Our Termite Service
Metro Pest Control uses several termite extermination solutions to safely and efficiently resolve your termite infestation. A thorough termite inspection by an experienced termite exterminator professional is necessary in order to determine the best solution. Knowledge of the type of structure we are treating and your level of infestation will determine whether or not we use liquid termite barriers, in-ground termite baits, or foam applications. In many instances, we recommend structural modifications to eliminate termites and prevent future infestations. Several factors, such as soil conditions and the type of construction determine which methods of treatment are best.

Termites have the ability to spread very quickly. A queen termite is capable of producing roughly 1,000 eggs per day by the age of four.
