Selecting the right termite treatment isn’t a problem when hiring Action Termite & Pest Control because we’ll only provide you with the best option. Curious on the different treatments for eliminating termites? Listed below are a few of the most common.
- Full Drill Treatment – The best option for a floating slab constructed home with a large amount of termite activity. Involves not only treating the exterior of the foundation around the entire perimeter of the home but also drilling through the foundation to treat the interior side of the foundation.
- Perimeter Treatment – The most common termite treatment which involves drilling attached slabs including the garage as well as trenching the soil along the foundation.
- Soil + Problem Area – This is your typical termite treatment on a post tension home where the type of construction doesn’t allow for drilling into any slabs or the garage.
