Drywood Termites

  Termite Control St. Petersburg

There are three main types of wood-destroying organisms that can be found in a structure. They include Drywood Termites, Subterranean Termites and Wood-Decaying Fungi. Drywood Termites are extremely common throughout the south and can be detected by finding small “coffee grain” like pellets that have fallen out of small cracks and crevices throughout a structure. These pellets can also come out of small holes in an area of the home caused by an active Drywood Termite infestation. However, if you have ever had a Drywood Termite swarm, this is something you won’t forget. You will find termite bodies and hundreds of wings around the house often on window-sills and doorways because termites will swarm to the light. The most effective treatment to eliminate all of the Drywood Termites in a single treatment is Tent Fumigation. In this process, Vikane Gas is used to eliminate all of the Drywood Termites and any other living pest throughout the structure. Vikane Gas has been used to eliminate Drywood Termites for over 50 years and does not leave any residue. Exterm-A-Tech’s Termite Inspectors are trained to educate you on this process so you fully understand the preparation and process of fumigation (Click here for Fumigation Prep Instructions). As the homeowner, there are certain things that you will need to do to prepare your home inside and out. However, we can walk you through this process so you are fully informed and not overwhelmed.

  Termite Tenting Company Pinellas

Once we have tented a structure, it is under warranty for one year. After one year, you can choose to renew your agreement up to four (4) additional years along with an annual renewal fee. Along with your annual renewal fee, we offer a full inspection of the previously treated structure. If, while under contract, active Drywood Termites are present, Exterm-A-Tech will re-tent the originally fumigated structure. Very few companies, if any, offer a re-tent warranty. Most companies offer spot treatment only if Drywood Termites re-infest the structure. This is one of the features that make Exterm-A-Tech stand out from other termite treatment companies. Be careful that while under a Drywood Termite warranty you don’t re-infest your home by bringing in an infested piece of furniture or new kitchen cabinetry that is infested, this can void your warranty. Exterm-A-Tech also offers article fumigation treated in our fumigation chamber. This is an inexpensive way to avoid re-infesting your home.


Subterranean Termites

  Termites St. Petersburg

The second type of termite is the Subterranean Termite. This is the most destructive termite. If undetected or untreated, the Subterranean Termite can eat through walls, baseboards, flooring and other parts of your home very quickly. These termites are typically detected by mud tunnels and damage throughout a structure. Subterranean termites come from underground and use mud tunnels to travel from the ground up into a structure. Exterm-A-Tech’s inspectors are trained to recognize this type of damage and activity and will provide pictures of their findings so you too can see what is going on in your attic or crawl space.

  Termite Damage

Exterm-A-Tech recommends the Sentricon Colony Elimination System to detect and eliminate Subterranean Termites. We have used the Sentricon system for over seventeen (17) years and have 100% success rate. Sentricon is a non-intrusive treatment. Liquid chemical applications requires drilling holes into the foundation and injecting hundreds of gallons of poisonous termicide in and around your home. The Sentricon System is installed around the perimeter of a structure and is monitored on a quarterly basis by one of our trained Sentricon Technicians. The stations are placed in the ground just outside the perimeter walls of your home every 8 – 10 feet apart. We will install the newest bait developed by Dow Agro Sciences called Always Active HD bait.

Always Active bait is highly durable and dense bait that can last up to 5 – 6 years in the ground around your home. Once the bait breaks down or is eaten we will install new bait at no additional cost to you. The more “grungy” the bait becomes the more attractive and soluble it is to the Subterranean Termites. Once a colony or colonies of Subterranean Termites has consumed the bait and is eliminated, the system continue to act like an “alarm” system which is monitored by our technician throughout the year and baited as termite activity is present. The cost for this program includes a one-time install fee and an annual renewal fee for as long as you want to maintain the system.

  Termite Treatments

Even when an active Subterranean Termite colony is not present this system is still working for you. If you are looking for an environmentally friendly safe treatment Sentricon Colony Elimination System is your best choice and is the winner of the Green Chemistry Award.

We are so sure that the Sentricon Colony Elimination system is the right choice for your home that we provide a damage protection bond for all Sentricon customers. So call us today because we want to be your authorized service provider.



Wood Decaying Fungi

  Wood Decaying Fungus

The third type of wood destroying organism is Wood-Decaying Fungi also known as WDF. WDF is caused by water damage, most likely from a leak in the roof, gutters, plumbing leaks, leaking windows and doors, cracks in exterior surfaces and poor drainage from exterior grading. Wood Decaying Fungi can cause the wood to deteriorate and can be a desirable feeding area for termites if not treated or repaired. Exterm-A-Tech’s inspectors are trained to recognize these conditions and can recommend proper remediation techniques to correct these conditions.
