Termites Control Services / Termite Management Services
- There are over 3000 described species of termite living today.
- These numerous species are broken down into three main species i.e. Subterranean termites, damp wood termites and dry wood termites.
- Subterranean termite is the most destructive & commonly found termite. It exclusively feed on wood & other material having cellulose. It requires moisture for its survival.
- Through inspection of the property by our expert team is a first step toward the management.
- We also treat the upper floors & furniture, fixture as termite can infest upper floors by gaining entry via infested building material or by swarms or by secondary colony.
We use lots of wooden furniture /fixtures for the interiors of our premises. We also notice use of wood for the structure of old buildings i.e. wooden stair cases, beams, rafters, ceiling, flooring etc. Everyone always likes to protect this valuable furniture fixture from wood destroying insects.
Some most common wood destroying insects are as follows -
• Carpenter ants
• Woodborers/Powder post beetles
Termite Control Treatment -
WORKER TERMITES SWARMERS
Termites are very important to life on earth. They are found most abundantly in forests, specifically tropical forests, and there are thousands of species that play a vital role in the recycling of nitrogen back into the atmosphere.
Termites eat wood, and they help to break down decaying tree trunks in the forest. Not only tree trunks, but branches, leaves, and plant matter too tough for other life forms to digest.
Termites are the only ones that can break down wood on a mass scale. Without them, the fallen trunks of trees would soon pile up and kill the forest.
There are over 3000 described species of termite living today.
These numerous species are broken down into three main species i.e. Subterranean termites, damp wood termites and dry wood termites.
Termites have the ability to change from one caste type to another during their immature stages. This allows the colony to change the proportion of different caste members as the need arises.
Subterranean termite is the most destructive & commonly found termite. It exclusively feed on wood & other material having cellulose. It requires moisture for its survival.
Termite is a hidden infestation as most of the infestation remains hidden inside the structure. Visual sign such as presence mud tubes, hollow sound of wooden fixture/furniture, discoloration of wooden flooring, paneling, presence of winged reproductive/swarms etc.
Through inspection of the property by our expert team is a first step toward the management. After inspection & interaction with property owner, occupant/property manager, we plan the IPM program for termite management.
Eliminating moisture from infested structure can helps in control of termite infestation.
Spot Treatment -
Termite Management Services carry out spot treatment i.e. treatment of all visible termite spot by injecting/spraying insecticide.
Perimeter Drilling Treatment -
We treat the external & internal wall perimeter of the infested buildings.
At the junction of floor & wall, we drill 12mm holes at 30cm intervals. In this angular hole, we inject insecticide under pressure to create insecticidal barriers. After our treatment we seal the holes by white or gray cement. Similarly, we also drill holes around fixed furniture, fixture, door & window frames, cracks & construction joint.
If the spread of infestation is heavy then this treatment can be carried out upper floor also (after inspection).
Pre Constuction Anti Termite Treatment -
This is an ideal treatment carried out during the construction. The treatment is cost effective & gives long time protection against termites.
We carry out anti-termite pre construction treatment as per IS 6313.
STAGE I: - Treatment of sides & bottom surface of foundation up to height of 300mm is carried out by spraying water based insecticide @ 5L/m².
STAGE II: - We treat the backfill earth in immediate contact with the foundation by spraying water based insecticide @ 7.5L/ m².
STAGE III: - We treat top surface of the consolidated earth within plinth wall with water based insecticide @ 5L/m².
STAGE IV:- We treat the earth along external perimeter of the building after completion after rodding at 15cm interval to a depth of 30cm to expose the foundation wall surface @ 7.5L/ m² of vertical surface with water based insecticide.
(TREATMENT STAGES VARIES ACCORDING TO THE TYPE OF FOUNDATION)
We also treat the upper floors & furniture, fixture as termite can infest upper floors by gaining entry via infested building material or by swarms or by secondary colony
Carpenter ant can be easily distinguished from termite by their dark colour narrow waist, and elbowed antennae. These ants prefer damp /rotting wood, foam &cellulose insulation. They expel wood fragment from their excavation point.
Mode of the treatment is depend upon the infestation level & infested area.
Woodborers / Powder Post Beetles -
There are several species of powder post beetles are found all over the globe. They are varying in length from 1/16'' to 3/8''. They have flattened bodies, a prominent head & segmented antennae. Some time they can lie dormant for long period of time.
Actual damage is caused by larvae. Larvae bore into the wood as soon as they hatch. Living in the wood, they create tunnels called as galleries as they eat their way through the timber.
When the larvae are nearly full grown, they bore to the surface of wood & pupate. The adult bore out through the surface soon after pupation, pushing a fine powdery wood dust.
Mode of treatment is again depending upon the level of infestation. We inject oil based insecticide by doctor's syringe into the holes created wood borer. If the wood is in raw condition, we can treat the surface with oil based insecticide. It is always essential to monitor the fresh infestation.
Garden Pests / Insects Management -
Gardens, lawns & indoor plants are always on high risk from a variety of pests such as aphids, ants, mealy bugs, slugs, spiders ,mites, white fly, scales , termites, grass hopers, bees ,wasps, crickets, beetles, moths, borers, snails .
We need to battle constantly to control this wide range of pest throughout the year.
Careful inspection, interaction with gardener/owner/manager, sound knowledge of pest biology & ecosystem is a must for pest management operator.
We provide tailor made services depending upon the type & scale of infestation.
