Termite Control in Columbus, OH

Termites cause more damage in the United States than tornados, earthquakes, and hurricanes combined. We provide termite control in Columbus, OH. The most common termite is the subterranean termite, which attacks the structure from beneath the soil. By entering through or over the foundation, the termite colony circulates into the wood components of the structure. Subterranean termites will continue to infest a structure without treatment until their cellulose supply is destroyed. Fortunately, although there are no reliable products available at retail outlets, there are various treatment options available to professional pest management technicians.

We Offer the Best Guarantee in the Industry

We offer two types of contracts for continuing termite protection. The first is a TORCO Service Plan which provides for additional treatments at no additional charge during the contract term . The second is the premium  TORCO Protection Plan, which also provides for new termite damage repair. 

Termite Damage

We Offer a Variety of Treatment Strategies

Every situation is different, and successful termite control requires a detailed examination of your infestation. Once an inspection is conducted, we will be able to outline the appropriate program for you. We offer two general approaches. One is a liquid treatment using an EPA registered termiticide, which is dispursed underground and throughout the exterior perimeter of the structure. The other general approach involves the use of termite baits that are inserted into the soil perimeter of the structure, and to specific live areas inside the structure. Learn more about each method by clicking below:  The most popular program is done with liquid Termidor™.

Termites Are Different Than Ants –Know The Difference

Termites and ants are often mistaken because they look very similar, particularly the reproductive swarmers that are commonly observed in the spring time. Knowing the tell tale differences makes a proper identification simple. First, termites have straight antenae, whereas ants have kinked antenae; second, termites have oblong wings, whereas ants have unsymetrical and veined wings; and third, termites have two body parts, whereas ants have three, that is the head, thorax and abdomen. If in doubt, call a professional for a proper identification or take a specimen to the entomology lab at Ohio State. Go to our library for more information.
