Dusting termites involves puffing a dust into termite mud leads to coat the termites present in the dust which is then carried back along the leads and transferred to other termites along the way. In order for dusting to be effective, a significant amount of termites have to be coated with dust, this is a long and meticulous process that requires a high degree of activity in the leads.
Due to it’s expanding nature, a termiticide foam is typically be used to treat areas that would otherwise be difficult to effectively apply termiticide to control termites, such as wall cavities and other hard to access areas.
The soil surrounding the perimeter and sub-floor of the building is chemically treated to eradicate termites trying to gain entry inside the building. This is often known as a Chemical Barrier or Treated Zone and dependent upon the soil type, the slab construction and sub-floor situation this treatment may not be ideal for a chemical treatment.
