No Tent No Chemical Wood Pest Treatment

The following are two common questions many people ask about the microwave termite treatment process.

How does it work?

Microwave Termite Treatment kills termites, fungi and beetle larva within the wood where they live. This is achieved by the bombardment of radio frequency waves upon the pests' cell structure and the wood cells housing them. The radio frequency bombardment of the moisture within the wood and pest thermally heats the infestation or infection rapidly from the inside outward, similar to the way a potato thermally heats within a microwave oven. Heat generated becomes lethal in a very short time. The generator is then moved to treat adjacent infested areas. The process is repeated until the entire area of infestation has been thoroughly treated.

How do you know the Infestation will die?

During treatment procedure the temperature is monitored for safety and for certainty to achieve the lethal treatment dosage needed to assure a good kill.

A number of past university research studies by well renowned entomologists have established documented lethal temperatures for termite kill at about 125.7 degrees Fahrenheit maintained for 5 minutes, damage also occurs to wood destroying beetle larva at similar temperatures. Infestations exposed rapidly to extreme temperatures above 128 degrees Fahrenheit are damaged quickly.

"Without a doubt, sufficient microwave energy applied to infested wood will kill termites." Venard R. Lewis,Ph.D Entomologist, 1996 UC Berkeley efficacy research report.

Microwave termite treatment is recommended to be performed by a responsible pest control applicator who has been fully trained and informed of the proper and safe operational use of a Microwave treatment system.
