How We Approach Termite Control
Approximately one in four homes in the US will have a termite infestation at some point in the building’s life. Homes in Holiday experience an even greater risk as the local climate provides an ideal environment for termites to move and feed on wood year round. In addition to this risk, local termites, like the rough-headed drywood termite and Formosan termite, are some of the most destructive species in the US.
To effectively limit the damage these pests can cause, Nextgen Pest Solutions takes a three fold approach to termite control – catch damage early and accurately with an inspection, treat quickly and effectively, and prevent termites from returning.
Because of the high risks, homeowners in Florida are encouraged to receive annual termite inspections. Some termite colonies mature to hundreds of thousands of insects in months. Others can take up to five years to reach full size, but may be almost impossible to find without tools or experience. Regardless of their growth patterns, detecting the colony early allows us to prevent further damage and limit the cost of termite treatment.
An inspection can also be completed on an as needed basis, such as when you have noticed signs of pests or for a Wood Destroying Insect Report (WDIR) for a real estate transaction. We’re happy to provide inspections when convenient, and provide a treatment quote if any are located.
Every property and infestation is different, so we create a custom treatment plan for each client. We select options from our range of applications that consider:
- Species – Subterranean and dampwood termites can often be treated with baits or spot treatments. Drywood termites require more comprehensive methods like fumigation or direct treatment of the damaged area.
- Infestation Size – If the infestation has had time to grow and spread throughout the home, we will choose a method that can effectively eliminate the pests wherever they are living. This includes seeking out any second nests that can require additional treatment.
- Convenience – While prioritizing effective pest control, we choose the method that causes the least disruption to your property to limit further damage and costs.
We will go over these options for termite treatment in Holiday with you so that you know the reason behind each choice and the cost of treatment prior to service.
Many species of termites can be prevented through a pre-infestation application of insecticides in the soil surrounding your home. Termites spread by swarming in which members of the colony will fly in search of a new location to build a nest. Treated homes will deter termites from landing there.
Our inspection can also identify areas that could potentially attract termites. These can include rotting wood, water by the foundation, plumbing leaks, and fungal decay.
Properties We Work With
With the high potential for termite infestations in Holiday, nearly every property could potentially deal with termites at some point, not just homes. These insects feed on wood and natural fibers wherever they are found, including in interiors and finishings. So that we can assist any client, we work with:

There is plenty to laugh about during a visit to the National Comedy Hall of Fame. But termites and the damage they can do are not a laughing matter. The rate at which they eat their way through a home or business means they cost property owners thousands of dollars on average each year.
