Termite Treatment For Protection of Your Home

Termite Inspection Woodstock GATermites are very prevalent in Georgia. Many people are aware that they should have their homes inspected for termites on a periodic basis, but not everyone is aware of the need for ongoing protection.

Many homeowners may only be aware of termites being in their home when they witness a termite swarm.

In Georgia or other parts of the Southeast, you should be on the lookout for signs of termite swarms. These visible signs of termites occur in the early spring after the last freeze and as temperatures begin to consistently be in the low to mid 70’s. There are steps you can take to help prevent and control infestations before swarming takes place.

Protect All Pest Control offers three different termite treatment plans based around the concept of bait stations and liquid treatments.

Our most basic package is using exclusively bait stations installed around your home. These bait stations are placed into the ground per the manufacturer’s specifications, usually about 20 feet apart. One of our trained pest control professionals will then visit your home quarterly to check the stations for any termite activity. If there is activity found in any of the stations, the technician will then place active chemical into that particular bait station to kill termites.

The next step up in termite control is liquid treatment where a small, narrow trench is dug all the way around your home. A liquid termiticide is then applied to this trench.

The last type of treatment available is the liquid / bait combo treatment. The liquid bait combo is just what it sounds like, a combination of the above two treatments. This is the type of treatment that we prefer and recommend.

The level of protection desired is yours to make, but no matter what, you should be protecting what is probably your largest investment from potential damage by termites.
