Often times, determining what is necessary when thinking about controlling pests in and around your home, you make a decision based on your threshold (tolerance of pests). Is seeing an ant occasionally no worry to you? Is hearing the crickets chirp at bedtime bothersome? Unlike these conspicuous pests, termites are stealthier. They make no sound, no odor, and stay hidden within the walls, eating their way through drywall and wood framework. Occasionally termites find their way into furniture, paintings, and stored articles. These facts can alter the perception of your threshold from an immediate annoyance-based breaking point to an often times vague breaking point.

Cummings utilizes non-repellant chemistry to combat termites. Termidor®, the termiticide we utilize, is designed to sneak into the soil undetected by the termites. This allows the termites to move through the termiticide, picking up the active ingredient and carrying it back down into the colony, thus killing it from the inside out.
The active ingredient in Termidor® is fipronil. Fipronil is the same active ingredient used in a popular flea and tick medication for your pets! All applications for termites are conducted in a controlled manner; we practice sub-soil treatments, wall voids, and methods tailored to specific circumstances. Please do not hesitate to call with any questions concerning our methods. Cummings will only treat to our customers’ expectations, nothing less.
