Termite Treatment for St. Louis, St. Charles and Jefferson Counties
Once upon a time, the only way to eliminate termites was to drill hundreds of holes in the front porch, garage, and basement to treat the soil underneath. Plus, the liquid used to treat them didn’t last forever. There had to be a better way! Then entered DowAgroSciences and Sentricon™ Termite Colony Elimination System, a baiting system that works outside to eliminate termites where they live and prevent them from ever entering your home or business. Sentricon™ is a colony elimination system with years of university testing and research behind it. Here are more reasons why it is the first choice for eliminating termites:
- Little or no drilling
- Little or no chemicals
- Little or no preparation by the home or business owner
- Monitoring using the latest technology
- The entire termite colony is eliminated
- Early detection of any new colonies
- Above-ground stations can eliminate the colony faster
Blue Chip integrates Sentricon™ Termite Colony Elimination System with traditional treatment principles and the newest technology to provide the most complete control of termites available. We also provide our customers with a comprehensive review of services after each visit. We customize a complete control program to your home or business to fit your termite needs. Blue Chip is proud to be an Authorized Operator of the Sentricon™ Termite Colony Elimination System.
Termite Services & Programs
There are two main treatments for termites: baits and liquid barriers.
Blue Chip will strategically install termite stations around your home or business approximately every 8 to 10 feet. We will then monitor the stations for termite activity and bait as necessary to eliminate the colony. Once a colony is eliminated, monitoring will resume to protect against new termite activity. For long-term control, baiting is the most effective control method.
As termites tunnel through treatment zones in search of food, they are exposed to the liquid termiticide. The termiticide is not only ingested, but also adheres to the termite’s body. Control goes into effect immediately as affected termites spread the material through contact with other termites. This gives immediate control of the termites and forces them out of your home or business.
Using both methods, we can achieve better results than with either approach used alone. The chemical treatment kicks termites out of your home or business, forcing them back outside. Once they’re outside, termites will look for another food source. They will find our bait stations, and then they are history.
