TERMITES

Termite Control by BugMaster

The Okanagan Valley is home to some of the most destructive termites in North America, causing thousands of dollars in damage each year.  All structures are at risk including brick, steel and timber construction. Because they are subterranean, they commonly enter through tiny cracks in the foundation or basement in and around your home. Termites are secretive by nature and are rarely seen until the damage has been done.

So, how can you protect your property from this threat?

First you need to have an assessment done by a qualified pest control professional. BugMaster not only provides this for free, we also advise on various control options that would be appropriate. In many cases a full sub slab injection is required to ensure termination. Other options include spot treatment, sill plate injection, borate foam spray, and timber sealant.

Inspection

BugMaster will inspect the house and provide a detailed report on the following:

  • Evidence of wood boring insects
  • Severity of damage caused
  • Susceptibility of building to infestation
  • Remedial or protective measures required
  • Further investigations needed

Unless otherwise instructed, we conduct a non-invasive inspection of areas within the property boundaries. We supply a written report on the findings as recommended and outlined by the Ministry of the Environment.

Tell Tale Signs

  • Sawdust-like “powder” near doors, windows or garage
  • Stray wings left near doors, windows or garage
  • Tiny holes on any wood surfaces in or outside of your home
  • Paint that has started to bubble on wood surfaces
  • Mud tunnels lining the foundation of your house, either inside or outside or the obvious sign…
  • Flying termites — inside your house. They can often be seen near sources of light (ironic, since sunlight is their enemy … they may be smart, but they’re not geniuses).
