Rentokil uses liquid termiticide in its post construction treatment. The termiticide treatment creates a treated zone around the perimeter of your premises by injecting termiticide into the ground to form a barrier between the soil and building structure. The termiticide can be applied under a concrete floor or around the foundations of the building. As termite workers tunnel through treated zones in search of food, they are exposed to the termiticide. The termiticide is not only ingested, but also adheres to their bodies. The affected termites then spread the active ingredient to other termites through physical contact, eventually reducing the population of the colony.
By directly treating the soil beneath the structure, Rentokil practices vertical drilling (or drilling at 90 degree) to the ground against the conventional practice of skirting level drilling at a 45 degree angle. The conventional treatment does not allow the termiticide to penetrate into the soil effectively and evenly. Injecting termiticide directly into the ground helps it to penetrate into the soil under, thus saturating it with termiticide and reducing the subterranean termite colonies which inhabit the soil under and around the structures.
