Pests We Treat Photo Album: Exterminating the Termites in the Garage in Howell, NJ
We recently treated a home in Howell, NJ for termites.
Mud Tubes in the Garage
During our inspection, we found termite mud tubes coming out of the expansion joints in the garage. For treatment, we drilled into the concrete in the garage, since termites live beneath the soil, and then injected a liquid termiticide.
Go About Their Business
This product will bind to the treated area and create a protective zone that the termites can't detect. They will come in contact with the termiticide as they go about their normal routines and transfer it throughout their colony. In a short amount of time, the termites are exterminated. Once we finished, we plugged and filled each drill hole we made.
Next Comes Sentricon®
Next, we drilled around the garage and the home and installed Sentricon® termite bait stations.
The Colony is Exterminated
When the termites come in contact with the Sentricon® bait system, they eat the cellulose material, unknowingly consuming an insect growth inhibitor. The termites then go on to share this "food" with their colony members. The growth inhibitor then takes over and prevents the termites from being able to molt. If they cannot molt, then the colony is eliminated. Now the home is protected from termites for many years to come!
