Treatment (External Side):-If there is loose soil around the walls of your building, we dig a shovel width trench close to the external wall of the building exposing the foundation wall surface upto a depth of 50cm.
If there exists a concrete cover or masonry apron around the walls of your building, holes are drilled as close as possible to the plinth wall about 300mm (1ft) apart from each other. Insecticide is then poured, so that it reaches the soil to eliminate the termites present there and to stop them from re-infesting. If your building is on pillars, the holes are drilled around the pillars and insecticide poured into the soil.
Life Cycle of Termite:
The egg-laying termite queen lays her eggs, the termite larvae transform into termite workers, termite soldiers or reproductivetermites.
The main types of termites are:
Dampwood termites like to live and feed in very moist wood. because they need lots of moisture, Dampwood Termites usually live in damp, dying wood or in houses with leaking plumbing that keeps the wood wet.Dampwood termites do not carry disease and don?t usually bother buildings because there is not enough water in the wood. To avoid Dampwood termites, make sure water drains away from your house and keep damp wood away from your home.
Drywood termites form colonies of up to 2,500 members. Drywood Termite colonies don?t have workers. Younger termites, called "false workers", do all the work for the colony. Drywood Termites eat wood, wallpaper, plastics and fabric made from plants.
Drywood Termite colonies are usually found in dry wood and they do not require moisture or contact with the soil.Drywood termites can build nests and dig tunnels in buildings. These tunnels cause major damage because the wooden support beams can become weak and make the building lean or fall down.
To Prevent your Home from Drywood Termite, make sure firewood and scrap wood is stored away from your house.Seal all cracks and crevices around the outside of your home.
Formosan termite colonies can be up to 300 feet long and there can be tens of thousands of termites in a single colony. Formosan termite colonies are divided into three groups: workers, soldiers and reproductives. They are the largest and most destructive kind of termite.
Formosan Termites eat wood and fabric made from plants. When they eat dead trees, these termites help the environment and make space for new plant life.
Formosans live in huge underground colonies, and build mud nests inside the walls of a building. They can also live in boats and buildings.To avoid Formosan termites, make sure water drains away from your house and keep damp wood away from your home.
Subterranean Termite colonies can have up to 2 million members! Their colonies are divided into three groups: workers, soldiers and reproductives.Termites eat wood, wallpaper, plastics and fabric made from plants.
Subterranean termites need contact with the soil to survive. They live in underground colonies or in wet areas aboveground. They build tunnels to reach food and every spring, groups of reproductive termites fly off to start new colonies.
Subterranean termites are the most destructive kind of termite. They can eat a lot of wood and they can cause a lot of expensive damage to a house! They can destroy building foundations, wooden support beams, plastic plumbing pipes, sub-flooring, insulation ? even swimming pool liners and filtration systems! Termites can also injure or destroy living trees and shrubs.
To Prevent your house from Subterranean Termites Don't let water pool around your home's foundation. Termites like that!Never leave wood scraps in the yard for them to snack on.
Pre Construction Termite Bangalore
If you are planning to build a house or develop your property for building your office, termite control is the first thing you should think of. We use highly professional and advanced techniques for treating the termite infestation problem. Direct liquid treatments are applied to the outside, inside and also in the foundation to eliminate the termites completely. Direct injection of liquid pesticide (termiticide) in areas like the foundation, within the foundation walls and also areas under the concrete slabs is part of our specialized termite control treatment plan.
Pre Construction Termite Treatment Stages:
We treat the sides and bottom surface of the foundation trenches and pits with chemical to a height of about 30cm at the rate of 5 Lit. per square meter of surface area.
Backfill earth on each side of all built up walls, which will be in immediate contact with the foundation, should be treated with chemical at the rate of 7.5Lit. per linear meter of vertical surface of the substructure, to a depth of 45cm and width of 15cm. The chemical shall be directed towards the masonry surfaces so that earth in contact with these surfaces is well treated with the chemical.
Before laying the floor,treat the top surface of the consolidated earth within the plinth walls with chemical at the rate of 5lit. per square meter. Ensure back fill against foundation is treated to its full depth.
Builders should take care that any disruption of the barrier during later construction work (e.g. creation of gardens over the treated barrier), may lead to untreated gaps.
