Termites are social insects, live in a highly organized colony consist of different casts that perform distinctly different duties. There are 4 casts King & Queen, reproductive, Soldiers, and Workers, termites communicate in the form of chemical message (trophallaxis) among them. termiteThe Queen & King :They live in nest and mate time to time, queen produce eggs up to 70,000 daily. Reproductive: dark color have wings as adult called swarmer fly from home nest and form new colony. Soldiers: light color with large head they responsible to protect colony by ants & others. Workers:cream color, soft body & blind, the numerous cast in termite colony and responsible to feed all colony, Liquid Termiticide Soil Barrrier Treatment Pre-Construction Termite Control & Proofing: Foundation stage treatment): A horizontal chemical barrier should be established at early foundation stage to avoid termite infestation in future, this process apply as termiticde showering into foundation surface & walls of pits because termite worker can gain access into building from foundation pillars, treated soil around pillars act as barrier as termite touches they got killed and followers termite turn move from access into building structure. Plinth Level (Sub-Flooring Stage): The 2nd stage of liquid termiticide solution should be treated when earth back fillings, compaction and watering have been completed to further protect building structure from termite infestation in future, but termiticide solution should be applied inside all the areas including sewerage lines and outside peripheral of building structure. Wood Treatment: The 3rd stage is that all wooden fixtures (door & window frames, false ceiling, paneling etc.) should be treated with the chemical solution to further prevention from termite damages. This treatment work as triple check one in the soil & second one filling of the cracks and third one on the wooden fixtures.. Post-Construction Termite Control & Proofing: Post-construction termite control process is required on the following Pre-construction termite control process has been expired The signs of termite infestation has observed As Preventive measure to protect property Drilling Process (vertical chemical barrier): A vertical chemical barrier establish at ground floor by drilling holes 1 to 1.5 feet deep with distance of 2 to 4 feet in the floor to inject the termiticide solution in each hole, as solution reach at one hole surface and spread out to meet another hole solution to form an underground barrier around building to prevent from termite access into building for lasting period. Wooden Floor Treatment: In case of wooden floor a termiticide lacquer apply at the corners, junction of wall and the floor, moreover any crack or crevices fill with past mix termiticide with adhesive material. Lacquer Treatment: All cracks in the floor & along the walls fill with special binding agent made with termiticide, to avoid termites to getting into the building. This technique will be used as spot treatment and only be applied area where the termite movement is seen in the middle of the walls. That area will be scratched to see the extent of termite movement then followed with the application of termiticide. Concealed wiring treatment: In most of the cases, termites travel in between the colony and the building through electricity wiring. To check the movement, an oil-based solution is poured in all sockets and followed with the filling or clogging of the holes with cotton swab dipped in concentrated termiticide. Dusting: The dusting technique is applied under the carpets along the walls, in cracks & crevices. The dust clings to the surfaces and wooden surfaces that remains affective there until it is physically removed from the surface and if removed there should be reapplication. Termite Control Dusting Treatment: The dusting termite control process is used in both pre-construction & post-construction termite control treatments as same as liquid barrier but in dusting is powder based termViews: 585
