Termite Control in El Paso

Imagine this: you buy the house of your dreams, the one where you and your spouse plan to raise your future children, and just months after moving in, you have to evacuate because of a termite infestation. Termites may be small, but they can cause great damage to houses and commercial buildings. It’s important to take the steps necessary to prevent and control an infestation. If you’re in the El Paso area, Brants Pest Control can help with termite control.

What are Termites?

Termites are small insects that feed mostly on dead plants like wood. That is why they can be detrimental to your home or business. Just like many other pests such as roaches and mosquitoes, termites are insects and act as so. Normally, termites do not travel alone and go through quick reproduction cycles once they’ve found a suitable place to mate–which is oftentimes inside the infrastructure of your home. From there, controlling an infestation can be difficult.

Once inside the infrastructure, termites can cause serious damage. Termites begin by feeding on the main infrastructure. When the ample wood is gone, they begin feeding on cabinets, floors, ceilings, and wooden furniture. Since the damage begins within the home, it’s sometimes hard to find an infestation. We recommend once you find one bug to call a pest control company right away. Handling it on your own could lead to worse damage, and since your home is already in need of repairs, your best bet is to call a professional.

What Happens When You Don’t Get Termite Control

Just because you don’t see the infestation doesn’t mean it’s not there. If a termite infestation is left untreated, the termites can cause serious damage to your home–serious enough that you may need to permanently evacuate it. After a certain point, termite damage repair can be incredibly costly to repair and many times, the house is left beyond repair. It’s important to hire someone to take care of the infestation at the first signs of one. That’s where we come in.

El Paso’s Best Termite Control

To control termites, we do a number of things. We’ll drill small holes into the infrastructure to insert chemicals designed to kill the termites. We drill holes under the slabs with a slab injector. This method works when the building is surrounded by concrete, and we drill the holes into the slabs. If there’s dirt or grass, we’ll create trenches to insert the chemical. Inside the building, we use a foam solution which we insert into the plumbing foundation. This stops the issue from within. Call us today for more information!
