Termites are more than just a nuisance, they’re a threat to your home! Each year, over 2,000,000 U.S. homes will be treated for termites, many of them in the Carolinas. In fact, the federal government has designated North Carolina as an “area of moderate to heavy termite infestation. ”The cost of repairing termite damage can run into the tens of thousands of dollars if not treated correctly and in a timely manner. Thomas Pest Control is your termite expert.
Options for Termite Control
We offer an array of termite treatment solutions in Charlotte, all designed for efficiency and affordability. Our method is to actually create an invisible barrier between termites and your home, blocking their access. Whether you’re building a new home or shoring up an old one, we’ve got you covered.
Liquid Termite Control
Liquid termite treatment is perhaps the most popular. It’s easy to apply and works by being applied directly to the soil both inside and outside the foundation walls of your home. It forms a continuous chemical barrier that will prevent foraging termites from reaching the wood in your house.
We use the latest technology to treat the pests while disrupting your home as little as possible. Watch this video to learn more about the Termidor HP Injector System:
Termite Baiting Systems
Termite baits are a cost-effective solution to a potential infestation. As termites feed on bait and travel back to the colony, they share the bait with their nestmates and send others back to feed on the bait. As feeding continues, more and more termites are affected, and the termite colony starts to die and is eventually eliminated. This works to kill the colony at the source to stop termites from finding their way into your home.
Borate Wood Treatments
At Thomas Pest Control, we work frequently with builders looking to protect new homes from the threat of termites. Applications of Bora-Care Termiticide are applied directly to the wood framing of a structure, preventing termites from consuming the wood or tubing over treated wood to reach untreated wood. Bora Care simply eliminates treated wood as a food source for termites. Various studies and over 16 years of treatments have proven Bora-Care’s ability to effectively prevent termites.
Termites in the Carolinas
Along the East Coast and particularly in the Carolinas, eastern subterranean termites pose a significant threat to homeowners. Living underground in basements and crawlspaces, these pests are difficult to detect until they’ve caused significant damage to a structure.
Signs of a termite infestation include discarded wings as well as visible damage to wood! The bugs also build mud tubes to travel “undetected” through your home, but prefer to stay out of site by nesting under patios, in crawlspaces, or behind the walls.
It’s critical if you see or suspect a termite infestation in your home that you don’t disturb the colony. The only way to effectively eradicate a termite problem is to bring in a professional termite treatment company for continued, monitored treatment.
