Termite Barrier

Protect your home from termites today, install a termite barrier.  Australian Standards recommends every home should have a termite management system in place.  Termite management systems can be a physical barrier, chemical barrier or monitored bait system.  More information can be found on termite management systems on Queensland Building and Construction Commission site here.

Protecting your home from termites is one of the most important investments you can make.  If termites are located in your property, the experts at DedAnt can spot kill the termites and recommend a termite management system.   If your home contains any structural timber – like a timber frame, timber trusses in the roof, timber flooring or a deck – termites could eat it away until it collapses.

That’s why a relatively small investment in vital protection for your most important asset is so worthwhile. And why you should insist on the best treatment available.

The barrier is installed by an accredited technician generally around the perimeter of a building.  The barrier will last for 8 years and is installed with a warranty.  See more information on the warranty and product here.  DedAnt is an accredited Termidor installer.
