At Sydney Wide Pest Solutions we have dedicated specialists in termites management and eradication. We have termite treatments for both new construction homes and existing dwellings which are conducted in accordance to the AS3660.1-2014. Termite treatments to existing dwellings may require a variety of different approaches depending how the dwelling has been constructed. The methods available are chemical barriers and monitoring/baiting stations.
New construction dwellings are required to have a termite barrier installed prior to construction of walls (either brick or timber frames), this includes either a physical barrier installed along the perimeter and under the external and internal wall frames, creating a barrier within the wall cavity. Prior to this termite protective collars are required to be placed over all services such as plumbing pipes that will pretude the concrete slab, these are to be installed once steel is in place prior to concrete being poured. At Sydney Wide Pest Solutions we use Australian made products and are also accredited installers of Termseal.
Another option that may be required by council is a termite chemical barrier, this requires a pest technician to place a conduit like system that have small incision drain holes every 200mm. This is placed surrounding the concrete slab edge at appropriately 300mm below external concrete or soil surrounding. Exposed refill points and stations are required to be at external floor height for future chemical applications. Depending on the termiticide chemical used will determine life expectancy and application being between every 3-5 years. For existing dwellings, a termite technician will assess the property prior to treatment to indicate proper treatment steps.
