While pre-treatment for termites is recommended for any new construction project, owners of existing homes or structures can’t control whether a proper termite pre-treatment was done in the past. That’s why a strategic post-construction termite treatment plan is essential in protecting your home, commercial building or other property.
Post-construction termite treatments include:
The soil of your home could be at risk if you have a termite infestation. A soil (sub-slab) treatment includes the application of termiticides below the foundation of the home in order to create a barrier between termite nests and a possible food source – like your home.
Applying termiticides directly to wood can help to eliminate any existing termite infestations, and help make the wood resistant to termites. If wood has already been significantly damaged by termites, it’s possible to inject the temiticide into the cavities within the wood to prevent future damage.
Baits and Monitoring Systems
Termite bait and monitoring systems work by reducing the size of the termite colony. Termite baits utilize slow-acting poisons in order to reduce or even eliminate the termite population in a given area.
Termite fumigation is perhaps the fastest and most effective way to treat a termite problem. Fumigation requires the tenting of a structure in order to keep the termiticide from harming surrounding people, plants or animals. Fumigation isn’t the easiest option, but is the most effecting, and Bug Emergency will work with you to ensure the process is as painless as possible.
When it comes to your home, commercial building or other property, your investment depends on your termite control strategy. Let Bug Emergency help you protect yourself –and your home – today.
