Q. Termite Prevention
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.

Q. termite
I'm see flying termite and white one in my house in the basement which is more effective in treating the problem phanton or dragnet if I'm think to drill hole around the four edge of the house.
A.   Not one product is "better" than the other for termite control and both will kill termites. However, we would like you to keep in mind that neither of these products, as well as most other liquid termiticides, are registered in the state of New York.

Q. I have had 3 companies come out. 2 companies said no termites the other said yes termites. Yesterday I was standing on a wooden planter became and it split in half and I saw white termites in the wood. 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?
A.  

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.
