Does Termite Treatment Work?

The most common termite treatments are liquid termite treatments and baiting systems. Both are regarded to be highly effective in controlling and preventing infestations. Liquid termiticides allow for accurate treatment with minimal disruption to your landscape, utilizing a responsible and low-odor dosage. Liquid treatments have been known to last for more than a decade. Baiting techniques provide an outstanding system for those who prefer to have a professional regularly monitor their home and baiting stations for effectiveness in keeping termites away.

The Best and Most Safe Termite Treatments in Virginia

  1. Termite Bait Stations
    • Bait stations are installed under the ground on the exterior of your home. The scientifically engineered bait begins working to kill any active colonies.
    • The active ingredient in this engineered bait, which is nearly ten times more attractive to termites than wood, works to prevent termites from maturing. When the termites are unable to molt, they will die.
    • Ongoing service and inspections by a professional will ensure the bait system continues to work month after month and year after year.
  2. Liquid Termite Treatments
    • When a termite ingests or comes in contact with a termiticide, it becomes a carrier. The termite will then transfer the treatment to other termites it contacts.
    • The affected termites become secondary carriers, behaving normally while they transfer the treatment to other termites they contact, spreading the product like a virus throughout the colony.
    • This unique, spiraling process is called the “transfer effect,” and it helps deliver devastating results to termites in order to maximize the protection of your home.
