There are several types of termite treatment options available. The two most commonly used are liquid treatments and baiting systems. Each of them can be very effective, and they both have their pros and cons. Want to find out more about them?
Drill holes for termite treatment?
What is a drill holes termite treatment? Pros and Cons of a Method.
So, drilling holes is something you are interested in. When termite treatment drilling should be used and why?
So, one of the most notable reasons for you to drill holes, is to insert repellents and/or baits inside the ground or your house’s wooden walls.
And is it effective to drill holes in your house? Absolutely. In fact, it is one of the most popular ways of temporarily (or for one-time use) defending a wooden construction from termites.
In the first case, the holes are drilled and the insecticide is poured inside to prevent further infestations and completely stop termites from appearing.
In the seconds case, you drill holes into or close to the nests, apply an active insecticide and that way you get rid of the nest immediately. Both are very effective ways of pest-control used world-wide. On the negative side, well, you have to drill holes.
Drilling Treatment 100% worth? Termite will Never Enter the House
Mark the spot(s) where you are going to drill. We recommend you to try and surround the nest, and not drill into it if you know the exact position. A couple or a triple of holes for a small nest would be enough. This number increases the larger the nest is.
When the spots are marked, go on and drill. Be accurate, don’t drill to deep not to disturb the termites too much. Be sure to wear all the required equipment as well if you are afraid of something going wrong.
When the holes are done, we should go on and fill them up with a chosen insecticide. Liquid and dust pesticides will work just fine.
Rebuild House or New House Treatment
Organic treatments for termites also come with pros and cons. Liquid treatments vary widely depending on the specific termiticide being used, but they should always be done in accordance with the particular label. This usually includes digging a small trench around the structure, filling the trench with termiticide, and then back filling the trench and treating the dirt as it is placed in the trench again. Depending on the type of home, and the type of product, it is also common to drill holes through brick or hollow block to treat back inside the void. Often crawl spaces also must be treated if present. The purpose in treating with a liquid is to create a treated zone throughout the potential entry points termites could use to infest the structure, thus stopping their ability to feed on it and do damage.
The advantage with a liquid treatment is that it usually works much faster. Depending on the product used, feeding can be stopped as soon as the same day as the service, or as slow as two to three months from when service was completed. As with the baits, usually the slower acting treatments are most effective.
When using a faster product, the termites die within a few minutes of exposure. Due to the nature of these products, and the sensitivity of termites, they will know almost immediately that the treatment has been done, and exactly where the product is. The downside of this is that if there are any deficiencies in the treatment, anywhere the soil didn’t allow penetration as in other places, or any abnormalities in the construction then the termites can avoid the treatment and continue to feed on the home. Another down side to the faster products is that as it wears down over time, termites will know when it has dissipated enough for them to safely return to the structure. Depending on the product used, this can be as fast as just a few short years.
When using non repellent termiticides to treat a structure the termites don’t know where it is, and often this allows a much higher portion of the colony to be exposed and eliminated. Many of these non repellent treatments allow for a transfer effect, passing the treatment from a termite that has been exposed, on to others that haven’t entered the treated areas. This increases the effectiveness of the treatment greatly!
While using non repellent termiticides is a more effective approach to treating termites, it also has its limitations. Even with non-repellents, the termites die much faster than they would using a growth inhibitor like what is used in baiting. Because of this, eventually even the best non repellent treatments will begin to repel due to the dead termites found in their tunnels. As the dead termites increase, the colony may very well abandon feeding at that location before the product has eliminated the colony and the queen. While that is a small downside, the upside is that if they return, or attempt to get at the home from a different location, they will still be exposed to the treatment without detecting it and it will continue to work. Many modern non repellent termiticides have a lifespan from five to twelve years, and potentially more! Non repellents are an effective option to treat termites, and can keep your home safe for years.
