Termites Over Troubled Water

Termite work is tricky enough but add to this a home over water and you could be scratching your head as to what to do. Pesticides and fish don’t seem to get along and reoccurring termites with damage isn’t that great either. There are many unique situations out there just waiting for an answer and hopefully this short video sparked some for you.

Please check out the rest of my termite treatment articles to see other types of approaches and techniques. With todays newer products and application tools there isn’t many structures that I can think of that can’t be treated but even with the most sophisticated tools common sense still rules the day.

    You are correct, in my early years in Florida we ran across quite a few home either at the beach, or over water, It is tricky but in some cases can be done, bait can work also if they wanted to wait. I think Premise might be to water soluable but Termidor or even Transport would do the trick where you can find some dirt. Good job!

  • Good point on Premise– I’m doing the job Friday and most if not all will go into the relative safety of the voids. Can you say ‘retreat only’ contract? I’d love to hear someday a comparison of Florida pest control verses Arizona. What kind of learning curve was that?
