Termites

What type of guarantee do you offer?

We offer Repair Guarantees and Retreatment only Guarantees. If termites ever come back, we come back. Our Repair Guarantee has no deductible.

Which method of treatment do you use and why?

We use Termidor, which has consistently proven to be the fastest and most effective at eliminating termites in and around structures. Termidor has been available to the market since 2000 and the product is tested in our soil at the testing site in Griffin, GA.

Why do you use the liquid treatments over the bait stations?

Bait systems rely on termites to find stations, so they may take years to begin working and to achieve control. Bait systems require termites to encounter a station for control, but there is no guarantee that termites will ever come into contact with these stations during normal activity. In contrast, undetectable liquid termite treatments work immediately. Applied around the home, these products do away with termites once they encounter the treatment. In fact, Non-Repellants begins working immediately to terminate termites both inside and immediately surrounding the home.

The Non-Repellants allow termites to forage in a treated area, and then unknowingly pass the insecticide on to other termites during normal activity. This ensures that even termites that don't directly come into contact with a treated zone will still be terminated. This is called the 'Transfer Effect™, and is what makes Termidor so effective at eliminating termite colonies.

With baiting systems, termites obviously must find and eat the bait in order for the chemical to be effective. It is important to realize that the current bait systems (the bait stations and their contents) DO NOT actually "attract" termites. A termite is a blind forager and is not attracted to that bait stations any more or any less than it is attracted to your home. So, the termites have to literally bump into the bait station. The bait stations can take up to 2-3 years to completely terminate the termite colony. The liquid treatments begin working immediately and it only takes one termite to pass through the barrier and the "Transfer Effect ™" begins.

How can I tell if I have termites?

Signs are mud tubes, swarms, wings, and damage. Breda Pest Management uses infrared cameras on all termite inspections. No more guessing whether termites are behind your walls eating your studs. We have the ability to detect active termites that remain hidden during a standard 'visual inspection.' With our technology finding termites is easy.

Does it have an odor?

No.

How much does it cost to get my home treated for termites?

The price is based on the lineal footage of your home and the foundation. We come out and take measurements of your home and that is where the price is generated from.

Pest Control

Do I have to sign a contract?

The State of GA requires all pest control companies to maintain a signed agreement with it's clients during time of service. Here at Breda Pest Management, our clients are never "locked-in" to service contracts. We want our clients to welcome us in their homes to keep them pest free and therefore we simply renew the terms of the signed agreement, quarter to quarter. We service our clients every 90 days and they can cancel their service at anytime, for any reason, without the pressures of a "locked-in" contract.

How often do you treat?

We offer a Quarterly Pest Control Program, where we service the home once every 3 months. We believe it is just as important to service the inside every quarter as it is the outside. At Breda, we don't believe in taking shortcuts, that's why we service both inside and outside perimeters every time we come to your home. If you have any problems between the scheduled quarters, we come back at no charge. We also schedule specific appointment times. We know how valuable your time is and we won't give you a "window" for an arrival time.

Is it safe around pets and children?

Yes, we use a crack and crevice service on the inside of your home. No more messy baseboard treatments leaving standing chemical for pets or children to touch. Every product we use is odorless.

How much is your Quarterly Pest Control Program?

The price is based on the square footage of the home.

Official WDO Reports

Commonly called clearance letters

Most Realtors will advise their clients to have a termite letter for the purchasing home. With the ever-changing housing market, some Realtors and Lenders are not requiring termite letters at closing and it is the responsibility of the purchasing homeowner to obtain the WDO Report. Mortgage companies require a letter with an inspection date within 30 days of closing. Any letter dated after 30 days will not be accepted by the Lender.

Things of concern

Live infestation or signs of previous infestation, improper ventilation (crawl space), wood to ground contact, crawl spaces with less than 18'' clearance.

Areas conducive to infestation

Improper ventilation, wood to earth contact, cellulose in the crawl.
