Bugs B Gone Solution for Termites
Termites play a vital role in our ecosystem. They maintain nature’s balance by breaking down dead wood and other plant material. There are nearly 50 known termite species in North America and more than 2,600 worldwide. However, when termites invade homes, they become major pests and cause an estimated $5 billion dollars in damages in the United States each year. Billions more are spent on termite prevention and treatment, making them the most economically significant wood-destroying organisms in the United States. An average home suffers $7,900 in damages before termites are detected and termite damage may not be covered by many homeowners’ insurance. Prevention is key. It is important to have annual inspections. Early discovery provides you a head start in solving this problem.
The Bugs B Gone Treatment Approach
Our Protection Plan is the most innovative and complete termite protection plan offered in the United States. We combine a variety of control techniques into a single, comprehensive, and effective treatment program. It safeguards your home from termites by focusing on both the soil and the structure.
Combining above and below- ground treatments provide you with the most complete and thorough protection. Treatment areas include attics, eaves, walls, windows, doors, plumbing pipes, foundations, and slabs. We diagnose your individual needs and provide a customized solution. While most termite control companies only provide your home with protection against one type of termite, our Protection Plan is effective against any and all termites.
You can feel secure in knowing you are buying the best protection available.
Bugs B Gone’s trained professionals know that no two homes are the same. Our termite control experts have been trained to “think like a bug” in order to best understand and eliminate your pest problem. Your Bugs B Gone specialist will inspect common termite entry points such as:
- Cracks and crevices in the foundation
- Voids in concrete block
- Spaces between slab joints
- Gaps in plumbing pipes
- Wall fractures
- Swarms access eaves, attics, doors, or windows
- Via firewood or furniture
After a thorough inspection, we will provide you a customized and individualized assessment and treatment plan. We can help you get rid of termites regardless of your home’s construction type, material, or age.
How do we do it? Protection Plan covers your home’s interior, exterior, and foundation, eliminating any opportunities for termites to persist in and around your home. Our trained professionals can treat for termites in hard-to-reach places like wall voids and moldings. Since we treat the interiors, exteriors, and everywhere in between, we go above and beyond to provide you with termite control where other methods fail. On in the interior, Bugs B Gone treats bath traps and plumbing, slab cracks/expansion joints, garage expansion joints, and direct active infestation. Exterior treatment includes wood privacy fences, dead tree stumps, landscape timber, and preventative exterior treatments as needed. In your home’s foundation, Bugs B Gone will treat the crawlspace foundation, the crawlspace pier, as well as the foundation void. Our competitors don’t treat any of these common termite-hiding places.
The application technology makes the difference. We have several non-invasive application methods to provide you with comprehensive treatment to safely protect you and your family.
For finished surfaces: the tornado. As the name implies, our exclusive tornado method penetrates through and follows wood imperfections that are barely visible. Active ingredients mix with water as a propellant. Next, high-pressure air forces the mixture deep into cracks and crevices, getting deep inside doors and window jambs, sills, and moldings.
For interior voids: the high-pressure mister. We use a high-pressure mister to treat your attics and wall voids by covering surfaces of unfinished wood. Active ingredients are mixed with high-pressure water to create small droplets for full coverage. Smaller droplets allow us to apply more ingredients in more places.
For soil treatments: liquid treatments. Bugs B Gone protects your home inside and out. As part of our comprehensive treatment plan, we treat the soil near and under your home. We apply liquid treatments in trenches or drillings to protect foundations, slabs, and tub traps.
For under-slab protection, the difference is in the injection rods. Our thin-walled, lightweight stainless steel rod injection system makes the entire under-slab process less intrusive while still effectively delivering our trusted treatment.
The new injection rods are smaller (¼-inch – about the size of a pen) – constructed of thin-walled, lightweight stainless steel – provide comprehensive 360- degree coverage, and an improved flow rate. Instead of using a single flood tip that limits application to just the end of the rod, the multi-directional tip uses six to eight holes around the rod. This modern application method is less invasive, provides a more complete application, in a shorter amount of time – saving you time and money. For example, an average- sized -home with a supported slab treatment, would receive about 200 gallons of treatment on both the inside and outside of the foundation as well as into block voids.
