Conducive Termite Conditions in summerville
The moist, humid climate in Summerville can create conducive termite conditions. This is why it is important to protect your home from termites. Encapsulating your crawlspace is a great way to prevent wood destroying organisms like termites. It protects your home from other pests like rodents and roaches, too!
We often find that leaky pipes are also a common cause of moisture collection, perfect for a termite colony and fungi. Wood to ground contact is also a common conducive termite condition. This usually occurs when there is a stack of logs next to the home or other wood debris against the house. The removal of wood to ground contact is an easy way to reduce conducive termite conditions on your property.
what if i already have termites?
Many people wait until they see a termite to take action. This is an issue because by the time you see a termite, its colony most likely has already done serious damage by then.

It will also prevent future termite colonies from invading your home. With Advanced Termite and Pest Control, you’ll have peace of mind. All of our technicians are Sentricon Certified. One must be Sentricon Certified in order to get Sentricon. In other words, you can not purchase Sentricon from the hardware store like other pest control.
How Sentricon Works
Sentricon works by eliminating an entire termite colony using the bait in the stations that will be installed around your home. Worker termites share this bait with the rest of the colony and once ingested, it will prevent termites from being able to mature, which ultimately kills off the entire colony. The active ingredient works slowly enough that the termites do not get alarmed. This way, almost all of the termites will eat the bait, eliminating the colony.
Around the perimeter of your home, Sentricon baiting stations will be isntalled. Usually, about 10 to 20 feet apart. This way, the stations distribute the bait to termites, killing workers, soldiers and the queen, preventing them from ever reaching your home.
How often should my bait stations be checked?
Your Sentricon bait stations should be checked at least once per year. However, at Advanced Termite and Pest Control, we do bi-annual Sentricon Checks. We do this as an extra precaution to ensure our customers’ home is protected thoroughly. Included in your installation or renewal are your two Sentricon checks. You will not need to be home for the technician to check your stations unless you prefer this! As long as the technician has access to your front and back yard, you will not need to be home. Additionally, when you renew your termite bond in Summerville, SC, we will come back for a third inspection.
