Termites cost U.S. property owners more than $11 billion annually. Most of that cost is paid out by property owners in temperate climates and along coastlines.
This makes termite control in West Palm Beach essential. When it comes to protecting your West Palm Beach home from termites, there are two options. You can do it yourself, or you can put your trust in an experienced and educated termite control professional.
Here are a few reasons you should choose Native Pest Management.
The Environment Matters
We have the education and experience to know what level of response is required to meet the threat of termite infestations. This allows our termite control professionals to select pet safe and eco-friendly termite solutions that are appropriate to meet the threat with as little impact to the environment as possible.
All Termite Control Is Not Created Equal
Just because a business is licensed to deal with termites, doesn't mean they have the expertise to select the most effective termites control products. Some termite control options are better than others. Some are far better.
As an example, our on-staff experts have selected the Trelona® ATBS Advance Termite Baiting System. University research indicates that this termite bait system, developed by BASF Corporation, works faster than its Sentricon counterparts. When termites come to feed on your property, we want to give them as little time as possible to feed on your property (and do damage) as possible.
When it comes to soil treatments, we don't cut corners. While it is cheaper to select a termiticide that repels termites, we prefer to go with Termidor because of its transfer effect. Repellant termiticides discourage termites from entering a home, while products like Termidor and Dominion kill the colony completely.
Termite workers that pass through the Termidor product do not detect it. They pick it up on the outside of their bodies and transfer the active ingredient to other termites as they groom each other, which they do a lot. Slowly, the product works its way through the whole colony and the colony dies. So, rather than kill termites on contact and repelling them, the products we use secretly move through the attacking colony and eliminate it. At face value, you can see why this is the better option, but there is more to the story.
Do you know that worker termites are relentless? It's true. They keep coming and coming… and coming! Products that kill termites on contact can end up letting termite workers get through because workers find a path through. Over time, as the product wears out, these potential pathways increase in number and size.
Not only does Termidor stay active in the ground longer than repellent termiticides, all it takes is for a few termites to go through the wrong patch of ground and the entire colony is impacted. It's okay if there are a few pathways.
