Protecting Philadelphia Properties From Termites

When termites get into your home, you’re unlikely to know that it happened. They’ll sneak in unnoticed, then go about their work of destroying your house. Termites eat away at wooden structures, and since they do so from the inside out, they often go unnoticed until the damage is severe. To protect your Philadelphia house from termite damage, you need the help of Pestmaster® Services.

Our Termite Control Process

Because they spend nearly all their time hidden, determining if you have an active termite infestation can be tricky.

Inspection

The trained professionals at Pestmaster® Services of Philadelphia can help with a thorough termite inspection. We know where to look and what to look for to identify termite activity. During this inspection, we’ll look in your basement or crawlspace, as well as around the exterior perimeter of your building for signs of termites.

Treatment

At Pestmaster® Services, we use the Trelona® ATBS Advance® Termite Baiting System. We’ll install these bait stations in the soil around the perimeter of your house every 15 feet. When a termite takes the bait, it brings it back to its colony and leaves a pheromone trail to the bait for the other termites to find. Over time, the termiticide spreads throughout the colony, eventually eliminating the entire thing.

Pre & Post-Construction Buildings
Pestmaster® Services of Philadelphia provides termite control services for both pre- and post-construction buildings. Our bait system comes with a one-year re-treatment warranty.

Wood-Destroying Insect Reports

We also offer a Wood-Destroying Insect Report service. If you are in the process of purchasing a home and need a WDIR filed with your lender before they’ll approve your loan, contact us. We’ll perform the inspection, write the report, and provide you and anyone who needs it with a copy.
