Subterranean Termite Control


Signs of a Subterranean Termite Infestation

Signs of Subterranean Termites include finding mud tubes that they build from ground level, detecting wings they shed, and the most obvious: damaged wood. Annually, Subterranean Termites cost homeowners in America more than $5 billion in structural damage. They are usually found closer to ground level and can spread rapidly throughout your property.  Our expert termite control specialists in St. Petersburg excel at detecting, addressing, and proactively preventing termite problems. Our goal is to protect your property from the potential damage caused by these destructive pests.

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. 

Our Subterranean Termite Treatment

Subterranean termites are a significant threat to property owners in Florida. They cause more damage than their drywood counterparts, nesting underground in moist areas and swarming in large colonies. These termites can often go unnoticed until they have caused extensive structural damage. Subterranean termites cause homeowners in America over $5 billion in structural damage annually.

Geiger’s Pest Services recommends an annual inspection of your home as a preventive measure.

Subterranean Termite FAQ

  • What does our subterranean termite limited warranty cover?
    Geiger’s Pest Services will re-treat the structure and the surrounding perimeter if LIVE Subterranean Termites are found, at no additional charge.
  • What does "limited" mean when referring to the warranty?
    Your Subterranean Termite Warranty is limited to re-treatment only.  Coverage does not include repair to damage that may have been caused by termites.
  • How long can the warranty remain active?
    Lifetime! The subterranean termite warranty is a renewable annual warranty. It can be renewed for an annual fee and remain active for the life of the structure as long as the required “Booster” treatment is done every five years from the initial treatment year.
  • When does the cost of the warranty renewal increase?
    The warranty renewal will increase in cost every five years and accompany the required “booster” treatment.

    Every 5 years after the initial treatment, the chemical needs to be re-applied to the soil.  A Geiger’s Pest Services pest technician will re-treat the soil around the entire structure.  This is an additional cost above the cost to renew the annual warranty.
  • What do I do if I find termite evidence or believe I have a re-infestation?
    Contact Geiger’s Pest Services to schedule a free inspection.  A technician will visit your property to evaluate the evidence you are finding and determine if there is an active subterranean termite infestation.
  • Is the warranty transferable if the property is sold?
    Yes, the warranty is transferable for no additional charge.  The new owner’s information will need to be updated on the account to have the warranty transferred. This can be done by calling Geiger’s Pest Services.

    "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.

    "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
