Termite Treatment & Termite Control including Termite Baiting System Installation
Termite control methods often include the installation of a termite baiting station.
Chemical termite barrier solutions 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 white ant barrier against these pests.
There are two types of Chemical White Ant Treatment Barriers available on the market. Repellent and Non-repellent. Click here to download a Termidor Termite Baiting System Brochure.
Repellent Termite Treatments
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 white ant barrier, they will either die or be repelled.
The important factor with this type of termite treatment solution 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.
Non-Repellent Termite Management
This type of white ant barrier is more versatile. It will not lock white ants in your home and it 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 Barrier
Some properties are more suited to Chemical Termite Control Barriers while some are more suited to a Termite Baiting Station. 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 our pest control company’s termite exterminator comes out to inspect your property they will advise you on the best possible termite management solution for your property.
What our termite exterminators do
There are a few methods used for installation of chemical termite protection systems across the Sunshine Coast and North Brisbane, they consist of:
- Drilling holes through the concrete, injecting the termite barrier chemical into the holes and capping the holes.
- Trenching down beside the house and adding the white ant treatment to the soil, then back-filling it up (sometimes the soil may need to be replaced with a more suitable soil).
- Installing reticulation pipes around the home so the termite control treatment can easily be replenished within the termite baiting station at future dates.
