The Sentricon® Termite Baiting System is proven and efficient! Termites are known as “silent destroyers” due to their constant gnawing and ability to chew through wood, flooring and even wallpaper undetected. Termites can feed 24-hours a day, seven days a week and according to the NPMA, cause more than $5 billion in property damage each year – an expense typically not covered by homeowners insurance.
Certified Termite & Pest Control offers the following signs that termites may be present in a home:
- Mud tubes (used by termites to reach a food source) on the exterior of the home.
- Soft wood in the home that sounds hollow when tapped.
- Darkening or blistering of wood structures.
- Cracked or bubbling paint.
- Small piles of feces that resemble sawdust near a termite nest.
- Discarded wings near doors or on windowsills, indicating swarmers have entered the home or swarmers themselves, which are often mistaken for flying ants.
