Green Home Termite & Pest Control – Yelp

We have used this company for several years, and have always received great service. Brendon is an excellent technician, as are all the technicians with whom we have dealt.

They did a great job removing german roaches that showed up from the tenants living habits, and have been thorough, reliable and friendly for recurring monthly services.

Richard was our Tech. He was super helpful and very nice to deal with. I’m glad I found Green Home Termite & Pest Control. Actually just googled them. Got lucky. Certainly refer the to anyone that asked. Thanks Richard, keep up the great work.

Green Home does a great job keeping our home insect free. Reasonable prices and effective (and safe for kids and pets) treatments make them my go-to pest company. Highly recommend them

They do a wonderful job and are very friendly with our household. Trevon who serviced our home was very professional. I recommended Green Home to my neighbors.

I have lived here for a year with no pest problem. I can home yesterday to ants all over my kitchen. I called these guys, and they gave me great pricing and came today for my first service. Brendon called 20 minutes before he arrived to let me know. Showed up right when he said he would. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. He made sure that my wife and I knew exactly what to expect, and when they’d be back for the next service. This is organic pest control at prices better their non-organic competition. I couldn’t be more pleased.

Trevon is our technician, and he is very knowledgeable about pest control, from insects to rodents to birds. He is thorough, and is happy to explain what he is doing and why, both inside and outside the home. I highly recommend Green Home Termite and Pest Control to keep your property pest free. Keep up the good work, Trevon!

I’ve been using this service for about 3 years and I’ve never been disappointed. They spray the outside and inside of my house. I have 2 kids and 3 animals and having safe pest control is so important in the desert. The spray not only works wonders, it does not give off an odor! I am super sensitive to the smell of most pesticides and these don’t smell. Most importantly the sprays they use actually work! No black widows, no roaches, no ants, no bugs in 3 years. Best of all, the customer service is fantastic. They show up when they say they will, the techs are always super friendly and if you need a touch up spray in between they’ll come out for free. Trevon was super friendly, did a great job and exactly the type of person you’d trust around your house.

Super friendly technicians and quick service. Trevon was nice and helped with all my questions. Asked me questions to get to know my problems better to fix them!

Porter was amazing! He was friendly, explained what he was doing, what he was looking for and answered my million and one questions. Very professional technician!! I was also very impressed with the company. I was in desperate need of someone to come out and Green Home answered, answered all my questions and had someone out the very next day.

I had high expectations after setting up the appointment and talking with Brian. Brendon exceeded those expectations!! He left nothing untreated or checked out. For the first time, I have hope that we won’t be terrorized by scorpions this summer or at the very least, we have partners in the fight!Thank you Brendon!

Dave provided excellent customer service thruout my initial treatment! He took time to walk me thru the process of not only the current service he was providing, but what to expect as a result. He gave detailed insight on the products used, down to the solution measurements. Dave is a very courteous and respectful technician… also very meticulous! I truly appreciate the level of professionalism as well as personalized service he provided. Dave even removed his shoes upon entering my home, without me asking! This was the “cherry on top”, as my family and I follow a no shoes in doors policy lol. Thanks Dave!!

Great experience! Bryan was very informative when I called, and able to schedule same day service. Brendon was knowledgeable, professional, and personable. Top notch service, guys!

Refused to guarantee their work from the Groupon despite still seeing pests less than 2 weeks after their initial spray. Upon contacting the company, they told me they “do not guarantee” their Groupon sprays, and largely use them in order to attract suckers (er, sorry, “customers”) to their much more costly bi-monthly service.EDIT: The owner, Jon, contacted me directly within hours of this review going up — apparently there was some miscommunication and they DO guarantee their Groupon work, which is great — I am scheduled for a respray very soon. I am temporarily changing this review to a 3-star, and will amend it further based upon what happens during their second visit. However, I am already impressed at how Jon explained the situation personally over the phone, and I look forward to seeing how they correct the ant problem I’m facing.EDIT 2: My problem was handled, and my ant problem went away. HOWEVER, even the technician expressed some surprise that they were coming back for a second spray without me having to pay, even in spite of the fact that the issue was not resolved on the first visit. (This is a little telling.) I’m still considering Green Home for a bi-monthly service in the future, but it’s concerning that both employees (but not the owner) expressed similar sentiments about resprays for persistent problems not being a normal part of their guarantee. Still, I have nothing but respect and admiration for how the owner Jon handled my problem, and I have no doubt that any future problem I may encounter will be handled quickly and efficiently as well. Thank you Jon.

