Termite Treatments for New Home Construction

Even newly constructed homes are at risk for termite infestation. HomeTeam offers numerous termite treatment services to help protect and prevent your home buyer's future home from termite infestation. Taking action now can protect your home buyer's investment down the line, increasing initial purchase appeal.

Borate Termite Wood Treatment

Protect new homes from infestation with wood termite treatment, an effective termite control solution. HomeTeam Pest Defense's borate wood treatment acts as both a termiticide and a termite repellent for years after application.

The best way to protect the wooden structure of a new home from subterranean invaders is to make the wood so distasteful they'll head elsewhere. Highly effective borate wood pretreatment from HomeTeam does exactly that, penetrating deep inside the lumber framework to provide long-lasting protection.

Termite Soil Treatment

Protect new homes with termite control soil treatment. HomeTeam Pest Defense's two-step liquid treatment is effective and provides long-lasting protection.

Termites present a significant and constant threat to the value of any home. That's why we apply a soil pretreatment to eliminate problems before they happen. By applying a virtual barrier to the soil during new construction, our home termite control prevention sends unwanted guests packing.

Sentricon® System For New Construction

For round the clock termite control for existing homes and new construction HomeTeam uses Sentricon Colony Elimination System with Always Active Technology™ Protect your home from subterranean termites with professional Home Team monitoring service and Sentricon Always Active Technology. Home Team backs its installation and service with a $1 Million Termite Warranty* that covers the cost of repairs and retreatment if termites damage your home.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am a builder. Who do I contact if I want more information?

Each region of the country is supported by Builder Sales Representatives who can answer all your questions. You can email HomeTeam Pest Defense from the contact page or call 1-877-461-PEST (7378) to get your representative contact information.

How long does a borate pretreatment take?

On average, it takes about 45 minutes for a borate pretreatment. It will not impede your cycle time.

What if I have blown-in insulation?

Exterior finishes, foundation design and insulation type effect which walls Taexx is installed. Taexx is designed to meet the specific needs of each builder. The Taexx system will be installed in designated exterior or interior walls or combination of both.

What kind of impact does installation of the Taexx system have on my cycle time?

None. It only takes one to two hours to install a typical home so it will not impede your building cycle. We'll work around your schedule.
