Don’t want termites damaging your property? There are many ways that termites can enter a structure, but the only way to stop them is through treatment. Econ-O-Bug can eliminate a current termite infestation or can protect your property before a termite infestation occurs. We can then provide ongoing termite protection for the life of your structure.

Commonly known as the “termite letter,” Econ-O-Bug offers Wood Destroying Organism inspections and reports. This type of inspection will identify wood destroying organisms such as subterranean termites, dry wood termites, wood boring beetles, powder post beetles, and wood destroying fungi and the conducive conditions that facilitate these pests. Our Specialist will give a thorough and honest evaluation of your property and can give you advice for repairing any problems noted during the inspection.
Types of Treatments
Econ-O-Bug can complete a Termidor® treatment to protect your property from termites. Our Specialist will inspect your property and will give you an explanation of the best treatment option for the structure. No matter which treatment method is used on your property, we guarantee results.
How a Termidor Termite Treatment Works
To control subterranean termites, a liquid Termidor®termiticide/insecticide termite treatment is applied with precision along the foundation walls or exterior perimeter of your home. The treatment uses time-tested application methods at very low rates. It is virtually odor free and won’t cause any disruption to your family’s normal routines.
Termidor binds tightly to the soil to create the “Termidor Zone”. Since this protective termite treatment zone is undetectable to termites, termites can’t avoid it and will not try to find a way around it (as they can with repellent termite treatments).
To control drywood termites, your pest professional may apply Termidor® DRY Termiticide directly into termite galleries to treat drywood termites and termites in structures or objects not connected to your home. Unlike liquid applications, Termidor DRY does not add moisture to wood.
Termidor Kills and Controls Termites Several Ways
When termites eat Termidor treated material, they will die. But Termidor doesn’t stop there. It kills termites by contact as well. And since termites can’t detect its presence, termites directly ingest and contact Termidor as they go about their normal routines.
The Unique Termidor “Transfer Effect™”
Whenever a termite touches Termidor, it can become a “carrier,” transferring Termidor to other termites it contacts. Secondary carriers continue transferring Termidor to other termites they contact, spreading it like a virus throughout the colony. This unique “Transfer Effect™” is one of the reasons no other termite treatment can control termites like Termidor.
Checkups Are Recommended
Regular follow-up inspections and monitoring are the keys to maintaining your Termidor protection and controlling termites over time. Your pest professional may place monitoring devices around your home to detect potential new termite threats. Thorough inspections will also ensure that the Termidor Zone hasn’t been disrupted by subsequent home improvements, alterations, or landscaping.
With a Termidor certified company and America’s #1 termite defense working together to protect your home, termites and costly termite damage will be the last thing on your mind.
Termite Protection Plans
With the installation of a Sentricon Always Active System, a liquid treatment, or a Double Defense Treatment, we will place a termite warranty on the structure. Two types of warranties are available for most homes.
Repair and Re-treatment Plan
In the unlikely event that termites are found on the structure after treatment, we will re-treat the area and repair damages at our cost. Not all homes will qualify for this plan. Our Specialist will let you know which plan you qualify for during the initial termite inspection.
In the unlikely event that termites are found on the structure after treatment, we will re-treat the area at our cost. Although this plan does not cover damages from termites, it will give you the peace of mind that your property is protected from termites.
