Subterranean termites live in the soil, in colonies. Hence, the soil needs to be treated with a Preventative Termite Treatment, exclusively for Subterranean Termites. Because this kind of subterranean termites require moisture to survive outside, they can be located at some plants, trees, firewood, mulch, and scrap lumber. In addition to moisture, subterranean termites also need cellulose for survival. This is why they eat wood, paper and other cellulose containing products. The key objective of this exclusive treatment is to keep a chemical blanket between the structure above and termites in the soil.
There are so many signs for an infestation, which include shelter tubes, discarded wings, swarming, mud tubes and damaged wood. Some tools such as a good flashlight and a screwdriver may support you to thoroughly inspect for subterranean termites.
When it comes to structures, subterranean termites can be found around cement expansion joints, plumbing penetrations, all types of cracks, and any other areas giving access to the structure. Also, any wood with a direct contact with the soil is a key target for subterranean termites.
As subterranean termites are attracted to moisture depending on the type of construction, termite treatments may involve, trenching and/or rodding or vertical drilling to treat the soil. Hence, it is vital for you to avoid this condition to prevent re-infestation. Subterranean termites are controlled with our exclusive termite control treatment. Our treatment is used all over the structure of the building to discourage termites from attacking the entire structure partially or completely.
