TERMITE CONTROL

Termites can cause significant structural damage to homes and businesses, with a single colony consuming up to a pound (half a kilo) of wood each day. As social insects that establish large colonies fairly quickly, both the male and female termite feed on wood and continually work to build a nest for their eggs. The presence of termites, particularly in the spring, often indicates that a colony is well established in the near vicinity. Termites prefer decaying wood and despite causing significant damage, they often leave a physical effect that at first appears to render wood as smooth and clean. Jersey Pest & Animal Control pest control experts are experienced at identifying and ridding any home or business of the threat of termites and protecting your property from the significant harm caused by a termite infestation.

Extensive and Expensive Termite Damage

Termites are able to adapt to ever-changing environments and can wreak more havoc than a series of natural disasters combined including hurricanes and hailstorms. Damage due to termites is estimated to be more than $1 billion annually in the US alone. Most insurance companies will not provide coverage for personal loss incurred from the ravages of a termite colony.

How to Get Rid of Termites

Following an inspection of all entry points and any areas where dry wood may be present, Jersey Pest & Animal Control formulates a planned approach that may involves chemical applications to act as a barrier between the termite colony and the wood of your building or structure. Soil trenching in and around the foundation combined with specialized injections - requiring equally specialized equipment - are among the successful pest control methods we customize precisely for properties with termite infestations.

Quick Tips for Preventing a Termite Infestation:

  • Avoid letting moisture accumulate near the foundation of your property Address excess humidity problems in crawl space areas
  • Do not store firewood and other wood products near the foundation of your home
  • Contact a pest control expert immediately if you suspect termites have established a colony on your property
