Termites Pose Big Trouble◀ Back To Blog

According to the National Pest Management Association, this year alone, more than 5 million homes in the United States will be damaged by subterranean termite infestations and homeowners will face an estimated $5 billion in property damage. Homeowners have insurance for the possibility of fire or weather destroying their home, yet the damage from termites is much more likely and not covered under homers insurance.
Celebrating Termite Awareness Week, the possibility of termite damage to Albany NY area homes is real. Signs of termites include termite damage and termite swarms. Discovering any signs of pests, it is always recommended to contact your local Clifton Park NY pest management company.
How do you get rid of termites?
There are few options when deciding how to treat your subterranean termite problem. Thomas Pest Services, offer an innovative solution that eliminates the entire termite colony from the site and protects the structure from subterranean termites for years to come — the SENTRICON System.
The SENTRICON® Termite Colony Elimination System is a revolutionary termite baiting technology that provides ongoing structural protection from termites using termite bait only when and where termites are present.
How does Sentricon, termite baiting work?
- A license, pest management professional installs the SENTRICON System in the ground around the outside perimeter of the property. The SENTRICON stations, which lie flush with the ground and contain monitoring devices, are checked regularly for termites by an authorized technician.
- With Always Active technology, Recruit® HD termite bait is placed in all the Sentricon® stations from the very beginning, so termites can begin feeding on it as soon as they find a station. This process gets rid of termites and the colony sooner and keeps property protection continuous.
- A Thomas Pest Services representative will return to monitor the Sentricon system.
When a termite swarm occurs, it is your notification that a subterranean termite problem may be present somewhere in the structure. Thomas Pest Services offers a long term termite solution that eliminates the colony from the structure, the Sentricon Termite Elimination System. Sentricon is a termite bait system installed around the perimeter of the home and it is green! Termites will begin to swarm soon, so if you see piles of insect wings, termite damage, or other signs, contact Thomas Pest Services for a free inspection. Termites eat wood 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, do not let termites damage your structure!
