1 in 3 homes will suffer a termite infestation this year. The cost of damage starts high, at an average of $10,000 per home. Yet, the cost can skyrocket to the millions on large multi-unit properties.
Thankfully, pre-construction termite protection, with expert application, can save you money and headaches down the road.
At Brisbane Termite and Pest Control, we know the importance of preventative methods. Builders rely on pest management services like ours to protect their investments.
We recently had the pleasure of working with Technical Manager Neville Hedge and Sales Manager Nathalie Clark of Greenzone Termite Management. We found that Greenzone is unmatched in its versatility and ease of use.

What Is Greenzone?
Greenzone combines bifenthrin (a common ingredient in termiticide) with polyethylene expansion foam. The extrusion process creates an effective, flexible foam termite barrier.
With Greenzone, the expansion foam necessary to prevent cracking now does double duty.
The manufacturing process ensures that the bifenthrin stays locked in the foam barrier. This way, it can’t enter the environment or deteriorate over time. Durability is the result.
Eco-conscious? Yes. Cost-effective? Double yes.
Nooks and Crannies Are No Match for Greenzone’s Adaptability
Greenzone termite barriers can be wrapped around or cut to fit any application. It’s perfect for tight spaces. Installing it is as easy as peeling off the backing and sticking to the desired surface.
Versatile applications include on, in, and around: control joints and penetration points. It also works around perimeter abutments.
Plus, its adhesive backing allows it to stick to wood, PVC, concrete, and more.
Greenzone allows us to provide the best pre-construction termite protection for our clients. They also offered the support we needed to be successful Greenzone vendors.
Pre-Construction Termite Protection Saves Time and Money
Greenzone eliminates the need for many specialized products on the truck. One product can tackle multiple areas.
Also, contractors can apply Greenzone during different stages of construction. This means all sites on a multi-unit property can be treated the same day.
The versatility we described cuts down on time and costs during installation. This reduces the amount of time each job takes.
The time saved for us meant that we could squeeze in last-minute requests. We were also able to provide more service to our clients.
Protect Your Investment
At Brisbane Termite and Pest Control, we know that the adage is true: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We also know how vital physical termite barriers are in preventing costly infestations.
The fact is, buildings without termite barriers are at risk of infestation. Likewise, builders without Greenzone Termite Management are at risk of wasting precious time and money. We are happy to say we have heard nothing but positive feedback from builders.
