What Ia A Termite Inspection?
A termite inspection is a visual inspection of the readily accessible areas of a home for evidence of wood-destroying insects (WDI) and wood-destroying organisms (WDO). Our inspector will thoroughly examine the indoors, as well as the outdoors of the house. Any place having woodwork or wooden furniture will be checked visually including the attics, basements, and crawl spaces.
Termite Treatment Methods
Although there are a number of ways to deal with a termite infestation, the most effective one seems to be a chemical treatment. The objective of the chemical treatment of termites is to create a continuous termiticide barrier between the termite colony and wood in a building. This can be done by applying termiticide in the soil on both sides of the foundation wall to prevent the action of termites. It creates a barrier that stops the termites from entering the house.
How can termites be prevented?
There are several ways by which a termite infestation can be prevented. One of the ways is to hire a pesticide company’s services to spray liquid termiticide on the foundation before the concrete is laid.
Some situations that give rise to termite infestation are earth to wood contact at support posts, cellulose debris and form boards left in the crawlspace, improper drainage systems, and inadequate ventilation in the crawlspace. Termite infestation can be prevented to a large extent if the house owner keeps these points in mind and constructs the property accordingly.
