Customers Brings Expired Termite Barrier Back To Life.
The results from the Building and Pest Inspection showed there was an expired Termite Barrier in place. Installed over 10 years ago the Termite Barrier is truly out of date. With all the drill holes existing, bringing a Barrier back to life is relatively easy.
All the holes are re-drilled and improved apon. Some we found were only drilled down to 100mm or so. With these holes we checked for any local utilities/services. Then carefully drilling down another 200mm or so until we feel that we passed the concrete slab.
Once cleared we then go about injecting the Termidor into the holes and dispersing it under the concrete as best we can. The holes are then finished off with plastic plugs and can be painted the same colour as the surrounding area.
During the Termite Barrier Installation we saw a lot of black ants entering the property. They were inside the house scavenging for food. The new tenants were a week away from moving in so we did a full Pest Control Treatment at no charge while we were there. Happy customer and happy tenants.
What if Active Termites are there?
There were no existing active Termites at the property. This customer lives interstate and just wanted 8 years peace of mind that his Investment Property is better protected from foraging Termites. If there were active Termites in the property then we would have had to complete a Termite Treatment before installing the Termite Barrier.
Proactive Termite Control is much cheaper in the long run. The alternative is being reactive and treating active Termites and repairing potentially costly Termite Damage. Once Termites are in the walls the only way to see the extent of damage is to remove wall paneling. Prior to this we can conduct an invasive inspection using a boroscope but it has limited visibility.
If you have an Expired Termite Barrier or one that is nearing its warranty period end then give us a call on 1300077133 to discuss your options.
