termites extermination southeastern charleston Barrier Pest Services uses the best products to protect your home against termites. There are approximately 200 pest control companies in the Charleston area and the warranties(or termite bonds) vary greatly from one company to the next.

The Best Termite Control and Protection Warranty in the Business

The following 3 items make Barrier Pest Services warranty the best in the business:

  1. For 99% of the homes that we treat, we can provide a damage repair warranty.
    Damage repair is one of the most important features of our termite control warranty. If subterranean termites cause new damage to your home, we’ll fix this damage at no charge to you. If termites reinfest the structure, many companies will only cover retreatment of your home and your homeowner’s insurance will not cover subterranean termite damage. If your home has previous termite damage, a moisture problem, or if all areas are not accessible, your home might only qualify for our retreatment warranty.
  2. All of our termite contracts cover against Formosan subterranean termites.
    Originally from China, the Formosan subterranean termite(Coptotermes formosanus) is a species that first appeared in the Charleston area in the 1950s. This is a subterranean termite can be very destructive to structures. Formosan termites are capable of storing water in carton nests in walls and the colony size are 10 times larger than area native Eastern Subterranean termite species(Reticulitermes flavipes). Many companies have chosen to exclude coverage for Formosan termites or charge additional fees for this protection. By using the best products for all of our treatments, we can include coverage for all subterranean termites.
  3. Our warranties are lifetime and fully transferable.
    Once we treat your home, we will inspect it annually. Our termite bonds renew annually, but we do not limit the renewal period to 5 or 10 years. Most companies will charge a yearly renewal and then will charge for the retreatment of your home. When you renew your warranty yearly with Barrier Pest Services, we will cover retreatments at any time.

Termite Treatments

Conventional Liquid Treatment

Termiticides have come a long way. In the past, all termiticides had a strong odor and termites could detect where the product was applied. They would often come through in the gaps in the chemical barrier and would be able to infest the home. We are proud to offer Termidor termiticide to treat existing homes.

Termidor is remarkable in its composition that is odorless and undetectable to termites. It is very effective for preventative and remedial treatments of homes. Termidor is a long lasting product that has proven its capabilities against Formosan termites. Termidor has a reduced application label that allows less product to be applied.

Termite Bait System

Termite-Baiting-System

Termite baiting systems typically use a wood cellulose product with a slow-acting, insect growth regulator which disrupts the normal growth of termites.

For many years, liquid termiticides were the only treatment option. Termite bait stations became available in 1995. Bait stations are installed on the exterior of the home. As termites forage for food, they MAY encounter these stations. The termites feed on the bait and take the bait back to the colony. Once the other termites feed on the bait, the colony may be eliminated.

In order to be effective, bait systems must be maintained regularly. We offer Advance Bait Systems in conjunction with an exterior Termidor treatment. We usually recommend this two fold treatment if the home has an inaccessible crawlspace or a complete liquid treatment would not be possible due to construction design.

Annual Inspections

Once we treat your home, we’ll inspect the home once a year. We may be the only inspector at your home annually and will look for not only termites, but also issues that might contribute to moisture and termite problems.

For a slab home, we will inspect all areas of the ground floor and the exterior of the home.

For crawlspace homes, we inspect the crawlspace, the interior of any slab areas and the exterior of the home. Inspection of the crawlspace includes identifying any leaking pipes or duct work and other problems. We’ll also check moisture content of the wood members in the crawlspace.

We provide a written inspection report on every visit as well as any recommendations.
