Are There Tentless Termite Treatment Options?
There are many termite treatment options besides tenting your home, which is not the preferred termite treatment type.
Let’s face it: Few people want to deal with the inconveniences of tenting your home during termite treatment. This not only requires you to leave your home for a few days, it is also the most chemically toxic termite treatment available. Thankfully, there are many more treatment options available that work more effectively to control infestations in your home.
Liquid Termiticides vs. Baiting Systems
Liquid termiticides (Termidor) and baiting systems (Sentricon) are considered to be the most highly effective termite treatments, and are the preferred treatment options here at Heron. There are multiple benefits of both methods to take into account:
- Benefits of Termidor
- Proven to be effective against subterranean termites, Formosan termites, and drywood termites, all of which are common in Florida.
- Utilizes an undetectable liquid technology that termites can not sense or avoid, making it inevitable to spread throughout the colony.
- In addition to eliminating current colonies, it works to prevent future infestations as well.
- The technology begins to work immediately and infestations are almost always wiped out in three months or less.
- Benefits of Sentricon
- Once installed, the scientifically engineered bait begins working to eliminate active colonies immediately.
- More than 60 scientific studies prove its ability to achieve total colony extermination.
- The one-of-a-kind bait is ten times more attractive to termites than wood, and works to prevent termites from maturing. When they are unable to molt, they will die.
- Ongoing service and inspections by a professional will ensure the Sentricon bait system continues to work month after month and year after year.
Other Termite Treatment Methods
Soil treatment, wood treatment, orange oil, and even heat or cold treatments are all methods that have been used as alternative treatment options to varying degrees at success. At Heron Home & Outdoor, the preferred methods of control are almost always Termidor or Sentricon—these are two of the most reliable and convenient methods of termite treatment available with high degrees of success.
