How Can You Protect Your Sydney Home Or Business Against Termites?
Control methods for termites can essentially be divided into two groups: Pre Construction and Post Construction. Pre Construction measures are applied during the construction of new buildings and Post Construction measures are applied to pre existing buildings.
Pre Construction Termite Control
Pipe Penetration Collars
Pipe penetration collars are installed to the pipes of buildings built on concrete slabs.
These collars are a physical barrier stopping termites from entering the building through the small gaps found around pipes once the concrete has set. Pipe collars are available in various sizes 40mm, 50mm, 65mm, 80mm or 100mm. These pipe penetration collars comply with the Australian Standards AS 3660.1-2014

Termseal Ura-Fen Shield Under slab barrier and Ura-Fen Shield Perimeter Wall Cavity Barrier
TERM-seal Ura-Fen Shield is a physical barrier made up of a flexible tri-layer sheet. A top and bottom untreated polyolefin cover sheet with an active matrix sheet of open cell polyurethane foam that contains 2gm/kg Bifenthrin as the active ingredient and provides long term repellent properties and protection against termites. Ura-Fen Shield is installed during the construction phase and is designed mainly for concrete slab constructed buildings. Term-seal ura-fen is installed under concrete slabs, across wall cavities, construction joints, and pipe penetrations or as an ant capping. Termseal Ura-fen Shield complies with the Australian Standards AS 3660.1-2014
Termseal Multipurpose Active Coating
Termseal Multi-Purpose Active is a combined termite and water proofing paint on membrane. This product is a highly engineered acrylic polymer which forms a seamless, flexible, termite resistant and waterproof membrane. Applications include back filled walls, internal walls, slab edges, construction joints and more. Termseal Multipurpose Active Coating complies with the Australian Standards 3660.1-2014
Pre Construction Termite Chemical Barrier
A pre construction termite chemical barrier also referred to as a soil spray consists of a two stage process. The first stage is the application of a Termiticide to the soil of where the proposed concrete slab is going to be poured. At this time all pipe penetrations are also protected prior to the moisture membrane and steelwork being installed. The second stage is the application of a Termiticide to the perimeter of the structure before any driveways, paths and landscaping is completed. A pre construction termite chemical barrier complies with the Australian Standards 3660.1-2014
Termite Reticulation System
A termite reticulation system is a scientifically designed irrigation pipe system which is designed mainly to be installed around the external perimeter of a concrete slab constructed building. Once installed the pipe is then pumped with a Termiticide that is released through the dripper holes along the pipe creating a chemical barrier. This system is suited for both pre construction and post construction termite control. This system should be replenished with a Termicide every at least every 3-5 years through the filling points installed. A termite reticulation system complies with the Australian Standards 3660.1-2014
Post Construction Termite Control
Post Construction Termite Chemical Barrier
This a treatment that is carried out to protect existing buildings or when termites have infested a building which is referred to as a post construction termite chemical barrier. Termicide is applied by creating a trench along all the buildings footings and by drilling through concrete paths that may abut the building. Termiticide is then applied to all the footings to create a continuous chemical barrier. A post construction termite chemical barrier complies with the Australian Standards AS 3660.2-2000.
Termite Bait / Monitoring Stations
A termite bait station system is a non-chemical barrier option in the protection of termites to a building. The system is installed by digging bait stations into the soil or boring into concrete paths that may abut the building. Bait stations need to be installed at least every 2 to 3 metres around the exterior of the building. These bait stations are filled with a food source containing cellulose which will attract any termites within close proximity to the bait station. This is the monitoring phase of the termite bait stations. Once the termites become active in the bait station a bait matrix is then added into the bait station. Termites will feed off the bait matrix until the colony is eliminated. These bait stations should be regularly inspected at least every 1-2 months by a professional. Once it is determined that a colony has been eliminated, the bait should be removed and the food source replaced. By doing this, the bait stations will act as a monitoring device for any future termite activity.
Termite Reticulation System
A termite reticulation system is a scientifically designed irrigation pipe system which is designed mainly to be installed around the external perimeter of a concrete slab constructed building. Once installed the pipe is then pumped with a Termiticide that is released through the dripper holes along the pipe creating a chemical barrier.

This system should be replenished with a Termicide every at least every 3-5 years though the filling points installed. A termite reticulation system complies with the Australian Standards 3660.1-2014
