STRUCTURAL ISSUES RESULTING FROM TERMITE INFESTATIONS

When wood is damaged due to termites in your home, various problems can occur. We will look for issues such as mudtubes (as seen in photos) blistered or sagging floors, unexplained cracks in walls or ceilings, and windows and doors that no longer slide smoothly. If weakened or hollow-sounding wood is detected, termites may be feeding under the surface.

Needless to say, all these things can bring about serious safety hazards. Children playing can fall through weakened boards on the floor or railings can collapse. Our qualified team is committed to safety and will ensure that you and your family are not subjected to severe safety issues.

After the damage has occurred and we detect and infestation and conduct bug control, our staff will offer a recommendation on repairs to the home to restore the original safety. We leave nothing to chance and don’t take security lightly. Our team practices safe work methods and stays alert about the safety of people and pets around them.

TREATING THE TERMITES

There are a couple of typical treatments used to rid a premise of termites. There is the liquid treatment which creates a barrier between the structure and the ground in an attempt to block them. Then there are the baiting systems that is used and is a safe and unobtrusive method. They are placed around the perimeter of a property and in turn, trap the termites.

Termites ingest the cellulose (sugars) out of the wood. The more cellulose the workers take back to the queen, the bigger her colony gets. Once all the cellulose is gone from the wood, the wood is usually not very sturdy and gets weak. 

When the culprits have already reached your home, a liquid treatment is most beneficial. Baiting systems are also good when a liquid treatment cannot be performed. Termites cannot detect (or see) the bait until they bump into the bait. Once they bump into the bait and taste it, they send a pheromone back to the other termites to come feed on the bait. Performing a Conventional Termite Treatment (with liquid) gives a barrier around the house for many years. The barrier treatment stops termites from getting to your foundation and destroys the colony. When they hit the termiticide, it sticks to them. Once the following termite tries to groom the infected termite and they both get infected.

No matter how small a problem you might have, you can rely on our expertise to provide you with termite control.
