Sentricon®: The Key to Effective Termite Prevention

Sentricon® kit

April 30, 2020

Spring is officially upon us! The flowers blooming. Temperatures rising. Termites swarming. Just as we’ve been social distancing the last few months, some of our more overly social friends, termites are out and active again. Luckily for you, Buckaroo Pest Protection is here and ready to service the local Plano and Dallas area with the best termite protection treatment out there: Sentricon®.

Over the course of the last few months we’ve been the bug in your ears informing you of the all the pests local to the Dallas area that may endanger your home and risk the health of your family. What we haven’t discussed yet is how we do it. Since the hottest pest of the season is termites, we figured we could start there.

How do we treat for termites?

Most companies tackle termite prevention and management with a liquid barrier solution that can easily be sprayed around your home and indoors. Though this method is effective, it’s not a long-term solution to get rid of an active termite infestation. Termites burrow deep within the earth or moist environments such as decaying wood or damp earth.

Using this liquid solution to treat and rid your home of termites may kill some on the surface but won’t effectively reach deep within the borrows to destroy the rest of the colony. We prefer to use a product called Sentricon® to not only take care of an active infestation, but prevent another from happening in the future. This product is effective and a great investment toward the longevity of your home.

How does Sentricon® Work?

Sentricon® utilizes bait around the perimeter of your home and indoors to lure these little homewreckers into the most deceptive of traps. This system uses the termite’s hunger against them by encouraging them to munch on bait they’re attracted to. Foragers will bring this newfound goodness back to their colony and spread the wealth. Sharing is caring right? We think so too.

What they don’t know, is that it’s lethal. As long as Sentricon® is in place, your home will be safe and free of termites! Sentricon® is the ultimate defense.

Termites are the sneakiest of pests because they know how to hide and protect the longevity of their colony. If the queen lives, the colony will be able to reproduce and carry on. We don’t want you or your family to live in fear that your home is being destroyed from the inside out.

A common misconception of pest infestations is if you can’t see them anymore, they must be gone. Since you don’t typically start to see termites until an infestation has gotten out of control, that logic doesn’t necessarily apply here. By the time you start to see termites massing at your windows and begging to be let in, it’s too late. They’re here and now, they plan to stay. With Buckaroo Pest Protection in your corner, we’ll make sure that doesn’t happen.

The Necessity of Pest Control: Covid-19 Friendly

April 16, 2020

Let’s set the stage. You’re stuck at home quarantined in lockdown during this global pandemic that’s still spreading throughout the Dallas area. Your kids are stuck at home, you’ve fought your way through numerous monopoly battles and cabin fever set in last week. That’s probably the worst it can get, right? Wrong. Now, on top of everything, you’re hearing scratching and clicking in the walls, seeing termite droppings around the baseboards and you think there’s a definitely something going on in the attic. What do you do now when the whole world is shutdown? Fear not, we’re still here! Buckaroo Pest Protection is here and ready to service all your pest control needs.

We understand how important it is right now to protect your family and your home during these times. After all, how can you be safe in an infested home? We don’t need to battle Covid-19 and termites. Here at Buckaroo Pest Protection, we know how important it is to protect the health and safety of your home and wanted to reach out and remind you what we can do for you during these confusing times.

Why Do We Matter?

The last thing we want you or your family to worry about right now is an active pest infection that can endanger your health and risk the quality of your home. With temperatures warming up and the good ol’ state of Texas flipping back and forth into April showers, it’s created the perfect environment for all the creepy crawlers to make their move into or around your homes. Seeing a few bugs here or there isn’t much to worry about, but if you start seeing them daily, you might have some new roommates.

Most bugs and rodents alike can carry diseases, bacteria or even create avenues for their friends to come in too. When you’re stuck at home trying to mill your way around the mysteries of common core, the last thing you need to be worried about is whether the winged bugs you’re seeing around the windows are ant or termites.

Outdoor Protection

Indoor pest control is important but so is outdoor. With limited resources available and your backyard being your ourdoor oasis, we want to make sure your family is safe both inside and outside your home. Most bugs prefer the rich and damp environment we’ve been experiencing lately, so we want to make sure you know what to look for.

Wasps

Our favorite neighborhood bully, wasps love the warm weather and tend to build their nests in the most inconvenient places. These mean, vicious creature tend to attack without much provocation and may lead to more than a few stings before you can fend off their assault. If you start to notice nests being built around your trashcans, canopies and around your lawn, feel free to give us a call. Buckaroo Pest Protection, fears no flying menace and will ensure the removal of nests to protect your family from harm’s way.

Flies

Another less volatile menace are flies. This warmer weather is where they thrive and tend to swarm near the front door of your home or nearby your trashcans. Have you ever gone to take out the trash and noticed that your trashcan was covered in maggots? Yeah, we don’t wish that on anyone. Most flies are harmless, but some species like the horse fly have a pretty painful bite. If you think wasps are bad, just wait until you run into a few of these. Not only do they bite you, but they’re determined to follow you if you catch their interest. If you’re worried about an overabundance of these nasty buggers, give a ring to come and inspect your home.

Remember, the best form of pest prevention lies in early intervention! If you think an infestation is upon you, fear not and pick up the phone! Some pests like mice or cockroaches only need one friend to form a colony. We’ll make sure to take of those creepy crawlies, before they damage your home, creep out your kids or become a long-term issue.
