Termistop's Green Alternative to Pest Control Management Discussed on On Networks

Austin, TX, January 25, 2008 --( Termistop USA's green solution to pest control was highlighted in a segment of one of On Network's budding shows, Mainstream Green, which showcases environmentally safe ways to improve your home and life. Termimesh is a permanent non-toxic termite treatment and is critical to promoting green building.

Pest control is often associated with a lot of chemicals and sprays, some of which can be harmful. However, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) takes a different approach to getting rid of pests. IPM incorporates non-toxic or the least possible toxic solutions first, such as installing a physical barrier underneath and around the foundation, a borate treatment, or the use of Termimesh.

Peter Pfeiffer, FAIA, of Barley and Pfeiffer Architects, is a proponent of green alternatives involved with Termimesh.

"Termimesh is the only practical and permanent non-toxic termite treatment on the market. It is also a critical component to our efforts to promote 'real and relevant' green building. Specifically, it preserves the quality of the ground water and reduces the chance for indoor air quality problems – both associated with traditional chemical based treatments. It is the only system we use on all of our homes in Texas, and would welcome the ability to specify it for all of residential and commercial projects throughout the United States," Pfeiffer said.

Alex Petit, a high performance and Green builder in Central Texas, and host of Mainstream Green, discussed Termimesh and several approaches to reducing toxic exposure, saving money,and even your home's structure.

About Termistop USA

Termistop flanges and blockouts are designed to provide a non-chemical, long lasting termite protection at the service penetrations through the slab. Once installed, Termistop eliminates these hidden termite entry points because the mesh is too small to squeeze through and too hard to chew through. Termistop stops termites in their tracks.

Termistop is International Code Council approved for new construction, has completed 9 years of USDA Forestry Service Testing with no failures, and recognized by Green Building Industry professionals. Termistop is designed to eliminate the need for chemical retreatments in the interior of the home. Termistop USA gives homeowners a termiticide free living area.

Termistop is environmentally friendly.

Termistop Flanges and Blockouts are a non-chemical solution that prevents termites from entering the home at the service penetrations through the slab. The stainless steel mesh creates a "physical barrier" to termite entry when it "keys" into the concrete. By addressing these areas during construction with Termistop Flanges and Blockouts, PCO's reduce the need to apply chemical termiticides within the living space of the building.

Many green building programs around the country emphasize the use of physical barriers and non-chemical termite solutions. Termistop qualifies as a physical barrier in many of these programs and will capture points for the builder in some of the green building rating systems.

Termistop and the full Termimesh System have been specified in many high profile green building projects around the United States in both residential and commercial construction.
