Video Length: 9:27
Produced by: Matt Risinger

About 8 years ago I heard of a new method for Termite control that originated in Australia called Termimesh. This system utilizes a physical barrier to termite entry inside the walls of your house. This video is intended to show Best Practice termite control for Slab Foundations only. Pier & Beam or other foundations would utilize a different approach. -Matt Risinger Principle of Risinger Homes in Austin, TX
