Termite Treatment Before Construction
The majority of builders are aware that their responsibility is to construct the buildings and structures for which they are responsible. However, there are certain things about which they may not be aware. In this article we will look at some of these things.
There is a vast variety of pests that can infest a building and as such it is important to take steps to ensure they do not get into your building. Pests can be removed by using the right type of pest control and as we shall see in later articles, the termite treatment before building construction is one such method.
There are many different types of termites including the “American Termite” which are particularly prevalent in Florida. They are quite common and it is very important to use the correct pest control to get rid of them. The “Trap-and-Swat” method has been used in Australia but there are other methods which are less damaging and also do not have the risk of killing all the termites in an area.

Other common pest infestations include bed bugs, roaches and cockroaches and often these pests are not seen until the damage they cause to a structure becomes noticeable. Therefore it is important to treat before the damage becomes apparent. The most common termite treatments are “termiticides” which are applied to the structure or crawl space and which kill the termites within hours. Although this does mean that they are killed off the structure will often be destroyed as well so it is necessary to do Termite Treatment before Building Construction in this case as it may not be possible to bring in specialist equipment to complete this task.
There are other types of Termite Treatment before Construction which can be used and they include using liquid pesticides, including “Diatomaceous Earth” which is a substance that can prevent further development of termites. Another termite treatment before construction is “Green Roof”. This is also used on buildings and it means that no new soil or building material is required and this means that the construction site is free from pests. It can also be used on roofs and will work by keeping the soil below it moist and also reducing the amount of moisture on the roof.
Pests will often infest a building and it is important to do Termite Treatment before Construction in order to remove the threat. If a professional pest control company is not used in this instance then the site should be cleaned up in the most effective way possible with a solution containing a low level of pesticide. In addition, it is important to treat any water damage immediately in order to avoid further infestation.
