Signs of Termite Infestations

There are many different warning signs and signals of an infestation. While some signs are easy to see, others may be harder to find. Some of these warning signs include:


Termite Treatments

First, only professionals can apply termite control treatment. Many pest control treatments can be harmful to humans, pets, wildlife, and the ecosystem and require professional care. For example, when certain products are mixed improperly, applied too heavily, or the product is placed incorrectly, it will harm your home. Our team of experts at A-1 understands which products to use, where, and how much to apply.

A-1 Bonded Termite stays in contact with you and examines your property routinely until the termites are officially gone. Also, A-1 ensures that stairs and banisters are safe and secured once the pests are removed. Additionally, our team verifies that any major damage that the termite problem may have caused is carefully examined to prevent accidents from rotten/eaten wood. If applicable, we also make sure cracks in the foundation are properly sealed.


Treatment Types

While A-1 offers customized treatments to fit your needs, our team will recommend a treatment based on the type, severity, and location of the infestation.

  • Local treatment includes both drywood and subterranean termite infestations.
  • Barrier treatments protect wood surfaces in garages, attic spaces, and sub-areas. This protective barrier kills termites as they attempt to penetrate treated wood surfaces.
  • Structural fumigation is typically recommended when you have a large termite infestation and/or the infestation has progressed into inaccessible areas of your home.

-Seal any cracks in your foundation.  This tip applies to all pests!  Mice can sneak into a home through a hole the size of a dime. On the other hand, ants and termites, 1/64th of an inch are all they need!

-Prevent cracks from forming. Something as simple as a leak from a garden hose can erode your foundation slightly. As a result, this may cause the smallest gap for termites or other pests to sneak through. Make sure that seals are tight and the gutter properly drains away from your foundation.

– Elevate outdoor wood and keep it away from your home. This will minimize the chance of termites entering the wood of your home.
