Is Preventative Termite Control Necessary?

As an Oklahoma resident, you may be surprised to learn that your home or business is likely more prone to termite infestation than other states. The unique soil and weather patterns in this region of the country make subterranean termites a real threat that shouldn’t be taken lightly. For this reason, many homeowners will invest in preventative termite control to protect their most valuable assets and limit the chances of costly repairs.

The average termite colony can include anywhere between 50,000 to 1 million termites and up to 14 subterranean termites can exist on a single acre of land. For this reason, your home could easily become a buffet for these destructive pests. While the damage may not be visible immediately, without preventative termite control you could be footing the repair bills needed to correct the damage that they have caused.

In the termite colony structure, workers are responsible for sourcing food, bringing it back to the colony and detecting any danger that the environment may pose. Any food that they find will be returned to the other members of the colony including soldiers, reproductives and the queen. By understanding this behavior, targeted and effective treatments can be utilized to remove entire colonies from your property.

For superior termite control and prevention, Emtec Pest Control recommends the use of The Sentricon® System. This revolutionary bait system takes advantage of learned termite behaviors to impact the entire colony instead of just the termite workers that come into contact with sprays or other bait systems. Once the colony has been eliminated, your bait tubes will become a 24/7 monitoring station to ensure they don’t return!
