    Do You Need Termite Control?

    Do you have termites? If so, you can attempt to treat the problem on your own. However, it’s best to call in an expert. At Arete Pest Control, we have years of experience exterminating termites. Our technicians are trained and certified, and we use the most current and efficient termite control products.

    When you purchase a termite control plan from Arete, we will inspect your property and create the best possible treatment plan. We use wood treatment, soil treatment and bait treatment for termites. Often, we use a combination of these three types of treatment on a property. When we use wood treatment, we apply our termite product directly to the wood of your home. This product kills existing termites and helps protect the wood against future infestations. When we use soil treatments, we dig small trenches around your property and apply our treatment to the soil. When we use bait stations, we place the bait strategically around your yard. The termites take the bait back to their colony, and the bait destroys the colony.

    How to Detect Termites?

    Termites can be sneaky. They can attack your home and remain undetected for months or even years. However, if you know what to look for, you can often detect termites early and save yourself money by eliminating them early. When termites attack the wood of a home, they eat the wood from the inside out. A wall that is termite-infested may sound hollow when you tap on it. You can also detect termite activity by listening to your walls. Termites often make rattling, clicking, rustling or buzzing sounds as they eat wood and travel through wood. Some homeowners notice bubbling paint, discolored wallpaper or peeling wallpaper, which are all signs of termite activity.

    You will often know you have termites if you see piles of shed wings around your property. Swarms of flying termites are also signs of an infestation, especially if you see them indoors. If your wood or furniture has been attacked by termites, you may see maze-like tunnels in the wood. Termites will sometimes leave behind their droppings, which look like small piles of wood dust or wood shavings.

    You should also inspect your yard for signs of termites. If you see termites inside wood stumps or other trees near your home, then you may be at risk of termites attacking your home. If you have wood fences or a wooden porch or deck, inspect it for maze-like grooves in the wood. Those grooves could indicate a termite infestation.
