When we discover signs of an infestation, we tell you upfront and devise a winning strategy to resolve your problem.
Termite Removal that Gets to the Source
More often than not, a termite infestation is an invisible war. These pests tend to burrow deep within your home's framework, preferring dark and damp areas to gain nutrients for the colony. Our experienced extermination crew has an eye for the details when it comes to termite removal. Our extermination methods include targeting the queen of the colony so that the rest of the infestation dies off with her. In addition, we employ preventative procedures to deter the development of a new colony.
Be on the Lookout for Termites
Termites may be tiny, ranging in size from ¼ inch for workers to more than 1 inch for queens and kings. However small they may be, they can wreak a huge amount of damage to your house, especially if not detected early. So what does a homeowner look for?
- Hollow Wood
- Mud Tubes on Outside Walls or Beams
- Cracked Paint
- Swarms of Winged Insects
- Wings Left behind after Terminates Have Swarmed
- Termite Droppings
When you notice one or more of these signs, call us to schedule terminate removal. Our exterminators come to your house to check out the signs and tell you about how we get rid of an infestation.
Taking Preventive Measures
Of course, the easiest way to eliminate termites is to prevent them from making a home on your property. One of the ways you can do this is to avoid having their favorite source of food available. Termites get their nourishment from cellulose, which is a fiber found in wood and paper.
Leaving wood, such as firewood, near the house attracts termites, as does damp soil around the house. The soil may be damp due to leaks from the gutters or downspouts. Then, too, small gaps around wires and pipes allow these pests to get inside your house and start a colony.
Depending on the construction of your house, its location, and the type of termite, our exterminators can provide you with preventive services. These include treatment for the pests themselves, as well as the wood -- which is their food -- and a bait and monitoring system. Call us to come to your house for exterminator services. We conduct an inspection and develop a customized plan of prevention or treatment.
Verify the Value of Your Investment
Termites are a threat to houses of all types -- not just wood. Whenever there’s wood or paper in the construction of your house, such as floors, drywall, and walls both exterior and interior, these pests can cause damage. We take these factors, as well as your household, into consideration when developing a plan for extermination services. Part of this includes the health of all in your house, from those with allergies and sensitivity to chemicals to children and pets.
