A physical barrier, such as Kordon, forces termites to show themselves as they are unable to access the house though gaps in the concrete slab – which are protected by the physical barrier. This causes the termites to either look elsewhere for their food, or they go around the physical barrier; this however forces them to go to the surface in order to get into the house.
When termites go above the surface of the ground, they create mud tunnels so as to keep their favoured environment – warm and humid. This will bring the termite colony to the attention of the inspector who will be able to provide recommendations regarding possible treatments.
Please contact us if you intend to install pathways, landscaping, alterations in the soil levels, verandahs or extensions within 300mm of the building prior to any work taking place so that we can offer you advice on how best to proceed as these alterations may affect your warranty.

Kordon is a physical termite barrier made of tough but flexible laminate – which can be moulded around unusual shapes – that contains a man made variation of a natural insecticide. It is an environmentally sensitive and allergen free barrier that offers long term termite defence that can be installed even where other defence types cannot due to environmental and constructional problems. The Kordon Termite Barrier is a uniquely Australian designed and manufactured product by Bayer CropScience for all building applications.
Kordon has been tested CSIRO and approved according to the Australian Standard.
