The Most Popular and Effective Methods

At Superior Care Termite, we focus on the two main types of treatments we feel are most common and effective— Spot Treatments, and Whole Structure Fumigation. Both methods can be effective in fighting termite infestations when done properly. There are a few things to consider when making your decision on a treatment method for your property. Remember that each structure and each infestation is unique. Furthermore, subterranean infestations must be treated differently than drywood infestations. A detailed inspection will give you the best evaluation on what you are dealing with and allow you to select the treatment that best suits you. See our treatment comparison below:

Spot Treatment

  • Can be more economical (initially)
  • Can be effective when all areas of infestations have been detected and are accessible
  • Drilling may be required—either to access subterranean termites or drywood termites in superficial structures
  • May need more than one treatment if infestation returns
  • Oh, and your home won’t look like a circus

Whole Structure Fumigation

  • The circus is in town! The whole structure must be tented for a couple of days
  • Can be a bit more expensive than spot treatments, depending on the square footage of the unit
  • There's no need to identify every single area affected by termites since the entire unit will be treated
  • Reinfestations are much less likely
