Physical Termite Barriers

If you are in the process of constructing a new home or working on protecting an existing home from infestations, one of the most common things homeowners would consider is installing physical termite barriers.

Subterranean termites, one of the most common types of termites infesting structures, are building their colonies around a structure or within soil beneath, and emerge to feed on other cellulose materials and wood. Using physical termite barriers can be used to avoid these infestations.

Actually, these barriers come in two forms, chemically treated soil or physical and chemical termite barrier, which is a layer of protection that is between the home and the soil. Most of the time, they are made out of materials that are made to give termites hard time accessing homes, most of the time stainless steel mesh.

For the protection of pests in the soil, the systems commonly used are both concrete slab underneath and using a physical termite barrier. Overall,  these termite barriers are made to protect and preserve the foundation of a structure, whilst those non-chemically treated will not kill those termites in the soil that are near your area or home per se, they should slow down termites from accessing your home.

On the other hand, this form is considered not 100% effective as termites have their way breaching these preventive systems. Therefore, contacting the professionals should be done.
