Termite Treatment: Termidor
Are you under the impression that termite treatment types are all the same? Well they aren’t. In fact there is a huge difference in how effectively some termite treatments control termite colonies and how long they last. that’s why at Savannah Termite and Pest Control we are extremely proud to be a Termidor partner.
Termidor is a liquid termite treatment with an active ingredient known as fipronil. Unlike most liquid termite treatments fipronil is a non repellent transferable material. Non-repellent means that termites don’t avoid it which is a fatal mistake for the termite. Transferable means that each termite carries the fipronil back to the colony where it is exponentially transferred to the other termites in the colony which then destroys the colony strip.
Fipronil can kill termite colonies in as little as 90 days and it can last for more than 10 years. Now at this point you may be thinking if Termidor is so good doesn’t it cost more? Yes in fact it does, Termidor can cost twice as much as a lesser termite treatments. But at Savannah Termite and Pest Control we absorb that extra cost and give you a Termidor termite treatment for the same price you would pay for a lesser treatment. It’s just one more way that we deliver value to our customers.
Termite Treatment and Protection
While getting termites out of the home is an important step, it is also equally important to protect your home from any future termite infestation. Since termites can cause a great deal of damage to a home if left unchecked, it is almost always the cheaper and easier option to protect your home initially from termites rather than deal with an active infestation and damage repairs.
It is important to note that, due to the range of severity of each infestation, it can be difficult to determine how long a treatment process will take. While that may be disheartening for homeowners to hear, it is always better to deal with a termite infestation thoroughly rather than quickly. If even a small population of termites survives the treatment they might reemerge as a problem in the future. That being said, we here at Savannah Termite and Pest Control always strive to solve your pest problems as quickly as possible while remaining diligent and thorough in our treatment.
Types of Termites
Subterranean termite species are the more common category that homeowners in Georgia face, and they typically attack homes from below using underground nests and tunnels. Subterranean termites require moisture to survive, and for this reason must return to the soil periodically. While certain invasive species, such as Formosan termites, have alternative ways of gaining moisture outside the soil, this rule holds true for all native subterranean species. Termites most often attack areas of the home that are out of sight. Usually eating away floorboards from below or the insides of walls. For this reason, homeowners should be careful in assuming that they are termite free simply because no visible damage exists. An active infestation could exist in your home without any obvious signs appearing for months.
Since Subterranean termites tend to attack from the soil upwards, most treatment options are focused on creating a barrier in the soil that keeps the termites from accessing the home in the first place. There are a variety of treatment methods that exist to deal with termites, and the truth is that each of these methods has their pros and cons. Professional expertise is often required to determine which is the best option for your home. In some cases, treatment methods may be combined to provide adequate treatment for your home.
Unlike Subterranean termites, Drywood termites can live in the furniture or the walls of the main. As the name suggests, they require almost no moisture to survive, and take the moisture that they need from the air. They have been commonly found in wooden furniture and trim such as baseboards, picture frames, balusters, and attic space. As you can imagine, an inspector would have to be quite skilled to identify signs of these termites. Even though the colonies tend to be very small, they can cause significant damage to your home.
