Step 2: Treat and Eliminate Termites

How to kill termites and treat an infestation depends on the location, type and severity of the situation. A-1 Bonded Termite has three typical termite treatment options.

Local treatment is the least invasive method for killing termites and can be used for both drywood and subterranean termite infestations.

Barrier treatments offer a protective barrier on the wood surface that will kill termites as they attempt to penetrate the treated wood. This treatment can be applied to exposed wood timbers in attic spaces, garages and sub-areas when applicable.

Structural fumigation is recommended when a large termite infestation is present or when the termites have progressed into inaccessible areas of the home or structure. Structural fumigation is the only treatment method that eliminates 100% of your termite infestation, guaranteed.

The treatments used to kill termites must be applied by professionals. Many pest control treatments can be harmful to humans, wildlife, pets and the ecosystem and require professional care to ensure safe use. For example, when certain treatment products are mixed incorrectly, applied too heavily, or the product is placed improperly, it will harm your home. The team of experts at A-1 Bonded Termite understand which products to use, where to use them and how much of certain products to apply.

Step 3: Repair Termite Damage & Prevent More Termites

Our team of termite experts not only understands how to kill termites, but also how to repair any termite damage and prevent any future termite infestations.
