I recently learned of a new product in the battle against termites. It is unique and might be worth looking into further if you find any termites or evidence of termites.
The product is called Altriset made by DuPont. By mimicking a substance found in certain tree bark, Altriset paralyzes the mouths of termites to stop them from feeding within hours of exposure. It also clings to their bodies undetected and enhances social behavior so that it is spread quickly throughout the colony. The claim is the home will be termite-free within three months and protected for years to come.
At the Altriset website you can enter a zip code and locate a professional who will apply this product. There are also laboratory and field studies by independent scientists to verify the claims of success.
