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.
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.
Termites are in the Okanagan, more than you may think! Here are some termite hot spots that BugMaster has exterminated. Is your home in or near a hot spot?
