Termites need the cellulose in wood as a food source, which is what makes them such a destructive pest.
Damage causes by termites is rarely obvious.
Termites can create extensive damage before they are ever noticed.
The damage caused by termites is rarely obvious but can be devastating. Termite exterminators in Utah require an inspector to audit both the inside and outside of a building, a building’s foundations and basements or crawl spaces looking for termite activity. It’s best to have a termite inspection every few years, or right away if people in your community have reported termite problems.
The next step in Utah termite control is determining the best treatment. Termite management and treatment is not one size fits all. We will use liquid treatment, baiting treatment or a combination of both based on the situation.
We need to identify areas with activity, potential causes, and assess the best treatment strategies for the specific structure.
Mud tunnels are a good identifier that termites are still active at the site.
Wood piles, wet wood, thick wood mulch, or branches touching your home can all be attractants for termites.
We will provide you insight about the amount of damage and give you recommendations for treatment.
Thorn will recommend treatments that are catered to you and your situation.

There may not be a one-size-fits all treatment, but a quality liquid termiticide treatment applied correctly could be effective.

Wood sources, especially wet wood sources, are commonly the cause for termite infestations. If you have a chopped or decaying wood pile near your home, tree branches draping across your roof or siding, or thick wood mulch against your home’s foundation, you may accidentally be inviting termites to the party. Gutters and downspouts clogged with branches and leaves can even draw termites towards the home.
Additionally, termites are also drawn to nest in foam insulation, so if you find them beneath your siding, they may be burrowing towards the wood of your exterior walls. Our termite control experts can help you identify problem areas during a termite inspection.
