When it comes to new home construction and avoiding future termite infestations, “an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure” is not just a popular saying, it is prophetic! To be certain, it is nearly impossible to prevent something from happening 100 percent of the time but pre-treating the area where your new home will be built or where you are expanding your present home, can significantly increase the odds of its remaining termite-free.
The goal of termite pretreatment is to form a chemical barrier in the ground to prevent subterranean termites from coming up through the soil to feed on wood in your home. This termite pre-construction treatment is most effective because the soil under the foundation (in north Texas typically a concrete slab) is infused with termiticide just before construction begins. Because the foundation is not yet poured, Pest Off Pest Control can more easily ensure that the proper amount of termiticide is applied to all soil under and around the planned foundation. This results in a continuous treated area under the entire home foundation or addition. After your construction is completed, Pest Off Pest Control will return to complete the process by treating around the finished structures.
Pest Off Pest Control Uses the Only Pre-Construction Termite Treatment with a 30 Year Limited Warranty!
Bora-Care® is a revolutionary new construction termite treatment by Nisus Corporation that is applied to wood during the dried-in phase of construction. It has been proven to last longer than soil termiticides and can earn builders green points under most green building programs while providing the lowest possible impact to the environment.
Bora-Care® is the termite pre-treatment selected for use by Pest Off Pest Control of Sherman to protect new construction from subterranean termites. Pest Off Pest Control will apply Bora-Care to the wood, concrete and foundations of our new home or business in a fast, efficient process. Termites cannot devour the treated wood or build tubes over it, thus eliminating future termite problems. Bora-Care is a green solution that earns you points in environmental building programs such as LEED® for Homes, NGBS Green Poduct Certification ProgramTM, EarthCraft® and many others. Previous methods of new construction termite pretreatment involved pumping 300 or more gallons of poison into the soil under a structure. This poison eventually makes its way to rivers, lakes and aquifers in a process that has to be repeated every five to ten years. Save time, money, and the effort of re-treating with Bora-Care termite pre-treatment.
Bora-Care Commercial vs. Old Fashioned Methods of Pre-Construction Termite Treatment
Bora Care Commercial is applied to the first two feet of the structure up from the foundation. Because it is applied during the dried-in phase of construction, it eliminates the delays associated with soil termiticides. This means no more waiting for the pest company to treat before you can pour the slab.
Bora-Care Commercial vs. Old Fashioned Methods Environmental issues are critical to architects and general contractors, making Bora-Care Commercial appealing to concerned builders. Traditional soil treatments pump 2,000 gallons of diluted termiticide under and around a 10,000 sq. ft. structure. Bora-Care Commercial conserves water; it only uses 20 gallons for the same structure. And because it is applied directly to steel, wood, concrete, and foundation penetrations, there is virtually no danger of chemical run-off. Furthermore, Bora-Care Commercial’s active ingredient is a natural borate mineral salt with a low mammalian toxicity, yet it is still deadly to insect pests. And Bora-Care Commercial emits no VOCs (“Volatile Organic Compounds”).
Bora-Care has shown no compatibility issues with any type of piping systems. In addition, Bora Care will not corrode metal fasteners, fittings or nails. Many soil termiticides can cause damage to some piping systems, resulting in expensive post-construction repairs. Soil termiticides break down quickly and can leave gaps. The soil termiticide barrier can easily be broken during excavation and landscaping. Bora-Care Commercial creates a continuous barrier directly on the structure, not in the surrounding soil.
A True Pretreatment— Not Just a Monitoring System. Baiting systems also pose problems, and termites can easily bypass them altogether. More importantly, if the property managers don’t want to pay the annual fees, the stations are removed and the structure is left without any termite protection.
