Termite Barrier In Newcastle
All About Termite Barriers
Barriers are potentially one of the most effective ways to contain termites. This is because termites are difficult to remove once an infestation is in place, and are easily prevented with some easy precautions.
With as much as 33% of Australian homes dealing with some level of termite infestation, a barrier can be a great way to keep them, and other pests, at bay. A termite barrier is usually not a structural treatment (though these are also available).
It is a chemical treatment that will keep termites away from wood. The barrier will surround the perimeter of a building so that the termites steer well clear.
Of course, you will want to ensure that you get a termite inspection with Hunter and Coast before you get the chemical barrier. This is because if there are termites inside the house, then the barrier is pointless. You will soon be dealing with a full-blown infestation. You will then have to get professional services to remove the termites before you enforce the termite barrier.
Ensure that your termite barrier is safe and sound before you make a purchase. Hunter and Coast only use approved treatments that are not harmful to humans and have acceptable levels of toxicity. We will also advise you on the specific agent and what to do when putting down the barrier.
The termite barrier is not actually inside your home but will be placed in the soil surrounding your home, in a trench outside the property. There is little threat to you, but much danger for hungry termites. Prevention is always the best cure.

How much does a termite barrier cost?
The cost of a termite barrier ranges from around $1,500 to $3,500 for the average Australian home. This cost varies depending on the size of your house, as well as whether you’d prefer a repellent or non-repellent chemical. A repellent chemical is cheaper as it simply deters termites from entering your home but does not kill them. A non-repellent treatment will kill off termites upon ingestion or contact.
How long does the termite barrier last?
You can expect a chemical termite barrier to offer your house protection against termites for around 5 to 8 years. After this time, it’s best to call a pest control service once again to redo the chemical treatment. A physical barrier lasts longer at around 20 years but they are not as effective as a chemical termite barrier. A physical barrier simply reduces the risk of termites getting in, but they won’t kill off the termites.
What is the best termite barrier?
The most effective termite barrier is a non-repellent termite chemical barrier. When termites eat this chemical solution, they will die. If they come into contact with the chemical barrier, they end up carrying around this solution and spreading it back to their colonies. Because they cannot detect the presence of this chemical, they eventually ingest it as they go about their normal routines.
