Why Termite Treatment Is Crucial
Benefits Of Treatment
Termites aren’t often visible without close termite inspection, so many people aren’t aware of the benefits they may see when eliminating them. The biggest benefit that you can enjoy after your successful treatment is stopping the constant damage that they cause to your home’s or business’s structure. Since they eat wood and other cellulose components like drywall, flooring, and even cotton, stopping them in their tracks can save your building.
- Termites do not rest or sleep, so they will spend their entire lives eating and destroying anything they can
- The termite queen can lay approximately 40,000 eggs in a single day, so keeping ahead of the problem is crucial
- Termite damage can not only be unsightly, but it can cause significant structural damage
- Annual estimates from extensive damage are in the billions
- Termites can be detected with thermal imaging due to metabolic processes that generate heat
Types Of Treatment
When your pest control professional comes out initially, they may need to evaluate your control needs. Once their assessment is complete you will receive a full report on their findings and have the opportunity to discuss potential treatments. Potential treatments may include topical and surface spraying, laying chemical barriers, and setting bait and monitoring stations.
For termites in the house, for example, those in crawl space beams or between walls, we may recommend the use of sprays. These can be applied directly to the termite affected areas in the case of spot treatments, or they can come in the form of fumigation. Fumigation is often a more aggressive treatment that requires preparations to the inside of the house.
Termite barriers are physical barriers that can be installed during the making of the property, and in some cases, even in post-construction. They are usually a stainless steel mesh material that covers the slab and the service penetrations to prevent infiltration by termites. Some physical barriers can protect your place for 50 years.
Termite baiting is a great way for us to monitor the ongoing risk of termite infestation for your home. Bait stations are placed in the soil surrounding the home and will contain bait and termiticide that is then carried back to the colony.
Bait stations will usually be effective for up to a year and will allow your control professional to monitor nearby termite activity. Some bait stations can even be safely placed in the home, for added peace of mind.
Termite reticulation systems are trenched around the perimeter of the home and are either installed before the slab is poured, or added after construction. They allow us to directly apply termiticide to the soil surrounding the home, creating an exclusionary zone that prevents future infestations.
If foraging termites do come in contact with the reticulation solution, it does not kill them immediately and instead allows them to carry it back to the colony where it then begins to kill the colony. Reticulation lasts an average of 5 years per application but can last as long as 8 in ideal conditions.
