Asheville's businesses, homes, and historic buildings attract much more than tourists every year. Subterranean termites represent a greater threat to property in WNC than tornadoes, fire, and hurricanes combined. North Carolina is located in a zone with a moderate to heavy infestation rate. This means the potential for termite damage is significant. In states like ours where termites are active and widespread, it is essential to maintain an effective termite prevention and control program. Termites are not easily detected, because they come in from underground and destroy a home from the inside out. By the time evidence is seen, damage may already be done. Don't let your home become a statistic. Let an ESI trained technician find any termites inside and even around your home to protect your investment. 
 

 

TERMITE CONTROL SERVICES

Liquid Treatment

Our highly trained technician will perform an inspection to identify any past or current subterranean termite infestation. Then they will create a trench in the soil around the perimeter of the structure and apply a non-repellent liquid treatment to soil. The non-repellent treatment allows foraging termites to travel through the barrier, contracting the chemical on their bodies, then returning to the colony for chemical transfer and colony elimination. An annual inspection follows for the monitoring of any new infestations that try to occur.

Baiting System

Our highly trained technician will perform an inspection to identify any past or current subterranean termite infestation. The technician will install a termite monitoring bait system. Stations will be placed at approximately 10 to 15 foot intervals. Stations are then monitored every 90 days for activity. Once activity is discovered, a bait cartridge is installed for the termites to feed on. The termites will then return to the colony for elimination. A quarterly inspection is maintained for the prevention of any new infestation.

Borate Treatments

This liquid mineral salt application is directly applied to wood components. Borate treatments eliminate the need for large amounts of water typically used in soil treatments and offer a lower impact on the environment. Mineral salt does not break down over time, so it remains in the wood for the life of it, providing residual protection. Borate treatments can prevent and eliminate subterranean termites, carpenter ants, powder post beetles, and old house borers. Contact us to see if your home qualifies for a borate treatment.
