Pest Control Opportunities

Some pest control operators are wary of TERM.  There is a common belief that if termite control is built into the structure, it kills their termite control business.

We at TERM have no intent of destroying the termite control market. Our vision is to change the termite control market.

At the right is TERM Particle Barrier installed around the perimeter of a Florida building.  TERM Particle Barrier blocks termites from climbing the exposed concrete perimeter.      

Today’s termite contracts call for regular inspection of a structure.  If termites are found, some form of termiticide is used to eliminate them.

TERM Exclusion Particle Barrier

With TERM Particle Barrier installations, the pest control operator is still required to regularly inspect the building.  This inspection must be done because the particle barrier border around the perimeter can be disrupted by cats or dogs digging, landscape or construction activities, overgrowth, debris, mulch, children playing, or soil settlement.

Instead of termiticide treatment, the PCO repairs any damaged stretch of protective particle barrier.  Customers will love the sustainability

Non-chemical protection of exposed concrete perimeters using TERM Particle Barrier
(New construction or existing structures)
Applied around exposed perimeters, TERM Particle Barrier uses precisely sized and shaped stones to create a physical barrier. Termites can neither move the particles aside or squeeze through.
Periodic inspection by the pest control operator is required.
