Termites are the most destructive pest that you are likely to encounter in California. These tiny pests cause billions of dollars’ worth of damage throughout the United States every year. People are often surprised to find that termite damage is not covered under their homeowner’s insurance. You leave yourself exposed to serious financial risk if you allow a termite infestation to remain in your home. In order to protect your home and finances from serious damage, you need to take effective action against termites as soon as you can. There are several types of termite treatments that are available. Tent fumigation is one of the most common and recognizable treatment options.
Tent fumigation is thorough
Tent fumigation is a thorough treatment option for termites. The design of tent fumigation allows the fumigant to permeate every nook and cranny of your home. The furthest reaches of your property will be exposed to the termite treatment as long as they are encapsulated in the tent. Even if there are termites in your walls and floors, tent fumigation is a thorough treatment option.
Tent fumigation is effective
Tent fumigation is an effective treatment option for termites. Nixtermite uses Vikane® gas in all of our tent fumigations. Vikane® gas can get to all of the areas where termites are active – even inside of your walls – and kill them off. The tent fumigation services that you receive from Nixtermite are guaranteed to eliminate termites and provide you with a termite-free home.
Tent fumigation is safe
Tent fumigation is a safe treatment option for drywood termites. Vikane® gas is an inorganic gas that dissipates completely from your home after fumigation. This means that the gas does not leave behind any residue on the surfaces inside your home. You can confidently return to your home and resume normal use after a tent fumigation with Vikane® gas. In addition, tent fumigation is a process that is closely regulated by the state of California. Any company that provides tent fumigation is required to be registered with the Structural Pest Control Board and to follow a strict code of conduct when providing tent fumigation services.
If you have a termite infestation in your home, tent fumigation is a treatment option you should consider. Tent fumigation can completely eradicate termites from your property – even if you have a widespread infestation. The first step in the process of tent fumigation is to get a professional termite inspection. The inspector will identify the type of termites that have infested your home and determine if tent fumigation is the most appropriate treatment option. If you do need tent fumigation, there is some prep work you will have to do in the days leading up to the treatment. Nixtermite will provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare your home before treatment. Get the process started by reaching out to Nixtermite and scheduling an inspection.
