Termite Control Norfolk

Norfolk termite controlNorfolk, Virginia is one of the most popular tourist spots in the United States. It’s weather, beaches and waterfront attract millions of tourists each and every year. It’s also the second most populous city in Virginia, after Virginia Beach, with an estimated population of 247,189. And as one of the oldest cities in the Hampton Roads metropolitan area, Norfolk is also a city with great cultural and historical importance. It’s home to one of NATO’s Strategic Command headquarters as well as the largest Naval base in the world, the Naval Station Norfolk. Norfolk’s climate and bodies of water are major attractions for the city but they also introduce a number of pest control problems which can be difficult to deal with.

Norfolk is more than just a hotbed of tourist activity, it’s also an area with a large variety of different pests. It’s important to always be wary that your home is free of these pests because they’re capable of doing a large amount of damage in a short amount of time. This goes double for termites as they’re able to completely destroy areas of the home while also going completely unnoticed. It requires immense experience in performing expert termite control treatments that will not only eliminate a termite infestation, but also repair damage from termites wherever it is found. That’s why you should call EcoTek if you have a termite problem. And if you’re not sure if you have a termite problem then we can perform a free termite inspection on your property for free. And if we find any termites present we will exterminate them completely.

  • How to Determine if You Have Termites

    Unfortunately it is more than possible to not know you have a termite problem until you find a whole colony of termites beneath your home or in a room. Or you could spot one of the termite mud tubes which is pictured in the third image below. But by the time you’ve seen one of these signs it is already too late. The termite infestation has already done thousands of dollars worth of damage to that building.

    • Discarded Wings
      When they leave their nests to find a new place to live and breed, termites take flight and upon finding a new suitable nest the will shed their wings entirely.
    • Mud Tubes
      You’ll find these slender tubes next to building access points. You can break them to see if termites are inside.
    • Wood Damage
      You will usually find the damage under or on the back of surfaces. The damage will show up in long furrows.

    Powerful Termite Treatments

    Termidor SC is our go to termite control method. It is a liquid treatment which has been the industry standard for 5 years and running. Our team of exterminators will apply Termidor SC to your foundation to prevent termites from getting in. Termidor SC is labeled for outdoor use. It works when the termites pass through it, the chemical adheres to them and when they return to the colony it will be passed to other termites and then kill the queen and the entire colony. It is effective at killing any current infestations and preventing new colonies from forming. This is the most effective termite treatment that we offer.
