Did you know termites can devalue a home by more than 25%?
If you find yourself under attack by the destructive nature of termites, you want someone you can trust to quickly restore your sense of comfort and safety. At Western Exterminator, our termite treatment plans are tailored specifically for your particular needs.
Fact: A termite colony can consume 5g of wood per day. May not sound like much but without treatment they can remain in a property, undetected, for years.
Our Termite Treatment Plans are the best way to take action against a termite attack. To prevent termites before they strike, ask about our Homeowner Protection Plan that can protect your home from both subterranean and drywood termites. Our Termite Expert will recommend a specific solution that best suits your individual situation.
This plan is a form of prevention and treatment. It involves the use of unobtrusive tamper-resistant termite bait stations, which are placed around the perimeter of your home or structure to detect and eliminate the termites. These stations are filled with bait at the time of installation and immediately start the demise of any colonies as well as protect the structure from possible subterranean termite infestation.
Your Western Exterminator Termite Expert will monitor these stations twice each year for termite activity and replace the bait as needed. The bait lasts over a year and university studies show it actually becomes more attractive to termites with age. They seem to like it best when it’s a little more "seasoned." Each station also holds enough bait to eliminate an entire termite colony.
Much like ancient empires, termite colonies are organized into a caste system from which there is no chance of advancement unless you’re the lucky female that’s the queen, who (along with the king) establishes the colony and therefore rules the roost. The lowest rung of the termite totem pole is occupied by the workers, who are also the most numerous members of a colony.
Why so many lowly workers? They’re the ones responsible for rustling up the cellulose that feeds the entire colony. Without the workers, the colony can’t survive. As the termite workers consume the bait and take it back to the nest they share the toxicant with other colony members thereby eliminating the colony.
The termite baiting system is not only 100% effective in eliminating the colony, it’s also environmentally responsible. The bait is placed in a tamper-resistant station and doesn’t leach or volatilize.
The science behind the termite bait exploits termite biology and behavior. Worker termites readily transfer the bait throughout the termite colony with the end result being total colony elimination. The premier bait used in our bait stations was the first product registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under the strict requirements of the Reduced Risk Pesticide Initiative.
This distinction was based on its low impact on human health, low toxicity to non-target organisms (birds, fish and plants) and low potential for groundwater contamination when compared with other commercially available termite treatments.
If termite activity is found, an above ground baiting solution can be used. Above ground bait stations are placed on termite activity within the home or other structures. The termites consume the bait and take it back to the nest, therefore infecting and eliminating the colony.
The bait inside the stations is highly palatable to termites but non-toxic to pets and children.
This form of termite prevention and treatment involves the use of unobtrusive termite bait stations, which are placed around the perimeter of your property to not only detect but to fight subterranean termite activity. Once installed, the active bait forms a immediate protection device to fight and defeat the termite colony. Termite workers consume the bait and take it back to the nest. Termites are social insects and the bait transfers during the feeding of their nest mates, infecting and eliminating the colony.
