Termites cause over 2 billion dollars in damage each year that is not covered by homeowners insurance. Termites live in the ground and feed off of wood products, cellulose based and moisture in the soil. Termites are continuously foraging 24 hours a day. It doesn’t matter where you live, your home or business is a target for termites.
Termites attack the structure of your home or business from inside the wood. You may not discover you have termites until something gives way. A colony may be made up of several hundred or thousands of termites that will live up to 15 years. On average there are 20 to 40 termite colonies per acre. Termites infest buildings and damage lumber, wood panels, flooring, sheet rock, wall paper, plastics paper products and fabric made of plant fibers. The most serious damage is the loss of structural integrity. Termites could destroy a home within 2 – 3 years.
Hiring a professional pest control and termite company is recommended, especially if you notice termites around your home or business.

These Professional Termite Treatment Options
- Conventional Liquid Barrier Treatment – A chemical barrier around and beneath the structure is applied in order to block all possible routes of termite entry. Any termites attempting to penetrate through the treated soil are either killed or repelled. Although over time, this chemical barrier breaks down by natural elements. A re-treatment is necessary every 3-5 years.
- Halo Termite Detection System – Halo electronic termite detection stations- Halo system gives you visual proof by detecting active termites around your property. While it does not attract termites, it signals when termites are present in Halo monitoring stations placed around your property. It’s a pesticide-free way to help determine if there is termite activity.
