Termite Control

termite mud tubesMost homeowners assume that they don’t have a termite problem until it’s too late and they discover a swarm of termites, or they see termite mud tubes similar to the picture on the right. By the time either of these discoveries are made it’s usually well into a full blown termite infestation that has already caused thousands of dollars in structural damage to the home or business.

Effective Termite Treatments

EcoTek uses a liquid treatment using Termidor SC, which has been rated as the best liquid termite insecticide on the market for 5 years running.  Our EcoTek termite control professional will deliver termite insecticide to the top of your foundation to assure anything foraging into the wood of your home won’t make it too far. The termites will take the insecticide back to the colony, which will kill the queen and eliminate the termites.

Chemical Free Monitoring Stations

At EcoTek, we offer a chemical free monitoring system. We use the EcoTek Term-Pro monitoring stations that are made of wood and cardboard. This naturally attracts the termites. Our technicians install and monitor protected bait stations around your home to make sure termites aren’t forging towards your biggest investment.  If any station is found to have termite activity, EcoTek is there to apply safe, protected, methods to eliminate foraging termites.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    How will termites affect my property value?

    Termites can cause your property’s value to decrease due to the damages that they cause. It can be expensive to complete the repairs, but once you do, you should see the value of your home return to normal. Many homes in the area deal with termites and continuing treatment and showing that you have completed the repairs make it possible for you to sell your home at current market rates.

    How often do I need to have home inspected for termites?

    You should have your home inspected for termites each year. Since termites will swarm during the spring, it is a good idea to have the home inspected during that time. EcoTek offers free termite inspections. If you are termite free, you can rest easy. If you are not, EcoTek can offer treatment plans to help you deal with the infestations and prevent new ones from returning.

    How can I prevent termites?

    There are steps you can take to prevent termites from entering your home.

    • Keep wood and mulch away from your foundation – Mulch and wood piles are both easy sources of food for termites and when they are against your foundation it gives termites easy access to crawl up and begin eating your home. Choose other types of mulch and consider moving woodpiles to other parts of the property.
    • Treat decking and other wood material in your yard – Make sure that you use treated wood when building your deck, fences or playgrounds in your yard. This will prevent termites from finding it and taking up residence in your yard or moving onto your home.
    • Keep your home in good condition – Missing shingles in your roof can give termites easy access to your home. If the gratings over access points or vents in your home are missing, it can make it easier for termites to invade your home. Make sure you address leaks as quickly as possible since termites are attracted to wet damp wood.

    How do I know if I have termites instead of ants?

    Termites and ants have a different appearance. Termites have a wider waist and appears to be the same width all the way down. Termites wings are uniform in size and twice the size of the body. Ants have segmented bodies with narrow waists. The wings are different sizes and smaller than termite wing.

    What damage can termites do to my property?

    Termites will eat through the wood in the home. This can weaken the wood and floor joists. Depending on where the damage is, it can make your home unsafe. Some termites will also eat through casings surrounding electrical wiring which can create a fire hazard.
