Termite Prevention in Broken Arrow OK |  Arrow Exterminators, Inc

As anyone who lives in Oklahoma knows, termite damage is a constant worry for home and business owners. One of the most frequent questions we get from customers is, “what’s the best way to get rid of termites?” 

With the wide variety of termite treatments available, it’s understandable that most people aren’t sure where to start. However, with over 70 years of experience, our team has learned the most effective way to eliminate these pests. Whether you have a termite problem or just want to avoid the stress of an infestation, here’s what you need to know about the best termite treatments on the market—and which one is leagues above the rest.

Liquid Barrier Termite Treatments

Liquid termite treatments are utilized to create a soil barrier around a structure. When a liquid treatment is used, like Termidor, the soil is bound with termiticide which is undetectable to termites that may be traveling through it. 

In most cases, liquid treatments will provide the fastest results for termite eradication. In areas near bodies of water, liquid treatments are not recommended due to erosion and the potential for being washed away.

Termite Bait Systems

Termite bait systems are considered a long-term termite control method. Unlike traditional liquid termiticide treatments that last only a few years, bait systems can be interchanged with ease. By installing plastic tubes around the property and filling them with termiticide-treated bait, termites will feed on the bait system and return to the colony, killing them over time.

Sentricon System

The Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination System is perhaps the most extensively tested termite bait system on the market. It’s even been used to preserve historical sites across the United States, including the White House. This system uses a three-step process to ensure existing colonies are removed and future ones are prevented:

  • Detection: Monitoring and detection is crucial to determine the extent of your infestation. To start, termite exterminators place monitoring stations around the perimeter of your building, which include a hollow green plastic cylinder that allows termites to get inside. The exterminators place untreated wood inside of the tube to attract termites. 
  • Baiting: Once termites are located in one of the monitoring stations, the previously untreated wood will be replaced with bait that is laced with noviflumuron, a termite growth inhibitor. To help ensure treatment begins immediately, termites currently feeding on the untreated wood will be moved to the new laced bait.
  • Aftercare: After the termites are no longer found within the bait tubes, they will be replaced once again with untreated wood for routine monitoring. In the event, more termites begin to show up on this untreated wood, the baiting process will be restarted until the new termite population is eradicated. Monitoring usually will occur in 3-to-4 month intervals.
