Your First Call for Termite Control in Tama

If you’ve lived in Tama for any period of time, you know that termites run rampant throughout the community. You don’t have to look far to find a home that’s dealt with the frustrating effects of termites. Termites are social insects. This means that if your neighbor finds termites on their property, there’s a good chance your home could be their next target. If you are worried about termite activity on your Tama property, call the experts at Schendel Pest Control right away. Waiting could put your home at risk for severe and costly damage.

Termites cause over 5 billion dollars worth of damage in the US alone every year. And here’s the worst part. Homeowners’ insurance rarely covers termite damage. This means if your property is ravaged by termites, you will be the one footing the bill. Stop termite damage before it gets out of control with the help of the termite professionals at Schendel Pest Control.

At Schendel Pest Control, we are proud to have a long history of fighting termites in the Tama community. Our founder pioneered termite control in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, using termite control that was largely new to the Tama area. Since then, we haven’t stopped learning about termite control. We offer two very effective termite treatment methods. Here’s a little info on how they work.

Sentricon Treatment - Sentricon is an innovative bait-based treatment system that is non-invasive and highly effective. We install indoor and outdoor bait stations for the termites to feed on. The Sentricon system is an excellent treatment and preventative option.  

Termidor Treatment - The Termidor treatment option is highly effective, with decades of proof to back it up. This is a liquid chemical application that is applied to the soil around your home. Without dirt removal or renovation, this treatment can last for a decade.

If worries about termites are causing you to lose sleep at night, it’s time to contact our qualified termite control professionals. Our goal is to protect you and your home, and we will always provide an honest opinion without ever forcing you into services you don’t need. Our team is available to answer questions, look at photos, or make an in-person inspection.

Is It Possible to Get Rid of Cockroaches?

Cockroaches are extreme pests, and unfortunately, they have a reputation for being impossible to eliminate. When Tama homeowners, landlords, or commercial property owners find cockroaches on their property, they often panic, thinking this problem will never go away. But with proper, professional treatments, you can enjoy a cockroach-free home once again!

Cockroaches can withstand injuries and are very good at hiding, making them one of the most difficult pests we deal with in Tama. Over-the-counter treatments or DIY remedies may help for a few days, but these pests will be back with a vengeance before long. To eliminate cockroaches completely, you need the help of licensed professionals.

If you think your property may have a cockroach problem, here are a few warning signs:

  • Droppings: Cockroaches leave behind small, dark-colored droppings similar in size and color to coffee grounds or black pepper. 

  • Odor: An unpleasant, musty, or oily smell can indicate a cockroach infestation. 

  • Eggs: Cockroach eggs are small and dark and can be found in cracks and crevices. 

If you notice signs of cockroaches in your home or commercial property, don’t wait to call for help. You can significantly reduce treatment time and costs by catching the problem early. At Schendel Pest Control, we use highly effective and safe methods for controlling cockroaches. You and your family do not need to leave the house during the treatment, and it is also pet-friendly. Typically, we offer cockroach treatments at two-week intervals until the issue has cleared up. Staying on top of these treatments is crucial to complete cockroach control.

If you have questions about our cockroach treatments in Tama or would like more information on pricing, contact our office today. We’d love to answer your questions via call, text, or email.
