Haymarket Termite Control
Haymarket is an independent community just outside of the Washington D.C. area. Located in Prince William county Haymarket has a rich history that began around 1799 with the building of a courthouse. There are number of historic places to visit, but most of the town was rebuilt after the Civil War. Haymarket was original considered a crossroads since it was built around the meeting of two roads. Now it is a community focused on providing an old small town feel while providing an excellent place to grow.
Buying a home in Haymarket can be a great investment for you and your family. The wooded areas and older building can be a feeding and breeding ground for termites. Whether you own a new home with a brick exterior or an older wooden home, your home may still be at risk for termites. It is important to regularly check for termites and to contact EcoTek immediately if you suspect you may have them.
EcoTek has been helping homeowners protect their homes from termites since 2011. Our termite exterminators can provide a free inspection and estimate to help you deal with termites. The estimate will include the cost of eliminating the termites as well as the option to repair damage that was caused by the termites.

How to Determine if You Have Termites
Termites can cause serious damage to your home before you even realize they are there. Since they live within the walls and wood of your home they can be difficult to spot. Here are three signs of termites:
- Mud Tubes: Mud tubes provide protection to termites that are entering your home. You will see thin pencil like tubes running up the foundation of your home. Often if you break them apart, you can see termites inside of them.
- Discarded Wings: Termites will fly from their old colony to their new one. After they swarm, they will shed their wings. If you see a pile of discarded wings around your property, it is a sign of a new termite colony.
- Wood Damage: The wood damage will appear in long rows, and may be below the surface or behind objects.
The best way to deal with termites is to deal with them head on. Waiting until you think you have termites may be too late. There is no reason to put off an inspection, especially since EcoTek offers free inspections. This can give you peace of mind and if you do have termites, EcoTek’s technicians will provide you with a free estimate that will include the cost of eliminating the termites and cleaning up the damage. The estimate will also provide information on damage repairs and the expected cost. Although this is an optional service, it is less expensive than finding an independent contractor to do it for you.

Powerful Termite Treatments
The termiticide we have found is the most effective at killing termites is Termidor SC. This is a liquid insecticide that we apply to the top of your foundation to prevent termites from getting into your home. Termidor SC is the best treatment available on the market for five years. The treatment works when the termites pick up the insecticide and take it back to their colony. This will kill the queen and the colony. It also works to prevent future infestations.
Chemical Free Monitoring Stations
At EcoTek, we offer a chemical free monitoring option. Our technician will install EcoTek Term-Pro stations around your home. These are made up of wood and cardboard which naturally attract termites. If termites are found, then a safe solution is applied to exterminate the termites. This system allows the technicians to easily find termites if they begin to invade your property.

Frequently Asked Questions
How quickly do I need to call if I suspect termites?
You should call as soon as you suspect possible termite activity. Each termite colony can eat up to a pound of wood a day. However, it is possible to have more than one termite colony in your home. It is important to stop the damage right away. Our technicians can provide a free inspection and estimate for the service.
How do I tell that I have termite damage?
Signs of termite damage include the mud tubes, and discarded wings. Squeaky floors are another sign of damage, as are stains on the drywall or stripes in the woodgrain of the wood. Often the damage is already extensive when these signs show up.
Will the treatment affect the wildlife in the area?
At EcoTek, we use Termidor SC to eliminate termites. This is the safest termite insecticide on the market and other wildlife should be safe after the treatment is completed. The treatment is applied to the foundation of your home.
When should I get an inspection?
We recommend receiving an annual inspection. Termites swarm during the spring, and this is a good time for an inspection, though we can schedule one at any time during the year. If you suspect you have termites you should schedule one right away.
How long will an inspection take?
The initial inspection will take between 30 to 60 minutes depending on the size of your property.
