Termite Treatment Options

Anyone that has experienced a termite infestation can tell you that the damage these tiny but powerful pests leave behind is not only heartbreaking, but it is also very costly for the homeowner. Out of all of the harmful pest infestations, termites are the hardest to detect without proper training; therefore, the size of the infestation and the damage left behind are often significant.

Last year, over a billion dollars, was spent in the United States by homeowners for termite extermination and repair work.

With any pest problem in a business or home, it is essential to get ahead of it as soon as you possibly can. The question is, how? There are many choices out there for both elimination and control of future termite problems.

American Pest offers two effective solutions for termite control. We offer both the Sentricon® System with Always Active™, and our liquid treatment option, Altriset. Both are effective means of termite control and elimination.

Sentricon® with Always Active™ is an ecologically responsible baiting system that American Pest has been using for over 15 years. It successfully targets only termites, making the system safe for any wildlife or pets that may come across the baiting station.

Sentricon® with Always Active™ attracts termites to the station, the termites then take the bait back to the rest of the colony. Over time, the colony is eliminated. This system requires no liquids or drilling and uses minimal products. With consistent monitoring by an American Pest professional, you can count on Sentricon® with Always Active™ to prevent future termite activity.

Altriset is also a good choice for termite elimination. Altriset provides a liquid barrier around the entire building several inches below the soil. Termites are then attracted to the spot and take the product back to the rest of the colony.

Over approximately three months, the termite colony will be eliminated. This option, as well as all of the products that American Pest uses, is safe for pets and family members as well as the surrounding ecosystem.

After a complete initial inspection of your home or business for termite activity, our experienced exterminators will go over each process with you to determine which system will be the most effective and make the most sense for your specific circumstances.
