The best termite treatment for your home will depend on several factors. Advantage Pest Control Solutions uses Advance termite baiting systems as well as conventional chemical termite treatments, perimeter termite treatments, and termite spot treatments to control subterranean termite infestations in homes and commercial buildings.
Advance Termite Bait Stations are placed in the soil around your home, at intervals of 10 - 15ft. Advance termite bait stations are found by foraging termites. The termite bait station has an attractive medium for the termites to feed on. When termites are found feeding on a bait station during a termite inspection, a poison bait is applied. Visit the informative Advance website to learn more about Advance termite baiting systems for termite control.
Perimeter Liquid Termite Treatments are similar to conventional liquid termite treatments. The chemical is placed into the soil around the foundation and under concrete slabs adjoining the foundation to form a chemical barrier. Because we use modern non-repellent chemicals, the termites can not detect the barrier and will pass through the treated soil. As the termites do this, they pick up some of the chemical and on returning to the nest, some of the chemical is transferred to termites in the nest.
The chemical works slowly so that the termites have time to return to the nest before dying. Most or all of the termites in the nest will die protecting the home from further damage. The chemical binds to the soil when applied will continue to be effective for up to 10 years. The chemicals are low odor and are the same chemicals used in many popular flea control products applied to cats and dogs. In fact the concentration of chemical in the flea treatments is higher than the concentration applied to the soil around your home.
