Termite management solution – chemical treated zone

When it comes to protecting your home from termite attacks there are two solutions that are ideal for post-construction protection: (1.) the chemical treated zone and (2.) the monitoring zone.

Let’s look first at the chemical treated zone.

1. Chemical treated zone

A highly effective liquid chemical like Bayer’s Premise 200 SC is used to treat around the perimeter and other termite entry points located in your home to provide an effective and reliable zone that will expose the termites’ attempt to enter your home.

Precision Pest Control does this by having a qualified technician:

  1. Conduct a thorough inspection to identify any possible signs of termite activity both past and current.
  2. Apply the chemical to create the treated zones:
    • Digging trenches around the perimeter of the structure and around the other contact points including supports, piers and plumbing.
    • Carefully drilling into the concrete slab areas that adjoin the buildings perimeter, e.g. pathways.
    • In some cases a termite chemical reticulation system may be installed so chemical can be reapplied if necessary.
  3. We recommend that our customers at the very least get annual termite inspections.
ADVANTAGES DISADVANTAGES
Treated zone is effective for a number of years. Treated zone will need to be replenished at some point.
Depending on treatment type, this will repel termites or kill them as they cross the barrier. If the treated zone is disturbed or covered, the barrier may be breached or bridged.


Things you need to know as the homeowner

  1. The chemical that is applied needs to make contact with the slab edge and footings of the structure.
  2. If your home has a suspended floor the chemical needs to be applied externally and underneath the house.
  3. Where possible the paving, tiles and concrete should be removed to treat the soil directly when treating the perimeter of the building.
  4. If you are unable to treat directly, the chemical will be applied by injecting into the soil after careful drilling through concrete and tiles has been completed. Drill holes/injection points will be resealed.
