Termite Baiting Treatment with Sentricon
The Sentricon System is the most successful termite baiting system and has been proven to eliminate termite colonies. It uses an active ingredient in a cellulose matrix that termites feed on. The termite bait stations are placed evenly in-ground around your property. Termites may be active around your home and the even distribution of the stations provides targets to attract them to. Termites feed on the bait and share it with the other termites until the colony gradually exterminates.
There are benefits for the Sentricon stations being placed around the home versus traditional liquid treatments. There is no need to drill concrete foundations or apply a liquid termiticide. This would only be necessary if you have an active infestation and drilling is required to reach the termites under a slab.More on Baits
Initial Termite Inspection
At the initial termite service, a Dixie Termite Technician performs a complete inspection to identify trouble spots and gauge the extent of the issue. After inspecting the technician will put together a customized treatment plan for your property.
Liquid Termite Treatments with Termidor
Termidor is a non-repellant liquid termiticide and termites cannot detect it. Termidor eliminates termites when they injest the treated soil around the property. Whenever a termite ingests or touches Termidor, it can transfer Termidor to other termites it contacts. These termites, in turn, can become spreaders, behaving normally while they transfer Termidor to other termites they contact—and so on within the colony. Because Termidor is slow-acting, it gives individual termites time to transfer it to others in the population. This unique, spiraling process is called the Transfer Effect, and it can successfully exterminate a colony to protect your home.
With a liquid termite treatment a barrier is created in the soil directly next to the foundation. A treatment zone about 6 inches wide and 6 inches to 1 foot deep is treated and continuous all the way around the homes foundation. Termidor bonds to the soil so when termites begin to make there way towards your home they cross through this soil without even knowing the difference. This allows for the termiticide to spread and exterminate the colony.More on Liquid Treatments
Termite Control Tips for Outside & Inside Your Home
Try to keep shrubs, and other landscaping trimmed and at least 2 feet from the foundation.
Keep wooden fences, planter boxes, and other wood items at least 2 feet from the house.
Do not stack firewood and scrap lumber next to the building. If you keep firewood during the winter then keep it raised off of the ground.
Do not let stucco or siding continue to the ground so the concrete foundation exposed. Termites can get behind stucco or siding and the exposed foundation allows an inspector to find the problem.
Keep crawl spaces and basements clear of wood debris.
Maintain good ventilation to prevent excess moisture.
Cover at least 90% of the soil in the crawl spaces with plastic poly.
