Are Termite Treatments safe? A silent Insect which is a danger to home

Published on september 18, 2020

What are Termites

Termite is insects that evolved from cockroaches. Ermites typically feed on dead plant material and cellulose, usually in the form of wood, leaf litter, soil, or animal dung. Termite is the most found insects on earth having its presence in every continent except Antarctica. There are about 2,000 known termite species in the world.

Termite Control services offers unique solutions by providing distinctive Termite Treatment options for pest control. The amount of Termite that continues to invade homes is increasing every day. Termites are known as “quiet destroyers” in view of their capacity to bite through wood, flooring, and backdrop undetected. Every year, termites cause about $5 billion in property harm.

Termite treatment is difficult and time-consuming.


  • To do a barrier treatment, you have to find every possible way that termites could get at the wood in a house - and treat each and every way with a termiticide that’s going to stay in place for a long period of time.
  • Depending on how the house is constructed, what the foundation is like, etc., this may involve things like drilling holes into the foundation and using a high-pressure spray rig that can coat the entire void space with a layer of termiticide.
  • This requires a lot of termiticide - 50–100 gallons of properly-mixed solution is not uncommon. The chemical cost alone can be 83,000 Pakistani Rupees.


Some of these situations can be controlled by better protecting your home from these sneaky insects, while other situations are quite simply unavoidable due to the area you live in and the amount of termites and other pests that are ever present in your environment.

Termite Control Process


Termite Control Step 1: Drilling Holes

  • Identifying the correct spots for drilling so that any gas, water or electrical pipes are not damaged during the Termite Control Treatment of your house or building, wherever you are facing the termite infestation.
  • The holes are dug deep enough so that the best Termite Control chemical can reach Termite/Deemak colony in the soil. The objective for our Termite Control service is to create a chemical barrier where soil meets cement.
  • It is important to have well trained applicators who can drill holes in the floor without breaking the expensive marble or tiles.


Termite Control Step 2: Using the Best Termite Control Chemical

  • Injecting the latest termite proofing chemical which has Fipronil in it, into these holes to eliminate underground colonies and create a barrier which termites or Deemak cannot cross.
  • Using the best chemical for Termite Control solution is higher than other solutions in Pakistan.
  • The chemical we use is safe for residential use as well and has lower toxicity which helps in protecting the environment in cities like Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad where Termite infestation is damaging homes.


Termite Control Step 3 - Injecting Chemical & Closing the Holes

  • Inserting termite control chemical in these holes through a High Pressure machines which have been imported to provide Termite Control in Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad. These holes are then closed with cement which matches color of the floor.
  • Finally, we fumigate the entire home to get rid of Mud Tubes on the walls. Termite mud tubes are the most common indication of a termite infestation in your home.

Termites Can Cause Severe Damage to Human Homes


Although termites are ecologically beneficial in that they break down detritus to add nutrients to soil, the same feeding behaviors that prove helpful to the ecosystem can cause severe damage to human homes. Because termites feed primarily on wood, they are capable of compromising the strength and safety of an infested structure. Termite damage can render structures unlivable until expensive repairs are conducted.

Structural property damage

  • Homes constructed primarily of wood are not the only structures threatened by termite activity. Homes made from other materials may also host termite infestations, as these insects are capable of traversing through plaster, metal siding and more. Termites then feed on cabinets, floors, ceilings and wooden furniture within these homes.
  • Because termites are often not identified before considerable damage has occurred, it is advised that homeowners experiencing a termite infestation contact a pest control professional before attempting to address the problem on their own. Professionals will conduct an inspection in order to correctly identify the problem and will then discuss possible avenues of treatment with homeowners.

Signs of drywood termite damage

  • Drywood termites build their colonies within wooden structures on which they feed. They can be found inside of walls or furniture.
  • Drywood termite infestations may only become apparent after a colony has burrowed so deeply into an infested item that the veneer cracks and the maze-like tunnels beneath become visible.
  • Such damage is common in antique furniture pieces. Should this occur on new furniture or the floors or walls of your home, contact a pest control professional to discuss the severity of your infestation, as well as extermination options.

Why Do Termites Eat Wood?


Termites eat wood to derive the cellulose and nutrients they need to live. Termites have protozoa and bacteria in their gut that allow them to break down the cellulose fibers in wood, which is difficult for other creatures to digest. These organisms turn those cellulose fibers into a nutritious meal and allow termites’ access to a food source that's largely ignored by other species.

What Types Of Wood Do Termites Prefer?


  • Subterranean termites like to eat the soft fibers of springwood and leave the harder summerwood behind. Wood eaten by subterranean termites resembles a honeycomb, and many of its galleries contain dirt and fecal particles.
  • Drywood termites seek out dry wood such as the wood in your home's framing, structural timbers, hardwood floors and furniture. They do not make contact with the soil and are able to glean the water they need directly from the wood they inhabit. When drywood termites are eating wood, the damage looks smooth.
  • Dampwood termites like moist wood and often can be found eating dead or decaying tree stumps and logs. They rarely infest buildings.
