It’s winter and the last thing on your mind is probably termites, but don’t let the cold temps fool you, because some termite species—including subterranean termites—can and do remain active year-round. You won’t see these guys hard at work eating away at wood 24 hours a day, seven days a week, but they are. They are working hard to get the termite swarmers ready to emerge from their nests after the last freeze when the temperatures hit about 70 degrees. That’s why it’s important when making termite control decisions to hire a professional with extensive knowledge of building construction and an understanding of potential entry points that are hidden and difficult to access to protect your home or business.
All termite control is not created equal. Hiring an expert, like Terminator Termite and Pest Control is critical to protecting your investment. Termite control requires special knowledge as well as specialized equipment and the application of large amounts of termiticide. A typical termite job requires around +/-200 gallons of termiticide solution injected into the soil, beneath concrete slabs and within foundation walls. As you can see, you want someone that is competent for the job. Terminator is trained in all areas of termite control as well as licensed and bonded in Arkansas and Oklahoma.
As a homeowner, you can participate in reducing your home’s risk of infestation by:
- Redirecting water away from the foundation.
- Moving wood and other cellulose materials (including mulch) away from the foundation.
- Exposing the foundation around the entire house.
- Keeping the basement or crawl space dry.
