When it comes to home-wrecking termite species, Houston Texas has them all. High humidity and prolonged hot weather make Houston an ideal home from the most destructive of all termites: The Eastern Subterranean Termite–a species of termite that can total a home in as little as two years. But, fortunately, there is a solution. With advancements in modern termite control, your home or business can be fully protected.
The Greater Houston termites control specialists at Holder’s Pest Solutions have been protecting homes and businesses from wood-damaging termites for over 70 years, and they are excited about the new Sentricon®Termite Colony Elimination System. This new technology is by far the most effective system they have ever seen. Not only is it effective, it is 100% eco-friendly.
Rather than a chemical barrier, it relies on bait stations installed around the perimeter of a home or business, that lures termites in to eat of a specialized bait that is not only scrumptious to termites, but ultimately deadly. This slow-acting poisoned bait uses the termite colony’s own behavioral patterns against itself. Workers that venture out in search of food find this appetizing bait and consume it. They then take it back to their nest and feed other workers through a process called trophallaxis. It is then shared with the soldiers and the babies in the colony. When it seems safe, the queen will also partake of this new food. This is when the poison starts to reveal itself. Workers begin to die. Soldiers and babies die soon after. And, eventually the queen dies. If any termites are left alive after the death of the queen, they too will die because a colony cannot survive without its queen. This all happens without any danger to families, pets or the ecosystem around your home.
