Termite Control

The goal is to establish a continuous insecticide barrier between the termite colony (usually in the soil) and wood in a building. Sometimes there may be a secondary termite colony above the soil (in the roof or other areas with a constant moisture supply) that requires additional treatment. Insecticide barriers may be established during or after building construction. In an existing building, termite treatments may involve any of the following procedures: a) mechanical alterations, and/or b) use of an insecticide to treat the soil, foundation and wood. In most cases, it is beyond the ability of an untrained person to attempt the termite treatment, unless it is a spot treatment or a person has work experience in this area.

Generally, termite treatment should be performed by professional pest control operators. Termite treatment requires special tools such as hammer drills, sub-slab injectors, rodding devices, engines equipped with pumps, protective equipment, etc.

Caution

  • Do not apply insecticides when soil is frozen or saturated with water. Frozen or saturated soil will not absorb insecticide uniformly.
  • Do not let humans and pets touch treated surfaces until surfaces are dry.
  • Before using insecticides for termite control, always READ, UNDERSTAND AND FOLLOW all label directions.
  • Keep all pesticides in original containers, out of reach of children and away from food, feed and water.
  • Do not plant food crops in treated soil.
  • Do not allow children and pets to play in treated soil.

We will treat your house or building by means of drilling and injecting for termites and will offer a 5 year service guarantee.

termite treat

We drill through the outside walls of the house or building, below the concrete floor level with 20mm drill bits which are ±1meter long until we reach the sand under the concrete floor. Thereafter we inject ±5-10liters of the termiticide into that soil.The holes we drill are approximately 1 meter apart, right around the house where possible. We then cement the holes closed.We also treat inside when necessary.

This procedure kills all termite activity under the house and prevents any future infestation as the sand under the house is poisoned. This termiticide cannot harm anyone as it is under the floor. Price for treating termites is dependent on the size of the house or building.

The service we provide comes with a service guarantee which means that if at anytime within the guaranteed period there is a re-infestation, the client can phone us and we will come out and re-treat the area free of charge.
