For Most People, Their Home is Their Largest Investment
Termites cause more damage to homes in the United States than fires and storms combined. Yet termite damage is not covered by homeowner insurance policies. That’s why requesting a free termite inspection is so important.
Termite colonies work 24 hours a day. THEY NEVER SLEEP !
Just one subterranean termite colony can contain thousands to millions of termites and they never sleep. The Queen may live up to 25 years (or longer) and lays eggs every single day. Studies have shown that we may have up to 5 colonies per acre here in Arkansas.
The workers forage continuously for food, carrying it back to the colony where it is shared. Termites will attack any product or material that contains or is made out of cellulose material or wood products. Even your pictures on the wall are at risk.
Termites can gain entry into your home through the smallest gap or crack in concrete, mortar or metal—1/64 of an inch is all they may need. Termites then construct air and moisture tight shelter tubes leading from the colony in the soil to the wood in your home
During the spring months reproductive termites “swarm”. They are looking for places to form new colonies. If you have termite swarmers inside your home or business, you have termites and need some type of treatment.
Termidor is our product of choice and the best solution available.
Non-repellent Termiticides have changed the termite industry forever. Chemicals like Termidor are non-repellent and termites cannot detect them in the soil. After termites come in contact with Termidor, they go back to the colony and infect other termites through a transfer process (trophallaxis), creating a colony elimination effect.
It is said that there are 2 types of homes in Arkansas…those that have termites and those that will. If you think your home might have termites, Elite is here to help!
