Subterranean and Formosan Termite Protection and Treatments
In Florida, there are two groups of termites that require very different types of termite treatments.
The first group, Subterranean and Formosan termites have large colonies, as many as 250,000 – 500,000 individual, hungry termites and locate these colonies in the soil under and around your house. Termites are nature’s recyclers and send workers up to the surface looking for “dead” wood to recycle. They don’t know the difference between a fallen tree and the wood in your home and they can enter into your home to feed on the wood through a crack as small as 1/32 of an inch.
The best treatment for Subterranean and Formosan termites is a soil treatment with Termidor. While baits can be effective some of the time, a soil treatment with Termidor is the most effective treatment available.
There are many different termite control products available to termite control companies. Some are new, some have been around awhile. Some are expensive and some are inexpensive. But there is only one best product for eliminating and protecting against Subterranean and Formosan termites and that is Termidor. And while Termidor is more expensive than competing products, it is worth every penny.
