Termites are small, wood-eating creatures that can do severe damage to your property over time. Marathon Pest Control offers professional termite control treatments to the residents in Conroe, TX and the Greater Houston area. Our experienced team conducts a thorough inspection with a focus on areas that attract termites, such as moisture problems, poor wood-storage practices, or rotting wood. If we find a termite problem, we’ll put our high-quality eradication solutions to work. As certified installers of the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System, we can place bait stations near your home to draw out any existing termites. For all of our customers, we provide treatments with federally-approved products that are safe for your home, family, and pets.
At Marathon Pest Control, we are dedicated to keeping your home termite-free all year round. Once we’ve taken care of the existing problems, we’ll provide a free estimate for our ongoing termite prevention plans, which include Sentricon® bait stations, periodical checks and bait station servicing, and thorough inspections. Our recurring termite treatments, powered by the Sentricon® bait stations, include our no-hassle, termite-free guarantee. If termite damage occurs between services and inspections, we’ll handle the issue at no extra charge.
Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System
We only use the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System as our method of Subterranean Termite Control with Always Active Technology. The green Sentricon stations are installed in the soil approximately every 10 linear feet around the structure. Recruit HD termite bait is inserted into all Sentricon stations upon installation. Recruit HD termite bait is highly durable in the soil and resistant to degradation; highly desirable to termites, preferred over wood in laboratory and field tests; and highly dense, with more than double the amount of termite colony-killing bait in a single device than the previous bait. With every station containing the bait, all the time, it is providing you continuous protection and greater peace of mind. It is like having a termite technician on your property 24/7/365!
With Sentricon® the entire building must be treated. The cost to treat is by the total linear footage of the structure; however, because some buildings are surrounded on one or more sides with asphalt or concrete, “core drilling“ to install stations may be required. The need to “core drill” significantly increases the cost. All treatment costs include a termite bond that covers the costs to repair new subterranean termite damage.
Benefits of the Sentricon® System
There are many key benefits of using Sentricon®, including:
- It works! It is the only method of treatment for subterranean termites that guarantees termite colony elimination. All other methods guarantee control. Liquid treatments build a barrier around the structures to prevent termites from entering the building. If the barrier is broken due to movement of soil which can be caused by something as simple as rainfall through a gutter, there is nothing to stop the termites from getting inside. Sentricon® eliminates the termite colonies so there are no termites to get inside.
- It does not require a 5-year booster treatment. The Sentricon® System is constantly treating termites if they are present. Because the treatment is ongoing, there is no re-treatment or booster treatment to perform.
- It is environmentally safe. Sentricon® won the 2000 Green Award. One (1) gram of active ingredient installed in a containerized bait tube will eliminate an entire colony versus hundreds of gallons of liquid termiticide applied per building to keep the termites out.
