Many homeowners are not aware of how much damage termites can really cause. Termites cost homeowners more than $5 billion annually—this is more than all flood damage, fire damage and tornado damage combined. Even though termites do so much damage every year, they are not covered by homeowners' insurance; however, termites are among the most preventable of these disasters.

The most common termites in our area are the Eastern Subterranean termite and Formosan termite. Both termites are voracious wood-eaters and can quickly destroy the structural integrity of your home. Their colonies can include thousands of termites and there can be several colonies in an acre. They thrive in warm, humid climates, and may not be detected until significant damage has been done. Because of this, it is imperative to have preventative termite protection.

There are generally two choices for Eastern Subterranean termite and Formosan termite control: bait and liquid. Bait stations are designed to deter termites before they find a way into your home or office. The second option is liquid termiticides, which provide a protective barrier around the home.

There's an old saying in Florida: It's not a matter of if you'll have termites, but when. Even if you don't see signs of termites, a thorough, annual termite inspection in Tampa by a highly trained pest control professional is recommended.

Complete Termite Protection from Arrow

Arrow Environmental Services recommends the Sentricon® System with Always Active™ technology, an effective treatment option for eliminating termites at the source. Together with a liquid termiticide and our comprehensive written warranty (repair available with qualifying property), Arrow can provide the best termite treatment possible.

Sentricon starts working the moment we put it in the ground. Each Sentricon station contains Recruit® HD termite bait, a highly dense, highly durable cellulose that termites prefer – even over the wood in your home. Termites feed on the Recruit HD termite bait and share it with their nestmates, leading to the elimination of the colony. The Sentricon station can stay in the ground for years and actually becomes more attractive to termites over time and even better, doesn't pose harm to our environment. With continued service from Arrow, we will ensure that the Recruit HD bait is in the Sentricon stations killing any termites that come into contact with it.

To get started, we will place Sentricon bait stations in the soil around your home. It's a worry-free method for treating the problem without disrupting your family and there's no drilling in the floors or the foundation, no digging or trenching your landscape and no harsh chemical solutions injected in your yard. You also don't have to worry about scheduling hassles, as we just set it, having to inspect only once annually, and let Sentricon do the rest.

Eliminating Termites Through Fumigation

If our inspection shows that your home or business has drywood termites or other wood destroying organisms, fumigation is the best solution. Fumigation involves filling an enclosed area with gaseous pesticides that are poisonous to the termites. This process causes the termites to die immediately or soon after the pest control treatment is carried out. Certain types of termites may require additional separate treatments.

When fumigation is necessary, it is important to choose an experienced service provider who will take precautions to prevent certain materials in the structure from being contaminated by the product. The fumigation process must be carried out correctly and carefully so that the health of people and pets residing in or occupying your property are not compromised.

At Arrow Environmental Services, we make the wellbeing of our customers a priority during the termite fumigation process. With our decades of experience, you can depend on high-quality pest control services! Call our office at (800) 226-3139 and ask for a free quote.