I am impressed with Green Home! Dave provided excellent customer service and took the time to listen to what was important to me. He shared his knowledge with me and it was clear he cares about doing his job well. I chose to change providers of pest control because the last company wasn’t following some basic requests (don’t spray around the vegetable garden & green house or spray on top of anything left out like a pair of shoes). Pretty basic requests. I am glad I made the change.

We have used these guys since we moved here. Great customer services and we have no bug issues anymore.

The tech was very nice and THOROUGH! Great Company to work with over these past 3 years or so.

They are great! Brendon showed up right on time and was super fast and extremely nice. Their product is very effective and lasts for a long time. The first time I used them I didn’t see one spider or aunt for months!!! They are now my go to guys for pest control.

Reached out because I fired my last pest control company after my dog was attacked by wasps. Jon called me and we spoke at length about the issues in my area. He answered all my questions and was very thorough. David came out the next day and took care of the wasps and also did my initial visit. All my pest control needs have been met and I am fully satisfied. Great pricing, as well!

I thought I would take the time to write a few words about my experience wth Brian and Green Home Pest Control. I was nervous about getting set up on contracts with any company. My pest problem was major, and I needed someone to professionally take care of it. Green Home was “Johnny on spot” when it came to the solution. Great communication and friendly tech’s put my worries to rest. I will be happy to recommend them to anyone, just as they were recommended to me. Thanks to them for working around my schedule and most importantly being kind and courteous around my family a pets. They did give me homework to prepare before and after they came, but this is not a “fix all” if you don’t do your part. Thanks once again guys, you’ve gained a lifetime customer.

Termite – Field Guide to Common Texas Insects

Posted: at 6:40 am

Drywood termites (left)and subterranean termites (right), (Isoptera: Kalotermitidae). Photo by Drees.

Common name: TermiteScientific Name: VariesOrder: Isoptera

Description:Drywood termites are light yellow to black with clear to smoky gray wings, about 7/16 inch long. Worker termites (nymphs), and are up to 3/8 inch long, wingless, white to grayish with white to yellowish-brown heads, and soldiers are similar but with large rectangular darker heads bearing well developed jaws (mandibles) used to defend the colony.

Termites are occasionally confused with winged ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae): termites have body segments that are similar in width, hair-like (filiform) antennae and, when present, four wings of equal length; ants have narrow waists, elbowed antennae and forewings that are longer than hind wings.

The differences between drywood termites (Kalotermitidae) and subterranean (Rhinotermitidae) are easiest to see in the venation of the wings of the adult reproductive caste. Wings of drywood termites have three heavy veins along the basal part of the front edge of the forewing and the crossveins near the wing tip are angled, making trapezoidal cells. Subterranean termite wings have just two major veins along the front edge of the forewing and the cross veins towards the wingtip are perpendicular to theseveins, making square and rectangular cells. Soldier and worker castes are more difficult to distinguish, but are generally larger than subterranean termites. However, other characteristics of infested wood can be used for identification.

Soldier termites and worker termites, Reticulitermes sp. (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae). Photo by H. A. Turney.

