How does termite treatment work?

Termite treatment requires a number of procedures to ensure an infestation is completely eliminated:

  1. Treatment begins with a professional pest control expert thoroughly inspecting your property for signs of termites and diagnosing the severity of infestation.
  2. The type(s) of termites present will be determined and, from there, the best treatment method will be determined.
  3. The professional will work to identify where the queen termite is located.
  4. Treatment will be administered to tackle the infestation.
  5. After treatment is applied, pest control companies will almost always follow up after treatment to make sure it was effective, and to reapply treatment where necessary.

Termite baiting stations

About baiting stations

Designed to scientifically eliminate subterranean termite colonies, this treatment exploits termite biology and behavior. Worker termites take and transfer the bait throughout the nest, eliminating termites at the source. Though the bait inside is highly palatable to termites, it is non-toxic to children and pets.

This treatment disrupts the termite molting process, stunting their growth, and is applied to areas at most risk of attracting termites, such as moist soil or mulch, old tree stumps, irrigation sprinkler heads and downspouts. Above-ground and in-ground bait stations provide continual protection without causing damage to your property.

These unobtrusive stations help detect, monitor and target termite populations. Any evidence of increased termite activity will see an increased number of termite service visits to ensure optimum protection of your home.

Termite fumigation

About fumigation

The most effective of termite treatments, termite fumigation exterminates all termites - hidden or inaccessible - in one single treatment. Termite fumigation involves preparing and tenting your home, filling the tent with fumigant and wiping out the infestation in one fell swoop.

Termite fumigation involves careful preparation to ensure that the fumigation process is set up for success. Once the home is tented, precise amounts of fumigant (calculated based on a variety of factors including the temperature and size of the property) are released into the tent. The fumigant gas penetrates deep into the wood and permeates hidden areas such as crawl spaces, eliminating every last termite. The fumigation tent is then vented, leaving behind no surface residue or living termite.

Who should use this

Suited for homeowners and businesses with severe, widespread or inaccessible termite infestations.

Termite liquid treatment

About liquid treatment

Safe for children and pets both indoors and out, liquid treatment is applied to the soil beneath concrete flooring and or around the entire perimeter of your property's foundation to treat termites.

Installation of liquid termite treatment may involve minor alterations to the property (drilling holes into concrete, temporarily moving air conditioning systems, etc.). Treated zones will need to be periodically replenished. The length of time between treatments will depend on your property and the density of termite colonies in your region.

Find out which termite treatment is right for your home

How often should I treat my home for termites?

To avoid infestations, homeowners should have their home inspected annually for termites. Termite treatments last anywhere from 5 to 13 years depending on the type of treatment used and any signs of current activity. Your professional pest control company will help determine a custom termite treatment plan that outlines how often your property should be treated for termites.

It makes sense why some homeowners want to go above and beyond in preventing termites, but constantly administering treatment isn’t always the way to go, which can be costly and wasteful. A combination of preventative methods and regular inspections by a professional is the most effective way to ward off termites. A pest control company such as Western Exterminator, will also know exactly how much and what type of treatment will work best for your unique situation. It’s important to leave the hard work to the experts when it comes to deciding how often your home should be treated for termites.

What if my house has a history of termites?

If your home had an infestation 10 or even 20 years ago, it’s important to stay proactive on getting your home inspected and re-treated. Even though you’re no more or less likely to get another infestation than homes without a history of termites, treatments should always be reapplied in a timely manner. However, if your home was fumigated, it’s necessary to receive treatments more often because fumigation does not prevent future termites. On the other hand, certaain products have been known to last up to 13 years without the need for reapplication. The best thing to do is to contact your pest control company who work with you to delineate a plan that fits the unique needs of your home.

How much does a termite treatment cost?

The first step in determining the cost of termite treatment is understanding the problem. This is done through a free termite inspection. During that inspection, our Technicians will review several factors that will determine the most suitable termite treatment and its associated costs:

  • Type of termites - There are many different species of termites. Pinpointing the termite species will help determine the best treatment options for you.
  • Severity of termite infestation - If many termites are present, or if there is a very large termite nest within your property, you may require more extensive treatment.
  • Size of your property - The square footage of your property and premises will have a direct impact on the type of treatment used and the number of follow-up treatments required.
  • Size of termite infestation - In some instances, there may be more than one nest involved. Termites can also reach deep into wood structures, which may call for special termite fumigation services and follow-up treatments.
