Termite Control- An Overview

It is no secret that termite control is a serious endeavor. Termites can wreak havoc on structures, especially wooden ones, and can cause an immense amount of damage to structures over time. The costs of termite control can be astronomical and many homeowners and business owners do not want to take on the cost of termite control. However, the long-term savings from termite control far outweigh the initial costs, especially when there are no secondary issues. When termite control is initiated early enough, it can prevent further destruction and loss of property and overall damage to people and buildings.Team Veterans Pest Control – Myrtle Beach termite control is one of the authority sites on this topic.

How termite control is carried out. First, a trained termite expert will conduct an extensive inspection of the interior and exterior of your house, looking for possible access points and signs of termite activity. Depending on initial findings, we will then customize a specific termite protection plan and treatment to protect your house from future termites. There are a number of ways to carry out our termite control efforts such as using baits, insecticides, and physical obstructions.

Baiting systems – Liquid termite treatments include bait and aerial applications. Using baits involves placing special baits consisting of chemicals beneath the ground where termites can access them. The chemicals will kill termites eating the bait within a few weeks. Aerial applications involve applying insecticides directly on structures, usually in the top soil near foundation walls. In the last resort, physical obstructions such as wood, concrete, or sheet rocks are installed to prevent termites from entering the structure.
