In situations where termites may be entering a building under concrete paths, ideally we’d have the concrete removed to allow us to treat around pipes and penetrations such as water, plumbing, sewerage and electrical pipes, as these are common termite entry points into homes on concrete slabs, as are the gaps around brick work where mortar is missing.
Home owners rarely allow us to have the concrete removed, so we drill those areas and inject the soil underneath with termiticides such as Termidor.
Here are a few examples of termite entry points in brick veneer homes:
No doubt you’ll hear building inspectors carry on about gardens against walls being high risk, but the reality is more likely the opposite. This is why we drill and treat under slabs because this is where termites like to work.
