Termite Control & Extermination
Protecting Homes & Businesses Since 1972
In the United States alone, and excluding Alaska, termites cause an average of $5 billion in property damage a year. Much like ants, they live in colonies (which typically contain thousands to millions of termites) that are made up of the queen, who can lay millions of eggs throughout her lifetime; the king, whose only purpose is to mate with the queen; the soldiers, who protect the colony from any invaders or potential threats; swarmers, who have wings and travel from their colony to reproduce and make new colonies; and the workers, who feed the colony via regurgitation and forage for food 24/7. Most of the destruction in your property’s wood is the result of worker termites building tunnels, which they mark with a pheromone, guiding others to the food source.
If you have noticed possible insect-caused wood damage, call Frame’s Pest Control today to have one of our qualified technicians confirm its source. When we come out, we will inspect your property in Toledo or Ann Arbor to determine whether the destruction was, in fact, caused by termites as well as the specific type invading your home or business. Identifying the type of termite infestation you’re dealing with will enable us to come up with a customized treatment plan that will best eliminate and prevent future visits from these pesky creatures. All of our wood destroying insect inspections meet all BA and FHA requirements for real estate transactions and are consistent with form NPMA-33. Before we begin any work, we will provide you with a free detailed estimate.
How to Tell an Ant from a Termite
Ants and termites tend to infest the same areas of your home and they look extremely similar. Therefore, it’s important to know how to distinguish between the two. An ant is characterized by its bent antennae, unequal length wings, and thin abdomen.
Whereas a termite is characterized by its:
- Straight antennae
- Equal length wings
- Straight abdomen
We Use Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System
At Frame’s Pest Control, we only use the highest-quality, safe, and effective treatments to rid your property of irritating invaders and prevent them from coming in. We are proud to be one of the only companies in the area that uses the Sentricon® termite colony elimination system. After a thorough inspection of your property, our pest control professionals will strategically place several Sentricon® stations. These devices have a bait technology that is immediately available. Even better? Termites prefer the bait nearly 10 times more than wood and workers share the location of the bait. These stations contain an active ingredient, noviflumuron, that impede a termite’s ability to molt and eventually kills them. Eventually, the entire colony dies off, leaving your property termite-free.
