At Southeast Florida Pest Control, We Know Our Termites
IS IT A TERMITE OR AN ANT?
You will rarely see termites. But you might see hundreds or thousands of them flying during a reproductive swarm. Here’s how to distinguish them from their non-destructive look-alike: swarming ants
A. Antennae: Ants’ are elbowed. Termites’ are straight
B. Waists: Ants’ are narrow and pinched. Termites’ are thicker and less defined
C. Wings: Ants’ front pair are longer than the back and don’t break off easily. Termites’ are equal in length and break off easily.
Seeing flying termites, or swarmers, is just one indication that your home may be under attack by termites. But they aren’t the only sign. Just because you don’t see swarmers doesn’t mean there isn’t a hidden issue. Your Certified Sentricon Specialist™ can conduct an inspection to determine if there is a termite infestation threatening your largest investment — your home.
Though all termites are active year-round, the most activity noticed is in the spring as that is when the swarmers expand out to form new colonies. They are the only termites with wings, but once they have committed to a new home, their wings will be shed. If you have seen or suspect termites in or near your home or business, contact Southeast Florida Pest Control as soon as possible to spare your home or business further damage.

Termites can enter your home through cracks in concrete and openings as small as 1/16 inch. Each attack can leave you paying hundreds to thousands of dollars to repair the destruction they leave behind. Termite damage is rarely covered by homeowners insurance because policies provide coverage for sudden and accidental property damage. Homeowners insurance is not intended to cover termite damage since it is considered preventable through proper home maintenance – meaning if you can prevent it, you should have. And with the Sentricon® System, you can!
How the Sentricon® System Works
The Sentricon® System is like no other termite control. It uses termites’ very nature — their constant foraging in search of food — against them. Worker termites find the bait in the Sentricon stations while foraging, and share it with the queen and other colony members. Sentricon stops the process of molting which ultimately affects the queen and reproduction and kills the workers. The colony then crumbles and is eliminated.
Inspect: our Certified Sentricon Specialist inspects for signs of termites
Install: stations are placed around the property, and the bait immediately starts working
Service: our Certified Sentricon Specialist makes sure the stations are always working
With the Sentricon System, you can say "goodbye" to termites and say "no" to harsh chemical treatments.
