Homeguard Termite Barrier
Get rid of termites once and for all!
Termite infestations are both a big reality and catastrophe all over the world, but more so in Australia.
While one in every three houses is prone to a termite attack, the costs that houses have borne for fixing structural damage amount to more than $140 million per year. And that's not even the biggest blow!
This cost excludes the removal of the termite infestation and protecting your house from a future attack. These statistics make it all the more necessary for you to have a termite barrier system and treatment in place that will ensure you against such damage.
HomeGuard Can Help!
Most chemical barrier treatments claim to be effective but raise concerns on any side-effects that they can have on the health of your family and pets. Plus, there's always the question of how hazardous they are to the environment. Then again, physical barriers only claim to seal up entry points leaving you with the thought of whether termites continue to encircle your property.
Does this mean you continue to live with the threat? No! HomeGuard combines the best of both these solutions to give you a termite treatment that is almost unbeatable.
While termite bait stations, physical barrier systems, and chemical treatments are among the various options you have to choose from, when safeguarding your building construction from termites, there are some very strong reasons for you to opt for HomeGuard instead.
HomeGuard is a flexible building product that can quickly and easily adapt to unusual shapes, fit into joins and crevices, while offering you an eco-friendly defence system that will last up to 50 years!
That's right! It is a single sheet membrane that replaces the moisture membrane in constructions. This physical-chemical termite barrier is the first of its kind non-soil matrix that immediately blocks, repels, and kills termites that come in contact with it.
Installing The HomeGuard System
Preferably HomeGuard should be installed at the time of a new construction. However, existing constructions can also benefit from it. It is sealed into the core and foundation of the building to ensure permanence.
The installation process is safe and easy. Additionally, the material used will not cut or sensitize. It is lightweight, non-allergenic while also being odor-less, making it an easy blend into your building's construction.
Post installation, a qualified pest manager, preferably from the same pest control company, will need to inspect the building or property, once, every year.
How does HomeGuard Actually Work?
Being manufactured in Australia, the HomeGuard physical and chemical barrier system consists of polymer-based products that include FMC's one of the leading liquid termite barrier, Biflex.
The effectiveness of Biflex has been proven and is also the reason behind the protection of 1+ million households in Australia. Obtained from the pyrethrum daisy, Biflex is a synthetic pyrethroid and sourced from nature.
While this enables it to be highly effective against insects and termites, in particular, it also implies how it does not have any ill-effects on the vegetation or life in and around your building and property.
