Termite Pretreatments for New Home Construction

Even newly constructed homes are at risk for termite infestation. HomeTeam offers numerous termite pretreatment 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.

Borate Wood Pretreatment

Protect new homes from infestation with wood pretreatment, an effective termite control solution. HomeTeam Pest Defense's borate wood pretreatment 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.

Soil Pretreatment

Protect new homes with termite control soil pretreatment. HomeTeam Pest Defense's two-step liquid pretreatment 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 protective barrier to the soil during new construction, our home termite control prevention sends unwanted guests packing.
