Termite damage is costly .Because they live within walls and furniture, many homeowners do not recognize infestations until they are fully mature. Mature colonies require constant feeding and can inflict damage every day that they are left undetected. There are two methods of termite control.
- Pre construction termite treatment
- Post construction termite treatment
Pre construction termite treatment
One popular pre construction termite treatment is the use of termite-resistant wood. Resinous woods are naturally termite resistant, and some other woods are chemically injected to deter termites. While no method can guarantee safety against natural pests, termite-resistant wood has been remarkably effective in protecting new homes from infestation for a time.
The creation of barriers surrounding or under a home’s foundation may also prove effective. Chemically treated synthetic blocks, insulation or soil are used for this purpose. Liquid residual preconstruction treatments also can be applied to the soil during home construction. They are often applied to soil prior to building slabs being poured. These barriers can be effective in preventing a subterranean termite infestation.
Post construction termite treatment
Termites “nest” in the soil and from there they can attack structures by building shelter tubes from the soil to the wood in structures. To control termites, it is almost always necessary to use termiticides. It may be applied as liquids or baits. When applied as a liquid, the termiticide is injected into the soil or to wood members of a structure. When a bait system is used, the bait is placed in specially designed bait stations in the soil around the exterior perimeter of a structure.
Treatment of the soil establishes a termiticide barrier in the soil under and adjacent to a building. A continuous barrier must be established along the inside and outside of the foundation wall, under slabs and around utility entrances.
A vertical barrier is established in the soil by trenching or trenching and rodding along all sides of foundation elements such as foundation walls, chimney bases, pilasters, and pillars. The trench must be at least 6 inches in depth. Termiticide is applied by trenching or trenching and rodding from the top of the grade to the top of the footing or to a minimum depth of 30 inches. Where drain tile, french drains, or other foundation drainage systems present a hazard of contamination outside the treatment zone, treatment shall be performed in a manner that will not introduce the termiticide into the drainage system.
construction joints at 12-inch intervals and no more than 6 inches from the foundation. The soil below the slab must be treated from the bottom of the slab to the top of the footing. This method of drilling and treating is also used for dirt-filled porches and stress cracks sometimes found in slabs. control if it is used for all wood construction, at least to the ceiling level of the first floor.
These systems are a recent innovation in termite control. Termiticide baits control termites by eliminating or reducing the size of the termite colony.
There are two strategies for the use of termiticide baits. One involves the placement of monitoring devices containing untreated wood or other cellulose material in the soil around the structure to be protected. When termites are detected in the monitoring device, the untreated cellulose material is replaced with a treated material, referred to as a “termiticide bait”.
The second bait strategy currently in use involves the attachment of bait devices directly to the surface of construction elements where termites are actively feeding. These devices are pre-baited and are attached to the foundation walls, floor joists, sub-floor and other similar locations. Termites then feed on the bait material.
Mosquito control manages the population of mosquitoes to reduce their damage to human health, economies, and enjoyment.
Mosquito control is a vital public-health practice throughout the world and especially in the tropics because mosquitoes spread many diseases, such as malaria and dengue.
Public health is the focus when mosquitoes are vectors, or transmitters, of infectious disease.
Disease organisms transmitted by mosquitoes include dengue fever, yellow fever, malaria, Zika virus and Japanese Encephalitis.
Depending on the situation, source reduction, bio control, larviciding (killing of larvae), or adulticiding (killing of adults) may be used to manage mosquito populations. These techniques are accomplished using habitat modification, pesticide, biological-control agents, and trapping.
The common house fly (Musca domestica) multiplies rapidly and is one of the most prevalent of all insect pests. It has been associated with over 100 different disease pathogens, including salmonella, cholera and tuberculosis, so it is important to manage pest outbreaks.
When feeding, flies regurgitate liquid from the stomach to dissolve food, then use their sponging mouthparts to suck it up. They leave fecal spots, or “specks,” where they have walked, and in this way may transfer disease organisms to humans and animals. In rural areas, flies can be a nuisance when they gather on the outside walls of homes and buildings on summer evenings
Females deposit 2-21 egg masses, each containing about 130 white eggs in manure or fermenting vegetation such as grass clippings and garbage. Hatching takes place in 10-24 hours; the young maggots become fully grown in 3-7 days, crawl to the margins of the breeding material and pupate. The pupal stage may vary in length considerably, but in warm weather can be about three days. When adults emerge they begin mating immediately. An entire life cycle; egg, larva, pupa to winged adult may occur in 6-10 days under warm, moist conditions. Adults may live an average of 30 days. During warm weather 2 or more generations may be produced per month.
Note: Flies are known to spread diseases such as conjunctivitis, typhoid fever, tuberculosis, anthrax, cholera, diarrhea and dysentery. Here’s how to get rid of flies naturally.
