Conventional Liquid Barrier Treatments
Four Seasons uses only non-repellant chemicals for termite treatments, typically Termidor or Premise. Non repellents such as Termidor and Premise have faced extensive research and field testing and have, without a doubt, soared past the competition. Structures treated in the field tests with one of these two products returned with consistent results nearly every time.
Once a termite has come in contact with or ingested Termidor treated material it becomes a carrier. As the infected termites travel to and from the colony through their mud-tubes the transfer effect takes place with other termites. Each termite that comes in contact with a carrier will become a carrier themselves and the process repeats.
Termidor works slowly allowing termites to transfer the infection many times before death resulting in many more infected termites which should ultimately lead to colony elimination
The initial death of individual termites is relatively slow, however, colony elimination is typically quick, usually within 90 days.
Establishing a Termidor barrier around a structure is performed by first making a trench to specific dimensions around the foundation. In some cases the soil beneath the trench may be rodded and injected with the solution. Once this is completed the trench is filled with the solution as the dirt is replaced. 1/2 inch diameter holes may be drilled into garage, porch, patio and basement concrete to fulfill the perimeter barrier treatment. These holes will be plugged and recovered with a small concrete patch which will blend in quickly in most cases.
Four Seasons Pest Solutions Inc. will provide a re-treat contract, graph of the structure treated and a consumer disclosure form at the time of service and explain the treatment technique.
Colony Eliminating Bait Systems
Four Seasons Pest Solutions Inc. offers complete termite colony elimination utilizing the Exterra Termite Interception and Baiting System. Exterra is used as a stand-alone treatment or can be used in addition to liquid treatments. This product kills by disrupting the molting process in termites. In terms of appearance, Exterra’s in-ground plastic stations are brown and cylindrical. They are fitted into the ground and only a small lid remains approximately 1/4 inch above ground level. These can be mowed over and blend in well with the surroundings
The baiting system is monitored by one of our technicians at least three times each year. In terms of cost effectiveness and quality performance, Exterra Termite Interception and Baiting System is a great choice. This system eliminates the need for extensive drilling into existing concrete and is a great GREEN choice for the environmentally conscience. This system will still be performing perfectly long after a liquid treatment has dissipated.
These Bait stations are placed approximately three feet from the foundation of the house and every 10-20 feet along the perimeter. In some cases there may be two or three stations placed at or around existing active colonies. The average home will require between ten and twenty stations.

SUBTERRANEAN TERMITE BASICS
About mid February of every year, termite season begins in our region. Depending upon the weather, termites may begin swarming slightly at this time. By May to mid-June, termite swarmers can be at the height of swarm season. By this time it isn't uncommon to find them or their shed wings on your vehicle, in your window sills both inside and outside, in spider webs and many other places.
Seeing termite swarms or their shed wings is a strong indication that you have an infestation. However, just because you don't see them does not mean you don't have them. Get a free termite inspection and know for sure. Your home is too valuable to let termites destroy it.
Subterranean termites are social insects that live in societies whose members are mostly immature individuals. Their colonies, which can contain thousands to millions of termites, are formidable, even though each individual termite is soft-bodied and delicate. In nature, subterranean termites are closely associated with the soil habitat where they tunnel to locate water and food (e.g., wood, fallen logs, and other cellulose-containing materials). Termites excavate galleries throughout their food as they consume it. They conceal their workings and can completely honeycomb wood by feeding along the grain and following the softer spring wood, leaving little more than a thin wooden exterior. Subterranean termites construct aboveground earthen runways (shelter tubes) that protect them from the drying effects of air as well as from natural enemies, such as ants. Termites are very susceptible to desiccation, and thus they are dependent on moisture sources. (http://ohioline.osu.edu/b1209/index.html) Follow this link for more details
