There are many ways you can work to prevent termites from targeting and damaging your Hendersonville home. You can remove wood sources from your yard such as scrap wood, firewood, and wood debris. You can address moisture issues, such as faulty grading, flashing drainage issues, and plumbing leaks. And you can do routine inspections to look for shelter tubes on your home. If you do this, you can reduce your chances of an infestation. But you'll never know for sure that your home is free of termites. Why? Because termites in Hendersonville are sneaky.
Why are termites sneaky?
They live in the ground and come into Hendersonville homes from the ground. Once they start feeding on the inside of your home, they can feed on your home for years without being detected. That's a scary thought! But you don't have to live in fear of termites. There is a way you can protect your Hendersonville home from the destructive impact of termites.
What works to protect a home from termites?
In the last two decades, we've seen the emergence of a new gold standard in termite control and colony elimination. It is the Sentricon® System with Always Active™. This is a bait system that is always active around your property. When termites come to feed on your home, they discover the bait inside discreet Sentricon® bait stations installed around the perimeter of your home. This bait has been proven scientifically to be more interesting to termites than wood.
Okay, they like the bait; but what if they don't find it?
You don't have to worry about that. When termite workers find a food source, they don't focus all their efforts on one point of interest. Some workers will continue to look for other sources of food even as they feed on the first. This is bad news when they attack your home without you knowing it. They'll hit many points at once. But it is good news if you have Sentricon® with Always Active™ installed. Termites will find the bait and share the active ingredient inside the bait.
How do we know they'll share the active ingredient?
Termites can't help themselves. Sharing with each other is what they do. Workers feed on food and share what they've eaten with other termites in their colony as they pass each other in their tunnels. This process is called trophallaxis. Slowly, one by one, the ingredient is shared and it causes the termites to lose their ability to molt. When termites can't molt, they die.
How do you know it will get all the termites?
The Sentricon® System with Always Active™ is scientifically proven to eliminate an entire colony of termites consisting of thousands of individuals with as little as one tube of bait. And this ability to eliminate colonies isn't just a lab experiment or a University study. Sentricon® has more than two decades of real-world success.
