Detection Methods using an Explor-A-Scope

Explor-a-scope is a device used to detect termite infestation in the interior walls of a structure. It is used after an agreement has been made with the customer for local treatment vs. tent fumigation. The detection process begins when the inspector finds evidence of termites leading into inaccessible areas. The next step is to drill a small hole into the wall. The fiber optic explor-a-scope is entered into this small hole for an inside view of the area. The explor-a-scope is plugged into household current, and projects light into the dark wall voids allowing us to see full color and pinpoint the infestation for treatment. Excellent’s owner, Jay Tallon ran the first company to use the explor-a-scope, it’s now a worldwide method used for detecting termites.

Use of Termidor for Drywood Termites

Termidor is used as liquid bait for drywood termites attacking your building. Termidor’s transfer effect allows the bait to be transferred from one termite to the next as they touch. The active ingredient (Fipronil) has been more exhaustively tested than any termiticide in history. Fipronil is found in flea and tick products for animals. We offer a two year guarantee, a complimentary one year re- inspection and extended warrantees when the initial guarantee expires.

Use of Termidor for Subterranean Termites

Termidor is used to create an invisible band of soil that promises excellent control of subterranean termites attacking your building. Termidor bonds to the soil so there is no fear of leaching through rainfall and irrigation. We offer a two year guarantee, a complimentary one year re- inspection and extended warrantees when the initial guarantee expires.

Use of the Blizzard System

The Blizzard System uses super cooled liquid nitrogen to freeze drywood termites, by reducing the temperature of the drywood termite infested areas to minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit. We drill small holes in wall voids of infested walls and patch holes after treatment. We offer a two year guarantee, a complimentary one year re- inspection and extended warrantees when the initial guarantee expires.

Use of Termidor for Ants

Termidor is sprayed on the ant colonies on the exterior perimeter of the structure. When ants contact Termidor they carry it on their bodies and pass it on to any ants they come in contact with, this process will continue throughout the nest. Termidor will reach the ants indoors too. It may take up to four weeks to eliminate all of them. We offer a one year guarantee.

Use of Orange Oil for Termites

Excellent uses Orange Oil for killing termites on exposed wood, generally on inaccessible areas, such as garages. The treatment is fragrant and stains the wood that is treated. Guarantees vary on a case by case basis due to a variation of methods that are generally used in combination with Orange Oil to reach the most effective outcome.
