Our termite control methods vary depending on the type of termite involved.
If you suspect you may have termites in your home, it’s imperative that you call us at Canady’s Termite & Pest Control for termite control before they can undermine the structural integrity of your Fayetteville, North Carolina home.
Our termite control methods vary depending on the type of termite involved. Drywood termites and subterranean termites don’t respond to the same treatment. With drywood termites, we can take remedial action to target the termites themselves. However, subterranean termites are resolved with slow-acting toxic baits that attract them more effectively than your home does, keeping them at bay and also waging war against the colony. In addition, the application of a liquid termiticide around your home acts as a barrier. The ultimate goal with termite control is to resolve and prevent termite infestations and deal with the three classes of termites: workers, alates (swarmers), and soldiers which all begin as nymphs.
Any home can be susceptible to either type of termites, and even both in some cases, since each type has its own wood preference. Drywood termites, as their name indicates, prefer dry wood and dry climates, whereas subterranean termites prefer soft, supple wood. The first step in termite control is determining whether termites are present and what kind they are. We can then take appropriate measures to remove them and then set up a prevention protocol to reduce the chance of their return. We are confident about our termite control methods and back them with a 10-year warranty. If you would like to know more, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
FAQs About Termite Control
Of all the pest control services, the most critical in terms of protecting your Fayetteville, North Carolina home is termite control. At Canady’s Termite & Pest Control, we recommend that every home have a termite control plan in place. We are happy to address your questions so you better understand why it is so important. Here are a few common questions about termite control:
Do I need termite control if my home is concrete block construction?
How long would it take for termites to cause structural damage?
Less time than you might think! Termites munch away 24 hours a day. An average termite colony can go through two feet of a 2×4 in less than a year. If they happen to choose a support beam, the result can be devastating.
How long have termites been around?
Fossil termites have been found dating back to about 130,000,000 years ago. Given that termites exist in countries all over the world, they aren’t going away any time soon, but with our termite control, at least you won’t have to worry about having them in your home. An interesting fact is that termites are believed to be related to roaches, another pest we can eliminate from your home.
Is my home safe after termite season ends?
No, termites are a potential problem during swarm season and beyond. Subterranean termites come from underground rather than swarming. Since an average lot can have several active termite colonies, you need termite control to keep them away from your home.
