Chemical Termite Barriers provide a liquid barrier using an approved termicide around the perimeter of the building. Once dried, the chemical bonds to the soil to create a barrier against these pests.
There are two types of Chemical White Ant Treatment Barriers available on the market. Repellent and Non-repellent.
Repellent Chemical Barriers are a cost effective barrier to install and have been around for a long time. They are a trusty type of barrier to have for the right property. The most commonly used repellent chemical is Bifenthrin.
If termites come into contact with this barrier, they will either die or be repelled.
The important factor with this type of barrier is to ensure there are none of these pests in your house prior to the termite barrier being installed as it may lock the white ants into the building.
This type of barrier is more versatile. They will not lock termites in your home and will destroy a colony via a transfer effect. This happens because the termites do not know they are walking through a chemical so they take the chemical back to the nest.
Why use a Termite Chemical Barrier
Some properties are more suited to Chemical Termite Control Barriers while some are more suited to a Termite Baiting System. Click here to find out more about White Ant Treatment Baiting Systems.
The factors that determine suitability are access, slope, soil type, and exposure to elements. When we come to inspect your site we will advise you on the best possible pest solution for your property.
What our local exterminators do
There are a few methods used for installation of Chemical Termite Control Barriers in Sunshine Coast and North Brisbane, they consist of:
- Drilling holes through the concrete, injecting the termite treatment barrier chemical into the holes and capping the holes.
- Trenching down beside the house and adding the white ant treatment to the soil, it is then back-filled (sometimes the soil may need to be replaced with a more suitable soil).
- Installing reticulation pipes around the North Brisbane or Sunshine Coast house so the termite control treatment can easily be replenished at future dates.
