FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Does the rain effect spray treatments?
Rain does not affect the application, and if anything; infact it helps activate the products.
Can termites attack concrete?
When it comes to termites, it doesn't matter if your home or office is built of concrete block or if it is sitting on a concrete slab without wood contacting the ground. Your property is still vulnerable to subterranean termites and once inside, they are difficult to detect until significant damage has been done.
How often should a property be treated for mosquitoes?
Are there different kinds of termites?
Yes, the three major kinds of termites in the United States are dampwood, drywood and subterranean. Dampwood termites commonly live in heavily forested areas of the country as they prefer wet wood; while, drywood termites, much more rare in the United States, prefer extremely dry wood. Subterranean termites require moist environments, live mainly in the soil and are the most destructive species.
How do you recognize termites?
Depending on where you live, termite swarms may be visible in the early spring. Termites are often confused with flying ants. Telltale signs of termite infestation include soft wood in the home, mud tubes on the exterior of your home (often near the foundation) and darkening or blistering of wood structures.
How much damage do termites cause?
Termites eat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, meaning damage to wood in and around a structure can happen very quickly. In fact, the NPMA estimates that termites cause $5 billion in property damage each year. The good news is that termites can be controlled with the partnership of a trained pest professional.
