Will my termite barrier be effective after all this rain?
The recent heavy rainfall and extreme weather has made for a termite paradise. Termites increase their population based on a number of factors including access to moisture and food. After heavy rainfall, moisture lingers in the soil for some time after the rain has ceased and in a flood or major wetting event, logs and scrap timber are moved by flood waters and often left buried in land fill or stacked in a pile adding to the available food source, which can sustain large subterranean termite colonies.
We’re often asked by clients considering installing chemical barriers to protect their homes how long a chemical barrier lasts and whether rain affects the barrier. A chemical barrier protects your home for five years and is resistant to environmental factors like rain. The key to the suitability of any termiticide in a moist environment (like Brisbane) is the propensity to leach through soil upon a wetting event. Termidor has very low water solubility and does not leach through the soil. Termidor binds to organic matter in the soil which also limits movement.
So YES, a Termidor chemical barrier will protect your h
ome from termites for five years after a heavy onset of rain.
