The Sentricon System
The Sentricon system is effective, environmentally friendly, and the most recognized name in termite bait stations. Following your termite inspection, your Eco Pest Control professional exterminator – who is certified in the Sentricon system – can install and maintain your system. Sentricon’s magic is in its Always Active™ technology, which works by using termite bait that is scientifically proven to be more appealing than wood. Once a few termites take the bait, they will lead other termites to it. This spreads the bait to other members of the colony until the entire termite colony is destroyed, stopping further damage from inside your home or building. Your Eco Pest Control termite exterminator checks the bait station during your annual inspection to ensure its ongoing effectiveness. In addition, our termite inspection and exterminator plans come with 12-month warranties that are renewable and transferable.

Common Types of Termites We Find in Virginia

Termites are social insects that feed on cellulose-based materials, such as wood and paper. They live in colonies organized into three castes: workers, soldiers, and reproductives. While termites play a crucial role in ecosystems by breaking down dead plant material, they can cause significant damage when they invade homes and other structures.

In Virginia, several termite species are commonly found, including:

  • Eastern subterranean termites: These termites are Virginia’s most common and destructive species. They nest underground and build mud tubes to access above-ground food sources, such as wooden structures.
  • Formosan subterranean termites: Formosan termites are an invasive species known for their aggressive feeding habits and large colony sizes. They can cause extensive damage to homes and other wooden structures in a short period.
  • Drywood termites: Unlike subterranean termites, drywood termites do not require contact with soil and can infest dry wood found in homes and buildings. They often establish colonies in attic spaces, wooden furniture, and structural timbers.

Don’t let termites threaten the safety and integrity of your property. Contact us to schedule a termite inspection and take the first step toward preventing termite invasion. Call (804) 575-7054 to book a service for quality Richmond termite control.

Understanding the Threat: Types of Damage Caused by Termite Infestation

Termite infestations pose a significant threat to the structural integrity of both residential and commercial structures, causing damage that can be costly to repair. In Virginia, where various termite species thrive due to the favorable climate and abundant wood resources, understanding the types of damage caused by termite infestations is crucial for property owners. 

Here are some common types of damage caused by termite infestations:

  • Wood damage: Common signs of wood damage caused by termites include hollowed-out wood, blistered or sagging floors, and buckling or bubbling paint. In Virginia, where homes often feature wooden structural components and siding, termite damage risks are particularly high.
  • Foundation damage: Subterranean termites, such as Eastern subterranean termites, are known for their ability to tunnel through soil and penetrate foundation walls, leading to extensive damage. 
  • Moisture damage: As termites tunnel through wood, they create pathways for moisture to penetrate, leading to issues such as wood rot, mold growth, and water damage. 
  • Aesthetic damage: Swarms of termites can leave behind discarded wings, fecal pellets, and mud tubes, detracting from the visual appeal of properties. 
  • Insulation damage: Termites may also target insulation materials found in walls, attics, and crawl spaces, compromising the energy efficiency and thermal performance of homes and businesses.

Proactive termite control measures are essential, given the potential for significant damage caused by termite infestations. Regular termite inspections, timely treatment of infestations, and preventive measures, such as moisture control and wood maintenance, can help protect your home from termite damage.
