Fumigation Versus Spot Treatment

Home Fumigation vs. Spot Treatment

Did you know that a single Drywood Termite colony can have upwards of two million members? Each year, termites cause $5 billion in damage. These unsleeping pests often remain out of sight, as the outer surface is left intact while the inside is eaten away!

Unsure if it is termite damage? Look for termite droppings. While every situation is different, our trained professionals will inspect the following common termite entry points:

  • Foundation cracks and crevices
  • Spaces between concrete blocks and slab Joints
  • Eaves, doors, attics, and windows.

Termite Inspection

Commonly referred to as a termite inspection, bug nerds like ourselves know it as a WDO (Wood Destroying Organisms) Inspection. JP Miller & Sons Solutions termite experts will inspect a building’s structural integrity, and review other areas that are likely to attract termites, dry rot, fungus, and all the rest. Often, to the untrained eye, there’s no apparent indication that something is amiss. Our highly skilled technicians will carefully examine the structure, identifying wood destroying critters and their source of infestation.

Home Fumigation vs. Spot Treatment

  • Kills all termites, even hidden or inaccessible colonies
  • One treatment eliminates 100% of termites
  • No drilling necessary
  • Residents must prepare their home and leave it for a few days
  • Costs more than most spot treatments, but eliminates 100% of termites

Spot Treatment

  • Colonies must be found to be treated
  • Multiple treatments may be necessary if all termites are not eliminated
  • Requires drilling
  • Pest management professionals must inspect the home, and residents may have to leave until chemical dries
  • Cost per treatment is less than fumigation, but multiple services are often needed.

The Fumigation Process Explained in Four Easy Steps:

  1. Your home is carefully prepared and tented
  2. The tent is filled with fumigant
  3. Every single termite dies
  4. The tent is vented and your home is termite free. The gas completely exits your home and does not leave behind surface residue or living termites.

Termite Control

Education and inspection are the keys to protecting your property from termites. We recommend professional termite inspections every 2-3 years. Otherwise, termite control is more difficult, perhaps leaving your home under attack by termite infestations.

As a homeowner, here are a few ideas to help prevent termite infestations:

  • Stack all wood and wooden items several feet away from your building
  • For construction, use only pressure-treated wood which touches the ground
  • Fix leaking water fixtures and lines
  • Repair any downspouts, eaves, gables and shingles
  • Use yellow or pale amber outdoor bulbs, especially during the spring.
