Why You Should Call in the Termite Specialists
When you have a termite problem, each day that passes means another day of damage to your property. termites can eat through wood, drywall, insulation, and even concrete in order to get to their food source – the cellulose found in plant matter. This means that they can cause extensive damage to your home in a very short amount of time if left unchecked.
With help from the right team of professionals, your termite problems can be solved quickly and thoroughly. Our team of termite specialists at Sigma Pest Control will…
Identify Where the Termites Are Coming From
The first step in solving any termite problem is to figure out where the termites are coming from. Termites are able to hide deep within the walls and wooden structures of your home. And in most cases, homeowners have no idea that they are even there until it’s time for a termite inspection. Determining the source of the location also involves determining how large of an infestation is present.
Before determining the proper course of action, our team of termite specialists will conduct a thorough inspection of your property in order to determine how these termites are getting into your home. Once the source has been found and the extent of the infestation has been determined, we can then begin to formulate a plan to get rid of the termites for good.
Determine What Type of Termites You Have
There are two main types of termites that can be found in the United States – dry wood termites and subterranean termites. It is important to determine which type of termite you have in order to create the most effective treatment plan possible.
Drywood termites are most commonly found in warm, coastal regions and typically nest in dry wood. These termites are able to chew through wood that has very little moisture content.
On the other hand, subterranean termites are found throughout the United States and typically nest in the soil. In order to reach their food source (wood), they build mud tubes that they use to travel between their nests and the wood they are feeding on.
Because both of these termite species can cause a great deal of damage to your home if left unchecked. That’s why it’s important to call in a termite specialist as soon as you suspect you have an infestation.
Apply the Necessary Treatment
Once the termite specialist has determined where the termites are coming from and what type of termite you have, they can then begin to apply the necessary treatment. At Sigma Pest Control we utilize a pest control method known as integrated pest management or IPM. IPM is an approach that uses both chemical and non-chemical methods to get rid of termites.
For much of the 20th century, termite treatment revolved around injecting liquid pesticides into a trench around your home’s foundation. However, there are many environmental and health concerns associated with this method of treatment.
Nowadays, termite specialists like those at Sigma Pest Control focus on using a variety of methods in order to get rid of termites while also minimizing the risk to human health and the environment. One example of a green approach to termite control is termite baiting. Termite baiting is a basic tenet of IPM that uses termite bait stations to lure termites away from your home and into the station where they will feed on a lethal dose of termite poison.
While there are many different methods that can be used to get rid of termites, it is important to remember that treatment should always be left to professional termite specialists.
Return for Follow Up and Preventative Treatment
Even after the termites have been eliminated from your home, it is important to return for follow-up and preventative treatment. Termites are a persistent problem in many parts of the country and can often come back even after you think they’ve been eradicated.
