Post Construction Termite Treatment
Post Construction Termite treatment includes ground nesting of the already constructed houses or commercial buildings. A main procedure of this post construction anti-treatment includes keeping a constant check within the duration of the warranty period provided. In this process, injecting of the effective pesticide into the layer of the ground wooden flooring and filling up the crevices with white cement is done. This strong layer of chemicals which is enemy of termite, provides the barrier for the termites thus making it impossible for them to traverse. Also, the wooden doors, windows and flooring are spewed with the chemicals to make them 100% termite proof.
Post Construction Termite Treatment
- Make sure water drains away from your house
- Don’t let water build up around your home's foundation. Termites like that!
- Replace any damp or damaged wood on the outside of your home
- Never leave wood scraps in the yard for them to snack on
- Inspect your home for signs of termites, such as bubbling paints, mud tubes and wood sounds
- Seal all cracks and crevices around the outside of your home
Termites cause billions of dollars in damage each year. They primarily feed on wood, but also damage paper, books, insulation, and even swimming pool liners and filtration systems. Termites can injure living trees and shrubs, but more often are a secondary invader of woody plants already in decline. While buildings may become infested at any time, termites are of particular importance when buying or selling a home since a termite inspection/infestation report is normally a condition of sale. Besides the monetary impact, thousands of winged termites emerging inside one's home are an emotionally trying experience — not to mention the thought of termites silently feasting on one's largest investment.
- All termites are social insects and raise their young as a group
- The total weight of all of the termites in the world is more than the weight of all the humans in the world
- Termite colonies eat non-stop, 24 hours a day, seven days a week!
- Termites have wings that they shed once they have found a good place to build a nest
Mainly Termites are of two types:
- Ground nesting Termites: Ground nesting termite are responsible for damage of building and its beautiful structure
- Wood nesting Termites: Wood nesting eats wood in house such as furniture, wooden fence, almirah, chairs, wooden stairs, etc
Silent destroyers:Termites are known as "silent destroyers" because of their ability to chew through wood, flooring and even wallpaper undetected.
For Inside Premises
Firstly, the inside premises is drilled with 12mm diameter drill having 6 inch length, the drilling is done up to depth of 4 to 5 inches. Then the drilled holes are filled with anti termite control chemicals and the holes are sealed completely with cement. Then the muddy channels which are made by termite are sprayed here and there to kill the live termite inside the muddy channel and lastly the channels are removed and the tiny holes from where the termites enters in to the premises are fully injected with the anti termite control chemical.
For Outside Premises
First of all, the outside walls of the building and columns are drilled with the drill bit having lenght of 12 inch and diameter of 12 mm up to the depth of 1 ft. If the building is stilt plus, then the side corners of the columns are drilled in the same way and the holes are filled with anti termite control chemicals. If the mud tubes are discovered, then those channels are treated with anti termite chemical and removed fully. All the stair cases, passage areas and other common portions are drilled and completely filled with anti termite control chemicals and finally sealed with cement. After initial drilling procedure is done, check the service quarterly.
