Subterranean termites start nests in the soil then extend the colony into structures where damage occurs. Because the "root" of the colony is always in the soil, termite treatments usually involve applying insecticide to the soil. "Pre-treatment" is a term for termiticide that is applied to the soil. This description relates principally to the South Florida area. It refers to the use of toxins applied to the soil as a means of blocking concealed access to a structure by subterranean termites. Most new structures in Florida are treated against termites during the initial construction process. These applications of poisons into the soil under and around buildings being constructed are what is commonly referred to as pre-treatments. A termite pre-treatment is intended to create a barrier of termiticide between termites found in the soil and wooden structures of the building. In effect, large volumes of emulsion are needed to effectively fill the soil around the foundation walls, support piers and the soil to be covered with concrete slabs.
