Since the introduction of environmentally
friendly termite agents and the removal of organochlorins
in 1995, Termguard has developed a range
of Termite Reticulated Systems to meet not only the needs
of the homeowner and building industry, but also the Environment.
Together with today’s
environmentally acceptable termite control agents, Termguard’s
termite reticulation systems have been the perfect partner
to provide an effective replenishable barrier, yet minimise
the total impact of the Environment.
The systems are based on providing a contained system of
termite control within the footprint of the house, and have
the capability to utilise new innovative termite control agents
that are developed in the future to protect the life of the
Our systems accurately distribute only the required amounts
of termite control agents into the underslab and perimeter
of the property. This method of chemical application
is the only approved method which allows a partial chemical
barrier to be used in conjunction with the slab built to Australian
Standards, which is certified by the Australian Building Codes
Furthermore, this technique will eliminate the need for open
air hand spraying; eradicate the risks of airborne exposure
of termite control agents to the public, workers and animals.
The risky and disruptive practice of drilling and injecting
slabs to overcome breaches into existing homes can also be
hazardous to both the pest controller and the householder.
This practice will also be eliminated as Termguard
systems are designed for judicious re-application of the termite
barrier without drilling and without any exposure to the applicator
or the residents of the house.
