Chemical Barriers

A Chemical Termite Treated Zone is a chemical zone around the outside of your home. It not only stops termites from entering your property, its slow-acting formula allows time for one termite to spread the chemical to other termites so the entire colony is eradicated.

While deadly to termites, a chemical termite zone is completely safe for humans, pets and native animals.  Depending on the home and surrounds, chemical termite treated zones are very effective and affordable. At Termite Choices we recommend and use FMC’s chemicals which carry a $1 million dollar warranty.

Physical Termite Barriers – Termite Treatment for Preconstruction and Renovation

The Building Code of Australia requires Physical Barriers or Replenishment Systems for all renovations and new dwellings.

A Physical Termite Barrier is made up of a layer of chemical-treated webbing sealed between two sheets of plastic. Not only does it provide a ‘physical’ block to termites, the chemical treatment repels termites.  The Physical Termite Barrier we recommend is

Homeguard, it not only repels but if the termite stays in contact long enough it will kill them.

Reticulation Systems

A Reticulation System (replenishment systems) is a series of pipes buried under your slab or around the perimeter of your home, an access point allows a technician to pump chemical into the pipe which is then released through the pipes via inceptors into the surrounding soil. The system will generally need to be replenished between 5 – 8 years

depending on the chemical used.  An annual termite inspection is advised to monitor the system and check for any environmental changes.
