Termite Control

Termite Control  in Beaufort, SC

Proven, Effective Termite Protection in The LowCountry of South Carolina

You may not be aware of it, but a natural disaster is always lurking just around the corner from your home in the form of termites. In fact, in our area, it’s not a matter of “if” termites are going to attack, but a matter of “when.”

We often find that homeowners are not fully aware of the risk that termites pose to their homes. The truth is that termites do more damage every year than fires, hurricanes, and earthquakes combined. Since termite damage is not covered by a homeowner’s insurance policy, you may not even be able to afford repairing your home after a termite infestation. This is why it’s so important to seek out support for termite control in Ridgeland as soon as you become aware of a termite problem.

call our Beaufort office at (843) 632-5645 or our Ridgeland office at (843) 418-9130 if you are suffering from an attack of termites in the LowCountry of South Carolina.

What Are the First Signs of Termites?

  • Mud tubes along walls or the foundation of your home
  • Discolored or dropping drywall
  • Visible swarms of winged termites near windows and doors
  • Damage under wallpaper and paint

The Use of Termidor as a Powerful Treatment for Termite Invasions

There are many newly developed methods of getting rid of termites at your home. One of the best products on the market is BASF’s Termidor® treatment. This liquid termiticide has repeatedly demonstrated itself to be extremely effective at preventing termite destruction. 

This means that you can have the relief of the best termite protection at your residence, not just for a season or two, but for good. Termidor® is effective against Eastern Subterranean and Formosan termites, even in the most challenging locations, climates, and environments.

Sentricon Colony Elimination System

In addition to getting rid of your current termite infestation, you will also want to keep future generations from attempting to return. This is why baiting methods are very effective, since they can nip developing termite colonies in the bud, long before new populations can begin attacking your home. The Dow AgriScience’s Sentricon Colony Elimination System is the leader in termite baiting systems. 

The stations are placed and buried a set distance apart around the home. Then, trained termite technicians will monitor these baiting stations on a regular basis to make sure that any new termite colony dies quickly before it can gain a stronghold near your property.

Making Your Property Less Inviting

While termites live in the soil, they are attracted to wood and moisture. In many cases, a termite invasion happens because certain conditions exist on a property. By maintaining various aspects around your house, you can make your property less inviting for termites and ensure your treatments last as long as possible. 

The best prevention techniques to keep termites at bay include:

  • Fixing leaky faucets, water hoses and connections, and pipes along the foundation wall
  • Repairing roof leaks and repairing or replacing leaky gutters and downspouts
  • Repairing all rotten wood, door jams, windows, steps, and chimneys
  • Keeping gutters free of leaves and making sure downspouts take rainwater away from the foundation
  • Ensuring sprinkler systems do not spray onto siding and foundation walls
  • Grading the soil around foundation so that water flows away from your home
  • Avoiding direct wood-to-ground contact unless the wood has been pressure zone
  • Removing all wood debris from the soil in a crawl space
  • Making sure that firewood is never stacked against the house

While all these techniques are good ways to help stop termites from being attracted to your property, they are not fool-proof methods of total termite prevention. Once termites have invaded your home, it is time to reach out to professionals like our technicians at Old South Exterminators.
