The termite management industry is guided by the Australian Standards AS. 3660 1-2014 New Constructions and AS. 3660.2-2000 Existing Buildings. The Building Code Australia calls up the Australian Standards as a minimum treatment guideline. Councils in designated termite areas require termite treatment and certification to these Australian Standards. The Standards set out requirements for the design and construction of subterranean termite management systems for new and existing buildings. They include both physical termite barriers (Homeguard Blue TMB, HomeGuard Collars etc.) and chemical termite barriers (Biflex etc.).

Exopest offers a range of termite treatments for new and existing buildings. These include physical termite barriers and chemical soil treatments. Physical barriers are permanent (25 yrs), while chemical soil treatments have a finite lifespan. Both have their place in the tools of termite management, but some are more suited to one project than another.

Chemical soil treatments (spraying) are usually referred to as chemical barriers because they stop or impede termites coming up through the soil and entering the structure. Some chemical treatments (Premise 200SC, Altriset or Termidor) allow termites to pass through the treated soil and pick up the chemical whilst others deter or repel foraging termites (Biflex).

Physical termite barriers are incorporated in the structure of the building and stop termite entry. Ant caps were first designed as termite barriers, but termites simply build mud tunnels over and around the ant cap. First generation physical barriers include termimesh and granitgard, and then came a physical barrier (Kordon) incorporating an insecticide deltamethrin. The latest physical termite barrier in Australia is HomeGuard made by FMC in Queensland. HomeGuard stops repels and kills termites. It is a single sheet polymer designed to last the life of the building.

69348-HomeGuard Logo-CMYK_PTMHomeGuard physically restricts termites from entering the building, but also actively repels and kills them. HomeGuard is available in many forms:

  • HomeGuard TMB (0.2 mm) full under-slab
  • HomeGuard Blue (0.3 mm) perimeter slab installation and slab joins
  • HomeGuard Blue Collars for slab penetrations
  • HomeGuard GT Granules – perimeter cavity and penetrations

Biflex (bifenthrin, a synthetic pyrethroid) is incorporated in the plastic polymer matrix of all three forms. As a polymer the Biflex is locked in for the life of the product and does not leach out into the environment. It has APVMA approval, BCA and CSIRO certification.
HomeGuard is Australian made and backed by the FMC 25 yr warranty – Conditions apply.
