Pest control against termites in Prosperita
03 September 2019 | Business
The area seems naturally prone to termites and the problem is exacerbated when inadequate insect treatment of the foundations is done prior to the construction of buildings. Thereafter, insects exploit cracks and joints as buildings age and find it easy to enter buildings and feast on the tasty things that humans bring.
In the past, insect treatment post-constriction required tedious and expensive drilling. However, now Inesfly provides lasting protection with minimal interference due to the micro-encapsulating technology that slowly releases active ingredients over time. The product contains a mixture of several active ingredients as well as an irritant to which the termites and other insects are sensitive to.
In this manner insects that come into contact with the treated area are eradicated and also repels insects to find "greener" pastures elsewhere.
This often results in termites moving from one building to another, so it may be good to talk to your neighbours prior to doing a treatment.
Areas under threat are essentially any premises that contains wood – so basically all premises! Termites will eat their way through concrete to get to your kitchen cupboards and over a long enough period, its bound to happen especially if the termites were there before you were.
Some termite favourites include any joinery, wood pallets, thatch roofing, plants – living or dead – and untreated timber. Also, be careful when buying fire wood for the office or home – you may inadvertently be importing termites into your premises directly from the farm as fire wood is often collected, stored and processed already infested with termites. Best is to buy fumigated wood. Use firewood quickly and store in smaller quantities to reduce the risk of termites becoming permanent residents.
