Termites cause more damage to homes and businesses than any other pest, costing homeowners nearly 5 billion dollars in property damage each year. Ignoring termites is not an option, because without the proper termite treatment, the problem will only get worse.
Termites feed on wood 24 hours a day, meaning a termite infestation can quickly turn into a major problem. Often you don't know you have termites until you see the damage signs, and by then it's too late. This makes termite control essential in protecting your most valuable asset – your home.
Trust Ehrlich Pest Control to protect your home from termites. As the local expert in termite control, we'll work to develop a customized plan for your needs — identifying what termites are affecting your home to recommend the best treatment option for you. Once we eliminate the termite infestation, we'll work to prevent termites from coming back.
Termite treatments can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors. The size of your property, where you live, the type of termite affecting your home, and the severity of the infestation all play a role in what type of treatment you will need.
Baiting stations are an unobtrusive solution that targets subterranean termites. Due to the nature of the treatment, it causes almost no inconvenience to homeowners and is environmentally-friendly. This treatment offers continual peace of mind, as the bait stations continue to prevent future termites from entering your home.
Bait stations are child and pet resistant, preventing easy access by anyone other than your Ehrlich Specialist. The active ingredient in the termite bait station eliminates termites by disrupting a molting process that occurs only in insects and closely-related organisms.
Liquid treatment application is a proactive and curative solution that involves applying treatment to your yard and the outer foundation of your home, protecting the perimeter of your property. As termites dig through towards your house, they come in contact with the liquid treatment. When they return to their colony, they transfer the treatment to other termites, thereby eliminating them.
Spot treatments are treatments that address localized termite concerns inside your home. Spot treatments include wood/slab applications or drilling treatments that focus on addressing specific threats to the wood structures of your house. While it is more invasive than bait stations or liquid treatment, it is less invasive than a house fumigation. Generally, this option is used for more urgent termite infestations that affect the inside of your home. Our termite specialists will perform periodic termite inspections and reinforce the protective treatment application as needed.
Home fumigation is the most invasive termite treatment, but is the most effective – particularly for drywood termites. Home fumigations are reserved for severe termite infestations, and require residents to leave during the fumigation process.
Fumigation is a complex activity with many variables that need to be considered for it to be carried out safely. It must be completed by licensed professionals with the required knowledge, skills and experience.

Termites are always looking for new sources of food, so if they discover a large amount of untreated wood in or around your house, they could move in the same day. Termites can even infest a house structure before construction is complete.
Termites can squeeze through very small cracks and holes. They will either enter your home using wood in contact with the ground or via “mud tunnels” from the ground through cracks in concrete or pipe penetrations through the slab or foundation walls.
