Nozzle's Termite Solutions Stop Termite Damage In South FL
Termites cause several billion dollars a year in termite damage across the United States. Termites are very destructive pests and do a considerable amount of damage to a structure before they are detected. Because of their insatiable appetite, termite prevention is imperative. Homeowners Insurance does not cover termite damage or treatment, which makes it even more imperative to take precautionary steps to protect your home from wood-destroying organisms. Nozzle Nolen offers great services to prevent both subterranean termites and drywood termites from invading homes and businesses in West Palm Beach and surrounding areas.
South Florida Termites & Treatment Options
The southeastern states, including Florida, have the highest rates of termite infestation. It’s estimated that one in every five homes have been infested with termites, or will be infested at some point. There are two main types of termites living in Florida that you need to protect your property against: subterranean termites and drywood termites. Nozzle Nolen offers several preventative and curative termite treatment options in South Florida. Termite control services include termite baiting systems, termite detection systems, traditional tenting, and a vault for portable items, such as furniture. Our preventative treatment options are extremely safe and environmentally sensitive. Plus, Nozzle Nolen offers the best termite guarantee with our NO FINE PRINT Million Dollar Guarantee!
Nozzle Nolen's termite control services include:
An extensive inspection and consultation: During the inspection, your Nozzle Nolen technician will extensively evaluate anything on your property that may create conducive conditions for a termite infestation, such as moisture in the soil around the home, wood to ground contact, and roof and plumbing leaks.
Preventative treatment: Then, during the preventative treatment, our expert technician will inspect for existing termite evidence, identify conducive conditions, and apply a preventative termite treatment that comes with a one-year guarantee.
Nozzle Nolen’s services are customized based on the results of your free inspection. All termite control services are backed by the Nozzle Nolen Guarantee: if termites come back within 1 year, so do we…free of charge of course.
What do drywood termites look like?
Drywood termites are small and have three separate castes within their colonies. However, unlike the subterranean termites the workers, soldiers, and reproductives are not easily distinguished.
When are drywood termites active?
Drywood termites are a year round concern in Florida with an increase of activity in the spring and early summer when they swarm.
Treatment Options for Drywood Termites
The most effective way to eliminate a drywood termite infestation is through tent fumigation. The fumigant is a non-residual product; once the tent is removed, all items within your home are residue-free and do not need to be washed or cleaned. Tent fumigation is also available for termite infestations on boats.
Tape And Seal Fumigation
Available for single-story buildings, single-family homes and also yachts, tape and seal fumigation is effective at resolving termite infestations without having to tent the whole structure. Our fumigation experts will seal the structure including vents and vent pipes to ensure that the fumigant is contained to the infested property and monitored using state-of-the-art equipment.
Vault fumigation protects your valuable furniture, mattresses or other portable items from bed bugs, powder post beetles, termites and other wood-destroying pests. Vault fumigation treatments are done out of our West Palm Beach location in Florida.
Tentless treatments are ideal for those who only need a localized treatment for a drywood termite infestation. Call to see if your home qualifies for this treatment option.
What do subterranean termites look like?
There are three different divisions, or castes, of subterranean termites in a colony; workers, soldiers, and reproductives.
When are subterranean termites active?
Subterranean termites are active throughout the year with swarming in the spring.
Treatment Options for Subterranean Termites
Advance Termite Baiting System
The Advance Termite Baiting System meets the criteria for a smart termite solution and is a pet-friendly and environmentally sound treatment for subterranean termites around your home. Bait stations with the inactive ingredient cartridges are placed around your property to monitor for the presence of termites. When Nozzle Nolen returns to inspect the stations and termites are discovered in a bait station, the cartridge is then replaced with a termite bait cartridge that contains the active ingredient. The termites will then eat and share the bait with the colony. The termite colony then starts to die and is eventually is eliminated. Once the colony has died, we continue monitoring with a new inspection cartridge.
Complete termite colony elimination in 120 days or less.
Less invasive and intrusive (no drilling, dust, liquid chemicals or noise).
Sound environmental choice.
Only a few hours of install time.
Termidor® Termite Treatments
A pet-friendly liquid treatment, Termidor is placed around the perimeter of your home or building to create a zone of protection. In order to gain entry, termites must crawl through the product. Termidor is a contact treatment, which contaminates foraging termites once they pass through the liquid. What's more, the termites who have been in contact with Termidor will carry it back to other termites resulting in the complete elimination of the termite colony.
