Environmental Care

Environmental CareSince 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 home.

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 Board.

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.
