Post-construction Termite Treatments
There are a number of reasons you might want to consider having your home treated for termites. Maybe you saw swarming reproductive adult termites flying out from the foundation of your home, or you noticed some damage to your drywall or baseboards. Or perhaps you noticed termites in your wood pile and you want to be proactive and treat your home before an infestation occurs. Regardless of your reason, call us so we can discuss your options. We will give you a customized estimate based on your unique property.
Since subterranean termites invade your home from the soil, we focus on creating a continuous vertical pesticide barrier around the entire exterior of your home. This involves digging a trench around the exterior and filling it up with a top quality liquid termiticide. Concrete slab directly abutting the house is drilled into to make holes large enough to perform a sub-slab injection of the termiticide. By doing this, termite colonies already inside the home will contact the barrier as they move in and out of the house, and new colonies will be prevented from gaining entry. We also treat damaged areas inside the home by injecting foam termiticide directly into the walls. Our treatments are very thorough, and our crew usually completes the job in 4-6 hours.
Pre-construction Termite Treatments
A common practice in modern construction is to treat foundation soil with an approved termiticide before the concrete slab is poured. Treating the entire area underneath a structure makes it very difficult for subterranean termites to enter the structure from the ground. Since the treated soil is protected from the elements after the concrete is poured, the treatment can remain effective for years due to the slow break down of the termiticide.
We also offer an option to treat the bare stubs with a termiticide that will prevent infestations. This is done immediately after framing and before the drywall or siding is installed.
Termites thrive in El Paso’s sandy soil, making pre-construction termite treatments extremely important. If you are building a home, tell your contractor you want a pre-construction treatment, and then call us to schedule it!
