perimeter of the building. This method can be used at any stage of the building’s life.
Physical termite barriers( HomeGuard) are used when you are building or adding a new extension to your home or business premises. Physical termite barriers are designed to stop termites entering the structure where they are installed and force termites out in the open where they can be detected. The Physical Termite barrier is a layer of protective material and can be laid before your slab is poured or as a partial barrier to the perimeter of the structure and pipe penetrations to stop subterranean termites from entering your home. This method can only be used at the pre-construction stage.
