    We Offer Two Types Of Chemical Termite Barriers:

    For new homes, physical termite barriers are typically installed during construction. However, existing homes require professional intervention. Our skilled pest control technicians can employ a range of chemical termite barrier sprays to prevent termites from entering your property.

    1. Repellant Chemical Barriers: These repellents are designed to keep termites at bay. While effective, the downside is that termites can detect areas where the repellent hasn’t been applied, leaving room for exploitation.
    2. Non-repellent Chemical Barriers: Our preferred choice at Tom’s Pest Control Perth, non-repellent termite barrier sprays are undetectable by termites. They kill termites on contact, ensuring their eradication. We use this chemical termite barrier to protect your home effectively.

    Traditional Liquid Termite Barriers: Ensuring Long-lasting Termite Protection

    When it comes to safeguarding your home from termites, traditional liquid termite barriers have proven to be the go-to choice for homeowners. These popular forms of termite protection involve the application of a liquid termiticide, which can be sprayed underneath a slab during new home constructions, around the external perimeter of an existing house, or piped through a termite  reticulated system surrounding your property.

    What sets liquid termite barriers apart is their ability to provide long-term protection, typically ranging from 5 to 10 years. However, it is important to note that re-application will be necessary after the expiration of the barrier’s lifespan. At Perth Pest Control, we offer four registered termite barrier products, each catered to your specific needs and preferences.

    Explore These Products In More Detail:

    • Biflex Aqua Max – Our Popular Choice

    Biflex Aqua Max is our most sought-after termite treatment option. This odourless, water-based, and synthetic pyrethroid solution emulates the highly effective insecticide pyrethrum, derived from the pyrethrum daisy. With Biflex, you benefit from the longest protection period among termiticides. Rainfall or lawn and garden watering won’t cause the barrier to leach away, thanks to its non-leachable formula. Moreover, Biflex Aqua Max is non-systemic, so your garden plants and other vegetation won’t transport the barrier away from the treated area. With this treatment, your termite problems are swiftly resolved through killing and repelling termites, while an invisible protective shield is established around your home for a solid 10 years, backed by our comprehensive warranty.

    • Termidor – Encouraging Termites to Spread the Treatment

    Termidor is a relatively new water-based and odourless treatment that has gained considerable popularity in recent years. Instead of functioning primarily as a barrier to repel termites, Termidor lures termites into a treated zone, where it bonds to their cuticles. Though termites won’t perish immediately, their social behaviour ensures that they pass the toxin onto others in the colony. Even termites that don’t directly encounter the treated zone will eventually succumb to the infection, thanks to contact with infected nest mates. Termidor comes with an 8-year warranty, offering an extended period of termite protection.

    • Premise – Unseen Yet Highly Effective

    Similar to Termidor, Premise is a non-repellent termiticide. Its ingenious formulation ensures that termites remain blissfully unaware of its presence as they enter treated zones, unknowingly carrying the poison back to the colony and infecting other members. Water-based, non-odorous, and low in toxicity to humans and pets, Premise treatments come with a 5-year warranty, providing you with peace of mind.

    At Perth Pest Control, we understand the significance of effective termite protection. With our range of traditional liquid termite barriers, you can count on long-lasting defence against these damaging pests. Consult our experts today to determine the ideal solution for your home.

    • Introducing Altriset: A Revolutionary Solution for Termite Control

    In the battle against termites, Altriset has emerged as the latest liquid termiticide, marking a significant breakthrough. What sets Altriset apart is not just its exceptional effectiveness, but also its environmentally friendly nature as a natural water-based termiticide. Remarkably, it has obtained exemption from poison scheduling by the esteemed Australian regulatory authorities due to its impeccable safety record around humans and pets.

    The power of Altriset lies in its active ingredient, derived from a naturally occurring compound found in the bark of the South American plant, Ryania speciosa. Harnessing the potential of this plant, scientists have formulated a termiticide that functions unlike any other. Opting for Altriset means choosing a low-dose treatment with long-lasting residual control, effectively targeting termite muscles and halting their feeding within hours.

    Rather than acting instantaneously, Altriset’s unique mode of action facilitates increased transfer within the termite colony, ensuring a more extensive eradication process. This controlled elimination of termite infestations makes Altriset a groundbreaking solution for residential termite barriers, backed by a 5-year warranty for ultimate peace of mind.

    At Perth Pest Control, we prioritise not only the efficacy of our termite barriers but also the safety of our clients and the environment. That’s why all our treatments are water-based, ensuring a scentless and eco-responsible approach while posing minimal hazard to humans, cats, dogs, and other mammals. While solvent-based alternatives may appear tempting due to their lower cost, we have witnessed the associated health problems during the drying process, particularly for asthmatics. Rest assured, we only recommend and employ water-based treatments, delivering uncompromised termite protection with an added touch of environmental friendliness.

    Moreover, it’s worth noting that Australia boasts one of the most rigorous pest control regulatory systems worldwide. As such, all termiticides used in common practice have undergone meticulous evaluation and testing, earning the approval of state and national government authorities. At Perth Pest Control, we are deeply committed to adhering strictly to all applicable government regulations concerning the methods and treatments employed for termite control, ensuring the highest degree of professionalism and compliance.

