There is a no difference in termite infestation or its signs during the pre or post construction period. But, when it comes to treating the termite infestation, the methods to treat them are completely different.
Step 1: The first and foremost step taken to destroy a post construction termite infestation is by treating the walls and the floor junctions. In this step, holes of suitable length are drilled deep into the inner junction of the walls and the floors. Then the termiticide solution is injected under pressure into those holes, in order to create barriers against the termites. The same procedure will be applied to cure the infestation in the other floors above the ground floor.
Step 2: The second step completely deals with the infestation in the wooden attachments. This step too requires drilling holes under the wooden fixtures, such as window frames and door frames, and then the termiticide solution will be drilled into those holes. Even an oil based termiticide will be sprayed all over the wooden attachments that are infested by termites. The pest control services also provide a termite preventive treatment to the other wooden attachments in the home, which aren’t infested but might get infested soon.
Step 3: The third treatment deals with the mud tunnels made by the termites. In this case, first a termiticide solution is sprayed all over the mud tunnels in order to control their movement, and then the mud tunnels are destroyed or removed, and then the infested area will be treated with other termiticide.
Step 4: The fourth and the final treatment deals with treating the surrounding foundation. In this step, holes are drilled along the external walls of the building at a depth of 1feet and then a termiticide solution is injected. After the chemical is injected, the holes are sealed in order to create a barrier to kill the termites.
