There is a time and a place when full structural fumigation becomes the best course of action for certain pest infestations. These infestations are not covered by any other service plan that Sentinel offers.
The first is Bed Bugs.
Over the past twenty years, bed bugs have become a major problem throughout the US. They can easily be transferred from place to place and can be very, very difficult to eliminate.
As a result, Sentinel believes that the most effective way to rid your structure of these highly invasive pests is full structural fumigation. There are several other methods available today but based on our professional opinion-fumigation is the closest to "one and done" that is available today.
The second is Drywood Termites. Drywood Termites can be controlled and sometimes eliminated by means of spot treatments. There are times, however, where the infestation becomes too great for these means. A major infestation of Drywood Termites will require full structural fumigation. Our experienced experts can determine if your property meets the criteria for this service or not.
One of the common signs of a drywood termite attack is the accumulation of tiny, straw-colored fecal pellets inside or beneath infested furniture. These pellets sift from small holes in the surface of infested wood or are pushed out through small round openings maintained by the termites for this purpose. The hard fecal pellets have six distinct, concave surfaces. Signs of termite infestation also include swarming of winged forms in fall and spring and evidence of tunneling in wood.
