Incorporating Pest Barriers into the Building Envelope
1 HSW Credit Hour | AIA Course #: IPO07A
AIA Provider: Polyguard Products, Inc.
Presenter: Jill Heidorf
Course Description:
The building envelope has proven its value in controlling energy loss and moisture. But why not
design the envelope to also act as a pest barrier? Research beginning in 2000 has proven that
there are several materials which can block termites, insects, and other pests from entry to a
structure. A tested and proven insect barrier sealant with elastomeric properties can:
1. Seal off almost all pest entry points, and 2. Stretch over the myriad gaps, crevices, and cracks
which occur in all structures from differential movement of building components. By drastically
reducing the opportunity for pest entry, there can be a significant reduction in pesticides needed
to eliminate the pests.
Learning Objectives:
1.  Explain the amount of pretreatment pesticides currently in use.
2.  Describe the numerous ways pests enter structures.
3.  Explain the interactions between state pest control regulators and building code officials in new
     construction pest control considerations.
4.  Discuss several new materials and design alternatives to incorporate pest barriers into the
     building envelope.
5.  Explain three new levels of pest barriers, ranging from low to premium in cost, for specifiers to
     choose between.
6.  Discuss LEED credits applicable to the new material and design alternatives.

This Agenda is not a final schedule, and is subject to updates, additions and changes.
