There is not a single pest that can cause as much damage to a home as the termite. Their chewing on your wood structures from support beams to subflooring, decks to doors and window trim, cabinets and wood framing can destroy not only the beauty but the integrity of your home. Learning how to spot an infestation and knowing what professional termite prevention and treatment services are available is key to protecting your home from these destructive and damaging pests. Innovative Pest Control uses the Sentricon® System with Always Active™ to treat and prevent termite infestations in your Texas home.
How Termites Destroy Your Home
Termites feed and survive on wood. They will tunnel, chew and set up their colonies throughout your wood structures destroying whatever they get into. In East Texas, we know that termites are an inevitability so it’s foolish not to take preventative measures to avoid the damage from termites.
Signs Of A Termite Infestation
There are several ways to spot an infestation of termites. If you happen to spot the actual termites that’s usually a clear sign you have an infestation. A lot of times you won’t see the actual termites, but you may see other signs such as discarded wings or hear noises in your walls. You may also spot tubes or tunnel-like structures around your basement or other areas or see what looks like sawdust piles.
How To Protect Your Property From Termite Damage
There is really no do-it-yourself way to prevent or treat termites; the only reliable to manage a termite infestation is with professional termite control. Sentricon® with Always Active™ can be used to prevent termites by being applied to new construction homes or used as a barrier around existing homes. If an infestation is already present in your home an Innovative Pest Control specialist can use Sentricon® with Always Active™ to destroy the existing colonies.
Sentricon® with Always Active™ bait traps are set underground to form a protective barrier around your home. As the termites carry the bait back to the colony it destroys the colony, including the queen. Without a queen, the rest of the colony cannot survive. Don’t wait until you have termite damage to deal with from an active infestation. Call Innovative Pest Control for a free inspection, treatment, and protection plan for your Texas home.
