During a routine termite inspection, The Pest Company’s Licensed Termite Inspector located live schedorhinotermes working within the termite leads of Nasutitermes. It’s not uncommon to come across a new infestation in a similar area that Termites once attacked. More termites are back in this area because the property does not have a termite management system installed to protect against an attack. Termite entry points are like highways, once the road is built, we use it frequently; termites do the same; they know there is a food source at the end of the line.
On this occasion, a live termite treatment will occur using Termidor and a foaming agent and machine to enhance the delivery. Once we have located the live termites (as shown in the video), we can now treat the live termites to eliminate the colony using Termidor.
Termidor is a non-repellant termiticide injected within the areas where live termites work; this is done with minimal disturbance. This will allow the Termidor to be transferred to each other and back to the main colony to achieve colony elimination.
Once the Termidor Termite treatment is carried out, the area is left undisturbed for 30 days to let Termidor do the work. Once the 30 days are up, a recheck of the treated areas is necessary to ensure no live termites are found. Once the termite inspector clarifies, it is best to get a licensed builder to inspect the framework hidden behind the wall lining to ensure no live termites. From here, a Termidor termite treated zone is recommended to ensure long-term Termite protection of the home.
