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 its 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.
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.

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.
What is tent fumigation service, and when is it needed for termite treatment?
Tent fumigation, or “tenting”, is a highly effective solution for eliminating severe termite infestations. Preparation for fumigation can be extensive, requires thoughtful coordination, and follows strict safety procedures. Tenting a home for termites should always be done by a professional with proper certifications and licensing in order to be performed safely and effectively.
What rules does ABC follow with regards to safety when using fumigant gas for termite treatment?
Safety is our number one priority when treating your home. We adhere to strict guidelines set forth by the fumigant manufacturer as well as state and federal regulatory agencies. During all structural fumigations, ABC regularly monitors the fumigant levels within the structure and the air outside the structure for efficacy. We use specially designed equipment capable of detecting fumigant levels as low as 1 part per million (ppm). We employ aeration times far exceeding what is required by law and confirm 0 ppm clearance levels multiple times before allowing you and your family to return to your home. Additionally, we follow all manufacturer recommendations, including not fumigating homes with attics enclosed in polyurethane spray foam insulation (PSFI).
We care about our customers, and want them to be informed about products and safe handling practices. For more information about gas treatment and safety measures, visit:
