Termites aren’t just a problem in homes and buildings that have been around for many years. In fact, new construction is highly vulnerable to termite infestations. Termites are attracted to the wood used for construction and can easily invade while it’s being built. This means that you could end up with a brand new home that already has termites hiding in the walls.
Effective Termite Prevention
How can you avoid having to deal with these wood-destroying pests when you’re having a new building constructed? At Island Pest Control, we provide termite soil treatments for new construction. These termite control treatments are designed to offer a high degree of protection from termites, so you don’t have to worry about these pests invading and damaging your new home.
Safe Termite Soil Treatment
Why treat the soil and not the wood directly? Termites that infest new buildings come from the soil in the construction area. Treating the soil helps lower the risk of having these insects emerge from their nests and invade the wood that’s being used for construction. The chemical treatments that are used typically kill termites that are living in the soil, providing homeowners with even more protection from infestations. This type of treatment involves digging trenches around the building’s foundation and applying pesticides to the soil in these areas. Termite bait can also be used in areas where pesticide use is not considered safe.
Termite Prevention Timing
When should you have termite soil treatments done on your property? If you’re doing new construction, the timing is crucial to ensure that you have effective termite prevention. Our pest control professionals can work with you on determining the right schedule for these treatments to provide your new home with optimal protection.
