Termites Are A Year-Round Threat For Florida Homeowners

In Florida, termites swarm during the spring. However, they are a year-round threat. If you see what appears to be flying ants (often winged termites) or mud tubes (literal tubes of mud) on your foundation or in the garage, there is a good chance you are dealing with termites, and you should seek treatment options immediately. Preventative treatment options will give you the best chance to avoid termite damage or at least stop it before it gets worse.

At HomeShield Pest Control, our top priority is keeping your home or business free from pest infestations throughout the year, and that includes termites and other wood-destroying organisms. That's why, as part of our regular pest control service, we also offer termite inspections, termite control treatment services, and pre-construction services. Call us today to control or protect against termite infestations in Florida.

Our Florida Termite Control Service

Termites are one of the most destructive types of pests home, and business owners have to deal with. They move into our homes and businesses without our knowledge and work day and night for months or even years, feeding on and destroying the wood within. Though they are tiny in size, you can believe the hype that comes with these pests; they are responsible for causing billions of dollars in damages across the country each year!

The best way to keep these insects out of your structure is to:

  • Be vigilant for winged termites and mud tubes.
  • Schedule annual inspections.
  • Have an annual pest control plan or service that protects your Florida home or business from infestation.

Luckily, HomeShield Pest Control can help! We provide free annual termite inspections with our pest control service and offer termite control treatment plans for homes and businesses already infested in Florida and the surrounding areas. Call us today to control or protect against termite infestation.

Pre-Construction Termite Treatments From HomeShield Pest Control

The only thing worse than discovering termites is how long the infestation has been allowed to grow before discovering them. It's usually only when you're trying to buy or sell a home or when catastrophic damage has occurred you find termites are in your home. Because homeowners' insurance seldom covers termite damage, it leaves the property owner on the hook for repair costs.

Pre-construction treatments from HomeShield Pest Control can start off your new construction on the right foot. Eliminate active termites on your property while creating a protective barrier around it for the future and removing many conducive conditions that attract them in the first place. Contact us for more information about how our pre-construction treatments can termite-proof your new property.

Termites aren't pests that directly threaten people but are certainly dangerous to our structures. These tiny insects can cause major damage to wooden structures because of their large colonies, ability to work together, and strong chewing mouthparts. The termite's primary food source is cellulose. When they live outside, they feed on fallen trees, tree stumps, leaf litter, and other sources of wood and organic debris. However, inside, they feed on and destroy our home's structural wood, wood trim, roof rafters, wooden furniture, and antiques.
