Termite Shield

Definition of "Termite shield"

Aluminum or metal treated barrier that is placed between the concrete and wood of the foundation of a newly constructed building to prevent termites from infesting the wood. Many experts say that such a shield is ineffective because the termites simply go around the shield to get to the wood in the foundation.
