Effective Termite Prevention
Termites cause more than a billion dollars in property damage each year in America. A single termite colony can consume the equivalent of a 2×4 plank of wood. This may not sound that destructive until you consider that piece of wood could be the support beam for a load-bearing wall.
Termimesh is made of high-grade stainless steel, which makes it very resistant to the elements and unlikely to need repair or replacement. It is also covered by an extensive manufacturer’s guarantee, and has a proven track record of 100% effectiveness.
We are happy to perform routine inspections of your home for termites or other wood eating pests. However, the Termimesh system is so effective you can rest easy knowing it’s there.
What is Termimesh?
Preventing termites with Termimesh means focusing on the areas where termites will try to enter your home. Termimesh is a non-chemical, permanent barrier that is used in key areas in the home’s slab. It’s essentially a non-corrosive, ultramarine-grade stainless steel barrier to keep termites out.
Termites colonize in the soil and enter buildings through only 1/64th of an inch that come into contact with soil.
During the construction phase, ABC can install Termimesh around service wires and pipes connecting to your home which is then sealed inside concrete, ensuring that termites cannot enter.
Keep Your Home Termite Free
There are a number of methods for preventing termites from ever getting a foothold on your property well after Termimesh has been installed. These solutions include:
- Fixing any leaks or plumbing problems since termites are attracted to wood and moisture
- Adding periodic termite inspections as part of your regular pest control services
- Scheduling a standalone termite inspection of your property by a trained termite prevention specialist

Termimesh is a high-quality stainless steel mesh used to block termites from entering homes through commonly-used access points, and has a track record of being 100% effective. It was developed by a company in Australia, where it has been in use for over twenty years.
Termimesh requires a one-time installation during home construction. Our specialists will identify likely access points in your new home and install Termimesh in those areas.
The mesh is flexible, and can be shaped to fit into all sorts of areas of your foundation. This includes cold joints in the concrete, control and expansion joints, wall junctions, and areas where pipes pass through the concrete.
How do you install the system?
During construction of a new home, the mesh is placed at all known access points termites use to invade the wood structures of homes.
Is it friendly for pets and children?
Termimesh is a completely non-toxic steel mesh installed into the foundations of your home. While it is unlikely that children or pets will come in contact with it, it has no chemical properties that can cause harm.
