Drywood Termite Control

St. Petersburg Drywood Termite Control Services

Termites are a common problem in our home area. Thanks to our warm and humid climate, termites can cause significant structural damage to both homes and businesses, if left unchecked. At Geiger’s Pest Services, we have been combating these infestations for over 24 years. The termite control technicians in our St. Petersburg office are skilled at identifying, treating, and preventing termite issues, as we seek to safeguard your property from these destructive pests. 

Call us at (727) 761-9385 today. We serve property owners throughout Pinellas and Hillsborough counties.

Warning Signs of a Termite Problem

Early recognition can help you take action before the problem becomes severe and repair costs get too high. 

Here are just a few of the key red flags to be on the lookout for: 

  • Discarded wings: Swarming termites often shed their wings, leaving behind telltale signs of their presence. 
  • Wood damage: Termites eat wood from the inside out. If your wood sounds hollow when tapped, it could be a sign of termite feeding.
  • Termite droppings: Also called frass, these droppings look like small, ridged, wood-colored pellets. If you see them, call our office. 

The Risks of a Termite Infestation

A termite infestation poses several risks, including:

  • Structural damage: Termites may feed primarily on wood, but they can also damage paper products, cardboard boxes, and even certain types of insulation. Over time, this relentless feeding can weaken the structural integrity of your building, making it unsafe for habitation.
  • Decrease in property value: An untreated termite infestation can have a significant negative impact on the value of your property. Potential buyers or renters may be deterred by the presence of termites and the associated repair costs. 
  • Additional pest problems: A termite infestation can be a beacon for other pests. Predators such as ants, spiders, and certain types of beetles may be attracted to areas where termites are present. 
  • Costly repairs: The cost of repairing termite damage goes beyond just fixing the chewed wood. It may also involve treating the area to eliminate the termite colony and taking preventative measures to avoid future infestations.

    "Would 100% recommend and will use for future use."
    Excellent service. We called and booked over the phone. Derek came out later that week. Was very polite, wore a face mask, took off his shoes and was super sweet to our excited pup. He quickly assessed the problem and gave us a solution immediately.
    Jess G.
    "Very professional and honest. Second and third opinions are a wonderful thing!"
    Derek came and inspected and educated me on how termites fly and what to look for. He even had a few videos on his phone he took personally to show me what to be concerned for when a swarm occurs.
    John H.
    "Would use them again & recommend them for inspections."
    We used Geiger's Pest Services for an Inspection on a home we were looking into purchasing, they were very friendly and professional over the phone. Derek, our inspector, had great communication and saved us some headaches during our home buying process.
    "The staff is always professional and thorough. And there pricing is very reasonable."
    Great company. I have used Geiger's Pest Services twice. First, for a dry wood termite tenting, and more recently, for a subterranean preventive treatment.
    Jeff K.
    "Their staff was mindful, considerate and professional during both treatments, and they really got the job done."
    Had to get termite treatment for our old wood frame house and found Geiger's Pest Services. They were punctual, and great with communicating with me what needed to be done, and scheduled separate subterranean and dry wood termite treatments.

    "We highly recommend them!!!"
    We had 2 other companies that just couldn't seem to get rid of the German roaches in the garage and their service was poor and quite slow to respond when needed.
    Richard S.
    "I would definitely recommend this company!"
    Geiger was recommended, and I immediately liked not only the cost (a fraction of what the other companies quoted) but also their employees. Jamea in their office is outstanding and is always available if you have questions. Derek was the inspector who made
