subterranean termites

Coby is the Tentless Termite Terminator

I have had the opportunity to provide my services to many home and business owners, primarily using tentless termite treatments. Two types of termites plague wooden structures here in Tampa Bay: subterranean and dry wood.

Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control have a variety of treatment solutions to exterminate these pests.

Subterranean – These ground-dwellers face certain death when we dig 4”x6” trenches around homes and structures, and we apply one of three products that the termites carry back to their colonies and spread to their peers. This method is proven effective to transfer the insecticide to the colonies, or render their jaws paralyzed so they are unable to eat and survive.

Monitoring stations are very effective observation tools, which allow us to check for further termite activity or re-infestation. These stations are checked every three months, as a means of keeping your home or office termite-free.

Dry Wood – These are a bit more challenging to control. Often, I see massive swarms of termites, especially in older neighborhoods, where they can appear like a cloud. You can tell a home is infested with dry wood termites when it is wrapped up like a Christmas present, tented for noxious gases to penetrate cracks, crevices and places standard treatments do not cover.

The issue with tented termite treatments is the short-term effectiveness. There is also the need for you to remove yourselves, your family, pets, food, medication and cosmetics for a minimum of 72 hours. When you can safely re-enter your home, so can the termites.

Tentless termite treatments are more effective, because the high pressure foam used penetrates the wood, lasting a much longer term. In most cases, all bare wood can be treated, including attics, cabinets, walls, doors, crawl spaces, and porches.

Two Types of Termites Infest Homes in Pinellas County, FL

As owner of Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control, I have experienced two types of termite infestations in Pinellas County. These wood-destroying devils are detrimental to your home and adjacent structures, silently devouring wood and stucco, leaving subtle hints of their presence, while costing you dearly.

Dry Wood Termites feast on dry wood. They can survive and thrive on the minimal amounts of moisture in dry wood for periods of time that can span years.

Signs you may have dry wood termites include tiny wings that have fallen from older termites (five years-old) littering your home; and trails or piles of what appear to be coffee grounds of a lighter color, indicative of termite waste.

Subterranean Termites are ground dwellers, and can be found in mulch, dirt and mud around the home. These termites come from colonies as large as 60,000 to several million. They are usually found in early spring, between mid-January and mid-March, and usually earlier in the day, 10 AM – 2 PM. They love temps that rise to or linger at or above 70 degrees; and they are partial to humid climates and moisture, which is why rain and dewfall can be factors to infestations under a house, in walls and even in stucco.

Subterranean termites resemble small white worms or maggots; they are winged, ant-like insects; and they appear in swarms that can look like a cloud of smoke.

Tentless Termite Treatments in Hillsborough

Our primary goal at Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control is to create a safe, pest-free environment, protecting your family, as well as your most important investment: your home. TENTLESS TERMITE treatments in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco Counties in Florida is our specialty, and we have 30 years of experience in the industry to prove it!

Tenting a home for fumigation and/or applications of intense heat to eliminate termites is not cheap or convenient and it is only good for existing termites, not for future infestations. It requires the occupants leave the premises for a minimum of 72 hours, as well as remove all pets, plants, food, medicine, and cosmetics before treatment processes can even begin.

Furthermore, if you have a gas stove or fireplace, the natural gas must be shut-off for the duration of the tenting, and all pilot lights must be extinguished…just another inconvenience.

TENTLESS TERMITE treatments are preferred by homeowners in greater Tampa Bay, because they are much more cost-effective, less toxic to your home environment; and your family, pets and plants can safely remain in your residence while treatments are applied.

A special liquid insecticide is sprayed into walls, behind cabinets, and into cracks and crevices leading to dry wood surfaces throughout the interior and exterior of your home that smokey brown termites devour. The termites carry the insecticide back to their colonies where they all die. Moreover, the insecticide remains and soaks into the wood structures to inhibit the return of these destructive, wood-loving bugs for an extended period of time.

For subterranean (ground-dwelling) termites, an insecticide is sprayed along the ground surrounding your home, which the little critters will carry back to their colonies, rendering certain death to what can be hundreds of thousands of inhabitants.

If you’ve got a problem with termites, or any other pest…or you simply have a question…call Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control today at 727-498-1977, and ask for Coby. He’ll be happy to speak with you anytime!
