Houston Termite Control
Subterranean Termites Live In Colonies In the Soil
Colonies can range in size from 500,000 to 5,000,000.Termites feed on cellulose or wood materials. Some of their food source is found in the ground, like trees, but they will also feed on your home.They work 24 hours a day and only need 1164 of an inch to invade your home. The annual loss due to structural damage by termites is more then $2 billion! The potential danger of termite damage to unprotected buildings is greater than ever, not only because there are more termites every year but also because much of today's construction is in previously undeveloped areas - the natural habitat of termites.
Steps to Signature Plus Service (Termites)
Detection of termite activity
ABC will inspect your home for termites, termite damage, and foraging (mud) tubes. We will install monitoring stations around the perimeter of structures to serve as an early warning system. You buy a security alarm to protect your home or business from human invaders. With ABC, your home has a security system to warn it from termite invasion.
Treatment of termites
ABC will apply a liquid treatment zone in the area the termites are feeding. The materials that we use have both an ingestion and contact effect.Termites will unknowingly pass through the material and become infected and will transfer the material to non-infected nestmates. Termites that have ingested the material can transfer the material to nestmates by sharing their food before they die.
ABC will return quarterly to inspect the monitoring stations and the structure to assure the termites are gone and if "new" termite intruders are detected our process begins again. An important feature is that, the Signature Plus Service (Termites) is an ongoing process. Even after the termites are gone, the ABC System stays on duty to help find a new colony that may invade your property.
The ABC Promise... The warranty we provide states that if termites come back...We'll be back.
