Soil Treatment of Structures

The best time to provide protection against termites is during the planning and construction phase of a structure.

The major objective of subterranean termite control is to establish a chemical barrier between the soil, where termites live and the wood/ food sources in the building. A thorough pre-construction treatment is needed to protect the structure from termites and this requires the use of specialised tools and equipment. This is achieved by creating a continuous termiticide barrier in the soil around the foundations. The termiticide must be applied on all sides of all foundation elements, including foundation walls and pillars.
Concrete slabs can have many other points of entry for termites such as plumbing outlets and expansion joints. Treatment to these areas requires establishing a horizontal barrier. Meanwhile, a vertical barrier must be established around foundation elements adjacent to slabs. The soil underneath and around the concrete slab must be treated with the termiticide before the concrete slab is poured.

One of the most important aspects of performing a successful pre-construction termite treatment involves the close working relationship between the pest control operator and the construction company. Several applications are usually necessary to complete the different stages of treatment.
