Spring marks the unofficial kick off of “termite season.” These pesky critters rise in population as the temperatures start to heat up for spring and summer in Eastern North Carolina. Termites not only are a nuisance to deal with, but their destructive tendencies can leave property damage and can even be dangerous to you and your family. Commonly referred to as “silent destroyers,” termites are notorious for chewing through wood, flooring, and even wallpaper. Their destructive habits cause concern for home and property owners.
The most important factor in controlling and eliminating a termite infestation is to first determine what is causing the termites. If a suspicion of termites is known, it is imperative to identify the source and size of the infestation, note any damage already done, and begin taking the steps to not only eradicate an existing termite problem, but to take the next steps to keep them gone.
An initial inspection will shed light on the problem and allow a pest control expert to start preparing a plan of action to treat the termite problem. These plans always include Integrate Pest Management (IPM) techniques, which guarantee safety, effectiveness, and longevity within the treatment process. There are a variety of options when it comes to eliminating termites. At Rid A Pest, we offer liquid termite treatments, termite baiting systems, and green solutions for termite control. All of which are customized with your personal home and unique situation in mind.
It is important to note that termites are extremely drawn to moisture, which is why there is usually a spike in infestations as we head into the rainy season. Another factor that makes homeowners in Eastern NC at risk to termite infestations is that the further east in North Carolina you travel, the more moisture you are going to experience inside and outside your home.
Through a variety of moisture control solutions, we can keep homes sturdy, sanitary, and pest-free- including termites. Moisture control not is a vital aspect of pest prevention, but it can also prevent humidity, structural damage, health problems, and more. We also offer crawl space encapsulation, which can be a great measure to deter pests from your home. By creating a closed crawl space, homeowners often report significantly lower energy costs, fewer pests, less mildew, and other benefits.
