Expert Subterranean Termite Exterminators
For homeowners who are worried about termite invasions, don’t fret. Although they can cause significant damage to property, there have never been so many ways of exterminating subterranean termites as there are today. Termites have always been an enormous problem throughout all of America, but due to our knowledge of them increasing and more treatments becoming available, these termites can be eradicated from homes with far more ease.
At Bob Jenkins Pest & Lawn Services, we provide our customers with the best pest control service in San Antonio. We’ve had years of experience when it comes to using different techniques to exterminate subterranean termites, so we know which treatments work the most efficiently.
Preventing Termites in Your Home
Taking preventative action is the key to not getting termites in your home. When our clients ask for subterranean termite advice, we provide them with a range of different ways in which they can prevent termite invasions. Moist wood attracts these types of termites, so we tell our customers to modify areas of their property that termites could turn into their habitat:
- Keep your home’s gutters clean
- Get any plumbing or structural leaks repaired
- When building decking or porches, avoid having wood to ground contact
- Keep any firewood stacked away from your property
- Don’t leave any piles of debris or trash around your yard
- If you have any dead tree stumps, remove them from your yard
- Make sure your downspout directs any water away from the foundations of your home
- Keep all landscaping and mulch at least six inches away from your properties foundations
If you would like more information on any of the above preventative measures, please be sure to contact one of our representatives. We are more than happy to provide you with advice that will help keep these pests away from your home.
Treating Subterranean Termites
Here at Bob Jenkins Pest & Lawn Services, we offer our customers a variation of termite treatments. Unfortunately, prevention doesn’t always keep termites away from invading your property. When subterranean termites infest your home, immediate action must be carried out. Get in touch with us as soon as possible, so we can treat your home and eliminate the pests.
With a liquid termiticide treatment we apply it around and under the entire structure of your home – all areas where subterranean termites may find access, we treat with liquid termiticide. Depending on the age of your property, we carry out this treatment in two separate ways.
The goal with using liquid termiticide is to create a chemical barrier between your home and the termites in the soil. If any of these pests are already on your property, the treatment will prevent them from getting back to the ground, and they’ll soon die of dehydration.
Advantage to liquid termiticides:
- When applied, your property benefits from immediate protection
- It’s cost effective and efficient compared to some baiting techniques
- The treatment can last for multiple years
- Termites cannot find gaps with this treatment
When we use this type of termiticide, it doesn’t repel the subterranean termites; they can’t detect the chemicals in the soil. Instead, the termites will forage into the termiticide and have contact with the chemical, so they ultimately die.
