Helping Mooresville Since 1966
Mooresville, NC homeowners know better than most how stressful a termite problem can be. While the southern climate has its perks, it also has its drawbacks: for instance, all that warmth and humidity is ideal for termites to thrive.
That’s where A-1 Pest Control comes in. Since 1966, A-1 has provided pest control solutions to western North Carolina homeowners. If you’re building a new home in Mooresville, or remodeling an older structure, we can perform the required termite pre-treatment service to make sure it’s up to par and keep it safe from infestations. If you have an existing termite problem—or even if you just think you might—A-1 can perform an inspection and diagnose the problem, and then get to work designing and implementing the right solution.
Effective Termite Control
Effective termite control in Mooresville can be complicated, as Eastern subterranean termites—the kind most common in Mooresville and the rest of North Carolina—are stubborn and can multiply incredibly quickly.
A-1 Pest Control has decades of experience with these pests, and all of the best tools for controlling them. Two of our most commonly-used solutions are Sentricon and Termidor, though the right treatment for you can best be determined with an inspection by one of our experts.
Proudly Serving the Following Cities:
If you don’t have an active termite infestation in your home, you of course will want to keep it that way. Preventative action is your best bet for keeping your homes structural integrity sound and free of these pests.
In new construction Mooresville homes, we can perform the pre-treatment service, which encompasses wood, slabs, and the soil around and beneath your home. This pretreatment service can also be applied to commercial buildings, and residential buildings that aren’t new but are being remodeled. This treatment can give you some peace of mind that you are protected from any potential termite invasions.
One of our most popular treatments for prevention is Termidor, which has rapidly grown in use across the country for elimination and prevention of termites. This is a liquid treatment that creates a barrier all around the perimeter of your house, so that when termites consume or walk through that barrier they will begin to die. If that member of the colony makes it back to the rest, it will then act as a “carrier” of the Termidor and spread the toxin to the rest of the group, effectively killing the colony.
In some cases, it may be too late to take preventative measures. That doesn’t mean all hope is lost, though. In fact, there are a number of options available through A-1 Pest Control for termite extinction in Mooresville.
One of the most popular is the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System. Our team is trained as specialists when it comes to the use of this treatment, so we know exactly how to inspect and treat your home to address the most pressing issues. In this process, your property is inspected for areas of heightened activity or colonies of termites. Once they are found, in-ground bait stations are placed in these hot spots. These bait traps can only be opened with a key, making them safe for use in areas frequented by children and pets. Once the termites consume the bait, they begin to die, and their maturation process is stopped. This eventually leads to the death of the entire colony, and halts reproduction. These traps can be inspected yearly, to be sure they continue to protect you and your home.
Not sure if you have termites in your home? Here are some things to be on the lookout for:
