Protect Your Home with Free Termite Inspections

Living in South Florida means living in sunshine country – but unfortunately it also means living right in the middle of termite territory! Approximately one fifth of homes in the Southeast will suffer termite damage--don’t let your home become a statistic. Our termite control services in the Fort Lauderdale area provide you with relief from termites and keep them out for good!

Termite Control in South Florida

Termite Species Common in Florida

Are you worried you might have a termite problem? Not sure if Subterranean or Drywood termites are to blame? You can trust the professionals at Hoffer Pest Control to help. With over 40 years of experience protecting homes in South Florida just like yours from these destructive insects, we are the termite experts. Below, we discuss the key differences between the two termite species, as well as our thorough process for treating them.

Subterranean Termites

Subterranean termites love the South Florida climate and are found in many homes in our area. Few pests are as dangerous to homes and buildings than subterranean termites. These pests live in large colonies and work 24 hours a day to destroy wood. If a termite invasion isn’t treated they can cause extensive, expensive damage to the structure of your home. Hoffer Pest Solutions relies on the eco-friendly Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System to eliminate subterranean termites.

Continuous Property Protection from Subterranean Termites

Hoffer Pest Solutions has completed extensive training to meet the rigid requirements for authorization to provide the Sentricon® service.  It is both eco-friendly and applied discreetly around your home. While other termite treatments require drilling in the foundation and floors of your home, or applying chemical solutions in the ground under your home, the Sentricon® System involves simply placing small stations around the home. The termite treatment begins working as soon as it is applied, eliminating the entire colony and offering continuous property protection:

  • Sentricon® System includes Always Active technology for long term protection
  • Sentricon® stations with Recruit® HD termite bait are positioned in high-traffic termite areas to bait termites
  • Termites consume the bait faster than they do wood, helping to accelerate the elimination process

Hoffer Pest Solutions guarantees subterranean termite treatments for one year (with an option to renew annually). If subterranean termites return and cause future damage, we offer a $1 million dollar guarantee.

Drywood Termites

Drywood termites are attracted to the lighting on buildings and seek openings to go inside. They can get inside an opening as small as 1/64 of an inch! Treating homes and businesses for drywood termites is possible with tent fumigation or a no-tent, liquid treatment process.  Hoffer Pest Solutions offers four types of drywood treatment options:

  • Preventative Treatments: Hoffer Pest Solution technicians apply a borate-based inorganic salt treatment to exposed wood areas in your attic and home. It is an effective deterrent for drywood termites – when they come into contact with the material it prevents them from returning.
  • Spot Treatments: If drywood termites have targeted areas of your home, we can apply spot treatments to just these areas. Spot treatments include liquid or foam injections to drywood infested areas in your home.
  • Liquid “No Tent” Treatments: Liquid products used in the no-tent drywood termite treatment process are less intrusive than tent fumigation. Our technicians apply the liquid to all accessible wood found in crawlspaces, attics, and soffit vents. Drywood termites walk through the treated areas and transfer lethal doses of the product throughout the colony – leading to the elimination of all termites in the colony.
  • Tent Fumigation Treatments: Among the most effective methods for drywood termite treatments is the tent fumigation process. It has a very high success rate for eliminating all termites in the colony but requires much more preparation from the homeowners to complete.

Hoffer Pest Solutions guarantee drywood termite treatments for one year (with an option to renew annually). If drywood termites return, we will come back at no additional charge to eliminate them. If you want to protect your home or business from drywood termite damage, contact Hoffer Pest Solutions to get started!

Tent Treatment Advantages & Disadvantages

Tent fumigation is the most effective method for eliminating drywood termites during the first treatment. While tent fumigation offers the best success rate, it also requires homeowners to prepare the home for treatment, including removal of food and medications. People and pets must vacate the home for two nights, which can be inconvenient. Tent fumigation also poses a risk for property damage to roof tiles and landscaping.

No-Tent Drywood Treatment Advantages & Disadvantages

When you choose a no-tent treatment for eliminating drywood termites you do not have to prepare the home or remove pets from the home during the treatment. Products used for no-tent drywood termite treatments offer long-lasting residual protection to help prevent future infestation. On the other hand, multiple treatments are sometimes necessary when using no-tent treatments for drywood termites.
