Does Sentricon Termite Control Actually Work?

 

In 1998 we had to ask ourselves this exact question. 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 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, but 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.

Carpenter Ants

Carpenter Ants:

Carpenter Ants get in many unusual places to nest. Carpenter Ants differ from termites as they do not consume wood. They chew wood to get places to nest. What you see above is called Frass, This is from where the ants chew wood and push it out of the nest. Sometimes you will see body fragments of ants that may have died and body parts pushed out. Carpenter ants are very common in Texas. They are active all year around. Their natural nesting sites are trees. Carpenter ants are some of the largest ants in Texas

Why Home Pest Control In Dallas Is A Necessity

termitesmallYou know, there are those among us who say that we should try to live as peacefully with nature as possible. And for the most part, we agree.

In fact, if we could write a letter to the termites telling them that we’ve left a stack of wood for them out back as long as they stay out of our homes, we would be in the letter writing business. But the fact is, sometimes species are at odds with each other, and that’s why we’re in the pest control business.

But what happens when a pest is much more than just a pest? Sometimes there’s real danger.

Termites: It’s this simple…if your home includes wooden supports, termites want to eat your home. That means that they’re at odds with your interest of living indoors and your interest of having a strong, well-supported home. At Sureguard we specialize in termite control, because just asking them to leave isn’t going to do it. You need home pest control that gets results.

Mosquitos: What’s the deadliest animal alive? Crocodiles? Lions? Nope, it’s the mosquito. Because it’s so amazing at transmitting the malaria virus, mosquitos are far and away the most dangerous animal humanity has ever encountered.

Of course, malaria isn’t very prevalent in the United States, but mosquitos are also carriers of the West Nile virus, a potentially deadly virus that has been found in 22 Texas counties.

Mice: In 1993 something started killing Native Americans in the Four Corners region of the southwest. It was the first American instance of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, a virus that kills around one-third of those infected. The hantavirus is transmitted by mice, usually deer mice. You don’t even have to see the mice in order to be infected…while it can be transmitted by a bite, it is most often through handling of mice feces or through the air as people clean an area that’s infested. Texas is fifth in the nation in terms of hantavirus cases.
