Termites Are Costly Pests To Have In Your Baton Rouge Home
In Louisiana’s climate, termites are active all year round. If you don’t protect your home against them, termites will likely become a problem in your house at some point. Since the damage they cause typically is not covered by homeowners’ insurance, if you end up with a termite infestation, getting rid of them and repairing the damage can be a costly endeavor. If you suspect you have a termite problem or wish to prevent one before it begins, Pelican Pest Control can help!
Our Termite Control Process
We’ll begin by performing a thorough inspection to determine if termites are active in your home. Termite activity takes place almost entirely within your walls, so it can be difficult to find signs of their presence. All of our pest professionals have the training needed to spot the subtle signs of a termite infestation that the untrained eye might miss.
We’ll inspect the entire interior of your house, looking in each room, closet, and even the attic. We’ll look for dead swarmer termites, bubbling paint, exit holes, and mud tubes. Outside, we’ll examine around the foundation of your home to check for mud tubes.
We offer two termite treatment options. Based on the findings of our inspection, we’ll discuss these options with you and help you choose the one that will work best for your particular situation.
The first option is the installation and maintenance of bait stations. We’ll place these bait stations within the ground every 10-12 feet all around the perimeter of your home. When termites take the bait, they bring it back to their colony, eventually eliminating the entire thing.
Our other termite treatment option is a liquid treatment. We’ll dig a trench around the entire perimeter of your home, apply a liquid treatment into the soil, then refill the trench. We’ll also drill holes into your slab and apply treatment within the holes before patching them back up. This treatment creates a barrier around your house. If termites pass through it, they’ll bring the termiticide back to their colony, again, eliminating the entire thing.
Both of our termite treatment methods include annual inspections. We’ll return each year to inspect your home for any signs of termite activity.
