termite barriers imageFor over a decade, Pest Ex has been providing high quality termite detection and treatment solutions to customers right across Southern Queensland.  Our pest control services are considered to be among the best in the industry, thanks to our focus on extensive training of our technicians, the effectiveness of our products and our dedicated and friendly customer care.

As part of our range of termite management services, chemical and physical termite barriers can be a safe and effective way to rid your property of termites, as well as prevent further infestations in the future.

what is a termite barrier?

Pest Ex offers a range of termite barriers, each designed to provide long term, hassle free management of termites. As the name suggests, a termite barrier is simply a physical or chemical ‘wall’ that is applied either pre or post construction, and which prevents termites from entering and setting up a nest in a property.  Barriers can be physical, chemical, or consist of a chemical reticulation system around a building.

PHYSICAL termite barriers

Physical termite barriers are generally used during construction of new builds or during a renovation project. Rather like a moisture layer, termite barriers consist of sheets that are laid over a slab before the building is constructed.  Termites are subterranean creatures and generally enter a building through its foundations.  Even the most solid foundations can develop cracks that termites can easily fit into, however with our barrier in place, they’ll be prevented from entering further into the property.

Termite barriers are a suitable option for anyone looking to renovate an existing property or building a new one.

A chemical termite barrier can be a fantastic option for anyone looking to protect their home or business over the long term.

The barrier consists of an ‘unbroken zone’ of liquid termiticide applied in the soil around the foundations of the building.  The chemical we use is called Termidor which is far superior to others on the market.  Rather than just repelling termites like some cheaper versions, it ensures any existing termite colonies within the property are destroyed.  The slow acting chemical is undetectable by the termites, and once they’ve passed through the barrier, they will then carry it back with them to any nests in the property.  Any termites they come into contact with will die within a period of 5 to 21 days.

The chemical is applied in the soil by one of our qualified technicians, and any concreted or tiled areas will have small holes drilled so the product can be inserted (usually these are completely hidden with plugs in matching colours).

Chemical termite barriers are a long term solution and can last up to 8 years with minimal maintenance.  We recommend a yearly termite inspection to ensure the chemical zone is still in effect and working to kill off termites.

termite reticulation barrier system

A termite reticulation system is similar to a chemical barrier, however the termiticide is released into the ground via a flexible pipe or hose with perforated holes.  The hose sits in the ground alongside the foundations of the building, and it can be run under existing features such as tiles or paving stones with minimal disruption.  The reticulation system can also be installed when a new property is being built or during a renovation.

Are termite barriers safe?

Termite barriers provide a long lasting solution for termites that require little maintenance, and work around the clock to protect your property.  The other major advantage to this type of termite management is that the barriers are completely safe for use in all types of properties, and around children, pets and other occupants of the building.

The chemical products we use have passed rigorous Australian safety standards and are environmentally friendly for local flora and fauna.

how much do termite barriers cost?

Termite barriers can range from around $2,500 up to $3,500, depending on the type of barrier and the size of the project.  This one-off cost should be seen as an investment in your property’s future security, and when calculated out on a yearly basis over the expected lifespan of the barriers (generally around 8 to 10 years), it can often work out to be cheaper than other termite management solutions.

This company actually investigates the problem instead of just spraying your place and leaving. Very HIGH knowledge and experience in what they...read more do. They took the time to investigate the cause, the source of the problem and elimnated it completely which included going through every cupboard, cracks hiding spots the lot. We had a cochroach problem in our apartment for 3 months and we had 4 different companies come out and NONE of them investigated they only sprayed. After we called PestEx, Mr. Phillips was very knowledgeable and experienced eliminating our problem entirely. We also use PestEx in our shop and both Mr Phillips and Marty are EXCELLENT in resolving and maintaining pest problems. HIGHLY RECOMMEND PEST EX. BEST I'VE SEEN IN QUEENSLAND.
