Termite Control

  • Subterranean termites, the most common kind, live in the soil. There are distinct castes within each colony- the largest group being the workers, blind and wingless they bore galleries in wood.
  • Forage for food and care for other members of the colony. It is the workers , along with newly-hatched nymphs that do the damage to the structure.
  • Soldier termites protect the colony from attack by invaders such as ants. In its final growth stage, the soldier termites acquires a long armored head and large strong jaws.
  • Each colony has one queen or more, whose mission is to lay eggs. These develop into new colony members.
  • There is only one primary queen , but when she dies, secondary queens are often produced.
  • Once a year new members of the winged reproductive caste develops, A single colony may produce several hundreds of these.
  • When environmental conditions are ideal, these new Reproductive members leave the colony in a swarm to seek mates and start new colonies. After flying a short distance, the swarm fall to the ground and break off their wings, locate mates and then seek a small space beneath a rock or wood in direct contact with the soil to begin a new colony.

Termite Control:

This standard gives recommendation for the chemical treatment of soil for the protection of buildings form attack by subterranean termites.

It includes reference to the chemical to be used, lay down the rate of application for usage, and outlines procedures to be followed while the building is under construction or after construction.

Pre-Construction Anti-Termites Treatment:

For the purpose of this standard, the following definitions shall be applied. Soil treatment- this is a process in which soil treatment is applied to a building during the early stages of its construction.

  1. Vertical surface: treatment after the masonry foundation and the retaining walls of the basement come up to ground level.
  2. Horizontal surface: treatment to top surface of plinth below ground slab level.
  3. Around building at ground level: treatment of soil along perimeter of the building after the external walls are completed.

Essential Requirements for Barrier and Method of Application:

Condition of forming-barrier shall be completed under the whole of the structure.

1- Time of application: laying of mass concrete should start when the chemical emulsion has been absorbed by the soil and the surface quite dry.

2- Disturbance: once formed the treated soil barrier shall not be disturbed. If by chance the treated soil disturbed, immediate steps shall be taken to restore the continuity and completeness of the barrier system.

Mud Tube Wood Galleries Wood Galleries

Post-Construction Anti-Termites Treatment


  1. Galleries in wood: Wood damaged by termites has galleries that tend to run with the grain. Although some will cross the grain, these galleries can be distinguished from similar damage caused by other wood infestation insects because they usually contain soil particles instead of sawdust.
  2. Mud Tubes: Are also evidence of infestation. When termites cross concrete and similar surfaces to reach wood, they construct these tubes as a shelter. The tubes are made of soil particles cemented together with saliva and excreted fluid waste.
  3. Soil Passages: Termites feed on wood and cellulose materials, but they also need constant moisture to survive. Colonies usually nest in the soil which provides that moisture.
  4. Moist Wood: wood which is in direct contact with the soil such as under a dirt filled porch, provides the ideal condition for termites.


This standard gives recommendation for the chemical treatment of soil to stop the existing termites from attacking the building.


1- around the building drilling or trenching to be made to allow us to apply the chemical below the slab and near the foundation.

2- inside the building drilling 20 mm holes in the infested places and chemical dilution to be injected to reach the soil below the slab.



Termiticide bait, what is it?

Termiticide baits are highly effective in controlling Termites. Unlike the traditional chemical treatment of Chemical barriers Baits system requires a process and time for the active substance To be distributed throughout all the colony. During the period of supervision and monitoring, the professional is required to follow the process carefully to certify their results. The results are outstanding, the treatment provides permanent coverage and will accomplish the total elimination of the colonies of termites in the treatment area.

TERMIGARD system- guaranteed results

TERMIGARD® System is a slow action termiticide system that achieves total control of a colony by the use of a food bait impregnated with the active ingredient diflubenzuron which, when ingested by the termite, and taking advantage of its own biology, transfers its harmful effects to the colony until completely eliminated.

* The extraordinary appetite and attraction for termites Bait cellulose support has been demonstrated in studies conducted by independent laboratories, approved and dedicated specifically for wood and protection.

TERMIGARD Benefits System


It takes advantage of special biology and Behavior of termites facilitating the action of the active ingredient within the colony, and reaching all members without causing alarm, which could lead to escape.


Unlike chemical based treatments, by their Selective effect, is environmentally friendly, and is harm less to people and animals. Does not produce odors or alteration of groundwater, If used under the TERMIGARD® control protocol.


It acts on the entire colony, not only on the Insects in contact with the insecticide.

DIFLUBENZURÓN-how it works

The active substance is an inhibitor DIFLUREN- ZURON of chitin synthesis (IGR) acting in the body of the termite, preventing chitin production, basic molecule for skeletal development termite, altering and preventing the molting process termite, which weaken against the natural depredators. The cellulose support is impregnated with this exclusive active ingredient, which achieves the total eradication of the colony.

