One of the most important aspects of termite protection and treatment is the inspection and identification. It is extremely important to identify what species of termites have infested a structure. Our technicians are thoroughly trained to identify the infesting termite species.
Scent Detection K9
Kirby's not just any dog, he is a very special dog because he can sniff out termites! Kirby is very good at what he does and has a 98% accuracy rate!
According to research by the University of Florida, his breed of dog can even distinguish between living and dead termites.
Statistics suggest that termite sniffing dogs are three times more accurate at detecting termites than human experts. The success rate of beagles trained to find termites is around 90%, while the best that humans can achieve is 30%.
Termite sniffing dogs, especially beagles, have around fifty times more scent detecting cells in their nose than that of humans. To put this in perspective, this means that humans have only 2 percent of the odor detection ability of one of our dogs. Combined with an enthusiastic, hard-working personality that enjoys searching and hunting, this makes these dogs a formidable tool in detecting hidden nests of termites. Their ability to find out whether extermination efforts were successful makes them doubly valuable to homeowners who have recently paid for pest control in their house.
We take pride in our track record. Hannan has treated over 11,000 homes in South Florida in the past 16 years. We currently protect about $6 Billion dollars worth of real estate.
NO-TENT TERMITE TREATMENT
Tent fumigation uses a deadly gas (sulfuryl flouride) which is pumped into structure with a nearly 100% success rate. The downfall there is zero residual to protect your home from wood destroying insects to re-infest the home. Our process includes an extensive inspection process using our termite scent detection K9 and trained termite specialists. A custom program is created to rid your home of wood destroying insects and residual products are used to prevent re infestation. Once treatment is complete we are at that point able to utilize our K9 to ensure 100% control.
