Termite Barriers Brisbane Area – EPM Termite Barrier Protection
Every property owner in the Brisbane area knows the damage an invasion of termites can do to buildings. Brisbane climatic conditions favour termites, and these hungry creatures are always on the lookout for new food sources.
Subterranean termites create the most damage. They form large underground nests, housing hundreds of thousands of termites, and worker termites must feed them all. Regular inspections by professional termite treatment service providers will help to protect your property from termite damage, and termite barriers are very effective in keeping these pests out.
How Termite Barriers Work
Termite barriers stop termites from getting to your home or commercial premises. Termite barriers come in various forms. According to building regulations, all new buildings must have termite barriers.
At EPM Pest Control, we use Termidor termite barriers as they are most effective because the chemical has no smell or taste. Because of this, the pest won’t realize that they have just hit a deadly barrier. Termidor will eventually kill the termites, but not before they have taken the poison back to the nest.
Termites are sociable pests. They constantly groom each other. The workers return food to the nest and regurgitate it for the other nest dwellers. In this way, the poison is spread throughout the nest, getting rid of your termite problem along the way.
Physical Termite Barriers
Physical barriers are installed during construction or major renovations. The termite barriers are sheets that cover the slab, preventing subterranean termites from getting in through cracks in the foundation
Chemical Termite Barriers
Chemical barriers fall into two basic types
Repellent barriers – repellent barriers act quickly in knocking down an invading pest.
Non-repellent barriers – non-repellent barriers take time to knock down an invading termite, allowing it to return to the colony and spread the chemical to the rest of the colony.
Termite Reticulation Systems
Termite reticulation systems form part of the Qld regulations for new construction. The system is installed under paved areas, allowing for the replenishment of termiticide for better insect control. You can also install a reticulation barrier around an established building for a quicker, less expensive chemical top-up service.
Yearly Termite Inspections
Your Termidor barrier carries a warranty on condition that you arrange annual termite inspections of your Brisbane property. The inspection will ensure that the barrier is still effective and that your property is termite free.
It is always a good idea to arrange a regular pest inspection and service to keep your property free of pests.

TERMITE BARRIER BENEFITS
Strategically placed termite barriers offer the most effective termite protection you can get. They prevent termites from infiltrating your buildings and can lead to the extermination of the entire termite colony.
Modern chemical termite barriers, like Termidor, are environmentally-friendly and safe around children and pets. The chemical used is the same as that used in animal flea collars.
Insurance companies won’t cover damage caused by termites, so the money spent on termite barriers is definitely worth the investment. Termite damage to buildings can run into thousands of dollars and put the integrity of the building at risk.
