Effective Termite Control in Wesley Chapel, Lutz, Land O' Lakes, Zephyrhills, and the Surrounding Areas
Most people understand termites pose a serious threat to the integrity of the home.
Termites thrive in dark, damp spaces. Before you know it, even a small termite infestation can quickly erode the structure of a house. There are several termite treatment options; however, termite prevention is also important!
Florida homeowners should have yearly termite inspections in addition to a termite maintenance package to ensure your home is protected against these destructive pests. DIY termite treatments vary in strength and their ability to last through Florida’s rainy weather conditions. For the best protection against termites, call Tampa Pest Cemetery for a professional inspection and treatment package.

How to Spot Termite Damage
If you suspect a termite invasion, there are a few signs to look out for. First, look for termite runs on the outside of the house in drywall, decks, or nearby trees. Subterranean termites tend to hide underground toward the house because they like the dark - so look for burrows near the house. Drywood termites eat the wood that makes up the house. To test for drywood termites, knock on the wall and listen for a hollow change in the sound. The professionals at Pest Cemetery can identify if you have a termite problem, what kind of termite you have, and offer a specific treatment to exterminate the termites and prevent a new batch from coming in.
Do It Yourself Termite Prevention for Homeowners
After people have hired a professional termite exterminator to get rid of the infestation, it is just as important for people to eliminate the conditions that invite termites to their homes. With our Florida environment creating hot and humid conditions that allow termites to thrive, there are a few tips that Florida homeowners should keep in mind:
- Move any wood piles far from the house to ensure damp wood isn't near the house.
- Make sure to have an inspection every year to look for termite damage.
- Using bait or an insecticide treatment on a regular basis as recommended by your exterminator
