A Chemical Termite Barrier is a termiticide-treated layer of soil surrounding and/or under a structure. Pest Guru installs Chemical Termite Barriers in accordance with the Australian Standard 3660 using only using market leading termiticides such as Termidor and Ultrathor.
To create a Chemical Termite Barrier around the external perimeter of a house, a trench is dug to expose the footings, pipe penetrations and remove potential problems like tree roots, clay or other debris. The trench is then flooded with a large volume of termiticide as the soil is replaced in the trench creating a continuous protective barrier around your home.
A reticulation system is pipe work with emitter holes and filler points that is installed in the trench at the same time that the Chemical Barrier is installed. At a later date, chemical can then be pumped through the pipe work to replenish the chemical in the soil and re-establish the Chemical Barrier.
