New Construction Protection

New Construction Protection




Termites cause over $5 billion worth of property damage every year and constitute one of the biggest threats your home, office or business will ever face. However, a pre-construction termite treatment can prevent termites from damaging the homes you build and your reputation.


Bio-Chem Exterminating offer the two best products on the market to protect new construction against termites and other pests – Termidor and Bora-Care. These products are applied at two different stages of construction. How can they protect your project against termites? Read on….


Step 1: Pre-Treatments with Termidor®


What is Termidor?

Termidor is America’s #1 termite defense product, completely eliminating termite populations faster than any other termite defense product in existence. Termidor is a pre- and post-construction liquid termite defense product applied by Esparza Pest Control. Since its launch in 2000, Termidor has been used over all other products (liquid or bait) to successfully defend over 2.6 million homes against termites.


How does Termidor Work?

Termidor is applied to areas in and around the home where termites can be found and begins working immediately to defend against them. Because of its advanced undetectable technology, termites can’t smell, see or feel Termidor. Consequently, they forage freely in the treated zone, ingesting Termidor and getting it on their bodies.

Whenever a termite ingests or touches Termidor, the termite becomes a “carrier,” transferring Termidor to every other termite it contacts. These termites in turn become secondary carriers, transferring the termiticide to every termite they contact.

Because Termidor is slow acting, termites have ample time to spread it throughout their entire colony. This unique, spiraling process is called the “Transfer Effect™,” and it helps Termidor deliver devastating results unmatched by any other product.


Why choose Termidor for pre-construction termite control?

Although pre-construction termite treatments have generally been price-driven, today more pest professionals than ever are working with home builders to use premium products like Termidor for pre-construction termite prevention. Many custom and upscale home builders view a premium termite defense treatment like any other premium accessory or appliance installed in a home and are marketing it to home buyers as a valuable property enhancement.

Builders are also recognizing that even a few “problem” termite homes can seriously damage their reputations, and, consequently, appreciate the value of using the best termite defense product. In nationwide testing performed by the US Department of Agriculture Forest Service, Termidor has provided 100% control at all concrete slab and ground board testing sites since 1994. In these tests, no termites have ever penetrated Termidor-treated soil, and no damage has ever been noted through 10 years. This length of control is unmatched by any other commercially available termite defense.


What can home builders do to ensure new homes are protected from termites?

Step 2: Protecting the Shell of your home with Bora-Care

Bora-Care, termiticide is a preventive treatment on new construction. Bora-Care is an EPA registered termiticide, insecticide and fungicide topically applied to wood for the prevention and elimination of termites, wood boring beetles, carpenter ants and wood decay fungi in new and existing structures.


Why should you care about which subterranean termite pre-treatment method is used on their new construction projects?

Consider the advantages that come with specifying Bora-Care for your home and/or business. When you use Bora-Care as opposed to soil treatment chemicals for new construction treatments (pre treat), you don’t have to worry about coordinating schedules between pest management professionals (PMP) and cement companies or landscapers. Bora-Care saves builders time and money because Bora-Care is applied directly to the wood–a much simpler, highly efficient process that eliminates problems caused by pumping hundreds of gallons of chemicals into the soil. Simply put, Bora-Care eliminates more than termites–it eliminates problems. It’s a fact.

Plus, construction crews can remain on the job during treatment applications and not having to worry about weather-related setbacks to the treatment process. Learn more about Bora-Care at:
