The simple answer is to get help as quickly as possible from an Olney termite control experts at American Pest!
Whether termites have invaded your home for only a few weeks or if they have been living there for many months we can provide complete elimination. No termite will be left behind. Treatment options include:
Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System
The Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System is excellent at providing complete elimination while being non-invasive (no trenches are required) and very environmentally sound. Bait stations are placed around your home and filled with a very small amount of bait, the termites are attracted to the bait and take it back to the colony; the active ingredient in the bait provides complete elimination of the entire colony! This system also provides excellent prevention against future infestations. The system will remain behind and be routinely monitored and maintained to stop future infestation before they have a chance to even begin.
Liquid Barrier Treatment
Depending on the needs of you and your property a conventional route may be taken to get rid of a termite infestation. Liquid barrier treatment begins with a trench being dug around your home and Altriset® is introduced into the soil. The foraging termites will come into contact with the treated soil and bring it back to the colony, effectively eliminating all of its members over approximately a 3 month period.

Pests don’t just affect the homes they are invading. They can and do damage to the structure of a home and destroy personal belongings, but they also greatly affect the people living inside of the house as well. Pests can carry and transmit a variety of serious diseases. They can sting and/or bite, contaminate food, and their mere presence can cause sleeplessness and stress.
The Olney pest professionals at American Pest can help to eliminate pests and stop the damages that they can cause to both your home and family through our three home pest control plans: Preferred Care, Preferred Care Plus and Preferred Care Complete.

Mosquitoes and ticks are two specific pests that most all homeowners want to keep controlled on their Olney property. Both species feed on the blood of people and animals, both are hard to control because they live and breed outside, and finally and probably most importantly- both species carry and transmit some very serious diseases.
Mosquitoes are attracted to properties that have areas of standing water and thick dense landscaping and grasses to hide in. Ticks are often introduced onto properties by wild animals; they then hide in similar spots as mosquitoes-dark, dense, moist environments. Completely eliminating either species from your Olney property is not possible, but it is quite possible to greatly reduce their numbers!
Controlling mosquitoes and ticks is a difficult task, but the pros at American Pest have developed a very effect treatment solution to reduce their numbers during their active seasons- spring, summer, and fall! Our mosquito and tick program includes the following services:
A thorough inspection of your property, completed by our specially trained technicians to located the areas that are attracting mosquitoes and ticks.
The treatment of those tick and mosquito hiding and breeding sites using a specialized misting service throughout their entire active season.
