The best defense against termites is both a good inspection and an ongoing treatment program

Termite Treatment Options


The two main types of termite treatments for existing homes are traditional liquid barriers  (drilling, trenching, rodding), and termite baiting systems (bait stations filled with a bait matrix cartridge which is implanted in the ground). Both treatments are offered by Haley Pest Control and are customized to fit your property.

Termidor

is made from a revolutionary new non-repellent liquid termiticide. Termites cannot see, smell, taste or avoid Termidor. Instead they share it with others in their colony by touching or ingesting it. This is in sharp contrast to older liquid termite controls, which rely on repellent barriers that termites can find breaks in or avoid completely. Termites who contact Termidor transfer it to every other termite they come in contact with. The   "Transfer Effect™"  of  Termidor is engineered to be slow-acting so that termites have plenty of time to spread it throughout the entire termite colony. Click on the Termidor Logo to the left for more information.

  • America's #1 termite defense with over 2 million homes treated since 2000.
  • Kills by ingestion, contact, and the "Transfer Effect," meaning affected insects help spread Termidor throughout the colony before dying themselves.
  • Controls colonies up to 6 times faster than bait systems.
  • Most effective termiticide — over 10 years of test data prove most effective and fastest at eliminating termite populations.
  • Responsible, low-dose treatment, with no odor.
  • Has no effect on soil micro-organisms, earth worms or plants.

Termite swarmer on tip of fingerIs it an Ant or is it a Termite?
That's a Termite swarmer on my index finger. Most people know that termites have wings and fly, sometimes in vast numbers. Ants have the ability to fly as well. Termite swarmers and ant swarmers look very similar. Both have wings and they are black. Termites have 4 very delicate wings, (See Termite swarmer picture on  my thumb) which are the same size rounded at the end.

Termite swarmers have 2 segments; a head and a long body, but no waistline. Ants, on the other hand, have a pinched-in abdomen and have three segments; the head, thorax, and abdomen. See pic to the right. (Do you see the thin spine in the middle of the carpenter ants swarmers body?) Compare that to the picture to the left and picture of termite

 

Annual Termite Damage
Insurance homeowner policies underwrite damage caused by hail, fire, floods, tornados or hurricanes like Katrina. They will not cover damage (estimated at 2 to 3 Billion Dollars annually) caused by another force of nature, such as termites.


Termites evolved from wood eating roaches over 200 million years ago. In the African Savannah termites recycle 1/3 to 1/2 of all the carbon available. They are the best recyclers on the planet. They eat cellulose and in your house that means wood, wood framing, siding and sheet rock; basically the majority of your structure. You don't want termites to recycle your house.

 

Termite Swarm Season
In Kansas and Missouri the termite swarm season usually starts around the end of March with the peak time to swarm around April 15th. The first swarm of the season usually happens on a day after a thunderstorm when the humidity and the temperature are high.
