Protection of buildings from subterranean termites — Prevention, detection and treatment of infestation
This Standard describes procedures for inspection and detection of termite activity and termite conducive conditions with a view to determining appropriate termite management options for a property. It is not intended for use in providing a pre-purchase inspection report for any timber pest. (The Standard for pre-purchase pest reports is AS 4349.3). It proposes methods for determining the extent of infestation, the treatment required and how to prevent infestation. It provides for both physical and chemical barriers which restrict the access of termites to timbers in either new or existing buildings. It gives details of notices and certificates to be used by builders and pest controllers, a code of practice for the safe use of termiticides, and a procedure for determining the level of chemical soil barriers.
