Subterranean TermiteCustomers depend on Extermital for Their Pest Control Needs

Offering residential and commercial pest control services, Extermital Termite & Pest Control has been in the extermination business since 1936. Extermital provides Dayton and the Greater Miami Valley area with highly trained technicians that will work with you to meet all of your pest control needs.

“With 85 years’ experience in the field, Extermital has become Dayton’s leading pest control company. We offer guaranteed pest control service, and we will come back until your home is pest free,” says a spokesperson for Extermital Termite & Pest Control.

What many people don’t realize is that termites can cause major damage to a home in a short period of time, because termites eat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In fact, termites cause billions of dollars in damage each year to homes across the Greater Dayton area. 

According to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), there are more than 2,000 species of termites, and these five species are commonly found throughout the United States:

  • Subterranean termites are the most destructive species of termites in the U.S. These termites live in colonies of up to two-million members and they thrive underground or in moist, secluded areas above ground.
  • Formosan termites are the most voracious termites, and they are difficult to control once they’ve infested a structure because of their aggressive nature.
  • Damp-wood termites are typically larger than other termite species. These termites infest wood that has a high moisture content.
  • Drywood termites infest dry wood. These termites frequently nest in roof materials and wall supports.
  • Conehead termites are an invasive species of termites. They can remain undetected for years due to the fact that they refrain from building nests until their colony is strong and healthy.

Many people tend to think that termites are similar to ants, but the reality is that these are eusocial insects included in the infra-order Isoptera. They evolved from some close ancestors of cockroaches and they are a part of that family.

Known as ‘silent destroyers’ for their ability to chew through wood and other common household materials undetected, the National Pest Management Association encourages homeowners to have their properties professionally inspected for termites once a year to prevent infestations from silently forming, and resulting in costly damage.

“Homeowners may encounter a multitude of termite species. The most common one is the dampwood termite, which is usually found, just like its name suggests, near damp wood. This is why it’s important to deal with the issue as quickly as possible because it will immediately draw termites and its quality will lower even more,” says a spokesperson for Extermital Termite & Pest Control.

Aside from those species, homeowners may also find the drywood termite, which obviously feeds on dry wood, as well as the Formosan termite, subterranean termite, and the conehead termites. These are a few of the many termite species homeowners will encounter in the United States, and they are among the most common.

Termites eat though wood, drywall, wallpaper, or flooring, and most insurance companies don’t cover termite damage. So, homeowners often have to cover the cost of the damage themselves. Fortunately, the experts at Extermital Termite & Pest Control can help homeowners get rid of termites.

Signs of a termite infestation can include a mud-like material, mud tunnels, excavation, various lines in wood, or swarms that fly near pieces of wood. Another important thing to note is that swarmers emerge during the day, so that is a good time to detect a termite infestation.  With a personalized treatment plan from Extermital Termite & Pest Control, homeowners can eliminate terminates in and around their homes, or businesses.

“Satisfaction is the company’s goal, and if the customer isn’t completely satisfied, Extermital ‘will work with them until they are satisfied,’” says Terry Teague, president of Extermital Termite & Pest Control.

In treating termites, Extermital uses what is called “The Sentricon System,” which is a non-invasive termite control and elimination system that works below the ground. The active ingredient used in Sentricon, noviflumuron, is designed to disrupt the molting process that occurs only in insects and closely related organisms. It’s also encased in a protective station in the ground.

Extermital Termite & Pest Control, a Sentricon specialist, serves customers in Dayton, Cincinnati and Columbus.  Extermital highly recommends Sentricon to control and eliminate termites, and the company has been implementing this treatment for years because of its continued effectiveness.

Extermital is also QualityPro certified, which is the mark of excellence in the pest management industry. Emphasizing service over sales, and designating the customer as its top priority, technicians are not only NPMA QualityPro Certified, but they offer the highest standards in the industry when it comes to professionalism and quality service.
