Termites might be a well-known pest, but not many people understand them, let alone the most current techniques to manage them. Termite control has evolved significantly in recent years, and many pest control firms are utilizing Drill and Inject Technique for treatment, versus traditional insecticide sprays. This publication will help consumers understand the various approaches, in order to make a more informed purchasing decision for pest management of termites. TERMITE BASICS Subterranean termites, the variety common to Tamilnadu and most other states, live below ground in cooperative, intermingling colonies. The colonies are decentralized entities occupying multiple nesting and feeding sites, interconnected by underground tunnels. Termite colonies can be quite large, consisting of hundreds of thousands to millions of individuals occupying areas of up to half an acre. Smaller colonies may contain fewer individuals, with a foraging footprint no bigger than a bedroom. In some cases, larger but fewer colonies may be present; in others, individual colonies may be smaller and more numerous. In residential settings, the termite colony or colonies responsible for inflicting damage may actually be located in a neighbor's yard, rather than around or beneath the house that is infested.

Q: Why are infestations often discovered during March - May? A: Spring typically is when large numbers of winged termites, known as "swarmers, " emerge inside homes. In nature, termites swarm to disperse and start new colonies. Triggered by warmer temperatures and rainfall, the winged termites emerge from the colony and fly into the air. The swarmers then drop to the ground, shed their wings, pair off with a mate, and attempt to begin new colonies in the soil. Few swarmers emerging outdoors survive to start new colonies. Swarmers emerging indoors are incapable of eating wood, seldom survive, and are best removed with a vacuum. They do, however, indicate that an infestation is present.

Q Does the whole house need treatment, or can they just treat where they see termites A : Subterranean termite colonies may contain many thousands of individuals foraging in numerous directions. For this reason, localized spot treatments are usually a gamble except in cases of warranty-related retreatment. Most reputable pest control firms will not warrant spot treatments, since it is likely that termites will eventually find other points of entry into the building. Many companies do offer what are termed perimeter applications, using a liquid product such as Premise. Typically, this involves treatment around the entire exterior of the home, and spot treating any infested or high-risk interior areas. Due to the reliability of such treatments, most companies also offer a warranty in the event termites return. Such warranties usually stipulate that the company will return and retreat the affected area(s) at no additional charge provided the annual renewal is maintained. It is a bit of a gamble to purchase any termite treatment without an ongoing service agreement.
