Termite infestations are dreaded by property owners everywhere. These wood-destroying insects infest more than 5 million homes throughout the nation every year, and cost property owners thousands of dollars in repairs. Termites are most dreaded because it can be so difficult to detect them in properties without the help of a termite exterminator.
As soon as you suspect you may have termites, it’s crucial to call a termite exterminator who can detect them for you. From there, the experts at Loyal will implement one of our highly effective termite treatments to control the entire colony.
How to Control Termites
If you think you’ve seen the signs of termites in your property, it’s time to call a professional. DIY termite treatment is not an option, and treatment requires the help of a professional. The termite exterminators at Loyal will thoroughly inspect your property with the help of our K-9 Termite Detection team. If termites are detected, we will implement one of three extremely effective termite treatments: Altriset, Termidor, or Sentricon.
How to Prevent Termite Infestations
After we implement termite control in your property, it’s important to know how to prevent future infestations.
Some of the ways you can lessen the risk of getting termites include:
- Remove dead trees or stumps in the front, back, or side yards
- Stack firewood away from the home
- Make sure the downspouts from the gutters direct all water a good distance away from the foundation
- Ensure any landscaping or mulch that is not within 6 inches of the home’s foundation
- Repair all plumbing leaks to avoid excess moisture
- Avoid any direct ground-to-wood contact, especially around decks and porches
