How We Treat Your Premises With Biflex®

Return to previous page

In protecting against termites, the basic idea is the same in all buildings: treat the soil to form a barrier that termites cannot penetrate. Because termites can move through the tiniest cracks in concrete or metal, the barrier must be absolutely continuous. Even the smallest break in the barrier can let termites in.

This means we've got a lot more to do than just treat around the perimeter of your building. While that takes care of the biggest stretch of the defence we put up, there are lots of other places that need special treatments.

Here are the things we do to make the barrier continuous. Not all of the activities listed will be done as we customise our treatment depending upon the structure treated, termite species and activity, product label restrictions and State laws. In some situations, specialised equipment may be used.

Step 1 is a throrough inspection to look for activity, identifying the termite species involved and to note conditions conducive to termite problems. We will also indicate to you what corrective measures we recommend you take in addition to our treatment activities.

1. Trench and treat outside foundation. The basic first step.

2. Trench and treat inside crawl space foundation wall. This is neccessary if your house has crawl space or a basement with a dirt floor.

4. Treat beneath plant boxes or other parts of the structure that protrude out from the main structure.

5. Soil under plumbing fittings must be treated and access panels may have to be cut.

6. Treat spaces around chimney.

7. Treat hollow blocks.
