Termite Control OptionsThe two main types of Villa Rica termite control treatments for existing homes are traditional liquid treatments using Termidor or Premise and termite baiting systems such as Advance Termite Bait System, both of which are offered by AEL Pest Solutions and customized to fit your property. Educating you on your choices and working with you on a customized plan of action that best suits your individual needs is the primary role of your AEL Pest Solutions professional. We tailor every service program around your specific needs. Your family lifestyle and home environment is our first order of business.
Non-Repellent Liquid TreatmentNon-repellent chemicals, the newest liquid barrier chemical treatments, are designed to be totally non-repellent to subterranean termites. This non-repellency factor is a great attribute in subterranean termite control. Fipronyl, registered as Termidor, is an example of a non-repellent chemical. The termites are not repelled and cannot even sense that this chemical is present.
AEL Pest makes termite control contagiousTermidor is made from a revolutionary new non-repellent or “undetectable” chemical technology treatment. That means termites cannot see, smell, taste or avoid Termidor. Instead they contact, ingest, and share it with their nestmates. This is in sharp contrast to older liquid termite controls, which rely on repellent barriers that termites can find breaks in or avoid completely.
The “Transfer Effect”Termites that contact Termidor transfer it directly to every other termite they touch, which defines this unique process called the “Transfer Effect.” And because Termidor is engineered to be slow-acting, termites have ample time to spread it throughout their entire termite colony. Your Villa Rica termite control liquid treatments require annual inspections of the structure to ensure continued protection and are renewable for ten (10) years.
Termite Bait SystemTermite bait systems are by far the most environmentally friendly method of application. A number of termite bait stations are installed around your home. These bait stations consist of a plastic housing, wood monitoring devices at the bottom of the station, and a pesticide-free inspection cartridge containing compressed cellulose. There is no termiticide in these bait stations unless termite activity is observed in or near the bait station. When termites are found, the inspection cartridge is replaced with a bait cartridge containing the active ingredient. Quarterly station inspections are required and the service is renewable annually or quarterly. AEL Pest Solutions uses the Advance Termite Bait System, which features:
- Protection that is easy on the environment and designed with your family in mind. Uses grams instead of many gallons.
- Less disruptive to your home and lifestyle. No drilling, trenching, or scheduling hassles.
- Lifetime transferable Damage Warranty.
Combination MethodsIn most cases, if you choose to have your Villa Rica termite control Advance Termite Bait System installed, and you also have an active termite infestation, we will perform a combination of liquid treatment and termite bait system installation. We will perform a spot or a partial liquid treatment directed at the source of infestation in addition to installing the termite bait system.
Are They Ants or Termites?When it comes to Villa Rica termite control, our experts use several clues to help distinguish termites from ants, examine the insects’ wings, waist, and antennae. While both insects have two pairs of wings, termite wings are relatively equal in size. Ant wings tend to be longer in front and shorter in back. Ants also have a narrow, pinched waist, with three separate body parts. Termites’ waists are thicker and less distinct. In addition, ants’ antennae are elbowed, while termites’ are straight. Worker termites are soft and milky in color. They require a constant source of moisture to prevent dehydration. They travel through mud tubes that they build for protection from air and sunlight. Because they forage constantly for food, they often enter your home unseen and cause damage behind your walls. The best defense against termites is both a good inspection and an ongoing treatment program (whether curative or preventive).
