How to Spot Termites
You can’t assume your home is termite-free just because you’ve never seen them. Only a thorough termite inspection in Central Illinois can turn up the telltale signs of an infestation. Some of the things we look for are:
- Mud tubes built for traveling above ground
- Damaged or hollow-sounding wood
- Pinholes or soft spots in drywall or wallpaper
- Termite wings leftover from swarming activities
- Other specific termite indicators
In addition, we offer Real Estate transfer, wood-destroying insect (WDI)
Inspections required by lending institutions for the sale of residential and commercial properties. NPMA forms, guidelines and procedures are used in all conventional and HUD/VA guaranteed property transactions.
Termite Treatment and Control
For termite treatment in Central Illinois, we use Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System to eliminate and prevent further termite infestation
The Sentricon System was developed with respect for the environment. It is registered by the EPA under the Reduced Risk Pesticide Initiative, and it’s the only termite control product ever to receive the Presidential Green Chemistry Award. In contrast to traditional liquid treatments—which use hundreds of gallons of chemical solution—the Sentricon System uses only grams of active ingredient when and where it’s needed.
Only select companies are qualified to offer this unique system, and we are proud to be one of them. We know how to eliminate termite colonies, and we are happy to share information about how we work toward colony elimination.