The process is based on the social behavior of termite divided into castes. Workers are responsible for providing food throughout the mound, by transmission by feeding (transmission meal mouth- Mouth or anus - mouth).

This behavior allows the material transport actively distributed among the entire population. The bait is consumed by workers and distributed to the whole mound, staying in the body of the termites. When termites begin molting cycle that happens several times reaching adulthood, the DIFLUBEN- ZURON act on the organism preventing proper for- motion of the exo-chitin backbone, forming thus evolved insect anomalous form usually dies, or in any case not be able to continue its vital cycle. Thus achieving the total disappearance of the termite mound.

TERMIGARD system more than 10 years of success

TERMIGARD® SYSTEM, The system has performed hundreds of treatments nationwide for over a decade with extraordinary results, both in private and public buildings and equity interest. The successful outcome is due to:

  • The merger of the effectiveness of the extraordinary diflubenzuron with the palatability of the cellulose used in the baits.
  • Active ingredient (Diflubenzuron), recognized Internationally, for their effectiveness in controlling termites
  • Listed in the European Biocidal Products Directive sol.
  • System approved and now under evaluation CTBA + of France.

The methodological process


The system bases its results on the knowledge of the behavior of the termite, the medium in which it operates, the use of a bait is excellent palatability and effective active ingredient for termite control. The system proposes a process of establishing performance 3 phases of action.


THE STUDY, is essential for success. It is the most important phase in addition to identify damage analyzes which factors are that have led to termite attack. Once the study is made, we can establish the action parameters.


INSTALLATION, can be done any time of year, But for immediate results is best performed during Spring period that has increased termite activity.


THE CONTROL, once established contact with the colony CONTROL phase starts. Stations and critical areas will be reviewed periodically to achieve the elimination of the colony.





  • First, a study should be conducted to identify where in addition the damage to the affected building is, and will take into account the environ- mental characteristics and urban environment, values such as humidity and temperature, and the presence of cellulose-based materials, with esta- blish criteria for the installation of stations and baits.
  • Once the action plan is completes will proceed to the installation Sta- tions. These will be installed outside the perimeter of the building concerned especially covering the target area, at a distance greater than 5 m. between them.
  • Stations must have a wooden tester to enable monitoring and facilitating contact with the termite.
  • Having established contact with the termite, will join the station is the bait and will be filled with the biocide substrate. The Station must be in top condition to avoid excessive moisture, which can cause loss of connection. The moisture in the feedlot must be stable and regular.
  • The bait and replacements should be made with the greatest possi- ble care, facilitating connection and avoiding any spare bait disturbance that may alter the behavior of termites.
  • In urban areas with concrete floor you can replace the flat green plastic lid with an adjustable metal lid with safety lock. To facilitate the installation you must remove the outer flanges.
  • Feedlots should be reviewed periodically, once a month. It is impor- tant to maintain control of the feedlot to keep in touch with the termite. Once we record the removal colony, feedlots may be used as monitoring units In order to control the lice.


  • The Wall Box (wall station) shall be installed to intercept the passage of termites, adapting to each SITUATION either on walls, beams, door and window frames or other areas with damaged woodwork.
  • The bait should occupy the entire interior of the station and create the best conditions to create the microclimate necessary for colonization, with special care to maintain a constant level of humidity.
  • Punch bag with various punctures and make a small cut in the inner sheet so as to facilitate direct contact with the bait cord activity.
  • Wet baits with the help of a vaporizer and distilled water, to facilitate connection with the termite feedlot and guarantee consumption therein.
  • The bait and replacements should be performed with as much care as possible, facilitating the connection of the new replacement bait and avoiding any disturbance that can alter the behavior of termites.
  • If the attack is not displayed, but we are aware of activity, it is advisable to use headphones to identify its location. connection with termite.
  • In these cases, you can install display stations by facilitating use of wicks connection with termite.




  • The TERMIGARD® System, results based on knowledge Termite behavior and environmental where it operates. Besides having excellent bait palatability and active DI- FLUBENZURON. During the treatment process it is indispensable to maintain continuous monitoring by the pro- fissional.
  • It will be noted that during the first few months there will be a consumer of pulp and this consumption will gradually decrease as a result of the weakening of the colony.
  • However there are a number of signals in termite behavior that will indicate your sunset.
  • Slowing termite activity.
  • Bleaching termite’s abdomen. The cuticle termites is generally transparent and its brownish color is due to food. As the termite consume the bait you will observe pigmentation changes (more white) in individuals of the colony produced by the bait substrate used.
  • Investment of caste in the colony. As workers are dying from lack of food forces the other castes to leave in search of food, detecting presence of soldiers and neotechnic and lower castes, and the percentage increase of soldiers at the stations.
  • Occurrence of mites per termite impairment in workers and soldiers.
