Subterranean Termite Control for Residents of Temecula, Fallbrook, Oceanside, and the Surrounding Areas
Subterranean termites are a common type of termite found in Southern California. They are often mistaken for ants if you don’t know what to look for. If left unchecked, they can do substantial damage to the wood structures in a building. You might have Subterranean termites if you notice any of the following signs:
1. Mud tubes, or small mud tunnels, that go up from the foundation of your house or building, or that appear on your interior walls
2. Termite swarmers, which resemble flying ants and are typically spotted during the spring season
By the time you see subterranean termites inside your house, chances are, you already have an established termite infestation and should call a professional termite company like Knockout immediately.
Termite Home Inspection
If you think you might have termites, we highly recommend contacting a termite inspector to perform an inspection either of the entire house or of the area of concern.
A specialized termite inspector from Knockout Pest Control & Termite Control will come to your property to conduct a comprehensive termite inspection. The resulting termite inspection report details the findings from the termite inspection, including locations of Subterranean termite activity and associated termite damage. After identifying the source of the termites and the extent of the Subterranean termite activity, the report recommends termite control treatments and outlines any needed wood repairs.
Termite Control Treatment for Subterranean Termites
Knockout Pest Control’s termite experts have several different treatment options at their disposal for Subterranean termites. They will recommend the one that will be the most effective for your specific termite problem. Termite control treatments for Subterranean termites include:
Localized Termite Treatments
Local treatments for Subterranean termite control are specified for the individual locations shown to have a Subterranean termite infestation.
Complete Treatment: Perimeter Treatment
This type of termite extermination is done by digging a trench or drilling holes through concrete around the perimeter of your home or office building and applying repellent chemicals into the soil where Subterranean termites originate.
We are a Termidor registered partner, and we proudly use Termidor for Subterranean termite treatments. We do full treatments and local termite treatments using Termidor, which is the number-one product on the market. This type of termite treatment creates a barrier that remains over time. It has a transfer effect from one Subterranean termite to the other. Once the termite control chemical is encountered by a single Subterranean termite, it can transfer for up to ten cycles. It has a compounding effect that leads to total termite eradication and the best termite protection.
