How do termites get to my home?
What do I do if I have termites?
Call a reputable termite professional to inspect the home. If termites have been confirmed, what type of termites are they? Positive identification of termite species type is crucial to determining the proper treatment approach.
What type of chemicals are used?
There are many products available to pest control professionals. One of the best products available for termites is Termidor. Termidor has an impecable track record and should be used for all post-construction termite treatments.
Does Termidor kill them right away?
Termidor is not a contact kill. It's a non-repellant chemical that is applied to a trench dug around your foundation. The trench is filled with Termidor, then the earth is returned as it was found. Termites are very social insects, termidor exposes this characteristic. Being an non-repellant, the termites move through the treated soil unknowingly. Their bodies become a toxic transport that is shared with the rest of the colony. This transport process could take between 1-3 months for complete eradication. After just two weeks, the termites chewing mouth parts (mantibles) are rendered inoperable, thus the bleeding stops.
How much does a termite treatment cost?
Termite treatments can vary depending on the linear footage of your home. Other things may factor into the cost like foundation prep. If there's bullrock or heavy shrubs against the foundation, it will take longer to prepare the home for treatment.
