Spot Treatments

A spot treatment means we will treat where and only where you are having active termites. This service is by far the most inexpensive and comes with very short warranty periods, and it normally doesn’t offer coverage for your entire home, just the areas treated. Sometimes this is a great option for treatment, especially when trying to buy time to put a plan in place or if it is done along with a monitoring system.

Conventional / Traditional Treatments

At All Pest Solutions we will give you lots of conventional options. The less termite entry points you have the more options for treatment you will have and vice versa. For example, if after a complete inspection of your home and we only find termites in one location outside and nowhere else. Your options would be starting with a spot treatment which is treating ten linear feet or less. That spot would come, based on price increases, with multiple warranty options up to and including a warranty on the entire structure which is renewable for up to fifteen years. You could just do an exterior only treatment, which comes with a whole house warranty covering the inside where no treatment even occurred for up to fifteen years, “renewable warranty”. You could also choose a whole house treatment, choosing to foam plumbing, (no drilling) or drill plumbing, or do both it is up to you. See many companies only give you one option, treat the whole house. We at All Pest Solutions give you all possible options and educate you on the differences and let you choose.

Pre-treatments

A termite pre-treatment is just a surface treatment that is done to the soil of a home at the beginning stages of construction. We go in and spray the entire surface of soil that the foundation is poured on, with termiticide. It is very effective way of eliminating termite attacks through plumbing and other entry points in and about the slab. This particular treatment is longer lasting because the concrete slab provides excellent protection for the chemical to stay in place and undisturbed beneath the slab. Call for more details or any questions.

Wood Treatments

Wood treatments are a very effective way to treat a structure for termite prevention. The process is less disruptive for the builders because they can continue the concrete pouring, instead of having to wait for the soil to be treated. The wood treatment is applied after the bottom plates and studs are installed, still exposed and easily accessible. There are various products to use. Our preferred choices at All Pest Solutions are a Borate treatment with Bora-Care or the liquid treatment with Totality, an FMC product.
Bora-Care is made form a mineral salt and penetrates inside, becoming a property of the wood and the termites cannot survive if they contact the wood.The active ingredient in Totality, Bifenthrin, also penetrates the wood and is toxic to termites if they contact or ingest it. These treatments are applied to the lumber up to a height of 24 inches above the slab.

We highly advise you to do this treatment rather than or in addition to the liquid pre-treatment for several reasons. It will last longer than liquid treatments to the soil, because once the area is enclosed it is not vulnerable to chemical breakdown from sun rays or soil shifting due to clay and moisture content. Economically, it is more feasible choice and is very effective.

WDI Termite Inspections

Virtually almost every real estate transaction requires you to have a WDI. This is a report that discusses the findings of any wood destroying insects. We at All Pest Solutions pride ourselves in honest and reliable inspections.

