A FREE Terminix Termite Inspection is the first step to protecting your home from termites. During a termite inspection, a trained Terminix specialist will thoroughly inspect your home for any signs of termites and identify potential access points. They will work with you to keep your home termite-free and save you from treatments and damage repairs that can cost you thousands.
This treatment plan consists of a complete home fumigation (sometimes called “tenting” since the home is completely enveloped by specialized tarps).
Tenting is an elaborate process in which specialized tarps are placed over your home, joined together at rolled seams using heavy-duty clamps, and weighted at the bottom to create a seal. Fumigant is dispersed, penetrating every area of the home, as well as hard-to-treat areas.
You should expect to safely return to your home in two to three days. This will allow time for the fumigant to do its job and dissipate to safe levels.
Fumigation, also known as tenting, is one of the treatment options for dealing with active drywood termites.
Localized “spot” treatment controls only the drywood termite activity in the specific area and often involves drilling into infested areas.
Keep in mind that control methods for drywood termites do not control subterranean termites.
Tenting requires an experienced, licensed pest management company. It is the only method to ensure 100% control of drywood termites and some situations involving wood-boring beetles.
The procedure itself poses some risk during tenting while the fumigant is being contained. After the tarps are removed, however, the home is aired out and cleared, and no residue is left behind.
