Termite Solutions for

Whether you’re building a new home or business, or performing renovations, installing effective termite protection is essential. Termites feed on wood and cellulose products, and the Subterranean species can tunnel up to 100m through structures, causing extremely costly damage. You also need to ensure that your space meets all state and federal regulations. Flick are termite professionals, with pre-construction treatments that are backed by a 50-year warranty, subject to annual inspections and conditions.

Termite Barriers

Termites are destructive pests that can cause costly amounts of damage to Australian homes. Australian homes are particularly prone to termite infestations due to the warm and humid climate, providing ideal conditions for termites to thrive.

To address this issue, termite barriers are an effective solution for preventing and handling termite infestations. Termite barriers are physical or chemical barriers installed around the perimeter of a building to block termite entry. They can either repel or kill termites before they can reach the structure of the building. These barriers are designed to last for a long time, providing ongoing protection and peace of mind for homeowners.

Benefits of Termite Barriers

Termite barriers offer a variety of benefits in termite prevention. These physical barriers are highly effective in preventing concealed termite entry into buildings, making them an essential component of any termite prevention plan. In addition to their effectiveness, termite barriers are also cost-effective, providing long-lasting protection against termites without the need for frequent maintenance or replacement. They are relatively simple to set up, making them an attractive option for homeowners and builders looking for an easy and efficient way to protect their properties.

Another key advantage of termite barriers is their ability to be installed at any time, including during construction projects. This makes it possible to incorporate termite barriers into the building process, ensuring that the property is protected from termites from the very beginning. By installing termite barriers during construction, homeowners and builders can ensure that the property is safeguarded against termite infestations, saving both time and money in the long run.

Types of Termite Barriers

Termite barriers are an essential component of any building’s defence against these destructive pests. There are various types of termite barriers available, each with its own unique advantages and considerations.

Chemical Soil Treatments

Chemical soil treatments are an effective method for controlling termites and preventing them from entering homes or buildings. The process involves applying termiticides to the soil around the perimeter of the structure, creating a barrier that termites cannot penetrate. This treatment targets the entire termite colony, reducing their population and ultimately protecting the home environment.

There are various options available for chemical soil treatments, including liquid termiticides and bait systems. Liquid termiticides are directly applied to the soil, while bait systems work by attracting termites and then delivering a lethal dose of pesticide. Both options are effective in preventing termite infestations and protecting the home from damage.

Chemical Reticulation Systems

A chemical reticulation system is a method of delivering termite control chemicals under and around a building to create a protective barrier against termite infestations. The system consists of a network of pipes, which are installed in the soil around the building and are connected to a central refill station. Non-repellent chemicals, such as Termidor, are commonly used in these systems due to their effectiveness and long lifespan. Non-repellent chemicals are undetectable to termites, allowing them to pass through the treated area and transfer the chemicals to others, thereby eradicating the colony.

During a new build or renovation, the reticulation system can be installed by professionals who will lay the pipes in the soil before construction is completed. The system can also be retrofitted to existing buildings with minimal disruption.

Which Termite Barrier is Right for You?

Termite barriers are essential in protecting your property from termite infestations. There are different types available, including physical, chemical, and chemical reticulation systems. Physical barriers involve the use of materials like stainless steel mesh or crushed rock to physically block termites from entering your property. Chemical barriers utilise liquid termiticides that are applied to the soil around the property to deter termites. Chemical reticulation systems involve the installation of pipes underground to distribute the termiticide evenly.

When determining the best termite barrier for your property, it’s important to consider the size and type of your property. Larger properties may require a combination of physical and chemical barriers for comprehensive protection. The type of property, such as whether it’s a residential home or a commercial building, can also influence the choice of termite barrier.

Termite Barrier FAQs

  1. Why use a termite barrier?

    Using a termite barrier is an effective way to protect your property from the damage caused by termites. These barriers work by creating a physical or chemical barrier around the building to prevent termites from accessing it. They can be installed during construction or added to existing properties to prevent termite infestations.

  2. Is a termite barrier expensive?

    The cost of a termite barrier is determined by several factors, including the size of the property and the type of barrier chosen. Larger properties require more materials and labour, resulting in a higher cost. Additionally, the type of barrier selected, such as chemical, physical, or bait systems, can impact the overall cost.

    On average, the cost of a termite barrier for a small property (under 1,500 square feet) ranges from $1,500 to $3,000. For a medium-sized property (1,500-3,000 square feet), the cost typically falls between $3,000 and $5,000, while a large property (over 3,000 square feet) may require an investment of $5,000 to $10,000.

  3. When should I install a termite barrier?

    Termite barriers are typically installed during the construction process, before the completion of the foundation. It is crucial to install a termite barrier during the early stages of construction to prevent termite damage to the structural integrity of the building. Termite barriers serve as a crucial defence against costly termite infestations, and their installation should not be overlooked.

  4. What is Termidor?

    Termidor is a popular brand of insecticide that is commonly used in pest control, particularly for treating termites. Its primary active ingredient is fipronil, a powerful chemical that is highly effective in eliminating a wide range of pests.

    As a non-repellent chemical, Termidor works by being undetectable to pests, allowing them to come into contact with the insecticide without realising it. This means that termites and other insects will carry the chemical back to their colonies, effectively spreading it to other members and ultimately leading to their demise.
