If you see flying insects inside your house during the springtime, they are most likely subterranean termites. Call us for a free inspection to identify them. Termites often look like flying ants.
Termites are a problem in every state except Alaska and are a very real concern for homeowners, which brings about over 5 billion dollars worth of damage. Five Star Pest Control offers a variety of methods for the protection of your home.
Our first recommendation is the use of Termidor ®. Termidor ® is a long-term and environmentally safe response to termites. The active ingredient in Termidor ® is fipronil (which has been used since 1995 for flea and tick control on millions of dogs and cats). To termites, it is lethal by both contact and ingestion, a dual mode of action which is unique. Termidor ® is also non-repellent, which means termites remain unaware of its presence while forging in a treated area. Termidor ® is odorless and fully approved by the EPA as well as other governments around the world.
Protect your home before termites infest. Five Star Pest Control offers a variety of termite protection plans to suit anyone’s needs. After a completed and thorough inspection of your home, we can find one just for you.
Some limitations and restrictions may apply
Here are some additional facts you’ll find interesting:
Termidor does not require any special new equipment for application. It uses an industry-standard technique that is widely accepted.
One hundred gallons of diluted Termidor solution contains only 8.4 ounces of the active ingredient.*
Termidor isn’t affected by debris, dryness, insects, or fungal decay.
The odds of termites foraging or tunneling through a Termidor-treated zone are much greater than running into a bait/monitoring station.
Termidor is effective throughout the U.S. and abroad, with all types of soil, in all kinds of climates, and on many species of termites.
*.06 rate WG formulation
Five Star Pest Control also offers baiting solutions and a combination of both depending on the unique condition of your home.
The cost for termite treatments is based on the size and construction of your house, so we must inspect your home to give you an estimate for the treatment. All termite treatments come with a one-year warranty which stays with the property.
This warranty is renewable on a yearly basis.
Five Star Pest Control uses a dual method of treatment. First, we apply a larvicide to all standing water on and adjacent to your property to stop mosquitoes from emerging. Then we apply pyrethrum(for an instant knockdown effect which breaks down in sunlight in about 2 to 4 hours) and residue to all trees, shrubs, and shaded places where mosquitoes rest and hide. Depending on the conditions, this residue continues to be effective for a month.
Our Most Popular Small-Scale Mosquito Control Services Include:
Residential homeowners maintenance | Fairs | Concerts | Backyard Weddings | Home Parties | Barbeques | Corporate Events | Adult & Larval Spot-Treatment
Traditional tried-and-true methods of tick control involve the strategic application of pesticides after a careful survey of your property’s needs. We don’t need to remind you how much of a health hazard deer ticks can be.
Five Star Pest Control can help protect your family from tick-borne illnesses. With the use of approved products, tick populations can be suppressed by 90% or more, thus reducing your chances of contracting diseases in your own yard.
As always, we employ the latest advancements in ecologically responsible tactics and materials, keeping the environment and your family our number one concern.
Carpenter Ant Control
Carpenter Ants are wood-destroying insects; The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that there is over 1 Billion Dollars worth of homeowner’s damage caused by these wood-destroying insects each year. When Carpenter Ants invade a structure, they hollow out galleries in the wood. The smooth, clean, sculptured appearance of their nesting galleries is a characteristic of Carpenter Ants-thus their name. This is an interesting point, but these perfect galleries can diminish the structural integrity of your home. That can mean damage to your home.
While carpenter ants don’t eat wood, they will feed on nearly anything people eat, particularly sweets and meats. They will also feed on other insects.
98% of all Carpenter Ant treatments can be completed without applying any pesticides inside your home. A perimeter treatment and the use of an ant bait gel inside where they are seen, typically in kitchens, bathrooms, sliding doors, and fireplaces. A second perimeter treatment is conducted approximately three months later to provide you with continuous protection. All warranties offered are renewable on a year-by-year basis.
What are carpenter ants?
Carpenter Ants are social insects that live in colonies. These colonies can grow to over 4000 insects in a single nest. Many times in a building or home, carpenter ants will establish satellite colonies. This can make it difficult to locate the sources of infestation.
How do they get into my house?
Carpenter Ants can enter your home while searching for food, moisture and shelter in a variety of ways. These include:
- Crawling up the foundation and finding an entry point
- Dropping from tree branches onto your roof
- Crossing utility wires that lead into your house
- Being brought in on firewood or other items
- Or just by walking in the front door
