Are Termite Treatments Effective?

Professional pest control companies typically use one of a few reliable, effective types of termite treatments that work to eliminate active infestations.

Many termite treatments exist, but not all of them possess the same level of effectiveness in eliminating a termite infestation. If a reliable treatment is administered properly, termites can almost always be eliminated effectively. After treating a home for termites, it’s crucial to get regular treatments or maintenance in order to prevent future termite activity!

The most effective termite treatments by Active Pest Control in Georgia and TennesseeWhat Termite Treatment Works Best?

There’s a lot of debate about which termite treatment works best, often comparing liquid termite treatments with baiting systems (Sentricon). The general consensus is that both of these treatment methods are effective in controlling active termite infestations as well as preventing new ones. Sentricon, the treatment of choice at Active Pest Control, is a great system for those who prefer to have a professional regularly monitor their home and baiting stations for effectiveness in keeping termites away. It is 100% safe for the environment, targets only termites, and works not only to prevent termite damage but also to eradicate the colonies that are sending workers to feed. There’s endless reasons why Sentricon is trusted to effectively get rid of termites; so many so that even The White House uses it to keep termites away! A basic rundown of how Sentricon works includes the following steps:

    1. Bait stations are installed in the ground above your home. The scientifically engineered bait begins working to destroy any active colonies.
    2. The active ingredient in this engineered bait, which is nearly ten times more attractive to termites than wood, works to prevent termites from maturing. When the termites are unable to molt, they will die.
    3. Ongoing service and inspections by a professional will ensure the Sentricon bait system continues to work month after month and year after year.

Do Termite Treatments Ever Fail?

Even when using the most effective treatment option, there’s no guarantee it will rid you entirely of your termite infestation upon the first try. Thankfully, companies such as Active Pest Control back up their Sentricon treatment plans with a guarantee to ensure termites will be removed from your property and kept away for good! Using a highly effective method will provide a continuous barrier of protection against your home.
