Termite Control

Residential Customers
Whether you’re building a new home, have a current termite problem, or want to prevent a termite attack, our dedicated team of professionals has the solution.  We’ll provide you with an evaluation of your property, and show you how our termite treatment options work to protect your investment.

Commercial Customers
Buildings with steel framing and masonry walls are not immune to termite attack because of the wooden door, window frames, cabinets, and shelving within the construction.  Structural damage is not the only issue.  Swarming termites are especially problematic in food processing and medical facilities.  Discarded wings and other body parts can contaminate food, disrupt health care, and hinder sanitation efforts.  A timely termite inspection could save you thousands of dollars.

Termite Baiting:
Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System

The Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System offers constant termite protection. It’s environmentally responsible, less disruptive than other treatments, and provides proven termite colony elimination. So you can stop termites’ destruction, and prevent it in the future.

The Sentricon System is more than just termite bait. It is a complete system designed to protect homes from termites by eliminating the termite colony.

The Property Protection Process provides continuous defense for long-term protection of homes through ongoing service. This three-step process begins once the Sentricon System is installed.

  •          Monitor – Gateway Pest Control will routinely examine the stations for signs of termite activity.

  •          Bait - When termites are discovered, Recruit™ termite bait is placed in the stations. Termites then feed on it and spread it to their nestmates.

  •          Eliminate - The active ingredient in Recruit termite bait affects termites by stopping the molting process they need to grow. As the worker termites die, the colony declines to the point it can no longer sustain itself, ultimately leading to its elimination.

Once the attacking colony is eliminated, the process starts over by monitoring for future invasions. The Sentricon System provides peace of mind. With the attacking colony eliminated and continuous monitoring for a new invasion by Gateway Pest Control, property owners, home builders, realtors and property managers can all rest assured that a home is protected.

Liquid Treatments:
Termidor® Termite Defense
and Phantom® Termite Control

Once the only way to service termites, newer liquid technology makes treatments more effective, in shorter time, with less toxicity. Several products are available. Our treatment of choice is Termidor and/or Phantom termiticide.

Termidor® Termite Defense
Termidor® Termite Defense is applied at very low rates. Typically, the active ingredient (fipronil) is just 0.06% of the solution, a concentration much lower than that of older liquids and less than most insecticides. For an average home treatment, only about 8 ounces of the active ingredient is actually used. Keep in mind, too, that since 1995, fipronil has been used around the world for flea and tick control on household pets and on agricultural crops to protect food supplies. And Termidor has virtually no odor.

Termidor is made from a revolutionary nonrepellent or undetectable chemical technology treatment. That means termites cannot see, smell, taste or avoid Termidor. Instead they contact, ingest, and share it with their nestmates. This is in sharp contrast to older liquid termite controls, which rely on repellent barriers in which termites can finds breaks, or avoid completely.

Phantom® Termite Control
Phantom® Termite Control is one of the best termite controls, and it's your solution. Phantom is a remarkable termite control product, employing the world's most advanced termite pest control technology.

In some of the most extensive testing a pest control product has ever been subjected to, Phantom has consistently proven to provide superior termite control under almost any condition. And, Phantom is proving to be highly impressive at keeping termites from coming back. Long-term field trials by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service showed no signs of reinfestation at over 98% of study sites seven years after treatment by Phantom

Termite Monitoring:
Halo™ Electronic Termite Detection

Halo™ Electronic Termite Detection
You can’t see inside your walls and floor to discover termite damage. You can’t hear a termite colony growing under your feet. But with a little electronic sleuthing and the expertise of Gateway Pest Control pest management professional, you can know if termites are foraging on your property. Halo™ Electronic Termite Detection makes it possible.

Halo™ Detection confirms the presence of termites before your pest management professional moves to control them. Termite damage can be extremely costly, so it’s a good idea to learn if they’re feeding just outside your walls.

Halo Detection gives you visible proof that termites are active on your property before you invest in a treatment. This proactive approach gives you time to think about your treatment options. If no termites are found, you’ve still gained something valuable – peace of mind. Continue the monitoring to stay up to date on termite status.

Accurate, reliable and proven.
With its unique electronic technology, Halo Detection has shown in field trials to accurately detect termites. While it does not attract termites, you can count on Halo Detection to signal when termites are present in a monitoring station.

Halo Detection is manufactured by Dow AgroSciences, a leader in termite solutions, and provided by pest management professionals skilled in termite monitoring and control.

Sensitive to the environment.
Why inject chemicals into the ground when you don’t yet know if you have termites? Halo Detection is a pesticide-free way to determine if there is termite activity on your property. Halo Detection contains no pesticide and offers no protection from termites.

Real Estate Inspections

Real estate inspections for wood destroying insects provide reasonable assurance that the property being bought or sold is not currently infested or damaged by termites or other insects, such as carpenter ants, carpenter bees, or powder post beetles. We will inspect and describe any evidence in our report to you.

Each year thousands of homes are attacked by termites or other wood destroying insects. Homebuyers need to know if these insects are present before investing their money. It is wise to have the property inspected by a licensed pest control company who can detect the presence of wood destroying insects.

If you're a commercial property owner or manager, consider a termite inspection at your facility. An inspection by one of our termite specialists is the first and most important step in protecting your property. Experienced inspectors are more likely to find termites. Early detection and control of termites is a job for the professional.

If you are buying or selling property, call Gateway Pest Control today and schedule a wood-destroying insect inspection.
