How We Protect Your Home or Commercial Building and Control Against Termites
Bigham Pest Services uses the most effective techniques and the best products on the market when eradicating termites and protecting your home or commercial building against an infestation. Our strategies include Trelona Bait Stations and treating the soil around your foundation and in any subareas with Termidor HE.
Trelona Bait Stations
Trelona is a high grade cellulose material that has been compressed into tablets. Developed by BASF, Trelona compressed termite bait is installed in-ground on your property at in bait stations using the Trelona Advance® Termite Bait System (ATBS).
This system provides effective protection that involves placement and monitoring with scheduled inspections.
The Trelona ATBS design can work fast. In less than two months, termites will consume the bait from the stations and share it with the termite population to control subterranean activity for on-going termite protection.
The time to fully treat and achieve control of termite activity will vary depending on a number of factors such as the size of the colony, location of the colony, and environmental conditions found on the property. When structural damage already exists or damage is caused while pre-existing termites continue to feed, a more aggressive approach using a termiticide, such as Termidor HE Program, may be necessary.
Liquid Termidor HE
At Bigham Pest Services we are licensed and highly-trained in applying high-efficiency Termidor, commonly referred as Termidor HE System. Termidor HE provides continuous termite treatment in zones to prevent infestations in wood for maximum protection. It is extremelhy effective against a variety of subterranean, arboreal, drywood, and dampwood termites. It works under a wide range of soil types, environmental conditions, and application techniques. The application involved rodding and or trenching around the complete perimeter of the home or structure. This may involve drilling through the driveway and other concrete pads around the foundation. We also treat any subareas beneath your home. This may require trenching around piers and next to inner walls of the foundation.
