TERMITES

Termites infest over 5 million homes in the U.S. every year and cause over 5 billion dollars in property damage annually! Termites cause more damage annually than all-natural disasters such as fires, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, storms, etc. However, this damage is rarely covered by homeowner’s insurance. But luckily, Rebel Pest Control offers termite protection services in mid-Missouri to prevent termite damage to your home.

The pest removal experts at Rebel Pest Control, Inc. are experts in termite biology, inspection, and treatment. We are affiliated with The Board of Realtors and National Pest Management Association and have performed thousands of termite inspections in central Missouri.

Identifying Termite Damage in Your Nevada Home

Here in Nevada there are two types of homes: those that have termites and those that will! University of Nevada research has shown that by the age of 40, 70% of structures in Central Nevada have termites or have already had a termite infestation. This research has also concluded that virtually 100% of structures in Central Nevada will have termites in its lifetime.

Termites are around-the-clock eating machines! Termites naturally break down plant and wood material.

  • In Nevada, there can be as many as 20 termite colonies in one acre of ground and up to 1 million members per colony. When you eventually notice termite activity, serious damage may have already occurred.
  • In fact, the average repair cost, once termites have been discovered, is between $3,000 and $11,000.
  • The most common termite species in Central Nevada can consume the equivalent of approximately 5-15 feet of a 2×4 per year!
  • Termites infest over 5 million homes in the United States every year and cause over $5 billion in property damage annually.
  • Termites cause more damage annually than all-natural disasters such as fires, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, and storms – damage that is rarely covered by insurance.

Stop the Infestation Before it Occurs with Termite Prevention Services

The risk of a termite infestation is an inevitable fact of life in Nevada. To protect your home or business from an infestation, we recommend our termite prevention services.

Here are some tips that will help to prevent a termite infestation:

  1. Make sure your soil grade allows moisture to drain away from your house or building.
  2. Have 2-4 inches of the building’s foundation extend above the soil grade so the brick and other siding do not contact the soil grade.
  3. Eliminate cellulose close to the structure. This includes mulch, woodpiles, landscape timbers, foam boards, wood scraps.
  4. Avoid deck post from extending beneath the soil grade.

Even after doing everything possible to discourage a termite attack, it can still happen.

Timeline Of Results For Successful Termite Control

Rebel Pest Control’s System starts eliminating the colony immediately when termites are introduced to our above ground (AG) bait stations. When live termites, active damage, or live mud trails are present, we can use AG stations to dramatically speed up the time it takes to eliminate the colony by installing AG bait stations to these live areas. Once 28 days of termite feeding has occurred, there has been enough consumption to eliminate the colony and, if the last stragglers of the colony have not been eliminated at this point, those affected termites do not have the capacity to cause further damage! In fact, at Rebel, we have thousands of customers here in central Missouri that we have confirmed total colony elimination within 90 days of bait consumption.

Liquid Barrier treatments once again, don’t eliminate the colony and are only designed to “control” or “manage” the colony. According to the manufactures of most of the commonly used termiticides, it can take up to 90 days to achieve “termite management”. Within a few years, the applied materials will decay and will need to be reapplied.

Rebel Pest Control’s System is the most non-intrusive solution. Installation of Rebel requires no concrete drilling, no trenching, and no disruption of landscaping. Rebel bait stations are carefully installed (usually every 8-10 feet apart) around the building’s perimeter including around decks, patios, small storage sheds, nearby stumps and wood piles, and any other nearby food source. All Rebel stations are numbered, locked and tamper resistant, and are graphed for location. All stations are inspected on a regular basis by a Rebel Authorized Professional.

Liquid Barrier Treatments can be very intrusive. The manufacturer’s label requires hammer-drilling all attached exterior concrete every 12-18 inches to treat the soil beneath as well as interior concrete drilling in areas where termites have gained access. This can result in pulling up carpet, drilling through tile, linoleum, etc. When drilling concrete there is an added risk of damage to water, gas and sewer lines, air ducts in the slab, etc. After treatment is administered, the drilled holes are plugged and patched with cement. Patched drill holes will be visibly prominent and often, over time, become an “eyesore”. best long-term protection The Rebel system provides ongoing protection for future colonies – which in Missouri there can be up 20 termite colonies per acre of ground! University of Missouri research has shown that virtually every home in our area can and probably will have a termite infestation during its lifetime. The Rebel system acts like a termite burglar alarm. As long as Rebel Pest Control, Inc. provides continuous service, we’ll find a future termite intrusion before it gets to the house and destroys the colony! With Rebel Pest Control, Inc. and The Rebel System featuring Always Active, you’re always protected – 24/7! Liquid Barrier Treatments only provide termite control. Once the termite treatment has been performed, your building becomes the termite monitor! When you or your service provider discovers that termites have once again re-infested and are causing possible damage and you are still under warranty, you’ll receive a “spot treatment” in the area of the redevelopment. It is inevitable that a liquid termite treatment will decay and re-treatments will be necessary.

Rebel Pest Control’s service has a lifetime warranty with a paid annual renewal. From the beginning, if any other termite protection is ever needed at any time during the course of our service, it will be performed at no additional charge. Our termite warranty and protection will transfer to new ownership and may be renewed indefinitely!

Liquid Barrier Termite Treatments traditionally have a one-year re-treatment only warranty that may be extended an additional 4 to 9 years (depending on the service company) with annual paid renewals. If these renewals are paid within 30 days of the anniversary date of the initial termite treatment, a re-inspection will be performed and the warranty is extended another year. If live termite activity is found, a re-treatment in the area of the infestation is performed. If the termite treatment warranty is not renewed within 30 days of the due date, it will expire and end. Just because a company offers 5 to 10-year warranty doesn’t mean the treatment lasts that long! It means that when termites are discovered re-infesting the structure and you’ve paid the annual renewals; a spot treatment will be performed in the area of the redevelopment. It a violation of federal law for a service company to issue a warranty beyond 1 year without an annual termite inspection.
