Don't Forget About Termites!
October 5, 2017
It’s time for fall! A Texan fall brings new growth and bright colors, but the heat remains…and so do termite infestations. While termite infestations occur in the springtime, they can be active throughout the year. This is particularly true in warm climates, such as Texas, because without cold weather the termites do not die off. This means that termites are not just a seasonal issue, they are a year-round problem. Termite colonies that are active can go undetected for a long time before being noticed and cause some serious damage. Taking proper care and paying attention to your property will help you detect a termite colony before the damage progresses significantly.
To detect termite colonies keep an eye out for any unexplained damage to your home, termite mud tubes, and the pests themselves. Termites have different variations and can be found having soft creamy white bodies, having creamy white bodies with elongated yellow heads, and being large, dark brown and with wings. Termites love to feed on wood, which can impact the structure of your home. Rebuilding the structure of your home can be time-consuming and extremely expensive. Adams Exterminating Company recommends that property owners are proactive against termites, as they could be damaging your home for months without being detected.
If you have recently detected a termite infestation on your property or are concerned about future infestations, Adams Exterminating Company can provide you with the best termite control solution, the Sentricon® System with Always Active™. Installing Sentricon® with Always Active™ can stop current infestations and prevent new ones from occurring. How does Sentricon® with Always Active™ work? After an Adams Exterminating Company technician inspects and confirms termite activity, they will install termite bait stations around your property that will attract termites. They will feed on the bait and will then bring it to the rest of the colony to consume. Once ingested, termites lose the ability to reproduce and will eventually be eradicated completely. In cases of termite prevention, Sentricon® with Always Active™ will attract the termites initially; stopping the infestation dead in its tracks. Sentricon® with Always Active™ is chosen as Adams Exterminating’s brand of choice because they have used it numerous times without fail. Not to mention, Sentricon® with Always Active™ is highly verified by numerous universities and scientific studies. Just because it’s fall, doesn’t mean that termites are no longer a problem. Sentricon® with Always Active™ is perfect for year round use—and can prevent more infestations in the spring!
