Keep Destructive Termites At Bay With Covenant Pest Control

Keeping termites out of your Boerne area house is extremely vital because of the havoc they can wreak on its internal structure. The main problem with termites is that they eat wood. This means that they will be chewing through the structural components of your house, causing costly and serious structural damage. They can also fly under your radar for many months or even years because they do not have to scavenge for food, which means that you may never see them.

This is why you have to be vigilant to keep termites at bay, and the best way to do that is to contact Covenant Pest Control for a thorough termite inspection before you start seeing the signs of active termites. Once you start seeing signs of termite damage, it is likely too late to avoid incurring some repair costs.

Developing a termite problem is a lot easier than you think, and it's also a lot easier than most homeowners realize to miss an ongoing termite infestation for months. You might think that you can prevent termites using over-the-counter products like baits and foggers. However, termites are pests that you really need professional-grade treatments to prevent.

This isn't just because of the terrible ineffectiveness of most store-bought termite control products. It's also because homeowners with untrained eyes are very prone to missing components of an infestation. You will likely notice an established nest and deal with that while allowing all of the satellite nests that the original nest already put out to remain undisturbed. This can allow the infestation to continue to spread, and it's another reason why you need professional termite control services. 

Here at Covenant Pest Control, our termite experts have all the training and tools to eliminate entire termite infestations rather than just temporarily reducing termite populations around your house. Our termite control process can help keep you safe from an infestation of these sneaky and destructive pests.

Our Termite Control Process

The first thing we do when we come to your home is perform a thorough evaluation of its current termite conditions. This doesn't just include looking for active infestations; we also inspect your home for conducive conditions that could lead to termite infestation in the future.

If our inspection does turn up termite issues, we'll get started right away on our termite removal services. We offer several different termite elimination options, and we can work with you on a custom plan that meets your budget while also eliminating current infestations and helping you prevent new ones.

Regardless of whether you have an active infestation, we recommend at least an annual termite inspection to ensure your home is protected from these destructive pests. An annual inspection allows us to catch early-stage infestations before you see obvious signs of them, so we can nip them in the bud, preventing damage.
