Termite Chemical Barriers – Treated Zones


Chemical barriers are insecticide barriers placed around existing homes and/or under concrete slabs & foundations for new dwellings by professional pest controllers.


There are several different registered termiticides that can be used and are either categorized as ‘in-soil chemical barriers (applied to soil under or around the foundations of a building) or ‘in-plastic’ chemical barriers (plastic sheets containing insecticide that are installed like physical barriers).


Chemical Barriers are also known as Termite Treated Zones & are a popular and proven method of termite prevention and management for new and existing structures.


Termites that do forage into the treated zone are repelled away by chemicals such as Biflex or affected by the non-repellent chemicals such as Termidor and Altriset.


The life span of termite chemical barriers is 8 to 10 years in ideal conditions.


There are several types of Termite Barriers available and they differ in upfront & ongoing costs, monitoring requirements, residual effects, structural differences & a property’s suitability. It is a good idea to discuss what system best suits your needs with your Pest Control and Termite Specialist.


Examples of Termite Chemical Barriers in Australia include:
• Biflex
• Termidor
• Altristet
