Getting termites out of your house is one thing, but keeping them out is an entirely different process. Many houses are built with termite protection, but this can expire, get damaged, be compromised by modifications to the building or be installed wrong in the first place. Often times building owners think they are protected, but often times this turns out not to be the case. We are able to provide advice and information about the status of your termite protection either through a termite inspection, a free onsite needs assessment (where we don't just try to sell you stuff), or even a conversation.
The primary means of termite protection we use at Boss are chemical soil treatments. We find this to be the most effective means of protecting your home by a large margin. Essentially, we apply products to the soil around a building, through which termites have to pass to gain access. Most times this is as simple as treating the perimeter, but sometimes the area under houses, or even inside them need to be treated. There are also rare cases where areas are not able to be treated safely and successfully. We will advise of the particulars required in each case, as well as the cost and expected result of the treatment.
Treatment is applied through digging trenches in soil areas, to which we apply our products. The trench is then backfilled, and the backfill treated with more product. We may at times use a “soil rod” to apply treatment to deep or hard to reach areas. In areas where there is concrete or pavers, we can either drill through them, and use a slab injection tool to inject product underneath at high pressure, or remove them entirely so the above trenching method before can be used.
