Why Terre Haute Homeowners Trust Action For Termite Defense

termite damage in a house

For Terre Haute homeowners, handling termite problems is a year-round ordeal. Our spring and summer weather allows for termite colonies to spread, breed, and reproduce, often within the walls of your home. Termites are capable of surviving inside heated homes when the temperatures outside drop. While termites living in colder weather become less active, they won’t die unless the temperatures fall below 25 degrees, which means termite colonies outdoors may still be a risk once spring arrives. With most Terre Haute homes being made with at least some wood, you can be sure that termites will target your home if you don’t protect it with an effective termite control plan.

Why Every Home Needs Termite Control

Without proper termite control, a termite infestation within the walls of your home could lead to thousands of dollars in property damage. Every year, U.S. property owners pay over 5 billion dollars because of wood-destroying termites. And just because you don’t see termites doesn’t mean you don’t have an infestation. These insects stay hidden while they work. Over time, as termites secretly eat away at wooden beams, supports, or structures, the strength and structural integrity of your home can weaken dramatically. With each year that you do not notice termites infesting your property, more damage takes place. For this reason, it is important for Terre Haute homeowners to protect their homes. Here at Action Pest Control, we believe there’s no better protection plan than one that implements the Sentricon® System with Always Active™.

How Action’s Termite Control Works

The individuals who created Sentricon® have proven time and time again that they are leading termite control efforts with the most technologically advanced termite products and treatments available. Here at Action Pest Control, we strive to provide the best services and products for homeowners throughout Kentucky and Indiana, which is why we use Sentricon® with Always Active™ to protect Terre Haute homes.

Sentricon® bait stations are strategically placed around the exterior of your home to ensure termites reach the bait before they reach your home. The Always Active™ ingredient in this bait has been scientifically proven to be the most attractive food to termites on the market. That’s right, even more attractive than wood! Once termites discover the bait stations around your home, the bait is brought back and spread to the rest of the colony. The slow-acting ingredients ensure that the termite queen also gets a taste of this bait, and once the queen is eliminated, it won’t take long for the rest of the colony to die off as well. This method of termite elimination uses the knowledge of natural termite behavior in order to effectively eliminate termite infestations.
