Termite Control & Treatment Methods

 
 
 
 
Termite Facts
 
 Subterranean termites are extremely destructive. First they build tunnels to wooden structures, and then they burrow into those structures to obtain food. Any wood or cellulose-containing material constitutes termite food, and given time to do so, they’ll eat until nothing is left but a shell. Termites avoid light and air, so they build their colonies where you’re not likely to stumble upon them.

Is it a termite or an ant?
On the off chance you do see them, remember that it’s easy to confuse termites with ants. Fortunately, there are features that distinguish them.

Termite Treatments
To control these unwanted pests, we provide an effective treatment plan which may include:
  • Exterior Protection - a continuous chemical barrier is created around the exterior of your home or building to keep termites from entering
  • Direct Contact - as possible, we apply chemicals directly to the pests
  • Insect Growth - We apply chemicals which duplicate the insect's natural hormones to disrupt their growth and development
