Termite pre-treatment to new structures is one of the things that everybody should do. It is so cheap, and so effective, when you compare it to post construction treatments, but you’d be surprised as to how few buildings are actually pre-treated. Wise and savvy architects always specify pre-treatment, knowledgeable builders include it in every structure they erect, and prospective buyers should demand it for any new house they buy or build.
Pre-treatment is far better than post treatment. Post treatment (after you get termites) is actually a “spot” treatment. You can drill a thousand holes, but there will still be places you can’t reach, no matter how hard the exterminator tries. With a proper pre-treatment, the soil next to the foundations is treated with a termiticide and is sealed in after the foundations are in place.
Termite pre-treatment to new structures is required by law. Pest-Logic proudly offers Sentricon termite baiting systems as the most effective and long term certified pre-treatment service. Not only is this service green (no liquid insecticide is being used) but the use of the Sentricon system grants ½ LEED point for builders. Unlike conventional soil pre-treats, the Sentricon system does not degrade, or break down, over time.
