Yes, in Louisiana your builder is required by the Louisiana Building Code to provide the owner of the structure with a termite pretreat during construction.
The most common Louisiana termite pretreat is performed by treating the soil under the concrete slab with an EPA and the Louisiana Department of Agriculture approved termiticide. Soil treatments are the most common but we do offer better methods such as Baiting/Monitoring Systems or Borate Treatments.
Yes, by law the company that performs the termite treatment during new construction is required to give you a one year warranty from the DATE OF TREATMENT. After the one year period, you can renew your warranty annually. Remember, if you do not renew your contract/warranty, it automatically becomes null and void, and you will have lost your protection against termites.
A Liquid Pretreat is applied after the foundation is formed and the footing is dug.
During the dried-in phase of construction, your pest control company will apply it directly to the wood, concrete, and foundation penetrations in one spray application. Termites can not digest the wood and they can not tube over it. Earn Points for LEED and other green building programs.
The Termite Baiting System is installed once landscaping is installed. Baiting stations are installed around the exterior of the structure.
You need to schedule the termite pretreatment before the concrete slab is poured, once the plumbing inspection is complete and the slab is graded, just before the concrete is placed. To schedule your our office at 225-261-4198.
