Keep Termites at Bay with Termite Treatment Services in Gastonia & Monroe

Termites can pose a huge hazard to your home or commercial property. Because these sneaky insects can go unnoticed for a long period of time, the damage they do might not come to light until it’s too late. Instead of taking the risk, treat your property for termites quickly with HMO Pest Control. Early detection of termites can help prevent permanent damage to your home or commercial property. Our team of expert technicians offer complete termite treatment services in Charlotte, Gastonia, and Monroe. We’ll come to your home or commercial property and conduct a thorough inspection to locate the site of your termite infestation and provide options to treat the problem, fast. 

How do you know if you have termites? Keep an eye out for these signs that indicate a termite infestation: 

  • Cracked or bubbling paint
  • Wood that sounds hollow 
  • Mud tubes on walls or in crawl spaces
  • A swarm of winged insects in your home or yard
  • Discarded wings from swarming insects

Any combination of the signs above can indicate a termite problem. It is not always immediately evident that termites are what is causing the damage to your home, which is why it’s important to get a professional inspection from our expert technicians. We’ll help you identify the location of the infestation and how big it is so that we can properly assess what needs to be done to solve your termite problems as soon as possible. 

Termite Treatment Options for Your Property 

There are a variety of different ways to treat termites depending on the type of termite, how advanced the infestation is, and how big of a problem you’re facing. Our team will first conduct an inspection of your home or commercial property to assess these factors, then we’ll be able to recommend a treatment method that is right for your situation.

One of the most effective options is an undetectable chemical that is a non-repellant. Termites can’t see, smell, or taste this chemical, which has a delayed toxicity. This means that the termites can spread the exposure to this chemical to other termites within the treatment area and even to the underlying colony. Because of the delayed toxicity, this option is a long-term treatment option that takes a few months to work most effectively but has long-lasting protection. 

Other treatment options include borate treatments or foaming penetrants. When applied to affected areas, the treatment sinks into the wood and causes the wood to become toxic to certain types of termites.

Termite Inspections in Charlotte, NC

Before starting treatment for our Gastonia, Charlotte, or Monroe customers, we will always begin with an inspection.

  1. We start the process by scoping out the areas you would like inspected. We’ll need access to your home, garage, crawl space, attic, and wherever else termites may reside.
  2. The next step is to search for evidence of termite activity. As we mentioned earlier, this often includes several key signs. Among other things, our experts will search for:
  • Mud tubes - Think of a mud tube like a miniature highway for termites. It’s how they get safely from point A to point B in their living spaces. Not all types of termites make these, but if present, they are a definite flag for termite activity.
  • Wood damage - Our inspectors check for signs of hollowed-out wood.
  • Frass - Frass is the word for termite droppings. An expert can tell the difference between frass and other types of insect droppings.
  • Swarm evidence - Termites often shed their wings before a swarm where they look for a new spot to feast on. This evidence will typically be present in the spring.

Once the inspection is complete, our termite experts will review their findings with you and recommend next steps if there is evidence of a termite infestation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Do Termites Look Like?

Termites are small insects that generally range in size between 1 and 25mm (0.04 and 1 inch) in length. They are typically creamy white or light brown in color and have cylindrical, segmented bodies with wings. There are four distinct groups of termites based on their behavior, including subterranean, drywood, dampwood, and mound-building termites. Different species within these groups also vary slightly in appearance due to slight variations in physical features such as antennae length and body shape. While some types of flying termite swarmers look similar to other flying pests like ants, careful observance can help identify the correct insect since the winged swarmers often have straight antennae compared to the bent antennae found on ants.

How Do I Prevent Termite Infestations?

Preventing termites in your home is an important task that should not be taken lightly. Regular maintenance and preventative treatments are essential to keeping your home protected from these destructive insects. Start by making sure that the soil around your foundation is free of organic debris such as mulch, logs, and tree stumps; this limits the number of areas where termites can burrow. Additionally, eliminating any access points for moisture or water into your home's walls will reduce the chances of dampness encouraging termite colonization. Lastly, speak to a professional pest control service about commercial chemical treatments or baiting systems that can offer further preventative protection from termites.
