Therefore, protecting the home against termites is essential. This can best be done during the pre-construction phase of the house and is provided in the foundation after the soil has been excavated and exposed.

Treatment involves providing a layer of chemical for the purpose, on the exposed surfaces of the soil in the foundation. The layer creates a barrier due to which termites are unable to make their way into the foundation and later into other parts of the structure including wooden doors and windows, furniture, etc.

precaution

The chemicals are available in the market in concentrated form and are toxic in nature. Great care must be taken when using anti-termite treatments as they can cause injury to the body, both externally and internally.
