Keep Termites Away With Professional Termite Control
Termites are bad news for your Richmond property. Not only do they reproduce quickly and live in a colony, but also they survive by eating away at your home. The result of this activity ends in two possible types of property damage. The first type of damage is structural damage. Termites will eat away at support beams, crawl spaces, basements, and other structural hot spots. Not only is this damage costly, but also it's extremely dangerous, left unchecked.
The second type of damage is cosmetic damage. Besides wood, termites eat paint, drywall, and other organic materials, which leads to issues like bubbling paint, damaged floorboards, and other concerns. What makes things worse is insurance seldom covers this type of damage.

Our Richmond-area pest control team is trained and ready to assist you with your termite control needs from start to finish.

Our Termite Control Process
We take your termite problems seriously, which is why we approach the situation methodically. As such, our first step is to perform a comprehensive inspection. During the inspection, we'll check for signs of an infestation as well as any termite activity.
Primarily, we use Termidor HE, a high-efficiency termiticide in addition to other chemicals to treat existing termites. Every property is different, which is why we modify our treatment approach to your property, ensuring maximum coverage and protection.
Preventing A Termite Infestation
Due to their feeding habits and average colony size, it's much easier to prevent an infestation than it is to control one on your own. Some ways to prevent termites are:
- Foundation inspection: Look for decaying wood, excess moisture, and other signs of an infestation around the perimeter.
- Secure the entry points: Termites are tiny, making it necessary to seal every gap, hole, crack, or crevice to keep them outside of your home.
- Moisture correction: Fixing your moisture problem is an excellent way to make your home less inviting to termites.
- Wood Storage: Keep any stored wood far away from your home and other buildings to maintain protection.
Sometimes, even the best prevention efforts fail, which means the only viable solution is to seek professional termite control services.
