In the Past new homes were protected from termites by protecting the soil underneath the building with organochlorine compounds. Although this method was effective in poisoning termites research has shown that other organisms including mammals have been harmed by these methods. Due to the risk to families & the environment, the use of these chemicals was banned in all Australian states and territories from July 1st 1995.
