Protect Your Home Against Termites In Three Simple Steps
What Are Termites?
Although termites are found throughout the United States, the exact type varies among different regions. Eastern subterranean termites are usually found in the Danville / Champaign area. It’s possible to find other types of termites, but they are not native to Illinois and usually arrive in lumber, mulch or furniture. Additionally, non-native termites are not able to survive the cold winters, so they can’t establish permanent colonies in and around your home.
Subterranean termites can’t take prolonged exposure to sunlight or air, so they live deep in the ground and build mud tubes to protect them while they search for food and bring it back to the colony. These pests feed on wood, and they can cause severe structural damage to your home if they aren’t caught early. If left untreated, subterranean termites will completely eat through the soft interior of the wood, leaving only the hard grain behind. Often, their mud tunnels are the only outward signs of their presence.
Quality Termite Extermination
At Terminix, we believe that a combination approach is the best way to control subterranean termites. We apply liquid pesticide to the soil around your home, and this works to immediately eliminate termites that ingest the soil and those that may come in contact with them. We also apply a bait system around the perimeter of your home. As termites forage for food, they take the bait back to the colony, which will be eliminated after its inhabitants consume the bait. This will also prevent future colonies from being established, and our experienced technicians will continue to monitor the baited areas for signs of activity.

Loved Marcus, good guy all around. Fantastic reflection on Terminix.
It went well Bill came treated the kitchen and we were less then a week from our quarterly outside service so he took care of that too. I have done business with them since 2005 never had a problem or a bug, at least not for long.
Jim Owen goes above and beyond. He is the best service professional that we have ever had. I wanted to call and tell you because it is not often you find someone that goes this far above and beyond.
