Termite Control



Most pest companies offer either a "Termite Bait" or a "Liquid Barrier" treatment. Which is best ? Which is the most effective ? Which treatment will give you the best value for your money ? That depends. South Florida is home to both drywood and subterranean termites.

Drywood Termites

Drywood Unlike subterranean termites, which built colonies in the soil, drywood termite colonies do not need contact with soil moisture or any other water source. As their name suggests, drywood termites occur in dry wood that may be above ground level. Drywood termites build colonies in structural wood such as fence and utility posts, furniture, moldings, door and window frames, and so forth. finding these termites can be difficult during routine pest and dry-rot inspections. Therefore, one of the best ways to identify an active infestation is the presence of fecal pellets. Drywood termite treatment involves spot treating infected areas or injecting the identified infested galleries with liquid or foam termiticides or more common and more effective - tarping the building and gas fumigating.

Subterranean Termites

The eastern subterranean termite has caused untold amounts of damage through the centuries. A mature colony of these destructive pests can include anywhere from 20,000 to more than five million workers. Queens in eastern subterranean colonies can lay anywhere from 5,000 to 10,000 eggs per year, which means that the problem intensifies quickly. These colonies are made up of three distinct castes of termites: soldiers, workers and reproductive termites. To find eastern subterranean termites, you shouldn't have to dig too deeply. They are usually found at or below ground level, and they thrive in the soil but live off of materials like wood and cardboard. Liquid Soil Barrier treatments or baiting sysems such as Sentricon® System with Always Active technology are effective in treatment and prevention of subterranean termites.

Protection you can trust
Island Environmental understands that your home is one of your biggest investments. Termite infestations can cause homeowners and insurance companies hundreds of millions of dollars annually. However, with regular termite inspections by trained professionals, you can protect your home or business by dealing with termites before a complete infestation occurs. If you think you may have a termite problem on your hands, give us a call. We will come out to inspect and treat your property promptly.
Protect your home from a threat you can't see
Don't wait until the effects are visible. Because termites generally gain access to your home from access points in or near the foundation and because they attack wood from the inside out, early detection requires the skills of a trained termite inspector. We can detect the presence of termite colonies before they have a chance to harm your residence, or even become visible to you. Our trained and experienced technicians will inspect interior and exterior surfaces for termite activity as well as inspect the soil around the foundation to detect subterranean termites.
We offer many service plans for all types of termite needs.
