To apply a liquid termiticide barrier correctly and in accordance with Australian standards 3660-2, the soil is saturated with a repellanttermiticide. Floor joists or internal timbers, however, are not treated.
Repellanttermiticide treatments are installed to create a barrier that will prevent termites travelling through the soil and gaining entry through the footings of a building. This type of chemical barrier treatment is not designed to kill termites. It also won’t stop termites from turning up in nearby areas that have not been treated. It is designed only to repel termites from the treated structure.
It’s also very important to remember that this type of barrier under a timber ﬂoor building or slab will remain mostly untreated by the termiticide because the chemical is only placed against the building’s footings or stumps and/or directly against the slab edge. As a result, termites may still show up in out-lying areas such as garden beds, timber and in any items stored under the house.
Here is a picture of the trenches in preparation for the termiticide to be applied to a home we treated in Nunnawading. The safest non toxic repellent on the market was used here Altriset.
