We got you covered
In just one year in the United States, termites will cause more than $5 billion in damage through their incessant gnawing on wood, including on people’s homes. Once termites settle into your home (and they only need 1/32 of an inch to slither in), one single queen can lay literally millions of eggs in her life. One single queen. A colony can grow into a population of thousands to millions of termites—and it’s common for that colony to spread into two or more within your home.
When termites invade your home, it’s time to reach out for help.
If you have termites in your home in Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, or the Florida Panhandle they’re likely from one or both of these two species: subterranean and formosan.
Subterranean termites can be the most destructive species. They can be identified by the mud tubes they build allowing them to reach the wood they eat and to protect themselves. They gnaw, non-stop, with their saw-toothed jaws being especially effective to break off bites of wood from your home’s structure. They’re so effective that, eventually, they can threaten the entire structure’s integrity.
Formosan termites are so incredibly aggressive that they’ve earned the nickname of “super termites” as they can ultimately tear down buildings, inch by inch. They’re also quite stealthy, making them difficult to detect as they voraciously create their damage. As these descriptions demonstrate, you don’t want either kind in your home.
If you’ve got termites in your home—the center of your world and a place of comfort and peace for you and your family—it’s natural to want to know how long it will take to get rid of them. After all, you want to keep building family memories and traditions in your home for years to come, making termites your worst enemy. The answer, though, on how long it will take to get rid of them depends on the size of your infestation and the treatments being used to exterminate the termites. Treatments used by exterminators can range from bait to liquid termiticides to wood treatments.

First, whenever you first suspect or become aware of a termite presence, it’s important to address it as quickly as possible. Termites can eat on wood around the clock during any season, and you don’t want to give them any more of an opportunity to damage your home’s structure than what’s necessary. That said, Constant Protection works year-round. In warmer temperatures—which is a good majority of the year in Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee—termites will forage further from their home base to find and eat the cellulose found in wood. During the colder temperatures of winter, though, termites are most likely to remain closer to their nests; when that’s in your home, they’ll be the most consistently in the areas where we’ll apply our termite treatment.
At Waynes Pest Control, we don’t spray. We use a much more effective treatment: Constant Protection™. This termite treatment begins working the moment that one of our pest control professionals puts it into the ground. How? Certain types of termites within a colony are in charge of feeding the others, and this treatment contains a kind of bait that they actually prefer over wood. Once they feed on this bait, they can’t moult any more, and these termites die. Once they’re gone, there are no members of the colony able to feed the rest of them, and so they also die. So, when you contact us for Huntsville termite control or termite services in Birmingham, Nashville—or any of the other cities in our significant tri-state service areas—we’ll conduct a thorough termite inspection and then place Constant Protection™ stations ten feet apart around your home and in any other areas conducive to termite activity. Then, we’ll regularly check on them and replace them as needed.
We’d have to refer again to what we use: Constant Protection™ technology.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lists termite treatments, which can include physical barriers installed during the home’s construction with certain sizes of steel mesh and sand having some effectiveness. They also note that, in laboratory settings, nematodes (roundworms) and fungi have shown some success. What you’re probably interested in, though, are types of termite control that pest control professionals can apply to get rid of termites. Those include termite bait, liquid termiticides applied to the soil, wood treatments, and when building materials are infused with termiticides. At Waynes, we use the highly effective Constant Protection™ technology, which is bait strategically placed into the ground. So, if you need termite control in Birmingham, Huntsville, Nashville, or any of our other service areas, let us know. We’re happy to get started with a free termite inspection.
Step one: as soon as you suspect or know of a termite presence, reach out for professional help.
