Advanced Termite Control Treatment

Exterior Drilling of Concrete to Prepare for Treatment

Exterior Drilling of Concrete to Prepare for Treatment

Mug-A-Bug’s advanced termite control treatment will take one day, or less, with very little disruption to your daily routine. Methods vary with each home, depending on the type of slab foundation, basement, construction materials, and the number and type of porches or patios. By digging narrow trenches along exterior foundation walls and sub-slab drilling through the slab surfaces and treating voids, our materials will be applied where they will eliminate termites within your home and any re-entry from termite colonies.

First, all treatment areas must be cleared of furniture and stored items. We measure out 6 -8 inches from the wall. Then we will drill the slab surface every 12 inches around the outer wall in the basement. This treatment will also include the common wall in the garage as well.  If carpet is present, we will roll back the carpet and padding approx 12 inches to gain proper access for drilling.  After drilling is complete, we will then vacuum/sweep away all dust/drilling debris.

Then your product of choice (Premise 75WP or Termidor) is carefully applied to each drill hole, below the slab. Our products are a non-repellent termiticide that create a treated zone/barrier between your home and the termites. Our non-repellent products will not be detected by termites, so they do not know to avoid the treated areas. Foraging termites are the first to confront these non-repellent products, which are then transferred to the rest of the colony — effectively eliminating the colony’s remaining population, to include the queens.

Finally, all the drill holes are plugged and patched with a rubber plug, and are filled with cement, so the area is given a smooth finish and restored back to its original state.  If carpet was rolled back, both padding and carpet will be re-installed to proper fit, and to the best of our ability.
