& prevention for pre
& post construction
soil treatment is one of the most effective preventive methods against subterranean termites. a chemical barrier is created under the slab using a long lasting termiticide. this barrier prevents subterranean termites from entering a building even via “invisible” spaces such as those found around water and drain pipes. this method also prevents termites from building mud tunnels to reach wood floors, window sills and beam high above ground. a great advantage of soil treatment is the ease and thoroughness of chemical application. you get a continuing chemical barrier that effectively turns your property into a termite proof island surrounded beneath by termiticide. when properly applied, this long-lasting chemical barrier located underground poses no danger to children and pets.
slab injection is a post construction solution. it entails drilling holes along walls, beams, expansion joints and all possible points of termite entry. liquid termiticide is injected into the ground via these holes to create a continuous chemical barrier against subterranean termites. the holes are then sealed. when carried out by well-trained pest control operators, slab injection are extremely safe and pose no danger to children, pets or the environment.
