Termite Protection In Mesquite, Texas

Effective termite protection begins with knowing how termites work. We’ve been in the termite control and termite protection business for years and have decades of combined experience. We know the proven methods of termite protection. Termites do more than $500 billion of damage a year. You read that right. $500 billion! Keep in mind that homeowner’s insurance doesn’t cover termite damage.

Here’s a little background knowledge on termites. They live in large colonies in the ground or wood. They typically live in dry wood or damp wood.

Termite Colonies

Termite colonies consist of three spheres: swarmers, workers, and soldiers. Fortunately, our termite control experts know how to control and prevent all three from getting to your home. Worker termites are white and don’t have wings. They spend their time building, fixing the nest, and feeding the other termites. The soldier termites are white but have big, dark heads. Soldiers don’t have wings either, and their primary function is to protect the colony. Lastly is the swarmers. They’re more of a yellow-to-brown color and have two sets of wings. Swarmers fly to a new location before losing their wings and starting a new colony.

What Are Termites?

Termites are small bugs, about the size of ants, that eat wood. If you see one, there are likely thousands more. But it’s tough for the average person to come across termites until it’s too late and they’ve been eating through your home, business’s walls, or foundation.

Termites can completely wreck the value of your home. If you detect them early enough, then you should be able to save your home. But we recommend getting a termite prevention plan to stop them from doing any damage at all to your home.

Termite Pest Control – FAQs

Termites have infested my home. What should I do?

Don’t freak out. While termites can cause extensive damage to a structure, it usually takes time. If your home has previously been treated for termites, check to see if the treatment is still under service warranty and if so, contact the company that first treated your home. If your home has never been treated for termites, it’s time to contact a professional local termite control company like Vinx Pest Control.

What kinds of treatments are available?

Treatment is a broad term that refers to the various methods and options available to a licensed pest controller. Gels, pastes, baits, granules, dusts, mist sprays, and water-based liquid sprays are all options. The type of application used is determined by the pest, the severity of the infestation, and the access to the problem area. In some cases, multiple types of treatment may be required.

Is there a variety of termites?

Yes, the United States has three types of termites: damp wood, dry wood, and subterranean. Dampwood termites, which prefer wet wood, are common in heavily forested areas of the country, whereas dry wood termites, which are much rarer in the United States, prefer extremely dry wood. Subterranean termites, which live primarily in the soil, are the most destructive species.

Why should I hire a termite inspection company?

Detecting termites is difficult if you don’t know what to look for, where to look, and lack experience. Pest technicians are trained in termite detection and have extensive experience inspecting various types of homes. Termites are often discovered after significant damage to cupboards, floorboards, or even wall/roof timbers in homes that have not had termite inspections.
