Termite control in NWA and Mountain Home

Trusted pest exterminator for inspection & treatment in Northwest Arkansas & Mountain Home

If you’re concerned about a termite infestation, you have every right to be; they can cause serious structural damage to your property. In fact, research has found that termites account for over $1.5 billion in property damage annually.

If you suspect these wood-eating insects are taking over your home or business, call Hopper Termite & Pest. We’re a family-owned and operated pest control company that has been providing comprehensive termite control in Springdale, Fayetteville, Mountain Home, and surrounding areas since 1963.

Our technicians are members of the National Pest Management Association and the Arkansas Pest Management Association in addition to completing numerous ongoing training sessions. In other words, we’ve got the experience and understanding of proper termite control you need to keep you and your property safe.

Termite pre-treatment for new construction

Hopper offers two options for providing termite pre-treatment for new construction: traditional liquid treatment to fill before the concrete slab is poured, and Bora-Care direct wood treatment. Having one of these treatments while your home is being built can go a long way to protecting the property from termites. The quality of the work is very important for new construction because shoddy or ineffective treatment can open the door to termites in the future. That’s why we recommend safeguarding your investment and telling your contractor to use Hopper Termite from the start.

Termite control FAQ’s

I'm buying/selling a house. Can Hopper inspect it?

Yes! Whether you’re in the market for a new home or listing yours, it’s important to ensure it is termite-free. Hopper Termite & Pest is proud to assist with any required inspections.

Why are termites attracted to my property?

Every structure can become a potential home for termites, especially those that have plenty of moisture and wood. These pests commonly enter buildings via mud tubes they build within the soil, so anything that comes into contact with it is a potential entry point.

Other common colonization sites for termites include:

  • Cracks in the foundation
  • Leaks in plumbing or roofing
  • Faulty downspouts and gutters
  • Sloping ground near the foundation
  • Firewood
  • Decks
  • Landscaping timber
  • Moist ventilation
  • Hard foam insulation
What can I do to avoid the need for termite control?
  • Keep any and all wood off the ground – This begins in the construction phase, as any wooden floorboards on top of the soil will lead to termites. But also, make sure your wooden decks are elevated off the ground and even firewood should be kept up as well to prevent the need for termite control.
  • Don’t use mulch – Termites love mulch for much of the same reason plants do. It retains moisture so if you want to avoid needing termite control in Springdale or Fayetteville, consider using rocks or gravel instead of mulch. If you must use mulch, then make sure there’s a natural barrier between the mulch and your home.
  • Act quickly on all slab leaks – As termites love moisture at low levels, slab leaks can be the worst. If you have any questionable places in your home that might be susceptible, then consider a dehumidifier to make your home as inhospitable for these pests as possible.

How does Termidor® work?

This treatment method is also known as the “Transfer Effect™.” Termidor® is composed of a non-repellent termiticide that termites cannot detect naturally. As they come into contact with it, via ingestion or just simply touching it, they then transfer it to other members of their colony. Within three months or less, an entire colony is wiped out and you are rid of your termite problem.

We tend to prefer this type of treatment method over baiting systems because it works faster.

How our termite treatment process works

In order to determine the most effective method of termite treatment in Springdale, Fayetteville, or Mountain Home, our highly trained technicians will first conduct a thorough inspection of your property to determine the density of the infestation. From there we will consider how best to take into account your property’s construction and its relation to the infestation location.
