Termite Elimination in NJ. Termite groups include grass-eating, subterranean, soil-feeding, dry-wood, and damp-wood eaters. The subterranean and dry wood varieties cause most of the damage to homes and buildings.
Termites are able to consume any wood-derived material including building timbers, books, and packing crates. If it is made of wood or paper, termites can eat it. Their capacity for destroying dead plants knows no bounds. They are notorious for the damage they can do to buildings and other wood products.
The objective of a termite treatment is to apply a chemical barrier adjacent to the foundation walls to keep termites from returning to the soil for moisture, thus preventing them from entering the structure and attacking the wood members.
Callahan’s Termite and Pest Control will provide, at no cost, a diagram indicating where the infestation and or damage exists, and will carefully map out a custom termite barrier for your specific needs.
Once a treatment is performed by Callahan’s, we will conduct an annual inspection upon contract renewal. If any active termites are detected, we will perform the necessary treatment at no additional cost.
Termite Insect Damage Repairs
Visible signs of infestation by termites and wood destroying insects include mud tubes along foundation walls, blistered or wavy wood, sawdust residue near beams or studs, and sagging floors. By the time these signs are visible, extensive wood damage may have already occurred. Termites eat the wood from the inside out, and the results can go undetected for years. The alarming result of infestation by termites and other wood-destroying insects is weakened, splintered, and rotted wooden beams that are crucial to the structure they support.
According to the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, termites cause more than $1 billion in damage ever year throughout the U.S.
Callahan’s specialists control the infestation AND make the necessary repairs.
