TENT PREPARATION

for Tent Fumigation - When in Doubt, Take it Out:

In addition to crawling and flying insects that we tend to see, termite control is another facet of our business. Termites often go unseen and never thought about until it is too late. Once damage is found then it becomes a priority. Statistics from FL State University show that in Florida there are an average of 2.8 termite colonies within 20 feet of every home. This statistic is supported in that more homes are damaged every year by termites than by house fires.

A-1-Pro Services offer complete prevention for new construction and for those of you who already have an infestation; we can treat to eliminate them from your structure. We are an authorized applicator for Termidor which we believe to be absolutely the best termite defense available today. If desired, we can use eco-friendly boracare system for treatment of structural wood.

Homeowners rarely realize termites are causing damage to their house until the cellulose-hungry insects have permanently damaged the structure. This damage may be a surprise because termites are cryptobiotic, meaning their activities are hidden from view. Termites’ cryptobiotic behavior contributes to their success in invading human structures.

Termites can consume the inside of a 2" x 4" piece of framing wood, but still keep the outside of the wood surface intact. Most homeowners have no idea that termites have infested their house unless they break through the surface of an infested piece of wood or they see other signs of termite damage, such as a swarm.

 

 

While termite colonies are extremely difficult to see, there are several signs of termite infestations that every homeowner should know.


 

 



Drywood Termites:

Termites are social insects, pictures shows galleries and fecal-pellets, Vikane gas with tent fumigation will penetrate all galleries and eradicate all colonies with no regard to colony location.  Every inch of home is treated wether it's painted or not goes throughout galleries.

 

 

 

 


Mud Tubes:


Subterranean termites need moisture to survive, which means they rely on their soil habitat for the moisture they need. When termites travel above ground, they have to take the soil with them to protect themselves from drying out. Subterranean termites build mud tubes above ground so termite workers can travel inside the protected structure when foraging between the infested wood and their nest. The tubes may be easy to spot when they extend over concrete foundations and other exposed surfaces. However, the tubes are much less visible when they run along cracks in the foundation or behind siding and baseboards.
Wood Damage:

Subterranean termites only like to eat soft spring wood fiber, which means they will eat along the wood grain, rather than across it. Subterranean termite damage is very easy to identify because the damaged wood will only have the grain left behind. Since subterranean termites carry soil with them, the spaces between the wood grains are typically packed with mud. Both drywood and subterranean galleries (small rooms inside the wood connected by tunnels) can be detected by tapping a piece of wood every few inches with the handle of a screwdriver. The damaged wood will sound hollow, and the screwdriver may even break through the wood into the galleries.
