Ozzie Pest Control is fully licenced and experienced with various building design styles and the required termite management systems to ensure termites are never an issue for new home or building owners.
Termite management for new homes prior to the year 2000 mostly consisted of hand spraying the soil substrate under the concrete slab, which was fine, however the useful life of the chemical would decline over a period of time and allow termites to gain access to the building. Generally these termite management system treatments needed to be renewed to be effective. After the year 2000, termite management systems installed into buildings needed to last the life of the building or at least be able to be renewed.
Generally the type of termite management systems can be divided into 2 main types which are physical termite termite management system and chemical termite termite management system. These systems can be used together or separately to deliver termite protection. The physical termite termite management system are typically constructed from materials such as Stainless Steel mesh, Plastic sheeting which is impregnated with chemical, Metal strip sheeting, fine stone and glass particle termite management system. There is also some paint on style physical termite management system.
Chemical soil termite management system are a liquid termiticide chemical which is usually distributed onto the soil to deter termite entry to the building.
These systems are usually incorporated into buildings at the construction stage, which usually means under the concrete slab for new homes and extensions for slab on ground style homes or in the external wall cavity.
There is a wide variety of products on the market which can be used for this purpose and each product may suit different building applications better than others.
