The damage they cause by attacking the cellulose of the wood, cardboard or sheetrock is enough to make a structure weak and unsafe. Hurricanes and Floods Ruin Termite Treatment Homes affected by Hurricane Sandy are especially vulnerable to termites, as the floodwater around the foundation will have seeped into the ground. This then results in the floodwater diluting the chemical composition of the foundation, rendering it useless in protecting your home against termites. This differs from rainwater, which will usually run off harmlessly. So, if floodwater has affected your home, it may be imperative to get immediate termite treatment. How to Remove or Prevent Termites Termite treatment consists of trenching the soil around the foundation, injecting the chemical with a soil rod, and then backfilling the trench. In areas of concrete, blacktop, or some other type of pavement, we drill the area with a ½” carbide bit approximately every 18-20 inches. This would then be followed by injecting the chemical with the soil rod. Once complete, we’d cork and concrete the holes. In some cases where damage shows up in the interior of the home, the floor would need drilling. This may also be accompanied by covering the wall with insecticidal foam.
