British Columbia is known for natural beauty. With tons of spaces to hike and swim, it is no wonder that residents are committed to preserving the natural beauty around them. Property owners in Victoria are enthusiastic about recycling and environmentalism but there are no better recyclers in the world than termites.
These miniature demolition crews are hard at work throughout the province, wrecking homes and businesses one bite at a time. Instead of letting these bothersome bugs ruin your home or workspace, call Toodaloo for your Victoria termite extermination. Our experts provide excellent results and peace of mind, no matter the type of termites or size of infestation.
Termites are excellent recyclers, but instead of carting a blue box down to the curb, they abide by the three “R”s in their own way. These pests reduce the amount of dead and rotting wood from around forest floors. The space is then reused by other plants and the wood is recycled into a food source, which is then made into sawdust, perfect for composting.
As long as these insects are at work outside, their efforts are appreciated by everyone but when they begin to trail inside homes, it becomes a real problem. Extensive termite damage can leave wooden frames and construction materials looking more like Swiss cheese than sound wood.
The signs of termite infestation can be confused with carpenter ants but the major difference here is that termites eat wood while ants just chew it. If a beam sounds hollow, that is probably because it is. These pests do not stop at just wooden boards and plants, but will move onto other materials as well and that is why it is important to get rid of termites at the first sign.
Natural materials like wood and cellulose make up a ton of products around households. Everything from furniture, sponges, cardboard and even certain types of pastes. Having these items spread out around properties makes termite treatments incredibly difficult. Finding a nest or high traffic area in a crawl space is great but missing one space can lead to a re-infestation in no time.
Without a proper pest control service, termites will eat you out of house and home. While these bugs might all look the same to us, there are various species crawling about all across Canada and the United States. Understanding whether you are dealing with dampwood termites, drywood termites or subterranean termites will help to determine which treatment option is right for your property.
Effective pest management does not just mean laying down traps and walking away. Tracking termite activity through tough-to-reach areas, like wall voids and mud tubes can mean all the difference to your overall results. DIY methods cannot reach these areas and therefore cannot get the right results. A quick online search might detail basic baits and traps using boric acid, but these just don’t work. When you want to the best results, call in a Toodaloo technician. Our experts use imaging tools and injection rods to track and treat high traffic areas directly.
Our Toodaloo technicians are fully trained in various methods of pest removal and extermination, capable of handling any job, of any size, professionally and efficiently. Unlike some other pest control companies our removal solutions are environmentally friendly so you know that there are no harmful chemicals being sprayed throughout your home.
