As the temperature continues to drop, termites are still busy finding wood sources and potentially making their way into your home. While the common misconception is that termites will go dormant in the winter, they will actually continue to work throughout the winter months although their progress may slow. Unfortunately, without the proper safeguards in place, your home could still be at risk. In this article, we will look at some of the steps you can take to eliminate termites during this slower period and ensure your home stays protected in the spring.
It’s important to realize that termite season never really ends and these pests will continue to cause damage year-round. While they may be more active and noticeable throughout the summer, their burrowing habits and the warmth of your home could be all they need to continue their quest for wood sources. But what steps can you take to ensure your home isn’t an easy target? And how can you ensure that you are successfully removing any existing termites that may already be there?
The termite control experts at Emtec Pest Control have been safely eliminating termites from Oklahoma homes for over 20 years through the use of the Sentricon® System. In fact, we are so confident that it works we even use it in our own homes to successfully deter and kill termite populations that may be present. Unlike liquid treatments, Sentricon® is guaranteed to eliminate the entire termite colony without impacting your home, yard or pets.
The Sentricon® System provides 24-hour support through the use of a special bait that was developed to destroy the entire colony by relying on their unique feeding habits. As worker termites eat the bait, they return to the colony and regurgitate to feed the other members. This, in turn, means that all termites in the colony, including the queen, will ingest the bait and die. Once you kill the queen, the colony can no longer reproduce. This is why The Sentricon® System is so effective: is uses a bait that is extremely appealing to termites, even more so than wood, and does not cause them to feel unsafe and alert the rest of the colony to danger.
