Every year, termites cause more damage to Australian homes than floods, fires and storms combined.

At least one in five homes are affected and the cost of repairs regularly runs into thousands of dollars. Even more disturbing is that the destruction (and expense) termites cause is not covered by normal household insurance.

So whether you’re planning to put up a new home or renovate an existing one, it’s vital that you comply with compulsory building regulations and invest in protecting your most important asset. Because wherever there is timber there are termites looking for their next meal.

For cost-effective, long term protection, you can’t go past having a Bayer Kordon® Termite System installed.

Bayer Kordon® Termite System is more than just termite proof

Many termite protection products act solely as a physical barrier, allowing the foraging insects to search up and down their length until they find a gap or weakness to enter through.

Bayer Kordon® Termite System contains deltamethrin, a synthetic derivative of naturally occurring pyrethrum. Insects are naturally averse to deltamethrin and, given the choice, will not go near it. Repeated trials have shown that as soon as termites even get near the Bayer Kordon® Termite System they turn and go elsewhere for their food.

What is Bayer Kordon® Termite System made of?

Bayer Kordon® Termite System comprises polyester webbing containing deltamethrin, a synthetic pyrethroid and laminated between two UV stable low-density polyethylene plastic sheets.

How does Bayer Kordon® Termite System work?

Bayer Kordon® Termite System is a flexible laminate that is installed in the building during the construction process to prevent concealed access by subterranean termites.  Bayer Kordon® Termite System contains deltamethrin which is highly repellent to termites.

Subterranean termites (termites) are social insects that live in a colony like bees and ants. Typically they form a nest in the soil or near ground level in a stump or trunk of a tree. They eat cellulose which is found in timber and timber products such as paper. Attack by termites originates from the nest. Foraging termites will seek cellulose up to 50 m or more from their nest. Wood or timber lying or buried is reached by underground tunnels built by the termite workers. Timber above ground may be reached inside the timber or via mud walled tubes plastered to exposed surfaces. These tubes are built by the termites to shelter them from the light and maintain humidity. There are more than 350 species in Australia and about 30 are classified as economically important – that is they attack timber in buildings.

As well as eating timber, termites can damage non-cellulose materials such as soft concrete, soft metal and plastic, building sealants and foam insulation.

Cracks in concrete and the gap around pipes penetrating through the concrete slab offer easy access to termites. Kordon is installed where termites may attempt to gain access to the timber in a building. The deltamethrin in Kordon is highly repellent to termites and they will avoid close contact with it. Where Kordon is installed the termites will seek cellulose elsewhere or seek to go around the Kordon. When seeking to go around the Kordon the termites will build their mud tubes which will be detected during an inspection by a suitably qualified Timber Pest Inspector.  Steps can then be taken to eliminate the termite colony before significant damage can be done. When termites get concealed access, such as when Kordon is not installed, access is gained for a long period resulting in significant and expensive damage.
