Pests We Treat Photo Album: Extensive Termite Damaged Found in Barnegat, NJ
As this homeowner in Barnegat, NJ was remodeling his living room, he noticed that some of the wood appeared to be damaged by termites.
Severe Termite Damage
Once we arrived and inspected the area, we confirmed the homeowners suspicion that the wooden beams were damaged by termites! As you can see, it's quite severe.
Termites are often called the silent destroyers of homes since subterranean insects do their damage hidden from plain view. It's easy for homeowners to miss the often subtle signs of a termite infestation until there has already been substantial damage to the home!
Since termites live beneath the soil, with the owners permission, we drilled into the flooring of the living room, as well as around the exterior home, and injected a liquid termiticide.
Termites Can't Detect Treatment
Next, we drilled into the walls of the living room and injected a foaming version of the termiticide. Both of these treatments bind to the treated areas and creates a protective zone that the termites can't detect.
Guarded Against Termites
They will then come in contact with the termiticide as they go about their normal routines and transfer it throughout their colony. The treatment then spreads like a virus throughout their colony and in a short amount of time, the termites are exterminated and the home is protected for years to come!
