Hendersonville is home to the Eastern subterranean termite. This species of termite lives in the ground and feeds on sources of wood below the surface and above the surface. If it finds the wood inside your Hendersonville home, you could have some trouble. Over time, subterranean termites can eat you out of house and home, literally. The worst part is that it can be difficult to detect these insects. They don't like to come out into the light or the open air. So it is important to take steps to protect your property even when you don't see any signs of termite activity.

Spring is an important time of year for subterranean termites in Hendersonville. This is when they swarm. Mature nests in the area send out male and female winged alates in search of new locations to build new nests. If you don't want them building nests on your property, there are a few things you can do to deter them.


While termite swarmers don't eat wood, their babies do. For this reason, they are attracted to a yard that has soft wood food sources. If you address these, you can make your property less attractive to termites. Here are a few tips to help you prepare for spring termite swarmers:

  • Remove logs, stumps, and trees with heart rot.

  • Move wood piles or lumber away from your exterior and elevate them.

  • Move wood pallets away from your exterior.

  • Dig up and remove wood that has been buried in your yard.

  • Remove sources of cardboard. If you have any cardboard boxes on the ground, these can also be targeted by termites.

  • Address any wood-to-soil contact on structures.

  • Repair any rotting wood on your home, deck, stairs, fence, and other structures.


Swarmers are strong and able to handle dry conditions to a certain extent, but their babies aren't. For this reason, they will look for locations that are damp. Everything you do to reduce moisture around your home will help to prevent swarmers from building a nest on your property. Here are a few tips.

  • Remove debris from your gutters and make sure there is a clear path for rainwater.

  • Fix any damage to your gutter system.

  • Remove unnecessary vegetation from your landscaping.

  • Repair any plumbing issues.

  • Blow the leaves out of your landscaping and remove them from your yard.

  • Address moist areas that are densely shaded by trimming tree canopy.

Proactive Termite Protection

Spring is the perfect time to invest in termite-damage prevention. At All-American Pest Control, we help Hendersonville property owners prevent termite damage by installing The Sentricon® System with Always Active™. This termite bait solution outsmarts termites and uses workers against their own colonies.

  • Termite workers never stop looking for food, even when they've found a source. This is why they always find the Sentricon® bait.

  • The bait in the Sentricon® System is scientifically proven to be more interesting to termites than wood.

  • While liquid treatments wear out over time, the Sentricon® bait gets even more appetizing to termites as it ages.

  • The Sentricon® System with Always Active™ works slowly enough to get deep into a colony before the workers are alerted to the threat.

The best part about Sentricon® with Always Active™ is that you'll know when your home has been protected. Unlike liquid termiticide treatments, it is easy to see when termites try to damage a home that is protected with the Sentricon® System. Technicians open the bait station and are able to see where the bait has been eaten, or find termite workers and soldiers present.

If you have questions about Sentricon® with Always Active™ or you'd like to schedule to meet with one of our certified professionals, reach out to All-American Pest Control today. We're here to assist you with all your pest control needs.
