Termites are useful in our environment, but when they invade our homes, they may become a nuisance, a source of anxiety and heartache. Every problem we face has a solution, so if termites attack our home, there is a solution we can turn to.


Termite control involves identifying the species, finding the nest and choosing the best eradication techniques. A combination of conducting regular and efficient building inspections in areas that are termite prone, using treated or naturally resistant timbers in buildings and physical soil and chemical barriers around buildings is crucial to prevent more problems. 


Houses nearby may frequently have termite nests close by, stumps and underground but these may not have pests. When they do, it should be the primary focus of the termite control efforts and treat these places before implementing any protection. Many times, the technician will advise the anxious homeowner that termites may be near the property and it is not possible to pinpoint their source. If you do not make any effort to find the origin of the problem, your chances of controlling the problem will reduce. Even if the home is surrounded by a bushland that is dense, it would be worth the money and time to test drill and test all the trees and stumps that surround your home within a 50-100 meter radius because that is where most termite infestations come from. If it means drilling 50 to 60 trees or investigating the surrounding homes, it is better than ignoring the source of the possible infestation.


Many of the pest control companies do not make this extra effort and will try to convince you that the soil barrier system or the bailing technique will protect your property at all times. Do not believe them. If a pest control conducts better investigations and pest control treatments, it will find the origin of the attack.


Termite identification is highly technical, and pest control companies should thoroughly inspect all the areas around your property before that begin any  treatment or protection. 


A home inspection is necessary as the Port St Lucie pest control tries to find out the best way to deal with the termite problem. It involves inspecting the roof void interior and exterior, the sub floor and other areas of the property. The inspection may take anywhere from one to two hours to complete. The cost varies depending on the ease of access and the size of the property, and it also includes the tax. The report following the inspection will detail the areas of concern and what to do to rectify the issues. The pest control company can provide digital photos if you need them.
