Cebu Termite Treatment Options

These treatments are commonly used as a preventive measure to deter termite entry into a home and also to provide ongoing protection after activity has been discovered and treated. 

A liquid termiticide is directly applied through a wand to exposed soil next to external walls of your home. In areas where there is paving, concrete or other hard surfaces the chemical is injected through drill holes.

Certain types of termiticides provide a deterrent to termite entry. Other types are undetectable by termites but the chemical stays with termites which leads to either a large reduction in numbers or elimination of the colony. 

The chemicals do break down over time. To remain effective the soil will need resprayed at least every 5 years.

Termite Barrier Types – What is the best fit for your property in Cebu?

There are more and more termite barrier types coming onto the market. So which one is the right fit for your home?

Termite Barrier Chemical

Firstly, A chemical barrier is a full perimeter treatment around your home. This is when you dig a trench down to the footings. Where accessible this trench will go all around the dwelling. If there are obstructions like pavers, concrete paths, etc. You can remove Pavers and then trench this area as above then place the pavers back. With your concrete areas, you drill holes every 200 mm to 400mm depending on which chemical you use(to inject the chemical through). Depending on the quality of the soil in the trenched areas it is then drenched with a termiticide Preferably Termidor. The soil must be of good quality. If you have poor quality soil we will replace it with more suitable soil. You then saturate the soil with the chemical. Then you add more soil and you fill-up the trench and then you saturate it again in termiticide.

With Liquid Termite Barrier, you'll receive 100% control in less than 120 days. We'll apply a liquid treatment barrier around your home, which termites will ingest, killing them in the process. We have the barriers inspected to ensure the "treated zone" is working properly. We’ll also provide a thorough interior inspection to give you added peace of mind.

For effective termite extermination our experienced technicians apply Termiticide along the foundation or exterior of the home thru soil injection and drilling or thru trenching.  Once applied, the termiticide blends into the soil and is transferred to termites as they come in contact with the agent.  The termiticide is also transferred among the termite colony as infected termites come in contact with other termites.  Termiticide product kills termites both by ingestion as well as by contact.

Our termite control treatment service will terminate an existing termite infestation and protect against future occurrences.

Reticulation System

Secondly, A reticulation system is similar to the above barrier type. Except you lay a pipe at the bottom of the trench. Like an irrigation pipe, it has been designed to take high-pressure termiticide and disperse it evenly through tiny holes. The trench is backfilled and drenched as per the above barrier. This system a great termite barrier. So when you need your system renewed the cost is dramatically reduced. As all your labor content is not needed. There are refill points every 10 to 12 meters where the Pest Controller just plugs in his pump and refills the system. The cost to recharge the barrier is a fraction of the installation price.

Termite Baiting System

The technology to kill termites using baits is now widely available. Instead of injecting chemicals into the soil which will only last a few years and potentially contaminate the environment, termite baits are placed directly into the ground around the outside of a structure. Termite baiting is simple and can also be used as a preventive measure to detect termites before they become a problem. Termite baiting allows termite control in situations where the structure is untreatable with soil termiticides, there is concern about pesticide use and/or in structures where soil treatments have failed.

HOW DOES TERMITE COLONY BAITING WORK ?

Termite baiting works by killing the workers in the termite colony. When the worker termites have been eliminated, the colony is starved of food and goes into a suppression phase or "decline". The reproductives, queens and soldiers die of starvation because they cannot feed themselves. When the queens and reproductives cannot eat because there are no workers to feed them, they die and the termite colony starves and is virtually eliminated.  To effectively bait for termites, a pre-baiting strategy must be implemented:

Step 1 - Pre-Baiting

In order to establish a feeding connection with the termite colony, the scout termites have to locate a food source and the worker termites must feed on it. Termites eat wood and cellulose, nothing else. In the early stages of the pre-baiting process, the termite scouts or foragers will find the bait stations and "tag" them with a "pheromone" which is a scent trail for the worker termites to follow. Next, the worker termites will follow the pheromone trail established by the scout termites and begin feeding. This process establishes the feeding cycle with the termite colony.

Termite detector stations - often called monitors or just termite bait stations, are specifically engineered to encourage termite feeding and to establish a feeding connection with the termite colony. It has been said that termite detector stations are "windows" to the termite colony. It is important that a solid feeding connection be established in an area where the termites can continually feed without disturbing them. That is the reason that Termite detector stations were developed. Termite detector stations only contain wood. This wood is called detection wood or "interception" wood. It only serves to establish a feeding cycle with the scout and worker termites so that a toxicant can later be used. When a solid feeding connection has been established with the worker termites, the wood can be replaced with a toxic substance that the termites cannot detect, which kills them. When the worker termites die, the colony cannot feed itself, so the termite population slowly starves, dies and the colony eventually crashes. There are several different bait station designs pictured below. They are all equally capable of establishing a termite feeding cycle. Ease of use is what is important.

Step 2 - Using Toxicant (Growth Hormone)

After the worker termites have begun feeding and a solid connection is established through the worker termites with the colony, a growth hormone is placed inside the feeding station. The termites are continually fed this hormone until the feeding stops. The length of the feeding cycle and the amount of hormone used depends on the termite population and the size of the colony(s).

Step 3 - Termite Colony Control

When enough worker termites have been killed 2 things happen. First, the delivery of outside food sources to the colony is eliminated and second, the colony depletes its internal food sources. This causes the queens, kings, soldiers and reproductives within the colony to slowly starve. The worker termites directly feed the soldiers and the queens. Without the worker termites, the colony cannot feed itself, and will soon exhaust it's food supply. When all food sources have been depleted, the colony begins its decline. This is the goal of termite baiting. Termite baiting is really a simple process, but can be confusing since there are so many bait products to choose from. The bottom line is that all termite bait systems work. Some take longer than others to achieve control.

Termite Baiting System Installation Procedures by Jansen Pest Control

termite baiting system components are prepared: Above ground stations, In ground stations and termite bait

Above ground stations are installed on infested areas identified in step 1 by using small screws or duct tape to hold it in place and sometimes cellulose paste is applied to draw termites into the stations

with the Above ground station in place, termite bait cartridge containing a slow acting toxicant mixed with attractants is placed on the slot and closed, ready to start termite feeding until the next inspection.

In-ground Termite Interceptors are assembled. It contains timber interceptors to direct termites scavenging on the ground into it.
