Dealing with a termite infestation can be a nightmare that can cause thousands of dollars in structural damage very quickly. Even though they can do significant damage, termites can be difficult to spot before the damage occurs. There are signs that indicate when termites have started to invade your property. On the right, you can see the example of one, which is termite mud tube. A trained professional can recognize this as an indicator of serious problem. However, without training, it may be easy to overlook this sign.
To effectively protect your home from a full-blown termite infestation and the devastating results, you need to prevent the problem or catch it early. EcoTek provides free termite inspections by our expert pest control technicians. If they find termites, they will provide a detailed treatment plan along with a free estimate. EcoTek’s comprehensive termite control plan includes extermination of all the termites in your home, debris cleanup, and any structural damage repairs that need to be completed.
At EcoTek, we understand that there is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan. We offer multiple proven methods of preventing and removing termite infestations. We have the powerful conventional treatment options, as well as chemical free, environmentally friendly solutions, liquid barriers treatments, monitoring systems and even liquid non-detectable solutions to use. EcoTek will always work toward giving you the peace of mind of knowing your property is free from termites, no matter what method we use.
Potent Termite Treatments
EcoTek uses Termidor SC for our termite control treatment, which has been rated the best liquid insecticide for 5 straight years. This will be applied to the top of the foundation of your building to stop the termites chewing through the wood. The insecticide works because the termites will carry it back to the colony where it will eliminate the queen and other termites. It also works to prevent new infestations from occurring.
Chemical Free Monitoring Stations
We offer chemical free monitoring stations for your property. Our technicians will install EcoTek Term-Pro bait stations around your property. These contain wood and cardboard to attract the termites. Our technicians will monitor them and apply a treatment to eliminate any termites that are found. This is a good option if there is not an active infestation currently since they make it easy for our technicians to spot invading termites.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will the treatment affect the wildlife in the area?
At EcoTek, we use Termidor SC to eliminate termites. This is the safest termite insecticide on the market and other wildlife should be safe after the treatment is completed. The treatment is applied to the foundation of your home.
Is the treatment safe for my family and pets?
Once applied there is no danger to your family or pets. At EcoTek, we use Termidor SC which is the safest termite insecticide on the market. This option is used outdoors.
When should I get an inspection?
We recommend receiving an annual inspection. Termites swarm during the spring, and this is a good time for an inspection, though we can schedule one at any time during the year. If you suspect you have termites you should schedule one right away.
Will I still be able to sell my home if it gets termites?
Termites are a common occurrence and you should still be able to sell your home once you have taken care of the termites and repair any damage to the property. Home values should return to normal at this point. You will need to keep documentation of the inspections, treatment plans, repair work and continued inspections and treatments.
How long will an inspection take?
The initial inspection will take between 30 to 60 minutes depending on the size of your property. Our technician will look for signs of termites and if any are found will give you a free estimate on the cost of treatment and a plan based on the seriousness of the infestation. It will also include an estimate for damage repairs.
How can I prevent termites?
Termites are attracted to wood and so clearing your property of fallen trees, mulch and wood piles can help. Additionally, when you install a deck or fence be sure that it made from treated wood. You should also make sure your home is in good repair. Repair any leaky pipes since termites are attracted to damp wood. Make sure that the roof is in good repair and all vents are covered with a grate to prevent termites from finding a way inside.
