AKIRA termite treatment:
Today there are 435 species of termites living in Asia. Termite infestation have been one of the most serious pest invasions in Malaysia. These silent destroyers can jeopardise your property causing a big damage every year in Malaysia. Since 1900s, many subsequent studies dealt with termite taxonomy, and control of termites in agriculture and forestry.
Averagely in a year, about 70% of termite treatments were done on residential premises, 20% on industrial buildings (eg. manufacturing plants, factories, warehouses, etc) and 10% on commercial buildings (office complexes, shopping malls, etc). There has been a dearth of information about termite pests, especially those attacking structures and buildings in Malaysia over the last 10 years especially in Urban areas where the most common species are the Coptotermes. Beware of the colony are feasting at your property while you are sleeping at night.
Uncontrol termite invasion may pose danger towards your family if infestations are not handled well. Knowing the common areas of termite issues is very important nowadays. One of the major reasons could be due to the use of ex-rubber and oil palm plantations for residential housing projects. Many of these plantations were cleared during the period when commodity prices for rubber and oil-palm were not satisfactory. Most of the time, the trunks of the trees were chopped down, but the roots were left in the soil. This would have sustained the food source of the Coptotermes, until the houses were completed.
Like most Southeast Asian countries, control strategies against subterranean termites in the urban environment in Malaysia rely heavily on the use of soil insecticides. Basically, the usage of soil insecticides can be divided into pre- and post-construction treatments. A total of 48% of the total pest control business was done at pre-construction of the buildings, while the remaining was at the post-construction. Most of the post-construction treatment utilized dusting, trenching and corrective soil treatment.

How important are TBS (Termite Baiting System)?
Baiting the colony of Termite towards the outside of your house is always better than exterminating them while they are inside. So far, good results have been registered against Termite colony Early-Prevention and suppression or even elimination is usually achieved within 70 days upon baiting, upon observations after house/site inspection.
1) Termites feed on baits in TBS
2) After taking the bait, termites will die due to unable to shed their skin when growing (molting process)
3) When the colony dies, there is no more termite to bring food to the Queen. No more Queen, No more Termite Colony
