How To Rid Your Dallas-Fort Worth, TX Home Of Termites
Whether you are worried about an active termite infestation or are looking to initiate a preventative program, All-Safe can help. We’ll begin with a phone call where we will qualify you for service and describe the process to you. If you have an active infestation, we’ll also determine what type of termite has infested your home, enabling us to determine the best course of treatment.
Your initial service visit includes both an inspection and treatment. We begin by performing a thorough examination of both the interior and exterior of your building, using both conventional means and infrared camera technology. After the inspection, we’ll apply localized spot treatments if we find termite activity, and we’ll also install the Sentricon® System with Always Active™.
After the first service, we will return every four months. During these visits we perform exterior maintenance to the bait stations, checking them and replenishing the bait as necessary.
For one-time treatments, a service technician will come out and install Sentricon® with Always Active™ bait stations strategically throughout your property. This service comes with a one-year warranty, and we will return three months after your initial service to inspect the bait stations. We will then return three months after that to replenish the bait in the stations.
The best time to stop termites is before they invade your property. Protect your new home with the Sentricon® System with Always Active™. Upon completion of your landscaping, we’ll install Sentricon® with Always Active™, which comes with a one-year warranty.
What Is Sentricon® With Always Active™?
The Sentricon® System with Always Active™ is a termite baiting system that eliminates current infestations and prevents future ones from taking over your home. At All-Safe Pest & Termite, we will install bait stations at regular intervals in the ground around the perimeter of your house. These bait stations have a safety lock and are only accessible by key, making them safer for kids and pets.
If termites are present, they will find the bait stations while they are foraging for food. Because the bait is scientifically proven to be more enticing to termites than cellulose products, termites not only alert other termites to its location but also bring it back to the other members of the colony. The active ingredient prevents termites from molting, eventually eliminating the entire colony.

Termite Frequently Asked Questions
What are the common signs of termites?
Termites can go undetected for long periods because the signs they leave behind are often subtle or hidden. However, if you know what to look for and where to look for it, you may be able to determine if termites are in your home. A good place to start is outside of your house. Look for sites where wood comes into direct contact with the soil, such as fence posts. Dig down into the dirt and look for grooves along the outside of the wood. If you see any, it’s a sign of termite activity.
Other signs of termites include small holes in wood, small piles of a sawdust-like material called frass near wooden structures, a hollow sound when you knock on wood, and mud tubes along the outside or inside of your foundation walls. Seeing a termite swarm or the discarded wings from a termite swarm is also a sure sign of a nearby termite colony.
When are termites most active?
Termites are active year-round, but they do enjoy warm temperatures and are most active when the temperature stays above 70 degrees. Unfortunately, there is never a time when termites are not active. Because they live underground, they will dig down deeper if it gets too cold. If they’re already in your house, they will remain active at all times due to the climate-controlled environment.
When do termites swarm in Dallas-Fort Worth?
While not always the case, termites most often swarm in the spring. Swarms often happen on warm days after it rains. They can sometimes also occur in late winter on an unusually warm day.
How much damage do termites cause?
Termite damage will vary from home to home based on several factors, but it’s important to realize that termites will begin destroying your house as soon as they get inside, and they won’t stop until you’ve taken action to get rid of them. Across the U.S., termites cause over $5 billion in structural damage every year. When you discover that a single termite colony can be home to over one million termites, it becomes easier to understand how much damage can occur in a relatively short amount of time.
