Every year, American homes incur over $5 billion in property damage resulting from termite infestations. The sad part about these losses is that very few homeowners’ insurers cover them. This is on a national scale. When it comes to you as an individual homeowner, similar damages could amount to about $8,000 annually.
The irony of termite attacks is that the insects serve a very worthy purpose naturally, in that they help in the disintegration of dead trees and vegetation through digestion of their cellulose. This is fine until the attacks target your home-then it’s time for you to take action. At Emergency Pest Control, we don’t want you to suffer from termites wreaking havoc in your home.
Common Termites’ Entry Points
Since termites are very small creatures, they only require about 1/32 of an inch to gain access to a building. Some of the common channels of termite entry include cracks in the building’s foundation and around the plumbing, and through expansion joints. They will also squeeze up foundation walls and travel through hollow block walls.
Termite Infestation Warning Signs
There are some warning signs for termite infestations you should watch out for and contact us as soon as they appear. Cracked or bubbling paint on your walls may indicate presence of termite droppings. If you tap wood and it sounds hollow, it’s likely the inside has been eaten away by termites.
Mud tubes present on wooden beams, crawl spaces, or on exterior walls may also indicate presence of termite homes. Discarded swarmer wings, and a temporary swarm of winged insects present in the soil surrounding your home, or inside your house is a strong sign of termites’ presence.
State-of-the-art Termite Control
At Emergency Pest Control, we don’t just want to come in when the damage is done. We have a strong emphasis on preventive extermination, which aims at early identification and removal of not just the termites, but also other pests that may be identified during the initial home inspection and screening.
Our extermination procedures are thorough and elaborate. We begin by installing monitoring devices (at ground level) in the soil around your home to provide continuous monitoring and protection. In case termites are identified, the devices release pesticides, while taking care not to contaminate the water. This makes them very safe and environmental-friendly.
To achieve superior protection and a fool-proof extermination, we currently rely on the Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination Systems manufactured by Dow. The system has received local and global recognition for its effectiveness, environmental awareness, reliability, and non-invasive protection. Dow has received a Presidential Green Award for developing green, eco-friendly products.
