Helping Lenoir Since 1966
Nothing throws off your routine quite like a termite infestation. These little pests threaten both your home’s structure and your day-to-day peace, and getting rid of them can be almost as frustrating as the little mites themselves.
There’s good news for homeowners in Lenoir dealing with termites, or looking to take preventative steps to avoid them: you don’t have to go it alone. A-1 Pest Control offers services for effective termite control, prevention, and extermination—to keep your house feeling like home.
Effective Termite Control
Homeowners in Lenoir enjoy everything the charming town has to offer, from stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, to an ever-growing economy, to annual festivals like the Wood, Fire, Smoke Festival in Downtown. But with all of the luxuries of our beautiful state come a few catches. One of the biggest? Our warm and humid climate is ideal for termites to thrive.

Proudly Serving the Following Cities:
The best plan of action is a proactive one, and A-1 Pest Control has all of the tools and services you need to take preventative action against termites.
If your home is new construction, A-1 Pest Control can perform the termite pre-treatment service required, including addressing soil, slabs, and wood. If you are remodeling an older home, or working on commercial property A-1 can also help with these services.
We utilize a few tried and true methods of prevention, most notably Termidor: one of the most trusted tools for termite control. This liquid treatment control Eastern subterranean termites, by creating an invisible barrier when applied around the foundation of the house. When termites eat, or even simply walk through, the barrier, they begin to die. If the termite makes it back to any others, it then will act as a “carrier” spreading the Termidor throughout the colony and cutting them off at the pass.
If you even begin to suspect that you may have termites in your home, it’s a good idea to get a team of experts out quickly to take a look at the problem. Here are some signs that you might be dealing with an 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 you have noticed these things, don’t panic. A-1 Pest Control has been helping homeowners in Lenoir get rid of termites since 1966.
Our team utilizes only the most effective tools to get the job done. In addition to the Termidor treatment, our professionals are certified Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System specialists. That means that we know exactly how to inspect your property and complete the treatment, which includes in-ground bait stations placed in the areas around your home that see the most termite activity. When termites consume the bait, their maturation process is stopped, which ultimately destroys the entire colony. These bait traps are safe to use around pets and children, and A-1 can conduct a yearly inspection of them to keep your home termite-free.
