Gaithersburg Pest Control for Termites

A worker termite grows to be about 1/4 of an inch in length, it is a creamy white color, eyeless, and soft-bodied: not exactly what you would think of when describing a highly destructive pest. But highly destructive is exactly what termites are.

In fact, they are responsible for causing billions of dollars’ worth of damages all across the United States each year. Termites are a pest that needs to be prevented in order to protect your home from the severe damages that they can cause. 

In addition to professional prevention measures, some steps that you can take around your home and property to deter termites include:


⭐ Replace older, decaying mulch on your property with new mulch each year; termites are attracted to decaying organic materials.

⭐ Avoid over-watering your lawn; termites are attracted to very moist soil and moisture in general.

⭐ Fix leaky outdoor fixtures and hoses that can cause water to pool around your home.

⭐ Keep wooden structures (swing sets, fences) that make contact with soil as far away from your home as possible.

⭐ Place woodpiles and compost piles away from the outside of your home.

⭐ Remove old tree stumps, fallen trees, and piles of organic debris from your property.

⭐ Inside your home, fix leaky pipes and fixtures; remove and replace wooden structures from your home that have been damaged by water.

⭐ Use air conditioners or dehumidifiers to reduce moisture levels.


To help prevent and control termites in Gaithersburg homes and businesses, we provide thorough and accurate termite inspections, the installation of the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System to eliminate termite colonies and prevent future infestations, the continuous monitoring of your property by our highly trained and experienced technicians, and the regular maintenance of Sentricon® with Always Active™.
