About Localized Treatments

Localized treatments, also known as “spot” treatment, are ideal for eliminating termites in isolated areas. Our termite inspector will inspect your property and recommend the proper treatment. 

Last Fumigation over ten years?

We recommend that the primary treatment is complete tent fumigation if the house hasn’t been tent fumigated in the last ten years. Here at Gentry & Associates, we want to ensure that your home is free of termites and under control. Afterwhich, a yearly program is in place. We will complete a thorough termite inspection and show in the report our findings. Periodically, we find a home that only needs local treatment even after ten years. Typically due to proper termite inspections.

Other Treatment Options for Termites

There are many options for localized termite spot treatments. Some include the following:

  • Transferable termiticides
  • Residual termiticides
  • Foam penetrant
  • Heat treatments

For some situations, such subterranean termites control, drilling, treating, or trench application of repellent termiticide barrier rods and trowels may be the only option for ongoing termite control management.

Types of Termiticides: 

Repellent and Nonrepellent.

These two types of termiticides can be used depending on the circumstances at your home. Repellent termiticides act as a barrier to keep termites out of the structure. They rely on termite activity for elimination.  

As was stated, other secondary treatments for Drywood termites are Non-repellent, transferable termiticides. The termiticide acts on the termite’s organism spreading to other termite colonies. Borate treatments and foams penetrate wood members and leave residual termiticides that kill termites. Gentry and Associates can also help you with tent-less termite control. Our termite inspectors will be happy to discuss secondary treatments for your structure. 

Non-Repellent Local Treatments

Non-repellent termiticides can stop termite eating within hours. The treatment is administered to termites who are first to be exposed. They then inhale the substance and take it with them to their colony to cause damage to other termites. Exposure termites can walk, groom, and aggregate in groups even after eating, allowing treatment to spread among the colony members. Non-repellent termiticides kill termites three months or less and provide residual structural protection.
