Termites are a force to be reckoned with. They cause millions of dollars of damage every year in the United States despite the many attempts people make to eradicate them. No matter how often people spray and inspect their homes, there is no guarantee you are really protected unless you hire a knowledgeable exterminator to manage the job. Termite Pest Control is serious business, and not taking it seriously could cost you your home.

Part of the problem is the number of termites that exist. There are approximately 50 species in the United States. Not all are found everywhere, but every region of the country has more than one species to contend with. Since effective treatment will often depend on knowing what pest you are looking at, it is important that an appropriate identification be performed.

One of the most insidious types is the subterranean termite. These nasty creates are a formidable foe that can breed rapidly. They feed on wood, leaving a path of destruction behind them. There are often few obvious outward signs of their existence. This cloaked attack makes it possible for them to nearly hollow-out entire beams, leaving only a thin shell of the exterior. If this is a support beam in a home, the entire structure will be at risk.

Termite Pest Control has previously focused on eliminating the pests already in the home and looking for methods to discourage them from returning. This was not enough. Today, treatment is about taking the matter to them, in the ground. By installing extermination and detection systems directly in the yard itself, it is possible to stop the problem before it starts. These systems will detect the presence of termites and deploy pesticides to kill all ages of the insect.

Accutech Pest Management utilizes this type of system and is who you should call first if you suspect you have a termite problem. Even if you have not seen any of these pests but have dealt with them in the past, make a call. A full home and yard inspection will put your mind at ease, either because it will show nothing is there or because it will find termites and treatment can begin. Make sure your home is protected. Call them today.
