Ways to Remove Termites
Protecting Your Property from Damage
Termites are a nuisance. They damage property and cause structural weakness. Termite damage has become such a big problem that special measures are taken to ensure that new construction remains free of them. However, the old constructions can’t be razed due to termite infestations either. Frame's Pest Control, Inc. knows the value of each home and that’s why we work as your personal termite exterminator. We have been using scientific and safe methods for termite removal since 1972.
Effective Methods for Termite Control
Termite spray is one of the quickest ways to get rid of them. However, it isn’t as simple as it sounds. The termiticides used in the spray must be handled very carefully. The spray should only be conducted by a trained termite exterminator. The quantity of spray needed and the areas where the spray is required must be chosen carefully. The spraying equipment is fitted with special valves and seals for deep penetration. Keeping the safety of kids and pets in mind is also very important.
Apart from the quantity of spray needed, the kind of chemical required is also important. Different kinds of termites may need different treatments.
Termite fumigation is one of the most effective ways to treat dry wood termites. However, the process is lengthy and cumbersome. You will have to stay away from your home up to 72 hours or by the time we declare it safe. Your complete home will be covered and fumigated; the gas will penetrate deep into the wood and kill the termites. It takes around six hours to kill all the termites in your home through this process. This method is also successful at killing termites of any stage. However, your home will take much longer to become safe for your return.
Termite Soil Treatment
Termite soil treatment is one of the most effective ways of termite control. Termites make their colonies underground. If the soil is treated, then the termite spread will remain in check. This method is an easy and inexpensive way to prevent termites from accessing your property.
Drilling & Trenching: Chemical Foundation Barrier Treatment
This is a one-time solution that will provide protection from termites for a long period of time. It involves both interior and exterior applications. Holes are drilled at regular intervals of four inches inside your home. These holes are filled with chemicals that ban the entry of termites forever. Outside your home, holes will be drilled at an interval of six inches throughout the perimeter. This will ensure complete soil treatment and your home will remain free of termites. At Frame's Pest Control, Inc., we understand the pain you undergo due to termite damage. For this reason, we go the extra mile to ensure that termites stay away from your property and drill closer holes so that a termite won’t be able to cross the barrier.
Steps to Take Before Treatment
Before any kind of treatment is carried out, it is important to identify the pest clearly. It is essential for using the right chemicals and proportions.
