There are no laws in Virginia governing who can conduct a Wood Destroying Insect (WDI) report? That means the person who visits your home to check for termites may or may not be trained. How can you make sure your home is protected from these dangerous insects?
Hire a VPMA Certified Inspector
ProTech Pest Control termite inspectors are certified by the Virginia Pest Management Association (VPMA) under the WDI Inspector Certification Program:
Our certified inspectors go through VPMA classroom training and must demonstrate their knowledge and ability to conduct accurate termite reports
As an employer of VPMA Certified Inspectors, ProTech Pest Control must hold a pesticide business license and maintain liability insurance to protect our customers and employees
Our inspectors must also have a minimum certification from the Virginia Department of Agriculture qualify their knowledge in general pests
Sentricon: Termite Treatment & Elimination System
ProTech Pest Control offers the Sentricon System to effectively bait and eliminate termites, providing long lasting treatment to your home and property.
How Sentricon Termite Control Works
The Sentricon Advantage
Offers the best approach for protecting structures from subterranean termites because it eliminates the colony, while being non-disruptive to property owners
Provides proven, long-term protection against termite damage
Takes full advantage of natural termite behavior. Worker termites constantly forage far and wide, looking for wood to feed the colony
A typical homeowner's insurance policy does not cover destruction caused by termites, even though they cause over 5 billion dollars in damage to homes throughout the United States each year. You can't assume your home is termite-free just because you've never seen them - they only swarm once or twice a year, and you might miss it!
