Homeowners Seek Treatment as Super Termites Arrive in Mount Dora

The recent news that super termites have arrived is requiring many Mount Dora homeowners seek termite treatment. Two of the most feared termite species are now crossbreeding in the state.

The new super termite in the Central Florida and Lake County area is a crossbreed of the Asian Subterranean Termite and Formosan Subterranean Termite species. Both of which have been existent in Florida for sometime. However, the species have never lived together simultaneously as they are doing now.

As a leading pest control service with more than thirty years of experience, we are providing homeowners in Mount Dora and Central and North Lake County communities with the best termite treatment that is safe, convenient and affordable.   

Termite Inspection

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) termites infest millions of homes causing $750 million in damages annually. Once termites gain entry to a home they immediately get to work building colonies and multiply very quickly. They feed on wood such as flooring, baseboards, beams and framing that hold up the structure. Left untreated, they can eat through an entire home in about six months.

Since it is usually very difficult to notice the damage until it is too late, you need to act upon noticing the first sign of infestation. However, it is not always easy to identify such signs. We recommend annual termite inspections. If termites are found we can stop them in their tracks before they cause major structural damage. It all starts with a free home termite inspection.

 

Termite Treatment

There are a variety of termiticides on the market, but Termidor® has proven to be one of the most effective because termites cannot detect it. As they feed on the termiticide, they transfer it to other insects in what is called the “transfer effect”. Therefore, despite the devastating spread of the super termite in Mount Dora and the Central Florida area, we can eliminate them with this proven termite treatment.
