What Do Termites Look Like?
Chances are, at this very moment you may be living unaware with termites on your property. The many types that Boca Raton homeowners battle resemble one another in many ways. These pests are usually around one-inch long and have a deep brown exterior. Dampwood termites, which thrive in moist climates around the country such as Florida, are recognizable by their dark brown heads and brownish, almost amber colored bodies. Subterranean termites display off-white exoskeletons accented with dark brown on their backs and heads.
Tenting vs. Chemical Treatments
Two common remedies for destroying termites are chemical treatments (also known as spot treatments) and tenting. To conduct a chemical treatment, one of our exterminators applies a low-pressure spray around your house’s foundation and inside your walls. We may use different substances to perform two different functions: a termiticide designed to kill the insects on contact, and a repellent to make your home less attractive to new termite colonies. If you have a serious infestation, or the first two methods prove ineffective, tenting the building is the next option. With tenting, we can treat every inch of the house. This is an intensive process, so for your safety and comfort, you’ll need to stay elsewhere for a short time.
