- Structures with a crawl space will receive an inspection from underneath.
- Any and all findings will then be recorded on the graph.
- A treatment strategy will be developed if an infestation is found.
What Termites Look Like and Where They Live
Termites only need a 1/32″ space to build their tunnels through a crack in the cement foundation or expansion joints in the structure of your home to find cellulose. Those termites must return to the ground every 24 hours for moisture and to deliver cellulose back to the colony for its food supply. The Worker and the Nymphs gather the food for the rest of the termite colony. The other cast members of the colony are the Queen along with many soldiers and many secondary reproducers.

How We Stop Termites
- Our treatment strategy often involves both methods. We use the termite baiting system as our main treatment method. However, there are times when some liquid treatment is necessary to stop an active infestation.
- It is very seldom that more than 20 to 30 linear feet of a structure would need to be treated with liquid. In most cases, only 20 to 30 gallons of liquid chemical is needed.
- The Combination Treatment strategy allows all of the described results to be accomplished with the least amount of impact on the environment as possible.
- This treatment also comes with a renewable lifetime warranty that includes a damage guarantee.
