The purpose of this procedure is to follow proper activities to carry out Anti termite treatment
works. This purpose of this treatment is to create a chemical barrier between the ground from
where the termites come and wood work, cellulosic materials and other contents of the
buildings which may form food for the termites.
It includes Anti termite treatment and creating a chemical barrier by using emulsifiable
concentrate 20% or equivalent for plinth beams and all- round the column pits, trenches, back
fill, plinth filling, junction wall and floor, at external perimeter of building from natural ground
level new soil level for all buildings. The work shall be carried out strictly in accordance with IS
6313(Part-2), specifications and corresponding approved drawings.

Following documents in totality or in part shall form the reference documents:
1. BOQ / Relevant drawings :
2. Code for pre construction anti termite treatment is IS 6313 part II – 2001.

4.1 Materials
1. Approved Specialized agency with skilled laborers having experience in anti termite
treatment to be employed
2. The chemical emulsion ( Chlorpyrifos) concentration and the rate of application shall be as
specified by the Codes/Specifications/or as specified by the manufacturer

Site preparation
The removal of stumps, logs or roots from back filling /plinth filling soil at building site Reduces
the hazards from termites. The sub floor area should be kept free from all debris in which new
colonies of termites might be established. In order to ensure uniform distribution of the
treating solution and to assist penetration some site preparation may be necessary as
follows :

All sub floor levelling and grading should be completed, All cuttings and excavations should be
completed with backfilling in place, borrowed fill must be free from organic debris and should
be well compacted. Treatment to be carried out when the soil is dry by suitable hand operated
sprayer to facilitate uniform disposal of chemical emulsion to form an effective chemical
barrier around the building Treatment should not be carried out when it is raining or when the
soil is wet with rain or sub-soil water.

5.2 Procedure

5.2.1 Treatment of top surface of plinth filling

The top surface of the consolidated earth within plinth walls to be treated with chemical
Emulsion uniformly on the soil before the sand bed/Soling is laid to form a chemical
barrier at the rate of 5 liters/m2 by using 12 mm dia. Ms rod, holes to be made at a
Minimum of 50 mm to 75 mm deep at 150 mm centres both ways.
5.2.2 Treatment for RCC foundations and Basement.
a) For RCC foundations, the concrete is dense being a richer Mix, the termites are unable to
penetrate it, it is therefore, unnecessary to start the treatment from the bottom of
Excavations. The treatment shall start at a depth of 500 mm below the ground level
except When such ground level is raised or lowered by filling or cutting after the
foundations have been cast. In such cases, the depth of 500 mm shall be determined from
the new soil level..The treatment to be carried out after the ramming operation is
completed by rodding the earth with a 12 mm Dia. MS rod at 150 mm centers close to
the vertical surfaces area around RCC foundations/Columns at the Rate of 7.50 Liters per
b) In some places if plinth level is 500 mm more than Natural Ground level, the entire GL.

5.2.3 Junction of walls and floors

1. Small channel of 30 x 30mm to be made at the junctions of walls and columns with the
floor and the rod holes will be made in the channel area for a depth of 100 mm and
150mm apart and the rod moved backward and forward to enlarge the hole and the
chemical emulsion to be poured along the channel at the rate of 7.50 litres per sqm of
the vertical wall or column surface so as to soak the soil right to the bottom.
2. The soil to be tamped back into the place after this operation.

5.2.4 Soil along external perimeter of building:

1. The earth along the external perimeter of the building to be rodded at intervals of
150mm and to a depth of 300mm.
2. The rods to be moved backward and forward parallel to the wall to enlarge the hole and
chemical emulsion to be poured along the wall at the rate of 7.50 litres per sqm of
vertical surfaces.
3. After the treatment, the earth to be tamped back into the place. The earth outside the
building to be graded on completion of building; this treatment to be carried out on
completion of such grading.
