Termite Control Virginia Beach
Virginia Beach, Virginia is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. It’s a resort city, and with miles of beaches, hotels, and restaurants, it truly has something for everyone. It’s also the most populous city in Virginia with a population that was estimated in 2015 to be 452,745. It’s part of the Hampton Roads metropolitan area and as such holds great historical value to the country. In fact it’s home to Cape Henry, which was the site where English colonists first landed in America. And while Virginia Beach does have a little bit of everything it also has its fair share of insects and rodents which can lead to a bevy of pest control problems.
Virginia Beach has plenty of things to see but one thing you don’t want to see is any kind of pest inside your home. This is especially true of termites. There are few insects that are as dreaded as termites, and with good reason. They’re capable of doing tons of damage to a home without being discovered, until it’s too late. That’s why here at EcoTek we have developed a proven method of not only killing termites through effective termite control treatments, but making sure they don’t return. If you have a termite problem, or think you may have one, you shouldn’t hesitate to contact EcoTek for a free termite inspection. We have been helping customers with termite control since 2011. We’ll work fast to eliminate the termite infestation, clean up all insect and wood debris, and then repair the termite damage.

How to Determine if You Have Termites
It’s easy to miss a termite infestation. Most homeowners don’t even suspect they have one until they discover a colony of termites beneath their house or discover a group of them inside a room. And when it comes to a termite infestation you have to move fast or your home may fall victim to a tremendous amount of damage. And If you spot any of the signs below in your own home, there’s a chance it’s already too late.
- Discarded Wings
Termites will drop these upon finding a new colony. Once they arrive they’ll never need their wings again so they just shed them.
- Mud Tubes
These are small tubes which protect termites while they’re on the move. It’s possible to break them to see if any termites are inside.
- Wood Damage
This will present itself either behind or below surfaces. Look for the damage to appear in long grooves.
It just isn’t a good idea to wait until you think you have a termite problem. This is especially true since EcoTek provides free termite inspections. We will give you an estimate of any costs associated with an infestation–and if no termites are present, then you can just rest easy. Any estimate we do provide will cover the expense of not only exterminating the termites, but also any costs associated with repairing the damage they caused. It’s all part of EcoTek’s comprehensive termite control solution. We handle the elimination procedure, the cleanup, the repairs and best of all, we guarantee the termites won’t be back.
Powerful Termite Treatments
Our termite control solution uses a liquid insecticide called Termidor SC. Termidor SC has been the best termiticide on the market for 5 years running. EcoTek will deliver the termite solution to the top of your foundation in order to make sure anything eating the wood is unable to continue. Termidor SC is an outdoor treatment. As the termites travel in and out of your home, they will pass through the chemical barrier and take the treatment back to the colony, which will eliminate the queen and the entire colony. The treatment is effective at killing the current colony and preventing new colonies from entering your home.
