What are Termites and How to Get Rid of them?

Subterranean termites are most commonly found across the UAE and they are sometimes called "White Ants" due to some similarities.

They are a highly destructive timber pest, causing major structural timber damage to domestic/commercial buildings all over the country.

Subterranean termites are small in size (about half the size of match-head - 4-11 mm) and soft-bodied insects. They build a central colony nest from which they construct underground tunnels that radiate within a 90-meter radius from a central colony nest in search of a timber (cellulose) food source.

Authorities in the UAE made it obligatory to have a Pre-Construction Termite Treatment prior to construction of any commercial or residential property, which works as a great prevention method.

But in case of termite infestation, a Post-Construction termite treatment will be a need, which includes drilling around the premises and injecting pesticides inside the drilled holes to form an anti-termite barrier around the premises.
