World Pest Day Brings Awareness This Summer
Termites in Maryland can be a very expensive pest problem, one you do not want to have deal with. Unfortunately your home could already be infested with termites and you are likely not to know it. In fact, because of the way termites work they actually cause damage to a structure for years before their handiwork is noticed and if left untreated they can cause enough damage to weaken the entire structure of your home. According to Dow AgroSciences LLC, every year in the U.S. alone, termites are responsible for an estimated 5 billion dollars worth of property damage. They also revealed that termite damage is more common than damage caused by fires, storms and earthquakes.
Eastern Subterranean termites are the wood destroying insects capable of causing extensive damage to properties throughout Maryland, including those dwelling in Howard County. This species of termite lives underground and while they generally forage for food outside, eating the cellulose found in fallen leaves and timber and rotten wood, unfortunately they will also make their way to the inside of buildings through cracks in walls and foundations and will start feeding on and damaging the wood inside.
One of the best types of termite control that is available for use at your Woodstock property is the Sentricon® Termite Elimination System. This system is environmentally friendly and involves placing bait stations around your home with no drilling, digging or trenching involved! This system works to detect and eliminate active termite colonies on your property using bait, that when ingested by worker termites and shared with the rest of the colony, results in complete eradication. Once termite activity is eliminated, the system (and your American Pest termite control professional) continues to monitor for termites 24/7 to prevent a re- infestation. Unlike other methods for eliminating termites, this system requires only a few grams of bait to attract the termites, which lessens its environmental footprint. The Sentricon® system is proven effective after having been used by pest control specialists for the last 15 years. Learn more about American Pests’ termite control in Woodstock, MD!
