What is the best way to prevent termites?
Homeowners sometimes install a number of poisoned bait stations around the perimeter of their home’s foundation. Typically, these poisoned bait stations are tubes that contain a poison-laced wooden stick that attracts termites but has the potency to kill entire termite colonies before they attack your house. If you have not had poison bait sticks installed around the perimeter of your house, or if it has been years since your poisoned bait sticks were last maintained, contact us today to get them installed or replaced for maximum protection!

What is the best way to exterminate a termite infestation?
While some homeowners like to attempt DIY fixes for termite problems, we advise against it for multiple reasons. First, termite infestations need to be backtraced all the way to the colony, and the “spot treatment” home remedies for termite problems shown on many DIY websites are simply inadequate.
Additionally, the entire colony needs to be exterminated, and the process for achieving best results in these exterminations requires correct identification of the termite species and the proper selection, mixing, and application of the most suitable pesticide. We always recommend hiring a licensed and experienced pest controller to do this work, to save you time and frustration.
