Post Construction Soil Treatment

Corrective soil treatment, also known as anti-termite treatment. The main objective of this treatment is to have an anti-termite treated zone (barrier) around the perimeter ground beams and columns of the building. In order to reach the soil under slab on ground building, it is necessary to drill holes through the slab to inject termiticide using a laterally-dispersing pressure hollow rod.

Equipment : - Heavy-duty “Rotary-Hammer”

Chemical : - Our termiticide contains 38.7% of chlorpyrifos/ 18.3% of imidacloprid as an active ingredient. We employ the manufacturer’s recommended dilution.

Dosage Per Hole : - 5 Litres

Treatment Method :-

Step 1 : Drilling is accomplished by a heavy-duty “Rotary-Hammer” drill type and holes of 16 mm diameter in size. The holes are drilled just over 150mm from the vertical wall and holes are spaced 2 feet apart. Where it is impossible to trench on the outside of the foundation wall due to a concrete or other solid covering, then those will be drilled also.

Step 2 : Termiticide is then injected into the holes at the rate of 5 litres per hole.

Step 3 : After injection, the drilled holes will be filled with cement to match the general appearance of the original surface.