Subterranean termites, Reticulitermes virginicus (in east Texas to Uvalde and Tom Green Counties) and R. hageni (in east Texas to Bexar and Eastland Counties), are social insects. There are three types (castes) of

termite adults in a colony; 1) reproductives; 2) workers; and 3) soldiers. Reproductives can be winged, primary reproductives called alates or swarmers or wingless, secondary reproductives. Winged reproductives have 1/4 to 3/8 inch long pale yellow-brown to black bodies and bear four wings of equal size that may be smoky gray to brown and have few wing veins. Termite workers are white and soft bodied. Soldiers resemble worker termites, except that they have enlarged brownish heads and strong, well-developed jaws. Soldiers defend the colony from invaders, primarily ants.

The Formosan termite, Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki, found primarily in the greater Houston-Galveston area and Beaumont-Port Arthur, is another subterranean species. It is larger than the

subterranean termite and has a pale yellow body color; the head shape of the soldier cast is more oval; and the wings of reproductives are hairy. Colonies, found in spaces such as wall voids or in hollows dug in wood both in or on the ground, are built of a mixture of chewed wood and soil cemented together, called carton. Reproductives swarm in late afternoon and evening, and are attracted to lights.

A termite queen, Reticulitermes sp. (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae). Photo by Drees.

Life Cycle:Drywood termites: Simple metamorphosis. Winged male and female termites swarm and mate, usually in late summer and early fall. Males and females remain together to start a new colony and mate periodically thereafter to assure continued egg production. Eggs, produced by the mated female reproductive or queen, hatch in about two weeks.

Nymphs develop through two stages (instars) and become workers (nymphs). Additional molts produce adults including soldiers, winged forms called alates or primary reproductives, and wingless forms (dealates, secondary reproductives) which are capable of replacing deceased primary reproductives in an existing colony. A colony requires several years to become mature, an event marked by the production of winged reproductives. Mature colonies may contain up to 10,000 individuals.

Subterranean termites: Simple metamorphosis. Subterranean termites nest in the soil. Winged male and female reproductives swarm from the nest in daylight during the spring, usually after a rain when proper conditions (heat, temperature and light) occur. Male (king) and female (queen) termites mate and seek a colony site and stay together because periodic mating is required for continuous egg production. Development from egg to adult takes 2 to 7 weeks. Eggs, produced by the queen develop into wingless nymphs that develop through three stages (instars), requiring 10-14 days, 2-3 weeks and 3-4 weeks, respectively. At first, only worker termites are produced. Thereafter, there can be three types of nymphs: 1) false workers or pseudergates with no wing pads that molt continuously; 2) nymphs with wing pads that develop into winged male and female reproductives; and 3) soldier nymphs. Reproductive termites can develop from nymphs with wing pads (primary reproductives) as well as from false worker nymphs (secondary nymphoid repro- ductives or tertiary ergatoid reproductives) in the absence of primary reproductives due to the death of the queen or colony fractionation. A termite colony matures in 2 to 4 years and may contain 21,000 to 365,000 termites.

A winged reproductive termite, Reticulitermes sp. (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae). Photo by J. Hamer.

Habitat, Food Source(s), Damage: Colonies of this social insect occur in sound, dry wood. Swarming occurs at dusk or early evening and the swarmers are attracted to lights. The mated pair starting a colony seeks a crack and crevice in wood, such as the spaces between wood shingles. The queen and male (king) produce and tend the first brood. Afterwards, worker termites care for the queen and male, tend the brood (eggs and immature forms), gather food, build and maintain the colony. Termite workers eat cellulose-containing materials found in plant products, which is digested by a one-celled animal (Protozoan) living in their digestive system. Workers share food with the other members of the colony. Tunnels or galleries which house the colony are produced by workers in dry, cured wood are clean and free of debris. Tunnels can run across the grain of the wood. Those reaching the woodsurface end in kick holes, where unique fecal pellets are expelled from the colony and pile up below infested timbers. These pellets are hard, 1/25 inch long, elongated seed-like particles with six lengthwise ridges between depressed surfaces. Soldier termites defend the colony from intruders.Subterranean termites: Worker termites gather food, maintain the nest, and feed and care forother members of the colony. Paper, cotton, burlap and other plant products as well as the stems of some plants (e.g. okra) serve as food sources. Workers returning to the colony share food with the rest of the colony. Workers feeding above ground construct tunnels or tubes made of soil and wood particles and salivary secretions. These tubes protect the workers and retain moisture in the nest.

