MARCH 24 2022 / PEST AND TERMITE
Termites exist in almost every state in the U.S., Alaska being the only exception. Unseen to most homeowners, these silent pests can cause a considerable amount of damage to a home. Termites are responsible for billions of dollars in property damage each year within the United States.
In fact, they cause more damage than any other pest or natural disaster. For a termite infestation to start, it only takes one little crack in your foundation. A crack as small as one thirty-second of an inch is large enough for termites to gain safe passage inside where they can start chewing away at your equity.
The Kingdom Rises
Termites live in their own little kingdoms under the earth. Within these kingdoms each termite has its own role, each vital for the survival of the colony. Above all is the queen. Her sole job is to reproduce with the king termites, laying over a billion eggs in her lifetime. There are also soldiers in this kingdom who protect against predators, such as ants, spiders, and other insects.
Swarmers are equipped with wings and have the sole purpose of finding a new place to build a colony. If you see swarmers wandering about in your home, they most likely are the result of a colony that has existed for years inside your walls, unnoticed. Then there are workers, little home wreckers intent on finding the nearest source of food whether it be a dead tree stump or your new mahogany coffee table. These minions of the queen dig and build tunnels out from the kingdom to the nearest source of food.
If this happens to be your home, and if you have had the foresight to have the Sentricon System put in place, the nearest food they will find is sure to be their death.
The Kingdom Falls
The Sentricon System kills the termites at their source by offering bait which is picked up by worker termites and brought back to the kingdom. This bait is more appealing to termites than wood itself, making it the first thing termites salvage for their colony.
These above-ground Sentricon Systems are placed around the perimeter of your home allowing for one of the thousands of tunnels dug by workers to come in contact with Sentricon bait. Once the bait is returned to the kingdom, it is fed to the entirety of the population, killing all threats from the inside out.
Your home is your castle. Do not let termites invade and destroy your domain. The Sentricon System is the best termite removal and deterrent money can buy. Invest in your home's future. Protect your kingdom.
