THE BALSON STORY
Balson Termite Solutions believes that the only way to eradicate termites in communities is to use a new and approved method that protects our homes and the environment.
The idea for Balson Termite Solutions came from Paul’s own challenges and concerns with protecting his home against these invasive pests.
In 2012, Paul purchased a new home with in the quaint town of Elora. After a few months of ownership it was brought to his attention that there was a significant termite issue within their community and further learned that Fergus, Guelph, Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo, Kincardine and parts of the GTA are faced with termite issues and that insurance does not cover the damages incurred by these pests. Knowing that termite problems in his house could decrease the value of his home, this caused some very great concern, and thus began the journey on discovering a solution that would protect homes in an environmentally safe and permanent way.
After months of researching solutions in Canada to treat, the only treatment that was discovered was a harsh chemical product that was injected into the ground around the perimeter of the home or property affected. The effects that this would have on the environment from soils to water tables was alarming, not to mention that the maximum life of the product was determined by the amount of water saturation to the soil. In addition to not having great results the estimated protection life to a home treated with this product ranged from 1 year to 5 years. The cost involved to treat using this method ranged from $3000 to $5000, a pretty heavy cost for solutions that had very little life expectancy and bad for the environment.
After months of research and coming up with only one very weak solution, Paul decided to take the search for a solution south of the border to the States. Knowing that the southern states were ravaged by termites this is where the search began. After some time and many conversations he came across an organization called Nisus Corp. who carry a product called Bora Care, a product that treats for termites, carpenter ants and wood boring beetles. Thinking this was too good to be true, Paul dug into the science behind the product and researched its history. To the excitement he found that the product had been in existence for 15 years manufactured by Nisus Corp. The most exciting part was that it was discovered the Canadian Federal Government had just approved the product for use in Canada. The Bora Care product is designed to be installed directly to the wood structure of a home, fence, deck, shed, or barn at the construction stage or in existing structures it can be applied to any exposed wood.
Driven by passion to take a solution that worked for his family, Paul began a business called Balson Termite Solutions. A company committed to protecting the homes and communities they live in! Balson Pest Control recently opened a second location in Tiny, Ontario, servicing the Southern Georgian Bay Area - also known as Cottage Country!
