Raleigh Termite Control
Raleigh is the capital of North Carolina and is home to over 451,066 people. Although Raleigh is a rapidly growing metropolitan area, it is surrounded by several small towns and bedroom communities, consisting of Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary, Morrisville, Apex, Wake Forest, Knightdale, Garner, Clayton, Holly Springs, and Fuquay Varina. Although Raleigh has many historic neighborhoods, there are also many areas around the Beltline (the primary highway that encircles Raleigh) where new communities have sprung up to accommodate those that want to have quick access to the city, yet enjoy that same type of access to the countryside of Wake County.
Raleigh is also know as “The City of Oaks” due to the multitude of oak trees that are common throughout the area, and since Raleigh is blanketed in oaks as well as various other types of trees, it’s also very popular for termites that not only feed on the wood of the trees, but also choose the many homes in Raleigh as a premium location for feeding and reproducing. Raleigh residents who are concerned whether or not they have termites can easily check using the methods below, but there is no substitute for having the termite control experts at EcoTek to come do a free termite inspection that also includes a free estimate should termites be found.

How to Determine if You Have Termites
Most homeowners just suppose they don’t really have a termite problem until they discover a colony of termites under their home, within a wall, or they see termite dirt tubes similar to the picture below. By the time it’s determined there are termites in the house it’s completely too late, and the termite infestation has already done thousands of dollars in structural damage to the house or business.
- Discarded Wings
When termites leave their nests to start a new colony they fly only a short distance, and then discard their wings close to an access point because they won’t use them again.
- Mud Tubes
Pencil sized tubes next to building access points. Break them in the middle to see if termites come out.
- Wood Damage
Usually below and behind surfaces . Damage shows up in long grooves.
Waiting until you believe that you’ve got termites is not recommended, especially when you consider you can get a free of charge termite inspection done right away that offers you a free estimation of costs, and if it’s determined you don’t have termites, then you can be at ease that your house is safe. The free estimate we provide will not only cover the expense of exterminating the termites and the damage cleanup, but it will also outline any costs you need to know for damage repairs. Even though the damage reconstruction is optional through us, you’ll find we can perform the task for much less than if you retain an independent company to handle them. Not only do we offer a all-in-one termite extermination solution that includes the treatment, the cleaning, and the repair to the damages done, but most of all we also provide a continuing service that guarantees you won’t ever again have to worry about termites.
Potent Termite Treatments
EcoTek uses a liquid insecticide using Termidor SC, which is scored as the top liquid termite treatment on the market for 5 years running. Our professional termite exterminators deliver termite insecticide to the top of your foundation to assure anything foraging into the wood of your house won’t make it too far. The termites will take the treatment into the colony which should eliminate the queen and the entire colony.
Chemical Free Monitoring Stations
At EcoTek, we offere chemical free monitoring stations. We use the EcoTek Term-Pro stations which are made of wood and cardboard. These stations naturally attract termites. Our experts set up and monitor guarded bait stations within your house to make sure termites aren’t devouring your biggest investment, and if any bait station is found to have termite activity, EcoTek is there to apply safe, protected, methods to eliminate the foraging termites.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is the treatment safe for my family?
Our treatment is safe for your family. We use Termidor SC which is one of the safest products on the market. It is applied directly to your foundation and used on the exterior of the home. Our technicians are trained to apply the insecticide in a way that will keep your family and pets safe.
How quickly can termites damage my property?
A termite colony will eat about a pound of wood a day. Although this may not sound like a lot, a termite colony can eat through an entire home in just two years. Another thing to consider is that you may have more than one colony of termites attacking your home at the same time. As soon as you spot termite activity, you should contact a professional to schedule an inspection.
How do your monitoring stations work?
Our technicians will install monitoring stations around your property. These stations are chemical free and are made up of wood and cardboard. Then our technicians will check the stations to see if there is any termite activity in them. If there are, our technicians will apply treatment to the affected stations and to your home if needed.
How long does a termite inspection take?
A termite inspection will take between 30 to 60 minutes depending on the size of your home. Our technician will inspect your property for signs of termites as well as potential damage. If you are free from termites, he will let you know. If he does find termites, then he will explain your treatment options and a free quote. Each plan is dependent on the type of treatment that you need.
Do I need to be home during an inspection?
You will need to be available during an initial inspection so that we can look at all areas of your property and discuss treatment options with you.
GET YOUR E-PRICE NOW!
EcoTek came highly recommended from some friends of ours that had a pretty bad situation with termites in their house in Apex. Fortunately for us, ours wasn’t as bad, but if we hadn’t had them come out and do an inspection then it could have been years before we found out we had termites, and by then it would have cost us a fortune.

Call us before noon Monday to Friday, and we’ll treat your yard the same day!
