Is Termite Pretreatment Necessary?

Termite control and treatment revolves around the understanding of what termites feed on, how they build their nests, and their behavior. Treatment options also depend on the severity of the infestation and whether underground damage has occurred. 

The pretreatment of wood refers to the use of treatments aimed at permanently reducing the populations of termites in an area before any invasive activity takes place such as drill operations. There are various reasons why it is important to reduce the population of Termites before any invasive controls are carried out. For one, most forms of invasive control will be far more successful when undertaken as a preventative measure against a population in decline. Secondly, most forms of termite control carry with them potential risks and these can be significantly increased when dealing with an active infestation.

Termite Treatment Before Pouring Slab

There are a few things to consider before treating a slab for termites. The first is to accurately measured and scale the slab. Once this is known, the proper treatment options can be selected. When it comes to treating a slab, there are three main options: baiting, fumigation, or sealing. Baiting systems use food or attractants to lure the termites out of their nests, then a chemical is applied to kill them. Fumigation uses poisonous gas to kill the termites all at once. Sealing systems involve coating the slab with a layer of waterproof material and applying pressure. This creates a barrier that stop pests from entering and prevents water damage. All of these treatments require some preparation ahead of time.

Treating Termites In Drywall

When diagnosing and treating termites, one of the most important things to consider is how to access the colony. Drywall can be a formidable barrier to entry for professional pest controllers, so it's important to approach the problem from multiple angles. One option is to insert a small camera through an opening in the drywall into the colony. This method is best when you're dealing with an infested area that's difficult or impossible to access with a standard inspection tools. If you don't have access to a camera, or if you only want to inspect specific areas of the colony, you can use probes or sniffers that detect the presence of termites. You can also use methyl bromide gas, which is a common treatment for termites but may also cause damage to surrounding structures.

How To Make Plywood Termite Proof

All Pest Solutions - Termite Treatment for New Construction
Plywood is a light and strong material, making it an ideal candidate for use in construction applications that may be susceptible to pests. One approach to protecting plywood from termites is to coat the board with a termite-repelling sealant. There are several types of sealants available, so it is important to find one that is specifically designed for use on wood products. Some of the ingredients in termite-repelling sealants can be toxic, so it is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully when applying the sealant. The sealant should be applied liberally to the plywood surface and allowed to dry for at least 48 hours before constructing or using the board. In some cases, it may be necessary to treat entire buildings with a termite-repelling sealant in order to protect against damage from termites.