    Termidor Termite Treatment® FAQ’s

    Is My Termidor® Treatment Ok After Heavy Rain?

    The key to the suitability of any termiticide in a wet environment is the propensity to leach through a soil profile upon a wetting event. The main measure for ability to leach is the product’s water solubility. Termidor has very low water solubility and therefore will not leach through the soil. Termidor tightly binds to organic matter in soil, which also limits its movement. All of these physical and chemical characteristics contribute to Termidor remaining active in the treated zones close to the foundations of the structure for as long as the soil and foundations have not been compromised or the normal time span for degradation has elapsed.

    This includes soils that have been located in flooded areas. As an example, whilst conducting long-term field trials throughout Australia, a Townsville site suffered a major flood which completely submerged the Termidor treated plots for a lengthy period. It can be seen from the graph below that there was no effect on the amount of Termidor present in the soil.

    My House Was Subject To Major Flooding. Is My Termidor Treatment Still Working?

    This depends on a number of factors. Your Accredited Termidor Applicator is in the best position to determine this via a thorough inspection and written report. As a guide, Termidor should be used to re-establish the treated zones when:

    • Soil erosion next to foundations has removed protective termite treatment zones.
    • Any rectification work has moved or removed treated soil.
    • Flooding has brought new, untreated soil next to the foundation.
    • Foundation elements have shifted/moved or soil subsidence has occurred and untreated soil now requires a Termidor treatment.
    • Treatments with other more water soluble products are suspected to no longer be in place to protect the structure (from previous use of non-Termidor materials).
    • Adjacent patios, driveways, concrete pathways, asphalt pads, etc have moved and exposed soil areas that can now be treated. Especially when repaired and previous soil is moved.
    • Landscaping has been repaired, added, etc and the previously treated zones have been disturbed.
    • Repairs to the structure (especially foundation repairs) leads to the presence of untreated zones.

    After receiving the inspection and written report it can be a little confusing with an overload of information. It is important that you sit down and discuss the report with your Accredited Termidor Applicator to understand the recommendations (why they are important), agree on a plan to carry out the recommendations and review the success after implementing the recommendations. Following this advice is very important, as it will affect the quality of the treatment and may also affect any warranty given by the pest manager.

    What Does All This Flooding Do To The Termite Threat?

    The termite threat in areas that have suffered excessive rain events may actually increase. Termites increase their population based on a number of factors including access to moisture and food sources. Obviously after heavy sustained rainfall, the soil will hold moisture for a long period of time which the termites will enjoy. Added to this is the increase in building timber and tree debris left behind after the water recedes.

    Quite often this is buried in land fill or stacked in a pile which adds a new food source which can sustain a larger termite population. As a consequence, termite pressure will, in time, be more severe. Therefore it is imperative that an Accredited Termidor Applicator performs a thorough inspection of the site to assess the risk and provide recommendations to protect your home from future termite infestations. These should be conducted at least every 12 months into the future.

    How Soon After Heavy Rain Or Flooding Can A Termidor Treatment Be Done?

    As stated above, Termidor binds strongly to the soil particles and will not leach through the soil profile. However, this is based on soil that is not saturated at the time of treatment. If the soil is saturated, the Termidor (and any other termiticide) will remain in the water phase with little chance to bind to organic matter in the soil profile. Therefore the soil needs time to dry out enough so that the soil profile is not in a saturated state. This drying time depends on the type of soil, site drainage and the weather conditions after the original wetting event. Your Accredited Termidor Applicator is in the best position to answer this question.

    What Makes Termidor So Effective?

    The crucial advantage Termidor has over many other products is that it doesn’t repel termites. Termites are able to detect the older chemicals in the soil and stay away from them. That means the termites remain active and unaffected, still exploring the area and potentially looking for ways into your home. Termites can’t detect the treated zone so, as they continue to forage through the soil and unknowingly come into contact with Termidor.

    The Genuine Termidor Transfer Effect™

    Because affected termites can’t detect Termidor, they carry it back to the nest on their bodies and pass it on to other termites, hence the devastating Genuine Termidor Transfer Effect. Termidor can control whole termite populations faster than any other treatment, but it is relatively slow-acting in individual termites. This means termites have ample time before dying to spread Termidor to their nest, and the entire colony.  The combination of Termidor being undetectable in the soil and its Transfer Effect mean no other termiticide performs as well as Termidor.

    Why Should You Insist On Termidor?

    Over 400,000 homeowners for the past 18 years have been satisfied with Termidor protecting their homes, without a single product failure. That is why it comes with an eight-year warranty and is Australia’s number one trusted brand for termite control. Termidor’s Genuine Transfer Effect™ takes advantage of the social behaviors of termites living and feeding in large colonies where they are in constant contact.

    When a single termite comes into contact with a Termidor treated zone, it will unknowingly transfer it back to the colony on its body, infecting termites that have not even been near the Termidor treated zone. This is the ‘Transfer Effect’ and a key reason why no other termiticide performs as well as Termidor.

    Termites can’t detect Termidor due to its innovative, non-repellent technology, so they can pick up a lethal dose while foraging in treated areas. As a result, Termidor works quicker and more effectively than other inferior termite control options.

    1. An Accredited Termidor Applicator will conduct a thorough inspection of your property – should termites be found, a treatment with Termidor Foam will be required to quickly stop activity within your home.
