Termites Control

Residual Spraying

Residual spraying with termiticide which act as a stomach and contact poison is apply with a liquid dilution of Premise along the foundation walls of your home to create a continuous treatment zone

Drenching

Termite mound is destroyed by pouring solution of termiticide into the mound after breaking open the structure. To facilitate good penetration, holes are made using crowbars

Pre-Construction Treatment (Soil Treatment)

A traditional method for preventing subterranean termites from entering buildings within the first 5 to 10 years following construction . The objective of applying a termiticide to soil is to provide an unbroken chemical barrier between the wood in the structure and termite colonies in the soil .Thus, the insecticide must be applied thoroughly and uniformly to block all routes of termite entry .Effective termite control usually requires specialized equipment and often 150 or more gallons of prepared termiticide solution per house,depending on size, basement, etc .The most recent termiticides to be marketed are non-repellent to termites, but show delayed toxicity as termites forage through treated soil, which they do not avoid.As termites penetrate the treated zone, they contact the active ingredient, which causes delayed mortality and also possibly allows the termites to be overcome by lethal microbes.Furthermore, the toxicant is thought to be passed to nestmates through grooming activities and social food exchange (trophallaxis)

Post-Construction Treatment (Corrective Slab Treatment)

Holes are drilled along the perimeter of the building and termiticide will be pumped inThe objective of this is to establish a termiticide barrier to prevent termites from entering the structures .The distance between two holes is an extremely crucial factor to ensure a continuous chemical barrier beneath the house upon application . If the distance between the holes is too wide apart, a gap will be present and this will allow termites to move up into the house . Distance between two holes varies between 30 -65cm .Distance between hole to wall perimeter varies between 5-20cm

Baiting

A termite bait is usually a paper-, cardboard-, or sawdust-like material containing the active ingredient (or AI) that kills termites .The bait is kept inside a plastic bait station. As termites feed on the bait, the termite-killing AI gets into their bodies .The AI is spread through the colony as the termites feed each other. As more workers feed on the bait, more AI gets into the colony . Eventually the amount of AI in each termite increases until it kills them and the colony dies or is reduced.There are two types of bait stations: above-ground and in-ground . Above-ground stations are installed directly over shelter tubes or infested wood so that termites can begin to feed immediately on the bait .In-ground stations are placed in the soil .Most stations are cylindrical tubes with disk tops. The disks makes the stations easier to find and keeps them from sinking into the ground . The tubes have numerous holes or slits through which termites enter to get to the wood and bait inside
