Termites, often mistakenly called “white ants”, are known for their destructive effects on wood structures and construction. Through our integrated Termite control service, we provide Pre-Construction and Post-Construction service against Subterranean (ground nesting) termites to suit your specific needs.
Most termite damage is caused by subterranean termites, members of the family Rhinotermitidae. Subterranean termite nests usually contact the soil, thus the name subterranean (meaning underground, or beneath the soil surface). Among these ground-dwelling termites, the most common structural pests are the eastern, western, and Formosan subterranean termites. Other termites that cause structural damage include the drywood termites and the dampwood termites.
If you suspect you have a termite problem, your first step is to confirm that the pests are, indeed, termites.
People often confuse ants and termites. Both insects live in social colonies and may take up residence in or near your home. Knowing how to identify ants and termites will help you decide when to call the exterminator. While they appear similar at first, a closer look reveals some distinct differences.
Post Construction Anti-Termite Treatment (For Existing Buildings)
If there is loose soil around the walls of your building, we dig a shovel width trench close to the external wall of the building exposing the foundation wall surface upto a depth of 50cm.
If there exists a concrete cover or masonry apron around the walls of your building, holes are drilled as close as possible to the plinth wall about 300mm (1ft) apart from each other. Insecticide is then poured, so that it reaches the soil to eliminate the termites present there and to stop them from re-infesting. If your building is on pillars, the holes are drilled around the pillars and insecticide poured into the soil.
Wooden portions of the building are treated:
Further, on all floors, wood-work like doors and windows, which are highly susceptible to termite attack are also protected by treatment. Spot treatment of spraying on infested areas in the walls and ceiling is also carried out.
Pre-Construction Anti Termite Treatment
If you are planning to build a house or develop your property for building your office, termite control is the first thing you should think of.
We use highly professional and advanced techniques for treating the termite infestation problem. Direct liquid treatments are applied to the outside, inside and also in the foundation to eliminate the termites completely. Direct injection of liquid pesticide (termiticide) in areas like the foundation, within the foundation walls and also areas under the concrete slabs is part of our specialized termite control treatment plan.
Pre-Construction Termite Treatment Stages:
We treat the sides and bottom surface of the foundation trenches and pits with chemical to a height of about 30cm at the rate of 5 Lit. per square meter of surface area.
Backfill earth on each side of all built up walls, which will be in immediate contact with the foundation, should be treated with chemical at the rate of 7.5Lit. per linear meter of vertical surface of the substructure, to a depth of 45cm and width of 15cm. The chemical shall be directed towards the masonry surfaces so that earth in contact with these surfaces is well treated with the chemical.
Before laying the floor, treat the top surface of the consolidated earth within the plinth walls with chemical at the rate of 5lit. per square meter.
Ensure back fill against foundation is treated to its full depth.
Builders should take care that any disruption of the barrier during later construction work (e.g. creation of gardens over the treated barrier), may lead to untreated gaps.
