Termites in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Termites Fort Lauderdale: Pest Control for Termites Lauderdale
Termites may be small, but they are a big threat to your Lauderdale home. There are a few things you can do to ensure your home is free of termites, like an inspection, but a mere inspection is not prevention. We understand how dangerous these insects can be to the overall structure of your home, and we know how easily they can invade a home. This is the reason that we, at Price Termite & Pest control, have dedicated ourselves to protecting homes. Our experts have seen the damage these perverse insects can do, from floorboard cavities to holes behind the walls. In fact, some of these holes can be big enough to let large creatures into your home. This is why it is imperative that you give us a call at (954) 984-4222 when you notice a possible problem.
What Do Termites Look Like?
There are a few types of termites that Lauderdale residents have to deal with, but they all look relatively similar. It is estimated that about one in five homes in high termite activity regions will get (or have been) attacked. This means there is a chance that your home could be compromised without you even knowing. You need to be on the lookout at all times. Termites are usually about one inch long and have a somewhat dark brown exterior. Dampwood termites (one of the species in Florida) usually stay in humid regions. These particular termites have a light brown exterior and a dark brown head. Another type of termite to worry about is the subterranean termite, which has an off-white body with dark brown strokes around the head.
Tenting vs. Chemical Treatments
There are two common solutions to get rid of termites. One is using a tent, and the other is applying a chemical treatment to a home. Chemical treatments, sometimes referred to as spot treatments, are procedures where the exterminator places chemicals directly on the problem areas in your home. Our professionals can combine two separate substances: one designed to kill termites on contact and the other to repel them to keep your home safe.
Tenting, on the other hand, is for more serious infestations. The purpose of tenting is to treat the entire home with these substances. You will need to find another place to stay during this particular procedure.
