Protect Your Home from Termites

Australia is known for its thriving population of various insect species – particularly hardworking termites!

Without proper prevention strategies in place, they can quickly wreak havoc on a property. They can do this by devouring wood and other materials within minutes. Fortunately, professionally installed barriers provide highly effective protection against these destructive pests. As the olds saying goes, it’s better to be safe than sorry. And there’s no better anaology when talking about termite attacks. Damage can be very costly to repair. So it’s just not worth the risk. Before you get a termite barrier installed, it’s a good idea to get a termite inspection to check the condition of your site.

About Termites

Subterranean termites are the most common and destructive species of termite. They live in underground colonies and feed on wood, paper, insulation and other materials that contain cellulose. Subterranean can cause significant damage to homes if left unchecked. Drywood termites live in dry wood and do not require contact with type of soil or water to survive. They feed on wood and other materials containing cellulose such as paper products and insulation. Finally, dampwood termites prefer damp or decaying wood and feed on it as well as other materials containing cellulose such as paper products and insulation. Dampwood termites are typically found in areas where there is high humidity or moisture levels such as near plumbing leaks or air conditioners.

Types of Termite Barriers We Install

Termite barriers come in two main types: physical and chemical. Each has its own unique advantages, so understanding them is crucial to making an informed decision.

Physical Barriers

These are installed during the pre-construction phase. It works by creating a protective shield around your home to prevent them from entering. These barriers are made of materials like metal, mesh, or crushed rock that are impenetrable to these pest.

Advantages of Physical Termite Barriers

It offers long-lasting protection without the need for chemicals. They are an eco-friendly solution that requires minimal maintenance. Moreover, they don’t harm the soil or groundwater, making them an excellent choice for those concerned about the environment.

Chemical Termite Barrier

It uses termiticides to protect your home from termites. There are two primary types of termiticides: repellent and non-repellent.

Repellent termiticides

Repellent termiticides work by creating a barrier that they avoid, effectively preventing them from entering your premise. While they deter pest from entering, they might not completely eliminate the colony, as they could potentially find an untreated gap to exploit.

Non-repellent termiticides

Non-repellent termiticides take a different approach. Instead of repelling termites, they allow them to enter the treated area. As termites pass through the chemical barrier, they unknowingly transfer the chemicals to other colony members, eventually leading to the colony’s demise. It’s a sneaky but highly effective method.

Which is better between physical and chemical barriers?

Both physical and chemical barriers have their own set of advantages and disadvantages. Basically if you are constructing a home, you will install a physical. If you have an existing house, you will use a chemical termite barrier treatment.

Advantages of Chemical Termite Barriers

It provides fast and effective termite treatment control. They are capable of eliminating existing colonies and preventing future infestations from taking hold. In addition, they are highly versatile and can be applied in a wide range of situations, making them a popular choice for many homeowners.
