When thinking about termite treatment for their Florida home, some Tampa Bay home owners may consider the hassle of moving out of their home while it is being fumigated. However, Tri-S Termite Control Services have the solution for you: Non Tent Fumigation. Creatures such as subterranean termites and Drywood termites can be the greatest enemy to properties in Tampa Fl, and the Tampa Bay area. And, even though subterranean termites and Drywood termites tend to swarm in the spring time, they are a constant threat to your home, requiring year-round vigilance.
Eastern Subterranean Termites are the most common termite to affect all parts of North America. These 1/4 inch bugs like to feed on wood, paper, cotton and tree roots, typically seeking the cellulose part of the wood. Subterranean termites can have colonies containing from 20,000 to 5 million termites, which can be devastating to any Tampa, FL, home, especially since most home owners will not see subterranean swarms until it is too late. It is estimated that subterranean termites cause roughly $2 billion worth of damage a year, and up to 95 percent of all the termite damage in North America.
While Subterranean Termites are famous for their destructive behavior, Drywood Termites shouldn’t be ignored. Like subterranean termites, Drywood termites swarm in the spring time and are also infamous for causing vast amounts of damage to property before being noticed. Drywood termites typically feed on dry wood, be it pieces of furniture, flooring, and more.
Tri-S Pest Control has been eliminating subterranean termites and drywood termites from Tampa Florida, homes for the past 25 years. We hire only the most professional and expert technicians in the field who use the following termite removal and prevention methods:
- Exterra—this pest control system eliminates the termite colony. The bait is consumed by the worker termites which then introduce it to their colony members. This product is only used for Subterranean termite control.
- Termidor—a non-repellant termite treatment. Termidor Termite Control is one of the most inexpensive yet efficient termite treatment options available. Termidor kills by ingestion, contact and the “Transfer Effect”, which means that affected insects help spread Termidor throughout the colony before dying themselves.
- Bora Care is injected directly into walls, and offers the additional benefit of protecting your structure’s wood. It also has no documented fatalities linked to it, meaning the occupants of your home or business are safe from harm.
