Termite Treatment in Frisco, TX & Surrounding Areas

Subterranean termites are some of the most destructive pests found in Texas households today. Although these tiny worm-like critters live in colonies underground, their diet consists of anything that contains wood fiber. Unfortunately, what this means for Texas homeowners is that these annoying pests may literally eat the wooden structure of their homes.

The Destructiveness of Subterranean Termites

termites 4There can be as many as two million termites in a subterranean termite colony, which typically consists of a king, queen, soldiers and workers. This can equate to a ton of damage if you have a termite problem this large. Furthermore, since subterranean termites live underground, it can be difficult to locate their colonies. 

Termites such as these can enter your home by penetrating the wood of your home's foundation or by crawling through cracks in the foundation. Once they gain entry to your home, they begin to attack the structure with a vengeance. In fact, if you have a heavy infestation, in just a year or two, the wood of your home could begin to crumble.

What is the Answer to Termites?

Here at Addison Pest Control, we can effectively rid your home and yard of subterranean termites by using what is known as the Sentricon System. This is a unique system that uses carefully placed bait stations containing lethal food for termites. As worker termites forage for food, they enter the stations and eat.

Since they do not die right away, they have time to take some of the food back to the colony for other members. After some time, they will all begin to die off. Typically, you will only need one treatment to rid your home of subterranean termites; however, in heavy infestations, you may need two.
