Your home shouldn’t be jeopardized by termites. Root Solutions utilizes integrated pest management.
This is a two-pronged approach. We first attempt to educate customers on the best practices to mitigate pest infestations. We aid in creating environments in which pests will not thrive and, in their effort for survival, will likely avoid them. In both nuisance and wood-destroying pests, we attempt to create barriers to keep the pest from reaching the home, rather than waiting until an infestation arises and we then need to perform curative treatments.
The second part is a corrective measure. Once the home has been targeted by pests, we are able to offer programs and treatments to remove and/or decrease pest populations. Although we do offer both methods of service, we would much rather identify what conditions on the property may permit infestations, advise and educate the client, and try to help prevent issues before they start.
The termite control methods vary depending on the type of pest you are dealing with. There are two types of termites; subterranean termites and above ground termites. Subterranean termites are usually the ones that cause damage to homes and businesses. They live underground in large colonies where they eat wood and cellulose. Above ground termites are usually found in dry areas and feed on dead organic matter. Both types of termites can be controlled using various techniques.
A professional exterminator should always be used when dealing with any kind of pests. A good exterminator will be able to determine what kind of pest you are dealing and then recommend the best treatment method. When choosing an exterminator, ask questions about their experience and credentials. Make sure they have a license from the state and carry insurance.
Preventing termites from entering your home is the best defense against their invasion.
Termites are insects that eat wood. They live in colonies, where they work together to build their nests. A colony may contain thousands of individuals, but only a few dozen workers at any time. Workers are sterile females that lay eggs and then die. Colonies reproduce rapidly, producing many generations per year.
