Generally, subterranean termites must maintain contact with soil to survive. However, there are occasions where native subterranean termites can live above ground in structures and be completely cut off from soil contact; although, this is not common. The probability that termites will attack a wooden structure after construction Termite attacks may even begin within a year after construction. Proper treatment of the soil with a liquid termiticide (insecticide formulated for termite control) before construction (pre-treatment) significantly reduces the threat from subterranean termites. If you know or suspect that your home is infested with termites, retain the services of a professional termite management of S.R. Chemical company. It is Suitable for use on all kinds of plywood, hardwood etc. Easy to apply to wood by spraying and injecting. Treated timber can be polished stained varnished painted. Give protection against wood Killer insects and wood rotting fungus. No powder falling problem arises in packed sheets of plywood, but as soon as furniture maker cuts the plywood, hardwood or waterproof ply for making furniture outside atmosphere and wind effect on any plywood. Killer crumbling your valuable furniture which is creating a yellow powder falling problem. Killer treatments to the soil are used to establish an insecticide barrier between the structure and the termite colonies in the soil. Existing concrete slab foundation houses normally require at least three types of treatment:
- Treatment under the concrete floor slab, including porches or patios abutting the house.
- Trenching and treating soil around the concrete slab perimeter outside of and adjacent to the house.
- Drilling and treating the void behind the rock or brick veneer.
The soil beneath the floor slab perimeter inside the footer or stem wall must be treated. Treatment also may be required along both sidesof interior support walls, next to interior partitions, and along all cracks and expansion joints in the slab, if termites are found in theselocations. Sometimes, it is necessary to treat the interior slab perimeter by drilling horizontally or at an angle through the exteriorfoundation walls. This method is often used to treat kitchens and bathrooms from outside the structure. Holes drilled in the slab should bespaced no further than 12 inches apart to achieve an effective, continuous barrier. The actual sub-slab treatment is accomplished byinjecting the termiticide through the concrete slab with a special hollow cylindrical rod inserted vertically through the previously drilledholes. Trenching of soil requires excavating a 6 inch to 8 inches wide by 6 inches to 8-inch deep trench adjacent to the outside foundation wall. Homes on pier and beam foundations are additionally trenched by excavating soil in an area 6 inches to 8 inches wide by 4 inches to 6inches deep around all piers and utility pipes beneath the home, and along inside and outside foundation walls. Trenching is labourintensiveand time consuming but provides a better, more continuous barrier than Roding alone. Make sure that all soil back-filled into thetrench is treated. When trenching is not possible, treatment to soilis sometimes done by injection with the hollow rod alone. The additionalsub-slab injection may be required on porches, patios, breezeways, driveways and entryways where separate concrete slabs exist.
