Exterminator Kansas City Milberger Pest Control knows termites and knows how to get rid of them in your home or business. Milberger uses two different types of termite control systems, Termidor and Sentricon, so you have a choice for your termite pest control.
Termites are small white, tan, or black insects that can cause severe destruction to wooden buildings. These pests cause serious damage to wooden structures and posts and may also attack stored food, books, and household furniture.
How do I know if I have termites? Your first clue to a termite problem may be small flying insects – known as termite swarmers – flying near your windows and leaving behind their discarded wings. This phenomenon generally occurs in the spring time. However, termites are active all year round, and as termite swarmers look very similar to flying ants, correct identification is critical as part of a professional customized solution.
Termites are secretive pests and spotting them can prove to be very tricky. They can live undetected in hollow doors and wall voids for many years.
Apart from spotting termite swarmers in the spring, another obvious indicator of their presence is the damage they inflict on properties. To actually tell if you have termites in your home, it is often easier to look for the early damage signs they can typically cause.
How much damage do termites cause?
Termites eat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, meaning damage to wood in and around a structure can happen very quickly. In fact, the National Pest Management Association estimates that termites cause $5 billion in property damage each year. That’s why exterminator Kansas City Milberger Pest Control takes termite control very seriously. While most companies are only certified in one termite control system, we specialize in two, giving you a choice depending on what you want from your pest control.
Sentricon is one of the termite control systems exterminator Kansas City Milberger uses.
The benefits of using Sentricon include:
- Uses active ingredients only when termites are present
- Can detect termites before they enter structure
- No drilling to the structure required
- Eliminates entire termite colony
Termidor® termiticide/insecticide is a professional termite defense product effective on native subterranean termites, Formosan termites, and drywood termites. It utilizes an advanced nonrepellent, or “undetectable,” liquid technology that termites cannot see, smell, taste, or avoid. Instead, they contact, ingest, and share Termidor, completely unaware that doing so will inevitably kill them.
