Termite Barriers are a necessary preventive measure when living in Queensland. It is one of the cheapest forms of insurance you can have for your home in providing security for your family against termite attack.
What is a perimeter treated zone (termite barrier)?
Perimeter treated zones (barriers) are a form of termite protection that goes around the perimeter of your home to heavily reduce the chance of termites gaining concealed access into your greatest asset, your home. You can have a partial or full install and your Certified Timber Pest Inspector will provide you with a full quote broken down into options for your consideration.
On the day of installation our qualified experts will dig down and expose the footings surrounding the dwelling of the soil areas. They will then replace the removed soil, if necessary, then treat the soil with the selected chemical and fill the excavated area back to ground level.
Concreted areas will be drilled with a 12mm drill bit at centres of between 200mm and 400mm (depending on which chemical is selected). The holes will then be filled with the selected chemical treatment then a neat looking plug will be inserted into the drilled holes.
The two main options for a protection of an existing home are home are:
- Chemical Perimeter Treated Zone
- Bait & Monitor System
Can I combine the Chemical & Bait & Monitor Systems?
The unique advantage of Trelona ATBS is that it can be used in combination with Termidor Residual termiticide and insecticide and Termidor HE high-efficiency termiticide. Termidor has been the most trusted name in termite control since 2002 and has been the benchmark for termiticides in the Australian market. This trusted technology can now be combined with the most advanced baiting system possible.
Due to termite risk or construction design, a combined treatment may provide the most adequate and thorough protection for your home. Where required or in instances where additional “piece of mind” is desired, your pest management professional may design a treatment plan combining the power of these two trusted technologies.
One of our qualified and certified Termite Inspectors will provide a free on-site quote to determine what remedial steps may be required and the most appropriate installation and management plan for your home and circumstances for you to consider.

It’s like playing Russian Roulette. It’s not a matter of if termites will get in but when.