Sentricon® System with Always Active™ Technology

Has been around since 1995
World-renowned University of Florida entomologist, Dr Nan-Yao Su, Ph.D. came up with the idea for a termite-baiting system, known as Sentricon® while working on a Dow Agriscience grant.
It was the 1st and still the best.
First termite green product. Low impact. Safe for the environment.
Original active ingredient was Hexaflumuron but has since been upgraded to Noviflumuron which in theory is just a faster acting formula of the same thing.
The Fumurons technology is an IGR or insect growth regulator which does not allow termites to molt which crushes them in their exoskeletons.
Over 40 plus independent studies proving colony elimination.
Originally, we as a company were not fans of the system because it really was only as good as the tech checking it, much less the company because you had to check it every 3 months (quarterly) and open every lid and scan the bar code. It started with wood and it had to be check for activity. When the station became “active” with termites it was then switched from wood/cellulose to a bait tube and hoped the disruption worked so there was a huge margin for error. Now with the technological advances with the Sentricon® System with Always Active™ technology it goes to work the day you put it in the ground and stays active 24/7, 365.
It only has to be checked annually.
Lids do not have to be scanned but the technology is still there and can be used to find them unlike the previous systems.
The bait matrix tube is actually preferred by termites over real wood
The only termite solution that gets better with age. The older, moldier, gnarlier the baits get the better the termites like it. Liquid treatments degrade over time and must be replenished.
Less chemicals put in the earth.
Stations are placed around the structure approximately 10 feet apart outside of drip line of roof and around the conducive conditions and with the thermal shadow of the structure which means one of the reasons termites are attracted to homes is the shadow. This means cooler, moister soil that termites prefer where temperatures and moisture are more consistent.
Unlike conventional liquid treatments where limited to the structure itself, the labels are written that way to control the amount of termicide put into the earth. With a Sentricon® system you can put stations anywhere; around a deck, fence, out buildings etc. not just the house/structure. With the Sentricon® Recruit® AG FlexPack™ you can place them on tunnels and active areas so product can get to work immediately.
Negatives: We nor the consumer owns the stations. If you don’t keep your renewal the system is removed from the property leaving it unprotected. Conventional liquid treatments of course would remain in place if you do not wish to continue the annual renewal, just the warranty would stop.
How All Pest is different: most all other company’s just install the system. We will also offer the option to do a liquid treatment with a non-repellent at the active site AND foam all plumbing as an added value at no additional cost with he purchase of a Sentricon® System with Always Active™ Technology that way you are covered from “pillar to post”. But if you want to stay green we will install a Sentricon® Recruit® AG FlexPack™ at the active site as well. Your choice! Only 3% of pest control operators (PCO) are solicited, approved and chosen to become a “Certified Sentricon® Specialist Partner.
We are proud to say we are part of that 3%!

