Considering Structural Fumigation if You Have a Termite Problem

Posted on Apr 7, 2017 3:00:00 AM by Stephanie Morgan

Considering Structural Fumigation if You Have a Termite Problem | San Joaquin Pest ControlStructural fumigation is a major process that is only done in response to a serious infestation. One of the most common types of infestations treated with structural fumigation is termites. But, is it really necessary to take such drastic measures to get rid of termites? Structural fumigation is not the only option for eradicating termites but it could be the most effective option if you have a severe problem. There are three main reasons why it could be in your best interest to consider structural fumigation for your termite problem.

  1. Termites are difficult to detect.

If you see a roach or mouse scurry across your kitchen floor then you know that you have a problem with that type of pest. How do you know when you have a termite problem? There are some signs that you can look for but they are generally much more difficult to detect than other types of pests. If you discover a termite problem and treat it on your own there is a high possibility that you could miss areas that are infested. This could be due to your inexperience with termite infestations or the fact that these pests can invade the areas of your home that are impossible for you to reach. Structural fumigation will be able to reach all areas of your home; even the ones that you did not realize were infested with termites.

  1. Termites can cause considerable damage.

What is the big deal about termites? Are they really so horrible that you need to go to the trouble of having your home tented and fumigated? The big deal about termites is the amount of damage that they can cause to your home. We are not talking about cosmetic damage here; we are talking about structural damage that can lead to costly repairs in the future. Termites can silently and continuously eat away at the structure of your home if you do not completely eradicate them. They will not take a break until you take serious action and structural fumigation is one of your options.

  1. Termites are difficult to eradicate.

One of the major reasons structural fumigation is often used to treat termites is that they are difficult to eradicate. They can get under your home and inside your walls. This makes it difficult to effectively treat them with spray methods that work for other types of infestations. If your termite infestation is widespread then structural fumigation may be the only viable option.

You do not have to decide if structural fumigation is the best option on your own. An experienced pest control professional will be able to assess your situation and recommend the best course of treatment. If structural fumigation is your best option you can be confident that it is a treatment that will get to all of the hard-to-reach places in your home.
