Termites in the United States cause somewhere between 5 and 10 billion dollars in damage to structures annually. The Shenandoah valley, because the climate, is in a part of the country where termites are very active. An area which is considered to have a lot of termite activity in comparison to areas farther north. This is because we have a warm and temperate climate. We also get substantial amounts of rain per year.
For millions of years termites thrived in Virginia because of these conditions and an abundance of wood from the native trees. B&C Exterminating offers free inspections and advanced treatments for termites in Roanoke, Salem and Vinton Virginia as well as the surrounding areas.
When you invest in termite protection for your home, you are investing in the protection of your biggest investment. B&C Exterminating has been inspecting, treating and providing a warranty termite infestations since 1972 and is the pest control company you can trust to get the job done.
Every product B&C utilizes for termite extermination is EPA approved. B&C Exterminating uses two main insecticides to prevent termites from attacking your home. The best is Fipronil (Termidor) for termite protection. It is the only product on the market that has been 100 percent effective in all the USDA test sites. It is the best termite treatment to date. We also offer termite treatments using Imidacloprid which is also an excellent pesticide and a little more budget friendly.
How some exterminating companies save money on termite protection at your expense.
- They inject the treatment at intervals farther apart than 12". Twelve inch intervals provides the best barrier.
- They do not apply chemical at the label rate. There are companies that will reduce the volume of chemical that is needed to give a complete and uninterrupted treated zone around the house, as well as mix the chemical at a weaker rate than you are supposed to. Making the chemical mix weak will affect how long it will last.
- Use of older, less effective, but less expensive chemistry. There are some products on the market which are much cheaper than Termidor, however they do not control termites 100% of the time. Some pyrethroid class chemicals with the active ingredients permethrin or cypermethrin actually fail to control termites as often as 25 percent of the time. Termidor is the only product that has been 100 percent effective, with no exceptions, however it is as much as 5 to 6 times more costly.
B&C Exterminating follows the Termidor label directions exactly to insure that the protection is complete, effective and within the boundary of the law. We stand behind our work and our warranty. This is why we have been successfully treating termites in Virginia for over 40 years.
