15 Why include termite-related sections in the Florida Building Code? Infested with Termites Damage Heavy damage 21% St. Johns County Survey of five-year-old houses
16 Why is subterranean termite control so important now? Before 1988 chlordane, heptachlor, and aldrin were used as barriers and lasted over 30 years After 1988 (post chlorinated hydrocarbon era) repellent termiticides replaced old chemistries Termiticides are now required to provide 5 years of 100% protection when applied at the labeled rate
