Termite Control & Protection
At Orkin, we have experience controlling termites and protecting homes.
We feel there is no better defense against termites than a customized home protection plan from Orkin. After a comprehensive inspection of your home, The Orkin Man™ will prescribe a customized combination of treatment methods designed to help protect what is probably your biggest investment. Orkin bases treatment techniques on your home’s specific construction type because we understand that every home is unique, and not all customers’ needs are the same. Not just for any home, for your home.
Orkin’s mission is to deliver the world’s best value in termite control. You’ll receive written specifications, customized diagrams and an inspection report after your consultation. And, if termites happen to return following your treatment while under our warranty period, we promise to re-treat the problem at no additional charge.*
The Science of Termite Control
See how we use the latest science and technology so we can protect your home with an effective plan suited to your needs.
Don’t Be Eaten Out Of House And Home.
Left untreated, termites can literally eat up the equity in your home. According to the National Pest Management Association, termites cost Americans more than $5 billion in damages each year. That’s more than fire and flooding combined. And their destruction knows no bounds because any home, regardless of its construction type, can offer the ideal combination of warmth, moisture, and food for a termite attack. Additionally, many homeowners’ insurance plans won’t cover any of the damage. Not having protection can lead to problems when selling a home, since many lending institutions require a termite bond before lending money to home buyers.
Unless there are signs of an active termite infestation, you probably won’t detect termites because they forage and hang out hidden from view. Learn more about the telltale signs of termite infestations and the damage they can cause to your home. Visit our Termite Infestation Threat page or our Risk Areas: Termite Infestation for some additional tips.
The Orkin Man Can.
Orkin specialists are extremely qualified to help protect homes against termites. Our specialists have undergone extensive training with some of the most advanced equipment in the industry.Because effective treatment requires specialized tools such as hammer drills, sub slab injectors, rodding devices, and other equipment, only highly trained specialists should be trusted.
Orkin’s proprietary method for keeping termites in their place consists of three important steps.
Step One: Thorough Inspection
On our initial visit, we assess your unique situation and individual needs, identifying the root of your problem and prescribing the right treatment for maximum protection with minimum inconvenience.
Step Two: Customized Protection Plan
Every home and family have a unique set of termite control needs. So every treatment requires a plan that is unique to your home. Your Orkin Man designs a customized program to help safeguard your largest investment against termites. Here’s how:
- Works inside, outside, and within your home’s foundation to provide a protective area around your home.
- Offers immediate protection as well as protection from future infestations throughout the duration of the protection plan.
- Application flowmeters record the amount of termiticide used in each area and the cumulative total after each treatment, allowing us to deliver the precise amount needed.
Dry Foam And Orkinfoam
- Used to treat voids and spaces in exterior and interior walls, under slabs, around pipes, and for certain surface spray applications.
- The ultralow moisture content in Dry Foam prevents it from soaking through and damaging drywall.
- OrkinFoam treatments expand to reach critical areas, providing extra coverage and protection.
Step Three: Ongoing Protection
We evaluate your structure once a year or as requested, and provide additional treatment when required.
