PCD - TERMITE TREATMENT

ABOUT TERMITES

Termites live in underground nests deep in the soil. Their basic diet is cellulose, which is the principal constituent of organic wastes and the roots of plants and trees. Once they have eaten naturally occurring sources of cellulose, they look for other, manmade sources, such as wooden structures, furniture, books and clothing. Termites can also attack the plastic insulation of electrical wiring and cables, causing short circuits and irreparable damage to electronic equipment.

Hidden Invaders

No building, whether RCC framed or hollow-block masonry, is safe from termites. Subterranean termites are silent invaders. They can pass through cracks and crevices only 1/64 inch wide and are able to get through slab joints, settlement cracks, expansion joints and electric conduits, and around utility pipes.

Once inside, they move surreptitiously, hidden in their mud shelter tubes. They can silently and systematically eat through your valuable possessions – furniture, clothes, books, documents, paintings, carpets, currency notes, etc.

Air-conditioned buildings provide a particularly favourable environment for termites. Because subterranean termites shun light and air, they normally eat only the inside of the wood. Termite-damaged timber may look perfectly sound on the outside, but be nearly hollow inside. Owners are usually unaware that there are termites until the damage is discovered.

Prolific Breeders

Subterranean termites live in well-organised colonies with a highly developed social order. Each colony consists of a pair of reproductives – referred to as king and queen – workers, soldiers and nymphs. The sole job of the queen is to lay eggs, which are fertilised by the king. The queen can live up to 25 years and lay thousands of eggs each year. The workers do all the work to feed the colony and the soldiers defend the colony against intruders – mostly ants. Nymphs are young termites.

Termite Life Cycle

Termite Treatment

Termites Muscat

Termites are wily, elusive and stubborn.  They multiply fast and, if you destroy them in one place, they will ‘pop up’ in other places with greater vigour and in larger numbers. In fact, any attempt to get rid of them superficially only serves to scatter the infestation.

It requires special knowledge, the right scientific control techniques, sophisticated equipment, trained personnel and professional know-how to tackle an infestation. Only an experienced pest control operator like Muna Noor Pest Control Division can deal effectively with the menace.

Chemical Barrier

Chemical Termite Barrier

Chemical treatment is the only method of termite prevention and control ever proven to be totally effective.

The basic principle of termite control is to treat the soil under the building with chemicals that remain in the soil for a long period and do not allow termites to pass through. This can be achieved through different procedures on buildings under construction or existing buildings.

Pre-Construction Termite Treatment for New Buildings

Termites have been found in new homes as early as four days after construction was completed. The best results are obtained if termite protection measures are included during the early stages of the construction of a building. Pre-construction soil treatment is the ideal method of termite control for buildings under construction. The soil all around the foundations and under the floor slab is first charged with termiticide to seal it. This creates the chemical barrier that termites cannot pass through.

Pre Treatment Termite Solution

Pest Control Division can select appropriate specifications for built-in termite proofing of your building.

Ten-Year Service Guarantee

Termite treatment provides a chemical barrier that has a long life and carries a ten-year service guarantee. We will keep the building free of termites and carry out the necessary treatment to eradicate any infestation that may occur during the guarantee period, at no extra cost to the owner.

Note that this does not mean that, after ten years, the termite treatment becomes ineffective. In many buildings treated with this process, even 20 years later, they remain termite-free.

Post-Construction Treatment for Existing Buildings

Post Termite tretment

Our termite treatment is adapted to take care of termite infestations in existing buildings. The treatment is curative-cum-preventive, and is carried out in graded steps.

Termite post-construction measures consist of injecting chemical toxicants through holes drilled into the floor and wall junctions to simulate conditions similar to laying a chemical barrier below a building as in pre-construction.

Treatment of infested timber and fumigation of termite mud runways are carried out to exterminate subsidiary termite colonies located above the ground level.

Five-Year Guaranteed Service

Post-construction treatment is offered with a five-year guaranteed service contract. Under the contract, we guarantee to keep the premises free of termites during the five-year period.
