What do ants and termites look like

Is it an Ant with Wings or a Termite with Wings?

How to tell the difference between flying ants and flying termites?

Is it an Ant or a Termite?

Termites typically keep themselves hidden so more than likely if you are seeing flying or swarming termites it is probably the reproductive swarm. The problem is flying termites look a lot like swarming ants.

Here’s how to tell if it is an ant or a termite;

Wings: On ants the front pair is longer than the back, On termites they are of equal size

Waist: Ants’ are narrow and pinched, Termites are less defined and thicker

Antennae: Ants are elbowed. Termites are straight.

If you can not tell we are always here to identify them for you.

Does Sentricon Work

Does Sentricon Termite Control Work?

In 1998 we had to ask ourselves this. We had been using liquid termiticides for 30 years. With liquids you cannot get to every spot in an existing home. We were authorized to be one of the select companies to be able to use the Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination System. We had about 5 homes that had been treated with liquid termiticides that had continual termite problems. The homes were installed with Sentricon at no cost to the homeowner. If we were using a product we wanted to be 100% confident. I am pleased to say within 6 months all the termite activity infesting the homes was eliminated. These home never had termites in them again as long as the Sentricon was protecting the home. We did have termite colonies show up periodically in the stations as new colonies tried to move in. They were quickly eliminated. The above photo is one of an A/G(above/ground) station that was installed on a garage floor. You can see how the termites consumed the bait. We continue to use the Sentricon System today to eliminate termites. Quality service is the key to the Sentricon. We are proud to be one of the Select companies to be able to use Sentricon.
