The Terminix Liquid Defend System® turns your home into a no-termite zone. And as long as you keep your plan, annual monitoring will continue to protect your home against new subterranean termites, including Formosan. If we find anything, you’re covered against treatment and damage repair costs.
That’s it. You don’t have to do anything else. But if termites dare show any sign of activity between your inspections, call us. We’ll re-inspect right away and stop them in their tracks.
A FREE Terminix Termite Inspection is the first step to protecting your home from termites. During a termite inspection, a trained Terminix specialist will thoroughly inspect your home for any signs of termites and identify potential access points. They will work with you to keep your home termite-free and save you from treatments and damage repairs that can cost you thousands.
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.
With the Terminix Liquid Defend System, one of our trained specialists creates a trench in soil areas and carefully drills, when necessary, 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.
Because subterranean termite colonies live underground, it is difficult to determine when a colony might be killed. It might take up to six months to achieve control. However, we have seen that termite activity within a home usually ceases about 30–60 days following our treatment.
The Terminix Liquid Defend Treatment is designed to use the termites to spread the material throughout the colony, collapsing the entire colony rather than quickly killing a few termites near the surface. It takes a little longer, but the results are much better.
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.
