Subterranean termites are the most destructive wood destroying insects in the United States. They are social insects that live in large, underground colonies. Although they could number in the millions, you might never see them or any evidence of them – until they’ve done very serious damage to your home. Your home may be attacked, no matter how your home is constructed, where it’s located, or how old it is. They cause more than $2 billion in damage each year, on average more property damage than caused by fire, floods, and windstorm combined. Their presence is not readily noticeable because they hide behind wallboards, siding or wood trim.

Termites are not new to us. Their fossilized remains have been found in formations some 55 million years ago, and to this day, their diet has consisted solely of wood and cellulose materials. In nature, they are an essential part of our ecological systems by speeding up the natural cycle of deterioration. They break down dead trees and other wood materials that would otherwise accumulate. This breakdown process recycles wood into humus, which provides nutrients for plants and increases the ability of soil to retain water so that new life can begin.

OUR SOLUTION

There are many termite control products available today. Different pest management companies will try to sell you various methods of controlling termites. However, here at Connecticut Pest Elimination, we only use, Termidor® which is the #1 termite elimination and defense product in the United States. Termidor guarantees results that no other product can match. The United States Department of Agriculture has been conducting ongoing field trials of homes around the world that were treated with Termidor over the past decade. In all study sites, no signs of reinfestations have been found by those homes treated with Termidor. This product is unique because it has a delayed, undetectable Transfer Effect™. Whenever a termite ingests or touches the Termidor, it doesn’t die immediately; it, in effect, becomes a carrier,” transferring Termidor to every other termite it contacts, inadvertently making other termites carriers. This process continues throughout the colony until its eliminated. With Termidor, the colony will be gone within three months.

All of our termite work comes with an transferable guarantee, though the length varies depending on the structure. Unlike other companies, prior to the initial guarantee expiration, the homeowner will receive a termite guarantee extension that will include a re-inspection of the property and treated areas. If new termite evidence is found, we will, of course, retreat the structure at no additional cost. This termite protection renewal is also transferable in the case of new ownership.

Termite inspections are performed personally by Michael J. Lipsett, owner of Connecticut Pest Elimination, Inc. Michael is appropriately licensed by the State of Connecticut and has performed thousands of wood destroying insect inspections.

All termite inspections are written up on a “Wood Destroying Insect Infestation Inspection Report” NPMA-33 Form. This report is required for all FHA/VA loans.

IF YOU SEE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING WARNING SIGNS, WE WILL DISPATCH ONE OF OUR LICENSED INSPECTORS TO EVALUATE:

  • – Dead Termites or wings around windows, doors, heating vents, or in bath tubs.
  • – Termite mud tubes on walls located outside or inside the structure. They usually look like their name – a tube of mud.
  • – Damaged wood – Termites eat from the inside of the wood out, so damaged wood is sometimes difficult to detect.
  • – Live termites – Termites are sometimes found while doing some remodeling or repair. Worker termites are small, whitish insects that move quickly away when exposed to light.
