TERMITES

Termites appear almost unexpectedly and are certainly unwelcome to our beautiful homes or property. There are three types of termite but most damaging is the SUBTERRANEAN termite which comes through the soil.

Termites feed on cellulose (building block of wood), but in the process of looking for cellulose, they would chew a path for themselves, hence damaging whatever that may be their path, like electrical wiring for example.

The smallest crack of 1/16th of an inch of cement walls or floorings would be large enough for an army of termites to pass through. The damage caused by termites include door and window frames, wood panelling, floor parquets, cupboards, books, roof beams and joints. If left untreated, all wooden structures and support will be weakened and will eventually lead to collapse of the whole house.

Hence through protection using an effective chemical recommended by APC’s anti termite treatment plan with our competitive cost and effective techniques with dedicated technicians and their expertise is extremely important to ensure the complete exclusion of termites.

Useful methods and chemicals that can bind to the Nicotingeric acetycloline receptors at the nervous systems of termite lead to the paralysis and eventual death of the termite.
