TERMITES

♦ TERMITE TREATMENTS  Termite treatments are most often done by applying termiticide directly into the soil. To start a termite treatment first a trench must be made 2 inches deep by 4 inches wide. Anywhere where there is concrete against the house the concrete must be drilled every eighteen inches. after these steps the home should be prepared for injection of termiticide.

♦ SUBTERRANEAN TERMITES, DRY-WOOD, AND FORMOSAN TERMITES  Dry-wood and Formosan termites are more involved for the treatment process because they do not involve soil contact, dry-wood and Formosan termites live off of wood and house structures often without a moisture source making identifying their location complicated at times. There are quite a few ways to treat for dry-wood and Formosan termites however most effective method is fumigation. Fumigation is the procedure in which a company is contracted into tenting a house, evacuating the inhabitants and gassing the entire structure with chemicals that contain little to no residual making re-entry into the home possible after just a couple of days.
