Termite Protection Programs Termite nests and their activity can be found in or around every building structure in Thailand. Most damage causing termite species move underground and can invade a building from a distance up to fifty meters in any direction from a mother nest or sub-colony nest.
Termite Tech has found the most effective way to protect structures from a subterranean termite invasion or to solve current termite problems, is to be able to implement multiple techniques. Every termite job presents different challenges, and using several options for treatment may be essential for success.
Soil Injection On any structure where it is feasible, an in-ground termite barrier should be installed. A continuous chemical barrier is formed in the soil by injecting the ground around the perimeter of a building. The chemical binds to soil particles and will not deteriorate for at least one year.
Drill and Inject Where concrete is installed up against a building, and there are no open soil areas at the edge of these slabs, small holes will be drilled to inject a chemical barrier. The holes are only 8 mm. in diameter and once refilled with color matching grout, they are not even noticeable. The same holes can then be easily re-opened the next year to top-up the chemical barrier.
Raised Structures For buildings built on columns or piers, and the underneath is exposed, Termite Tech installs a spray on coating of our chemical to all the concrete supports, walls, wood, and piping. The chemical will adhere to anything it touches and last up to one year. Again creating a barrier to stop any termite invasion attempt into a building. We implement this technique frequently on Koh Samui Island, where many of our jobs are structures built on mountain hillsides or slopes.
Repellent & Non Repellent Chemicals It is critical when treating termites that have entered a structure to use a chemical that they cannot detect, referred to as a non - repellent. If termites detect the presence of a chemical they will move and enter through another part of the building, thus spreading the infestation and damage. As a rule of thumb, if a customer can smell the chemical a pest control company is using, then you can bet the termites can sense it as well. Termite Tech only uses non- repellent chemicals for the treatment of termites which is not harmful to humans and pets. This slow killing, undetected strategy eliminates the movement and spreading problem and more importantly give the termites a chance to unknowingly track the poison back home and doom their nest.
