You will win if you start the soil treatment for termites

For most people, termites are annoying creatures. They can bite crops and worm walls, causing a lot of harm.

A thousand miles of dike is destroyed by an anthill, which means that a thousand miles long dike often collapses due to an anthill, which is a metaphor for a big disaster caused by carelessness. Termites are swarming insects and are found on 2/3 of the earth’s land area. They are excellent architects by nature, building huge nests beneath the ground, where millions of termites live. They have a clear division of labor and each has its own role to play. Even though the nest appears to be intact on the ground, the nest is intricate and complex, making the soil treatment of termites an important issue.


Termites are “social cockroaches” that can eat a variety of field crops, cash crops, forest trees, fruit trees and seedlings. Urban garden trees provide favorable natural conditions for termite breeding: the “heat island effect” of urban microclimate, unique soil hydrology conditions, and few natural enemies for termites. Due to the lack of awareness of prevention, some trees are not specially inspected and treated for termites in the surrounding soil environment before planting, and the decaying dead trees, branches and piles that may exist are the favorite food of termites. These are the “root causes” of termite infestation.


The damage caused by termites to buildings should not be underestimated, as they conceal themselves inside the wood structure and destroy the load-bearing parts, often causing sudden collapse of the house, resulting in property damage and casualties. Termites prefer to eat furniture made of soft materials such as pine and plywood, but not furniture made of hard materials such as mahogany and camphor wood. The use of a large amount of wood materials after residents move in may artificially bring termites into the new home or destroy the isolation zone set up during termite prevention in new houses. In addition to wooden structures, termites are also harmful to reinforced concrete. Termites can secrete ant acid, which can corrode and damage reinforced concrete, many kinds of metal devices and various wires and cables, and plastic products. In order to reduce the chance of termite damage, it is still necessary to carry out termite prevention when decorating and renovating new homes.


To do prevention and inspection, first of all, soil treatment for termites is required.


Based on the research on the foraging behavior and biological habits of subterranean termites, we have developed a new product for termite control. Pestman termite colony elimination system fixes wooden blocks, which are preferred by termites and have strong attraction to termites, into the monitoring and control device, and then installs the device in the soil around the trees to be protected or in the inner and outer slopes of the dike and the top of the slope according to certain requirements. The worker ants that go out to feed around the bait station are strongly attracted by the lure released in the soil by the wood block, and quickly build an ant path to the bait station and enter the bait station to feed. When the bait station is full of termites, the bait is poured in. At this time, the bait containing a very small amount of toxicity will also be freely taken by the worker ants, and the worker ants returning to the nest will feed the poisonous bait to the king, queen, soldier ants, workers and young ants in the nest through cross-feeding behavior, thus leading to the death of the whole nest.


Alternatively, a special powder spraying device can be used to spray the powder on the termites that are feeding on the baited wood, and the drugged termites will pass the powder to their fellow nest members through hugging and cleaning, which will eventually lead to the death of the whole nest. The baited wood in the bait station was later replaced to allow the device to continue to function as a monitor of termite activity.


Compared with the existing soil chemical pesticide barrier for termite control, it can detect and prevent termites earlier and kill them more efficiently, and monitor termite invasion in green areas, woodlands and dams that need to be protected for a long time; it can actively lure termites into the monitoring device and eliminate all termites in the whole nesting colony in a short time; it is non-polluting to water sources and has no effect on aquatic organisms, and is safe and environmentally friendly as all sites are suitable It is safe and environmental friendly, no special protection is needed for the construction personnel to operate, and the health of the residents and pets in the use area will not be negatively affected in any way.


At the same time, the baited wood in the bait station has strong luring power and long monitoring distance. The bait wood is made of wood that termites like to eat. Different woods are used as bait wood for different groups of termites (milk termites and loose termites are classified as one group, and soil termites and large termites are classified as another group), and after the treatment of lure and feeding stimulant, the bait woods have good palatability and large number of termites. There are 8 pieces of baitwood in the device, which can be fed by tens of thousands of termites at the same time, greatly improving the speed of killing the whole nest.


When designing the device, the behavior of different termites was taken into consideration, and the bait wood was placed close to the plastic shell, so that the termites lured into the device can quickly enter the device to feed as soon as they approach the device, which shortens the time for termites to enter the device to feed and improves the luring effect. It is simple and convenient to use. When inspecting, you can open the cover of the device and carry out powder spraying treatment (spraying the special powder for termite control on the termites feeding inside the device with a powder sprayer) and bait application treatment (applying the bait between two pieces of bait wood inside the device) to achieve the purpose of one device with multiple uses (activity monitoring, powder spraying treatment, baiting treatment).       


Before installing termite bait stations at control sites, it is necessary to investigate the specific situation of the installation site. In the garden site, investigate the area of the green area, the type and distribution of trees, the surrounding water source, and the termite hazard (type, distribution range and degree of hazard). To investigate the geomorphological characteristics of the area where the house building is located, the surface environment, the use of the original plot, the location of underground electric wires and cables and related pipelines, the termite hazard situation (type, distribution range and degree of hazard), and the location where it is not appropriate to install monitoring devices, etc.


When installing in green areas, the installation spacing of bait stations is 5-10 meters longitudinally and 20-50 meters horizontally, mainly in the soil around lawns, tree trunks, wooden fences, street light poles and so on. Green areas are installed at a spacing of 10 meters. Old and valuable trees are installed in 3-5 sets per tree, in a symmetrical way in the soil around the base of the tree within 50 cm, the closer the installation is to the base of the tree, the better. If there is a termite path or mud quilt on the tree, install the devices close to the tree in the soil at the base of the trunk where the path or mud quilt appears. According to the density, area, scope and degree of termite damage and the general orientation of the nest, design the installation location and quantity of monitoring devices. The outdoor termite monitoring device is installed at 0.3-1m from the base of the exterior wall with a spacing of 5m. For ancient buildings with ant infestation, they can be installed at 0.5 meters from the wall with a spacing of 2-3 meters.


The formation of anthill is not overnight, and the termite treatment of trees and soil is not incurable, as long as the right measures are taken, the infestation can be stopped.
