Not having effective termite control services can have serious and costly consequences. Termites can cause extensive damage to a property's structure, including walls, floors, and ceilings, leading to costly repairs and even safety hazards. When left untreated, termite colonies can grow rapidly and cause irreversible damage, making it essential to address the issue promptly with the help of professional termite control services.

For owners with structures made of or containing wood, the threat posed by termites is ever-present. These wood-destroying pests can cause a staggering amount of damage. Most termites form swarms in February; during this time, winged reproductive termites may be visible in or outside of structures. Once the swarms have discovered a suitable area, they will land, shed their wings, and mate, starting a new colony.

While internal signs of termite infestation might be visible, the external signs aren't always visible. These pests can go entirely unnoticed for years, feeding underneath the floorboards and behind the walls. That's why our staff assists in providing the means to identify signs of termite activity and infestations.

Certified Sentricon Specialists In Ohio

The Sentricon® Colony Elimination System with Always Active™ technology is the most reliable and effective means of permanently eliminating subterranean termite colonies commercially available today. Ohio’s Pest Control's termite experts are certified Sentricon Specialists™, which means we’re licensed and authorized to install the Sentricon system around homes and businesses throughout the midwest.

How Does Sentricon

System Work?

The Sentricon System with Always Active™ technology is a baiting system scientifically designed to eliminate entire subterranean termite colonies permanently. It works by taking advantage of termites’ normal foraging behavior.

Stations are placed in the ground around the structure and begin protecting your home or business right away, thanks to Sentricon’s Always Active™ technology. Recruit HD termite bait is placed in all stations upon installation, making it immediately available for termites.

Termites quickly locate the stations and begin feeding. The active ingredient in the bait, noviflumuron, prevents termites from molting. When termites can’t molt, they can’t grow and they die. Without workers to bring it food, the queen also dies, ending the colony.
