Termite Services For Bethesda Homes & Businesses

Termites can invade Bethesda homes and cause major structural damage that can become very expensive for homeowners to repair. The best way to eliminate an infestation and prevent future problems with these damaging pests is to get help from termite control experts. At American Pest we offer two solutions for termites, the highly effective and environmentally friendly Sentricon® Termite Elimination System, or the more traditional route of using a liquid barrier.

The Sentricon® system is non-invasive (no digging or trenching require), it works by placing bait stations around your home. The foraging termites are attracted to the bait and will ingest it and bring the bait back to the colony, eliminating it completely. After your infestation is eliminated the system remains in place and is regularly maintained and monitored to prevent future problems with termites.

For the more conventional route to control termites, we use a liquid barrier treatment using Altriset®. A trench is dug around your home and Altriset® is introduced into the soil, the termites will come into contact with the treated soil and will bring it back to the colony, again eliminating all of its members.

 I called American Pest because of an ant problem but they wound up treating so much more. Great conversation with the main office and the tech who came to the house was incredibly punctual, courteous, extremely knowledgeable/excited about his work. Happy to say I no longer share the house with ants or any other insects!
