Did you Know?
A well-organized termite colony can have more than a million hungry workers consuming over 100 pounds of wood per year.
Homeowners spend an average of $3000 to repair termite damage.
There is a reason that homeowners insurance doesn't cover Termite damage. It is considered preventative home maintenance.
Termites are found in every state except Alaska & are very prevalent in warm humid regions.
Look for Flying Swarmers. Winged insects emerging from soil or wood is the easiest way to tell if termites are active nearby. You will sometimes see their wings left on the floor, around doors, and windowsills.
Look for damaged wood. Wood may appear "blistered" if it is dry. If wood is damp, tap or probe it with a screwdriver and see if there are any evidence of termites.
Look for mud tubes. They are commonly found on foundation walls or slabs, crawl space piers, attics and floor joists. To tell whether the termites that built these tubes are still around, scrape off a piece of the mud tube. If the pests later repair the tunnel or build a new one, an active colony is present.
Based on the layout of your home and the degree of termite infestation, Midwest will create a customized treatment plan tailored for your home.
We offer a revolutionary product called Sentricon® which uses a special bait that is always active. This treatment disrupts termite molting processes, stunting their growth, and is applied to areas at most risk around your home. Sentricon® provides continual protection without causing damage to your property.
After your treatment, your Midwest Specialist will implement a Continuous Termite Protection Plan to monitor and help protect your home for any future signs of termite activity. Your plan will also include a Re-treatment Program. That way, in the unlikely event that termites invade your home following our visit, we will return to the problem at no additional charge.
We also offer traditional forms of termite eradication involving injecting a non-repellent termiticide around the perimeter of your home.
