The key to success in any termite job is to follow these principles:

  • Choose appropriate products and follow label directions to the letter.
  • Keep up-to-date with your state regulations.
  • Follow personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements.
  • Carry a spill kit, and have a first-aid kit on hand.
  • Use the right equipment, and always invest in the highest quality tools you can afford.
  • Don’t forget your tool-repair kits, extension cords, cleanup materials and a drill interrupter.
  • Maintain the correct pressure when performing subsoil applications.
  • Calibrate your equipment so you maintain the proper flow rate.
  • Treat all access points, and space your drill holes properly so you ensure an uninterrupted barrier.
  • Incorporate foaming in your program.
  • Use as many treatment options as practical, such as subsoil, direct wood and gallery treatments, void applications, and baiting systems, among others.
