There are other similar products on the market to Homeguard i.e Kordon but we have chosen to use Homeguard for many reasons. Homeguard is classified as a termite barrier in a non-soil matrix. In basic terms it is a plastic sheet and collar product that has Biflex impregnated through it. This means that if termites go close to it they are repelled and if they come in contact with it they die. It can also be used as a damp proof course (D.P.C.) It is non-sensitizing which means that there is no adverse effect to the installer or trades people working near it, which is often the case with other similar products. There is no odour at all and it will last, in most cases, the life of the building. As was the case with the reticulation system, there is a lot more preparation required than a hand spray so prior arrangements are required for this product. The cost is far outweighed against the long term benefits of using this product.
