Their meals stop here.
Termites don’t distinguish between valuable wooden structures and old dead trees. So they cause millions of dollars in damage each year as they stop at nothing to eat anything made of wood. Until we stop them.
Prevention is key in termite control.
Pre-treaments for New Construction
Before the slab is poured or framing begins, Tried and True treats the ground underneath with Termidor. This revolutionary, non-repellent termiticide can’t be smelled or tasted by termites, so they happily carry it back to their colonies where they all die.
After the pre-treatment, annual treatments from Tried and True prevent termites from establishing a colony in your home or business.*
*Individual commercial construction specifications often call for specific brands of termiticides.
How often do you treat for termite control?
There is an initial application performed, and monitored once per year. Soil disruption, migration, and addition of new soil are some of the conditions that may necessitate retreatment.
How long is my termite bond good for?
Lifetime renewability for qualifying homes (subject to inspection).
What is the difference in termite control and termite baiting?
Conventional methods include liquid termiticides injected into the ground. Termite bonding involves monitoring devices that are checked quarterly.
What is the difference in ants and termites, including the swarmers?
Ants do not "consume" the wood and cellulosic materials of the house. Ants prefer sugary liquids, meat, including some plants and fungi. ***Carpenter Ants are known to burrow into wet decaying wood, but are easily distinguishable from termites.*** Swarmer termites will have a long tubular body like a cigar, and two pair of equally sized, translucent wings. (The light goes through the wings, you can see through them) Winged ants will have segmented bodies just like normal ants. Often times during and after a swarm the wings will be found in window sills and the floor. Swarmers are embarking on a nuptual flight-- to seek out another swarmer from another colony to then break off their wings and mate below ground, forming a new colony.
