Termite Control Is a Necessity
Thinking you have termites? They may be small, but they are powerful. Termites are the most destructive pest you’ll never see, small enough to get into almost anywhere and wreaking havoc with their constant chewing. By remaining hidden within your walls, they can chew tunnel after tunnel through the wooden structures of your home or business, weakening the structural integrity to the point of making your property unlivable.
Making matters worse, termites are known as the “invisible invaders” of the pest world. Because so much of the damage they create occurs within the walls, floors, and foundations of structures they infest, it can be months or even years before you realize a problem exists. By the time you realize you have termites, you could already be looking at thousands of dollars in uninsured damage.
Protecting against termites is vital to the safety of your home or commercial property. Luckily, with help from AMCO Pest Solutions, the process of protecting your property from termites has never been easier or more effective.
Our Termite Control Offerings
The identification of a termite infestation is difficult for anyone not trained in spotting the subtle signs of their presence. AMCO Pest Solutions will send one of our pest control specialists to your home or business, to inspect for any signs of termite activity. Our inspection is thorough and includes both the interior and exterior areas of your property.
Based on the findings of our inspection, we’ll recommend a course of treatment to eliminate active termites and prevent them from getting into your home or business in the future. Active infestations get treated with a conventional liquid termite treatment that we also use as a preventative treatment.
If termites are not currently active on your property, we'll suggest the installation of a termite baiting system. We install bait stations in the soil around the perimeter of your property. When termites take the bait, they bring it back to the other termites, destroying the entire colony. We utilize both Termidor and Advance® Termite Bait System to effectively eliminate Termite Infestations, with the primary mission of protecting your home.
Our termite treatments come with a one-year, renewable warranty. You can also prepay this warranty for several years at a discounted rate.
Professional Protection With The Advance® Termite Bait System
Amco Pest Solutions is proud to offer our clients the Advance® Termite Bait System to control and prevent termites around their properties.
The most advanced termite control system on the market, Advance® Termite Bait stations feature dual-stage, low-disturbance interior design that makes it more effective than other stations in two key ways: they provide two unique food sources to attract the highest potential of termites to each station, and their low-disturbance design leads to less termite abandonment. In effect, this means that more termites are attracted to the station and the ones that come absorb more of the bait inside, leading to quicker and more efficient distribution of bait throughout each termite colony.
While this revolutionary design leads to quicker elimination of active termite presence, the Advance® Termite Bait System is also specifically designed to create a long-term barrier around your property against termites. Bait systems are placed strategically around your home, giving it 360 degree protection no matter where termites might be coming from. If soil is inaccessible, concrete bait stations are also available to ensure that no gaps exist in your home’s protective termite barrier.
If termites are present around your property, installing the Advance® Termite Bait System ensures they won’t be for long - and they won’t be coming back.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are common warning signs of termites?
There are a number of warning signs that termites leave behind in properties they infest. Some of the most common include:
- Small holes found in hood around the structure
- Small piles of sawdust-like material (frass) found around the structure
- Mud tubes running along foundation walls
- Grooves dug into the wood in your home’s walls or foundations
- Wood that sounds hollow when knocked on
- Doors or windows that jam or stick when being opened and closed
- Small, discarded wings found around the home from termite mating flights
- Swarms of flying termites near your home
Unfortunately, most of these warning signs might be invisible to the naked eye, or might not even be present at all. Termites are not like other pests: if you wait until the problem becomes apparent to solve it, it is already too late, and you already have a severe and costly infestation on your hands.
When is the active season for termites?
In the United States, “termite season” is typically considered to begin in the spring and last until the late fall, depending on the part of the country. Termites pass through the colder months by overwintering inside trees, under fallen leaves, inside plant matter on the ground, or inside the buildings they infest. They then re-emerge in the early spring to perform mating swarms, during which reproductive termites sprout wings and pair off, fly off in random directions in order to start new colonies of their own. Each pair will then become the queen and queen of their respective colonies.
Unfortunately, while they are most visible during this mating period, termites can strike any time of year. In Florida, the mild winters mean that they never go into inactivity, but even in New York and New Jersey, they can stay tunneling all year round under the right conditions. Due to this fact, the only way to keep your property protected from termites long-term is through a lasting protection program from a pest control provider.
How much damage can termites cause?
The damage a termite infestation leaves behind will vary based on a number of factors, including the size of the infestation, how long the termites have been active inside the structure, and the amount of wood present that they can get into. Certain damage is also more costly than others; for example, damage to the interior floors might not be as damaging as direct damage to the home’s foundations, which can be incredibly damaging to the overall fortitude of the structure.
The only real answer to the question of how much damage termites can cause is “a lot,” and the longer the infestation persists, the worse the damage will be.
How can I tell if I have termites?
Unfortunately, it can be extremely difficult, even impossible, for the average home or business owner to become aware of a termite problem on their property until catastrophic damage has already occurred. However, termite bait systems from a certified termite control provider can be used to accurately assess and monitor termite levels within a home. Contact us today for more details.
How to control termites in the lawn?
If there are termites in your lawn, it's only a matter of time before they enter your house. Now is the time to take action to eliminate them before they get inside. Our termite control treatments don't only eliminate termites in your home, but will also take care of the termites in your lawn.
How to choose a termite control company?
When choosing a company for termite control, you want to look for a fully licensed company that warranties their service and uses the most effective products in the industry. Amco Pest Solutions meets all of these standards.
What is the average cost of termite control?
The cost of termite control can vary from home to home. Pricing will depend in part on the size of your home and whether you have an active infestation or not. When we inspect your house, we'll provide you with a quote for our services before we proceed.
How to control termites in wood?
If termites have gotten into the wood in your house, you need professional termite control. They will not leave on their own, and do-it-yourself treatment methods are not effective at eliminating a termite colony.
How to control termites in soil?
Although termites in your soil are something to be concerned about, it's better to find them there than to find them in your house. However, it's still important to immediately contact us for professional termite control, so they don't have a chance to get into your home.
