Termite Control

Have you seen swarming termites?
Let us take a look for you.


Eastern Subterranean Termites

The most common species of termites we find in the area.  Colonies will be in the soil and worker termites will travel up to their food sources.  On very rare occasions, under special circumstances, are they able to establish colonies above ground.  These termites will swarm during the day usually between 10am and noon from March – April.


Formosan Subterranean Termites

The second most common species of termites we find in the area.  Colonies can be in the soil but if they find favorable areas above ground they will establish colonies above ground.  This species is very aggressive feeder and will eat wood very quickly.  These termites will swarm at night typically from May – June.  They are frequently referred to as the ‘Mother’s Day Swarmers’ because they will often swarm right around Mother’s Day.


Drywood Termites

The least common species of termites we find in the area but we come across them from time to time.  Colonies are completely above ground and do not need contact with the soil.  When you have a colony of these you will typically find their fecal pellets directly below where the colony is located.  These termites will typically require fumigation for treatment.  This species prefers old wood so frequently they will be found in old homes and/or antique furniture.









What Solutions Do You Provide?

We provide multiple option for treatment based on your particular situation.  We provide treatments to the whole home or spot treatments.  Every home or office is different and so we are required by law to do an inspection before we can give you an exact price.  At that time we will go over the different options available to you for an effective treatment to your property and to provide you will long term control.  We provide long term guarantees, not guarantees that you will have to pay for year after year.

I Found Swarmers In My House What Do I Need To Do?

There is two reasons you would find swarmers in your home: 1. termites swarmed outside your home and crawled through an opening to come into your home, 2. the swarm came from your home which means you have worker termites feeding inside.  A termite inspection will provide the answer you need.

Best Practices For
Maintaining Your Lawn

As a property owner, there are many things you can do to keep your lawn healthy and beautiful. By incorporating these best practices into your yard maintenance routine, you can ensure your lawn care service provider’s hard work lasts longer and is more effective.
  1. Water regularly. In general, turf requires one inch of water per week during the active growing season and should be adjusted based on weather conditions. It’s best to apply water in smaller amounts during the week instead of all at once. It’s also better to water in the morning or early afternoon during the heat of the day. Watering at night produces a wet lawn, creating ideal conditions for disease. Irrigation during heat and moisture stress periods can encourage turf recovery, reduce weed encroachment, and help alleviate certain diseases and insect damage.
  2. Maintain a recommended mowing height. Mowing height recommendations vary by grass type. Mow regularly and avoid removing more than one-third of the surface of the turf blade, as short mowing can damage the turf. Grasses with higher mowing heights can better compete with weeds and tolerate drought stress.
  3. Ensure mower blades are sharp, as dull mower blades tear the turf rather than cutting it and create a ragged appearance. Additionally, mow when your turf is dry to avoid clumps of clippings, which will smother the turf if they are not removed. Mowing dry turf allows even distribution of clippings over the lawn. The following is an overview of recommended mowing heights for various grass types.

    Turf type Recommended mowing height (in.) 1 Bermudagrass (common or hybrid) 0.75–2” Bahiagrass 2–4", Centipedegrass 1–1.5” St. Augustinegrass 2.5-4” and Zoysiagrass 0.75–2 3”.

  4. Don’t over-fertilize. While fertilization directly influences turf's ability to tolerate disease pressure, too much can be detrimental. Ensure your lawn is properly fertilized, but avoid adding too much fertilizer, which can cause unwanted damage such as yellowing, browning, or even kill healthy grass.
  5. Aerate soils that are subject to heavy traffic which are prone to compaction. Aeration can help loosen compacted soil, which helps water, air, and fertilizers reach the turf roots. It can also help with overseeding. Typically, you should aerate once or twice a season by removing small cylindrical cores of soil and thatch from your lawn. Tools like a mechanical core aerator can help with this process and can aerate a yard quickly to maximize the area covered. When the soil is moist, the best times for aerating cool-season turf are spring and fall. Warm season turf should be aerated in the summer.
  6. Manage shaded areas. Growing turf in shaded areas can be challenging. Turfgrass needs a significant amount of sunlight to thrive, and lawns can thin out when adequate amounts aren’t received. Pruning tree foliage to help increase the amount of filtered light, can help improve the look and feel of your lawn.
  7. Prevent brown patches. You may begin to see brown spots on your lawn that are likely caused by insects or disease rather than lack of water. If you begin to see damage, contact your lawn care service to develop a treatment plan to help stop the problem from spreading and protect the investment you have made in your lawn.
By incorporating these practices into your lawn care routine, you can create strong, dense turf which can better withstand weed and disease pressure throughout the season.
