Termite Control

We take care of Pre and Post Construction Termite spraying. 

Pre-construction Treatment

Liquid residual pre-construction termiticide treatments can be applied to soil prior to home or building slabs being poured. These barriers can effectively prevent a subterranean termite infestation.

Post-construction Treatment

The post-construction termiticide treatment creates a treated zone around the perimeter of your premises by injecting termiticide into the ground to form a barrier between the soil and building structure.

Top Termite Treatment Methods

 
Drywood Termite Treatment
 
   Termite treatments fall into two main categories.: whole-house treatment, also known as tenting, and spot treatment, also called local treatment.

   Whole-house termite treatment involves fumigation. Typically, large tents are draped over the home to keep the fumes inside where they can kill termites.

   A less common type of whole-house termite treatment involves raising the temperature in the home very high. The home may reach between 120 and 150 degrees. Such hot temperatures kill termintes as enzymes within their bodies are denatured and cell membranes are destroyed.

Spot Treatments for Termites

 
Drywood Termites:
  
   While whole-house treatments are generally the most effective way to completely eradicate drywood termites, people opt for spot treatments for a variety of reasons. The most common reason is cost. Fumigating an entire home is more expensive than applying spot treatments.
 
Subterranean Termites:
 
   There are two main types of spot treatments for termites. One involves injecting liquid chemicals into areas where termite infestations are suspected. The other uses bait systems to systematically kill termites. Spot treatments are considered a risky approach to termite control.

 

Bait Systems versus Liquid Termite Treatments

 
Subterranean Termite Treatment
 
   There is a lot of debate about whether liquid termite treatments or bait systems are more effective for exterminating subterranean termites. Both measures are often used as means of prevention as well.

   A major drawback of bait systems is that they are usually spaced several feet apart, making it easy for termites to miss them altogether. Bait systems also aren’t designed to attract termites in any way.

   With full liquid termite treatments, there is a zone that goes all the way around a home, making it far more likely that termites will encounter the treatment zone. Another thing to remember about bait systems is that they usually take a long time to produce results.

   In some cases, bait systems can take as long 1-2 years to eliminate the original colony. Liquid termite treatments, however, can go to work immediately and a complete and thorough treatment can eliminate a colony in just a few weeks.
