Method of Treatment
- Drilling will be done along the wall joints of the tiled/cemented/concreted and terrazzo floor with 3-5 feet intervals. Then the termicides will be injected to the soil underneath the floor slab by means of pressure injection.
- Drilling will be done along the exterior walls with 3-5 feet intervals and termicides will be injected to the soil, to create an effective chemical barrier along the foundation.
Termite Bait Stations
Termite Baiting System includes both Above Ground and In Ground components that utilize cartridges containing a bait matrix specially designed to maximize termite acceptance.
Termite bait cartridges contain the latest insect growth regulator which provides fast eradication of subterranean termite infestations. It is easy to handle and install, works without having to drill and is environmentally friendly.
The bait attracts termites to the bait stations to feed even when there is a plentiful supply of alternative foodstuff in the area. The slow acting insect growth regulator in the bait is then taken back to the nest and spread throughout the colony before taking effect. This allows the effect to reach even the Queen and the King. This targets the heart of the colony.
