Did you know that according to Consumer Affairs, termite infestations affect nearly 600,000 homes annually, resulting in more than $5 billion in property damage and termite treatment each year? Termite infestations are a serious threat to the integrity and safety of your home, but getting rid of them doesn’t always require fumigation and tenting. 

While severe termite infestations may require tenting, there are many alternative termite treatments to consider. Does no tent termite treatment work? In many cases, yes. Let’s talk about termite treatment without tenting using our microwave termite treatments.


Microwave Technology is a Proven Alternative Termite Treatment Method

How do you treat termites without tenting? A professional termite treatment process doesn’t always involve fumigation or other extreme measures. If we detect a termite infestation early enough, there are proven alternatives to tenting a house for termites

Your termite inspection may conclude that we can eradicate the termite infestation with eco-friendly, alternative termite treatments. The combination of plant-based and other natural control solutions, along with our proprietary microwave technology, can often get things under control. 

Hi-Tech Termite Control is proud to provide a local termite treatment with our patented, non-invasive microwave unit—the XTerminator 4.0™. The microwave unit converts microwaves to heat that is targeted at termites in walls, ceiling, floors, and other areas. With our advanced treatments, infestations in areas unreachable with chemical treatments can be identified and exterminated.

Microwaves, and our other alternative termite treatment methods using a termiticide or orange oil, are eco-friendly approaches to termite control that are low-impact, yet powerful. Not only are these eco-friendly termite treatments effective, but they’re also safe for people and pets. We can treat your property while your family is at home, and the process usually takes significantly less time than extreme treatments like tenting and fumigation. 


Alternative Termite Treatment Methods are Environmentally Friendly

Fumigation is an extreme termite control method that involves a complex approach and the use of harsh chemicals. In situations where professional fumigation methods are necessary, you can rest assured knowing that the process will follow industry standards to protect your family and property. 

It’s important to note that these highly-potent termiticides can also harm the environment. The chemical doesn’t simply disappear when the tent is pulled off of your home. Instead, it dissipates into the environment. 

Microwave treatment, on the other hand, isolates treatment to the problem areas and causes no harm to the environment (aside from pulling a few watts of energy from your home). For termites, our microwave technology and localized treatments spell the end of their infestation in your home. 


Alternative Termite Treatments are Convenient

When you choose tenting and termite fumigation, you’ll have to vacate your home for a few days and take your family, furry friends, food, and flora with you. On top of the cost of fumigation, you’ll likely have to stay at a hotel and dine out while your home is fumigated. 

With microwave treatment, we get the job done and stay out of your hair. Because our unique, high-tech unit is mobile, we are able to perform a comprehensive termite extermination without your family having to leave the home.
