What is in the liquid treatment that makes it so effective against termites?
The product used in the Liquid Defend System is “non-repellent,” meaning it doesn’t kill the termites right away. Rather, it works slowly so that the termites that come in contact with the treatment can carry it to other termites throughout the rest of the colony.
What is involved with a liquid treatment?
With the Terminix Liquid Defend System, one of our trained technicians creates a trench in soil areas and carefully drills through slab areas around the perimeter of your home, then applies a highly effective liquid agent. The treatment agent sticks to termites as they forage through the treated soil. Elimination begins almost immediately as the termites spread the material to other termites.
Will the Terminix Bait Defend System or the Liquid Defend System work against the kind of termites I have?
Terminix termite treatments have been proven effective against all economically important subterranean (not drywood) termite species in the mainland U.S. and Hawaii—including Formosan termites—regardless of soil type, climate or geographic conditions.
When the colony is eliminated, do you reapply the treatment?
No. Treatments are not reapplied unless new termite activity is found in your home.
When should a home be re-treated for termites?
Your home should be inspected annually, but annual re-treatment of the structure is prohibited. Re-treatment only takes place when there is clear evidence of re-infestation, treatment zone disruption and/or breakdown of the termiticide treatment zone in the soil. Disruption of the treatment zone is usually because of construction, excavation or landscaping.
