When you think of termite treatment, you might imagine whole-property fumigation. While we do offer this service, there are several other localized treatments that we can utilize to eradicate termite populations with precision.
Below are some of the most common types of treatments and what they entail.
This is a powerful way of protecting your new home or building from termites. What we do is apply diluted borate to wood features that are generally inside your building such as joists and sill plates. In combination with liquid termiticide treatments, this technique can offer you effective protection.
We can seal or treat decks, fences, steps, and other outdoor wooden features, which works best alongside other treatment options just as borate. We can also replace damaged wood with materials that are naturally termite-resistant or pressure-treated.
During construction, we can install termite shields or collars. These serve as barriers to entry in vulnerable places such as plumbing or electrical conduits, foundation walls, and support piers.
This is a proven method of protecting buildings from the destruction that subterranean termites cause. We apply the termiticide in the soil around and under the foundation of your home or business, creating zones of treated soil that are effective for up to five years, according to many estimates.
This treatment option is a unique solution for termite control in hard-to-reach places. It is a specialized combination of insecticides, water, and foaming agent. Once applied, the foam breaks down and leaves behind its active ingredients on interior surfaces that would be difficult to reach with liquid treatment alone.
Baiting and Dry Termiticides
Bait stations attract foraging worker termites, who unknowingly consume treated bait and share the poisoned food with their colony. Over time, this eliminates the infestation. Dry termiticide eradicates termites in a similar way as baiting, except inject the poisoned food in locations where we know they are actively feeding.
Fumigation is an effective way to eliminate termites by exposing infested areas or objects to sulfuryl fluoride gas. We can fumigate smaller objects like furniture in special chambers, or even an entire building through tenting.
