Robstown 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. Pro-Tech Services pest control experts are experienced at identifying and ridding any Robstown 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 termites may be present, Pro-Tech Services 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 Robstown.

Quick Tips for Preventing a Termite Infestation:

  • Avoid letting moisture accumulate near the foundation of your property
  • Address excess humidity problems in crawl space areas
  • Do not store firewood and other wood products near the foundation of your home
  • Contact a Robstown pest control expert immediately if you suspect termites have established a colony on your property
  • Allow 6 inches of slab foundation to be exposed at all times
  • Have the property inspected every 6 months
