A Gold Coast Bug Squad Chemical Termite Barrier is an effective solution for long-term pest protection of your home or business.
The barrier consists of an ‘unbroken zone’ of liquid termiticide, which is applied in the soil around the foundations of the building. The chemical we use is Termidor, which is far superior to others on the market and is safe for use around pets. Rather than simply repelling termites, like some cheaper versions, Termidor ensures any existing termite colonies within your property are destroyed.
The slow-acting chemical is undetectable by termites and, once they’ve passed through the barrier, they will carry it back to the nest to slowly decimate the colony. Any termites the affected insects come in contact with will die within a period of 5 to 21 days.
The chemical is applied in the soil by one of our qualified Gold Coast termite technicians. We will need to drill small holes into any concreted or tiled areas around your property so the product can be inserted. So the barriers don’t impact your home aesthetics, we can colour-match plugs to help hide the holes from view.
Chemical termite barriers are a long-term solution to safeguard your property against unwanted guests as it can last up to 8 years with regular minimal maintenance. We recommend a yearly termite inspection to ensure the chemical zone is still effective.
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 installed under existing features, such as tiles or paving stones, with minimal disruption. The reticulation system can also be fitted during new property builds or renovations.
ARE TERMITE BARRIERS SAFE?
Termite barriers are a long-lasting termite solution that requires little maintenance while offering around-the-clock protection for your property. Another major advantage of this type of Gold Coast termite management is the barriers are completely safe for use around children, pets and other occupants in all types of properties. The team at GC Bug Squad only uses chemical products that have passed rigorous Australian Safety Standards and are environmentally friendly for native flora and fauna.
