Your first service visit includes both an inspection and treatment. We will begin with a thorough examination of both the interior and exterior of your building/home.
During this inspection, we’ll take a look at not only the current physical condition of the wood in your home but also the conditions present that could create a potential for termite activity later. This inspection will pay close attention to any areas with wood-to-ground contact and will require the technician to be able to physically access the property and be able to get around trees, shrubs, and outdoor furniture.
If we find active termites on the building itself, after the inspection, we will do a liquid spot treatment so we can resolve termite situations immediately. We will use the trench and treat method around the exterior of the home, and we will drill small holes and treat slab foundations, crawlspaces, patios, and anything that needs to be treated.
If we find something near plumbing, we will apply preventative treatment there. We will foam the interior of the wall in areas that we find suspicious and places where we cannot physically see in the wall. If we suspect any activity or any future activity, we will treat that area. We’ll also discuss multiple ways to eliminate the termite-conducive conditions we found during the initial inspection.
