If your home was recently affected by the flooding in South Louisiana, Arrow Termite & Pest Control can help you prevent mold and termite damage to your home. Louisiana Agriculture and Forestry (LDAF) Commissioner Mike Strain, D.V.M., is urging homeowners to take steps to prevent the spread of termites as they remodel and clean-up following the recent flood event.
“If your community flooded and soil around your home or business washed away, the applied termiticide barrier may no longer exist and the area may need to be retreated,” Strain said. “If you have a termite contract, you should contact your pest control company for an inspection.” (From press release dated 3/23/2016.)
Existing Termite customers need to have their property retreated for termites. The amount of treatment and the treatment type may vary depending on your construction stage and the amount of water your home took on.
- Boracare Termite Treatment: We can treat the exposed wood studs with a wood preservative that prevents termites while the walls are still open. Once your home is reconstructed and closed up, we will come back out and perform a perimeter termite barrier treatment around the property. If you are not a current customer and your home flooded, we can quote discounted termite treatment to your exposed wood studs over the phone!
- Exterior Termite Treatment: Arrow will need to retreat the exterior of your home and possibly drill or redrill concrete joints around your home in order to replenish the termite barrier bond to the soil.
- Sentricon Always Active Baiting System: This FLOOD RESISTANT system has bait that will remain active after a flooding event. Stations will be placed approximately every 8-10 ft around the homes foundation. Request a free quote from our office.
Existing Pest Control customers need to have their home retreated for pest control. Bugs are attracted to moisture and are making their presence known after the flood. If you are not a current Pest Control customer and your home was flooded, Arrow can perform a one-time pest control treatment for your home during the time of construction to help your property become and remain pest-free. Call our office to get a quote over the phone for quarterly pest control and the soonest available date for treatment!
POST-FLOOD PEST WATCH: Crazy Ants, Mosquitos, Fire Ants, Fleas, Spiders, Earwigs.
