Pests We Treat Photo Album: Termites Coming Up From a Crack in the Slab in Rumson, NJ
We recently treated this home in Rumson, NJ for termites.
Crack in the Slab
The termites were coming up from a crack in the slab in the basement and were causing significant damage to the header board.
First Let's Drill
Termites live beneath the soil and enter your home below the ground level of the dirt. For an effective treatment, we must drill into the concrete in the basement and around the perimeter of the home.
Space Them Out
When drilling, it's imperative that we space the holes at least 15-18 inches apart. This ensures that the liquid application has room to spread out and increases the chance that the termites will walk through the application.
Next, we injected a liquid termiticide in the basement and around the exterior perimeter of the home. This application binds to the treated area and creates a protective zone that the termites cannot 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. In a short amount of time, the termites will be exterminated and the home will be protected from termites for many years to come.
