What are Termites?
Termites are tiny white ant species that infest wood and furniture at home and in the foundations of buildings.
There are 2,750 different species of termites in the world, but fortunately, termite control in Dubai will be easier as the most common species of termites in the UAE are one species known as Subterranean Termites.
Subterranean termites are the ones that feed on wood, hence becoming the scariest menace at home.
Subterranean termites are divided into two kinds: worker and swarmer
The commonly seen white/creamy colored termites seen in infested woods come under the worker termite and they are 3 to 4 mm in length.
Meanwhile, the swarmers are said to be the reproductive class of the termite colony. Swarmers are about 4 mm in length and have a dark brown or black appearance.
Termites have very soft bodies and are said to be social with other insects. Since they are social insects, they have different classes in their society, as mentioned earlier
The head of a termite colony is said to be their queen, who lays eggs, pretty much like ants! Yes, termites are similar to ants but different at their core or to be precise, white ants.
What attracts termites to the house?
The Subterranean termites require damp soil and will infest any wood that comes into contact with it.
These termites will also build mud tubes to get themselves from the earth to the wood.
Mud tubes acts like a link for termites, providing protection from dehydration as well as a path to any wood that may be found above the ground.

Top 4 treatment methods for termite control
1. Drilling and Injecting
If there is an already infected area festering with termites, we make use of the drilling and injection method to exterminate termites.
Once the drilling process is done, we inject termiticide solutions under pressure into these holes to create a pesticide barrier against the termites.

2. Soil Treatment
A trench surrounding the foundation is dug first, and the soil is treated with a termiticide. After that, the trench is refilled.
This form of treatment helps to prevent future termite infestations by killing any termites in the house before they return to the soil to start a new colony
3. Wood Treatment
Some examples of wood treatment are surface sprays, injected sprays and foams, and Borate-treated wood.
Borate wood treatments are used by pest control professionals to prevent termite infestations and to eradicate any existing termites in residences.
Surface treatments are used during the construction phase of a home, as well as wood injections and foams once it is completed.
4. Trenching and flooding
In this termite extermination method, we remove the slightly loose soil from the building perimeter in order to make a trench and flood it with termiticide spray mix.
The idea is to leach the spray mix with the surface of the wall deep down to the footing level. This method is very effective, especially in termite control.
Out of the two post-construction termite control methods, the best strategy is chosen after a thorough inspection of the termite-infested areas, so as to provide the best service and bring about total termite control in Dubai.
