Can termites put holes in your property as well as your wallet?
Yes, termites can cause many problems and the damage caused by termites could lead to high expensive repair.
Don’t wait until it’s too late to protect your home from termites.
Our homes are the largest financial investment for us. Termites can destroy these investments by causing major damage before we even know they’ve invaded our homes.
Many people are worried about the risk of termite infestations; though they wonder what impact termites will have when they enter their home.
According to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), it is estimated that termites cause more than $5 billion in property damage each year.
Termites are the most successful groups of insects on the Earth. Worldwide there are around 2,600 species of termites.
Termites are grouped into basic categories: Dampwood, dry wood, subterranean, Formosan.
Termites are often known as the “silent destroyer” as they secretly hide and attack our home and cause damage.
Termites generally like dark areas where they are not exposed to light and air thus requires a source of moisture to survive. Termites eat the dead plant, wood, paper, waste etc. making them destructive pests when they enter at home.
At our home termites will usually form a nest in walls, ceiling, wooden furniture, kitchen trolleys, or under the house.
Termites make their own colonies and each colony will consist of workers, soldiers, and reproductive termites. The soldiers are the one who defends the colony from other termites; the workers do the feeding and building of the nest, and the reproductive termite is the one which lay eggs.
When no signs of the infestation are noticed at the early stage the damage can occur to a high level, thus affects the structure of the house and damage the other items from the house.
Are termites harmful to human?
Yes, termites are harmful to humans as they always carry fungus on themselves due to which a person may suffer from allergic reaction, asthma attack and cause irritation when it gets in contact with our skin or a burning sensation occurs on our skin.

Termites swarm across New Orleans on Sunday night

Spring is in the air and if you are from Louisiana, you probably know that means something else is in the air too — termites. Swarms of the small flying bugs were out across the New Orleans metro area Sunday night (May 6), and we’ve got some pictures and videos to prove it.
Formosan termites are small, cinnamon-colored bugs. They were introduced to New Orleans and elsewhere in the U.S. after World War II, and have wreaked havoc on New Orleans buildings over the decades. They swarm when they’re ready to mate, and generally travel no more than about 300 yards from their nest.
Pesticides do not work against termites as they are not effective. In order to keep your home safe from termites we do require a strong solution and for this, our product Termirepel™ manufactured by C Tech Corporation is an anti-insect aversive which repels insects.
Termirepel™ works on the mechanism of repellency. It temporarily inhibits the mating cycle of the insects. The product impairs the ability of the insects to reproduce, that is the insects will not lay eggs or the laid eggs will be infertile. The product causes feeding disruption in an insect by triggering an unpleasant reaction within the insect which might try to feed on the application.
The product temporarily blocks the reproduction system of the insects by hindering the release of the vital hormones for growth.
Termirepel™ is an extremely low concern, low toxic, nonhazardous, non-carcinogenic and non-mutagenic insect aversive. It does not kill or cause harm to insects as well as to the environment which indirectly helps to maintain the ecological balance.
Termirepel™ is available in the form of the liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a predetermined ratio and be applied on the material which has to be protected from termites
Our product in the lacquer form can be applied topically to the applications. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like wood, concrete, metal, polymer, ceramic, cables, wires etc.
Our product in the form of the masterbatch, which can be incorporated into the polymeric applications like polymeric tree guards, pipes, wires, cables, polymeric material, instruments and equipment which we use at home.
Termirepel™ is thermally stable and does not degrade on exposure to heat and sunlight. It does not kill or harm the insect but repels them. It does not volatilize and does not degrade the soil. It is RoHS, RoHS2, ISO, REACH, APVMA, NEA compliant and FIFRA exempted.
