Our Termite Treatment Process

Our termite pest control process is separated into five steps.

  1. The first one involves performing an inspection to look for mud tubes that indicate the presence of subterranean termites. These pests build tubes out of fecal matter and dirt. By discovering where these tubes are located, it's possible to perform effective and long-lasting treatment.
  2. Our team will then identify the length of the tubes around your home to determine how much termiticide needs to be applied.
  3. Before applying this solution, we'll dig a sizable trench along the footing of your home's foundation, which is necessary to make sure the termiticide reaches the underground colonies. Digging trenches also allows us to create a barrier that should prevent future termite infestations.
  4. We'll then apply the termiticide along the trenches to effectively eradicate the infestation, after which we'll backfill the treatment areas to make sure your yard is in good shape.
  5. Our work doesn't end here. The final step of our treatment process involves placing monitoring and baiting stations around the perimeter of your home. These stations are designed to be pushed into the ground to form a strong barrier against infestations. Our termite treatment process is highly effective and should last for at least a year.

Importance of Routine Termite Inspections

Regular termite inspections are crucial for maintaining the structural integrity and safety of your home. Termites are often called “silent destroyers” because they can cause significant damage to wood structures before immediate or obvious signs are recognized. Regular inspections also help detect activity early, preventing extensive and costly repairs—giving homeowners time to take swift action to eradicate the termite activity before they can cause severe damage.

In addition to preventing structural damage, regular termite inspections provide peace of mind. Knowing that your home is free from termites allows you to avoid the stress and financial burden associated with severe infestations. When you call Noosa, our pest control experts will also offer guidance on preventative measures to reduce the risk of future infestations.

Types of Termites in North Carolina

North Carolina is home to many termite species, the primary of which include Formosan subterranean termites and Eastern subterranean termites.

The Formosan species is characterized by an oblong head and aggressive behavior when defending the colony. Reproductive termites have a yellowish-brown hue as well as small hairs that cover the wings.

As for Eastern subterranean termites, you can spot the workers in this species by their cream or white bodies. They may not live for more than a year. The soldiers in this species have darker heads and larger jaws. When you detect signs of termites in your home or yard, give us a call immediately.

Damage Caused by Termites

Termites feed on cellulose, which is easily found in wood. Along with wood flooring and paneling, you can also find termites in cardboard boxes. Keep in mind that worker termites eat 24/7, which is why they can do a considerable amount of damage to your home in a short period.

Signs of a Termite Infestation

The signs of a termite infestation are easy to identify if you know what to look for.

  • Brittle wood: If some of the wood around your home is brittle and easily breakable, it may be infested with termites.
  • Hollow sounds: Since termites eat wood from the inside out, if you tap on your flooring and hear hollow sounds, termites might have eaten some of the wood underneath.
  • Mud tubes: You should also look for mud tubes around the exterior of your property—Subterranean Termites build tubes to travel and protect themselves. Destroying the tubes won't be enough to solve this problem, the worker termites will create new ones in no time at all.

Schedule an Annual Termite Inspection

Our termite exterminators have the skills and experience needed to provide lasting solutions and preventive measures that will keep these destructive insects out of your home. While our treatments are meant to last for a long time, we highly recommend that you request an inspection for your Mooresville home once every year. During our annual visit, we'll search for signs that indicate termite activity. We'll also make sure that there isn't anything in or around your home that might attract termites.