Pest Status: Drywood termites: Termites occur in Texas coastal counties, with western spot infestations in Uvalde and San Antonio and north to Collin County, causing a great deal of concern to homeowners when discovered. Biology differs from the more common subterranean termite because it does not nest in the ground and thus requires a different, more expensive treatment approach. Termites are medically harmless.

Subterranean termites: Worker termites tunnel into structural timbers and other sources of cellulose on which they feed. Termites are harmless to man and animals although soldier termites can bite. They occur throughout Texas, but are more prevalent in coastal regions.

Management: See Subterranean Termites. See also How to Select a Termite Control Service and Household and Structural Pests.

I live on the 17th floor. Is my home safe from Termites?

No home is termite safe. They enter homes from building foundation and hence cause damage to walls and wooden structures. Termites eat furniture, papers, books, and even documents kept in lockers and safe causing colossal damage within few months. Homes with water seepage and dampness are more prone to termite attack. Termite workers storm our property in millions and they work 24 x 7. HICAREs professional termite control will completely kill even the last termite present; within fifteen days your property will be termite-free.

Termites need moisture for their survival, hence damp walls, leakage and water seepage are like an open invitation for them.

Always invest in a preventive termite treatment to protect your valuables, because being safe is always better than being sorry! While shifting into a new house or apartment get a professional termite inspection and invest into a preventive termite control service. While looking for houses on rent ensure to get a termite inspection to safe guard your furniture and other valuables. Old furniture is prone to termite attack so its good to get an expert termite inspection.

Termites feed on cellulose found in wood, paper & cotton in forests.As forests disappear, termites are entering our homes from the soil through walls to eat furniture, structural wood, paper, books, currency notes and even valuable documents kept in safe and lockers.If your society and building does an unprofessional termite control or anti termite treatment at foundation level, chances are you will get termite at home.Homes with water seepage and dampness are more prone to termite attack. Book collections and libraries at homes attract termites. They are so swift and quiet that the damage is done before you even know of their presence.Hence termite inspection should be done every few months. Termites usually build multiple colonies. So even if you have found one and have managed to eradicate it, there is a good chance they are already busy destroying some other part of your home.

Termites feed on the cellulose found in wood, paper, cotton and on trees in the forest. As forests disappear they invade our homes, from the soil through the walls to feast on our books, papers and furniture. Even currency notes and valuable documents in safe are not free from them.

An average 2BHK home will take approximately 2 hours for treatment and home dcor is not affected as we seal the holes perfectly.

What Do Termites Look Like? Signs of Termite Damage

Posted: June 2, 2018 at 8:41 am

Termites have been munching away on wood for more than250 million years, long before people started building their homes from trees. Termites recycle wood products intothe soilby feeding on and breaking down cellulose, the main component of the cell walls in plants. Most of the 2,200 or so species of termites live in the tropics.

Most termite damage is caused by subterranean (underground) termites, members of the family Rhinotermitidae. Subterranean termite nests usually contact the soil, thus the name subterranean. Among these ground-dwelling termites, the most common structural pests are the eastern, western, and Formosan subterranean termites. They will eat your framing starting at the bottom of the house and like softwoods.

Other termites that cause structural damage include thedrywoodtermites (family Kalotermitidae) and thedampwoodtermites (family Termopsidae). Drywood termites enter at the roofline and damp wood termites like basements and bathrooms or where water leaks occur.

If you suspect you have a termite problem, your first step is to confirm that the pests are, indeed, termites. Some people mistake termites for ants.So what do termites look like?

