As beautiful as South Carolina is, its humid climate makes it one of the most active U.S. states for termite swarms throughout the year. Not only do these wood-destroying pests affect the structure and stability of your home, they can cause costly damage that is generally not covered by homeowners insurance.
Every home has different termite extermination needs. To cover all your termite problems, American Termapest offers professional-grade termite control treatments guaranteed to protect your home from Subterranean termites that are known to damage homes in South Carolina.
Termites continuously search for new food sources, and your home or business may be an open buffet for their ravenous appetite! If you want to protect your property from costly termite damage, it’s important to be proactive.
Let American Termapest and the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System and its Always Active technology wipe out existing colonies and prevent future infestations from happening.
As Certified Sentricon® Specialists, our technicians are prepared to help customers throughout Greenwood, Greenville, and surrounding areas to combat termite infestations.
How Sentricon® Works
Buying or Selling a House?
American Termapest provides Official South Carolina Wood Infestation Reports (CL100), often referred to as a termite letter. Our experienced and highly qualified inspectors work with buyers, sellers, and realtors to provide a thorough inspection and detailed report of our findings. This inspection provides our findings on any visible wood-destroying insect activity, reporting of wood-destroying fungi below the first main floor level, and current wood moisture content in the substructure.
The sooner you detect a termite problem, the sooner you can stop it from spreading. Regular annual inspections from a professional pest control company are one of the best defenses against a termite infestation. We’ve served thousands of happy customers in the Upstate, SC, area since 1955, and we would be happy to inspect your property for termites and provide a free, no-obligation estimate today.
Frequently Asked Questions
Through our almost 70 years in business, we have found that performing an annual termite inspection is adequate in catching visible termite infestations before they are a huge, costly issue. Annual inspections also provide peace of mind.
There are many key differences between a liquid treatment and the Sentricon® system, but the most important is how they each kill termites. The Sentricon® system kills the entire termite colony, even those that have not fed at the stations, while liquid treatments only kill termites that cross the treatment barrier.
While there are a few different termite bait systems on the market, the Sentricon® Colony Elimination System is superior to all. Sentricon® is backed by decades of university research, only available for use by Certified Sentricon® Specialists, and is the only termite product awarded the EPA’s Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award for superior environmentally responsible chemistry.
Termites cause an estimated $5 BILLION worth of damage annually in the United States, and this damage is typically not covered by homeowners insurance. Seeing that the Upstate of South Carolina is in one of the highest pressured areas for termites, it is not a matter of IF you will get termites but WHEN. Being proactive about termite control may save you time, money, and aggravation.
Our pest control program controls a wide number of pests, but due to the behavior, biology, and location, it does not have any effect on termites. Termite control requires a completely different set of knowledge than general pest control, such as knowledge of building practices, termite-specific products, and termite-specific conducive conditions.
The pesticides that we use are formulated to combat pests and, when used according to the label, should not pose any threat to your pet.
We offer warranties through our termite protection programs, and our recurring pest control services are guaranteed.
Since most of the services we perform are either around the exterior or underneath your home, you do not need to be home unless there is a specific interior pest problem.
We do not offer weekend appointments so our team can spend time with their family and rest. We are open Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm.
