Termite Treatment with Termiticide

Termite Treatment with Termiticide

This treatment creates an invisible, low toxic chemical barrier between the house and termites. A subterranean termite cannot detect this barrier and carries it in its body. The chemical is spread through the entire colony when the termites interact with each other. Termite Treatment with premise

Premise® Termiticide
Historically, termiticide used were either a “repellant” or a “contact poison”. Termites sense repellants and find other ways to go inside a structure. Contact poison kills the termite as soon as the termite touches any treated area. While both of these are effective immediate solutions, none of these are designed as a long-term solution. Both approaches deal only with foraging termites and there is no attempt of eradicating the main colony itself. find more interesting information about termites and their behavior on this webpage

Premise® Termiticide by Bayer is designed to kill not only the foraging termites, but also more importantly, the eradication of the entire subterranean termite colony itself. Where the termites are observed to be coming in, Premise® is applied to the soil either by digging a 6″ x 6″ trench. Premise® is applied to the trench and the trench is covered back with soil. On slab surfaces, small holes are drilled through concrete. Using a special application tool, Premise® is pressure injected through the slab into the holes.

For the best protection, Premise® termiticide is applied at every potential entry point for a subterranean termite. This includes the entire length on both sides of the foundation, all posts under the house, pipes that touch the ground, and others.

The mode of action of Premise®
Foraging termites cannot detect a Premise® treated zone, ingest Premise® or carry Premise® on their bodies. Instead, these termites will transfer Premise® to other termites by either grooming or feeding one another. Even as very small amounts of Premise® are being spread into the entire subterranean termite colony, termites will become lethargic and forget to eat and feed other termites. Thus the entire colony eventually dies. termite inspection and trwatment

1. Home additions and remodeling is a big project and probably not something you want to tackle yourself. When you decide to move forward with your home addition remodeling, keep in mind these important tips:1. Know what you want. Do you want second story home additions? These are usually the easiest additions to do and they can add the most square footage to a home. How much space do you want to add to your home? Actually draw out your house addition plans. This way when you meet with a contractor, they will understand what you want.

2. Ask questions. Ask the contractor, ask friends, ask neighbors who have been through the process of getting house addition plans. There are also many web sites you can look at to get an idea of the process and what is necessary.

3. Be smart. We all want a huge gorgeous house, but are you planning on staying in your house long enough to make the cost of home additions worth it? Will your home addition ideas increase the value of your house? Will it make your home more desirable in the market place?

4. Make sure you have enough money for the cost of home additions. Any big project like home remodeling is likely to cost more than initial estimates. This is normal, so just plan for it. Make sure you have enough to cover all the high-end fixtures you want – or be ready to compromise a little to come in under budget.

kitchen5. Choose your team. If you are in the Big Bear, California area, we hope you will contact us. We do great work and specialize in home room additions. But, wherever you are, make sure and build your construction team carefully. Check references and make sure whomever you choose for your home addition remodeling has a vision similar to yours.

6. Negotiate a good contract. Don’t start any house addition plans without a written contract. This is both for your protection and so that there are no misunderstandings. Be clear about everything and don’t take anything for granted.

Well, good luck with your home addition plans. If you follow these steps, we can’t guarantee that your remodel will be hiccup free, but you will have done what you can to eliminate most of the big speed bumps.
