The still-warm temperatures in South Carolina, along with the humidity that Hurricane Florence has brought in, means that termites are apt to resurface. Under these conditions, termites will gladly remain active to feed on the damp wood that’s around and continue to expand their colonies. If you haven’t heard of Sentricon® System with Always Active™, you might want to pay attention. This system has proven to be extremely effective against termites AND remain effective even throughout hurricane season all while remaining environmentally safe!
Sentricon® with Always Active™ is the most effective, environmentally friendly method of removing termites. It’s been used in millions of homes and commercial facilities, even the White House! It’s scientifically backed to wipe out an entire colony. How can this be? Sentricon® with Always Active™ bait stations will be placed around your yard by Spencer’s Pest Service professionals. These stations hold the bait inside, not releasing any substances into the ground, therefore remaining environmentally friendly. The stations will attract the worker termites that are responsible for feeding the entire colony. The bait keeps these guys from molting, and if they can’t molt they die. Once the worker ants die, they aren’t able to feed the rest of their colony. Unable to feed, the entire colony will soon die off.
What’s even more impressive is that during storms Sentricon® with Always Active™ remains safe and intact. The stations won’t wash away with heavy rains and storms, meaning no matter the weather the bait stays put and actively works to fend off termites 24/7 year-round. Sentricon® with Always Active™ provides many benefits and is the best way to protect your home from the damage of termites. If you're a homeowner in South Carolina, you should consider getting the system to protect your property.
Despite their size, termites can cause very large amounts of damage. The cost of termite damage in the U.S. is estimated to be around five billion dollars! The reason these pests get away with so much damage is that they feed on the wooden structures inside your home. It’s common for homeowners to be unaware of their existence for a long period of time. Their presence is usually given away once the damage has become severe enough to notice from the outside. Left on their own with nothing to hold them back, they can make an entire building collapse.
Unfortunately, we have some of the most destructive types of termites in the Southeast: Eastern subterranean termites. These termites are extremely persistent and don’t respond well to DIY treatments. To avoid the devastating damage that termites are responsible for or if you think you’re dealing with a termite infestation right now, Sentricon® with Always Active™ can help eliminate the stress and worry. Spencer’s Pest Services is happy to install the system and take care of the termite concerns. Contact us today to find out more!
