Hi to all Forum browsers .
When it comes to the history of soil pretreatments in the pest control/building industries the quality of workmanship and integrity has taken a severe dive in the goal for professionalism!
Subterranean termites are one of the most aggressive wood boring organisms in the WDO's field, yet they are treated with the least concern...
"In the good old days", a saying that applies to our current situation, we were spoiled with brilliant chemicals like chlordane witch made it possible for PCO's to dilute the product, to cut costs, and still get the desired protection. Which was unethical!!!
The concern here is that this bad practice set a president which put this part of the industry is in dire straits!
Chemicals like chlordane are not available anymore and we're forced to use inferior products, which work perfect if applied correctly, but to our horror is being applied weaker than its predecessor!
Why?, how can they be so stupid?, how do they get away with it?, etc. you may ask...
Well I leave these questions open for debate, hoping to see some interest. If so, those of us concerned can change this course!
It might be your house's quote that came in a few R's cheaper to suite your needs, but repairs on a R10 000 sliding door and frame is not under that warranty.
Just a thought, how many door frames, window frames etc. in your house are exposed?
