Finding all the termites in your home is nearly impossible, even for
a trained inspector. That's because termites do their damage in hidden
places - inside walls, roof beams and foundation studs. Even the point
where they enter a home is not always visible to an inspector.
make them harder to find, termites do not stay in their colony's main gallery but frequently migrate from place to place, foraging up to
4 yards away. Many worker termites (there are several thousand in an
average colony) can be in the far reaches of the colony at any given time.
What's more, some homes - especially older ones - have more than
one colony at work. So even if one known colony is destroyed, your home
still may not be secure.
Because termite colonies - and all their members - are so hard to
locate, spot treatments often achieve only limited results. Spot treatments
using chemicals, freezing, heating, microwaves and electrocution may successfully
kill the termites they reach. But, as we know, some termites cannot be
located. And the ones that are found may be beyond the range of a spot
If a colony is only partially destroyed, it can rebuild and continue
to cause damage. It takes as few as 20 survivors to start producing eggs.
So, even if an inspector finds a gallery and it can be reached, many termites may survive and start a new colony. To
make matters worse, many spot treatments risk damage to your home and belongings.
Unlike spot treatments, Vikane gas fumigant spreads into every
inaccessible area of your home to kill every termite. It penetrates into the pores
of wood, altering the termites' breathing space. No termites are beyond
its reach. And none are left behind to start a new colony.
In fact, Vikane is the treatment of choice for many centuries-old
historical sites, where multiple hidden colonies have foiled spot treatment
No other drywood termite treatment compares to Vikane Gas. Vikane has
been proven in 25 years of university research, published reports and practical
use on homes like yours.
