No Drill Termite Treatment Services – Is a “No drill termite treatment” worth the price and effort?  The answer is most likely no. No drill termite control services only treat 30-50% of a home and leave the other 50-70% unprotected and vulnerable to attack from termites.  Given the mysterious nature of subterranean termites, it’s a risk consumers should not take.

“Unfortunately if you want to get rid of nesting subterranean termites drilling is necessary.”

Termites like to nest under concrete slabs.  The tiles provide protection from the brutal desert heat, moisture, and protection from predators.  Not attacking termites head-on merely to save a few bucks or keep from drilling decorative concrete might not be wise.bills pest control phoenix

At least once a week we get an inquiry about no Drill termite treatment services. It seems more Phoenix area termite exterminators are offering this service.

No drill termite treatment services consist of a service technician merely trenching the soft areas around a home and applying a termiticide. The application usually takes less than an hour. Abutting slabs and garage interiors if treated at all receive a surface application.
This termite treatment service is offered to homeowners at an attractive price and allows an exterminator to save on chemical and labor costs.

It also allows any exterminator to appear to have a competitive price when compared to a full-service Phoenix Termite Termite Company.

If a homeowner is looking for a “fast fix” at a low price, a no-drill termite service just might be the answer.

Less than 20 years ago the mark of a fair termite treatment consisted of trenching around a home, down drilling all abutting slabs, and either angle drilling, or down drilling the central piece. Arizona Pest regulations required this type of treatment when servicing a home for a real estate transaction.

When that State law was eased, exterminators began to do “outside wraps” as a way to save on labor and treatment costs. “Outside wraps” consisted of trenching the soft areas around a home, down drilling abutting slabs, and inside garages. Zones of the main house slab were only treated if necessary.

Trusted Phoenix Termite Treatment Service

Today many Phoenix area exterminators have evolved to offer “no drill” to generate more sales at reduced costs.  Our native subterranean termite is the most common species infesting homes in metro Phoenix Arizona.  Phoenix area residents live in the Sonoran Desert and like all living creatures in the desert, termites seek out moisture, food, and shelter from the sun.

Concrete slabs such as those used to build most homes in Phoenix hold and retain moisture. If you could lift up the slab under a home, you would be amazed at how much moisture is present.

A good example would be if you walked out in the desert and found a large rock. The desert soil around that large rock would be dry. If you rolled the rock over you would not only note the moisture under the rock but the presence of insects.

Your home slab serves the same purpose as the large rock and an ideal location for a termite colony.

An average lot can be home to 15-20 different colonies of termites. All are needing the moisture and cellulose (wood) your home offers to survive.
Drilling through abutting slabs where the termites are most likely to be living offers better protection to homeowners than just treating easily accessible areas.

Do No-Drill Termite Treatments Work?

Exterminators offering no drill termite treatments can expect to see an increase in call-backs and damage claims in the future offsetting initial profits.

In short, educated homeowners who understand the habits of termites in Arizona should not rely on no drill termite treatments to protect their homes.

    5 star review  Bill's Pest and Termite Control is awesome! I'm finalizing a VA refinance and the lender informed me on short notice that I had to arrange for a termite inspection using a specific form. Bridget from Bill's was able to come out the next day, they were familiar with the form the VA needed. They are certified, prompt, friendly and reasonably-priced. Thankfully no termites were found but Bridget was able to show me where the prior owner had done treatment and tell me how thorough it was. If I ever need treatment this is who I'll call for certain!

    5 star review  I have used Bill’s Pest Control for approximately 10 years. I found them when I realized I had termites in my home. They were on top of that situation FAST. That problem was stopped! They help me out with general pest control as well. That was the reason for today’s visit. At the end of the month the yearly termite inspection and update for termites will be taken care of. Cannot praise this company enough, I’ve recommended them to friends. One friend switched exterminators because Bill’s Pest was focused and reasonable in price. I’m not focused on price, even though I appreciate that immensely. I trust their expertise.
