I have termites in the borehole water.

NEVER EVER ASSUME THE BOREHOLE WATER TO BE SAFE FOR CONSUMPTION!

Why are there termites in the borehole?

  • Termites in the borehole are a very common problem.
  • We find that every year during the rainy season clients complain about termites in their boreholes.
  • The clients complain about the smell of the water.
  • When they investigate they find dead termites.
  • Most of the time they see the dead termites in the water.

Where do the termites in the borehole come from?

  • The termites in the borehole have their nest around the borehole sleeve.
  • The reason they make their nest around the sleeve is because, sometimes the borehole pipe leaks and the area is a little wet.
  • When the problem arises it is normally a termite nest that is more than one year old.
  • Most of the time the grass is long around the borehole and that is the ideal environment for termites and ants to make their nest there.
  • The rain water makes the ground soft and the nest collapse and fall into the water.

Treatment of the termites around the borehole.

  • This treatment is also applicable to ants.
  • You can’t use any poison near the borehole.
  • That poison can enter the borehole and contaminate the borehole.
  • You must treat the insects with natural products.
  • The best is to use flour.
  • Just sprinkle flour on the ground around the borehole.
  • The ants and termites digestion system can’t digest the flour.
  • The insects actually starve to death.
  • No poison and the insects in dead.
