Termite Treatment Methods

There are a number of termite treatment methods available, and Termite Control Arizona offers a variety of solutions. One method we use is to bait the termites using a substance such as cardboard that has been soaked in a pesticide. The termites are attracted to the bait and return the poison to the rest of their colony. We also use chemical sprays that are recommended safe and effctive. They are not harmful to humans or pets, but you may notice a slight odor. For more severe termite infestions fumigation may be necessary. This is done by completely covering your structure in a tent to treat it with very powerful chemicals that will erradicate all termites and pests. During the fumigation process, all occupants and pets will need to vacate the property until it has been completed and the tent is removed. Our termite control experts will be able to determine the most effective termite treatment for your property.
