It’s easy to understand how to wipe out some pest infestations. Everyone knows that controlling mice or spiders is mostly just about making sure they can’t get into your home. Unfortunately, however, some pests aren’t quite as easy to figure out. How do you stop something like termites, for instance? They live deep underground and chew through wood. Your house is made of wood! The good news is there are now termite prevention methods that are super effective at keeping termites away from your home. It’s possible to actually place small termite traps in the ground that form a barrier around your home, stopping them in their tracks. The best termite trap and barrier system the professionals use is the Sentricon® System. What’s the saying? “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”? It makes way more sense to prevent termites than it does to treat your home only after you have a damaging infestation. Here’s why finding a professional with the skills and tools to use Sentricon should be your first priority in case of a termite infestation.
