Heritage Pest Control Offers Three Choices for Termite Control and Termite Colony Eradication
When it comes to termite treatment and termite control, Heritage Pest Control is a top New Jersey termite control specialist to call. We recommend three different termite control systems: Termidor, Exterra, and Halo. Don't let termites destroy your home; take action now to get your termite problem under control before damage repairs becomes costly.
This is an advanced Termite Baiting System that utilizes the termites' own biology to work against themselves and to kill the entire colony. The unique baiting system allows for careful monitoring of termite activity. If activity is found, Labyrinth Termite Bait, that is delectable yet deadly to termites, is introduced into the bait station. The bait station is not disturbed and termites continue to feed, but this time on the Labyrinth Termite Bait inside the station. The chemical in the bait acts slowly and inhibits termite molting which causes death; eliminating the colony over time.
The first step in installing the Exterra Termite Interception and Baiting System is to install Exterra's 4" round 10" tall bait stations in the soil around your home's or building's structure. Each bait station contains six interceptors (wood strips inserted in grooves inside the bait station), which line the interior of the station to attract termites. We then monitor the stations for termite activity. When activity is found we bait the stations with the Labyrinth Termite Bait.
The termite workers will feed on the bait, digest it, and feed the rest of the termite colony in the ground by regurgitating the bait. The termites will continue to feed on the bait until colony elimination is achieved. The bait actually prevents termites from molting, which they must do to grow, and so effectively over time kills individual termites one at a time. Once control has been achieved, yearly maintenance is provided to make sure any new termite activity is addressed before termites enter your home or building.
We have used the Exterra Termite Interception and Baiting System for over 10 years with impressive results. This system is great as a low impact, non-invasive approach to termite control. For best protection we recommend that after the initial termite treatment warranty period, that you maintain a yearly termite protection plan with annual inspections to insure your home or building remain termite free.
The Termidor product is bar-none the best liquid termiticide on the market. Termidor is the only product we use because of its unprecedented success rate in complete colony kill. Not only can it be used to bring a termite problem under control but is routinely used to exterminate carpenter ants and household ants as an exterior application. Termidor has become the #1 termite defense product in the United States.
Termidor is a non-repellent material, which means once a barrier is established in the ground the termites don't detect it. They travel through the chemical material in the soil getting the substance on their bodies and transferring the termiticide material back into the colony. This "transfer effect" is what makes Termidor so effective; one termite worker can get the particles on his body and transfer those particles to 100 other termites in the colony as they groom each other. This will ultimately result in total colony elimination.
In testing, Termidor has consistently been proven to be the fastest and most effective termite control product for eliminating termites found in structures. Not only does it kill any termites that are present, but it has residual effects and keeps killing termites that may appear and cross through the chemical barrier. In testing done by the Department of Agriculture-Forest Service, Termidor treated plots killed termites for more than 14 years after the initial treatment. Pest professionals have protected over 3.75 million US homes with Termidor since it was introduced in 2000.
For best protection we recommend that after the initial termite treatment warranty period, that you maintain a yearly termite protection plan with annual inspections to insure your home or building remain termite free.
You can't see inside the walls of your house to really know if you have or don't have a termite problem. You could have a hungry termite colony growing right under your feet! So how can you be sure that your home is safe from termites? Easy, get the peace of mind you need with the Halo Electronic Termite Detection System. You'll know for sure that you are termite-free and can stay termite-free with this innovative termite detection system.
The Halo Electronic Termite Detection System is a proactive treatment. It uses the power of technology without chemicals to monitor your property for the presence of termites. With its unique electronic technology, Halo Detection accurately detects termites. Although the system does not attract termites like a bait station, it does signal when termites are present in a Halo monitoring station.
Here's how the Halo system works:
- Each Halo monitoring station is equipped with state-of-the-art electronics and
contains a wood based sensor that termites like to eat.
- Termites, if they are present will eat the layered material inside the
monitoring station. When termites have
disturbed this special layered material, the Halo hand-held indicator device
will light up and sound an alarm when the monitoring station is check
electronically by a pest professional carrying the hand-held unit.
- The Halo Electronic Termite Detection system allows for easy monitoring for the presence of termites giving you the peace of mind that your home is termite-free.
For best protection we recommend that you maintain a yearly termite protection plan with annual inspections to insure your home or building remain termite free.
