Have you ever heard of a microwave treatment process used to kill termites?
Well if you haven’t heard, It has existed since1994 and if you have heard something about it, then you may be interested in hearing about some of it’s finer qualities.
(1) How Do Microwaves Kill Termites?
Quite simply by cooking them within their living habitat similar to the way one heats up a cup of coffee in a microwave oven.
(2) At what heat temperature do termites die?
Microwaves when applied to termites that are living within generated microwave penetration range are heated quickly to a scientifically proven lethal heat dosage rate of 128 degrees Fahrenheit or 53.5 Celsius.
(3) How long must they be exposed to lethal heat range?
Dry wood termites surrender to rapid thermal death when exposed to their established lethal heat temperatures for as little as a 5 minute duration period.
Microwave treatment of termites is becoming more popular because of the benefits attained from no poison gas or toxic chemical usage. Public demand for alternatives to old School high risk poison applications continues to grow and become a major treatment concern.
Microwave application as used to kill termites is truly the wave of the future here today. It’s advanced research development and increased use as an alternative to lethal poison gas is anticipated to continue to be a public growing favored preferred treatment decision well into the future.
One major benefit of microwave termite treatment use in lieu of whole structure poison gas fumigation is that deaths from poison termite gas exposure will occur less often period
