Carpenter Ant Pre-Treatment


PreTreatments Consists of:

  • Power spraying the interior wall voids with Timbor.

This is a once in the lifetime opportunity to protect your house against pests and the timing is crucial. That time is . . . after the wiring and plumbing has been installed, but prior to insulation of the walls and sheetrock being hung.

  • Next, after the insulation is in place and prior to the sheetrock being installed, Timbor in the powder form is placed along the sill plates.

If there is an attic space, this area is dusted after the sheetrock is installed and before the insulation is blown into the attic. This treatment is an excellent non-toxic way to protect your house from carpenter ants, anobiid beetles and termites.

It is also a wood preservative and a fire retardant. Timbor is odorless and lasts a lifetime as long as moisture is never introduced into the structure.

Contractors be aware, some of our clients have been unhappy that they were not made aware of the overwhelming battle with carpenter ants in our area.

The fact that something could have been done during construction that would have had a major effect on the carpenter ants, leaves them disappointed in their contractor because he failed to notify them.
