Types of Termite Barriers for Optimal Home Protection

When it comes to protecting your home from the damage caused by these destructive creatures, there are two reliable types of termite barriers available. Let’s delve into each of these options and examine their features in detail:

  1. Physical Barriers: Slowing Down Termite Attacks

Physical barriers are designed to impede termite attacks by creating hindrances that make it difficult for them to access the building. Some common materials used to construct physical barriers include stainless-steel mesh, plastic film barriers, and polyvinyl sheds. By utilizing these materials, termites are denied direct access to your house. Additionally, ant caps can be employed to guide termites towards easily detectable areas.

Advantages of Physical Termite Barriers:

  • Enhanced visibility: With physical barriers, homeowners can spot termites before they cause significant damage.
  • Early detection: Regular inspections can help identify any termite activity, preventing extensive property damage.
  • Peace of mind: Having a physical barrier in place not only protects your property but also increases buyer confidence in case you decide to sell.
  1. Chemical Termite Barrier: Powerful, Long-Term Protection

Chemical termite barriers are widely recognized as highly effective methods for combating termite infestations. These barriers offer long-term solutions and can affect termites differently based on the specific chemicals employed. The most common chemicals used in termite barriers include Fipronil (Termidor), Imidacloprid (Premise), and Bifenthrin (Bi-Flex). These chemicals can be classified into two broad categories: repellent and non-repellent termiticides. By utilizing these innovative approaches, property owners can effectively safeguard their structures from termite damage.

Advantages of Chemical Termite Barriers:

  • Lasting protection: Chemical barriers offer prolonged defense against termite attacks, offering peace of mind for homeowners.
  • Targeted elimination: Certain chemicals not only repel termites but also effectively eliminate them and their colonies.

By utilizing these exceptional termite barriers, you can effectively protect your home and ensure its long-lasting integrity. Please note that it is strongly recommended to consult with professionals to ensure that all termite barriers meet the applicable Australian Standards 3660.1.

Remember, prevention is key when it comes to termite control. Stay proactive and safeguard your property from these destructive pests.

We Offer A Range Of Effective Termite Control Solutions To Protect Your Property

  • Repellent Termiticides: These termiticides create a secure zone around your building, preventing termites from crossing. While effective, achieving consistent treatment can be challenging due to obstacles like roots, rocks, and varying soil types.
  • Non-repellent Termiticides: Our non-detectable termiticides eliminate both worker termites and their colonies. When termites come into contact with the treated zone, they carry the termiticide back to the colony, eliminating nestmates as well.
  • Termite Reticulation Systems: This innovative treatment method functions like an irrigation system. Interconnected pipes with small holes distribute termiticide throughout the soil. Installing the pipes under foundations and along the perimeter creates a protective barrier against termites. It’s an effective solution for both pre-construction and post-construction.

We prioritize safety when it comes to chemical barriers. Our chemicals are 100% safe for your family and pets. They are registered and approved by the National Registration Authority for Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals (NRA), ensuring they are fauna and flora-friendly.

Which Is Better Physical And Chemical Barriers?

Determining the superior option between physical and chemical barriers requires careful consideration. While having both barriers is ideal if feasible, when making a choice, the chemical barrier takes the lead. Firstly, it is cost-effective to install and maintain, setting it apart from physical barriers. The steep repair costs associated with physical barriers in case of breakdowns cannot be overlooked. Conversely, our experts can easily rectify any issues with an ineffective chemical barrier. Moreover, chemical barriers prove more effective in termite control, especially with undetectable termiticides like Termidor, capable of eliminating entire termite colonies.

Advantages of Chemical Termite Barriers:

  • Instant protection for your property
  • Cost-effective compared to other termite control methods
  • Non-repellent termiticides effectively eliminate gaps in the treated zone, minimizing the risk of termite penetration.
  • The chemicals used in creating chemical barriers remain effective for several years.

Cost of Termite Barriers:

The installation cost of a termite barrier is contingent on various factors, including:

  • Type of Barrier: The material requirements vary depending on the type of barrier chosen. Physical barriers typically have lower construction costs compared to chemical barriers. Furthermore, chemical barriers consist of various types of chemicals, with non-repellent chemicals being pricier than repellent ones. It is crucial to consider these factors when selecting an appropriate barrier for your specific needs.
  • Size of the Compound: The overall cost increases in proportion to the size of the area requiring a barrier.
  • Home Status: If your home is already experiencing a termite infestation, the expense will be higher. Prior to constructing the barrier, addressing the existing termite problem is necessary.


Pre construction barriers are typically more affordable. In contrast, post-treatment can be invasive and may cause substantial damage to the building. In some cases, termite controllers need to drill holes to treat the foundation soil, resulting in costly repairs. By enhancing the content structure and presenting engaging information, we hope to provide a more comprehensive and compelling understanding of termite barriers and their associated costs.

  • Frequency: The frequency of refilling will depend on the type of system and termiticide used. Generally, chemical termite barriers require replenishment every 3-5 years, while physical barriers may require more frequent maintenance.
  • Cost: The cost of refilling your system will depend on the type of termiticide used and the size of your property. It’s essential to factor in these costs when considering the long-term benefits of a termite reticulation system.

What Exactly Is A Termite Barrier?

The walls are quiet. There are many extra wings hidden in corners and on windowsills. A glance at the tiny, white creatures moving along the baseboards will reveal their existence. It will sound familiar to anyone who has dealt with termite infestations.

If homeowners notice the signs, termites may have already established their homes. A home termite infestation can be very costly after you have paid for repairs and damages. You can prevent this by installing a termite barrier.

A termite barrier is the best termite treatment you can get for your home. We offer it. This is because while termite colonies can be destroyed in 90 days, they can last up to eight years.

Termite Barriers: How Do They Work?

Before installing a chemical termite barrier, it is crucial to conduct a thorough termite inspection of the property. This is to ensure there are no active termites on the property. In addition, termites found to be active must be removed before the barrier can be erected.

We treat termites that are alive immediately. Then, we return 21 days later for a follow-up inspection to ensure they have been successfully removed. If there aren’t termites, the barrier can be installed immediately.

After the barrier has been placed, a trench is excavated around the perimeter of the building. It should be 300 mm wide and deep enough to expose the footings.

How Long Will A Termite Barrier/Treatment Last?

Termite treatment usually lasts for five years. Although termite bait stations last for one year and must be maintained yearly, liquid termite treatment may last as long as five years.

It is unlikely that termites will be able to get through even after five years. However, if there are holes in the chemical barrier, termites could enter your home. Annual inspections can control termites.

The bait is dangerous, and termites will eat it while they forage, then carry it back to the colony, where it will infect other termites. The colony can be destroyed over several weeks, as termites may take months to find the bait stations.

Do I Need A Chemical Barrier Or Termite Reticulation System?

A termite reticulation network is a system of underground pipes installed around a house. Its primary purpose is to provide constant termite prevention. It can be periodically sprayed with termiticides using special machinery and pumps.

There are many reticulation options available. Each system has its advantages and disadvantages. They can be restocked without digging through concrete if they have direct access to the property’s perimeter.

A termite chemical barrier is a zone that has been chemically treated. For example, it surrounds a building or structure. This treated zone is strategically placed under the earth’s surface to block the termite’s natural flow. Depending on your budget and requirements, you can choose any one of the termite methods.
