Termite Treatment

Termite-Fact Sheet 

   

3,50,000 formosan, termite can consume 19 linear feet of pine studs per year.

60,000 eastern subterranean termites can consume 3 linear feet of pine studs per year.

Colonies of formosan termite contain 1,000,000 to 7,000,000 workers.

Colonies of subterranean termite contain 200,000 to 5,000,000 workers.

Formosans can cover 21,780 sq.ft. in a colony.

Subterranean termite can cover 14,520 sq.ft. in a colony.

A colony or nest of subterranean termite may be up to 18-20 ft. below the soil surface to protect it from extreme weather conditions.

Termites are undisputedly the most destructive of all structural pests. The National Pest Control Association estimates that termites cause 1.5 billion dollars of damage to structures annually and that an additional 1 billion dollars is spent on their treatment.

 

Pre Construction Treatment

a. Pre Construction Anti Termite Treatment: IS: 6313: 1981-1991 (Part II)

 

As per the Indian Standard Specification the above treatment is undertaken in five different stages as the construction work progresses. Which are as under –

 

a.

Bottom and sides of trenches

b.

Backfill in immediate contact with foundation

c.

Junction of wall and floor

d.

Top surface of plinth filling

e.

External perimeter of building

 

Post Construction Treatment:

 

b. Post Construction Anti Termite Treatment: IS: 6313: 1981-91 (Part III)

 

Under this treatment the site will be treated as under-

 

a.

Drilling/Trenching will be done along with the outer periphery of the building and the same will be filled with termiticide solution of required concentration.

b.

Drilling will be done along with the inner periphery of the building and the same will be filled with termiticide solution of required concentration.

c.

Drilling will be done on recommended distance to the existing wooden structures of the building.

d.

Spray will be done on new wooden structures, if any.

e.

Spray will be done on the walls of the building.

 
 

c. Wood & Furniture treatment

 

The most damaging animals that attack wooden structures are the termites. The beetles are the next most important group of insects, which attack wood. There are 2 kinds –

Those that will re-infest the wood they have emerged from until the wood can no longer be used and must be replaced.

Those that emerge from wood after it has been milled and installed for whatever use it was intended, but for one or another reason can not attack the same piece of wood again.

 
 

Source of infestation

 
   

Cracks in foundation permit hidden points of entry from soil,

Wood framing members in contact with earth fill under concrete slab,

Debris support termite colony until large population attacks super structure,

Foundation wall to low permits wood to contact soil,

Footing too low or soil, causes wood soil contact,

Mud sill and / or posts in contact with soil,

Porch steps in contact with soil, also watch for ladders,

Improper maintenance of soil piled against pier footing,

Wood girder entering recess and foundation wall,

Vegetation against siding and foundation,

Unusual construction conditions
