Why Termites Are the Silent Destroyers of the Pest World

If termites were feeding on your home right now, would you know it? What would you see? Would there be pale-colored worker termites nibbling on your baseboard? Would you find their droppings along walls or in the corners of your kitchen? Would you see holes appearing in your walls? The truth is you wouldn't see any of these things. Subterranean termites are sneaky. They tunnel underground for yards as they search for wood to feed on. If they choose to feed on your home, they'll come up from the ground and tunnel right into the wood, or build shelter tubes in dark, hidden places, to get to the wood of your home. Once inside, they'll continue to remain hidden. Worker termites don't like the light. So they hardly ever chew through tunnel walls and expose their tunnels to the outside world. That is why it is so hard to detect them.

Subterranean termites can even elude an inspection by a trained pest control technician. A technician can get into a crawl space under a home with a flashlight and check every corner for shelter tubes only to miss one thin tube built on the inside of a concrete pier. That's why more and more pest control companies are turning to bait stations to detect the presence of termites.

At All-American Pest Control, we go one step further than simply using bait stations to detect termites. We deploy the Sentricon® System with Always Active™ to actively eliminate subterranean termite colonies when they attack, not months later after checking monitoring stations.

The word "active" in Sentricon® with Always Active™ means that this system doesn't wait for a technician to intervene before it starts eliminating termites. Each station has enough active ingredient to eliminate most colonies on their own. If more than one colony attacks your home, or your home is being invaded by a large colony, that's no problem either. Your technician will add stronger bait if termite activity is detected in any of your bait stations.

When it comes to protecting your Bellevue home from these silent destroyers, there is nothing more powerful and eco-friendly than Sentricon® with Always Active™. Learn more about Sentricon® with Always Active™ today and protect your equity from the harmful impact of subterranean termites. You don't get a second chance to prevent termite damage.
