Videos - Termite Inspection and Treatment Process

Our Approach to Termite Treatment

Termites live under the ground and are used to being surrounded by moisture. Once they emerge from under the ground, they dehydrateydrate quickly and easily. They create mud tubes (which we often see during inspections of termite infested houses) to preserve moisture while traveling up basement walls. They are vulnerable for desiccation.

There is a 5 step process we follow when dealing with termites.

  1. Inspection. Checking for presense of mud tubing, looking for the tubes snaking away up the wall, from the cement slab into the floor joists.
  2. Treatment. Drilling into the cement slab. Making holes every 12-20 inches.
  3. Treatment. Application of liquid Termidor chemical. The liquid is placed inside the drilled holes.
  4. Treatment. Injection of dry Termidor powder into affected wood.
  5. Repairing the Damage. Replaced damaged wood - steps, floor joists, studs.
