Making a Case for Regular Termite Inspection
The key to saving your home from termite damage is early
detection. If you're noticing changes in the integrity of wood surfaces or
holes in structural wood, or stucco you're probably too late.
With more than 30 years as termite control experts, we
recommend the installation and inspection of the First-Line Termite Monitor
Stations. We will install 10-20 termite monitors in strategic places around the
perimeter of your home that need to be checked every three months. These
termite monitors allow us to gauge termite activity and initiate treatments as
We love our environment and our pets. Any treatment
initiated by Knight Pest Control is done so with environmental
conservation in mind. The products we use are selected on effectiveness and
safety to humans and pets and the environment. We offer treatments and programs
for prevention and early detection, termite colony elimination. For severe dry wood termite infestations, we
offer whole house tent fumigation.
Winged “flying” ants can often be misidentified as “swarming” termites.
There are some key differences:
- Antennae look like a string of beads
- Front and back wings are of equal size
- Broad waist
- Antennae are bent at an angle
- Front wings are larger than the back wings
- Restricted waist
Termites can account for several thousand dollars in damage
to a home or structure. While we do not perform the repair work, we do our part
by eradicating the cause of the damage. We will be more than happy to recommend
a professional licensed contractor if repairs are needed.
To protect the homeowner's investment, Knight Pest Control
carries liability insurance with 2 million dollars in coverage. We are happy to
report that in over 30 years in the termite control business, we have not made
a single claim for termite damage to our insurance carrier.
