Are you on the fence? Are you wondering if an annual termite inspection is the right way to go? Hopefully, this short list will help you to put things into perspective.

Termites Are Sneaky

If subterranean termites were feeding on your home right now, would you know it? Chances are, you wouldn't. Subterranean termites behave in a way that makes detection difficult. They tunnel under the ground, feed inside wood, and rarely show themselves.

Termites Never Stop

Subterranean termites don't sleep. They are simple organisms that can be active 24 hours a day. And, here in Brentwood, they can be active 365 days a year. Our service professionals have found active termites underneath a layer of snow.

Termites Are Destructive

Each year, subterranean termites cost U.S. property owners over $5 billion. That is more than fires, earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, and tornadoes, combined. While we can't tell you exactly how harmful termites in Tennessee are, we can assure you that having these insects invade your home is a serious problem. If they go undetected and untreated, they can do a lot of damage.

Termite Damage Isn't Covered

If you're thinking that your home insurance policy will protect you from having to pay for subterranean termite damage, you should go check it. Most policies don't. That means you're going to be left holding the bill when sneaky termites feed tirelessly on your home. No Brentwood homes should be without termite control and protection.

How do you stop sneaky termites that never rest? The termite control experts here at All-American Pest Control trust the Sentricon® System with Always Active™. This system makes detection a breeze because termite activity is easily seen in the discrete bait stations that are installed around your foundation perimeter. Best of all, when subterranean termites come to attack your home, Sentricon® with Always Active™ doesn't wait for your service professional to do something about those termites. The active ingredient begins spreading immediately, from termite to termite, sometimes eliminating the threat before baits stations are inspected.

Even with Sentricon® with Always Active™, inspections are important. If your home is attacked by more than one colony or the colony attacking your home is larger than normal, your service professional will need to replace compromised stations with more potent cartridges that will ensure elimination.

Don't let your home be a meal for sneaky termites. Reach out to us and learn more about Sentricon® with Always Active™ and how All-American Pest Control protects homes and businesses in Middle Tennessee with this powerful termite control system.
