Termites, a fact of life in Louisiana, cause millions of dollars in damage to structures each year, primarily residences. No structure, not even brick or concrete slab construction, is immune to their voracious appetite. Yet termite infestation is often difficult to detect.
The first visible sign of termites may be a "swarm" appearing in the spring. If so, then it may only be the tip of the iceberg. Worker termites are active 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, foraging for new food sources (wood) and gathering food to nourish the rest of the termite colony: queens, soldiers, reproductives and young.
The best defense against termites is both a good inspection and an ongoing treatment program (whether curative or preventive). The two main types of treatments for existing homes are traditional liquid barriers like Termidor and termite baiting systems such as the Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination System, both of which are offered by Permatox and customized to fit your property.
Chemical termite pre-treats are available for new construction establishments before the slab is poured.
Permatox offers the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System. For more information on Sentricon, please visit www.Sentricon.com.
Permatox Pest Control is an Authorized Operator for the Sentricon® System.
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.
