It’s clear why so many people are comfortable using chemical measures to prevent termites in their homes. Most natural methods are best used only for averting reasons, as eradication usually requires much more effective treatments. Sometimes the most eco treatments are prevention methods below.
PERIMETER BARRIER - Totally, your home should have been protected with a perimeter physical barrier while it was getting built at the early stages. But if it was missed for some reason, you can still drill or trench, even though it might be a little labor-intensive. You will need to dig down a 100 mm trench around your home to put the barrier around the home. When the correct materials are installed, the barrier will subterranean termites from tunneling their way into your Melbourne home.
BAITING STATION - The Trelona baiting system is different from the older style of baiting systems as it works 24/7, it contains internal “tablets” that contain cellulose and the active ingredient novaluron. These tablets are safely locked in the stations, Termites love cellulose and consume it unknowingly also consuming novaluron, and chitin synthesis inhibitor that eliminates the complete colony through feeding.
NON-REPELLENT - Lots of chemical soil treatments today are non-repellent, they will termites in two different ways. They kill some termites when they search through the treated soil, and the lasting termites become carriers of the chemical and transfer it back into their tunnels through to the termite queen. The good thing about using non-repellent termite protection is that they keep killing termites and will reduce the volume of termites searching around the perimeter. It will possibly kill a termite nest through the transfer effect of the treatment.
REPELLENT - There will be no transfer effect with repellent chemicals, they simply kill termites on impact into the treated areas. This type of treatment is normally called a termite barrier, as the treated soil acts to block termites coming up through the area. This works because when termites sense the chemical in the soil, they will communicate the hazard to the colony and the underground crypt will be closed down. The termite colony will continue to search in untreated areas around your existing building.
TERMITE PROTECTION - Rapid specialises in pre-construction termites for new home protection as well as treatments for existing homes. Whether you’re building a new home or you want to protect an existing house, we can supply you with a certificate for part a ( 3660.1 ) or part b that complies with Australian Standards. Part A is the most common termite protection, and It’s put around all penetration pipe collars, and electrical conduit before the concrete slab is poured. Part b is the slab has been finished, which can be a chemical perimeter barrier/reticulation system/termite blanket / these all can be used, just depends on what stage of the construction.
TERMITE TREATMENT - Termite treatments ( 3660.2 ) using chemicals is called chemical soil treatment and drill injection. This method involves treating the soil with a chemical called Termidor Fipronil. The treated soil is referred to as a chemical barrier. Termites are controlled when they move through the ground and tunnel into the treated soil. Termite treatments are effective when your home is under invasion from termites.
TRENCH AND TREAT - Digging a trench, treating the exposed trench, putting back the soil, and treating the filing area is the preferred method of installing and it's called a termite barrier. The trench needs to be a minimum of 100 mm wide and continue to be at least 100 mm below the foundation. Believing a 100 mm wide trench with a 150 mm distance to the top of the footing would equate to a 140 mm x 300 mm trench in which 5.20 L of prepared spray would be applied per lineal meter of the trench. Any changes that need to be reworked based on applying 120 L of set spray per cubic meter of soil are worked out.
DRILLING AND INJECT - This system involves drilling holes around, along the driveway, perimeter, and expansion joints drilling into the concrete or tiles, 300 mm out from the adjacent external perimeter walls with 150 m spaces. When injecting underneath the soil, the rod is normally used with a 4-way multi-directional tip. The rod is inserted down as close to the footing as far as possible to ensure a complete vertical treated zone apart, 3 L of prepared spray is to be used per hole. Holes are sealed or color matched.
