Termite Control in Southwest Florida

Every year, termites cause more property damage in the U.S. than floods, fires, hurricanes, and earthquakes – combined! As a homeowner, it’s important to have the right protection against these destructive insects. With our professional termite treatments, you’ll be protected from infestations by the use of the latest termite baiting technology. With over 40 years of experience in the industry, we’re proud to offer you the best and most effective termite control possible.

How Does Our Termite Control Work?

Often times, termite colonies stay hidden inside walls and flooring. This stops you from even noticing an infestation is occurring. Termites can create a lot of damage, fast. The quicker you contact a professional, the quicker you’ll avoid thousands of dollar in damage! Here’s what our termite exterminators in Southwest Florida will do for you:

  • A Certified Sentricon Specialist will provide a free inspection* of your property. We will then determine the extent of your infestation and evaluate the damages.
  • Once we identify what type of termite we’re dealing with, we will create your customized termite treatment plan. We will eradicate your termite infestation with safe and eco-friendly methods!
  • After eliminating any and all termites, you’ll be left to enjoy a termite-free home!

Effective Termite Treatments You Can Count On

When performing a termite inspection, we first determine what kind of termites are infesting your home – that way we know what methods to use to control them. Here in Florida, we typically see subterranean termites and drywood termites. When we identify Subterranean termites, our exterminators utilize our Sentricon baiting technology to eliminate them. When identifying drywood termites, we turn to spot treatments and structural fumigation.  We use different treatment methods for different termites because they infest homes in different ways. Subterranean termites will nest below ground and require contact with soil and plenty of moisture. Drywood termites will nest above ground and often invade your walls and roof. When either pest invades, we have a solution for you!

Top-Notch Technology For Your Home

You might be asking what kind of technology we use to protect your home. How will you know if it is effective? We currently utilize Sentricon Colony Elimination System® with Always Active™ baiting technology. Sentricon is effective in eliminating termite colonies by over 30 different universities and scientific publications. It’s even trusted by the White House! With this effective, environment-friendly technology you’ll be termite-free – for good. Not only does the Sentricon System provide you with 24/7 protection, but it also destroys entire colonies.

Additionally, structural fumigation, also known as “tenting”, is a proven way of eradicating drywood termites, powderpost beetles, and even bed bugs from your home! Depending on the extent of the infestation, tenting can sometimes be avoided with liquid spot treatments, but the only way to ensure that no termite is left behind is to fumigate your home. Act fast with our termite treatments and experience life, termite-free!

Are they Subterranean or Drywood Termites?

Understanding the differences between subterranean and drywood termites is the only way to identify and control them. Winged subterranean termites have darker bodies than their drywood counterparts, but since homeowners rarely get the chance to see termites, we'll focus on other features that can help identify them.

Subterranean Termites

Image
  • Swarming Season: Usually springtime, during daylight
  • Indicators: Mud tubes used to travel through exposed terrain (ie. outside on concrete walls, within crawl spaces connecting ground and floor beams)
  • Nests: Located below ground and require contact with soil and plenty of moisture
  • Control method: Baiting with the Sentricon® System with AlwaysActive™️ Technology

Drywood Termites

Image
  • Swarming season: Usually summertime, during the night
  • Indicators: Frass (termite droppings) look tiny wood colored pellets that are left in piles outside their wood tunnels
  • Nests: Located above ground, often in the attic
  • Control method: Spot treatments and Structural Fumigation

Are they Flying Ants or Termites?

Reproductive ants and termites both have wings to fly out in to the world and produce new colonies, so they are often mistaken for one another. Here are some clues to help identify them, but if you find anything that resembles a winged termite or flying ant inside your home, we highly recommend scheduling a free evaluation of your property.
