termites

April 7, 2010 by  

Termite prevention is usually done during the construction of a building. Removing rotten wood or debris is important when building a structure. Pre treatments of cement footings can be performed immediately after pouring the footings. These treatments are not guarantees that termites will not appear but can be effective for several years. Repellants that don’t kill termites can be used as well as termidor which kills the whole colony. Termidor is more expensive than many other chemicals. Chemical barriers around the entire structure are necessary to ensure the protection of the entire building. Infested wood can be treated with properly labeled pesticides. Soil must be injected with chemical wherever possible. Cement must be drilled every foot to inject chemical under the cement.
