How to Get Rid of Termites: 2 Treatment Options

Small in size, big in damage. Meet the termite. Living in wood and soil, these pests can cause thousands of dollars in damage before ever being detected. Even with more than 2,000 species of termites in the U.S., you’ll likely spot signs of their presence before you spot one of them. Listen here to find out why “you have termites” is something you never want to hear.

Termite Treatment Options

That’s why homeowners who are eager to learn how to get rid of termites call Western Pest Services for their Targeted Defense® termite treatment. After a thorough inspection, we’ll work with you to choose the best termite treatment program for your home. Together, we’ll select one of the two methods developed by our experts:

1. Triple Line of Defense® Liquid Termite Barrier

This termite solution starts when your technician applies our Triple Line of Defense liquid treatment barrier around your home, guaranteeing you 100% control in less than 120 days.

To ensure the treated zone is working properly, we install Termi-Teller™ Monitors, which your technician will inspect to evaluate the termite treatment process and make adjustments as necessary. We’ll also provide a thorough interior inspection to give you added peace of mind.

2. Baiting System

When taking a baiting approach, we use eco-friendly Sentricon® bait stations. Your technician places each station strategically around your home’s perimeter to lure termites from your home to the bait located inside. Foraging individuals will feed on the bait and will bring the active materials back to the colony to eliminate all individuals. As termite colonies begin feeding on the bait, their numbers drastically decline.

Once the existing termite colony is removed, your technician will continue monitoring the stations on a regular basis to help prevent further colonies from forming.

For homes that already show signs of termites or termite damage, we take this method a step further. In addition to the Sentricon® bait stations, we apply a targeted treatment using a quick-acting product to take care of those already causing damage.

Of course, there are proactive measures you can take to help prevent the need for termite treatment, whether it’s using mulch correctly or regularly inspecting your home for termite damage. At the first sign of termites, be sure to call your pest management provider as soon as possible. A fast response can end up saving you time and money.
