How You Can Help To Ensure Your Home Remains Safe:

 
  • Always follow the guidelines and recommendations issued by your builder and Termite Engineer. The guidelines provided are designed to ensure maximum protection.
  • Natraspray’s perimeter always active baiting system is essential for protecting your home. If you do not have perimeter protection, your home is open to termite attack. Any termite protection program can be rendered ineffective if building alterations or additions are made. The construction of pergolas, awnings, verandas, for example can provide a route of entry into the protected property.
  • With concrete slab homes it is important that you ensure that the edge of the slab and the weep holes in between the bricks are left exposed. By building up gardens or soil levels over the edge of the slab, termites can gain undetected entry into your home and breach the established barriers.
  • With suspended floor homes any material that may be conducive to termite infestation, including any form-work, timber, tree stumps and similar materials must be kept out of the subfloor and away from the external walls of your home.
  • Ensure that termite shielding is not damaged or breached in any way (metal strips around the foundation). Termite shields do not prevent termite entry. They do force termites out into the open so as they can be detected by regular inspection.
  • Ensure leaking taps, showers and pipes under the home or adjacent to it are immediately repaired in order to reduce moisture levels in the sub floor.
  • Ensure that vents to sub-floor areas are never blocked. These keep the subfloor dry so termites are not attracted to the area.
  • Do not use untreated timbers to form garden beds or retaining walls, as these will attract termites.
  • If you intend to make changes that may affect the protection of your home, as mentioned above, get in touch with Natraspray’s qualified Termite Technicians to discuss your protection level.
