Termite Control: Questions and Answers for Homeowners
Termites date back all the way to the era of dinosaurs and have referred to as the “silent destroyers” because of their ability to chew through wood and other hard materials. Each year homeowners accrue over $5 billion in termite damages— costs that aren’t covered in home insurance policies. This is why termite protection is extremely important to the longevity of your home.
So, how will you know if your home is infested?
Finding winged termites indoors is almost always a sign of termite infestation that needs to be addressed immediately. These guys are often seen around doors or windows because they are attracted to light. Be sure not to confuse termites with ants as they look pretty similar but have some key differences. Termites have wings that are the same size and a uniformly thickened waist.
Another common finding when termites are present are mud tubes. These tunnels are used by the termites for shelter to get from their underground colonies to another structure. To see if these tunnels are active, you can break one open and see if there are little white worker termites. If a tunnel is inactive it doesn’t necessarily mean that there are no termites present it just means that they may have moved on to another area.
Can I treat my home for termites?
It’s best not to treat your home for termites and leave it up to the professionals. Getting rid of termites is a special skill that takes a lot of training and correct equipment. It also requires a knowledge of construction in order to be able to seek out where the termites originated from and where they plan on going in the future. It also requires some heavy machinery and sometimes upwards of hundreds of gallons of termite pesticide. Acting quickly to address termites in your home is extremely important to stop further damage to your home, this is not something you can put off to deal with later.
How long will a termite treatment last?
Most termite pesticide treatments last up to 5 years after a home infestation is cleared out. However, ongoing termite control will be important to prevent termites from ever entering your home. Quarterly to yearly inspections will be included with a termite control treatment from West Termite, Pest and Lawn to ensure your home is safe from these damage causing termites.
Backyard Mosquito Control – Enjoy Your Home!
Mosquitos are the number one cause of people not being able to enjoy their yard. Sometimes these guys make it almost impossible to step outside and enjoy grilling, gardening, or simply just playing with your kids. Mosquitoes are a major problem in warm weather when it’s prime time for breeding. If you don’t want to have to lather up in repellents that make you smell awful, you will need to find other mosquito control avenues. One way to have a little control over the mosquito population in your yard is to make sure there is no standing water. Mosquitoes breed in standing water and this includes the following areas:
- Pet dishes
- Old tires
- Drainage ditches
- Leaking water from a water hose
Removing these areas from mosquitoes to breed is the first step to making your lawn mosquito free. Making sure mosquitoes don’t hang around your lawn is important because not only are they a nuisance in general but some of them also carry diseases to humans and pets.
Don’t wait until mosquitoes actually become a problem in your yard. Most people believe that the summer season is when you start protecting your lawn from mosquitoes when in reality mosquito season really starts when the temperature hits 50°F or warmer. Instead of waiting to take mosquito control efforts when you start getting bit, you should truly start preparing right when the winter season is over. However, if it’s already spring/summer and you still haven’t taken the proper precautions, call us today and we can perform an entire mosquito control treatment on your lawn. This includes finding the breeding spots and attacking them when they live and breed as well as professional treatment of all affected areas, including your shrubs, yard, and more.
Why Should I Hire a Pest Control Company?
Hiring a pest control company can save you from a lot of headaches but there are even more reasons to hire a pest control company instead of trying to tackle it all on your own.
Pests can carry harmful diseases that have the potential to expose you and your family to illnesses.

When hiring West Termite, Pest, and Lawn, you can rest assured that the pesticides we use are more family friendly and dog friendly.
Some pests are completely resistant when it comes to pesticides. Instead of forking away money towards expensive pesticides, let the professionals handle it. Our technicians have ongoing training to make sure they are up-to-date on all things pest related, this includes which pests are resistant to certain pesticides.
