Termites – The real enemies of progress!

Your home could be under attack right now by not just one attacker but thousands of tiny ‘terrorists’. You can’t see these terrorists but they are there in your house, backyard and maybe even in your furniture. They cause fires and computer breakdowns by chewing cables as they search for wood, they attack concrete/brick buildings through cracks, joints, crevices etc. to reach the wood inside your house. These small ‘terrorists’ are termites, and they cause up to $5 billion a year in damages.

FUN FACT: In the United States termites has been found to cause more damage collectively than tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes or fires put together.

Termites live in colonies, like bees and ants, with an equal number of males and females. These tiny terrorists have been around for 250 million years with about 2800 species existing on the planet. However, humans need to worry about: subterranean termites, also known as ground termites, live underground in groups or colonies; drywood termites, live above ground, preferring to make their homes inside woods and trees; damp wood termites, like to build their colonies in damp, decaying wood; Formosan termites, considered most destructive of all termite types, and originated from China.

Termites require food, moisture, shelter, and optimal temperatures to survive- and the conditions around your house may fit the bill. They normally find their way into a house through its foundation. Once inside, they can wreak havoc on the framework of your home, along with any wood flooring, cabinetry, doorways, windows, and even furniture.

To prevent termites from invading your home you need to do a pre-construction preventive treatment of foundations and post-construction treatment. A treated zone controls all varieties of termites and wood boring beetles. The solution for controlling these tiny ‘terrorists’ is PREMISE 200SC. Premise 200SC controls termite infestation through a unique mode of action known as ‘Domino effect’, leading to the whole colony’s elimination. Apart from pre and post construction, Premise 200SC is also used in the wood preservation, road and runway construction, termite nests, lawns and gardens and tree nurseries.
