Dusting is a very ol'skoo method which is not used anymore. Experienced Termite companies would know bout this method.
It's a combination of three very very strong chemicals. Holes are puntured in Certain Termite Hot Spots such as Door Frame, Window Frame, Toilets, Plug Points, Wooden Skirting and Roof. Chemicals are like Talcum Powder
and it's very fine and dangerous.
What happens is that Termites will come in contact with this Powder and it won't die Immediately (that's the Idea). Never Kill Termites Immediately.
Infact they will carry this Powder back to the Colony and spread.
How Fast will the Chemical Spread and Eliminate the Colony...??It takes only 2 weeks (14 Days) to wipe out 99% of the Termite Colony...
It's very unlike Liquid Chemicals....
Liquid Chemicals are only meant to be for Future Penetration of Termites Underground. To cure termites on the Spot.
Dusting + Baiting is the Method (14 Days)
Drilling to avoid Future Penetration of New Colony
Below is the Dusting Process

There is no such thing of highrise of high floor, then won't face termite problem.
Termites need to feed on something, they go to where they can find good 'foods' and shelter place.
Bad Wood species + good moisture.
Termite like certain wood and dislike some others, as far as I had experience.
You can place 2 species wood side by side.
One can infested with termite, the other one can be still intact.

99% is wooden related materials.
Place a treated chengai batu wood beam, see termite willing to "chew" it or not?
Good Advice. Termites will eat not only Wood. But anything that is Cellulose Based. Can you imagine getting a Snicker Bar and Breaking into 2. What do you get inside...Pure Sugar (Energy) and Celullose.
So now think About this besides wood, what else is Cellulose Based....
Paper, Plaster, Wallpaper, Cardboxes, Books etc etc and the List Goes on.
Lets Look at the Picture Below that We don't come across everyday Damaged Wallpaper
Notice the Picture Frame. Take a Look at how did the termite actually Came From the Deco Light (SMALL MUDTUBE TRAIL) using the Ground Wire and Destroyed the Picture Frame This post has been edited by kanishen18: Aug 7 2012, 10:36 AM
