Subterranean Termites Treatment

Subterranean termites survive by living in the soil in colonies. As they make their homes in the soil, the soil needs to be treated. Because of the fact that subterranean termites require moisture to survive outside. They are frequently found in some plants, firewood, trees, mulch, and scrap lumber. If you want to control and prevent them, you have to choose the best Termite Treatment Services near you.

Prevention of subterranean termites include:

  • Altering or extending downspouts so that they efficiently direct moisture away from the foundation of your home
  • Cleaning out your gutters
  • Covering or removing standing bodies of water
  • Ensuring that no brick veneer, foam insulation or siding extends below the soil grade
  • Grinding down or pulling up dead tree stumps in your yard
  • Making sure that there is no direct, wood-to-ground contact with decks, patios or porches
  • Reducing trash and the damp debris found near the home
  • Repairing and recognizing every structural and plumbing leak
  • Stacking firewood away from the structure of the building

The aim of the treatment is to keep a chemical blanket between the termites in the soil and the structure above. Based on the type of construction, treatment may involve, trenching and/or rodding or vertical drilling to treat the soil. As subterranean termites are attracted to moisture, it is important to avoid this condition to prevent re-infestation.
