What is a termite barrier? And Why Are They Important?
A termite barrier is a physical or chemical barrier that helps to keep out termites from entering the home. Primarily, termite barriers do two things. Firstly, they act as physical obstacles that either kill or block out any advancing termites. Secondly, special chemical products called termiticides are used in order to repel or kill the termites from within. The most common type of these barriers is what is known as post construction treatments and involve applying a protective band of liquid around your property.
Types Of Termite Barriers
Physical Termites Barriers
These types of termite barriers help to stop harmful insects like termites from entering your home near vulnerable areas such as the eaves, pipes and other hard to reach places. They can help prevent infestations by blocking access points in your home that aren’t noticeable with the human eye. And they come in various materials, including mudsill plates and anti-termite foams, which you can apply yourself if so desired!
Advantages of Physical Termite Barriers
- Easy-to-use and cost effective way to control and fight against termite infestations
- Specially designed to protect your property against subterranean entry points
- Protect vulnerable areas such as eaves where it might be difficult for pests to get inside your home through
Chemical Termite Barriers
Chemically based barriers are sprayed around the perimeter of properties in order to ward off invasions from insects like ants and other wood destroying organisms made up two different kinds – repellent termiticides and non-repellent termiticides. Repellent ones are applied around the perimeter edges around properties while non-repellents last a bit longer but also poison their food sources within after they consume them. These usually require professional installation so be sure not to attempt this kind on your own!
1. Repellent Termiticides
These products create a protective barrier surrounding your house that helps keep out all unwelcome creepy crawlies like spiders and cockroaches too!
2. Non-Repellant Termiticides
Non-repellent termiticides are long lasting and provide excellent protection against wood-destroying pests like termites. Not only do they repel these critters with their chemicals, but they also poison their food sources after being consumed for added reinforcement!
Which is Better Between Physical and Chemical Barriers?
When it comes to protecting your home, there are two general types of termite barriers; physical and chemical barriers. Chemical barriers are the most common since it’s a lot easier to apply than placing a physical barrier around an entire property. However, physical barriers such as treated or wire meshing may be required in certain cases as well, do discuss this with our professional technicians when deciding on the best option for your property.
