What Are My Options for Termite Treatment in Kittitas?  

July 12, 2019


As a homeowner, you’re probably insured for a lot of hazards that could damage your house, from fire to thunderstorms. But you might be ignoring another threat. There is something (or more accurately, some things) that work silently over a long time to destroy the very structure you’re living in.

As a homeowner, you’re probably insured for a lot of hazards that could damage your house, from fire to thunderstorms. But you might be ignoring another threat. There is something (or more accurately, some things) that work silently over a long time to destroy the very structure you’re living in.
 
We’re talking about termites. These tiny insects cost United States home and business owners more than $5 billion annually. While here in Kittitas and the rest of Central Washington, termites aren’t as common as they are in some other regions of the U.S., they can still do significant damage to your home or business property.
 

Signs that you’re facing a termite infestation include:

  • Mud tubes that run from the ground up your foundation or along your walls. Termites build these tubes so they can move around and carry food back to their underground colonies.
  • Swarms of termites that appear after a spring rainstorm. Western subterranean termites, the kind found in Washington, swarm during mating season.
  • Piles of insect wings that are visible on the ground in areas near window sills also indicate termites might be present.

What Should You Do

If you see signs of a termite infestation, Call Prosite Pest Control and ask for a free termite inspection. Our trained technicians will inspect your property to look for signs that termites are present and also conditions that can be attractive to them. We will then determine if there is any damage from termites.
 
After the inspection, the technician will create a customized treatment plan for your property. If termites are present or conditions that could attract these wood-damaging insects exist, we recommend using Termidor® HE to eliminate any existing colonies and to create a barrier to prevent future infestations.
 
Termidor is a liquid termiticide. Because termites can’t see it, smell it, or taste it, they can’t avoid it. Any termite that touches the insecticide carries the product back to the colony, where it’s transferred to other termites, resulting in the elimination of the entire colony.
 
To create a barrier around your home or commercial building, our technicians dig a very small trench around the foundation and inject the Termidor liquid into the soil. In addition to killing any current infestations, the insecticide provides a lasting barrier to prevent future groups of termites from feasting on the wood in your structure.

Prosite backs the Termidor treatment with a seven-year guarantee as long as you have us inspect your property annually.
 
If you are planning on building a new home or adding an addition to your property, we can provide termite pre-treatment for construction sites.
 
Termites shouldn’t be ignored, and there are no effective DIY treatments for this destructive pest. If you have any concerns about termites, no matter what you’ve heard about termites being rare in Central Washington, take advantage of Prosite’s free termite inspection. Call us today to set up a consultation.
