Pre-Construction Termite Control
Pre-construction termite control is a major selling point for new properties on the West Coast. The fear created by the thought of a termite infestation far outweighs those of ants, cockroaches and rodents. This is because termites can cause serious structural damage to properties which is not covered by insurance.
Termites attack all wood based materials including, cupboards, floors, door & window frames and even the roof rafters. A termite infestation typically goes unnoticed for a long period as the little white ants stay well hidden. Once discovered, the damage can already be extensive!
On the West Coast, pre-construction termite control is essential as the climate promotes the infestation of both harvester and subterranean termites. All new construction projects should have a termite treatment conducted prior to the laying of concrete slabs and foundations. This includes residential dwellings, commercial buildings and industrial warehouses. Our pre-construction pest control services include treating the soil with a termiticide. The soil poisoning treatment eliminates the structure as a food source to nearby colonies by creating a physical barrier, ensuring long lasting termite control.
National Building Regulations and Standards: ACT 103 of 1977 “The foundations of all buildings to be treated against termites and pests”
- The installation of Eagle Eye™ bird scarer’s. These are used for bird removal in large areas such as hospitals to harmlessly relocate rather than exterminate birds. The birds are irritated by the reflected light beams and struggle to fly or land.
- Bird spikes are used for bird removal along ledges, gable walls and A/C units to prevent birds from perching or nesting in these areas.
- Physical barriers such as netting or building materials are used to prevent birds from entering buildings or roofs.
Our pest control specialists are trained and experienced in the process of soil poisoning. We are fully licensed with the Department of Agriculture, use only termiticides registered under ACT36 of 1947 and are a member of the South African Pest Control Association (SAPCA)
