Termite Control West Palm Beach, FL

Termite Pest Control

Termites are one of the pests that can leave to use so much money doing repairs once they invade your home. They slowly eat up your wood and any organic matter they find to survive. If not controlled early enough, the damage might become too much for you to handle. If you find yourself under a termite attack, you would want to call Shoreline Environmental Pest Solutions for an inspection that would help in controlling these pests.

South Florida is a hotbed for termite infestations that can cause extensive structural damage to your home and your personal possessions. With our hot and humid climate we have not one, but two types of termites, that can wreak havoc on your property or business.

Most Floridians are familiar with the garden variety of the subterranean termites. They live in the ground and build mud tubes to gain entry into your home. There are several species, some more destructive than others. Formosan termites can be extremely difficult to eliminate under certain conditions.

Types of Termites

Termites are of different types, and no matter the type, they all can leave with several damages to repair, primarily when not controlled. However, some termites tend to be more destructive than others, and you need to control and treat them before they cause you damage that will carry away some dollars from you. Any termites infesting your area will require you to talk to a termite control company to help you get rid of them.

Drywood Termites:

These will live and infest in dry wood and do not require contact with the soil, unlike the subterranean and Formosan species. They feed on dry wood; however, you can still find them in woods located near water places. They can build multiple colonies in your home hence may be a bit difficult for you to treat. They will shed wings after swarming; hence can be easily noticed and differentiated from other types.

These social insects live in trees and other outside sources that also provide their food–cellulose or wood. These termites are aerial attackers and fly into your attic or ground crawlspace. They can also start their damaging presence by doors, windows, and siding. Since they live differently, the treatment is also termite-specific. Shoreline Environmental Pest Solutions offers several different, economical and convenient treatment plans, to eliminate these wood destroying organism from your house or business.

Dampwood Termites:

These are termites that live in high moist content woods where they source their food. They infest homes from leaky pipes, places, or places where wood is touching a moist area. They don’t build mud tubes but cover their entry points with fecal matter.

Subterranean Termites:

Subterranean termites are the most common types of termites that tend to be found in every state. This kind of species will live underground and in moist areas aboveground, especially in secluded places. To gain access to food sources, they build mud tubes that protect them from the open air. They can be the most destructive when not controlled. They come in different species, e.g., the Formosan termites. They are much more destructive than their dry wood cousins, and a colony may contain up to a million termites. The economic impact upon your home can be mitigated with the  professional application of Termidor.

 

No Tent Termite Control

“No Tent” refers to the preferred treatment against Drywood Termites. As with all our services, we thoroughly inspect your property for signs of an infestation. It may be iridescent wings in the attic or on a window sill. It may be the entire termite body that is visible. It could be a swarming around a light in your house in the evening. If you should discover the frass (fecal pellets) of these termites, then you know that some damage, perhaps significant, has already occurred. Generally, in CBS block homes, localized treatments can remedy this infestation.

Our technicians can treat known galleries in the wood with an injection of a foam Termidor product. Some of the drywood termites, before they die in several days, will groom and feed other termites transferring the killing agent in the product. This will reduce, if not eradicate the colony, down to an insignificant number. The attic or crawlspace may be sprayed with Timbor also to destroy and add residual protection against any future drywood termite flights.

Fumigation-TENTING

An honest and thorough inspection is needed to ascertain that the structure is treatable using the above processes. For older framed homes, that have heavy and numerous points of infestation, a fumigation-TENTING- of the structure may be required. Most homes can forgo this intrusive and inconvenient service. But, if Shoreline Environmental Pest Solutions thinks a fumigation is a proper treatment, we would recommend that, though we do not offer this service. In this case, we would never attempt to offer an alternative service that would not solve your problem. We are a family owned and operated company with an outstanding reputation. Our “No Tent”  process offers numerous advantages over a fumigation. Your family or business does not have to shut down and move out for several days, no removal of un-canned food, cosmetics, and medications. Your pets are not dislocated; there is no damage to exterior landscaping (that hopefully we fertilize and protect for you.) And the structure and in particular the roof is not subjected to traumatic exposures. If we can offer our services for the treatment of Drywood Termites, we will provide a guarantee that is binding to the property as long as the annual renewal is paid.
