TERMITE CONTROL

Post construction termite control is the job carried out to an existing building, this job can be carried out as a proofing against termite or when termite activity is spotted within the premise.

This job is done by creating a termite barrier around the premises, a termite barrier works so effectively because it creates a chemical barrier around the entire perimeter of a home or building. Because all entry points are protected.

Treating termites before construction starts can help you defend against possible claims in the future as they frequently dwell where there is a high concentration of moisture and dampness.

Termite treatment in pre-construction stages includes several procedures that must be done to ensure an area of termite-free construction. Treating the soil before any slab placement with insecticides is the most common method of termite treatment. It will form a chemical barrier between the ground slab and masonry that will prevent the insects from approaching the building.

Termites prefer moist warm conditions in which they can thrive. Termites hide in the walls of our homes to feed and stay warm. Termites can be found in the home for these reasons. The warmth produced by the home itself makes for a perfect shelter to inhabit with moisture and food.

Subterranean termites

Subterranean termites

Subterranean termites live in the soil underground. This termite species prefers to eat soft, spring wood fiber, which means wood damaged by subterranean termites has a honeycombed appearance, with only the grain left behind. Unlike drywood termite colonies, subterranean termite colonies can contain thousands of workers.

Drywood Termites

Subterranean termites

Dry-wood tennites live in dry wood. Unlike many other termite species, they do not need contact with the soil to survive. This termite species can tolerate dry conditions for long periods of time, since it receives all of the moisture it needs from the wood it consumes and the metabolism it uses to digest the wood. Dry-wood termites commonly target the wood in your home's structural timbers, framing, furniture and hardwood flooring.

Formosan Termites

Subterranean termites

Formosan termites are the most destructive species of subterranean termite in the United States. Formosan termites may be distinguished from other subterranean termite species by their slightly larger size and yellowish brown bodies. While subterranean termites typically require soil contact to receive the moisture they need to survive, Formosan termites have the ability to form cartons to retain water for the colony until they can find a more permanent water source.
