Fall means nice weather, pumpkin spice lattes, and unfortunately, pest infestations. As the weather gets colder, termites and other pests begin to look for a safe, warm place to call home. The good news is that there are some easy ways to keep unwanted visitors away from your home. Horne's Pest Control is happy to offer a few simple tips to ward off termites.
How To Prevent Termites
With every new swarm, termites form new colonies and that require food and a new home. And your warm, cozy house can provide both of those things. If you want to keep your house from being the next target of termites, there are a few measures that you should keep in mind:
- There should be no wood piles, wood scraps, or lumber around or near your house.
- Keep plants, including gardens, at least 6 inches away from your home’s foundation and walls.
- Turn off outdoor lights during swarming season, especially those close to your home.
If you want to get rid of termites and save your house from infestations then you should reach out to a professional pest control company in Augusta GA.
Horne's Pest Control is the best company in the area to get rid of pests and termites. We believe in providing quality service and offering long-lasting termite treatments for your property. Our company has experienced termite inspectors that thoroughly examine the area infested by termites, locate the source of that infestation, and discuss treatment options.
Horne's offers the best termite treatment available in the Augusta area and has options to relieve you of all your worries. Some of their termite treatment options include:
Subterranean Termite Treatment - We use Exterra, a termite baiting station that is installed in the ground around your home. Exterra stations contain two bait formulations – paper and paste. These stations also contain actual wood – the natural food of native termites.
Foundation Treatment With Termidor - Property and buildings around the Augusta area are at particular risk of wood-boring pest infestations because of the humid climate. We dig a shallow trench around the entire interior foundation wall and pillars. We then rake out any debris from your crawl space that might serve as food for termites. We dig a trench around the entire exterior of the foundation that is not joined by concrete or asphalt. Finally, we inject Termidor into these trenches before ﬁlling in the trenches.
Interior Wood Termite Treatment - We can either inject Premise Gel Bait directly into the termite-infested timbers or inject Premise Foam into the wall voids and cavities where the termites are. The foam ﬁlls the voids and slowly penetrates into the wood.
Termite Damage Warranty
Horne's Pest Control provides a comprehensive termite damage warranty after your termite treatment. This warranty is transferable if you sell your home and can be renewed for the entire life of your home.
