Treating for Termites

Termites in TucsonWith Winter here, certain pests will be moving indoors.  Due to the cooler soil temperatures during Winter, Termites remain very active.  In Arizona, it is not a matter of if a house will get Termites, but when a house will get Termites.

It is always much more expensive to repair termite damage, then to take the steps to prevent the situation. Thankfully, when treating for Termites, there are a couple options to choose from. The first option is a liquid chemical barrier treatment. Liquid treatments or soil injection treatments are the most common treatment method and have been the standard in the industry for over 50 years. This treatment is a non-repellent barrier that kills any termites that enter into the chemically treated zone. Therefore, presenting Termites with a roadblock to keep them from attacking your home.
