Termite Protection Plans


Termite Barrier systems mackay


The ultimate termite protection for your home is installation of a termite management system around your home by a licensed termite management specialist.

A termite management system is a chemical barrier installed around the perimeter (and any internal concrete slab joins) of your home, that physically terminates the termites as they pass through it.

There are many different termite management systems on the market, however our preferred systems are:
  • Termidor
  • Sentricon IG Stations

Contact Tropical Pest Control to discuss the best choice for your home.

Termites can’t detect Termidor (to termites it has no smell, colour or taste), so as they continue to forage through the soil into or around your home, they unknowingly come into contact with Termidor. So because termites cannot detect the chemical, they are not aware they are ingesting the product when they eat the timbers around your home.

Termites are social insects that live together in large colonies and feed and groom each other. Termidor s slow-acting in individual termites, which means that when they come into contact with Termidor, they will pass it on to others. Even secondarily affected termites can spread Termidor through feeding or contact, eventually effecting the whole population.

Termidor can last for up to 8 years around your home when installed correctly, unlike other chemicals that will last only 1, 2 or 5 years.
