Every now and then, you come across a termite infestation that is very hard to treat. Sometimes, termites will infest the wood beneath a building, in the foundation, and if the building is large enough, there may be Billions of termites in the building alone. This type of scenario is rare, but it can happen, and even the most seasoned pros will be left scratching their heads trying to figure out how to deal with it. However, even these seemingly impossible infestations have a solution if you use the right method.
It all starts with identifying the barriers that will get in the way of the treatment. In tough infestation scenarios, there will be various obstacles that prevent the easy application of the treatment, obstacles such as a slab of concrete that gets in the way (pavements come to mind). The solution here is to start thinking about various treatment methods that could sidestep the need to drill through the obstacle in order to reach the soil.
For example, when dealing with a large obstacle where drilling through it is not an option, the pro may choose to use bait stations, which can be very effective at removing an infestation quickly.
