When should I get a termite treatment?
If you do not know when your home was last treated for termites, it is best to call us today and schedule an appointment. Termite treatments by us typically last around 10 years, so if it has been longer than that since your home has had a treatment, then it is probably time for another one. Other pest control companies might use a different technique or different termiticides that only last a year, so it is critical to find out.
– What is the process of getting a termite treatment?
When we treat for termites, we will inject the termite treatment chemical all the way around your home, every 12 inches. This creates a barrier that the termites will cross. The treatment is a slow kill, this is by design. The termites will take the termiticide back to their nest where it will kill the rest of the colony. This technique is very effective and has lower toxicity for humans and pets.
– What are some signs that I have termites in my Azle home?
There are a few things that you can look for that might be an indication of termites. One is if you see wings around your home, especially near doors and windows. Another is if you see mud tubes going up the side of your foundation or any cracks in your foundation. You might also check the trim around your windows, termite damaged wood can be found by trying to stick a screwdriver through the wood. You can also tap on the wood and sometimes you will find termite damaged wood that sounds different. These are just a few things to look for, but if you have any concerns, it is always best to call us, a professional pest control company to come out and take a look.
Can I get termites in a brick home or structure?
Absolutely, under all of that brick is a structure made of wood. Wood is what termites eat, so they will go right through the brick to get to the wood. It is important to have a barrier between the ground and your home to prevent them from getting in.
How often should I get my Weatherford home inspected for termites?
If you have never had an inspection or treatment for termites, we recommend that you get one every year. If you have had a termidor treatment within the last 10 years, then you should be just fine as long as you do not see any indication. This is why using us for your termite treatment, as well as your pest control service comes in handy.
Our Pest Management Professionals will constantly keep an eye out for any signs of termite infestations and termite damage while we are treating your home for general pest control. From turning over logs close to your home making sure it is not full of soldier termites and worker termites in infested wood, to searching for signs of winged termites. They are actually interesting to watch if you ever feel brave enough to turn over some old wood, the termite workers look almost like a cross between ants and maggots, and the subterranean soldier termites will come out and try to fend you off and warn the colony.
What are winged termites?
Winged termites are termites that will leave their current nest in order to mate and start a new colony. Once the termite queen finds a mate, they will shed their wings and start to tunnel into the ground where they will start their new colony. Termite swarmers usually pop up around springtime after a good rain, but in the Azle, Springtown, and Weatherford, Tx area, it can actually happen any time of the year. This is why it is so important to have a barrier in place because if termites get into your home, they will eventually start their own colony and cause even more damage.
– Can I treat for termites myself?
We do not recommend it. Termite treatments are very detailed and require specific knowledge and equipment. You do not want to risk your home, and by the time you purchase everything, it is going to cost close to the same. And the chemicals such as termidor can not legally be purchased without a license.
Is there such a thing as termite prevention
Absolutely, you do not have to have a termite infestation to protect your home from subterranean termites. We can provide the same treatment that we use to get rid of termites, around the perimeter of your home to create a barrier. This will help prevent termites, including termite queens from ever getting into your home during termite swarms.
