Protect Your Sherrills Ford, NC Home From Termites

Termites and the damage they cause are not something that should be left up to chance. These pests need to be prevented to protect your home’s structure from being damaged, and your bank account from being lowered after paying repair costs. At A-1, we can protect Sherrills Ford properties from wood-eating termites through our highly effective termite-elimination options. These options include:

  • The Sentricon® System with Always Active™ - This highly recommended and very effective system utilizes non-invasive bait stations that are placed strategically around your property. This system is very eco-friendly as chemicals are never injected into the ground on your property. The bait housed inside the stations is highly attractive to termites and works quickly to eliminate the entire colony, then remains in place to prevent their return in the future.

  • Termidor® Treatments - This trustworthy product is a liquid form of termite control which is applied along the foundations of homes, creating an invisible barrier. Termidor utilizes Transfer Effect technology, meaning once a termite comes into contact with the product they become carriers and bring it back to the colony to transfer it to other members, killing the entire colony. Termidor kills termites through ingestion and through physical contact.

  • Termite Pre-Treatment Services - A-1 Pest Control is very knowledgeable in methods of pre-treating soil, slabs, and wood, and can also provide the new construction subterranean termite service that is required in North Carolina. This service is also available for commercial and home remodeling.
