We also consider the environmental impact to ensure our treatments don't have a negative effect on our community. We offer the Sentricon System® so you are provided with top-notch service that will get rid of termites for the long haul.

Long-Term, Effective Treatment for Your Home

Our termite treatment offers both Sentricon® and liquid barrier treatments. The Sentricon System® is a non-intrusive method that provides permanent total colony elimination. This method has been tested by the EPA and U.S. Department of Agriculture, while also being researched by 30 universities. Sentricon® has been proven to be effective in killing termites and quick to get results. The way it works is by installing bait stations around your property that are powerful enough to kill millions of termites. On the other hand, our liquid barrier treatments are designed to kill individual termite workers, not the entire colony. This method is proven to only manage and control the colony temporarily.

When investing in our termite control services, our exterminators will provide you with:

  • A detailed inspection of your property to locate possible entry points. This first step will also help our exterminator determine what is attracting the termites to your home.
  • Implementation of an exterior treatment that will create an “invisible” barrier to prevent termites from reaching your home.
  • Installment of monitors around the exterior of your home to keep track of activity.
  • A follow-up visit to inspect the property to ensure your infestation is gone for good.

Signs You Might Have Termite Damage

Although termite swarming season is early spring, these pests can be active all year long. Depending on where you live and current conditions, they may be attracted to or already nesting in your home. Are you unsure if you are dealing with termites in your home? A few indicators that suggest you are, are:

  • A large number of swarmers (winged termites) found in your home.
  • Mud tubes on the foundation, by doors, and windows.
  • Small holes in drywall or wood.
  • Wood that crumbles easily because of apparent damage.
  • Sagging floors, soft spots on walls, and cracked plaster.

Many times, termites may be difficult to find until it's too late. Have one of our trained exterminators inspect your home to locate hidden problems you may not be aware of.

Still Have Questions? Check Out These FAQs

How does the bait in Sentricon eliminate termite colonies and how long does it take to work?

The bait attracts termites and acts as an alternative source of nutrition for them. The scavenging termites will then take the bait back to their colonies and feed it to the rest of the colony. The formula in the bait stops their ability to molt, which in turn eliminates the entire colony. 

It will take a few weeks for them to find and distribute the bait from the stations. Then, elimination of the colony depends on a few varying factors and could take anywhere from 4 weeks to 3 months to fully eliminate the entire colony.

Can't termites just go between the stations to get into my home?

Termites are constantly finding and foraging for new sources of food, even if they have an abundance. This means that they will find the Sentricon bait stations and begin bringing that food to the colony, which will result in the full elimination of your infestation.

What if my neighbors have termites and install Sentricon, is my home protected?

If your neighbors have reported termites in the area, your home may be at risk. Since they spreads underground, it’s impossible for you to detect it before it’s too late. Professional, preventative treatments are the best way for your home to stay termite-free. 

Your neighbors Sentricon will not help eliminate the colonies around your home. The Sentircon system can only eliminate colonies where it is installed. It is entirely possible that there are many colonies foraging in your neighborhood that could infest your home. 

When the termites have been eliminated, do I need to keep the system?

Yes, the Sentricon system stays in the ground in order to protect your home against any future infestations.

How often are the stations checked at my property?

An exterminator from Miller Pest & Termite will be out once a year to inspect your Sentricon bait stations to ensure they are working properly.

What if the colony is under my home?

It's in termites biology to constantly be scavenging for food. Even if they have found a source of nutrition in your home they will continue to travel lengths up to the size of a football field in order to get food for their colony. So, even if they are under your home they will find the Sentricon bait station and administer it to the entire termite colony.

Does Sentricon attract termites to my home?

No, Sentricon will not attract them to your home. These stations act as an alternative source of food for termites, so if there are any in your area they will find the Sentricon bait station, bring it back to their colonies and their colonies will be eliminated.

Is it okay for my kids and pets to play near the stations and what happens if my pet eats one?

Yes, the Sentricon bait stations are family and pet-friendly.

The quantity of active ingredient in each bait station is so small that your pet would need to ingest approximately 200 of the bait station inserts — which is simply impossible — before becoming sick.

Is it possible that termites have infested my concrete walls?

If you’ve noticed any signs of an infestation, there is the possibility that your concrete wall may be infested. Although they don’t make their way through concrete the same way they do through the wood, termites only need a tiny hole to make their way through. 

Will termites go away on their own at the end of termite season?

Unfortunately, termites do not go away on their own when the season ends. Once they’ve swarmed, they will infest starting from one part of your house and continue to do so until an effective treatment is performed. It is advised that you call a professional company like Miller for a detailed inspection and the best possible treatment.
