There are two main termite management systems used to protect buildings from termite attack. One is the application of a toxic solution around and under your house, while another way is by installing monitoring traps outside each corner on the perimeter of your home for baiting purposes.
Once active termites have been eradicated from the building, to prevent further attacks in the future (or prevent an attack in the first place), it is necessary to install a termite management system to protect the building.
The most common termite treatment is soil treatment. They are applied to the ground and around buildings, in order to kill any active termites. These products contain a chemical that will either contact or prevent insects from coming into contact with it.
Treating soil around and under your building with insecticide can be an effective way of preventing these pests from getting inside your home for free access! A pest professional would dig trenches at least 50mm below the top of foundations so they're able to apply chemicals on all sides of structures without making physical connections between them (even if you live abroad).
When the soil is replaced, it should be mixed with insecticide to create a treated zone around your property. For those buildings that have sub-flooring, you need to treat all of the areas under your house such as perimeter walls and piers too.
It's important to realize that a treated zone is not a "termite barrier," it only prevents termites from entering your home while you have an inspection. If they do find any, then the treatment will need to be reapplied and inspected again in six months.
Soil treatments for termites are planned around structural aspects of your home (foundations) so that when termites make their way into the house undetected by building mud tubes around them before drilling through those barriers as well; this can be spotted during inspections for annual maintenance purposes - if there's anything wrong like signs of weakness or decay on structures near where ants were found outside earlier last year.
