Services: Termite Control

Termite Control & Treatment Services in Utah

The National Pest Management Association estimates that termites cause $5 billion worth of damage annually.

Termites need the cellulose in wood as a food source. This is what makes them such a destructive pest. Thorn is here to help protect against and eliminate termite infestations.


A focused approach to termite control and removal

Good termite treatments start with a good inspection.

We need to identify areas with activity, potential causes, and assess best treatment strategies for the specific structure.

Liquid or baiting termite treatments?

We don’t take a one size fits all approach to termite management. Both liquids and baiting systems have their pros and cons and we use them both depending on the situation.

Liquid Pros:

  • When applied correctly, they work really well to keep termites out
  • Long lasting with many lasting up to 5 years
  • Apply once and done

Liquid Cons

  • Labor intensive
  • Can require damage to some landscaping right around the structure
  • Requires a lot of pesticides be placed around the structure
  • Does not address termites in the surrounding area, just those that try to enter the structure

Baiting System Pros:

  • Less labor intensive
  • Less pesticides
  • Can address and eliminate colonies of termites in surrounding areas
  • Does not require trenching around the structure

Baiting System Cons:

  • Requires constant monitoring $$$
  • Is not quite as fool proof as liquids in eliminating and preventing termites
  • Slower to eliminate issues
