There are many subterranean termite control products available, and we recommend you use a non-repellent product to directly treat the nest. Using a product that is non-repellent (or not detectable) will allow the termites to pick up the product on their bodies and transfer it to other termites within the colony. Non-repellent products come in three formulations - concentrated liquids, aerosol sprays and ready to use foams. The formulation you choose is usually going to be based on the location of the infestation and also personal preference. If you need help choosing a product that will best fit your needs, please contact our team of pest control professionals.
Drilling into voids or wood: Drilling hole(s) may be required to gain access to the area where you suspect an infestation to apply the product of choice. You may need to drill into drywall to apply the product to a wall void or directly into infested wood to direct treat the termite gallery. When drilling into drywall, it is recommended that you drill holes about 18 inches up from the floor and in between each stud around the infested area. When drilling directly into wood it is recommended that you drill small holes every 3-4 inches until you find a spot where the drill bit does not meet resistance. This will indicate you have hit the termite gallery and the area where you should apply the product you have chosen. Apply termiticide: Apply the termiticide product directly into the drilled holes according to the product label. We recommend Taurus SC, or FUSE Foam. You can also use Termidor SC or Termidor Foam, but those are not as great of a value. non-repellent product as they can take up to 90 days to eliminate the existing termites. borate product such as Boracare to eliminate the current infestation and to protect wood against future infestations, you should perform the outdoor soil treatment first and wait 90 days before using the Boracare. Using the Boracare first can cause the outdoor colony to branch off in a different direction, which, in turn, can allow the termites to invade a new area of your structure. If you choose to use a concentrated non-repellent product it is important that you have a dedicated sprayer just for this use. If you use herbicides or other insecticides in the sprayer, you could leave behind a residue that could adversely affect the non-repellent properties of the concentrate. Treating houses during construction, when the foundation and the soil and/or gravel that forms the bed of future concrete slabs are exposed, is the best time to apply chemical protection against subterranean termites. The foundation block and the footing for the block or poured concrete wall are treated on the outside and inside. Sometimes the wood sill plate and joists for the flooring are treated (usually with a different insecticide treatment is called "pretreatment" or "preconstruction treatment" by pest control operators and is done routinely by professional companies. It will need scheduling in advance. There may be a second treatment when the foundation has been backfilled and the final soil grading has been made. If you need to get this treatment done for your new home, call the local Orkin Branch Office. An Orkin Termite Inspector will meet with you to discuss the protocols and timing of this treatment. termite prevention - pre-construction termite treatment Pre-Construction Termite Treatment building home and preventing termites. While it is nearly impossible to prevent anything from happening one hundred percent, pre-treating the area where your home is to be constructed or where an addition is to be built, can drastically increase your chances of remaining free of termites. The goal of pre-construction termite treatments is to form a chemical barrier in the ground that will keep subterranean termites from coming up from the soil to feed on the wood structures. Because the area to be treated is free of obstructions (such as a building), this type of treatment is less labor intensive, and requires less termiticide to be used, making the treatment less expensive than treating an existing structure. Another benefit of pre-treating is that the exterminator can cover every square inch of ground, creating a more secure barrier Soil treatment - Application of termiticide In order to properly treat for termites during pre-construction, the area will need to have termiticides applied several times at different stages. The exterminator will need to be in close contact with the builder in order to accurately arrange treatments. The design of the home and the type of soil it is being built upon may cause some variation in the application of the barrier. While methods can vary a bit depending on the building codes for the specific area, the first step for pre-construction termite treatment is usually to treat the slab. Once the land has been graded, the foundation form has been installed, and the footings have been dug, the area should be treated. This is usually done by treating with a termiticide barrier at a rate of one gallon of chemical solution per every ten square feet. When the footings have been poured, a mason will complete the foundation using blocks over the poured footings. As soon as this is done, the foundation will be backfilled with the surrounding soil. The plumbing pipes are laid, and more soil is added if necessary. It is at this time that the entire area is treated again with a termiticide barrier. Some extermination companies opt to skip the first treatment, and begin pre-construction treatments at this time. While termites cannot bore into or eat concrete, the slabs can crack with time creating perfect entry points for them. If the surrounding soil has not been treated, the termites can make their way to the slabs, through the cracks, and into the main structure. Final preconstruction treatment The final pre-construction treatment comes with the last grading, but prior to the landscaping. It is recommended that a trench be dug approximately four to six inches deep and at least twelve inches from the foundation out into the yard. Four gallons of termiticide is applied for every ten feet surrounding the home in a continuous spray After the home is complete, it is still a good idea to keep the protective barrier intact. This can be done by taking care not to disturb the soil surrounding the foundation in the twelve inch radius. If you plan to add a deck, porch, or other addition to the home, the protective barrier should be extended an additional twelve inches into the yard from the new structure Rodding treatment A more extensive pre-construction treatment can also be done in place of or in addition to the above mentioned spray method. This type of treatment is known as "rodding" and is carried out by injecting a permethrin based termiticide gel deep into the ground traditional spray methods only allow the termiticide to penetrate about one inch into the ground. Rodding uses a metal pole that ranges from four to six feet in length, and is filled with the termiticide. The top of the pole has a knob that keeps the pole pressurized. The pole is repeatedly pushed into and pulled out of the ground to remove the soil, leaving behind deep holes. This is done until a grid pattern of holes, approximately eighteen inches apart is formed. The holes are then injected with the termiticide gel in order to keep termites away from the area pre-construction treatment last pre-construction termite treatment can last anywhere from two to five years. Even though these treatments are quite effective, it is still recommended that inspect your home periodically for any damage or signs of termites. Also, try to keep the area surrounding the building free of residual wood or other cellulose based material, as these attract termites. This will ensure your structure is continually protected and will head off any potential infestations before they begin
