Termite Control & Treatment Services for Annandale, VA
Why Should I Get Professional Termite Treatment?
Without professional treatment, termite colonies can live throughout your property for a long time without your knowledge. Termites tend to swarm in the warmer months, especially in the morning. This time of year is ideal to take preventative measures, as termites claim new groups in homes. Springy lumber like that of the Douglas fir is the favorite dish for termites. The colony hollows the wood into a shell. When they do this in your property, its structural stability is more likely to be damaged.
Over one in five homes in high activity regions like Annandale have had termites or can be infested with termites. Termites are difficult to see because they come into buildings through tiny gaps in flooring, patios and cracks in concrete. When you uncover a colony in your home, leave them alone. When touched, the colony will leave the area and relocate deeper into your home to avoid being found again.
Dampened wood is the optimal place for termites to colonize in. The areas in your home that have constant contact with moisture are prime real estate for them to flourish. Virginia is also home to dry-wood termites, which live in the baseboards, trim, windows and door frames of your house. They devour the cellulose found in plant fibers as they migrate along the wood grain.

- Get rid of unnecessary cellulose materials (paper, wood, cotton, etc.) in and around your home, especially in your crawl spaces.
- Remove landscaping mulch and replace it with cellulose-free alternatives. If you do have mulch in your yard, make sure you keep a 6-inch gap between your mulch and the foundation of your home. This could reduce the possibility of termite intrusion.
- Keep your siding, especially if it’s wood siding, at least six inches above the ground.
- Make sure gutters and other drainage systems are keeping water away from your home.
- Keep moisture out of basements and crawl spaces.
- Make sure you don’t have leaky plumbing fixtures or AC condensation lines.
- Seal off the gaps around utility lines like water, sewer, natural gas, and electrical lines. This will limit the termites’ opportunity to get into your home.
- Make sure there is no contact between wood and ground. Whenever there is wood in direct contact with dirt, there is a chance for a termite infestation.
