Safegard Against Termites and Pre-Treat Your Wood
Termite pre-treatment to new structures is something everybody should really consider when building. It is cheap and effective compared to post construction treatments. Wise and savvy architects always specify pre-treatment, knowledgeable builders include it in every structure they erect and prospective buyers should demand it for any new house they buy or build.
Pre-treatment is far better than post treatment. Post treatment, after you get termites, is actually a spot treatment. We can drill a thousand holes, but there will still be places that are out of reach. With a proper pre-treatment, the soil next to the foundations is treated with a termiticide and is sealed in after the foundations are in place.
The treatment is applied during construction, at certain times, depending on the type of structure. Properly treated structures are sometimes able to resist termites for a much longer period of time, and termiticides applied during construction are generally applied to areas that are unavailable after construction is complete. This makes pre-treatments highly more preferable to post treatments.
