Protect Your New Home From Termites

Three measures to keep termites out of your new home

Termites are the silent destroyers of homes and have an incredible work ethic. They work 24 hours a day. Seven days a week, for years on end, building their colonies.

They are driven to devour cellulose, a molecule found in deadwood. Naturally, this makes termites want to feast on the abundance of timber found within your home.

As a result, termites attack and severely damage one in five Australian homes every year and on average, they deliver $10,000 worth of damage to unsuspecting homeowners.

Termites have a significant presence throughout mainland Australia, with most coastal Australian cities having a very high termite concentration.

So, how do you protect your new home from these hungry pests?


Home insurance is out of the question. Unlike storms or fires, termite damage can be actively avoided. Over the past decades, numerous measures have been developed to deter termites from entering homes.

Three main measures combine to form what is called a termite management plan. Your plan will help ensure your new home has complete protection from termites. 

A robust termite management plan involves:

  • Installation of a termite management system
  • Undertaking regular termite inspections
  • Elimination of any conditions that make your home attractive to termites

Selecting the correct termite management system for your new home is arguably the most important of these measures, as it will determine what you must do for the other two measures.

Selecting a termite management system starts with your home builder. They will specify their preferred system as a standard inclusion.

However, it’s important to keep in mind:


  • Your builder’s standard inclusion for a termite management system can be changed for another option
  • Each system has pros and cons, and 
  • You should choose a termite management system that suits your specific requirements

Choosing a termite management system you are comfortable with is very important, as once your home is complete, you won’t be able to change it.

You have several options to choose from, each with pros and cons to consider and depending on which state or territory you are building in, some options won’t be available. 

To ensure you have complete confidence that your home is protected from termites, research your available options and make an informed decision.

Once-off installation and no retreatments, ever!

Termimesh is a once-off installation completed through your home builder by an accredited Termimesh technician. We install Termimesh along the outer perimeter of your home and secure Termimesh collars around pipes coming through your concrete slab.

Once Termimesh is installed, you will never require a retreatment. This saves homeowners thousands of dollars, countless hours of time and eliminates any worry of termites destroying your home.

No harmful chemicals, ever!

Having no retreatments means that you will have no exposure to harmful chemicals.

Chemical termite barrier systems require technicians to reapply termiticide poisons every few years to ensure your home is fully protected.

These harmful chemicals contaminate your ground soil, which is terrible for the environment and your family’s well-being and missing a single retreatment could put your home in jeopardy.
