Termite Treatments & Structural Pest Control
What is Structural Pest Control?
Our approach to Treating Termites & Other WDO
Pests erode the beauty and stability of your home. We handle them quickly and effecively.
We inspect your home or business from top to bottom, inside and out, for evidence of active or past termite issues. We look for evidence of termites as well as conducive conditions.
During our inspection we will look for evidence of live or past activity (live termites, swarmers, wings, carcasses, galleries, shelter tubes, exit holes, frass or pellets) as well as evidence of damage (accessible attic framing, interior framing, ceilings, walls or baseboards, furniture and accessible crawlspace framing) in your home or structure. We use infrared cameras and moisture meters to help us detect possible problem areas and provide solutions.
If no termites are found we can provide you with a preventative treatment quote. If termites are found we can provide you with a recommendation for treatment and an estimate for that service.
Our Treatments for Your Pest & WDO Problems
How do we approach treating subterranean termites for you?
By combining a Termidor SC liquid treatment with Trelona’s highly-effective bait stations, we solve your issues with subterranean termites.
• The liquid treatment affects the termites that try to pass into your home around our treated perimeter—effectively blocking the colony.
• The bait stations work great to eliminate termites at the source—effectively eliminating the colony. We follow the labels for each of these products to eliminate Subterranean termites.
• See the attached info on these products: Termidor SC Liquid Termiticide / Trelona Bait Stations.
• Wondering how Trelona compares to Sentricon? You can also read additional info on the Trelona bait stations here: Bait stations
• You can also read additional info on Termidor SC here: Termidor SC
If we discover you have wood decaying fungi, we know how to treat this for you.
The first part of eliminating wood decaying fungi is preventing water intrusion. Once the water source is dealt with, and all wood rot is replaced, the remaining wood decaying fungi in undamaged wood can be treated.
When our team finds drywood, we use a specific strategy to eliminate it.
By performing a spot treatment or foam injection, we can stop drywood termites from infesting your home or business. However, if the infestation is to extensive – we will recommend you have a fumigation company treat the home by tent fumigation.
Powder Post Beetles and Old House Borers need a special kind of approach.
The treatment and control of powder post beetles and old house borers may include a spot treatment if an infestation can be caught early. However if the infestation is to extensive – we will recommend you have a fumigation company treat the home by tent fumigation.

Termite & Structural Pest Control
How long does the inspection take?
The short answer? As long as it takes!! A lot of detail goes into our termite inspections. But, on average, a typical 2500 square foot home (in average condition) takes around 1 hour.
Do I need to be home for the inspection?
No worries if you can not personally be present for your termite inspection. Many of our clients live out of town or work for a living! 😀 We understand these challenges. We will, however, need access to the whole building to be thorough. Please make sure your designated representative (must be 18 years of age or older) can at least open up for us and be present at the time of inspection.
How much does this cost?
The price of the inspection depends on the size of the home and the number of stories you house is. Please contact us for an exact quote.
Since you treat wood decaying fungi, Can you test and treat for mold?
A wood-decay fungus is any species of fungus that digests moist wood, causing it to rot. Some species of wood-decay fungi attack dead wood, such as brown rot or white rot. This is completely different from mold. We do not perform any kind of mold inspection, mold assessment nor any kind of environmental testing for mold.
How is pest control Regulated?
What are Termidor and Trelona?
We use only the highest quality products. Explore these two pest control products that we use below.
How long does a treatment take?
The short answer again, as long as it takes! Our treatments are designed to be thorough and leave you with peace of mind. But on an average size home or building of around 2500 square feet, the treatment usually takes a day.
Do I need to provide anything before the inspection?
We’ll need access to the property, usually by means of a home owner or a Realator. If you have knowledge of any issues before we arrive, it is helpful to provide those to us. If you have any specific concerns, let us know. We’ll give them our special attention.
What is a termite bond?
Do your termite treatments include a bond?
Can I combine inspection on multiple houses?
You can combine the following:
- Multiple inspections on one house. (For example, if you need a home inspection, a Wood Destroying Organism Inspection, and an Irrigation Inspection.)
- Multiple inspections on various houses. (For example, if you are considering buying a home but can’t decide between two homes—we’ll inspect them both for you and provide reports on both homes to help you make a good decision.)
Do you recommend contractors to fix my issues?
Upon request, we can provide a list of well-reviewed local contractors that our customers enjoy using.
However, you always hire a contractor at your own risk.
Can I see a sample report?
Sure, here is a sample report on Wood Destroying Organisms:
