Subterranean termites can potentially invade your home regardless of what it is constructed of. They are a threat across every part of the United States except Alaska, but Florida is included in one the highest risk areas. Damage caused by termites is not covered by homeowner’s insurance. Termite damage can go undetected for years costing homeowners thousands of dollars in damage.

Subterranean Termite Treatment
Bora-Care Wood Treatment provides prevention and control of Termites, Carpenter Ants, Powderpost Beetles and Decay Fungi. Bora-care can be used on all cellulosic materials including wood, plywood, particle board, paper, oriented strand board (OSB), cardboard, and wood composite structural components one time treatment, stays in wood for forever, should be applied to all exposed wood, and has no residual.
Soil Treatment (treatment of concrete slabs)
The soil underneath and around the concrete slab must be treated with the termiticide before the concrete slab is poured. The termiticide must be applied after installation of the sub-slab fill material. A termiticide is then applied to the fill material. In addition, a vertical barrier must be established around foundation elements adjacent to slabs.
A continuous termiticide barrier is established in the soil adjacent to foundation elements (in accordance with label directions). This treatment is usually performed after the footings have been poured and the foundation walls and /or pillars have been built. Alternatively, the pest control operator may trench and rod into the trench or trench along the foundation walls and around pillars and other foundation elements. The termiticide must be applied on all sides of all foundation elements, including chimney bases, foundation walls, pilasters and pillars.
Structural fumigation is a pest control method that involves filling the airspace within a structure with a fumigant. A tarp, or tent, is used over the structure to trap the fumigant inside. The fumigant absorbs into cracks, crevices, and pores in the wood to eliminate pests, such as drywood termites, bed bugs, wood borers, and powderpost beetles. This is also the most effective way to treat for drywood termites once they have infested a structure.
Spot treatments of liquids, granules and dusts are commonly used for combating pest, but are limited in their ability to reach the target sites or pest harborages.
