Pre-Construction Pest Control Systems
Termites can destroy any structure from the inside out, and most of the damage can be done before they are even detected. The most unfortunate fact is that termite damage is not covered by most insurance policies. Pest Control Queensland are specialists in new home and renovation treatments for termite and moisture protection.
Termite barriers commence from under the slab, hence spraying the soil prior to the slab being poured. This is crucial in preventing termite attacks from under concrete areas which may be very expensive to treat if an attack has occurred and this treatment has not been carried out.
Pest Control Queensland also provides treatments for reticulation systems and termite barriers are available.
The Termguard Reticulation Systems have been extensively tested and successfully used over the past two decades, and have been specifically designed to offer long-term termite management and damage prevention systems.
Together with today’s environmentally acceptable termite control agents, Termguard’s termite reticulation systems have been the perfect partner to provide an effective replenishable barrier, yet minimise the total impact of the Environment.
Trithor Termite Protection
Trithor is a flexible termite management system that may be installed to perimeters, cold joints and in many difficult and complicated situations including multiple penetrations and step downs. Quickly installed, it is completely concealed from view.
The polymers used in Trithor are inedible to termites and, since Trithor also acts as a moisture barrier, it further reduces the attractiveness of a property to termites.
Trithor consists of a geotextile blanket impregnated with deltamethrin. The unique Thermo-compression Technology then locks the deltamethrin into the blanket before it is laminated top and bottom with a rugged plastic membrane. This complex entrapment process ensures that the deltamethrin remains trapped within the inner blanket.
This means it is non-hazardous to anyone handling the product or who comes into contact with it. The control agent in Trithor, deltamethrin, is an insecticide that is modelled on the natural pyrethrins produced by the chrysanthemum daisy, nature’s own cure for insect problems. Consequently it is low in toxicity to warm-blooded animals, though deadly to termites and other insects. Better yet, deltamethrin both kills and strongly deters termites.
Whether building new structures or dwellings, TermX Replenishment System is equally suited to protecting your investment. Being made of a rigid and specially reinforced material specifically designed for this purpose, TermX is ideal for use under metal reinforcing, concrete slabs, and new construction. TermX was built tough to take the hardest knocks dished out during pre-construction installation. The TermX Replenishment System is the only system in the world that has the unique ability to have chemical foam put through it.
What does this mean to you?
During the process of a concrete slab settling after being poured, soil subsidence occurs i.e. the soil under the slab subsides away from the concrete, leaving gaps and voids. Realising this, the designers at TermX developed the system to enable the application of foaming insecticides so that chemical can be carried to the upper surfaces that other systems cannot protect.
