Termite Treatment becomes necessary once your house is attacked by these pests. It can cause serious structural damage to your house by hollowing the wood used in construction. Despite being horrible for looking they can also cause serious illnesses and damage in the wooden objects. Termite social insects that live in colonies with caste systems, which means they are organized into different social classes based on their roles and responsibilities. The termite caste system has three levels: Reproductive, workers, and soldiers. Since they live in dark places and many of them are blind, they communicate through pheromones (chemical signals) and vibrations caused by head-banging. The main sources of food for termites are wooden objects because they have the ability to digest wood. However, termites have protozoa and bacteria in their guts that produce enzymes that break down the cellulose in wood into sugars the termite can digest.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF TERMITE TREATMENTS?
Termite Treatment involve:
- Non-Chemical Treatments: Some ways to keep termites out do not involve the application of insecticides. For example:
One such method is a physical barrier, typically incorporated during construction.
Steel mesh and sands of particular sizes have been shown to perform effectively as physical barriers.
Biological control agents (nematodes and fungi) have demonstrated some success, particularly in laboratory settings.
Because these methods do not involve the application of an insecticide, EPA does not regulate them.
- Chemical Treatments:
Before a company can sell or distribute any pesticide in the United States, other than certain minimum risk pesticides, EPA must review studies on the pesticide to determine that it will not pose unreasonable risks to human health or the environment. Once we have made that determination, we will license or register that pesticide for use in strict accordance with label directions. The pesticides used for the prevention or treatment of termite infestations are called termiticides and must demonstrate the ability to provide structural protection before we register them. In most cases, termiticide application can only be properly performed by a trained pest management professional.
Approved Termite Treatment include:
- Liquid soil-applied termiticides.
- Termite baits.
- Building materials impregnated with termiticides.
- Wood treatments.
- Two common forms of treatment are conventional barrier treatments and termite baits.
Conventional Barrier Treatments
The most common technique for Termite Control infestations is the soil-applied barrier treatment. Termiticides used for barrier treatments must be specifically labeled for that use.
If conducted improperly, these treatments can cause contamination of the home and surrounding drinking water wells and will not protect against termites. For that reason, it is important to hire a pest management professional who is licensed and trained to take proper precautions.
TERMITE CONTROL STRATEGY
The pest controller arrives to inspect your house and investigate the problem and determine the extent and type of the insect infestation. At this point, you’ll be advised to leave the property (after giving it termite proofing) so that the Termite Control can take place.
- Drilling entire area of the ground floor in your property will be drilled at every 3 to 5 feet distance
- The hole will be 19mm in diameter and 18 inch deep
- Chemical mixture will be poured in each hole
- Then plugged with cement holes
Hemlock for Termite Control
Aforesaid Hemlock is a very efficient and lethal chemical used for the complete termination of termite. It is a very useful and the most efficient medicine utilized by termite control companies. It is extremely popular in the United Kingdom because of its efficiency and precision. This immense popularity leads to the export of Hemlock to other countries. There are numerous advantages of using Hemlock for treatment as it efficiently exterminates all kinds of bugs, termites, pesticides, and insects. The professionals from the Termite Control company will spray the hemlock on the targeted area and make it termite-free. It is environment-friendly, non-harmful towards humans.
