To stop and prevent the movement of termites from the ground, holes are drilled from inside your premises at the junction of the wall and the floor or just above the skirting (depending on the flooring) at an angle of 45 degrees. The holes are drilled along the side of the entire outer wall at approximately 30cm (12″) intervals. The insecticide is then poured into these holes to soak the masonry. If your premises are on the ground floor, the partition walls are also treated. The drilling operation is not carried out on the partition walls above the ground floor because the RCC slabs act as a mechanical barrier and the termites cannot penetrate them.
