Don’t Let Termites Destroy Your Home
Because of our cold winters, a lot of people think that termites aren’t a problem in Connecticut. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. In fact, the only state where it’s consistently and severely cold enough to avoid termites altogether is Alaska. Here in Connecticut, it is entirely possible for your house to become infested by termites, and it’s entirely possible for it to happen without you knowing about it.
Termites in Manchester rarely come out in the open, and because the damage they cause to the wooden structures in your house is done inside the wooden structures, and it takes a long time for that damage to become obvious to homeowners. Usually, by the time you realize termites are in your house, the damage is already extensive. The good news is that you don’t have to wait to discover a termite infestation before you do something to protect your house against them. EcoChoice Termite & Pest Control offers several termite control solutions in Manchester to meet the needs of your home, whether you have an active infestation or not.
Termite Control From EcoChoice Termite & Pest Control
Our termite control service begins with a thorough inspection to look for signs of active termites. As trained professionals with years of experience, our technicians know where to look and are knowledgeable about the subtle signs termites leave behind that alert us to their presence.
Once we know if termites are already active in your house, we’ll recommend which of our three treatment methods will be the best fit for your home. We offer a liquid termite service, a bait service, and a monitoring service.
Liquid Termite Service
We use Termidor® HE for our liquid termite control service. The most trusted name in liquid termite treatments, Termidor® HE is applied in a shallow trench that we’ll dig around the perimeter of your house. Termites can’t detect Termidor®, so they’ll walk through it without realizing it and will then bring it back to their colony. This treatment effectively eliminates a termite colony in three months or less.
Our liquid termite service includes a one-year warranty with an annual renewal. We’ll complete a free termite inspection every year, and we’ll also install a termite monitoring system.
We use The Sentricon® System with Always Active™ for our bait service, the #1 termite baiting system in the US. We’ll install bait stations in the soil around your house at regular intervals. Termites prefer the bait in these stations over wood cellulose, so they’ll take it for themselves and give it to the other termites in the colony. The active ingredient works its way through the colony and eliminates the entire thing.
If you choose this termite control method, we’ll install the bait stations during our first service visit. We’ll then return every six months to inspect the bait stations and refill them if necessary.
Termite Monitoring Service
We also offer termite monitoring using TM-1 termite monitors from B&G. These monitors are easy to install and inspect, and they are a cost-effective way to identify a termite problem before it has a chance to grow.
Real Estate Inspections & Reports
In addition to our termite control services, we also offer real estate inspections and reports. If you are purchasing a home, your lender may require a real estate report for wood-destroying insects before approving your loan. Even if they don’t require it, having an inspection and report done is a wise decision for your own peace of mind. You’d hate to finalize the sale only to discover serious termite damage that wasn’t disclosed and isn’t covered by your homeowners’ insurance.
We will perform a detailed inspection of the property to look for any signs of termites, termite damage, or other wood destroying insect damage. After our inspection is complete, we’ll write up a full report to give to you and your lender.
