Termite Prevention

One Of The Best Lines Of Defense Against Termites Is A Prevention Plan

  • Our wood pretreatment service division takes steps to prevent future termite damage during the construction of your home, business or rental property.
  • We use Bora-Care® to pretreat during the “dried-in” phase of construction (when the roof, studs, exterior wall, sheathing, and other framing elements are in place, but before insulation and interior wall coverings such as sheetrock, paneling, etc. are installed).
  • We provide a 2-year warranty on any Bora-Care® pretreatment.
  • Protect a new construction or existing structure. For borates to penetrate wood, the surface must be unfinished areas such as the attic, basement, crawls space garage, shed, deck, balconies Etc.
  • Preventative termite treatments also work efficiently to eliminate termites indoors and outdoors. It can control a wide variety of pests including dry wood termites, Formosan termites, subterranean termites, decay fungi, carpenter ants and beetles.

Bora-care Is Proven Effective To Kill And Prevent:

  • Drywood termites
  • Subterranean termites
  • Formosan termites
  • Carpenter ants
  • Powderpost beetles
  • Old house borers
  • PLUS: Bora-Care will kill and prevent algae and wood-decay fungi

Bora-Care is applied directly onto wood surfaces. Because the active ingredient in Bora-Care is a mineral salt, it doesn’t break down over time, so it remains in the wood for the life of the wood, providing long-term protection. By keeping the wood sealed or protected from moisture, as in the wall voids of a structure, you eliminate the need for retreatment.

Bora-Care diffuses into wood and remains there for the life of the wood, providing residual protection is formulated with a concern for the environment. The active ingredient is a borate mineral salt Bora-Care prevents subterranean termites from tubing across treated wood and other structural material HUD allows Bora-Care treatments.

The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) 99-A form allows direct wood treatment of Bora-Care as a primary termite treatment in new home construction.

Bora-Care is a low odor termiticide that is applied directly to the wood—answering the concerns of homeowners who are demanding less-toxic alternatives. Bora-Care is listed in the International Building Code and the International Residential Code and meets the sill plate end-cut requirements set by building codes and the American Wood-Preservers’ Association.

Non-Toxic Termiticides

Altriset®

The active ingredient in Altriset® termiticide was formulated based on a naturally occurring compound found in the bark of a South American plant, Ryania speciosa. Provides almost immediate and long-term residual control.

Once termites come in contact with Altriset, their mouthparts become paralyzed within hours, stopping them from causing destruction to your home. Because Altriset is easily shared among termite colony members, you can expect control within three months.

Altriset® is used for complete and long-lasting termite control.

Altriset® provides long-term structural protection by controlling termites and leaving residual protection in surrounding soil so that termites do not return.

Results may vary slightly by location.

Altriset doesn’t affect pets, children, or other members of your family. Since it’s applied only where there’s direct evidence of termite activity, you may not even realize that Altriset is working to protect your property!
