report for termite control in US
Despite the potential for damage to the Termimesh, Yates said Termimesh is not only a viable option for utility poles, but for underground cables as well. Though many technicians initially assumed termites would not attack these underground cables if they had no cellulose material to attract and physiologically benefit the termite, Yates provided many examples of termites damaging communication lines and compromising high-voltage cables. In these instances, Yates said, the only real way to treat the problem is to repair the damage and apply a preventive layer, such as Termimesh, to the cables to prevent any recurrences.
Nevertheless, Hardy’s experience with infested stilts has shown that almost any termiticide will work well at treating an infestation in the poles, but the treatment will not have long-lasting effects. His solution is to apply preventive products to the poles after they have been treated and then wrap them. Hardy has his team dig a trench around the base of the poles to a depth of about three feet. At the base, he applies his selected termiticide and then drills into the poles to add a borate or Bora-Care, a borate pre-treat termiticide. Once the trench is filled, he treats the above-ground surface of the pole with Bora-Care. He suggested using products such as Bora-Care, but warned that, when exposed to moisture, they will “back out of the wood,” reducing its effectiveness as a below-surface preventive treatment.
Though these docks create conditions that are conducive to termite infestation, they often also allow for easy termite fumigation. As Scheffrahn explained, water creates a great seal that allows a PMP to perform mini-fumigations. He suggests tarping each infected pole with a light-weight tarp and applying Vikane directly into the poles. With this method, however, PMPs must remember to put up warning signs because the poles become miniature structural infestation and fumigation zones. Scheffrahn, like his colleagues, suggested following the treatment with some type of residual protection to help prevent future infestations.
Finally, PMPs must be aware of how expensive and well maintained many of these boats are, because any damage that occurs during fumigation could result in hefty payouts to the boat owners. As Scheffrahn stated, “You take off your shoes. You wear socks. You don’t want to mess up the paint job because it costs anywhere from $75 to $250,000 to paint one of these [boats].”
Before buying a property, Hardy added, potential homeowners should be aware of the condition the property lot was in before construction began and should ensure that builders used termite prevention so that infestations could not occur during the construction phase. Furthermore, PMPs should work with homeowners and contractors to explain the potential problems that different types of home insulation could cause for inspectors. For instance, liquid foam often seals all boarding, making it impossible to inspect crawlspaces, while foam layers beneath concrete and insulation within walls can hide the extent of wall deterioration that is occurring.
