Why We Love the Termite Barrier System (and You Should, Too!)
Sunshine Coast Termite Barrier Systems
Great strides are being made in pest control, and both chemical and physical barrier systems continue to evolve, allowing specialists such as Little Critters Pest Control & Termite Management Specialists in Queensland to provide increasingly effective methods of controlling termite damage to properties in the state of Queensland.
There are termites in almost all urban areas throughout Queensland
While the beauty of our state is renowned, weather conditions do make it ideal for pests such as termites – a word that should strike fear in any property owner’s heart – to proliferate.
One in three properties in Australia are affected in some way by termites
Two kinds of barrier systems are available: chemical and physical. Costs vary depending on the construction style, modifications, soil type and environmental pressure of the structure and the severity of the infestation. As termites are resourceful and destructive pests, it is wise to call in the professionals rather than to try and deal with the problem yourself, because experience counts and a thorough knowledge of the workings of a termite colony is necessary.
Physical termite barrier systems are 100 per cent poison-free and require little maintenance
Physical barriers are made of metal or plastic and they are put down around penetrations and the perimeter of the house during construction. Since 2001 physical barriers have been a compulsory part of the building code of practice. They can be expected to last up to 20 years, though they can be breached if there is one small crack.
With chemical barriers, on the other hand, just one contaminated termite can spread the chemical to the rest of the colony and effectively wipe it out. Chemical barriers, however, encompass a wide variety of options and mode of action, from environmentally friendly to the ability to contaminate just one termite which can spread the chemical to the rest of the colony and effectively wipe it out.
