When renting, buying, or selling a home or business, banks and other financial institutions may require a wood-destroying organism (WDO) state report when considering a loan for a home or business. In these situations, reliable pest control companies charge a flat fee to conduct and process termite inspections for state reports. The cost varies depending on the location and the size of the property. The cost usually covers the pest control technicians’ time performing the inspection, plus compiling and submitting the report.
However; many people contact professional pest control companies as a proactive prevention measure or more often when they suspect termite activity is afoot in their homes and businesses. In either case, when you contact a reliable pest control company, such as Petri Pest Control Services, for an inspection, you’re doing so to get an estimate for the treatment of a current infestation or to enroll the prospect in a program to prevent infestations. Petri Pest Control Services does not charge potential customers to perform termite inspections. Contact us to schedule your free termite inspection!
New Building Termite Protection Plan
We know we're more than capable of handling any pests that show up, but we also know our customers would rather not have to deal with infestations. That's why we can help you take preventative measures beforehand, starting from when you construct a brand-new building. Together, we can help devise a pre-treatment termite plan using various strategies to protect your brand-new building. The pre-treatment plans include the base, supportive structures in and around the building, which will be much harder to access later.
When pre-treatment is instituted early on and maintained throughout the building process, it can help make these new buildings less susceptible to termites. That includes ensuring debris is removed and moisture penetration to prevent bugs from making homes within your facility.
Exterminate the Termite Problems
If an infestation is found in your home or building, our expert team of exterminators can help devise an effective termite treatment plan. Employing the two most common termite treatments we use liquid termiticides and termite bait stations.
When using liquid termiticides, the chemical is applied directly in the soil, creating a barrier between the termites in the ground and your home or building. The barrier created prevents any new termites from gaining entry and will prevent the existing termites in the walls from returning to the soil. When professionally applied, this method protects your buildings from termites for a minimum of five years.
Baiting stations are a mixture of appealing foods, like paper or cardboard, and slow-acting chemicals lethal to termites that attract and eliminate these pests. When installed in areas around the building, the termites will come in contact with the bait and bring it back to the colony where it will be shared. Once distributed, over time, the termites will be exposed and die off.
