The following is information on the behavior of termites, which will help you to find the best methods of Termites control for your home.

As we all know termites are considered one of the most destructive pests for homeowners. This is because of their wood diet, which can lead to destructive behavior on the house. If you do not detect or act quickly, termite treatment can become very expensive. History records billions of dollars worth of damages each year caused by these pests. Even though we stereotype termites as wood eaters, termites also crave for paper, insulation and other components of a house.

When termite infestation is obvious, we encourage our patrons to immediately and proactively take steps towards protecting their homes against termites and finding the proper termites treatment products to get rid of Termites as quickly and effectively as possible.

How to Get Rid of Termites: Proper Termites Control

Termites can potentially show up during any time of the year, but generally problems associated with termites come about during the spring time. Due to warmer climates and rainy days, it is this time of year where termites flourish, which may call for an effective termite killer. Termite colonies start to “spring” up and most of the time it is very difficult to manage. Due to subterranean and inner wood complications, with most termite situations, it is recommended to hire professional assistance for the best termite treatment and a home inspection should be called upon for a thorough check to verify the stage and severity of your termite infestation. Majority of termite problems do require professionals for controlled solutions. However, “doing it yourself” is encouraged when termite prevention is a concern to save money. For a reliable termite monitor and preventive control or the appropriate termites treatment with the baiting termite treatment method, we suggest looking into our Termite Baiting Systems.

Remember, identifying your termite species is crucial before any prevention control method or termite killer is applied due to termites’ location preferences. For instance, Subterranean termites prefer residing underground in soil while others, such as drywood termites will never touch soil and form their colonies within their wood resource. This may mean that, depending on the species, you will get rid of Termites with a ground termite treatment or use a labeled termite killer directly onto the area of infestation. Moreover, choosing the wrong termites control method for a certain termite will be ineffective and above all, a waste of money. After identifying your termite species, you can then select the right Termites control method that will help you achieve the best termite treatment with all the right termite killer products.

What is the best product to protect against Termite. termite control company wants to charge $900. Can I do it myself, how much will it cost? I have around 300 ft to protect.
A.   For subterranean termites, it is best to trench around the perimeter of the house. Termidor or Dominion are the leading products. You will use about 4 gallons of solution every 10 linear feet. Trenching will have a residual of about 4-5 years. If you are infested with drywood termites, Premise foam is effective for spot treatments.

I have no clue what kind or how to treat we have slab home with a wood framed screened in porch and a trex deck on the back. Any suggestions.
A.   We suggest using items such as Boracare on the unfinished wooden structures. This can be done by spraying the mixture directly onto the surface. Also, we recommend doing trench treatments onto the soil with Termidor for a perimeter treatment.

Q. Will diatomacious earth have any effect on termites?
A.   Diatomaceous Earth is a fossilized material that works on contact. Although it may have a short term effect on termites, it will not have a lasting effect at all. If you have a drywood termite infestation, you will have to treat that isolated area of infestation. If you have a subterranean termite infestation, you will have to treat the isolated area of infestation as well as do a perimeter ground treatment with either a termiticide or by setting up monitoring bait stations around the entire perimeter of the house.

Q. What time of year is it best to treat for termites?
How do you verify that an exterminating company is a good company?
A.   Although termites will remain active all year, it is best to treat after the winter in the spring. That is because it is easiest to apply termiticides or install stations when the ground is softer that the winter's frozen ground. Also, peak activity usually starts right as the winter is ending and into the spring. It really depends on your location. Also, services will sometimes over charge for labor and many times, services will undercharge without providing quality services. It's best to get estimates and compare. Also, look into reviews of the company and rely on your personal relations with other homeowners. It really is a judgement call.

Q. termite prevention
What can I use to prevent my home from getting termites?

Thank you for contacting us with your concern. If you have not yet found an infestation and want to use something as a preventative or monitoring purpose we have bait stations that you can plant around the perimeter of the structure in which you are wanting to monitor. All professional pest control companies use monitoring systems for termite treatment.

Termite Monitoring Systems

We carry several different brands of these professional use systems that you can refer to on the above link.

Once you have planted these stations it is recommended that you check quarterly to see if you can spot any infestation to any of the monitoring bases.

Once an infestation has been spotted to the monitoring cartridge you will need to exchange it out with the bait poison cartridge. Bait cartridges are only necessary inside the stations that have a spotted infestation.

Customers Testimonials
I am a DIY supporter. I don't employ exterminators to take care of my pest problems. I would like to o it myself. So, when my cricket problem got out of control I decided to do something. As per a friend's recommendation I bought 1 pint of Talstar Pro for 28.40. It is a great pesticide. The pests died after I used it on them. It worked really great and the residual effect stays up to 3 months. I can recommend it to anyone.
