Termite Control

How Do You Know If You Have Termites?

Most people realize they have termites when the signs become too much to ignore. For example, when there are winged pests swarming a certain area of your home, it is fairly obvious that a problem exists. Mud tubes also indicate the presence of termites, and most people are aware of what these tubes mean when they see them.

However, there are less obvious signs to watch for as well. For example, peeling painting and discolored drywall can both signal a termite infestation. Noisy floorboards, windows and doors that won't open, and little holes in the drywall are other signs. It is a good idea to have regular inspections to ensure that a termite infestation doesn't take hold of your house without you realizing it.

What Should You Do About A Termite Infestation?

There are many ways to get rid of termites. It is important to ask for help as soon as you recognize that there is an issue; you don't want the infestation to continue to grow. Termites destroy wood, which means that the structure of your home can be compromised if they are allowed to remain. Pest control professionals use a variety of tools to help them get the problem under control, like liquid termiticides and baits. If you are concerned that the problem may return, ask us about a continuing service plan.

FAQ

How much does termite control cost?

On average, termite pest control services may cost between $120 and $150 per treatment. This average cost is determined by the size and severity of the termite infestation, and preventative inspections cost less as clients are charged per square foot rather than per linear foot as is the case in an active infestation. Pre-construction homes cost less than a built home currently infested with termites. Even after an infestation is eliminated, homeowners should get a yearly inspection that averages $100 to $125 per year. At Bug Guys Pest Control, we offer $75 off your home's first extermination service as well as military discounts and competitive pricing.

How often should you treat your house for termites?

Your home should be inspected for termites at least once a year. Some owners will wait much longer to have their homes checked for a further infestation. Termite treatment lasts five years or more. When chemicals are used in and around the house and termites begin to die, you won't typically see them come back for a while. However, scheduling a yearly, quarterly, or even monthly inspection can help you nip future infestations in the bud before they cause extensive damage. With Bug Guys Pest Control, you can schedule termite control services and inspections as often as necessary as we offer flexible scheduling to keep your home safe and comfortable.

How does professional termite control work?

If you suspect that you have a termite infestation, a pest control professional will initially come into your home and inspect the area that you think maybe infested. They will determine the severity and size of the problem, and this will help determine the cost as well. Termite removal methods include fumigation, pesticides (applied topically or drilled into the house), and solutions that are naturally poisonous to termites (orange oil, etc.). Various options are available, so communication with your pest control professional is essential. Heavier infestations may require multiple treatments. Termite pest control professionals have the tools, chemicals, and knowledge necessary to take care of the problem.

Is termite control necessary?

Termites cause millions of dollars in damage every year. While some homeowners may never notice problems with termites, a yearly inspection can help prevent a significant amount of money in losses. It costs an average of $100 to $125, and it is an investment in your home's safety and longevity. As well, if you are looking to purchase a new home or placing your current home on the market, sellers and home buyers alike want to be sure that they will not have an unexpected termite problem. Wood destroying organism (WDO) reports can be found through the state, and it is often required through insurance.

How is a termite infestation treated?

Termite infestations are treated with two methods: with chemicals, pesticides, or oils, or with the baiting method. Baiting methods require a pest control professional to try and attract termites with a poison that they will bring back to their nest and, ultimately, it will kill them all over time. Liquid treatments require drilling into the areas of your home in which the termites live, and chemicals are applied to eradicate these pests. For severe infestations, pest control professionals may have to come back for multiple treatments to eliminate the problem.

What termite treatment is the most effective?

While there are various termite treatment methods available, there are two primary treatments - baiting and liquid treatments. The baiting pest control method is an attempt to attract termites with poison that they bring into their nests, killing the entire colony. Liquid treatment, whether it be concentrated oils or pesticides and other chemicals, is the most often used and most effective method for eradicating a termite infestation. Pest control professionals apply chemicals or pesticides to soil areas around the home via drilling to get into the deepest parts of a termite nest. When you suspect that you have a termite infestation, your pest control professional will help determine the best treatment for your home.

Can termites come back after treatment?

After you've worked with a pest control professional, unfortunately, termites can go back into your home to try again. Termite treatment is a detailed and involved process, and after the pests are eliminated, a pest control professional will create an invisible barrier around your home or property to prevent termites from returning - although they can. It is best to schedule a yearly inspection to make sure that pests have not come back. If they do come back, an annual inspection can help you to catch an infestation before it becomes too severe.
