In a video about pest control by Safeguard Pest Control Sunshine Coast on YouTube called “Termite Treatments Process”, they talk about pest maintenance treatments and their safety protocols. They say the first step is to have a termite inspection and that they will give you a report and discuss their treatment plan for your home. They stress that home treatment plans do not work at killing or eliminating termites.
Termites build nests underground, in trees, decks, retaining walls, and under homes. Their tunnels go underground, and this is how they enter your home. Professional chemical treatments are the best way to eliminate an infestation.
They have chemical termite barriers where they dig a trench around your home and its foundation. They spray chemical compound into the soil to kill termites. They drill holes in concrete and tiles and apply the chemical to this area too. This is one of their pest maintenance treatments. The chemicals they use are safe and designed to eliminate termites.
Another treatment they offer is to put a hose around the foundations that spay chemicals into the ground and can be used later if needed. A safer pest maintenance treatment for termites is termite baiting systems. They dig holes and put these baits into the ground to attract termites. It has chemicals and wood that, when ingested, kill the termites. These baits can be put above or below the ground. These are some of the pest maintenance treatments offered to customers.
