The best time of year to treat your home or business for termites is winter because termite activity is pretty predictable during the winter. However, that does not mean you should wait until winter if you discover an infestation in another season. The sooner you treat your termite infestation, the better.
In fact, addressing a possible termite issue before termites have damaged the structure of your property is critical. Preventing termites from damaging your home is preferable to treating termites after you suspect you might have a termite issue. As most homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover termite damage, termite damage can be expensive to repair and can lower the value of your home.
To prevent termite infestations, you should have your property inspected for termites annually. In South Florida, professional pest control companies offer annual termite prevention programs that protect your home year-round, which is a good selling point for your property if you decide to sell. Termites don’t rest, so don’t wait to contact a pest control professional such as Petri Pest Control Services for a free termite inspection.
Termite Treatment Options
- Eastern Subterranean Termites, Formosan & Asian Subterranean Termites
At Petri Pest Control Services, we offer the Sentricon® Colony Elimination System with Always Active™ technology to eliminate subterranean termites, including Eastern subterranean termites and invasive species such as Formosan and Asian subterranean termites, permanently. Our trained technicians are certified Sentricon Specialists™ licensed and authorized to install the Sentricon systems outside homes and businesses throughout South Florida. Bait stations, placed in the ground around structures, where they are most likely to attract termites, start to work immediately. Termites take the bait back to their colonies where the active ingredient in the bait, noviflumuron, prevents termites from molting. When termites are unable to molt, they die.
- Drywood Termites
Drywood termites live inside the wood they infest and do not require contact with the soil or a water source to survive. Most drywood termites can be successfully treated with a no tent solution using direct treatments into termite galleries. But, depending on the extent and location of the infested areas on your property, tent fumigation may be recommended. This will be determined after your termite inspection. Your home should be inspected annually for drywood termites.
