The technician that came this morning to do our first initial treatment was fantastic. Very professional and took the time to ask and answer our questions

What leads to termite infestations and how do termites damage my home?

Any pest in your home is a problem, but termites are more than just a nuisance. Termites actually eat the wood that frames your home, potentially reducing your home’s structural integrity. In fact, termites will consume almost any kind of cellulose. Wood, paper, burlap, cotton and cardboard are all likely to be in and around your house, and are all tasty treats for termites.

Since most termites require sources of water, a leaky spigot or garden hose, water that collects around your air conditioning condenser or even leaky plumbing can get their attention and further growth of the infestation. Unfortunately, termites can and often do infest any home, regardless of preventive measures a homeowner takes.

Termites cause billions of dollars in damage every year, and while damage may take some time to occur they absolutely must be taken care of by a pest care professional.

How can ABC Home & Commercial Services – Austin control my termite problem?

We follow a structured approach to stopping termites that has proven highly effective over time. At the same time, we recognize that every termite infestation is slightly different, and we tailor the details of our treatment to fit each home.

We start by identifying the type of termite responsible for the damage.  Then, we look for all the points where termites are attacking the home, including any you have found. For example, we will look for mud tubes coming up from the ground, dead termites around windows or live ones in areas where wood appears to be rotting. Next, we will recommend treatment, specifically designed for the type of termite attacking the structure. 

In the case of Subterranean termites, we normally apply a liquid treatment everywhere that we find the termites. We use materials that termites eat and take back to their nests. In the case of Drywood termites, we'll likely recommend fumigation as the best way to eradicate the problem. However, every case is evaluated upon it's on unique needs and homeowners are able to help decide the best solution for their home.  

Post-treatment, we perform regular inspections of the treated structure to confirm that the termite problem is under control.

Does ABC Home & Commercial Services stand behind the termite treatment?

We stand behind our work 100%. We perform a thorough and professional treatment to your home. If termites come back, we will treat your home again.

Depending on the level of protection that you choose at the time of the first treatment, we can also offer coverage to repair any damage that results from termite re-infestation. Our warranties are renewable for the life of your home and transferable if you sell your home.
