Our Termite Control Process
A-1 Pest Control follows a four-step process for termite inspection. We will:
- Complete a thorough inspection of your property to identify if there is existing termite activity
- Assess the severity of the infestation
- Assess the amount of termite damage
- identify conducive conditions
Based on our findings, we’ll recommend a treatment plan and provide you with a termite control quote.
The Sentricon® System
Preferred by many homeowners and commercial property owners because of the affordable, flat rate and effectiveness at getting rid of termites, the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System utilizes bait to attract and effectively destroy subterranean termite populations. A-1 professionals are Authorized Operators of the Sentricon technology and know exactly how to inspect and treat your property. The in-ground bait stations are placed strategically around areas where the termite colonies thrive. The termites prefer the bait to wood and eat it, causing a halting of their maturation process. When the termites can’t mature (molt), they die. As the termites die off, so does the queen, effectively destroying the entire colony. The Sentricon System meets code requirements and can be used near sensitive areas such as schools, hospitals and bodies of water. The bait traps are accessed by covers that can only be opened with a special key. Once installed, A-1 Pest Control will conduct a yearly inspection of the bait stations. If the structure qualified for a termite warranty, renewal is available at the time of the inspection.
Termidor® is a reliable and trusted form of liquid termite control. To control Eastern subterranean termites, Termidor is applied along the foundation of homes and buildings creating an invisible barrier. The undetectable liquid does not deter the termites; instead, the termites both walk through and eat the odorless, tasteless material. When they eat it they begin to die, they also begin to die when they encounter it. However, the benefits don’t stop there. Termidor features Transfer Effect technology which means once a termite encounters the liquid they become “carriers” and transfer the Termidor to other termites, effectively killing other members of the termite colony. Along with the initial treatment, A-1 Pest Control will conduct a yearly inspection and renew your termite warranty, if applicable.
Termite Pre-Treatment Services
For all new residential property owners and builders, you’ll need a professional to perform your termite pre-treatment service. A-1 Pest Control’s technicians are well versed in methods of pre-treating soil, slabs, and wood and can provide the new construction subterranean termite service that is required in North Carolina. This service is also available for commercial and home remodeling, should it be required at the time the construction permit is pulled or if you simply want the extra protection against termites.
