Pests We Treat Photo Album: Whole Condo Treated for Termites in Kendall Park, NJ
Recently, we were sent out to a condo in Kendall Park, NJ, to treat for termites.
Lots of Mud Tubes in the Garage
During our inspection, we found a lot of termite mud tubes throughout the garage. Mud tubes are pencil-width size tubes made by the worker termites. They 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 Have To Drill
For treatment, we drilled into the concrete in the garage, since termites live beneath the soil, as well as around the entire exterior perimeter of the condo.
Now Comes the Termiticide
Next, we injected a liquid termiticide throughout the garage and around the entire perimeter of the home. The termiticide binds to the treated areas and creates a protective zone that the termites can't detect. The termites will unknowingly come in contact with this treatment as they go about their normal routines, bring it back to their nest, and transfer it among their colony.
The Home is Protected from Termites
Once we finished, we plugged and filled in each one of the drill holes. In a short amount of time, the termites will be exterminated and the home will be protected from termites for many years to come.
