Termite Control Services

We Can Give You Peace of Mind in Protecting One of Your Most Valuable Assets

Termite control via fumigation tent in Williamsburg, VATermite colonies systematically destroy millions of dollars worth of property annually in this country. One subterranean termite colony can eat one cup of wood per day and cause $2000 to $3000 per year in damage to an average size home. We believe that termites rank near the top of the threat list for your home. In fact, Hampton Roads is ranked 2nd in the nation for termite damage per square mile. We were one of the first of only a few companies in this area to be certified to use the revolutionary Termidor solution. Termidor is not detected by the termites yet transfers like a domino effect by contact with other termites getting down into the colony itself. The manufacturer guarantees that the entire colony is dead in three months or less.

Termite Control Warranty

What is a Termite Control Warranty and why is it important to you?
A Termite Control Warranty provides protection and coverage of your home should a termite infestation occur. It covers at no additional cost, material and labor to treat the affected areas. Note that once you have had Termites the signs or the infestation may remain and when you sell or refinance those signs may be misinterpreted and cause you to pay for another treatment. It should be renewed every year just in case something else shows up like moisture, powder post beetles, woodbores, etc.

Why a Termite Control Warranty is important to new construction owners.
It is important for you to know that builders do not warrant subterranean termite control for longer than 1 year from the date of closing on new homes. Newly constructed homes develop termite infestations just as readily as existing homes.

How to ensure you have termite control warranty coverage.
This is a time-sensitive issue. Statistics reveal your home will most probably have a termite infestation in the future. We can inspect your home and control treatment on your property. It’s inexpensive, it offers peace of mind and it saves you thousands of dollars in the years ahead. This coverage is renewable from year to year and transferable to your buyer in the future.

They Are Coming!

Have you noticed flying ants or termites swarming around at certain times of the year? Termite colonies systematically destroy millions of dollars worth of property annually in this country. We believe that termites rank near the top of the public enemy list. In fact, Hampton Roads is ranked second in the nation for termite damage per square mile. Commonwealth Exterminating is one of only a few companies in this area certified to use the revolutionary Termidor solution.

With Termidor, termites are killed dead. No excuses and two to six times faster than bait systems. Termidor is not a bait. Once termites come into contact with Termidor, they carry it back to the colony on their bodies. Every other termite they contact will itself become a carrier, contacting and infecting others. This is known as “the transfer effect.” Government and other tests in the U.S. and abroad have shown that in six to eight years there has been no break or reduction in Termidor’s effectiveness at very low application rates and it’s still going! Typically, when your pest control inspector from Commonwealth Exterminating Co. applies Termidor, the active ingredient fipromil will be just 0.06%. That’s a lot lower than the old-fashioned termicides and less than most insecticides. Termidor also binds to the soil, so there is no leaching through rainfall or irrigation and it’s 100% effective with “No Excuses-No Hassles.”
