Pests We Treat Photo Album: Termites Found Beneath the Pipes in Fair Haven, NJ
We were sent out to the home of a new customer in Fair Haven, NJ to treat for termites.
Found Active Termite Mud Tubes
As we inspected the boiler room in the basement we found quite a lot of active termite mud tubes throughout the area. Mud tubes are pencil-width size tubes made by the worker termites.
Used for Protection & Traveling
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.
Foaming Termiticde Application
For an effective treatment, since termites live beneath ground level, we drilled into the floors of the basement and around the exterior of the home. Next, we injected a foaming termiticide into floor of the basement and around the entire perimeter of the home.
How the Foaming Termiticide Works
The application 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. Once we finished, we plugged and filled in each drill hole. In a short amount of time, the termites will be exterminated and the home will be protected from termites for many years to come.
