Tips to Help Prevent Termites

  • Find and fix water leaks: Termites need moisture to survive, so when you provide them with a good source of it, they’ll thrive. Check under interior sinks and behind the refrigerator and washing machine. You might be surprised to learn that inside air conditioning units can leak, so be sure to check under yours periodically and make sure that the AC drain hose outside doesn’t drip water near your foundation.
  • Eliminate standing water around your home: If water tends to pool near your home during and after rainstorms, consider talking to a plumber about installing a French drain that will absorb the water and guide it off your property. You should also get the help of a roofer to check your roof for low spots where water can pool and to install gutters that will keep water from falling near your foundation.
  • Remove food sources from your yard: Firewood stored next to your house, wood mulch in flowerbeds, dead trees and tree stumps in your yard and overgrown bushes touching the sides of your home are attracting termites to your property. Bushes and other vegetation touching your home are especially bad because they give termites direct access to your home.
  • Seal off access points: Make sure big (and small) gaps around the outside of your home, including around plumbing and electrical access points and around doors and windows, are caulked or otherwise sealed to make access to your home more difficult.
  • Use termite-resistant wood for construction: Termite-resistant woods like redwood, cypress and cedar are good choices for decking, fences and other outdoor structures that come into contact with the ground and your home. You can also use pressure-treated pine, as the chemicals in the wood not only repel termites, they also help the structures to last longer.
  • Make sure your home is properly ventilated: Airflow throughout the structure of your home prevents the buildup of the moisture that termites need to survive; you must ensure that your home, including your attic and any internal voids or crawlspaces, are properly ventilated.
  • Put down a chemical barrier: When you call in a termite pro to check your house for signs of a termite infestation, he can insert chemicals into the ground under and around your foundation that will form a protective barrier that is safe for humans and pests, but deadly to termites.
  • Separate wood from soil: Since termites can chew through wood, if you have any wooden floor boards directly touching the soil then you're leaving yourself susceptible to termites entering your home. Always keep fire wood and wood debris off the ground so termites can't get to it.
  • Dehumidify your foundation and crawl spaces: Any areas that are enclosed and moist and good breeding grounds for termites. If you have any suspicions about your crawl space, call in our Frisco termite inspection team and we'll find out what you have and what you need.
  • Avoid mulch: If you have to use mulch, make sure to keep it separate from any wooden borders to your home. Mulch makes for a good spot for termites because it provides them the insulation and the moisture they need to thrive. Instead consider using rocks or gravel.

Whether you have an active infestation, or if you just want peace of mind that your home is protected, our Frisco termite specialists will handle all wood destroying insect problems. Bug Commander Pest Control offers a variety of termite treatment and prevention services to fit your needs and budget. Our inspectors are state-licensed, highly-trained, and fully-equipped to locate termites in all types of structures. We offer two primary treatment options for termites, both of which have been proven highly effective by years of independent testing.

Our Termite Treatment Programs Include:

  • Option 1: Termidor HE is a state-of-the-art, non-repellent termiticide that achieves complete termite colony elimination.
  • Option 2: The Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination System is a baiting system that is revolutionary in that it can achieve complete elimination of a termite colony without drilling or the need for liquid termiticides.

Signs You Need Termite Control

  • Damaged and empty wood: In search of cellulose, termites will eat up wood leaving behind these telling grooves. Your wooden floor boards may become emptied as well so try knocking some of them to see if you can hear a hollow sound.
  • Blisters: If it looks like there's been water damage on your floor boards where there hasn't been any water, call in our Frisco termite control professionals. Termites could be feeding below and damage the subfloor which in term will impact your floorboards.
  • Droppings: Look out for what may appear to be saw dust or coffee grounds. Termites often have their entire nests inside of wooden structures so make sure to double check that their droppings aren't lining your walls.
  • Mud tubes: In order to thrive in any specific location, termites need a particular temperature and humidity level. In order to accomplish this they may make these tubes of mud that will be where mud meets your house so if you notice them call in our termite control specialists.

Our Termite Inspection Services

Thoroughly inspecting your property is the first line of defense against a possible infestation. The purpose of the inspection is to determine if, where, and how termites are getting in.

In order to find food and moisture, termites will squeeze through cracks as narrow as the thickness of a sheet of paper. Expansion joints, foundation cracks, gaps around plumbing and electrical entries are all potential entry points. A professional termite inspection requires experience and proper training, both of which you can depend on from Bug Commander Pest Control.

Upon consultation and inspection, our termite control in Frisco, TX specialist will help determine a program that is best suited for your needs. We are happy to explain each termite control method and help you decide which is right for you.
