How do you get rid of subterranean termites?

The best way to get rid of subterranean termites is to prevent these voracious, aggressive termites from entering your home in the first place with an annual termite inspection followed by a termite prevention program, warranty, or guarantee offered by professional pest control companies, such as Pestwise. For existing subterranean termite infestations, contacting a professional pest control company is essential to eliminate subterranean termites. DIY, do-it-yourself products, do not contain the effective materials that are available to trained technicians who are licensed in installing the Sentricon System with Always Active™. The Sentricon baiting system, developed in a collaboration between University of Florida-IFAS entomologist, Dr. Nan-Yao Su and Dow Chemicals, from 1984 until it was introduced to the pest control industry in 1995 revolutionized subterranean termite control with the first-ever subterranean termite baiting system. Our local termite experts are certified Sentricon Specialists™ authorized to install the system.

The signature bait stations, strategically placed in the ground around your home are activated with Sentricon’s Always Active™ technology. Recruit HD termite bait, placed in these stations, contains Noviflumuron, the active ingredient that prevents termites from molting from one stage to the next in the growth cycle. When disrupting the growth cycles of termites, the worker termites cannot grow and the food transporting worker termites die, leaving the colony without food. With no food supply, the queen dies and the colony collapses. Non-intrusive Sentricon bait stations, properly stocked and monitored, can deter subterranean termites from your property for years. Remember to renew your termite warranties and guarantee programs every year to keep your Clearwater or Palm Beach County home or business free of subterranean termites.

Subterranean termites are incredibly destructive and need to be addressed immediately. Contact Pestwise without delay!
