Termite control is a common service provided by Eastside pest control. These tiny insects feed on cellulose, a material commonly found in wood, paper and construction materials, which can result in significant harm to buildings and structures if left unchecked. Detection of termites can often be challenging until noticeable damage has taken place.
Eastside Pest control utilize a range of techniques to regulate termite populations, including baiting systems, liquid treatments, and fumigation. With baiting systems, small stations filled with cellulose-based material are placed around the property perimeter, attracting and killing termites after they ingest the bait. Liquid treatments involve injecting a chemical solution into the soil surrounding the building foundation, creating a barrier that termites cannot penetrate. Fumigation, a more extensive approach, involves sealing the entire building in a tent and releasing a gas that eliminates termites.
It’s important to note that termite control is not a one-time treatment, it is an ongoing process. Even after an infestation has been eradicated, regular inspections and treatments may be necessary to ensure that termites do not return. Pest control companies typically offer ongoing maintenance plans to help prevent future infestations. Additionally, homeowners can take steps to reduce the risk of termite infestations, such as reducing moisture in the home, eliminating wood-to-soil contact, and keeping gutters and downspouts clear of debris.
