How To Stop Termites Before They Do Damage

Here in Tennessee, we have subterranean termites. If you're not familiar with these termites, they are the most destructive termites in the United States, they can tunnel as far as the length of a football field to find a food source, and they can feed on a home for years without showing any signs that they are present. The worst time to find out you have subterranean termites is when you start to notice doors and windows sticking, walls bulging, ceilings sagging, and floors sinking. When this starts to happen, the damage is often unrepairable.

The way termites damage a home is from the inside out. This is hard-to-fix damage. Often, the only solution is to replace entire sections that have been infested. So, if you're thinking about waiting until you see signs of termites or damage being done, we hope you'll reconsider. There is no reason you should allow termites to eat you out of house and home when there is a pest control solution that stops these pests before they can do any damage.

At All-American Pest Control, we believe in the Sentricon® System with Always Active™. It is a bait system that directly targets termites, but no other creature on your property. There are no pesticide agents used. There is no need for trenching or drilling. And you'll hardly notice the strategically placed bait stations. If you do, you'll just be reminded that your investment is being protected 24 hours a day 365 days a year--and that is a good feeling.

How does Sentricon® with Always Active™ work to stop termites? When termites tunnel onto your property in search of food, they find bait stations filled with a food that is scientifically proven to be more desirable that wood, and that is saying something since their primary food source is wood. Once they take the bait, it is shared with other workers and eventually shared with the termites in the colony that sent those workers. When the bait is shared with the queen, the queen dies, and the colony dies with her.

Okay. But what if the termite workers don't find the bait? One of the reasons Sentricon® with Always Active™ is so powerful is that it uses the natural behavior patterns of worker termites against them. When a food source is found, workers explore all around the location. This guarantees that they will find the bait.

You don't have to wait until termites damage your property. With All-American Pest Control and Sentricon® with Always Active™, you can protect your investment from infestation. Get in touch with us today for quick answers to your questions or to set up a free home evaluation today.
