Termite Protection

Termite protection is an absolute necessity for your Tennessee home. Each year, termites cause more damage to homes in Tennessee than any other natural disaster. These silent destroyers can cause severe structural damage as they chew through your home’s wooden architecture. Along with destroying your home’s market value, termite damage could lead to massive costly repairs that are uncovered by your homeowner’s insurance policy.

At U.S. Pest, we help customers combat termite infestations with Termidor. Termidor is the best termite control product available. We believe a liquid barrier treatment is the only option for protection against termites.

Our Termite Prevention Methods

Our expert team of termite professionals develop unique strategies to guarantee that your residence will stay termite-free. Instead of using inferior baiting methods recommended by other pest companies, we utilize Termidor liquid treatment. Termidor is the best termite control product in the industry. We believe a liquid barrier treatment is the ONLY option for protection against these wood-eating destroyers. Rather than relying on attracting termites to poison a colony, Termidor creates an invisible barrier that protects your entire property.

What is Termidor?

Termidor is a powerful, long-lasting solution that termites cannot detect, making it impossible for them to avoid. Unlike traditional termite baiting, Termidor works by bonding to exposed termites, who return to the colony with the treatment. This widespread exposure leads to the destruction of the entire termite colony.

How effective is Termidor? USDA Forest Service tests show no sign of re-infestation more than 15 years after treatment. In addition, Termidor is safe to both pets and humans. It’s odorless, so you won’t even notice it’s there.

Why trust a liquid termite treatment?

Liquid termite barriers don’t rely on the hope that subterranean termites are attracted to bait. Instead, termites will inadvertently come into contact with the treatment as they seek out wooden structures to feed upon. Liquid barriers are also long-lasting and do not require regular refilling as bait stations would. Because termites carry the Termidor treatment back to their nests, you can trust that a single point of exposure will lead to the destruction of a termite colony.

Potential Signs of Termite Damage

How can you tell if your home is at risk of termite damage? There are plenty of signs to look for, from structural damage to evidence of termite biology and habits. These include:

Structural Signs

Termites in Tennessee eat away at your home’s infrastructure. Many of the symptoms of a termite inspection involve weakening of wood throughout your home. Look out for many of the following:

  • Discolored or drooping walls or ceiling
  • Peeling or bubbling paint resembling water damage
  • Wood that sounds hollow when tapped
  • Pinpoint holes in drywall
  • Sagging or buckling floors
  • Excessively squeaky floorboards
  • Sticking or jammed windows or doors (termites deform the frames)

Biological Signs

Termites also leave behind signs of their biological functions when they infest your home. These signs include:

  • Mud tubes creeping up the foundation of your home
  • Maze-like patterns in furniture, floorboards, or walls
  • Mounds of drywood termite pellets, often resembling small piles of pepper
  • Piles of wings resembling fish scales

Termites In Tennessee Versus Termites in California

Termites are one of the most destructive pests found in Tennessee and California. While there are different climate types in each of these states, both states have regions in which different species of termites thrive. Regardless of the species of termite, termite control treatments are unchanging, but may result in different application methods.

If you’ve moved from California to Tennessee, then you know that Termite Protection is a necessity as a home or business owner. While in California, you may have become accustomed to protecting your home from Drywood Termites. Drywood Termites are known to infest above-ground wood that is free from moisture, which typically includes attic framework, wall studs, window beams, furniture, or wooden items within or around the home.

Subterranean Termites are the most common species of termites in Tennessee. Subterranean Termites thrive in regions of higher moisture and humidity levels. This species of termites live in colonies underground and build tunnels out of mud to obtain above-ground food sources. Tennesseans commonly experience structural damage from Termites around the foundation of buildings, inside of crawlspaces, on floor joists, beams, and the subflooring of structures.

No structure or property is protected from termites if left untreated. Subterranean Termites in Tennessee can cause a significant amount of damage to structures and buildings. Dampwood Termites are also a threat in Tennessee. U.S. Pest Protection Termite Professionals in Tennessee apply a highly affective, liquid termiticide treatment to protect, control, and prevent termites and the potential damage that they can impose upon structures and properties.

U.S. Pest Protection Termite Professionals use Termidor HE and specific treatment methods to protect thousands of homes and businesses across Middle Tennessee. Due to Subterranean Termites living underground, these chemical treatments are applied into the soil around building structures and properties. Concrete or asphalt foundations are drilled to ensure protection on sides of structures that soil is covered up, such as driveways, patios, and sidewalks.

In conclusion, property owners in Tennessee should be aware of the presence of termites and the damage that they can impose on your structure or property if left untreated. It’s always better to pay for the protection, than to pay for the potential damage.
