Saskatoon Termite Extermination
There are thousands of species of termites throughout the world. In Canada, our Toodaloo technicians only have to worry about a few. The most common types of termites are the subterranean or the damp wood. Luckily, our process for Saskatoon termite extermination is ready for anything.
The largest advantage that termites have over humans is their sneakiness. Termite colonies are first formed outside, with the potential to operate for years before entering a home. During this time their populations thrive and they get organized for their expansion. Now, when they do make their way inside, termites spend their time underground or behind walls. These are two places that humans just don’t go so their presence can go undetected for long periods. Contrary to other insects, termites do not have an expansive diet and rely solely on cellulose-based materials. Inside many homes in Saskatchewan, wood makes up the majority of property foundations, as well as siding, and termites can even reach furniture and books, whose binding is usually made from cellulose. This is a lot of room for these small insects to cause big damage.
Saskatoon Termite Extermination: Identifying The Problem
Termites eat wood from the inside out, leaving few traces of the efforts, but our Toodaloo technicians know what to look for. One of the most obvious indicators of these pests are tunnels running through the sound wood around your property. Termites thrive in dampness and moisture so they need to pack their tunnels and burrows with mud in order to retain the moisture in their environments. This is just one of the many tidbits our Toodaloo technicians have spent time studying, and becoming familiar with in order to provide our clients with proper identification and preventative measures.
With over two decades of experience in the pest control industry, our technicians know what to look for, how to handle the issue and how to help make sure these insects don’t find their way back in.
