Termite chemical barrier system – Termidor

What is a chemical barrier treatment?

A chemical Barrier is a primary system to prevent Termites attacking your home. It involves digging a small trench around the perimeter of your home and drenching termiticide to the soil. Treating open soil and garden areas involves a process called Trench; Treat & Backfill treating soil under pavers will require the pavers to be lifted not unless they are concreted down.

Treating soil under concrete and tiles can be performed using 2 different methods:

  • Drill & Inject; or
  • Cutting and Re-capping

Drill and Inject

This method involves drilling holes every 200mm apart through the concrete/tiles and injecting a specific amount of termiticide in each hole. The holes are than resealed by either using a mortar mix or coloured plastic plugs. This method is not as effective as cutting and re-capping since the soil being treated is unseen. And twice as much termiticide is used compared to cutting and recapping.

Cutting and Re-Capping - the preferred method

This method involves cutting the concrete along the perimeter of the structure and then treating the soil using the Trench, Treat, Backfill method.  The concrete can be re-capped using new concrete or paver’s. Using pavers will make the next treatment in 8 years much easier and off course less costly.

Which termiticide do you recommend?

We highly recommend Termidor

Termidor is costly though but highly effective. This is what we at Redknight use to protect our own home. Fipronil is the key ingredient in termidor and is the latest breakthrough in termite control.

What is a repellent termiticide?

“All of the synthetic chemicals classified as "Repellent Termiticides" are pyrethroids. An example of this type of repellent termiticide is Bifenthrin.

"Repellent Termiticides" do not kill termites because the termites are able to detect the treatment in the soil. The termiticide only repels the termites. Termites are very persistent they will not stop trying to find a way in. All they need is a break of the size of the thickness of a credit card and there are in.

We at Redknight only use non repellent type highly effctive termiticides like Termidor.
