Re: Termite Barrier visible2

I'm pretty sure it has to be visible, because if you cover it up with something like mortar then the termites have got something to use as a bridge over the barrier!
However … and maybe someone more knowledgeable than I can comment … that bottom photo looks to me as though there's a big hole in the barrier? It doesn't look right to me.
Also in the other two shots it looks like it's at the same level as the concrete (I think it's the little flash of blue at the bottom of the wall?) whereas I thought the termite barrier was supposed to be at least a little bit above ground level?
