Can Termites Return After Treatment?


Unfortunately, they can. Termite treatment is very involved and requires ongoing maintenance to keep these pests out. Once your termite problem is fully treated, our termite control professionals will work to create a barrier around your home that will deter termites from returning. Activities such as digging or planting where this barrier exists can leave a gap for termites to re-enter your home or office, so it’s important to maintain an ongoing relationship with your pest control professional to ensure year-round protection.

How Did I Get Termites?


There are many ways a termite colony can get into your home or office. Subterranean termites will enter through door frames, decks or porches, or any other structure that has wood-to-ground contact. On the other hand, drywood termites will enter through any cracks or crevices in a building’s structure, which means they can enter at any level of your home or office.


Can I Prevent Termites?


There are several steps you can take to prevent termites from making your house their home. Be sure to keep any wood piles or mulch away from your foundation. It’s also smart to fix any moisture problems in your home, like leaky faucets or improper drainage.

How Do I Know if I Have Termites?


Be on the lookout for damaged or hollow-sounding wood, mud tubes around the ground or along your baseboards, blistered wood, or bubbling paint. Even if you don’t spot any signs of a termite infestation, it’s important to work with a pest control professional to conduct preventive maintenance.
