Pests We Treat Photo Album: Termites Relaxing in the Living Room in West Long Branch, NJ
Recently, we treated a home in West Long Branch, NJ for termites.
Mud tubes are pencil-width size tubes made by the worker termites from soil and wood cemented together using their saliva and excrement as "glue." Termites use these tunnels to travel to and from their nest when foraging for food. These protective tubes allow the termites to stay moist underground.
First, we treated the wall voids with a foaming termiticde.
This is How it Works
The termiticide binds to the treated area and creates a protective zone that the termites can't detect. The termites will come in contact with this treatment as they go about their normal routines, bring it back to their nest, and spread it among the colony.
To Cover All Bases
We also discovered that the termites were entering the home via the wall that was underneath the stucco facing. To cover all bases, we drilled into the foundation block below the windows...
Our Liquid Treatment for Termites
...and injected a liquid version of the termiticide into the drill holes as well as around the entire exterior of the home.
In a short amount of time, the termites will be exterminated and the home will be protected from termites for many years to come.
