Silver Spring Termite Pest Control
Termites can cause significant structural damage to homes and business with a single colony consuming up to a pound (half a kilo) of wood each day. As social insects that establish large colonies fairly quickly, both the male and female termite feed on wood and continually work to build a nest for their eggs. The presence of termites, particularly in the spring, often indicates that a colony is well established in the near vicinity. Termites prefer decaying wood and despite causing significant damage, they often leave a physical effect that at first appears to render wood as smooth and clean. Atek Pest Management, Inc. pest control experts are experienced at identifying and ridding any Silver Spring home or business from the threat of termites and protecting your property from the significant harm caused by a termite infestation.
Extensive and Expensive Termite Damage
Termites are able to adapt to ever changing environments and can wreak more havoc than a series of natural disasters combined including hurricanes and hailstorms. Damage due to termites is estimated to be more than 1 billion annually in the US alone. Most insurance companies will not provide coverage for personal loss incurred from the ravages of a termite colony.
How to Get Rid of Termites
Following an inspection of all entry points and any areas where dry wood may be present, Atek Pest Management, Inc. formulates a planned approach that may involves chemical applications to act as a barrier between the termite colony and the wood of your building or structure. Soil trenching in and around the foundation combined with specialized injections are among the various pest control methods customized precisely for properties with termite infestations in Silver Spring.
