Our Termite Extermination Process
To develop a treatment, your certified Master Trained Termite Technician will inspect your home, locate the termite infestation, and identify the termite species behind it.
Apply Termiticidal Treatment
Different types of termites require different types of termite treatment. Your technician will select and apply the appropriate treatment plan such as fumigation, liquid termiticides, or bait systems.
Repair Termite Damage
Once the termites have been eliminated, damaged wood and structural components will be repaired if possible, and otherwise replaced.
Ongoing Termite Protection
In order to prevent future termite activity, it is absolutely essential to stay vigilant. The best way to handle termite colonies is through prevention measures – not treatment. Talk with your technician about our termite bond and monthly pest control services.

How do I know if I have a termite infestation?
Signs of termites can vary depending on the species of termite, but common indicators include:
- mud tubes on exterior walls
- hollowed or damaged wood
- discarded termite wings near window sills or baseboards
- visible termites
If you notice any of these signs, it’s crucial to get a professional inspection as soon as possible. Termites can cause significant structural damage if left untreated.
Are your termite treatments safe for my pets and family?
Safety is a priority when it comes to termite treatment. The insecticides we use are EPA-approved and are applied by licensed, trained, and certified professionals to minimize risks. Your technician will be able to offer you more specific recommendations based on the type of treatment which was applied.
What are common types of termites?
While all termites feed on cellulose containing materials, like wood and drywall, there are different types of termites, each with distinct characteristics and habitats:
- Subterranean Termites: These are the most common and destructive type of termite in the United States. They build intricate tunnel systems in the soil and are known for their mud tubes that provide moisture while they travel between their colony and food sources. The Eastern Subterranean Termite is the most widespread species within this category.
- Formosan Termites: A subtype of Subterranean termites, Formosans are an invasive species known for their aggressive behavior and large colonies. They are most common in the southern United States.
- Drywood Termites: Unlike Subterranean termites, Drywood termites do not require contact with soil. They infest dry wood, such as that found in attic spaces, and can create multiple colonies within a single structure. They are typically found in warmer climates.
- Dampwood Termites: These termites are typically found in damp and decaying wood. They are uncommon in homes and are usually found in woodpiles, stumps, or fallen trees.
Can I tackle termite extermination as a DIY project?
While the idea of DIY termite extermination might seem appealing to some, we strongly advise against attempting to handle a termite problem without professional assistance. Termites are notoriously difficult to eradicate and can cause extensive damage to your property if not properly treated.
DIY methods are often ineffective and can result in the termites simply relocating to another part of the property, continuing to cause unseen damage. Inadequate treatment can also give homeowners a false sense of security, delaying professional intervention and increasing the risk of significant structural damage. For these reasons, we recommend consulting with a certified professional for a thorough inspection and treatment plan tailored to your specific situation.
What steps can I take for termite prevention?
Preventing termite infestations is crucial to protecting your property from potential damage. While there are general preventive measures you can take—such as reducing wood-to-soil contact, maintaining proper drainage, and keeping mulch away from foundations—the most effective way to ensure long-term protection is through professional treatment.
We offer a Monthly Termite Treatment Plan designed to proactively guard your property against termite invasions. This may include using a liquid treatment such as Termidor and/or installing Sentricon bait stations, and regular inspections.
