Termite tenting is  the name given to the process of getting rid of termites if you have a large  infestation in your house. This anti-termite technique is a very effective way  of dealing with the extermination of these pests. The process involves  protecting the area under the attack of termites with a tent or polyethylene  shrouds. After the tenting is in place, a termite killing gas is released and it  gets rid of pests in every nook and cranny of the house. Following is how to  prepare for termite tenting:What is Tenting? It is the  process of completely covering your affected property with a tent, tarp or a  polyethylene cover and then giving a full blast of an anti-bug spray, which,  when released, clears the place from this menace by eradicating all the  termites. Big fans are placed in different areas to circulate the gas in the  house. This procedure takes care of rampant termite infestations. This method is  great because not only does it take care of the ‘procreative’ adult insects, but  also of the future termites

Luckily the pesticides have changed to a new fumigant that is called Fulfuryl Fluoride or Vikand.  The beauty of this new pestiside is that if the roots of plants and the plants themselves are absolutely soaked with water, the pesticide will not be able to come in direct contact with the roots..which is a break through in the Tenting Process.  WATER IS AN EFFECTIVE BARRIER TO THIS TYPE OF GAS.


The other beauty to this gas is that once the tent is lifted, the gas rises upwards and dissapates into the air! Verses in the past having to wait 24 hours for the gas to disappear.

When you buy a home, make sure your buyers agent or sellers agent is dilligently out there soaking all the roots, shrubs and any foliage that might come in contact with the tent.
