Here’s How Pre-Construction Soil Treatments Can Protect Your Investment!

Living in South Florida, termites are not only annoying but a troubling problem for your home or office. They can destroy your property and the damages can result in costly repairs. To avoid this from happening to your future home or office, look to Accurate Pest Control for pre-construction soil treatments to help protect all new structures from Subterranean Termite infestations.

 

To avoid a termite infestation in your Plantation home or office, it’s in your best interest to take preventative measures before your commercial or residential structure is built. At Accurate Pest Control, we offer pre-construction soil treatments to help protect all new structures from Subterranean Termite infestations. This soil treatment creates a termite barrier that goes in before the concrete is poured. This treatment is required by the Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Entomology and Pest Control and is recommended to be re-treated every five years around the perimeter of existing structures.

 

In the state of Florida, this pre-construction soil treatment is a requirement for all new commercial and residential structures being built for the prevention of Subterranean Termite infestations. However, only a company that holds a Termite Category Commercial Pesticide Applicator license in Florida may perform this termite treatment. If you’re looking to build a commercial or residential structure, you should go with a professional that not only has this license but also has the proper equipment and experience in this field. Accurate Pest Control has a truck equipped with a 100-gallon spray rig to provide this pre-construction soil treatment. We also have the experience to accommodate the tight time frames and multiple pours of concrete that are normally required for large commercial or residential termite treatments.

 

The first step in our pre-construction soil treatment is to grade the level of the soil and ensure all of the plumbing and structural fixtures are in place. To properly mix and apply the termite treatment, a minimum temperature of 45 degrees Fahrenheit for 6 hours and a wind speed below 10 MPH are required. This preventive pre-construction termite treatment is made of a premixed, residual termiticide formulation that is mixed with water. To spray the formulation onto the soil, our professionals will apply approximately 1/10th of a gallon of the formulation per square foot of soil that will be covered with concrete slab and injected into the soil that abuts the foundation wall and footer. This premixed material is applied using our 100-gallon tank and power spray equipment. Depending upon the size of the job, our professionals may need to make several separate concrete pours, and the termite treatment is done within 24 hours of each pour.

 

Once your residential structure is built, you may find that although the termites do not invade your home, other insects and rodents are destroying your lawn.
