Did You Know:

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

  • Termite Inspection

    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!

    What Our Termite Inspectors Do

    ProTech Pest Control has a team of experienced, Certified Inspectors who will thoroughly inspect your home or business, looking for the telltale signs of termite infestation. ProTech Pest Control has a comprehensive termite inspection and treatment program that can help you understand the threat of termites and take the necessary steps to protect your home. In addition, ProTech Pest Control offers real estate transfer termite inspections.

    Some of the things we look for are:

    • Mud tubes built for traveling above ground
    • Damaged or hollow-sounding wood
    • Pinholes in drywall or wallpaper
    • Piles of small wings
    • Other specific termite indicators
  • Canine Termite Detection Team

    ProTech Pest Control has the only K-9 Termite Detection Team in Northern Virigina

    ProTech Pest Control is home to the Metro Area's Only Certified Termite Detection Canine Team. Inspector Marlowe can detect termite activity that is hidden from even the best human inspectors.

    Inspector Marlowe is trained to smell pheromones given off by termites, and can detect them behind walls and under floors. His nose is so attuned to termites that we are able to offer a written 100% Termite Free Guarantee if he doesn't find anything.

    When Inspectors Marlowe and Roxy, our Bed Bug Detection K-9s, are not working, they receive the best pampering care at:
