Barrier Treatment to prevent entry: The best solution for termite problem is to stop their entry before they enter property and cause any damage. There is a range of products available for this purpose. We only use the most recognised products such as Termidor , Preimise, Altriset etc. depending on the respective case and budget.
Treatment of the active termites: If termite activity is found in the property, a thorough inspection has to be conducted and then a proper method of treatment is decided. Each case could be unique and the treatment is decided accordingly by an expert. Remember only common thing found in termite attack cases is that all cases are unique and different to each other.
Although repellent Termiticides could be cost effective sometimes, but we believe non repellent chemicals action to be better for termite management, however if situation warrants we do use repellents as well
