Designing Spaces Talks | Worried about termites

Worried about termites in your home? What if you have termites, but do not know it yet? How do you know if termites are feasting on your home? Well, you are not alone.

Recently Bob Hickman of BASF, the makers of Termidor, appeared on Lifetime’s Designing Spaces to talk with homeowner Karen about termites.  Palmetto Exterminators is a proud user of Termidor and Termidor HE High Efficiency Termiticide for all of our termite control.

Homeowner Karen is worried about the possibility of termites in her home. Enter Bob Hickman, an expert on termites, who approaches the topic first with an attitude of “Know your enemy to better defeat them.” After a lesson on the different types of termites, Bob shifts gears into the types of treatments for eradicating the nasty little wood chompers, including the latest version of Termidor®. Termidor® HE High Efficiency Termiticide liquid treatments are the most successful termite treatments to date offering protection to homes year after year. After Bob leads Karen on a termite inspection of her home, he offers up measures homeowners can take that contribute to reducing the risk of termites. How safe is YOUR home?

Preventing & Eliminating Termites

Did you know that termites cause over $5 billion of damage annually in the U.S. alone?

We protect our homes by buying insurance for fire and theft, even floods… why not protect our homes from termites before it’s too late and the damage is done to your biggest asset? Taking the right action will prevent or eliminate these invaders.

Termidor (R) HE high Efficiency termiticide from BASF is America’s leading product having protected some 4 million homes since 2000. Have an inspection done by a professional and then if there is a problem, use this trusted product to ensure that no more damage is done.

If you don’t think you have a problem, do an inspection anyway and ask your Pest Control Professional to put a preventative system in place to ensure that if they do arrive, you are ready to eliminate them immediately!

Yes, there are measures homeowners can take that contribute to reducing the risk of termites:

– Subterranean termites need food (cellulose) and water to survive. They bring water from the soil into infested timbers and other cellulose food sources in order to survive. Limiting the amount of water and food sources around a home can help deter termite activity.

– Keep mulch, wood debris, scrap lumber, sawdust and firewood away from your home’s foundation. If you do keep firewood outside your house, keep it raised and off the ground

– Don’t allow leaves to accumulate in gutters which can lead to above ground conducive moisture conditions

On the Designing Spaces episode, “Protecting your Greatest investment: Termite Solutions for Today’s Homeowners” airing on March 21st and April 23rd at 7:30 am (ET/PT), on Lifetime, Bob Hickman from BASF will discuss all you need to know about liquid, monitor/bait termite solutions and more.
