More Information on Termite Service
Up until about ten years ago conventional treatments were the most effective way, other than spot treatments to service your termites. When chlordane was outlawed in 1989 the continuation of this treatment became limited. Chlordane was very effective and virtually had a shelf life of infinity. After chlordane was outlawed chemical manufactures had to find an alternative, and they failed miserably all throughout the nineties. After this fail, came the attempt to start the baiting and monitoring craze, in which I have explained below. In the late nineties the chemical companies finally got it right, they finally created a termiticide like Termidor, Premise and Phantom. Every other termiticide created before these were simply repellents and EPA’s restrictions wouldn’t allow them to stay around long. Termites can no longer detect the chemicals, and since the chemicals have to come in contact with the termites, rather than repel, this method is working quite nicely.
This is by far what All Pest recommends. The good news is when using new termiticides like Termidor, Phantom and Premise the non repellant treating options are endless. Unlike in the past or if you’re still using a repellent termiticide, you had to treat everywhere, drilling through slabs next to all plumbing, drilling all patios or separate pieces of concrete, and trenching and treating entire perimeters. When using non repellants and new foam technology, many times, based on your level of your attack, you can get by with less treatment. As well as choose to foam plumbing, above the slab, or in the wall versus drilling holes.
Let me explain. First do your research on Termidor so you understand the difference. Non-repellants allow for less treating, because when introduced to termites and the colony is eliminated, control is to be gained without treating everywhere. Don’t misunderstand me, the textbook answer is to treat all known entries, it is still the best option by far and you could choose to foam plumbing above the slabs versus drilling through the slab and all of your bases are covered. All I’m saying is not everybody can afford a Lexus when a Toyota will do.
At All Pest Solutions we are honest open and transparent, no scare tactics, no pushy salesman who are trying to close the deal, that is not how we do business. Truth is we have been using Termidor since our inception, and we have treated thousands of houses and I can count on one hand how many re-treats we have had where termites have come back. Our success rate is almost perfect regardless of which option the customer chose.
I get asked a lot which is it more effective, foaming above slab in the wall or drilling through the slab beside plumbing and pumping product in and around the plumbing? We at All Pest have been offering the foaming option for four years and not a single retreatment has been neccessary to date.
Most companies send a commission sales person to your house, unlike us, with All Pest Solutions the salesman and the treater are one in the same, chances are that a commission salesman does not even know how to treat. The reality is that the commission salesman is new and up-coming to the industry. Make no mistake there is no replacement for hands on knowledge and years of experience.
I, Wendell Daniel, owner and founder of All Pest Solutions make it a point to be at or to supervise every termite job. There is a difference and we are the difference. If a company’s cost or bid seems too good to be true, maybe it is. A major area where money saved is normally less product/chemical used. Product choice, product placement and proper amount used is what makes a treatment most effective, followed up by a company with a good history of treating success and a warranty for you to fall back on just in case; is as good as it gets. We at All Pest Solutions can provide all of this and more, why don’t you give us a call?
Termite treatment in Dallas, TX. Termite control in Dallas, TX can be a difficult task due to several factors including geographical location, and terrain. The trinity river that flow through the heart of Dallas create a wonderful environment for the termite population to flourish and increase in numbers substantially. We also take into account a great population in Collin County is rather close to large bodies of water, such as Lake Ray Hubbard, and Lake Lavon. These areas such as Wylie, Lavon, Rockwall, Rowlett, Garland, Allen,TX all contain the moisture needed for a subterranean termite colony to flourish. Even when the drought that we all know exists here in Dallas and the suburbs every summer takes hold, it does not effect the termites as you think it would. It drives them deeper into the ground, thus harder to treat for; another effect it has is to drive them into structures containing moist wood.
