The Downside of Do-It-Yourself Termite Control

In this day and age, Do-It-Yourself is all the rage! As a homeowner, we know the temptation is real to take on as many DIY projects as you can: things like fixing a leaky faucet, taking care of some yard landscaping, or painting your house, but when it comes to termite control, doing it yourself simply is not the best way to go. Termite control is definitely a job best left to the professionals. Otherwise you could risk thousands of dollars in damages that termites can cause to your property and that’s just not worth it.

Destructive pests like termites require swift action and a keen eye. The pests you can see might be eliminated, but a larger infestation might be continuing to grow out of sight. You and your home could pay the price if you fail to act accordingly or don’t notice some of the smaller signs of termite infestation. Many home insurance policies do not even cover damage caused by termites. They consider it to be a maintenance issue where the homeowner is liable for any termite damage repairs to your home or property. It would be a shame if what was supposed to be a cheap and easy DIY way to get rid of termites turned out to be an expensive and painstaking way to learn a lesson about termite control.

Pest control professionals, like Arrow Exterminators, are trained to identify the problem causing termites and come up with the best solution for the particular situation. We use specialized equipment and scientifically proven products to combat termites. If you’re looking for termite control products at your local hardware store, know that they simply are often not as effective as the products used by the trained and experienced pros. Only a termite baiting system like the Sentricon® Solution with Always Active™ has been proven time and time again to eliminate the colonies of subterranean termites. Bait stations are strategically placed about 10 feet apart around the perimeter of your home. The termite bait starts to work the moment we put it into the ground around your property. The continuously foraging termites will find the bait and share it with the rest of their colony. Once the termites have ingested the bait, it prevents them from molting, and when they can’t molt, they die. Soon the active ingredient is spread throughout the colony eliminating every worker and even the queen.

Arrow Exterminators is a Certified Sentricon® Specialist™ and our team of highly trained professionals will do whatever it takes to keep your property safe from the destructiveness of termites. Once your Sentricon System is in place, we will continue to provide the service necessary to maintain your bait stations and ensure that you’re guarded against termite attacks all year round. Take pride in knowing that Arrow Exterminators has your back! So, leave the termite control to us and then go tackle all of those other Do-It-Yourself home improvement projects.
