Termite Management Systems
Termite Management Systems include Physical Barriers, Chemical Barriers and Termite Baiting and Monitoring Systems and depending on the system, it may be compliant for a Warranty or Termite Insurance.
Physical Termite Barrier
A Physical Termite Barrier is designed to prevent concealed termite entry to a house and is installed at the time of construction in accordance with AS 3660.1:2014 Termite Management Part 1: New building work.
In order to overcome a Physical Termite Barrier, termites are forced to build visible mud leads that are easily identifiable to a termite inspector or property owner.
Chemical Termite Barrier
A Chemical Termite Barrier is a layer of soil against the external perimeter of a house that extends down the footings that has been treated with a termiticide, in accordance with AS 3660.2:2017 Termite Management Part 2: In and around existing buildings and structures.
The termiticide used for a Chemical Termite Barrier, can be either repellant or non-repellant, depending on which type is used termites are either forced to build visible mud leads that are easily identifiable or to track through the Chemical Termite Barrier becoming infected and transfering that chemical to the other termites in the colony, killing the colony.
Surekil Pest Control uses and recomends Termidor HE, Biflex, Ultrathor and Maxxthor.
Termite Monitoring and Baiting Systems
A Termite Monitoring and Baiting System works by intercepting foraging termites in stations placed around a property and concentrating their feeding in those stations by providing them with a preferred food source. A food source that is used to feed the colony and results in the elimination of that colony.
Surekil Pest Control uses and recomends Exterra, Agenda, TermatriX and Sentricon AlwaysActive.
