How To Protect Your Overland Park Home From Termites

termite on wood

Once termites have infiltrated your living space, it’s only a matter of time before they wreak havoc on your wooden structures and interiors. So, the clock is ticking on how soon you can detect their existence before their reign of terror commences.

Fortunately, Mantis Pest Solutions is armed and ready to take on your termite challenges using the most effective pest control in Overland Park. Our knowledgeable team possesses the expert skill set and the latest resources to end your termite infestation fast. 

The Life Cycle Of A Termite Colony

The life cycle begins with the queen laying up to 30,000 eggs daily. Once the nymphs hatch and mature, they’ll become members of one of four social classes within the caste system, which could be a worker, reproducer, soldier, or a queen. To prevent these insects from destroying your wood materials over time, contact a professional termite and pest control company to schedule a comprehensive property inspection.

How Termites Can Silently Destroy A House

If you constantly worked around the clock without any sleep, you’d get way more of your fair share of work done, too. Since termites never sleep, they have all the time to ceaselessly eat away at the wooden features in and around your property. What’s worse is that they do the bulk of their dirty work out of sight, burrowed deeply within your wood, and destroying it from the inside out. If they manage to escape detection for an extended period of time, they can weaken a structure’s strength and integrity, causing a possible collapse. The damage termites can could cost property owners thousands of dollars in unforeseen repairs and restorations.

If you’ve noticed signs of termites in your home, don’t hesitate to contact a reputable pest elimination company to help salvage your structures.

Natural Ways To Make Your Home Less Attractive To Termites

The movement to live more holistically has found its way into the world of pest control. Instead of reaching for toxic chemical treatments to eliminate pest problems, people opt for more natural methods to remedy the issue. In the case of termites, just taking a few proactive measures will make your home less attractive to these insects. Check out our list below of safe and simple ways you can prevent termites from staking their claim on your home:

  • Repair leaky plumbing and poor drainage issues.
  • Clear away any yard clutter and debris.
  • Install stone barriers, mesh, or other materials between where your home’s foundation and yard meet.
  • Treat your wood to discourage termite and other insect activity.
  • Reduce humidity and moisture in crawl spaces and other areas of your home.

Also, reduce excess mulch, using it sparingly or not at all. Over-usage could attract termites because of the moisture it retains. Contact a qualified pest elimination company for further guidance or to make an appointment for an in-home evaluation.

What Mantis Pest Solutions Customers Are Saying

I have been using their service for a little over a year and it’s been great. They’re very professional and the technician’s do a thorough job.

Phillip D.Overland Park, KS

Mantis is great quality at a reasonable prices. I've used them for about a year and my insect issues are non-existent. Scheduling is a breeze and they come when they say they will come. Never been an issue having a technician come out between regular service intervals as well. Derek was super polite, professional and punctual. In addition to him taking care of the wasps nests, he even applied a granular barrier in the event rain washed out the spray application. Overall, a highly satisfied customer!

Paul K.Lee's Summit, MO

Derek was awesome. He called about 30 minutes before the predetermined appointment time. He was right on time. He was very helpful; very professional. He asked of my concerns. After our discussion, he got to work. He left no stone unturned; very thorough inside and out. He wasn't going to leave until he knew I was satisfied. Great experience and great customer service. Thanks Derek!
