Why you need pest control for new constructions

Termites cause extensive structural damage to buildings throughout mainland Australia, with one in three buildings suffering a termite attack.

Even urban communities need to be proactive when it comes to termites. That’s why you need to install a termite management system before your next build.

Which areas in a new construction are most prone to termite attack?

Any building area exposed to soil or made from timber is prone to termite attack.

  • Roof and floor framing (structural elements)
  • Door jambs
  • Window frames and reveals
  • Architraves and skirting

Renovations may unwittingly increase your chances of termite attack. They may even encourage other insects into your home. Building any of the following close to the house may cause your termite system to be less effective.

  • Footpaths
  • Garden beds
  • Patios
  • Pergolas
  • Landscaping
  • Laying turf

Pest control treatment for buildings treats more than termites

Pest control treatment for buildings treats more than termites

Homeowners sometimes notice a surprising number of bugs in their new home. This is because while the house was built, it was open to the elements for many months.

Tradies bring their lunches onto the site, dropping the odd crumb. Crumbs attract ants and cockroaches. Insects then attract spiders. As the build progresses, ants establish nests in the soil. Sometimes even mice have been spotted soon after homeowners have moved in.

Install a termite management system before building

Install a termite management system before building

New builds are factoring in termite controls to safeguard for the future. Termite management systems deter termites from attacking your building with physical and/or chemical barriers.

Flickguard is a flexible physical termite system that provides protection from subterranean termites. It is impregnated with deltamethrin and laminated top and bottom with a rugged plastic membrane, which stops the treatment from escaping into the environment.

The Kordon Termite System by Bayer blocks termite access to your home through the soil with a physical and chemical barrier. Homeguard is another all-in-one physical and chemical system. It’s installed in the foundations of new buildings or extensions, providing continuous protection against termites.

Flick can advise you on which treatment plan is best for your specific build, location, and budget. Termites don’t only attack older homes. Build a pest management system into your new home for added peace of mind.
