Do I Need a Termite Treatment?

Termites are one of the most common and destructive pests here in Long Island. Dealing with an infestation isn’t just a headache; it can also be incredibly costly, depending on the severity of your infestation. For that reason, it’s important to take quick action and get termite treatment as soon as you notice the signs of termite activity.

Termite Treatment Vs Prevention

Termite treatment is the process of eliminating an active infestation. Professionals may use bait stations, liquid termiticides, or other tactics to kill off the colony and stop them from damaging your home. This process is generally only necessary if you already have termites. 

On the other hand, termite prevention is something you should invest in even if you’ve never experienced an infestation. This is the process of making your home uninviting to termites and other wood-destroying pests, and it can help you avoid the frustration of dealing with an infestation in the first place. Since termites are active year-round, termite prevention should be an ongoing process.

How Long Do Termite Treatments Last?

Different termite treatments have different lifespans. While bait stations often need to be checked and maintained by a professional once per month, liquid termiticides can last for up to a decade without any follow-up. 

Prior to applying a termite treatment to your property, your pest professional will go over the different options with you – including how long they should last. They’ll ensure the treatment is right for your needs and goals.

What Time of Year Do I Need Termite Prevention?

Termites aren’t seasonal pests, so you should invest in termite prevention all year long. Professional monitoring and annual termite inspections will ensure your property is completely protected no matter the season.
