For most people, buying a home is the most important investment they'll ever make. Some even rely upon the equity of their home to be their nest egg when they retire. Owning a home is a big deal, and a huge investment. But termites could care less about your equity. These pests, some brown and winged and some wingless creamy white, consume wood, and they will tear apart your investment one bite at a time.

What is most scary about termites, is that by the time you see the damage they're causing, it's often too late. Your porch begins to sink down on the corner. Your kitchen floor has a slope to it. The sliding door off the dining room doesn't slide shut any more. And you don't even know that termites have been living in your wall voids for years. Unlike ants, termites don't leave many signs that they are around. You might even see one and mistake it for a flying ant. Look closely. Flying ants look like ants in the body. Termites are fatter, with no distinct sections. If they are already infesting your home, sawdust is the biggest clue. You'll find it in the basement, in the cracks of your living room, down the side of your foundation, and in the corners of your living spaces. Sometimes you may even see warn marks on your deck, fence, and wood siding. If you do, call a pest professional immediately.

This is not a pest you can live with. These bugs can destroy your home. They are not looking to cohabitate. That is why it is so important to kill them before they can infest your home.

All-American Pest Control can monitor for termite activity, and eradicate them, using the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System™. Sentricon® is 100% environmentally-friendly, and safe for your home, your children, and your pets. It uses a bait system to control termites. Worker termites bring the bait back to the colonies, killing the queen, along with the rest of the colony. There's no odor, and no drilling. This system works! That is why it has been recognized as a Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award winner for environmental responsibility.

Don't take the chance of losing the equity of your home to termites. Kill them. And, keep other termites away for good. Your home, and your family are too important not to invest in termite protection.
