Helping Blowing Rock Since 1966
A-1 Pest Control has been serving western North Carolina, including homeowners in Blowing Rock, for more than 50 years. In that time, we’ve provided and perfected services including treatments for the prevention, control, and extermination of termites.
If you’re a homeowner in Blowing Rock dealing with termites, you’re not alone: the warm climate that makes living here so ideal for much of the year is also ideal for termites to breed and swarm, unfortunately. Whether you want to take preventative action against these pests before they become a problem, or you have an active infestation you need to put a stop to, A-1 Pest Control has a solution.
Effective Termite Control
Your home should be a peaceful place to rest, relax, live, and play—it shouldn’t be a source of stress. Without termite control, though, that’s exactly what it can turn into. At A-1 we have decades of experience and the most up-to-date technology, and we put all of that to work to make sure your home and family stay safe.
In Bowling Green, we most often see Eastern subterranean termites. These insects spend 24 hours a day, seven days a week consuming wood of all types, including that of your floor, walls, and furniture. When it comes to controlling these infestations, there are a few especially effective options.
Proudly Serving the Following Cities:
If you are building a new home, or moving into a newly constructed building, termite prevention is a crucial part of maintaining it. Similarly, if you are remodeling an older home without an infestation, it’s never too late to start using termite prevention tools.
A-1 offers pre-treatment services for both residential and commercial structures, which can address the wood and soil that make up and surround your home to keep termites out. Yearly maintenance, like that offered in several of our A-1 Pest Control plans, keeps them out by refreshing the barrier surrounding your home.
That barrier is created by a system called Termidor, one of the most popular choices in the nation for the prevention and elimination of termites. This liquid treatment is first placed around the perimeter of your house. As termites come into contact with the border, they eat or walk through it, which begins to poison them. If they make it back to the colony, they then spread the Termidor treatment to the others, eliminating each member.
If you see any of the following in your home, it may be a sign that you have a current termite infestation:
- Drywall that appears to be drooping
- Peeling or cracking paint
- A hollow sound when knocking on the walls
- Small, pinpoint-sized holes in the wall
- Buckling wood floors
- Crumbling wood
- Piles of small wings left behind (particularly on windowsills!)
- Mud tubes around the base of the house
If this is the case, there are solutions for quick and effective extermination. A-1 Pest Control offers Blowing Rock residents a treatment called the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System. Our team members are trained specialists who know exactly how to evaluate your property and problem, and create a plan of action to address the problem.
In-ground bait traps are placed in the areas of your home that see the most termite activity. These traps contain a bait that halts the maturation process, eventually leading to the destruction of the entire colony. The bait traps are locked with a key, which also prevents children and pets from getting into them. These traps can be checked annually, cleaned out and disposed of, and your home then inspected to be sure the infestation has been completely eradicated.
