 Treatment Methods

Termidor®

Termidor® is generally used to form a barrier treatment for controlling termite infestations inside and around your home and property. It eliminates termites through both ingestion and contact; it is poisonous to termites simply through contact with other Termidor-tainted individuals.

Termite baits

The technology of the bating system is constantly developing and getting better. In general, it uses bait that is strategically placed in the ground using professional tools. The termites are attracted to this bait; once they feed on it, they die and can be disposed of. This is the most simple, effective, efficient and high-tech method available today. It is environmentally friendly as it doesn’t use harmful chemicals or termiticides which pollute the surrounding water or soil causing future problems.

Many factors such as the home location, the surrounding area and water bodies, the home construction type, material and equipment need to be factored before starting a termite treatment.
