buying first home

Buying a new home comes with many challenges. One of the most significant challenges is keeping ahead of entropy. Everything eventually breaks down. That's just how it is. It is important to be prepared for the unexpected long before it happens. Your home may have a beautiful deck on the back, but that deck isn't going to stay beautiful forever. Over time, the sun is going to dry the wood out, the wind is going to strip the paint off, and the change of seasons will make gaps expand and contract. That means you're going to have to fix or replace that deck at some point. So, it is smart to start putting aside a little money right now. That way, when you need a new deck, you'll already have the money. It is also smart to apply something to the wood of your deck, to protect it from the sun and the elements, so that you can go longer without having to shell out money to repair or replace your property. Termite control works a little differently.

When you invest in termite protection for your home, you'll never have to take money out of your savings to pay for termite damage, and you'll never have to find out that termites have rendered your home unrepairable. Proactive termite control isn't like putting stain or paint on your deck. It doesn't slow the termite damage process. It prevents it.

The Sentricon® System with Always Active™ does exactly what its name implies: it never stops protecting your home from termites. When termite workers tunnel up to your foundation and start building mud tubes up the side of your foundation to get at the wood of your home, some of those termites are going to find the bait stored in the Sentricon® with Always Active™ bait stations that have been discreetly installed in the soil of your foundation perimeter. When they do, your pest control technician is going to know it.

One of the biggest reasons termites are able to destroy our homes is because they do it in a way that goes undetected. If mud tubes are built, they are usually built in locations that are dark and hidden from view. When termites eat their way into the wood of a home, they feed quietly, without drawing attention. Sentricon® with Always Active™ makes it a snap to detect the presence of termites before any real damage can be done.

Not only does Sentricon® with Always Active™ alert homeowners and pest control technicians to the presence of termites, it immediately begins the process of stopping those termites. Worker termites share the bait with other workers as it is slowly passed back to the queen. If the queen dies, the colony dies with her. To ensure this process, a pest control technician will apply a more potent bait to any bait stations where activity is being seen.

This process works. Sentricon® with Always Active™ has over 20 years of real-world success protecting more than 4 million homes. It is also the termite control product trusted to protect our Nation's Capitol Building, the White House, and museums.

Do you have to get termite control for your new home? No. You don't have to put stain on your back deck either. But you know what that will do. Termite protection is one of the smartest things you can do to ensure the value of your home for years to come. We encourage you to learn more about Sentricon® with Always Active™. There is no better way to stop termites in their tracks. And, best of all, it is 100% safe for the environment. It targets termites and only termites.
