Termites Be Gone: Proven Techniques for Successful Termite Control In Denton

With most pests that infest homes, there are obvious signs of their activity that let you know it is time to contact a Denton pest control company. Rodents tend to leave droppings, bed bugs bite, and ants walk out in the open. But some pests, like termites, don't leave much evidence around, and homeowners often don't realize they have them until the damage has already begun.

This guide is here to help you learn more about these wood-destroying insects and the best way to control and prevent them. For an untrained eye, noticing the evidence of termite activity can be challenging. So we'll start by explaining how to spot signs of termites in your house, where to look, and when to call in the pros. 

We'll follow this by explaining why termites infest homes in the first place. Learning what attracts these pests can aid you in monitoring your property for conditions that may catch the attention of termites searching for a food source. We'll also detail the damage they can do to help you make informed decisions regarding termite control and protection for your property. 

Finally, we will explore the benefits of professional termite extermination. Working with a local company that offers termite control near you can help you to eliminate termites quickly and avoid further damage. Continue reading to learn all about termite control, including the best ways to prevent reinfestation, with the experts at Adams Exterminating Company.

Understanding The Termite Threat: Why Termites Infest Homes

Termites eat wood, but the part of the wood they are going after is known as cellulose. Cellulose is the main component of plant cell walls, and it's found in many building materials, including wood, drywall, insulation, wallpaper, and much more. Deep within the structure of your home, active termites will chew through the wood and cellulose 24 hours a day, seven days a week, never taking a break.

Learning what attracts termites to a home can help you to monitor your property for any potential conditions that could catch the attention of these pests. Termites are constantly on the search for water, food, and shelter. If your home provides for their needs, you have a good chance of them becoming unwanted house guests.

Termites require moisture to stay alive, so any moisture issues around your home will attract them. Whether you have leaking pipes, areas with excessive humidity, or water pooling near the foundation, these conditions increase the chances of a termite infestation in your home.

Professional Termite Extermination: Know When To Call In The Experts

First and foremost, prevention is the key to controlling termites, so the best time to call in the pros is before you have a problem. Working with a local company that offers termite inspections near you is the most effective way to catch an infestation before it becomes established.

We plan to continue our trend the impeccable service which resulted in an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
  • If your company puts out rodent poison at my house, will a rat die inside?
    Yes, this is a possibility. Ideally, we prefer to use traps on the inside and in the attic, and then place rodent poison in protected stations on the exterior (which could reduce the likelihood of having a rodent die inside). However, anytime a rodenticide is used, there is always a threat that a rat or mouse could die on the inside. If the dead rodent can be located and removed, this will fix the smell. Otherwise, we sell odor control products to help with unpleasant smells should this unfortunately occur.

    We are a family owned, locally operated pest control company that has been in business since 1947. For over 75 years, our company has expanded its service area while continuing to provide exceptional customer service.

Stay Termite-Free: Helpful Tips To Prevent Reinfestation

After eliminating your termite problem, the next step is to prevent a reinfestation. You can take some steps on your own, such as repairing and replacing conditions that might attract them, and we offer professional tools for further protection. The following list explains the most effective ways to prevent termites from returning:

  • Divert water away from your foundation with gutters and downspouts.
  • Ensure you have sufficient ventilation in parts of the home with high humidity, or install dehumidifiers. 
  • Eliminate any areas where wood and soil meet on your property.
  • Seal any potential entry points on the exterior to prevent swarmers from getting inside.
  • Consider installing a termite baiting system for your home.

A termite infestation can create thousands of dollars of damage before you notice any signs.
