Average termite barrier cost
The cost of installing a chemical termite barrier ranges from $1500 to $3500. The biggest factor in deciding the price is the size of your home. As the barrier stops termites at the ground level, the number of stories does not affect the cost.
Our technicians always perform a thorough inspection before beginning treatment to ensure that no termites are currently infesting your property. If you do have termites, our technicians will need to treat them before being able to create the barrier.
Why get a chemical termite barrier?
When termites damage your property, you likely won’t discover them until it’s too late. Termites cause millions of dollars worth of damage to Australian homes annually, and two-thirds of Australian homes will become infested with termites in their lifetime.
Termites enter your property through cracks in the walls and foundation, and eat the timber in your frames and walls. By using a chemical barrier, the termites are unable to enter your property and will try to find different sources of food.
How does it work?
There are a few different termite barrier products that our pest control technicians recommend. These include:
A non-repellent termiticide, Termidor is undetectable to termites. It kills on both contact and ingestion, so it will work regardless of whether or not the termites are feeding on it.
A repellent termiticide, Biflex is a synthesised compound based on the natural pesticide found in daisies. It is insoluble in water, meaning the barrier stays in place regardless of exposure to rain.
In some cases, your local pest control technician will recommend a baiting system. These work by luring the termites to termiticide that is extremely appetising to them. Most baiting systems work slowly and require regular monitoring.
