Termites

At SEMO, we know termites!

 

Termite Pre-Construction Treatment

We follow the requirements of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development by placing Termidor termiticide under all slabs, including basement slabs, prior to concrete being poured. Treatment is also applied to exterior soil after final grading. Treatments are guaranteed for one year. 


Termite Post-Construction Treatment

We follow strict established procedures, using the proper solution of Termidor termiticide. Solution is applied all around the footings of your structure, holes are drilled through the slab at prescribed intervals, and injected with pressurized solution. Holes are then filled with concrete. For exterior soil, we apply the solution next to the foundation at a depth of 1 to 2 feet. For crawl spaces, application of the solution is made next to support piers, plumbing pipes and the foundation. Treatments are guaranteed for one year. 


Ten Year Termite Guarantee

A ten year termite certificate will be issued upon completion of our pre-construction and post-construction treatment. Our guarantee provides for annual inspections, treatment of any occurrences of subsequent infestation, repair and replacement of structural damage that might occur after treatment of up to $250,000 with no deductible. Our Ten Year Termite Guarantee is unsurpassed in the industry!  


Termite Baiting System

We place termite bait stations around the structure, normally in the ground. These stations contain termite interceptors. Stations are checked one month after placement, and then every three months for the term of the contract. If termite activity is found, termite bait is placed in the station and is replenished until activity has stopped.
