TERMITE TREATMENTS IN SPECIFIC AREAS HOW TO KILL TERMITES IN specific areas

 

Firstly, we can find termites in different parts of a structure and outside the building to reach and consume cellulose. They may hide behind your foundation walls, through the cavities of your wall or use your brick veneer to reach lumber.

However, there are many situations where MABI injectors help you to reach termites with the product of your choice:

  • Chemical termiticide such as Termidor, Taurus SC, Premise, Altriset or any other brand labelled for this pest in your state
  • All-Natural Ways of Eliminating Termites with Bora Care, XT-2000 or any Eco-Friendly product approved for the pest and the element of the structure targeted

 

You can use liquid or foam products for your termite treatment depending on the situation.

 

Find here a few examples of specific areas where Mabi injectors will help you to treat termites and other unwanted pests.

1. Foundation walls or solid brick piers:

Subterranean termites live below ground and may enter the structure through cracks in the foundation walls or by the brick piers. 

To block the possible entry point for termite control, you have to apply a pesticide (termiticide). 

HOW TO DO A SUBTERRANEAN TERMITE TREATMENT WITH THE MABI SYSTEM?

At first, for termites or general pests, adopt a clean and efficient process to reduce call backs and increase sales. Possibility to convert it into a built-in system in solid brick walls.

To name only a few benefits for you, think about a controlled and precise injections for less chemical use.

Plus, an easy and fast ongoing maintenance: the MABI system is set up for long.

 

FOUNDATION WALLS TERMITE TREATMENT BY MABI: DRILL-PLUG-INJECT METHOD

 

First, drill the 2/3rd of the foundation wall thickness, using the Mabi injector of your choice (Ø 1/4’’, 3/8’’, ½’’). Drill preferably on the outside of the building, following a horizontal line closest to the ground. 

Then, install all MABI injectors into each drilled hole using a rubber mallet.

Now, screw the injection tip on your equipment and start injecting your product through all Mabi injectors, a 2-in-1 injection plug.

For each injection, the injected product quantity should be controlled in order to respect the manufacturer’s chemical product instructions.

After the injection, Mabi injectors are left inside the holes and serve as plugs. You can hide them with a suitable sealant (concrete patch) for foundation brick walls and do not use them again.

Finally, you can add a cap for aesthetic reason and to protect the connection head of the MABI injector. You can use the same injectors without drilling again in the foundation walls if reinfestation or breakdown of the treated area

2. Cavity wall

In structures with void walls and brick veneers, many general pests (ants, spiders, …) can use these cavities and hollow spaces as a regular route to enter the building. Formosan termites may use the wall spaces to build their secondary nest. Their nests are called aerial nest or carton and are made of cellulose and fecal material.

In the same way as mentioned before, drill holes, but this time through the whole thickness, to reach the void behind your cavity walls. 

The goal is to inject your liquid or foam termiticide on the other side of the brick veneer. That way, it will treat this hidden space where termites and unwanted pests thrive.

Therefore, the Pest Management Professional can come regularly to treat any pest in your cavity wall without drilling again. 

In short, faster treatments with less disturbance for homeowners.  

3. Drywall

Pests and termites can hide behind drywalls. 

Formosan termites love to hide their carton nest behind dry walls.

A good solution is to use foam in these areas to get a maximum coverage.

By contrast to brick walls, you’d rather use the smallest Mabi injector for this use, the ¼’’ .

As a result, the applicator will treat behind the drywall unnoticed and easily during his ongoing maintenance services.

4. Trees

When a tree is damaged by termites or wood boring beetles and need to be protected, the trunk injection is the most effective alternative to spraying or soil applications.

Not only the MABI injectors are easy to install but they are also cost effective because you keep your own equipment, just adapting an injection tip on your sprayer or termite spray rig.

Last but not least, to treat all tree types, this new tree injection system is available in 3 different sizes ¼’’ ; 3/8” and ½”.

5. Other uses

Whenever and wherever you need to inject any liquid or foam, use MABI Injectors to make sure your product is where it should be with no backflow issue.
