Termite Barriers

Termite Barriers


A termite barrier is a physical termite system or chemical application to prevent concealed entry by termites. The installation of a termite barrier will protect one of your biggest investments, your home. 

Termite protection

Gold Coast Pest Inspector,  Richard Eedy uses Exterra, the world’s number one termite protection system. With this system a series of stations are set up around you home. Using their patented Focus Termite Attractant they bring the termites to these stations. Here they are baited with Requiem Termite Bait.

This system creates what they call a Termite Interception Zone, an effective termite barrier around your home, attracting and killing termites as they enter your property. 

The Exterra system is easy for your pest inspector to maintain and monitor as each station allows bait to be added without disrupting the (now diminishing) termite colony.

Termite barrier installation is regulated by licensing

The installation  of a termite barrier must be completed by a contactor with a Termite Management – Chemical licence and Termite Management – Physical License (if a new build). A contractor must have one of these licences to provide advice or reports in relation to termite management systems or infestations. A QBCC licence is also required to install termite management systems in new building work. Before you do have any termite inspection done make sure your contractor is licensed. Richard is licenced and will comply with all regulations as stated by the Queensland Government.
Gold Coast Pest Inspector is part of QBCC

What Makes This Kind Of Termite Barrier So Effective

The Exterra system if the only termite barrier solution that will destroy the colony.

This colony may be located next door, or in bushland nearby. It’s not unusual for the colony to be located nearby and commute to your house for lunch. If you don’t destroy the colony then your home is always under threat. By attracting termites to the feeding station, and then allowing them to take the Requiem bait back with them, we can kill the queen and destroy the colony.  Only Exterra does this.

For a really clear description of how this system works, watch the video below.

Why Our Termite Barrier System Is More Effective Than Others

You might have seen the termite barrier systems that rely on drilling holes around your home and filling them with chemicals. That is the standard barrier system alternative to the one we use. First up, it doesn’t take a genius to realise that filling the soil around your home with chemicals isn’t a great idea for your family’s health. Also, what happens if a termite sneaks through the system? These systems use no attractants and they do not destroy the colony. If a termite sneaks pas the system then they’re now safe within the confines of your home. Which is filled with loads of yummy termite food.

    Honestly the best in the business. I’ve had to deal with a lot of “commercial” pest controllers in my workplace and I have found someone who takes pride in their work a lot more than any of the big pest companies. I’m really appreciative of Richards continual service for us and general knowledge.
    If your looking for anyone to do your pest controls for your home, this is the man for you!

    We were referred by an experienced builder to Gold Coast Pest Inspector as the best service available in terms of expertise and professionalism, which after 5 years of regular service is still the case today.
    There are hundreds of inexperienced operators advertising their services for us to have inadvertently selected, which is why we are so happy to have found such a highly experienced, genuinely professional and effective pest control service of most excellent value and as such would highly recommend to anyone not wanting to leave their home pest control to chance.

Regular termite and pest inspections.

A regular inspection will identify the entry points of termites, whether they originate from a nest below the ground or a nest in nearby wood and wood products.

There are other termite barrier systems that are effective,  however, ideally they will be combined with a chemical termite barrier like Exterra for the most efficient and long term results.
