There are several Termite Management Systems that we offer to safe guard your property against a Termite Infestation.

Termite Detection and Termite Control can be simply dividend into three categories:


Termite Inspections - for detection of termite activity & to determine suitable Termite Control measures.

Termite Treatments – chemical treatments designed to kill termites & their colonies.

Termite Management Systems – includes the use of physical Termite Barriers, chemically treated zones (reticulation systems) and Termite Monitoring & Baiting Systems.


Physical Termite Barriers

Physical Termite Barriers are made from metal, crushed rock, wire mesh or other materials that termites find impenetrable.


Barriers are required for new buildings and also can be retro-fitted to existing structures. Most manufacturers of these barriers require the Pest Controllers to be certified in the installation of their system.


Examples of Physical Termite Barriers in Australia include:

  • HomeGuard
  • Kordon Termite Management Barrier
  • Termimesh

Chemical Termite Barriers – Treated Zones

Chemical Termite Barriers are usually 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 for new and existing structures. Termites that do prey into the treated zone are repelled away. 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 Chemical Termite Barriers in Australia include:

  • Biflex
  • Termidor
  • Premise

Termite Reticulation Systems

Termite Reticulation Systems are physical barriers that also store chemical treatments and are designed to impede the entry of termites into the building as well as aid in the detection and eradication of termites if entry still becomes possible.


In some states of Australia, builders must have a physical termite barrier or a reticulation system installed before a concrete slab is poured for a new building.


With Termites causing more damage in Australia than fire, flood and other accidental causes it pays for all new houses in all parts of Australia to be fitted with a Termite Reticulation System.


There are a few reticulation models so it pays to discuss your options with your Pest Controller who will be able to assess your individual needs based on your geographical location, building structure & budget constraints and other variables. Most reputable reticulation systems available also require the pest controller to be accredited or certified with the installation and monitoring of these systems.


Examples of Reticulation Systems in Australia include:

  • Termguard Perimeter System
  • Altis Termite Reticulation System
  • Camilleri Under Slab Injection System
  • Trithor Termite Protection
  • Termx Replenishment System

Termite Monitoring & Baiting

A popular method used for controlling termites is “termite monitoring”. Small ‘stations’ generally cylindrical in shape are installed around the perimeter of a property and near areas that are conducive to termite foraging.  These monitoring stations are then checked regularly for signs of termite activity.


If termite activity is discovered then bait can be applied to these stations which worker termites will ingest and carry back to the nest, where the entire termite colony is exposed and infected.


Examples of Termite Monitoring Systems in Australia include:

  • Exterra Baiting and Monitoring Stations
  • Sentricon Colony Elimination System
  • Nemesis Termite Bait System
