Termite Control for Laredo Texas
The treatment of termites fall into two broad categories; Non-chemical treatments and chemical treatments.
While most people are aware of chemicals such as insecticides to treat termites, some non chemical solutions have been known to be effective.
- One such method is a physical barrier, typically incorporated during construction.
- Steel mesh and sands of particular sizes have been shown to perform effectively as physical barriers.
- Biological control agents (nematodes and fungi) have demonstrated some success, particularly in laboratory settings.
Because these methods do not involve the application of an insecticide, EPA does not regulate them.
All chemical treatment for pesticides must meet minimum EPA guidelines. The pesticides used for the prevention or treatment of termite infestations are called termiticides and must demonstrate the ability to provide structural protection before the EPA can register them. In most cases, termiticide application can only be properly performed by a trained pest management professional.
Approved termite treatments include:
- Liquid soil-applied termiticides.
- Termite baits.
- Building materials impregnated with termiticides.
- Wood treatments.
Two common forms of treatment are conventional barrier treatments and termite baits.
Conventional Barrier Treatments
The most common technique for treating termite infestations is the soil-applied barrier treatment. Termiticides used for barrier treatments must be specifically labeled for that use. If conducted improperly, these treatments can cause contamination of the home and surrounding drinking water wells and will not protect against termites. Our expert exterminators are fully trained and skilled at the application and prevention of all types of solutions.
In recent years, several bait systems have been introduced to help reduce the overall use of insecticides and their impact on human health and the environment. These systems rely on cellulose baits that contain a slow-acting insecticide.

How Do I Know if I Have Termites?
To prevent costly damage from termites you must be on the alert for their presence. Most people are not aware they have termites until its too late and they see damage during construction or they see a swarm. Termites are rarely seen emarging from soil, mud tubes, or food sources through which they are tunneling.
To uncover termites around your home try these steps:
- Examine, by probing, exposed wood for hollow spots (using a flathead screwdriver or similar tool).
- Identify termite swarms (sometimes ant swarms are mistaken as termites).
- front wings longer than the back wings
- antennae bent at ninety degree angle
- wings are roughly equal in length
- antennae are straight; may droop
