    Termite Reticulation Systems FAQs

    What Is A Termite Reticulation System?

    A termite reticulation system is an advanced pest control solution designed to protect your property from termite infestations. It consists of a network of underground pipes that distribute a termite barrier treatment throughout the soil surrounding your home. This creates a continuous chemical or physical barrier that deters termites from accessing your property, providing long-lasting protection against termite damage.

    What Is A Reticulated Pipe?

    A reticulated pipe is a specially designed pipe used in termite reticulation systems. These pipes feature small perforations or nozzles that allow the even distribution of termite barrier treatments into the surrounding soil. Reticulated pipes are typically made from durable materials that can withstand underground conditions and resist corrosion over time.

    How Do I Install A Termite Reticulation System?

    Installing a termite reticulation system requires professional expertise to ensure proper function and effectiveness. The process generally involves the following steps:

    1. Trenching: Digging a trench around the perimeter of your property to accommodate the reticulation pipes.
    2. Pipe installation: Laying the reticulated pipes in the trench, ensuring they are properly connected and positioned for optimal distribution of the termite barrier treatment.
    3. Barrier application: Filling the system with the chosen termite barrier treatment, which may be a chemical termiticide or a physical barrier material.
    4. Backfilling: Covering the pipes with soil and compacting it to secure the system in place.

    It is highly recommended to hire a professional pest control company, like Tom’s Pest Control Perth, to handle the installation process.

    How Do I Refill A Termite Reticulation System?

    Refilling a termite reticulation system involves replenishing the termite barrier treatment within the pipes to maintain its effectiveness. This process should be carried out by a professional pest control company to ensure proper handling of chemicals and adherence to safety guidelines. The frequency of refills depends on factors such as the specific system, local termite activity, and environmental conditions. A professional can help you determine the appropriate refill schedule for your property.

    How Much Does It Cost To Install A Termite Reticulation System?

    The cost of installing a termite reticulation system varies depending on several factors, including the size of your property, the type of system chosen, and the complexity of the installation process. While the initial investment may be higher than traditional termite treatments, the long-term benefits of continuous protection can outweigh these costs. To get an accurate estimate for your specific situation, it is best to consult with a professional pest control company like Tom’s Pest Control Perth.

    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.
