Termite Treatments

“Subterranean” Termites:

This name simply means termites that live and must always remain “below the ground”. Subterranean termites cannot survive exposed to air or light. This is an important point to remember in understanding termites and termite treatments. If subterranean termites meet an obstacle they cannot tunnel through (eg some rock, metal or certain plastics), they search for a way around it. If they must move out of the soil to go over the obstacle, they will build tiny mud tunnels that go over it and then back into hiding on the other side. (These mud tunnels are often called “termite workings”).

It is also important to remember that termites, like ants, live in colonies. These colonies are based in nests with a queen ever pumping out new termites. The nest may be several metres away from any termites found on your property. This means that killing a few termites that you may see WILL NOT solve the problem. There are hundreds more unseen termites right behind them! The entire colony must be destroyed.

Pre-construction:

This merely refers to anything that is done to a building before it has already been constructed, (eg pre-pour of a concrete slab).

Termite Barrier:

Sometimes referred to as a “barrier” or “treated zone”, this is a band or strip of some kind, designed to stop termites getting through. Some barriers are designed to keep the termites out altogether, some are simply intended to stop concealed termite entry by forcing the termites to build tunnels over the barrier so they can be seen and treated, while some deliberately allow the termites to pass through the barrier with the termites picking up a fatal chemical on their way through that they will carry back to the nest & share with the rest of their colony.

NOTE: No termite barrier is absolutely fool-proof. On very rare occasions, termites can cheat even the best of barriers. However, quality barriers, correctly installed, do greatly reduce the chances of termite attack.(ref: Aust Standards 3360).

Types of Termite Barriers:

There are two main kinds of termite barriers: physical barriers and chemical barriers.

Physical Termite Barriers

The physical termite barriers are made of various materials that termites either can’t, or (usually) won’t travel through, for example, trenches dug all around a building, rather like a moat around a castle, filled with finely crushed granite. (With no soil or organic matter to tunnel through, termites tend to turn back and avoid the granite).

Chemical Termite Barriers:

There are various chemical barriers available. Most are created when the soil is treated (soaked) with a residual “termiticide” (ie a long-lasting insecticide specifically designed for termites).

All termiticides used by Lindar Pest Control are water-based and extremely low toxicity to humans, pets and wildlife. This means that after a few years these chemicals will break down and be, at least partially, washed away by rain and watering. On the Central Coast, these chemical treatments usually remain effective in soil for about 5 years. After this time, the chemical needs to be re-applied.

Complete:

In this case, this term refers to a barrier that is continuous (without gaps), both underneath any concrete slab (part A) and adjacent to / around all possible parts of the building that are in contact with the soil (part B).
