How long does a termite barrier or treatment last and is it worth it?

When you want to protect your property, one of the key questions that will come up is ‘how long does a termite barrier or treatment last?’

It’s worth knowing exactly what a termite treatment or barrier can do, how long it takes to put in place and weigh up the cost from there.

There’s no use wondering or sitting there thinking for too long because termites aren’t going to wait for you to make up your mind how to deal with them.

Protecting your place is a matter of urgency and the earlier you act, the better the result.

How long does a termite barrier or treatment last? With experts who are able to do a fully professional job, you will know that your protection will last for years to come.

What damage can termites do?

Termites are one of the most destructive pests around. A swarm of around 2 million active termites can do significant damage to a home or building in just a few months, especially if the conditions are favourable.

It’s pretty obvious that you need to act as soon as possible.

There is no point waiting around when these pests are eating their way through your place.

If termites are already at work, you need to have professionals on the job to undertake the specialised task of getting rid of the termite colony. The story isn’t over then.

Protection against a return of a termite attack needs to be undertaken. This is not something that can be done overnight, it takes time and expert skills to do it properly.

Of course a job like that is not a cheap fix, especially when you are paying for a skilled specialist. The important thing to remember is that you will be saving yourself a huge bill for the cost of repairs and all the headaches and heartache that comes with termite damage.

Structural damage to a property is not always easy to assess and never simple to repair. Don’t leave yourself open to the problems of termite attack when it is possible to protect your place with help from trained professionals.

Identifying the termite problem

It would be great to know that you could buy a simple pest spray or try a DIY method that would rid your place of termites, but it’s just not possible. Don’t fall for tricks from unscrupulous operators or fall into the trap of believing in a home-made remedy you might find on the internet.

You need a pest control expert who can take you through the various methods of termite control and which treatment will work best for you. There are different types of termites or white ants around, so it’s important to identify the specific kind of termite in your area.

A true professional in termite management will make sure they have identified the type of termite before any termite treatment is started.

Always make sure you ask your pest controller if they are using government approved methods and products. It is your safety that’s on the line.

A new home build needs termite protection

If you are building a new home, you should know that that the National Building Code requires all new homes to be protected with a termite management system or they should be built with termite resistant materials.

If you’re wondering how long does a termite barrier or treatment last, it all depends on the barrier or treatment involved. Some last up to 8 to 10 years.

Then there’s the Green Zone accredited termite protection that lasts for 50 years – yes a full 50!

That’s the sort of protection that you need and your place deserves.
