Termites are small soft busied insects, which many people call “white ants” however, though they look similar, they are not related. Termites live and work together in large groups known as colonies. They are divided in to various groups known as: Queen, King, Soldiers, Workers and Alates. The Queen is the reproductive sources of the colony, she ensures replenishment and further growth of the colony.
The objective of termite baiting is to place a food source that contains toxicant. Foraging termites that find the baits will consume and share the food containing the toxicant with its nest mates including the Queen and the King through a process called trophallaxis. Elimination process may require approximately 2 to 12 weeks depending on the size of the colony, typically between 6 to 8 weeks. Termite baiting system offers two types of systems, namely above-ground baiting system and in-ground baiting system.

The objective of the treatment is to termite proof a building against termite infestation by creating a Termicidal barrier around the perimeter ground beams and columns of the building. In order to reach the soil under the slab of the building, it is necessary to drill holes through the slab and then injection of Termicidal chemical is applied.

Preventive soil treatment is carried out when the property is being built. Termiticide solution will be sprayed over the soil for the entire built up area include the perimeter and sub-floor of a building to eradicate termites attempting to gain entry into the building through a treated soil area.
