Research shows that the fear of a termite infection far outstrips the fear of cockroaches, spiders, or rodents and is triggered by a need to provide protection for the family and prevention of damage to the valuable investment that is the family home. It is better to hire an exterminator company to do regular inspections than to wait for a problem to rear its head. Unfortunately, termites are silent destroyers that don’t give warning signs until it is too late and a lot of damage has already been done.

In most states, exterminators are required to be licensed and also to hold a license to handle pesticides and chemicals inside buildings. Most exterminator companies have employees that are bonded to protect themselves and you from damage caused by employees while working on your property. A qualified exterminator will identify the type of termites, the extent of the infestation, and propose the best solution to eradicate the problem and prevent further infestations. Before hiring the services of an exterminator check if the company has a strong track record and check reviews.
Termite extermination begins with a thorough inspection to determine the size and type of the infestation, identification of any moisture problems, identifying possible points of entry, and finally proposing a plan of eradication and future control.
Localized treatments are generally not effective as termites do not nest at the points of damage and will simply re-emerge at a different location. Worker ants find their way to a food source, harvest the cellulose from the wood and return it to the nest which is located beneath the ground some distance away.
A registered termiticide chemical is pressure-injected into pre-drilled holes into the concrete foundation and the interior cavity of walls flooding the soil and walls with poison. When the holes are sealed it forms a chemical barrier that prevents further infestation from occurring.
Pre-construction termite protection has become an important consideration where a termiticide is applied before and during the construction of buildings to prevent termite infestations. This provides long-term protection, is cost-effective, and prevents structural damage to the property from termite colonies. Ongoing maintenance and checks ensure that termites are discouraged from entering and located and eradicated the minute they are detected.
Fumigation is well recognized as an effective way to exterminate and control termites. A wide range of fumigation services ensures the most suitable treatment for your termite problems. Pest control technicians are highly trained and experienced in specialist fumigation services. Fumigants disrupt the delicate metabolism of termites when inhaled, effectively killing off the entire colony. This method is quick and easy and used to target an entire structure.
As soon as any signs of a termite infestation are detected you should immediately call for termite removal services to contain the damage and prevent further damage to the structure of your home.
