Soil Treatment against Termites
The application of liquid termiticide to soil has been the mainstay of subterranean termite control since the early 1900s. The objective of such treatments has been to create a continuous chemical barrier that excludes termites in the ground from entering the buildings.
PRE Construction Termite Treatment
INTRODUCTION :- The most effective and economical time to apply a liquid termiticide is while the building is under construction. Pre-construction treatment allows the application of termiticide precisely in the areas where it is needed. Exposed soil can be accessed and thoroughly treated before the slabs are poured, floors are fitted, foundations are completed and substructures are erected.
A proper applied Pre – Construction treatment is a wise investment and has long been recommended. Unfortunately, the demands of builders for the least expensive treatment have negatively affected pre-construction termite treatment in Mohali. Under-dosing and insufficient volumes of termiticide erode the effectiveness of these treatments and forsake the most opportune time for achieving comprehensive soil barriers. Removal of treated soil and disruption of the termiticide barrier by construction workers, plumbing and landscapers, may also compromise the easiest, cheapest, and best termite treatment method.
Pre- Construction Treatment
– entire soil surfaces of the structure
– around pipes and utility conduits
– along all sides of the foundation & piers
– interior partition walls
– voids and concrete blocks
– vertical treatment of outer perimeter along the foundation after the backfilling and grading has been completed
POST CONSTRUCTION- PERIMETER TREATMENT
Treatment Along Foundations
The soil alongside the foundation is an important area of termite entry and one of the most crucial for effective treatment. Although termites may appear in the center of buildings, infestations are more often associated with perimeter walls and adjoining areas (90% of the termite’s damage). The soil alongside the foundation should be treated to prevent termites from building up mud trails up the foundation wall by drilling along the perimeter of the building and injecting the termiticide.
Treatment Under Slabs
Foundation (Void) Treatment
Termites commonly enter structures through cracks and openings in the foundation. Historically, professionals attempted to “coat” the surface of many masonry voids as possible by drilling above the outside grade and allowing the termiticide to flow down towards the footing. With the current termiticide, such practices are deemed inappropriate and are no longer permissible.
