For most people, their home is the single biggest purchase they will ever make. As a result, homeowners do their best to protect this financial asset. If something breaks you have it fixed. Some problems can be fixed without much time or cost for the homeowner while others are a bit more important and require some extra love.
We think that termites should be one of the problems you treat with special care, especially because they are the leading pest in home destruction around the world. To ensure your home has it’s best chance to stay termite-free year-round, we recommend Sentricon® with Always Active™. Why is this the best termite protection money can buy? Let us show you.
How Termites Will Destroy Your Home
Although small, termites are the most destructive pest around the world. Just here in America, termites cost homeowners a staggering 5 billion dollars each year. How do they do this? Silently of course. You see, termites cannot destroy a home quickly. Even a fully mature termite colony is only able to eat the equivalent of a 2x4 in six months.
Termites are so destructive because they're quiet and able to stay hidden. Often, it takes homeowners several years before finding out their home has a termite infestation, and by that time, the damage is done and will likely cost them tens of thousands of dollars in repairs. Here are just a few problems you can expect from a prolonged termite infestation:
Hollowed out wood
Tight-fitting doors and windows
Bubbling wallpaper and or paint
Overly squeaky floorboards
Visual tunneling through structural wood
How Sentricon® System With Always Active™ Works
Sentricon® with Always Active™ is a multi-bait system designed to combat termites around the home. To install Sentricon around a home, multiple stations are placed underground in targeted areas. These stations are armed with a highly attractive and extremely deadly food-based bait. When consumed by termites, this bait acts slowly, not taking it’s a lethal effect until shared with the termite’s colony.
This ensures that not only will workers die, but also their kings, queens, and soldiers. One of the benefits of Sentricon® with Always Active™ is that it keeps workers away and quickly handles any current termite threats on your property. Due to this system's highly alluring bait, any termites eating away at your home will quickly and unknowingly shift their attention to their impending doom.
Sentricon® with Always Active™ also features a wood-based monitoring system to determine the presence of any termite activity. This system is regularly checked by a qualified pest technician and will reveal if any termites have been active on your property recently. When termite activity is detected, the monitoring system is replaced with what we call a Baitube™ containing Recruit™ IV termite bait. This process of detection and treatment is continued on a scheduled basis and requires very little to no effort on your part.
