Turn That Frown Upside Down with This Important Info on Home Termite Treatments
It’s easy to assume the best home termite treatment is a repellent. There are many companies selling the idea that a perimeter treatment featuring a “cheap” repellent termiticide will protect your home or property from termite infestation and costly damages. Perimeter treatments with repellent termiticides can provide a small amount of protection. However, it’s incredibly difficult to create an unbroken barrier around your property. This is true even when the solution is applied by a trained specialist.
In Georgia, we have more than our fair share of termites; so, they will eventually find a way to your home. These bugs may be small, but they’re capable of producing massive amounts of expensive damage. You need a solution capable of providing you with consistent protection. Consequently, the two top-rated termite control products in the country are not repellents. Instead, these ingenious products take termites out.
If you really want to protect your property from termite damage, invest in one of the following home termite treatment products:
Available as a liquid application, Termidor® can only be handled by approved pest and termite control specialists. Termidor® is undetectable to termites; so, while they dig and forage, they also collect Termidor on their bodies and pass it to other termites by way of grooming and feeding. Termidor® is especially effective because it’s transmission from insect to insect, quickly impacts every member of a colony.
How effective is Termidor®? Its manufacturer, BASF, has proven in repeated trials that the product is capable of horizontal transfers, from worker to worker, and vertical transfers, from worker to reproducer. This combination leads to colony elimination (not just the elimination of those termites who come into direct contact with the product). Termidor® is highly effective, either as a preventive measure or as an active colony solution, but it is not the only choice available.
Termidor® is a registered trademark of the BASF Corporation.
Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System with Always Active™ Technology
Sentricon® with Always Active™ utilizes termite baiting stations for colony elimination, but it works a bit differently than other termite bating products on the market. Many termite bait products work to disrupt reproduction or control only those termites that come into contact with the termite bait. However, Sentricon® with Always Active™ takes an ingenious shortcut. The active ingredient prevents termites from molting, an essential stage in development. Colonies die out long before their existing members die of natural causes. More than 60 scientific studies prove its ability to wipe out even the most stubborn infestations. Its also a notably green option.
How does it work? The mode of action of the active ingredient isn’t the only thing different about Sentricon® with Always Active™. Most bait systems use stations installed around a property. These stations are periodically loaded with active termite bait only after termites are located in that specific station (not all stations on the property). Sentricon® with Always Active™ stations are active (loaded with active termite bait) from the moment they’re installed! Termites searching for food will locate them and start taking the product back to the colony leading to colony elimination! That means the system is working to protect your home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year!
