According to Wikipedia, “Termites are a group of detritophagous eusocial insects which consume a wide variety of decaying plant material, generally in the form of wood, leaf litter, and soil humus.”
But in simple words, termites are wood-eating insects you don’t want looming around on your property. They gradually build concentrated nests and leave your property weak and hollowed – with severely high chances of lifelong damage and destruction.
So yeah, you don’t want them in your house.
But, Why Do You Need a Termite Control Service in Dubai?
You’re familiar with the weather in Dubai. The hot, humid climate in most parts of the UAE provides ideal conditions for their survival and reproduction. The warm and moist environment enables termites to feed on wood and other cellulose-based materials, which are abundant in buildings and other structures. Additionally, the sandy soil in Dubai makes it easy for termites to tunnel through, making it easier for them to travel and establish new colonies. The combination of these factors makes Dubai a prime location for termite infestations.
Moreover, there are various types of termites that need to be dealt with differently, making it hard for a non-professional to efficiently get rid of them.
There are two main types of termites commonly found in Dubai:
Subterranean termites: Also known as ‘White Ants, ’ live in the soil and build their colonies underground. They are the most destructive type of termite and can cause significant damage to wooden structures.
Drywood termites: These termites do not require soil contact and live in dry wood. They are less destructive than subterranean termites but can still cause damage to wooden structures.
How Can You Know if Your Property is Infested?
The most visible sign you should look for is tiny pin-found holes in your drywalls. Some other common signs you can consider are discolored or droopy dry walls, peeling paint, loose tiles, and squeaky floorboards. Also, if the wood sounds hollow when you tap it, it is also a sign of termites infesting your property.
Types of our Anti-Termites Treatment
There are two types of termite treatments based on time. We offer both of them. They are as follows:
- Pre Construction Anti Termite Treatment
This termite control service is performed before the construction of your house or office, or other building. This prevents the future infestation of termite control in Dubai. This includes all the technical work, such as using specific insecticides before the placement of any slab.
- Post Construction Anti Termite Treatment
Post-construction termite control treatment, as the name suggests, is performed at any time after your house, office, or any other structured building is constructed. Whether you want to stay on the safer side or termites have already attacked your property, you can get this service to eliminate termites effectively.
How We Keep Your Space Termite Free?
The following are two methods that we use to control termites and keep your property termite free:
- Soil Trenching Method
In the soil trenching method, we remove 2 to 3 inches wide and 4 to 5 inches deep slightly loose soil from the property’s perimeter – thus, making a trench. Then we flood it with a termiticide spray mix to eliminate termites. This method is especially effective when you want to prevent termite infestation.
- Drilling and Injecting Method
In this method, we make holes 8 to 18 mm in diameter and 1 to 1.15 m apart from each other around the infested areas. Then we inject the termiticide spray mix with pressure in these holes. It helps create a termiticide barrier against the termites. This method is ideal for post-construction termite treatments.

- Are termite control treatments safe for my family and pets?
Yes, we use non-harmful solutions that effectively kill the pests in your properties without leaving long-term effects to keep your loved ones safe. Moreover, staying out of the property for about 72 hours is recommended. This is to ensure that the used gas can be dissipated entirely and it’s safe for you to return.
- How long does termite control treatment take, and when can I return to my home?
Typically the process takes around 24 hours, but you would have to stay away from your property for about 72 hours for safety reasons.
- How often should I have my home inspected for termites?
It depends upon your home location, history of infestations, and dampness in the area. It’s typically recommended to get your home inspected once a year. But if you have an older house, you should be more cautious, regularly review it on your own as well as get it more frequently checked professionally.
