In Kansas, termites are a destructive force capable of causing significant damage to structures. When dealing with termites, it’s important to treat current infestations quickly using effective pest control that can prevent future infestations. Detecting termites early is an essential key to protecting your home and property.
Protect Your Property from Termites
If you suspect that termites have infested structures on your property, time is of the essence. At the first hint of termites, examine your home and property for any signs of a termite infestation. Termites can leave mud tubes that run up from the ground where they’ve entered the structure. They may also leave pin holes in walls where they ate the paper on the surface of the sheetrock. Look for them around the base of a tree where they can live just below the soil line. Also look for additional colonies in wood piles and underneath out-buildings on the property. If you find any of these signs of termite activity, immediately contact Patton Termite & Pest Control for help.
Patton Gets Rid of Termites
Patton Termite & Pest Control treats for termites using the Sentricon Colony Elimination System®. Sentricon® is a termite baiting system that uses termites’ biology against them. Foraging termites find and feed on the bait and take it back to the colony. The bait makes it so the termites can’t molt and when the workers can’t molt, they die off. Sentricon® kills the colony and it kills the termite queen. This system is also eco-friendly because it doesn’t require hundreds of gallons of chemicals to be pumped into the ground. The bait harms only termites and doesn’t require structural drilling or trenching. Sentricon® provides powerful termite protection, activity monitoring, and is minimally invasive.
