Termites Commonly known as white ants, termites destroy valuable property, documents, furniture and furnishings…anything that contains cellulose, silently and swiftly, before you even become aware of the damage done. Termites infest and breed underground, in the soil. They crawl up through the minute cracks and crevices in the foundation and the walls of your building. As they march forward, they build mud channels to provide themselves with darkness and higher humidity which they require to survive. When you notice such marks on your walls you get an indication that your house is under attack by white ants. United Pest control provides the best termite pest control treatment with the help of latest technology and as per the IS standards
To stop and prevent the movement of termites from the ground, holes are drilled from inside your premises at the junction of the wall and the floor at an angle of 45 degrees. The holes are drilled along the side of the entire outer wall at approximately 500 mm (20 inches) intervals. The termite control insecticide is then poured into these holes to soak the masonry. If your premises are on the ground floor, the partition walls are also treated. The termite control drilling operation is not carried out on the partition walls above the ground floor because the RCC slabs act as a mechanical barrier and the termites cannot penetrate them. Holes drilled at the base of the wall premises.
The wood work in contact with the masonry in a building is particularly susceptible to termite infestation, such as door and window frames, wall panels, wardrobes, shelves, wooden cupboards, etc.
Anti Termite Pest Control Treatment - Protective treatment for these areas is provided as follows:
Holes of diameter 12 mm (1/2" approx.) are drilled slanting towards the core of woodwork at a distance of 500 mm (20"). Insecticide is then poured into these holes. Special oil based chemical is sprayed on all vulnerable unpainted woodwork. .
A chemical toxic barrier is created between the termites in the soil and the building that has to be protected. This is achieved in the following manner:
If there exists a concrete cover or masonry apron around the walls of your building, holes are drilled as close as possible to the plinth wall about 300mm (1ft) apart from each other and 300mm deep. Water diluted insecticide (Premise- Bayer) is then poured inside the holes with a rate of 300-500ml/hole, so that it reaches the soil form a chemical barrier which eliminates the termites present there and to stop them from re-infesting. If your building is on pillars, the holes are drilled around the pillars and insecticide poured into the soil. If there is loose earth around the walls of your building, trenches of a 'shovel width' are dug, exposing the external surfaces of the foundation wall upto a depth of 500 mm from the ground level. .

The drilling operation is not carried out on the partition walls above the ground floor because the RCC slabs act as a mechanical barrier and the termites cannot penetrate them.
Termites, which originate from the soil, are controlled effectively when your building is treated at the ground level as per the above mentioned method. But, as an additional precaution, the outer walls on the first floor are also subjected to the masonry drilling treatment. Above the first floor, the drilling operation is carried out at a distance of approximately three fts distance. All flats will be treated. Staircase will be drilled upto second floor.
Further, on all floors, wood work like doors and windows frames in contact with the masonry in a building, which are highly susceptible to termite attack are also protected by treating them with the spot drilling operation. Spot treatment of spraying on infested areas in the walls and ceiling is also carried out. On completion of the initial treatment, about 80% of the termites are eliminated from your building. The remaining termite which is hidden in the walls is eliminated within 6 months, during the check up visits of our operator. In remote cases, it may even take 2 years to eradicate the termites.
