Termites can invade Bethesda homes and cause major structural damage that can become very expensive for homeowners to repair. The best way to eliminate an infestation and prevent future problems with these damaging pests is to get help from termite control experts. At American Pest we offer two solutions for termites, the highly effective and environmentally friendly Sentricon® Termite Elimination System, or the more traditional route of using a liquid barrier.
The Sentricon® system is non-invasive (no digging or trenching require), it works by placing bait stations around your home. The foraging termites are attracted to the bait and will ingest it and bring the bait back to the colony, eliminating it completely. After your infestation is eliminated the system remains in place and is regularly maintained and monitored to prevent future problems with termites.
For the more conventional route to control termites we use a liquid barrier treatment using Altriset®. A trench is dug around your home and Altriset® is introduced into the soil, the termites will come into contact with the treated soil and will bring it back to the colony, again eliminating all of its members.
Bed bugs are a problem for homeowners all across the country and unfortunately the residents of Bethesda are no exception. At American Pest we offer the following in order to control and prevent problems with bed bugs in your Bethesda home:
