Termites are nasty pests that can cause thousands of dollars of structural damage to your home. Luckily, termite control services can help. Keep reading to learn what you can expect after a termite control service.
When you call a termite control service, the first thing they do is a comprehensive inspection inside and outside your home. Termites are tiny and hard to see, so they check for visible damage and areas susceptible to termites. This includes areas of moisture, like interior plumbing, crawlspace, and basements. But not all live termites live in damp areas. You could also have dry-wood termites that enter through vents, attics, and windows.
After the inspection, the service will create a custom plan for your home based on termite types in your area. Dry wood termites get direct wood treatment, but for damp area termites, there are some options.
First is the direct liquid treatment. The termite control service uses a flow meter to measure the termiticide needed and then applies it to the foundational structure of your home as far as four feet deep. Next, they then fortify any areas of concern with foam and set bait and monitoring stations installed in-ground around your home’s exterior every 10 to 20 feet.
