No Tent No Chemical Wood Pest Treatment

Pest industry's rule of thumb is; The success and safety of chemical or non-chemical treatments is directly related to the safe and complete professional application of the product according to it's label. Therefore; the treatment is only as safe & effective as the application performance. There is no exception to this rule.

This also applies to whole structure fumigation with poisonous gas, also referred to as tenting a structure for the control of wood destroying pests such as Termites or wood beetles etc. This type of treatment is often over sold and misunderstood to be a 100% cure all for present and future pests. When in fact, many fumigation fail because of poor application, such as, the tent seal is blown open, not enough gas was used, the weather was to cold etc.. No poison residual is left behind after tent is removed. Termite instinct is to eat their dead before resuming to wood consumption. An unsuccessful treatment may only kill a portion of the colony, when so, it may take up to a year or two for the remaining live termites to finish feeding on the dead before they return to eating wood again. During the lapse of time that the termites are not eating the wood, new evidence of active termites is no longer produced, so often it becomes misbelieved that the termites have been killed from the fumigation, when in essence, they are live and well with plenty of termite corpses to finish consuming before it becomes necessary to feed on wood again.

The best treatments include follow up future annual inspections and control service agreements. Too often, homeowners have their homes fumigated for termites and then forget about it, only to find out fumigation is again recommended needed as little as 2 years down the road or just shortly after their treatment warranty expires. The terrible thing about this often occurrence is it takes about 7 years for a drywood termite infestation to become well established from date of initial attack. It is clearly obvious that many structures undergo numerous whole structure poison gas fumigation without ever achieving successful termite control.
