How to Prevent Termites in Everett

Want to know how to prevent termites in Everett? We have the information you need to protect your most valuable possessions from a termite infestation.

Preventing Termites Starts with Home Construction

Concrete foundations are better than wood, to prevent a termite infestation. However, if you must have a wooden foundation, then keep it at least six inches from the ground. Because it’s important to allow ventilation between soil and wood.

If Your Home is Already Constructed, Then There’s Still Hope

Whenever you are buying a home, consult with Classic Insulation & Pest Control first. We’ll inspect your prospective home, so you can negotiate both treatment and repairs during your purchasing process. Second, schedule on-going inspections to occur every three years. Because you’ll be able to stop or prevent an infestation before it’s too late. Next, you’ll need to schedule ongoing preventative treatments to occur quarterly. Especially if you’ve previously suffered from a termite infestation. Finally, it’s important to understand land development displaces termites. Whenever this happens, they find nearby buildings to both occupy and destroy.

How to Prevent Termites Before They Show Up

Pestworld shares termite prevention tips.

Either eliminate or reduce moisture in and around your home.
Keep firewood at least 20 feet away from your home.
Repair not only leaky faucets but also any other leaking pipes, either in or around your home.
Make sure to also repair any rotting home materials. For instance, rotting shingles.
Replace both damaged and worn weather stripping, plus loose mortar around basement foundations and windows.
Clean not only your gutters but also spouts, to keep your home’s foundation as dry as possible. Divert water away from your foundation.
Routinely inspect your home’s foundation for signs of mud tubes. Also, look for both bubbling paint and hollow wood.
Keep a close eye on all your exterior wood, so you can notice any signs of change. Then, report them to your pest control professional during routine maintenance.
Keep mulch and soil two feet away from your home’s foundation.
Since wood-boring insect damage is not covered by insurance policies, schedule regular inspections.

According to the National Pest Management Association, termites cause an estimated $5 billion in damage to structures in the United States each year. Luckily, pest control treatments can help get rid of termites. There are also preventative treatments to help avoid dealing with the damage they cause in the first place. It’s important to get regular termite inspections every 3 years and preventative treatments every quarter … or as advised by your pest control professional for your specific situation

You need pest control because without it, your home and family are at risk. Pests can carry bacteria and expose your family to harmful diseases. Uncontrolled pests also can cause costly damage to your property. Pests do not simply go away on their own. You must take the proper steps to get rid of them. You should be in control, not those unwanted pests. Pest control is all about regaining that power and peace of mind.

Depending on the type of pest infestation, left untreated could cost up to thousands of dollars in damage to your home.

Some methods of pest control attract bugs into traps using bait. And sometimes you’ll start noticing more bugs as pest control treatments start working. These are not new bugs coming into your home. They’re bugs that have been in your home all along, but now they’re dying or trying to find new places to live. Talk to your pest control professional if you’re noticing more live bugs once you’ve started treatment, because something may have been missed or just not be quite right.

No, all pest control companies are not the same. Not everyone holds themselves to the high standards that we do here at Classic Pest Control. What makes us different from others is our attention to detail, our knowledgeable staff, our quality service, our honesty, integrity, and professionalism. We’re proud to have been the recipient of the Angi Super Service Award for 11 consecutive years. Not all pest control companies can say the same. We are veteran owned and operated, and this is a family business. Our family cares about your family.

Sometimes you see more bugs after pest control treatments. And you may question if the treatment is actually working because of this. Don’t worry. The extra activity actually is a sign that the treatment IS working. Not all pest control methods kill bugs on contact. But once the bugs have been disrupted by the treatment, they will become more active while they try to find a safer place. Once they either move out or die, you’ll stop seeing them. If you continue to see more live bugs once you’ve started treatment, be sure to notify your pest control company because something may have been missed or just not be quite right. Technicians are human, after all, and if there’s a problem, we want to fix it for you. At least, that’s our policy here at Classic Pest Control! We take care of problems, and we do it quickly.

The number of hours you need to stay out of your home after spraying for bugs depends on the pesticides and chemicals used. Sometimes this is two to four hours. Sometimes it’s up to 24 hours or more. If you or your family members have any underlying conditions that make you more sensitive to the pesticides and chemicals used, these time frames may be extended. This is absolutely a question you must ask your pest control provider. We recommend having this discussion when you schedule the service so that you’re fully prepared when the technician arrives. You should feel comfortable asking this question of any staff member who answers the phone or any technician who arrives at your home. At Classic Pest Control, we have a knowledgeable staff that you can trust with all of your questions.

The determination of how often you should do pest control in your home also depends on the treatment methods you’re using and the severity of your pest infestation. You may need treatments more often as you’re initially treating the problem. You may need pest control visits less often if your treatment methods are longer lasting. The goal is that your home is always protected. Your pest control provider can help you create a treatment schedule to keep your home and family safe from pests based on all of the particulars of your situation. Here at Classic Pest Control, our philosophy is that we’re a service-based business, not a sales-based business. That means we work with you to provide what you need, not what we want you to buy. We believe you deserve that respect. So how often you should do pest control in your home, is not a one-size-fits-all answer. It’s unique and specific to you.
