The threat posed by termites is too often overlooked – until they strike. Eradicating a sustained termite infestation can be a frustrating and expensive process, but failing to take action against termites can put the structural integrity of your property in jeopardy. Fortunately, PestBusters offers complete solutions for termite-proofing structures in the pre-construction phase, as well as the most effective post-construction methods used to decimate termite colonies.
Prevention is always better than cure. Termite-proofing your property during the pre-construction stage is both a worthwhile investment and the surest way of preventing a termite outbreak, and costly remedial treatments or damage replacement. Cutting corners here is asking for trouble later.
PestBusters applies premium chemicals (Fipronil, Imidacloprid or Thiamethoxam) onto the construction site where a building is being constructed. This provides a treated zone within the soil that will allow foraging termites to pick up low doses of the chemical. However, the contaminated termites will not die immediately.
As a result, the chemical residue is then passes on virally to other termites in their nest during their feeding and grooming process. Soon, the entire colony will be eradicated, keeping your property termite-free. Additionally, Trithor is a Termite Protection System that forms a physical barrier in the undersurface of the building, repelling and killing termites at all entry points with an environmentally-friendly Deltamethrin solution, offering unparalleled protection against termites.
When termite outbreaks occur, there are a number of solutions that can be applied. The Dusting process involves the careful placement of termiticidal powder onto the tracks of the termites. They will then transfer the toxic substance back to the colony and onto one another.
Another approach involves the use of Foaming chemicals, which is strategically applied in areas where termites are suspected to be hiding by way of a tiny hole drilled in the immediate vicinity. Termites come into contact with the chemicals, which do not kill them immediately, but are designed to inflict damage on the larger colony when termites return there.
To termite-proof buildings that have already been constructed, a creative method of introducing premium chemicals into the soil must be utilised. Using the Slab Injection method, holes are drilled along the perimeter of the structure, which allows chemicals to be injected into the soil to form a treated zone for the long-term protection of your property.
