Termite infestation is a real problem that requires real solution, according to Jardine Distribution Inc., a wholesale distributor of agricultural and applied construction chemicals.
“Your house is one of your biggest investments, but turning it into a home is taking it to another level,” says JDI, a member company of the Jardine Matheson group.
“But how can you call your house a home when your family is not safe in it because of possible termite infestations? Not only your house’s foundation is at risk, but also your family’s health,” the company says.
JDI says while most homeowners focus on wood preservation, they are not aware that some termites come from soil. “It is also a must to treat our soil with termite solutions,” it says.
It says that while Solignum wood preservative has protected Filipino homes from termites, wood borers and fungi over the past six decades, there is a need for total termite protection.
“The total termite solution is a reminder and a tool to homeowners that it is important to protect the outside of our home from termites as it is inside,” it says.
JDI says Soilguard, which is a support to existing Solignum products, aims to protect homes from subterranean termites found in soil by providing lethal barrier that prevents them from entering the structure.
“It kills any termites that comes into contact with, which is a cost-saving and efficient solution. Solignum wood preservative on the other hand helps protect and preserve the wood from the termites, wood borers and fungi,” it says.
