Our Termite Control Specialists Are Here to Help

When you need professional termite control and termite treatment, Terminix Canada is here to help. In short, no other pest causes quite as much damage as termites do. In North America, termite infestations cause big problems like damaging the entire structure of your home. Termites eat through your wooden floors, furniture, window frames, doors, and anywhere else in your home where there’s wood. Once termites have gotten into your home, they’re very difficult to get rid of. Preventative measures are key in controlling termites and keeping them out of your home.

Once you’ve discovered you have a termite infestation, it’s very important to call termite control specialists immediately. Terminix Canada’s qualified team will get rid of termites in your home, as well as setting up preventative steps to ensure you don’t face another termite infestation. We offer complete termite treatment options.

Frequently Asked Questions

Termites are more active in temperatures that range from 24°C to 25 °C. In Canada, termites often nest below the frost line and find their way into homes and buildings underground.

If you have a termite infestation, you’ll probably know. They are constantly leaving behind warning signs. Some things to look out for are dry or moist lines of mud anywhere in your home, but especially in the basement or garage. Warped, spotted, discoloured or striped wood may also be a sign of termites. Knocking on wood and hearing a hollow sound can mean you have termite damage.

Termites can cause massive damage to your home as they have a never-ending appetite and constantly feast on wood. They eat your wood from the inside out, making it hard to spot them until the damage has already been done. Some termites shed their wings as they take flight, so if you spot piles of tiny insect wings around your house, you likely have termites. If you’ve discovered you have a termite infestation, it’s important that you act quickly to get effective termite treatment to protect your home’s structural integrity. 

If your home is climate controlled year-round, like most homes, it creates optimal temperatures for termites to live in. If you have any excess moisture in your home, drainage issues, or condensation around or under your foundation, you run the risk of attracting termites.

Termites are attracted to any and all wood. Therefore, your framing, landscaping and any outdoor firewood are all appealing to them. They can enter your home through the smallest of cracks or openings.

To prevent your home from being invaded by termites, it’s a good idea to alter the areas outside your home to make it less appealing to them. Get rid of any excess wood lying around your home such as firewood. Make sure your plumbing is working properly and get rid of any leaky pipes.

    Wow, did we have a raccoon problem! Unbeknownst to us a raccoon family was living in our attic. We knew that it was some form of wildlife that was creating the crazy … read more noises that was preventing us from sleeping but had no idea that the culprits were relentless raccoons. Thanks to Adam’s experience in the field and his persistent actions, the raccoon family exited the house. It was not an easy process and took many logical and creative tries. Adam is a skilled problem solver with a wide range of skills in the construction field that make him particularly adept at this type of job. With the assistance of Marshal, he got rid of the raccoons. Both Adam and Marshal are to be commended for being both persistent and positive during this challenging time for our family. The raccoon noises were disrupting our entire household and we were exhausted. A huge thank you to Terminix and particularly to Adam and Marshal for helping us enjoy our home again. I would highly recommend the work done by Adam and Marshal. Terminix is fortunate to employ such skilled professionals.
