Treating Termites in Utah

Luckily there are methods of detecting and treating termite issues. EcoLife specializes in these methods and we are happy to help you find a solution to your termite problem.

Utah Termite FAQs
Q: My next-door neighbor has termites and is going to have his house treated. I’ve been told that the termites will attack my house next. Should my house also be treated?
A: Termites move randomly through the soil searching for a source of food (wood). They do not have the ability to know exactly where your house is. So, if your next-door neighbor treats his home for termites, your house does not automatically need to be treated. However, if there are active termite infestations in your neighborhood, it is a good idea to have your home inspected. The construction and condition of a house are major factors in susceptibility to termite infestations.
Q: I found termites in landscape timbers (firewood and wood mulch) in my yard. Should I have my house treated?
A: Just because you have termites in your yard does not mean that you need to treat your house. In fact, it makes sense to let the termites feed on the landscape timbers, firewood or wood mulch because they won’t be searching for another source of wood. You should; however, move these sources of wood so they are not next to the house or other wood structures. Inspecting your house regularly for signs of termites is also a good idea.
