What is a "No Drill" termite treatment?

What is a No Drill termite treatment

What is a “No Drill” termite treatment?

A “No Drill” treatment is typically a termite service where only exterior “soft areas” of a structure are trenched to allow a liquid application.  The soil is then put back into the trenches to complete the service.

Is a “No Drill” treatment cheaper?

Initially a “No Drill” treatment can be cheaper as money is saved in labor and chemical costs.  Given the foraging nature of our native Arizona termites those savings can be offset by future re-infestations.

Does Bills Pest & Termite offer “No Drill” termite treatments?

No…we discourage “No Drill” termite treatments…the only way to stop native Arizona termite infestations is to establish a continuous barrier in and around a structure.  Leaving untreated areas is an invitation to foraging termites.  Average lots in Phoenix can have 10-15 different colonies of Arizona termites…so it’s just a matter of time before a termite colony will find an untreated avenue into your home.

Additionally, Arizona termites seek moisture under abutting slabs of a structure to survive.  Not treating these areas reduces the potential success of a termite service.

Why do so many Exterminators in Phoenix offer “No Drill” termite treatments?

Simply put…it’s a way to make a fast buck.  An exterminator can turn a 2-4 hour service into a 30 minute job and use only a quarter of the termiticide.  Doing 5-6 of these services a day is fast money.

Any advice for homeowners considering a “No Drill” treatment?

Yes…get a complete termite service by a carefully screened termite exterminator that uses a quality termiticide and knows our Arizona termites.  It may cost a few dollars more up front…but you are more likely to eliminate current and future termite infestations and less likely to deal with structural damage.