Winged ants look quite similar to termites; as a result, quite a few people confuse the two. This is especially the case when comparing winged ants to termites. Here’s how to tell them apart:

Because termites eat wood from the inside out, you probably won’t find them until your home is infested, and you’re more likely to see signs of damage than the bugs themselves. Look for:

If you find signs of termites, you can treat the infestation yourself or call local pest control professionals.If you choose to do it yourself, you’ll need to first find the location where they have been eating (the “termite gallery”) and attack the site, applying the insecticide. Outside you will place baiting stations or treat soil to kill the remaining insects, as done in the prevention section below.

Methods of prevention include digging a trench and spraying an insecticide into the ground to repel them or a “nonrepellant” barrier that they bring back to their nest to kill the rest. It’s a labor-intensive process but can last for five to 10 years if left undisturbed.

Bait stations aren’t labor intensive but must be checked every few months. They need to be dug down 8 to 10 inches and placed every 8 to 10 feet. First, they’re loaded with “prebait” and then, after the activity is detected, the actual poisonous bait.

If you live in areas where termite infestations are common, it’s important to inspect your home (or have it inspected by a professional) regularly for possible termite infestations. Catching termites early can save you costly home repairs.

Eastern Subterranean Termites

The termites pictured here are soldiers of the native eastern subterranean termites. Swarmers of this species are about 3/8 inch long. Notice their rectangular-shaped heads, which can help you distinguish this species from other termites. Eastern subterranean termite soldiers also have powerful mandibles (the brown jaws protruding from their heads) with which they defend their colony.

Eastern subterranean termites live in moist, dark places. They feed on structural wood, eating out the middle of beams and leaving thin shells behind. As a result, it can be hard to see these termites; by the time many homeownersnotice an infestation, the damage has been done.

This Formosan subterranean termite soldier measures about 1/2 inch long. Itshead is darker and oval in shape; it has a rounded abdomen, a thick waist, straight antennae, and no eyes. Like the eastern subterranean soldiers, Formosan soldiers have powerful jaws to defend their colonies.

As one of the most destructive termite species in the United States, Formosan termites are a major concern. They can multiply and destroy wood structures faster than other native subterranean species. This is the case not because they actually eat faster than other termites, but because their nests are so big. In fact, Formosan termite nests can actually contain millions of termites.

Formosan termites were spread by marine commerceand now cause millions of dollars of structural damage in the southeastern United States, California, and Hawaii each year.

Drywood termites live in smaller colonies than their subterranean cousins. They nest and feed in dry, sound wood, making them a significant pest of wood-frame homes. Many species of drywoodtermites live in the southern half of the United States, with a range extending from California to North Carolina and southward. Most are 1/4 to 3/8 inches long.

One way to distinguish drywood termites from subterranean termites is to examine their waste. Drywood termites produce dry fecal pellets which they expel from their nests through small holes in the wood. Look for accumulations of these dry fecal pellets. Subterranean termite feces is a liquid, by comparison.

Like most termites, drywood termites eat structural wood from the inside out, leaving a brittle shell. Unlike some other types of termites, however, they don’t need access to damp conditions.

The reproductive termites, called alates, look quite different from workers or soldiers. Reproductives have one pair of wings of almost equal length, which lie flat against the termite’s back when it is at rest. Their bodies are darker in color than soldiers or workers, and alates do have functional compound eyes.

You can still distinguish reproductive termites from reproductive ants, which also have wings, by looking at their bodies. The termite alates still have the characteristic straight antennae, rounded abdomens, and thick waists. Ants, in contrast, have markedly elbowed antennae, prominent waists, and slightly pointed abdomens.

Eastern subterranean termites usually swarm during the daytime, between February and April. Winged queens and kings emerge en masse, ready to mate and start new colonies. Their bodies are dark brown or black. If you find groups of winged termites inside your home, you probably already have a termite infestation.

Formosian Winged Termites

Unlike native subterranean termites, which swarm during the day, Formosan termites typically swarm from dusk until midnight. They also swarm later in the season than most other termites, usually between April and June.

If you compare these Formosan alates to the eastern subterranean reproductives on the previous image, you’ll notice the Formosan termites are lighter in color. Their bodies are a yellowish-brown, and their wings have a smoky color to them. Formosan termites are also noticeably larger than our native termites.

