White Ants Control & Prevention Services
Termites are often called ‘white ants’ because of their appearance, so if you’ve seen anything you’d describe this way crawling around, it’s time to take action before the damage they cause becomes substantial. Of course, prevention is always better than having to find a cure, so the best possible option would be to avoid an infestation entirely. But how?
This is what we can do for you:
White Ant Prevention
If you think your property may be at the risk of a white ant infestation, act on your hunch and take action before it becomes too late. There are a few things we can do to make sure you never have to deal with a white ant infestation. One is to install a termite monitoring system. This involves the use of termite bait stations, which are located on different parts of your property, especially around its perimeter of in order to detect termite activity. We will then routinely monitor these stations for termite activity. This method is entirely safe for your home, no matter its age.
Another method we can employ to ensure your property’s safety from a termite infestation is a physical termite barrier. Physical termite barriers are designed to stop termites from entering the structure where they are installed, thus forcing them out in the open where they can be detected and disposed of. This barrier is simply a layer of protective material that stops subterranean termites from entering your home. Another type of termite barrier you could choose is a chemical one. A chemical termite barrier involves applying a liquid chemical to the soil. This method can be used safely no matter the age of the building.
White Ant Control
Left untreated, termites can literally eat up your home. Termites cost homeowners billions in damages each year, generally more than fire and flooding combined. Every home, regardless of its construction type, can offer the ideal combination of warmth, moisture, and food for a termite attack, and so every home is essentially at risk. Not to mention that many homeowners’ insurance plans don’t cover any of the damage. As if that isn’t enough, hosting termites can lead to serious problems when selling a home.
The first thing we’ll have to do is come and inspect your home. We will perform a thorough examination of your home, checking for moisture and other risk areas that may attract an infestation. We utilize the most modern state-of-the-art equipment such as IR thermometers, moisture meters, and termite detection systems to make sure our diagnosis and the recommendations we give you are as accurate as possible. If we find a termite infestation or the potential for one, we will explain what the best solution to your problem is. Our solutions range from injecting the affected areas with special expanding foam that is used to fill voids and spaces in exterior and interior walls, under slabs and around pipes.
We will also utilize bait techniques that target locations around your home such as, old tree stumps, moist soil, roof downspouts and other moist areas. The bait present at bait stations disrupts the molting process termites require for growth, thus targeting the source of the problem and preventing the termites from multiplying further. Lastly, we will ensure your home and the surrounding area is consistently monitored for signs of any extra termite activity. Both of these techniques provide ongoing protection against future termite infestations without any damage to your landscape. ‘
