Contrary to popular beliefs Subterranean Termites (White Ants) are easy to find, If you know what to look for.
Subterranean Termites are present in and around most homes and gardens. One in four homes either currently have or have had at some time been attacked by subterranean termites causing millions of dollars worth of damage every year. '
Termite treatments to most homes can be divided into 2 main categories, CHEMICAL BARRIERS and TERMITE BAITING SYSTEMS. This article summarises the options and outlines the advantages of the Exterra Termite Interception and Baiting System.
Until recently, the almost exclusively used method of termite management was the application of a toxic chemical soil barrier. The application of such a barrier to your home would typically involve spraying large volumes of toxic and environmentally persistent chemicals around and under its foundation in close proximity to you and your family. But Exterra radically changes all that.
It is installed to the foundations of new buildings or extensions to provide a continuous barrier, which prevents concealed entry of termites into the building, thereby protecting the asset. The HomeGuard product range is manufactured in Australia from polymer based products and incorporates FMC’s leading liquid termite barrier Biflex, which has protected over one million homes in Australia.
It is a patented Reticulation System designed to effectively treat the area under concrete slabs, for protection against infestation by subterranean termites and around the external perimeter of structures to prevent termites entering from the outside of a building.
