Effective Termite Control for San Antonio homes
San Antonio and the surrounding areas experience high termite activity.
It’s not a matter of if your home will become infested by these
wood destroying insects but when.
At Family Pest Control, we understand the havoc these insects can cause.
subterranean termites or Formosan termites, they’re problematic and need to go. That’s
why we perform highly effective termite control services that address
foraging termites as well as entire termite colonies.
Our Termite Control Process
Family Pest Control has been treating termites for almost 40 years. We’re
termite experts and have a comprehensive process for finding, eliminating,
and preventing termite infestations.
A licensed pest control technician will come to your property to conduct
a thorough inspection to identify if you have termites, the severity of
termite activity and damage, as well as the conducive conditions that
could be attracting these pests to your home.
Based on the findings, the technician will develop a termite control proposal
for you to review.
Our expert personnel relies on Termidor® liquid treatments to completely
eradicate termite activity within our customers' homes. We will dig a
shallow trench around the entire perimeter of your home and rod the product
into the base of the foundation to create a barrier against termites.
We do not stop there. We will treat all plumbing penetrations through the
entirety of your foundation and, if necessary, treat any crawl space or
attic that may be susceptible to termite activity. The only way to fully
stop termite damage is by eliminating all threats.
How Does Termidor® Work?
Termidor® is especially effective because it binds to the soil of a
treated area, leaving it protected for up to seven years after treatment.
It is an odor-free substance that termites are naturally attracted to.
Once termites encounter the product, they carry it back to their colonies
and spread throughout their community. Once infected, the termites die
Termite Pre-Treatment Services
Pre-treatment services are highly recommended in most southern states.
The warmer climate ensures termites can easily live all year ‘round.
Pre-treatment describes prevention methods taken for new construction
projects and homes fortunate enough to be unaffected by termites so far.
Termidor® Termite Pre-Treatment
Typically applied during the construction phase of a foundation, Termidor®
can be applied to the entire surface area where a new foundation will
Should you plan on digging into the ground for a basement foundation, the
Termidor® pre-treatment will be applied after the dig site has been
cultivated and before any of the actual construction is completed.
Providing the construction crew with a detailed report of treatment is
key to prevent removal of the treated ground.
Additional treatments may be necessary as the foundation is poured or erected
to ensure adequate prevention. These services also include a one-year
total home (renewable) termite treatment warranty.
Borate Termite Pre-Treatment
Borate pre-treatment is slightly different from Termidor® pre-treatment
methods. Borate pre-treatment methods are also performed during construction,
but after the foundation is poured or erected.
Once the frame of the home is being created, our technicians can use Borate
to protect any untreated wood from destructive termites by spraying the
wood. The wood will absorb the Borate and retain it for years of future
protection and prevention.
Family Termite Warranty
We are confident in our training and in our products. We provide all of
our customers with a one-year termite treatment warranty* that can be
transferred if the home is sold.
We also provide extended termite treatment warranties for any qualifying home. **