Basic Information

As a home owner there are several bits of information that you should know before purchasing a termite treatment.
Truly knowing the underlying facts may persuade your decision in purchasing a termite treatment from us. In my professional opinion gathered from the facts and entomologists all around the world, I believe termites never go away. Sure you may stop them from entering a barrier, or even wipe out a colony but history has already proved that they will create other colonies and sustain life as usual. I’m telling you this because several customers just assume that us treating for termites means they will forever be gone, but nothing could be further from the truth.
When choosing a termite treatment it makes the most sense long term to choose a plan that will provide ongoing protection and to purchase it from a business that you can trust to have all of the latest methods, chemicals, and know how to do it and do it right. We at All Pest Solutions stand behind what we sell.
All of the information we are introducing you to is not tell you should not purchase a spot treatment. We will give you all of the options and information you need to make a wise decision for your home or business. We are professionals, we want you to know exactly why it is you’re buying. It is also important to know that you can choose a short term solution for a long term problem; or you can pick a long term solution for a long term problem; the choice is yours. Luckily here at All Pest Solutions we have affordable answers for all of your needs. Below are some options:
Your homeowners insurances will not cover termite damage or treatment in your home or business.
Annually, termites do more damage than every natural disaster combined.
A 24x8 foot area can be consumed by a single termite colony in only one year.
Termites have been here for ages; they even survived the Ice Age and will continue to be here once we are gone.
Termites can build their colonies to be about as big as a basketball, underground. There is an average of 500,000 termites in one colony; they are social insects just as bees and ants are.
There are six members to a colony, such as: a queen, king, worker, soldier, secondary reproductive and alates or swarmers.
The average termite colony inhabits about 2 to 5 feet below the surface. They are below the frost line and above the water table; this is how they’ve managed to continue living for so long.
When gathering food, studies show, that a single colony will consume from an area about the size of a golf fairway.
Within the termites foraging territory they may have thousands of sources for food that they gather from daily, and they are constantly searching for new ones.
In Texas just one acre of land could be consumed with as many as twelve colonies
Although termites are a social insect they do not socialize with colonies outside of their own.
Although there are six different members to a colony on one of them does the eating: the worker. It is the only termite that has the one celled organism, protozoan, in his gut to break down the cellulose in to sugar, which they eat.
The workers feed all of the other termites in the colony.
Every year around April is when termites usually swarm. Once the reproductive termites, known as swarmers, make it outside they discard their wings, begin to mate and then burrow back into the ground to make new colonies.
More Information on Termite Service
Up until about ten years ago conventional treatments were the most effective way, other than spot treatments to service your termites. When chlordane was outlawed in 1989 the continuation of this treatment became limited. Chlordane was very effective and virtually had a shelf life of infinity. After chlordane was outlawed chemical manufactures had to find an alternative, and they failed miserably all throughout the nineties. After this fail, came the attempt to start the baiting and monitoring craze, in which I have explained below. In the late nineties the chemical companies finally got it right, they finally created a termiticide like Termidor, Premise and Phantom. Every other termiticide created before these were simply repellents and EPA’s restrictions wouldn’t allow them to stay around long. Termites can no longer detect the chemicals, and since the chemicals have to come in contact with the termites, rather than repel, this method is working quite nicely.
This is by far what All Pest recommends. The good news is when using new termiticides like Termidor, Phantom and Premise the non repellant treating options are endless. Unlike in the past or if you’re still using a repellent termiticide, you had to treat everywhere, drilling through slabs next to all plumbing, drilling all patios or separate pieces of concrete, and trenching and treating entire perimeters. When using non repellants and new foam technology, many times, based on your level of your attack, you can get by with less treatment. As well as choose to foam plumbing, above the slab, or in the wall versus drilling holes.
Let me explain. First do your research on Termidor so you understand the difference. Non-repellants allow for less treating, because when introduced to termites and the colony is eliminated, control is to be gained without treating everywhere. Don’t misunderstand me, the textbook answer is to treat all known entries, it is still the best option by far and you could choose to foam plumbing above the slabs versus drilling through the slab and all of your bases are covered. All I’m saying is not everybody can afford a Lexus when a Toyota will do.
At All Pest Solutions we are honest open and transparent, no scare tactics, no pushy salesman who are trying to close the deal, that is not how we do business. Truth is we have been using Termidor since our inception, and we have treated thousands of houses and I can count on one hand how many re-treats we have had where termites have come back. Our success rate is almost perfect regardless of which option the customer chose.
I get asked a lot which is it more effective, foaming above slab in the wall or drilling through the slab beside plumbing and pumping product in and around the plumbing? We at All Pest have been offering the foaming option for four years and not a single retreatment has been neccessary to date.
Most companies send a commission sales person to your house, unlike us, with All Pest Solutions the salesman and the treater are one in the same, chances are that a commission salesman does not even know how to treat. The reality is that the commission salesman is new and up-coming to the industry. Make no mistake there is no replacement for hands on knowledge and years of experience.
I, Wendell Daniel, owner and founder of All Pest Solutions make it a point to be at or to supervise every termite job. There is a difference and we are the difference. If a company’s cost or bid seems too good to be true, maybe it is. A major area where money saved is normally less product/chemical used. Product choice, product placement and proper amount used is what makes a treatment most effective, followed up by a company with a good history of treating success and a warranty for you to fall back on just in case; is as good as it gets. We at All Pest Solutions can provide all of this and more, why don’t you give us a call?
Termite treatment in Dallas, TX. Termite control in Dallas, TX can be a difficult task due to several factors including geographical location, and terrain. The trinity river that flow through the heart of Dallas create a wonderful environment for the termite population to flourish and increase in numbers substantially. We also take into account a great population in Collin County is rather close to large bodies of water, such as Lake Ray Hubbard, and Lake Lavon. These areas such as Wylie, Lavon, Rockwall, Rowlett, Garland, Allen,TX all contain the moisture needed for a subterranean termite colony to flourish. Even when the drought that we all know exists here in Dallas and the suburbs every summer takes hold, it does not effect the termites as you think it would. It drives them deeper into the ground, thus harder to treat for; another effect it has is to drive them into structures containing moist wood.
