Termite Pre-treatment is the application of termiticide to the soil prior to slab pouring and construction, including the soil around additions and/or new unattached structures. Pre-treatment creates a barrier which keeps out subterranean termites. It is recommended that ALL new construction, including remodels and additions have the soil treated for termites before the slab is poured.
For all new construction termite pretreatment projects – both residential and commercial – we use a premium long-lasting preconstruction soil termiticide.
G.O. PEST CONTROL SERVICES offers a five year warranty on all pre-treatments. The five year warranty can be renewed on an annual basis following the initial five year warranty period.
Post construction Treatment
Once a termite infestation has occurred, prevention is no longer enough, and more action must be taken to prevent damage. A variety of chemical treatments exist to correct the problem.
A complete post construction treatment usually takes a day, and access to the inside of your home would be minimal, if required at all. Drilling of holes measuring ½ inch in diameter approximately 3 inches from any wall that has concrete slab attached to your structure. These holes are 12 inches apart, and 18” deep. This allows termiticide to be applied in a continuous barrier below concrete driveways, walks, patios and garages. The same is done for the inside of the structure and sometimes foam termiticide products are sometimes utilized inside wall voids to enhance the treatment.
Excavation is done along any walls that have soil next to them. This trench is no more than 6 inches wide. Termiticide is applied to the trenches to create a continuous barrier of treated soil all the way around the structure. This will ensure that any foraging termites will have to encounter treated soil before making entry into your home or business. All holes will be patched and all trenches covered over with treated soil.
Using a professional pest control service to prevent and control termite infestations is the most convenient and guaranteed ways to preserve the value of your home.