The termite queen looks quite different from the workers or soldiers. She barely resembles an insect at all, with her expansive stomach full of eggs. Termite queens have a physogastric stomach, with a membrane that expands as her egg-laying capacity increases with age. Depending on the species of termite, the queen may lay hundreds or sometimes thousands of eggs per day. Termite queens live extraordinarily long lives; a lifespan of 15 to 30 years or more is not uncommon.

Termites can do extensive damage inside walls and floors without detection. It’s clear that termites have been feeding on this wall for quite some time. If you see sawdust at the base of a wall, it’s time to look inside.

Termite Facts for Kids: Termite Information for Students

Posted: May 26, 2018 at 8:41 pm

Termites are known as “silent destroyers” because of their ability to chew through wood, flooring and even wallpaper undetected. There are about 2,000 known termite species in the world. Each year, termites cause more than $5 billion in property damage.

Find information ontermite controlat the official NPMA website.

Dampwood termites are normally larger in size than other termite species. Like drywood termites, dampwoodcoloniesdont have workers. Younger termites called “false workers” do all the work for the colony.

Dampwood termites like to feed on very moist wood.

Because they need lots of moisture, dampwood termites usually live in damp, dying wood or in houses with leaking plumbing that keeps the wood wet.

Dampwood termites do not carry disease and dont usually bother buildings because there is not enough water in the wood.

Drywood termites formcoloniesof up to 2,500 members. Drywood termite colonies dont have workers. Younger termites, called “false workers”, do all the work for the colony.

Drywood termites eat wood, wallpaper, plastics and fabric made from plants.

Drywood termite colonies are usually found in dry wood and they do not require moisture or contact with the soil.

Drywood termites can build nests and dig tunnels in buildings. These tunnels cause major damage because the wooden support beams can become weak and make the building lean or fall down.

Formosan termitecoloniescan be up to 300 feet long and there can be tens of thousands of termites in a single colony. Formosan termite colonies are divided into three groups: workers, soldiers andreproductives. They are the largest and most destructive kind of termite.

Formosan termites eat wood and fabric made from plants. When they eat dead trees, these termites help the environment and make space for new plant life.

Formosans live in huge underground colonies, and build mud nests inside the walls of a building. They can also live in boats and buildings.

Formosan termites eat a lot of wood and can damage your house.

Subterranean termitecoloniescan have up to 2 million members! Their colonies are divided into three groups: workers, soldiers andreproductives.

Termites eat wood, wallpaper, plastics and fabric made from plants.

Subterranean termites need contact with the soil to survive. They live in underground colonies or in wet areas aboveground. They build tunnels to reach food and every spring, groups of reproductive termites fly off to start new colonies.

Subterranean termites are the most destructive kind of termite. They can eat a lot of wood and they can cause a lot of expensive damage to a house! They can destroy building foundations, wooden support beams, plastic plumbing pipes, sub-flooring, insulation even swimming pool liners and filtration systems! Termites can also injure or destroy living trees and shrubs.

Facts About Termites – Where do the different species live?

Posted: May 23, 2018 at 11:41 pm

No one knows what a termite does for fun, but everyone knows what a termite does when it goes to work.

The Good About Termites Termites feed on wood and wood by-products. They go about their daily routine doing the work they were created to do finding wood to eat and water to drink to enable the termite colony to survive. Termite food sources are readily available on planet earth. The forest is full of dead trees, roots in the ground from cleared land, stacks of firewood, the back porch steps, are all good sources of food for termites. Termites are content in their world eating and drinking and surviving. Termites are an important part of earths ecosystem, BUT!

The Bad About Termites Problems begin when termites start eating your house! Termites cant tell the difference between a dead tree limb and a wall stud in your home. Knowing which kind of termite you have is important because different species require very different control measures.

There are four species of termites found the United States. Maybe the information below will help narrow down which species you have. Other identification information is located throughout TermiteMD.com
