Termites are abundant throughout Mississippi. The most common termite in Mississippi is the eastern subterranean termite which lives in the soil. Subterranean termites are social insect that live in colonies. A mud tube is often a sign of infestation, although these mud tubes are not always visible they can be hidden by walls, plumbing, cabinets and other obstructions.
Liquid Treatments are the most common treatment for termites. A liquid treatment is applied by trenching around the foundation of a home. We then apply treatment in the trenches all around the structure. We will fill in the trenches and then apply a final treatment to the soil to complete the treatment process.
We treat our homes with a Termidor Product. Termidor is one of the more recognizable non-repellent brands. These non-repellents have been a game changer for termite control. With non-repellents, the termites cannot detect that the product is there.
Since termites are social insects they get the product on themselves and transfer the product to other members of the colony, ultimately taking care of the entire colony.
Your contract includes a 1 year warranty with an option to renew that contract each year for a fee. This fee will be listed in the contract provided to you at the time of your treatment.
What do I look for to see if I have termites?
Termites live in underground colonies, tunneling undetected through the soil into the structure. Because of their subterranean nature, an infestation may go undetected. There are warning signs of an active termite infestation. Here are to examples of what to look for:
- Winged insects commonly known as “swarmers” in or around home or winged parts scattered around your doors or windows. This usually occurs in the spring, before temps get above 85°.
- Mud tubes leading from the ground to a piece of infested wood, up foundation walls, or even breaking through your sheet rock, baseboards, or window trim.
- Any previous damage to your home from moisture will increase the odds of getting some form of damage
