Termites cause hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage each year in Gwinnett, Barrow, Walton, and Athens-Clarke counties, but not on our watch.
Termites Don’t Stand a Chance
Proactive Pest Control understands the fundamentals and advanced techniques on how to provide the expert termite control needed to keep homes and families safe.
Termites are extremely active here in Georgia and create havoc on whole neighborhoods. On an acre of land, there could be sixty or seventy colonies of termites. Just one colony contains over a million termites. Termite infestation is practically inevitable unless you are properly prepared. That’s where the pros at Proactive Pest Control comes in.
How To Tell The Difference Between A Termite & Fly Ants
- Flying ants have elbowed antennae. Flying termites have straight antennae.
- Flying ants will have a pinched waist, whereas flying termites will have a solid, thick waist.
- Flying ants have unequal length wings. The front wings will be longer than the rear wings. Flying termites have two pairs of equal length wings.

Our Combination of Liquid and Bait Treatments is a Winner in This War Against Termites
Proactive experts use a combination approach to termite control. We use baits to catch the termites you have and liquids to kill the rest of the colony.
We protect your home by trenching and treating around your property and home with liquid termiticide. We drill into concrete if needed to make sure we get an adequate amount of coverage with the liquid treatment.
Then we place bait stations around the immediate perimeter of your home to have a second line of defense. The combination of these two is a winning one and will irradicate the colony. To understand how this system works, you need to know a little bit about how termites work.
How Do Termite Colonies Multiply?
Termite colonies are made up of a cast system. The most prolific and biggest cast is made up of worker termites. These workers go throughout the environment searching for food to bring back to the queen so she can continue to reproduce and make new baby termites. Workers are super smart. They can evade traps and baits but, the liquid treatment is not something they can sense. So, the ones that aren’t picked up by the baits take the liquid back to the queen and infect the entire colony.
Our treatment takes advantage of the fact that termites are an incredibly social species to wipe them out and protect your home. Using both types of treatments destroys the colony from the inside out.
