Knox has been serving contractors and builders for decades. We will meet the builder at the job site and treat the ground before the slab is poured.  This is not only a building requirement but it also provides top notch protection against termites.  Call to schedule you pre-treatment with Knox today.

When do I call for treatment during the process of building?

Five Easy Steps

  1. Form up the slab, ensuring all form work and grading is complete.
  2. Put in the wire.
  3. Give us a call. We will deliver the termiticide product to your foundation.  A good liquid pre-construction treatment should last about three to five years.
  4. Cover the treatment and do not disturb before pouring concrete. Be sure to call before pouring any porches or attached slabs, as these are critical areas to protect from infestation.
  5. We will perform the perimeter treatment at the end, which is the most important step.

All necessary steps are included, as the first year of warranty protection.

Slab Treatments

We provide a host of pre-construction services for your concrete slab type foundation. Once the builder fully prepares your foundation for concrete application, we will apply a protective barrier of high quality termiticide to the soil that will be underneath the slab. This will effectively protect the home from termite infestation even if cracks occur at a later time. Termites can enter cracks as thin as a sheet of paper. Once poured and finished, we will return and place a full barrier around the outside of the slab, as well as underneath any attached patios or porches.  This will provide your new building with a full complement of protection. We also have other options available for particular situations such as Borate type treatments and Bait Stations. The pre-treatment is one of the most important treatments for any home, and we are committed to performing it in a way that we would have it done on our own home.

Many home and business owners are not aware that in Georgia and Alabama, the average number of termite colonies per acre is 13 or more. There are, on average, 1.6 million termites per colony. Homeowner’s insurance will not cover termite damage. Annually, termites cause more damage that fires and floods combined.

With these facts in mind, we have a variety of treatment methods to protect your already built structure from infestation from these insidious creatures.
These treatments are known as post-construction termite treatments.

A comprehensive post construction treatment can be done usually in one day, and access to the inside of your home would be minimal, if required at all.

We begin by drilling small, ink-pen sized holes a few inches from any wall that has concrete slab attached to your structure. These holes are 12 inches apart, and about three inches from the wall. This allows termiticide to be applied in a continuous barrier below concrete driveways, walks, patios and garages.

Next, we dig a narrow trench beside any walls that have soil next to them. This trench is no more than 6 inches wide. We apply termiticide in these trenches to create a continuous barrier of treated soil all the way around your structure. This will ensure that any foraging termites will have to encounter treated soil before making entry into your home or business. All holes will be patched and all trenches covered over.

Should you have termites in your structure already, additional drilling may be necessary around the structure or inside at the point of infestation. Foam termiticide products are sometimes utilized inside wall voids to enhance the treatment.

If your building is on a crawl space, we will treat around the outside as described above, as well as under the crawl space around pipes and piers.

Our technicians have a long history of experience in the technical aspects of building construction as it relates to proper termiticide application. We know how, where and when to apply the correct amount of products to get the job done without causing harm to your family, customers, animals and the environment.

No matter what your situation, Knox Pest Control has the tools, knowledge and experience to resolve even the most severe termite related problem.

A termite letter is an inspection report, which shows the existence of a visible active or previous termite infestation.  Most lenders require a termite letter dated within 30 days of the date of closing when a property is sold. This bond requires no initial treatment if home is clear at time of inspection. We understand buying a property can be stressful so we are here to make that process go as effortlessly as possible

When you buy or sell a home you will need an Official Georgia or Alabama Wood Infestation Report, commonly called a “Termite Letter“. You may not sell a house that is infested with termites or other wood destroying organisms if a mortgage company is involved in the sale. Likewise you can’t borrow money to buy a house that has an infestation of termites or other wood destroying organisms in most cases.

Knox Pest Control does Termite Letters or “WDO Reports” for real estate closings. Please call the branch office near you to see if they are available in your area and what our fee may be.

Your home will be thoroughly inspected and if a problem is found Knox will give you an estimate to fix the problem.

In most states the local building code requires you to have a structure treated for termites as it is being built. This is called a termite pre-construction treatment. What type you get is usually determined by your builder who does business with various termite companies.

Pre-construction termite treatments are available when you are ready. This way the structure owner can feel confident the structure will not have to undergo a termite treatment with-in the first year of ownership. It is very disruptive for new owners to be surprised with a $1,000 bill to treat your home or building for termites.
