Termite Treatment Options That Don’t Just Control, But Eliminate!

Based on our termite inspection, we’ll prescribe a treatment suitable for your home or structure’s specific construction type and your needs.

How Does Sentricon® Work?
Termite workers leave the underground colony, then travel through mud tubes to a building. Once inside, they consume wood and take it back to the nest to feed the rest of the colony. Termite baiting stations placed in soil around homes and other structures disrupt this process. Rather than making their way indoors, termites are attracted to the bait, consume it, and then take it back to the rest of the colony. This results in the complete elimination of the colony, including the workers, soldiers, and reproductives (kings & queens). Once termites have been eradicated, the Sentricon System continues to monitor for termite activity. With the Sentricon System and Quik-Kill Pest Eliminators, you get constant termite defense and attention from certified Sentricon specialists who are committed to protecting homes and businesses from destructive termites.

Effective on the type of termites that infest homes and businesses in Illinois and Iowa, Termidor is a professional termite defense product that catches these wood-destroying insects unaware. It utilizes an advanced, non-repellent, or “undetectable” liquid technology that termites cannot see, smell, taste, or avoid. Termites come into contact with Termidor, ingest it and share it with the rest of their colony, unknowingly killing the entire population. Regular follow-up inspections and monitoring are the keys to maintaining Termidor protection and controlling termites.
- Termidor is 100% effective at controlling 100% of termites in three months or less.
- Termidor kills and controls termites several ways.
- The unique “Transfer Effect” allows Termidor to achieve control of termites at the very low rate of 0.06% active ingredient.

How Does It Work?
Termidor is applied along the foundation walls or exterior perimeters of homes and businesses. Because it binds tightly to the soil, it creates what we like to call the “Termite Zone”. It is undetectable to termites, and they cannot avoid it. Termidor kills through the ingestion of treated material, and also on contact. When a termite comes in contact with Termidor, they become carriers and transfer it to other termites they meet. Secondary carriers continue the transfer process so that it spreads throughout the colony, resulting in the complete elimination of the nest.
