Termite Services In Toronto and the GTA

Termites can be one of the toughest insects to control and they can also be one of the most serious pests because they cause damage to the wood structure of your home. The most conventional treatment of subtterranean termites is placing a chemical barrier between the ground (where termites live), and your home (where termites eat). Since termites can enter a structure in a space that is roughly the thickness of a piece of paper, it is critical that a complete barrier is achieved. This treatment is much more specialized than pest control treatment for other common insects. We are termite specialists with 35 years experience treating the GTA and surrounding regions.

Beware of firms that: 
  1. Quote a price based only on the number of gallons of material used.
  2. Profess to have a secret formula or ingredient for termite control (all termiticides must be registered by the Ministry of the Environment).
  3. Have no listed telephone number.
  4. Show up unexpectedly and use evidence of termites in trees or other nearby houses as an excuse to inspect the house.
  5. Also want to trim trees and do general foundation repair work as part of the "deal".
  6. Cater to elderly or infirm people who live alone (relatives and neighbors should warn elderly people to beware of people who knock at the door and propose to do service work, including treating the house for termites).
  7. Claim to have excess chemical left over from another job and offer a reduced price if they can do the treatment immediately. 


Tips For A Successful Termite Treatment


  1. Retaining the services of a competent termite control company is important because termite control requires specialized equipment and knowledge available only from professionals
  2. ​Don?t panic. Termites work slowly, so your house will not collapse or be ruined overnight. Do not become unduly alarmed if you learn that termites are, or may be, attacking your home
  3. ​Take your time. Do not permit anyone to rush you into buying termite control services. Take the time you need to make an informed decision. Find a company that makes you feel comfortable in the job they will do for you. Make sure they are licenced and experienced.
  4. ​If you are unsure about whether your home has termites, locate reliable pest control firms and discuss their termite control services.
  5. ​Arrange for a thorough termite inspection, knowing that the costs of inspections, estimates and terms can vary significantly among companies. Request inspections from three or more companies.
  6. Ask for recommendations from friends and neighbors; this is one of the best ways to get an honest opinion about a termite control service.

Chemical Treatment

Before any chemical treatment can be done all wood in direct contact with the soil must be removed from the property. Conventional treatment for termite control requires the services of a licensed exterminator. Several firms in Ontario are qualified, and your Yellow Pages or a Local Search will assist you in locating companies in your area. 
Chemical treatment takes approximately one full day, and involves four distinct phases: 

  1. Treatment around the exterior of the foundation walls as deep as the footings.
  2. Treatment under the basement floor adjacent to the foundation walls and any supporting pillars.
  3. Injection of pesticide into the basement wall itself.
  4. Finally, all exterior areas where trees, sheds or fences are located are to be treated.

If you live in a termite-prone area, assess your hazard exposure and use the information here to develop a termite management strategy that includes some or all of the control measures presented. Termite management is an ongoing process that with constant vigilance and maintenance can save a lot of trouble, worry and money.
