If termites are present and have infested your home, TAPS termite control expert will first determine which species is attacking your home before making any recommendations. In Hollister, it is important to determine if you have dry-wood termites, subterranean termites, or both. Your TAPS inspector will always recommend the best treatment option for your home, whether that involves a one-day treatment or fumigation. Remember, at TAPS Termite we also have many alternatives to a full-blown tent fumigation. Things like orange oil spot treatment, microwave and heat treatments just to mention a few.

When termites swarm, they are looking for new and tasty places to establish their next colony (leading to expensive damage). This means that termites can easily fly to you from virtually anywhere. Many people know at least one person on their block that does not keep up with their home maintenance as well as they probably should. This means that a swarm can fly over from your neighbor’s home and take up residence in your home! TAPS offers periodic protection services that can prevent future infestations from occurring by catching them before they make your house their new home. This helps to ultimately lower and spread the cost of termite control over time. Don't wait before it is too late!
Although these pests vary significantly in the number of species they belong to, there are only about three types that homeowners, repairmen, carpenters and house inspectors encounter. These are the Formosan, the subterranean or ground termite and the drywood termite. Of these, the two often found to inflict plenty of damage are the subterranean and drywood types.
If you have enough evidence to believe that your home might be under termite attack, the best thing to do is to consult a pest control professional to take a look at your house. They would know best how to kill termites. Trying to treat the infestation on your own may just make the problem worse. And take note that the best time to kill termites is always right away.
