Termite Treatment and Prevention | Zanesville & Columbus Ohio
Xterminator Pest Control in Columbus Ohio is your top choice for termite treatment and prevention. We provide all of your termite services from inspection, advanced termite baiting to no tent termite treatment and WDI (wood destroying insect) inspections in Columbus, Zanesville, and surrounding areas.
Termites eat wood, and can consequently cause great structural damage to your home if left unchecked. A typical homeowner’s insurance policy does not cover destruction caused by termites, even though they cause over 1 billion dollars in damage to homes throughout the United States each year. Our inspection and treatment program can help you understand the threat of termites, and take the necessary steps to protect your home.
Is it a termite or an ant?
On the off chance you do see them, remember that it’s easy to confuse termites with ants. Fortunately the pest control experts can show you how to distinguish them.
Free Termite Inspection
You can’t assume your home is termite-free just because you’ve never seen them; they only swarm once or twice a year, and you might miss it! We provide a thorough termite inspection of your home or business, looking for the tell-tale signs of termite infestation.
Termite Inspection and Signs of Termites:
- Mud tubes built for traveling above ground
- Damaged or hollow-sounding wood
- Pinholes in drywall or wallpaper
- Small piles of sawdust
- Piles of small wings
- Other specific termite indicators
Termites Are a Constant Threat to Your Home
Termites are not going away. These destructive pests have been around for over 250 million years, and they’re able to adapt to a wide variety of environments.
It’s not uncommon to have multiple termite colonies in the soil around your home at any given time, with hundreds of thousands of termites in each colony.
Your home may look great on the outside but what’s going on in the wood behind your walls. Termite damage costs billions each year because they are able to go undetected as they feed on the wood in homes. Because termites feed out of sight, they can cause major structural problems to your home before they are even discovered. This is why Xterminator Pest Control takes termite prevention and treatment seriously.

Termidor Soil Treatment for Subterranean Termites
Termidor is Xterminator Pest Control’s choice when choosing chemical barriers for subterranean termite control. It has been extensively tested, and in test after test it has provided 100% control of termites in 3 months or less.
6 Good reasons why we use Termidor for Termite Control:
- It is one of the most tested termite control products on the market.
- It has proved 100% effective in all soil types, and against different species of termites
- Termidor has provided unmatched protection on homes against termites in the USA, Australia, Japan and France.
- It doesn’t leach or move from the treated site. Termidor works in a different fashion from other termite barriers which are repellents to termites.
- In other termiticides, termites keep trying to find gaps in the barrier to gain entry into the building.
- With Termidor termites can forage through treated areas and be unaware that they are contacting the termiticide and will gather it on their bodies and transfer it when they return to the colony.
Termidor lasts more than twice as long as some other termite treatments as well as killing off termite’s colonies and therefore better value for money
Advance Termite Baiting System for Subterranean Termites
The Advance Termite Baiting System uses a three step process to protect your property from subterranean termite invasions, including detection of termites, elimination of termite colonies, and prevention against re-infestation through regular monitoring for new termite activity. We’ll install termite monitoring stations complete with a termite monitoring base and a termite inspection cartridge around the exterior of your home. We will inspect the stations regularly for signs of termite activity. When the stations show signs of current termite activity, we’ll replace the inspection cartridge with a bait cartridge that dispenses bait throughout the colony.
Termites will consume the bait and bring it back to their colony to share with nest mates.This will cause a gradual decline in termite numbers on your property, ultimately eliminating any active termite colonies.
No Tent Termite Treatment for Drywood Termites
Bora-Care® is a no tent termite treatment for your whole house, killing existing Drywood Termites and provides termite prevention from future infestations.
Any homeowner who has had to fumigate a home knows what a difficult procedure it is. The family must move out along with all the pets and plants-even the goldfish has to go. All food must be double wrapped in plastic bags. The power and utilities must be shut off. And then the entire house must be covered with giant tarps as a toxic chemical is pumped into the home. The process can take several days and cost thousands of dollars.
While this difficult procedure will kill the termites, it does not prevent them from coming back, even in the same year. And in an area like south Florida with heavy Drywood Termite pressure, it is not a question of if the home will get infested, but when.
Xterminator Pest Control can provide you with no tent termite treatment for your whole house. Our no tent termite treatment for Drywood Termites with Bora-Care® and Termidor doesn’t keep you out of your home. Bora-Care® is an EPA-registered termiticide and fungicide that works by being sprayed onto wood. The active ingredient in Bora-Care® is borate (remember 20 Mule Team Borax®?) This mineral salt is less toxic than table salt to humans, pets, birds and fish (when comparing toxicity levels in a laboratory setting), yet it is deadly to insect pests. And because it is a mineral salt, it will not break down over time. When Bora-Care® is sprayed on the wood, it’s patented formula penetrates deep into the wood and remains there for the life of the wood, providing residual protection.
