How does Kordon work?
Kordon Termite Barriers are adaptable laminate that is installed during a building’s construction. These barriers prevent access to the property from subterranean termites. Kordon contains deltamethrin great at repelling termites.
Like bees and ants, Subterranean termites are sociable insects that live in large colonies. These pests will establish nests in the soil near ground level, in tree stumps or tree trunks. Termites consume the cellulose found in wood and timber products like paper.
Termites can travel significant distances to find food. Termite workers build underground tunnels and systems to reach cellulose materials.
Although termites love eating wood, they can also damage other materials like concrete, metal, plastic, building sealants & foam insulation. Termites can access buildings through tiny gaps and even pipes.
Kordon is installed in places termites are likely to attempt to gain access to a property. The deltamethrin chemicals in Kordon repel termites and they will avoid it. They will then search elsewhere away from your home or business.
If the termites try to get around the Kordon barrier, they will leave obvious mud tubes which can be detected during an inspection by a qualified Pest Inspector. From there, we can eliminate the termite colony before considerable damage is done.
Without a Kordon barrier, termites have easy access to your property. They will invade and evade detection for longer periods. This results in significant and expensive damage.
How long do Kordon barriers last?
CSIRO has conducted extensive tests on Kordon and it has been estimated to have a lifespan of over 50 years. This represents the life expectancy of a building as deemed by Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB).
Can it be installed in an existing building?
Kordon Barriers cannot be installed under existing buildings, although they can be added during an extension. The team at Canberra Pest Exterminators can give you more information about how it can be done or integrated.
