Local Termite Treatment With The Greenshield Difference

Termites are responsible for 2 billion dollars of property damage every year. Can you guess why the number is so high? 

Because before you realize you have termites, they could have already caused thousands of dollars worth of damage to your home or business.

 These tiny pests can silently destroy wood foundations, support beams, and walls. 

Moreover, insurance companies don’t generally cover termite damage, adding to your financial burden. 

Additionally, termites can damage commercial products, furniture, and other valuable possessions. 

This doesn’t just hurt your wallet, but your heart. To safeguard your property, it’s crucial to stay vigilant against termites, and Greenshield Home & Pest Solutions in Ashland, VA, is here to help. 

With our termite inspection, treatment, and future prevention/warranties, you will keep your home safe when you choose us.

The Warning Signs Termites Have Invaded Your Home

Unlike other pests, termites don’t bite you or leave behind eggs. So how do you know you have termites? Here’s a few warning signs termites have invaded your home.

  • Mud Tubes: The presence of mud-like tubes on exterior walls, foundations, or wooden structures, used by termites as a pathway between their nest and food sources.
  • Hollow-Sounding Wood: Tapping wooden surfaces and hearing a hollow or papery sound, indicating termite damage within the structure.
  • Sagging Floors or Ceilings: Sagging or buckling of floors, ceilings, or walls due to termite damage in load-bearing wooden structures.
  • Bubbling or Uneven Paint: Formation of blister-like bubbles or uneven paint on wooden surfaces caused by termite activity beneath the paint layer.
  • Visible Termite Nests: Spotting termite nests in tree stumps, firewood piles, or other wooden debris near the property, indicating potential infestation.

The Dangers Of Not Controlling Termite Populations In Your Home

Eastern Subterranean Termites

Eastern Subterranean Termites are translucent gray/brown with longer bodies, heads, and pinchers. They are our native species here in Virginia. These termites live, forage, and eat below ground in colonies ranging from 20,000 – 500,000. They like to attack homes by connecting a large network of tunnels, mud, or shelter tubes that protect them from the outside as they travel to the house.

A Formosan Termite

Formosan Termites

Formosan Termites are an invasive species in the Southern United States. The termite originated in Taiwan and was first detected in the USA in 1960. It has spread around the world and has a translucent orange color. Often referred to as “super termites”, they are the most voracious and devious of all termites. They can chew through wood, flooring, and wallpaper unnoticed.

Termite Treatment & Control: Frequently Asked Questions

Our office is in Ashland, VA, but we provide termite inspections and treatment all over Central, VA. That includes all the localities in Hanover County, VA, and the rest of the Richmond Metro Area.

The average cost of termite treatment in the United States is $575. However, based on where you live, the size of the property, and the extent of the infestation, the price can vary. Estimates show the price can range from $230 – $930 (not including damage repairs). 

We recommend an annual termite inspection and treatment to be sure your home or commercial property is safe. This is the best decision, in the long run, to help you avoid expensive repairs.

This depends on the type of treatment. If you use bait stations, you have to wait for the termites to bring the poison back to the colony and infect the other termites. Liquid treatments usually last a few years. In the end, how long a single treatment lasts depends on how big and rooted the infestation is.

Termites have soft bodies, pinchers, and straight antennae. They are white to light brown in color, with worker termites appearing light in color while swarming termites are darker.

When a termite colony reaches capacity, the termites prepare to expand. The termites will start producing winged termites called “alates.” The Alates’ job is to fly and find another nesting site. When you start to see swarmers around your home, it’s usually a sign the infestation has already taken root.
