5 Star Termite Control
In the desert southwest, dealing with termite infestation in your home or business is a must. Specifically in southern Arizona, we have more species of subterranean termites than anywhere else on the continent of North America. Besides the multitude of subterranean termite species we have to contend with, we also have the Western Drywood termite. Having your home or business regularly inspected and covered under a warranty contract is highly recommended. The adage “It’s not if, it’s when…” is an apt description for the potential of termite infestation in every building in southern Arizona.
To aid in the prevention of termite damage and infestation, 5 Star provides FREE INSPECTIONS to all buildings in the greater Tucson area. 5 Star also provides FREE PROPOSALS for preventative and active infestation treatments. 5 Star has several levels of treatment to better suit you and your home or office construction and infestation type. All treatments preformed by 5 Star use our patented treatment process, ETT444®.
The links below will direct you to more information on where 5 Star’s services are available and details of the different levels of treatment that are offered.
ETT444® is a low in toxicity alternative to traditional soil application treatments. ETT444® is a combination of two organic chemicals, purified water, and a surfactant that can be agitated into a slurry or foam and injected into your walls. This provides superior coverage and longevity of the termiticides (termite killing/preventing chemicals). Please, click the link to learn more about how 5 Star’s exclusive ETT444® termite treatment process can work for you.
This slideshow details the ETT444 foam process slowly transforming inside your walls, giving the materials enough time to penetrate into the wood members so that termites cannot eat or cross them. Note: the foam does slowly turn into a liquid and does not stay a rigid foam within the wall void.
I (Shelby) took these pictures years ago. The bait stations look a little different now but perform the same way. In the 35 years I have been in business this year I have seen far more termites than all the other years combined. In some ways it seems strange because many of the customers we have now, who had the baiting program, was sold with the understanding the baits eliminate the colonies. I guess not…
