The Sentricon System with Always Active technology begins the termite colony elimination process without delay and offers continuous property protection from termites.

The Property Protection Process provides continuous defense for long-term protection of homes by E-town Exterminating. This three-step process begins once the Sentricon System is installed.

  • Monitor. An Authorized Operator routinely examines the stations for signs of termite activity.
  • Bait. When termites are discovered, termite bait is placed in the stations. Termites then feed on it and spread it to their nestmates.
  • Eliminate. The active ingredient in the termite bait affects termites by stopping the molting process they need to grow. As the worker termites die off, the colony declines to the point it can no longer sustain itself, ultimately leading to its elimination.
  • Once the attacking colony is eliminated, the process starts over by monitoring for future invasions.

    E-town Exterminating provides peace of mind. With the attacking colony eliminated and continuously monitoring for a new invasion; property owners, home builders, realtors and property managers can all rest assured that a home is protected.



    TERMITE FAQ

    GENERAL TERMITE INFO

    Termites tunnel from their home in the soil in a constant search for wood to eat. But they can't tell the difference between a dead tree and your house. If they come across your home's foundation while foraging, they'll follow any cracks or crevices into your home. They may enter through wood in contact with the soil or by building pencil-sized mud tunnels from ground levels, to where the house's wood frame begins.

    Termites can also enter your home through expansion joints or utility and plumbing openings in the foundation. And they are small – all they need is an opening 1/32-inch wide to squeeze into your home.

    Chances are, you won't actually see termites or a termite swarm, which lasts less than an hour. More likely, you'll see evidence of swarming; sudden appearance of winged termites; piles of small, lacey wings; or mud tunnels termites build.

    HOW MUCH DAMAGE CAN THEY DO?

    Under ideal conditions, a typical termite colony (with 250,000 workers) can eat about 20 feet of a 2 x 4 board per year. If you find evidence of an infestation, there's no need to panic. It's unlikely the damage will get much worse from the time you first discover termites to the time your home is treated. Still, stopping the destruction sooner rather than later is important in avoiding costly damage and repairs.

    ARE THESE TERMITES OR FLYING ANTS?
    Termite swarmers look a lot like flying ants. In fact, homeowners often mistake flying ants for termite swarmers and become alarmed. But look closely and you'll see several differences. Termites - Straight antennae, Two pairs of wings of the same size and shape, Broad waist, Short legs. Flying Ants - Elbowed antennae, Two pairs of wings, with rear wings smaller than front wings, Narrow or pinched waist, Long legs.
    DO ALL TERMITES LOOK THE SAME?

    There are a variety of termites in the United States but they all have one thing in common; when left alone, they'll eat you out of house and home. The most common variety, subterranean termites, consist of a queen, king, reproductives, workers and soldiers.
