Helping West Jefferson Since 1966
Termites have been a thorn in West Jefferson homeowners side since the first house was built within the town borders—but A-1 Pest Control has been helping those homeowners solve that problem since 1966. That means we have over five decades of experience with termite control, prevention, and extermination, and we work each and every day to make sure we are still using the latest and greatest technology available.
Superior Termite Control
West Jefferson—like all other North Carolina towns—is well-acquainted with humidity and heat. Unfortunately, these conditions are perfect for termites to thrive, consuming everything from floors to walls to furniture. Because we believe that your home should be a haven, our team is passionate about termite control that keeps the structure of your space sound.
Whether you’re looking to prevent an infestation with a proactive treatment, have your home inspected to be sure it’s termite-free, or rid yourself of an existing infestation, A-1 can custom build a plan for you.
Proudly Serving the Following Cities:
From residential to commercial, and from new builds to remodels, A-1 can help you take the steps to stop a termite colony before it even begins.
Homeowners in West Jefferson working on building their own homes here will have to, at some point, have some type of termite protection completed. We have the tools to keep you and your home up-to-code, so that this step won’t delay or prevent any part of your project. And, ff you’re simply remodeling your home and want to use this opportunity to prevent any future infestations, that same technology can be implemented in even an older home.
So how do we do it? The exact plan of action depends on your needs and the specifics of your space, but we often turn to one of our most popular termite prevention tools: Termidor. This liquid treatment is used to control Eastern subterranean termites—the type most commonly found in North Carolina—by creating a barrier to entry outside your home. Termidor is applied around your homes foundation, and immediately provides a level of protection. It works like this: When termites eat or walk through the barrier, the Termidor begins to take effect, and they begin to die. If they do make it back to any other members of the colony, they spread the treatment to them as well, eventually eliminating the entire colony.
Our top priority is the safety and happiness of our customers, which is why tools like Termidor, which is safe for humans and animals to be around, are ideal for our services.
If you already have an active termite infestation in your home, it may be too late to take preventative measures; but there are options for the safe and effective removal of these pests. Not sure whether or not you have a problem? Here are some of the most common signs that you may have termites:
- 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 notice any of these signs, give us a call at A-1 ASAP. We have the expertise and tools to safely eliminate the infestation, so you can get back to resting easy.
While Termidor is great for prevention, our team is also certified to use Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System for eradication This certification allows us to properly inspect your home to find the spots most commonly targeted by termites, where the Sentricon bait-traps will be carefully placed.
These in-ground bait traps are non-toxic to humans. Plus, the termiticide is full encased, and the trap only able to be opened with a key, so you don’t have to worry about exposure. A-1 can consistently check these traps to be sure that they are effectively doing their jobs—call us today to learn about our monthly pest control plans for continued protection.
