Pest Control for Termites
Pest Control Solutions for Termites typically include a variety of options. As with any Pest Control treatment, the first step is to identify the type of Termite causing damage in a home and where they are entering the premises. Locating Mud Tubes or signs of Termite Feeding will help distinguish the type of Termite in a home. Termites in Tennessee consist of Dampwood Termites, Drywood Termites, & Subterranean Termites.
Termite control programs are usually best tackled with eliminating as much moisture as possible. If Termites are entering from the ground, removing connections between the wood and the ground can help prevent the Termites from reaching the food source. Additionally, reducing the Moisture content of the wood will prevent Termites from surviving long-term.
