Protect your home with our termite protection technology.
Do I Have Termites?
Termites are tough. Determined. Highly efficient. And chances are you’ll see no evidence of their work until structural damage has been done. Knowing how to spot termites is the first step in taking action.
The most common kind, subterranean termites, live in colonies in the soil. These colonies can be found just below the surface and down to 4 feet; however may be as deep as 12 feet.
Is it a Termite? Or an Ant?
Maybe your next question is “Who cares?” But it’s important to know, because measures for controlling the two pests vary.
Winged termites are usually only 1/8″ or so in length, have straight antennae and no “waistline.” Their wings are long and of equal length.
Ants are often several times larger. They have elbowed antennae and three distinct body segments with very slim waists. Their front wings are much longer than the back ones. Termites and ants usually break off their wings.

Types of Termites
- Worker Termites: Worker termites “commute” between the colony and sources of food, including wood fibers and other forms of cellulose. They eat, digest and then share the food with other members of their colony. They keep busy 24 hours a day and rarely break through the surface of wood. Instead they hollow it out from the inside. The vast majority of their work is invisible until something gives way.
- Soldier termites: Soldier termites are genetically programmed to protect the colony against outside enemies, especially ants.
- Swarmer Termites: Swarmer termites emerge from the colony all at once. They mate and return to the soil to build new colonies. They are poor fliers and are sometimes seen by the homeowner in or around the home in the spring.

Complete termite protection…
When it comes to termites, place your confidence and trust with the professionals at Western Pest Services.
Many pest control companies offer only a baiting program. But this is where their service ends.
At Western Pest Services, we know it takes more than baiting to eliminate termites for good, which is why we attack termites with two additional levels of defense.
Baiting is just step 1. After we bait, we use the Termi-Teller Monitoring Process® to safeguard the foundation of your home. That is step 2. Then, for extra measure, our well-trained technicians will follow through with thorough home inspections to make sure termites are gone for good…step 3.
- Step 1: Bait Station Monitoring
State-of-the-art termite bait stations, using the latest in termite baiting technology, are placed by Western at strategic intervals around your home focusing on conducive termite conditions. These environmentally-friendly bait devices are contained in in-ground stations and always available to provide targeted control upon termite detection. This bait is more attractive to termites than wood and the stations stand guard around the clock, always active, as the first line of defense to not only resolve a current infestation, but provide long-term structural protection from new termite colonies through regular service visits and inspection by Western.
- Step 2: Termi-Teller® Monitoring process
Areas right next to the foundation of your home are especially susceptible to termite activity. We closely monitor these areas with Western’s Termi-Teller® Monitoring Process. Wooden stakes are set in the soil and are examined periodically for termite damage.
- Step 3: Interior Inspections
Our technicians conduct specialized interior inspections to ensure total protection. After all, the largest monitoring device is the structure itself. At Western, we believe it’s not only important to inspect the baiting system, it’s also important to keep a watchful eye on the very thing we are trying to protect…your home.
With Western Pest Services, you’re guaranteed a total termite solution that combines the skill and knowledge of expert technicians with the most advanced technology on the market.
Advantages of Western’s Advanced Baiting Technology
|Proactive System||The termite bait stations combine the monitor and bait into one durable device within each station providing immediate availability to control termites around the clock, as soon as they are detected.|
|Inconspicuous||Stations are installed outside your home. There’s no drilling through the floor or foundation. Bait stations blend in with shrubs and other landscaping, then are found and serviced through electronic detection.|
|Environmentally-Friendly Pest Control||Unique chemistry ensures only termites, and not the environment, are affected by the bait. Termites tunnel out and send others in the colony back to the stations. The bait is ingested solely in the station, limiting its presence in the environment. There are no liquid chemicals.|
|Continued Monitoring||After termites are eliminated, the termite bait stations continue to be routinely monitored and serviced, allowing Western to keep a watchful eye on your house and property.|
|Durability||The highly durable and dense termite bait devices stand up against rough weather conditions and additional environmental stress. The bait is contained within the stations and does not leach.|
|Continuous Protection||The termite bait stations detect and prevent future infestations, as time goes by.|
