• Subterranean Termites

    Subterranean Termites can be an extremely costly problem if left untreated.  They cause billions of dollars of damage a year across the globe. It is very important to treat termites properly and promptly once identified.  Because termites feed on cellulose materials, and wood your home is a relative buffet for their destruction. In Florida between January and April a percentage of the termite colony will produce swarmers or (Aletes). Often, Subterranean Termite Swarmers are confused with flying ants, This can be a costly case of mistaken identity. Micah Services Inc. technicians will be happy to provide an initial inspection and estimate at no cost. If the technician finds evidence of termites in an area of your home or business (or an area that may be conducive) they will offer options for treatment.  

    Micah Services Inc. uses Termidor ® to treat the infestation. This liquid treatment is applied to areas of infestation and is ingested by the termite.  As the termite feeds on this product, the product will adhere to their bodies and they will carry it back to the colonies, where it is spread to the other termites. Eventually, all of the termites have either consumed or come into contact with the substance and elimination of the termites is inevitable. 

    Treatment of termites can range from a one time spot treatment to a full treatment of your home and yearly maintenance services dependent upon the severity.
