Termite infestation is one of the primary reasons for property damage worldwide. The infestation can quickly spread to various areas of your property and become widespread if you ignore the initial signs of infestation.
Tom’s Pest Control provides a comprehensive pest management service to our customers. The treatment includes ongoing control measures to prevent future infestation and addressing the damage due to current termite issues. After exterminating termites from your property, our pest technicians apply wood hardener if the holes are small or insignificant. However, if the holes are large or the damage is significant, we either add wood fillers or advise you to repair the damage. Wood fillers are putty-like material that comes in tubes and can quickly be applied to the holes for quick settling.
At Tom’s Pest Control, we focus on offering termite management solutions that give lasting results. It is important to address the factors that encourage termite infestation at your property through preventive treatment measures. Therefore, we complete both wood and soil treatments to kill termites from your space and make them termite resistant. We prefer borate treatment to eliminate termites from woods and avoid future infestation. Similarly, our pest technicians will dig a trench around your property structure, mix eco-friendly termiticide with the soil, and fill the trench with the soil to create a termite barrier around the property structure. If we spot drywood termites at your property, we may also apply fumigation to kill the pest quickly.
If you want to control the termites on your own using some natural methods, we recommend you try applying boric acid. It is a white powder and one of the preferred choices by homeowners for eliminating various pests from their environment. You can sprinkle the powder directly into the infested areas to kill the termites. Additionally, you can mix the powder with water and prepare a spray to apply it in the affected areas to address the current issues and prevent future infestation. Remember that boric acid is a poisonous chemical, and you shouldn’t forget to wear masks and goggles while applying. Also, keep children and pets away from the spayed or sprinkled areas.
Home insurance programs do not generally cover termite damage. Insurances are designed to address sudden and accidental damage, whereas termite infestation and associated damage happen over a period of a few weeks or months. Importantly, any damage due to animals or insects is not covered by insurance plans. While this is the case, you can still check with your insurance provider to see if they give limited coverage for termite issues. You can also check the terms and conditions of your home insurance to see the inclusions and exclusions.
