Termites are Built for Destruction:

  • Termites cause over $5 billion in damage to U.S. homes each year.
  • One small termite colony of approximately 60,000 termites can eat a linear foot of a common 2" x 4" in just five months.
  • In some regions of the United States, Formosan subterranean termite colonies typically number in the millions, and forage over 100-meter distances.
  • Subterranean termites cause over 90 percent of termite damage in the U.S.


Here’s What Termites Do:

  • Swarming can begin in January in the South, May or June in the North.
  • Colonies can contain from several thousand to several million foragers.
  • Some termites can chew through lead, asphalt, plaster or mortar to find wood.
  • Almost 4 million U.S. homes are infested by termites each year. Termites can be found in every state except for Alaska.


Some Fascinating Facts:

  • Termites on Earth outweigh humans on Earth.
  • Some sources indicate that termites have been here for about 250 million years, according to some estimates.
  • Termite queens live for 15 to 25 years, and can lay an egg every 15 seconds.

  • Provides an environmentally sensible solution with a minimal amount of termite bait.
  • Has low impact on human health, low toxicity to birds, fish and plants, and low potential for groundwater contamination when used according to label instructions.
  • Requires no drilling in floors nor trenching around the home.
  • Is a high-quality product from Dow AgroSciences, a recognized leader in termite solutions.


How does the Hex-Pro System work?



1. It starts with a professional inspection of the home for signs of termites.
2. Hex-Pro termite stations are placed in the soil in prime termite-foraging areas around the house.
(In areas of known termite activity, auxiliary Hex-Pro termite stations may also be installed and
baited immediately.)
3. Hex-Pro termite stations are checked regularly for signs of termite activity.
4. When termites are found in the Hex-Pro termite stations, they are transferred to a bait cartridge placed in the stations. The bait cartridge contains Shatter™ termite bait. In cases where baited auxiliary Hex-Pro™ termite stations are installed immediately, transferring termites is unnecessary.
5. Termites feed on Shatter termite bait, tunnel back to their colony, and send their nestmates back to feed on the bait. Generally, after several weeks, the termite colony declines and eventually is destroyed.
6. After the termites have been controlled, used bait cartridges are replaced with wood monitors. The pest management professional continues to check for signs of new termite activity as long as the service agreement continues.
