We’re serious about our tools
Termite Pavilion and Home
The first area has more than 50 learning stations, which represent various foundation types and construction materials commonly encountered by termite specialists and residential sales inspectors in the workplace. Learners identify construction elements, avenues for pest entry, conditions conducive to infestations, and treatment challenges.
The second area is a slab structure for practicing vertical drilling, horizontal drilling, and liquid/foam application. The Rollins termite pavilion is considered to be highly innovative and was used as the model for other pavilions that were recently built at major universities.
