Termite Control Treatment for Drywood Termites
Our termite control experts provide multiple corrective recommendations for drywood termite infestations. These termite control treatments include:
Localized Termite Treatments
Local treatments for termite control are specified locations that are determined to have a drywood termite infestation. Local termite control treatments, also known as spot treatments, include wood injection or topical application of termite control treatments for drywood termite extermination. Additionally, localized spot treatments of targeted areas affected by drywood termites can eliminate your drywood termite infestation completely.
Termite Heat Treatment
Heat treatment is a primary treatment for drywood termite infestation. Heat treatment for termite control means termite extermination without the need for chemicals. Termite heat treatment is a whole area treatment that eliminates termites that you can see and those that you cannot see.
As a termite company, we perform heat treatment for commercial termite control and home termite control to treat areas by performing area-specific treatment. We heat up the interior of the wood with specialized equipment that raises the interior temperature to about 135 degrees and hold it there for one hour. This treatment is a green termite control that is so safe for your home that you do not even have to leave while we are performing the heat treatment.
Tent fumigation for termites is one the only options for whole house termite control treatment. Tent fumigation is a highly effective form of termite extermination, administered professionally by a termite control specialist.
The termite fumigation process involves tenting the area and administering an odorless, non-residual gas. The gas used for termite tent fumigation does not cling on furniture, carpets, walls, bedding, or any other part of your home.
Baiting for Termites
Typically, termite extermination by way of baiting is done in attics, sub-areas like basements, and in the areas around the perimeter of the home.
