WE PROVIDE A FIVE-YEAR WARANTEE ON TERMITE CONTROL!
Termites eat wood, and can consequently cause great structural damage to your home if left unchecked. A typical
homeowner's insurance policy does not cover destruction caused by termites, even though they cause over 1 billion dollars
in damage to homes throughout the United States each year. Our inspection and treatment program can help you understand the
threat of termites, and take the necessary steps to protect your home.
can’t assume your home is termite-free just because you’ve never seen them – they only swarm once or twice
a year, and you might miss it! We thoroughly inspect your home or business, looking for the tell-tale signs of termite
infestation. Some of the things we look for are:
- Mud tubes built for traveling above ground
- Damaged or hollow-sounding wood
- Pinholes in drywall or wallpaper
piles of sawdust
- Piles of small wings
- Other specific termite indicators
To control these unwanted pests, we provide an effective
treatment plan, which may include:
treatment- A whole house Tim-bor treatment may provide a 5 year Warranty on your home.
- Direct Contact - as possible, we apply chemicals directly to the pests
- Insect Growth - we apply chemicals which duplicate the insect's natural hormones to disrupt their
growth and development
- Tenting and fumigation
if absolutely needed
Subterranean termites are extremely destructive. First they build tunnels to wooden structures, and then they burrow
into those structures to obtain food. Any wood or cellulose-containing material constitutes termite food, and given time to
do so, they’ll eat until nothing is left but a shell. Termites avoid light and air, so they build their colonies where
you’re not likely to stumble upon them.
Is it a termite or an ant?
On the off chance
you do see them, remember that it’s easy to confuse termites with ants. Fortunately, there are features that distinguish
- bent antennae
- two sets of wings (one wing is longer than the other)
- thick waists
- straight antennae
- two sets of wings (same size)
