Termite Protection for Poured Concrete Slabs, Crawl Spaces, and Basements

You’re probably more familiar with this termite. Drywood termites, or winged termites, leave their colony to build a new one.

People often confuse them for winged ants.

If you see them near your house, chances are they are looking to make your home their new home.


Whether you are building a new home, or you’re a professional builder, most mortgage lenders require a termite pre-treatment. And with good reason!

Virginia is in the moderate to heavy termite zone. So there’s not much point in building a new house if it’s going to be destroyed by subterranean 
termites or drywood termites.


Formosan Subterranean Termite


Anti-Termite Treatment

The Formosan subterranean termite is often called the super termite because it wreaks destruction so quickly.

One colony can contain several million termites. Other subterranean termite species have several hundred thousand termites in a single colony.

No matter what species it is, their ability to consume wood quickly is incredible.

This invasive termite forages up to 300 
feet in the soil. An adult Formosan can eat as much as 13 ounces of wood in a single day!

1. We use a highly effective liquid termiticide soil treatment

2. To prevent mold growth and damage, we use Boracare® Borate

3. We also use an in-ground bait system to control termites

    before they get to your building

Pre-Construction Treatment for Termites, Staunton

The best time to apply termiticide for a concrete slab house is before the foundation has been poured.

The foundation block, as well as the footing for the block or poured concrete wall, are treated on both the outside and the inside. Crawl spaces and basements should also be treated.

Soil treatments are also performed to keep termites out. This includes digging trenches around the house’s foundation and applying termite control products.

Rods and drills can also be used to access the foundation and apply termite treatment.

By treating the soil and the wood, your home is protected by some 
of nature’s most invasive termite species.


The Super Termite

In as little as three months, these invaders can seriously damage a home.

Light sensitive, subterranean termites make mud tubes, eating holes into the wood, protecting themselves from light.

But they don’t just like residential homes. Subterranean termites will eat boats, commercial buildings, high rise condos, and trees.

Drywood Termites

Concrete Slab Foundation
Pre-Construction Termite Treatment

To create a chemical barrier against termites, we spread termiticide around the building and into the soil. This chemical barrier works with the physical barrier to keep termites out.

The most common pre-
construction termite treatment for drywood termites is to coat or soak the wood. This makes the wood less appealing to invading termites. It can even be poisonous to them.

We Can Help!

There are three types of foundations that require different poisoning methods, concrete slab, crawl space and basement.
