Jacksonville Termite Control
If you see any sign of termite damage, it is usually to the point where the destruction will cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars to repair. Instead of finding termite damage, contact the Jacksonville termite control experts at Apex Pest Control to verify the structural integrity of your home. Our trained termite specialists will determine if your home has fallen prey to termites and will recommend the best and safest form of treatment.
A home that has a termite infestation will typically have three to four termite colonies on the property. Each colony contains one million or more termites, and each termite eats two to three percent of its weight in cellulose per day. If your house contains the wood these colonies are eating, the damage can quickly escalate since termite queens lay an egg every 15 seconds. In other words, the ultimate solution is to be proactive in termite control: contact Apex Pest Control.
As newer construction worksites are more prone to these termites, certain treatments should be started early.
- Bora-Care®: Bora-Care® is a borate treatment that is soaked into wood during construction, which is an effective treatment for subterranean termites.
- Termidor®: Termidor® treatments are also used during the early stages of construction.
Jacksonville receives from 2.5” to 8” of rain every month. Termites depend on damp, humid weather for survival, and the climate along the Atlantic coast is ideal for termite invasions. While new homes are constructed with treated lumber, the older homes and businesses in Jacksonville may be more susceptible to termite damage. Apex’s crew of trained Jacksonville termite control professionals can check your home’s substructure to determine where and how much termite damage has occurred. If their findings are conclusive, Apex will work with you to quickly eradicate the termite mounds on your property, which are most likely subterranean and not nearly as interesting as the termite mounds you see in Africa on television, and protect your home for years to come.
Homes under construction benefit from Apex’s multi-focus termite plan. We treat the soil before construction begins, treat the wood once the walls and wiring are in place, and can even install PipelineTM, a unique pest control distribution system that allows our technicians to maintain a safe level of pesticides in your home by simply applying the product through a junction box located on your home’s exterior. Technicians no longer have to come inside and spray, and the treatment is easily applied even if homeowners are unable to be present for treatment.
