Some common misconceptions about getting termites include:
· “My house is brick so I don’t need to worry about termites”
· “No one in my neighborhood has had termites, so I don’t need to worry about them either”
· “I have a structure built on a slab, so termites can’t get into my house”
The facts are, termites can enter a home through a crack in the foundation as small as the thickness of a business card. Other popular points of entry are around plumbing and exterior walls.
Spring is coming soon and termites tend to swarm in early spring. If these swarms are observed around your home, it could be a warning sign that they are already feasting on your biggest investment. Your best course of action whether you see a swarm or not is to call a termite professional to inspect your home. Warrior Pest Control is pleased to offer the best termite protection on the market today.
We use a couple of excellent options to protect your home. For post-construction liquid treatments, we use Termidor. Once you’ve had your home treated by our highly-trained professionals, you will be issued a termite bond. This provides you with the peace of mind you need. We request to do an annual visual inspection of your property. This gives us information not only on wood-destroying organisms that might be lurking in your home, but we can also report to you any other issues we observe and offer recommendations to help you protect your home.
Another option that we are able to offer is a termite bait station system. We use the Hex-Pro Bait System and the Advance Bait System. Once the stations are installed, one of our termite professionals will come out and monitor them on a quarterly basis.
What are some of the recommendations we routinely make to our valued customers?
· Keep any mulch well away from contact with any structural wood
· Keep the area around your home clear of dead trees or stumps
· Store firewood away from any structures
· Keep gutters and down-spouts clear of organic material and accumulated moisture
· Grade or slope the soil away from your foundation near downspouts and around the structure
· Keep water pipes and faucets in good repair so that water does not leak
· Do not plant within three feet of your home
· Trim back limbs and branches so that they do not contact the structure
· Avoid moisture in crawlspaces
