The practice of Post Construction Pest Control is highly important on completion of a building project.
Subterranean termites are considered to be amongst the most destructive insect pest in the world. They are dependent for their survival on an external moisture source and they dwell in soil and work through it until they reach a food source either within the soil or above ground. If moisture is available from a source other than the soil termite may not require access to the soil.
Thus, isolated above-ground infestations may occur in buildings where subterranean termite have access to water by condensation, leaking pipe, rainwater or other sources.
Building activity may often provide the ideal platform from which termite colonies can attack the building.
