One of the many reasons that Capitol Pest was voted the best pest control company by readers of the Washingtonian Magazine and is highly rated on Consumer’s Checkbook and Angie’s List, is our customized approach to termite prevention and termite control.
Having been in business since 1936 and having always specialized in termite inspections, treatments, and damage repairs, Capitol Pest continues to be a leader in the industry. Our Staff Entomologist, Dr. Russell Travers, and our termite inspectors are always operating under the impression that every home, family, and beliefs are different. That is why we believe in offering all of the latest and best technologies on the market for termite control. This allows our termite inspectors to act as consultants, not high-pressure salespeople, to help you decide which is best for you.
Today there are two distinctly different methods of termite treatments available on the market and we believe that we are offering the best options for both methods of treatment.
Termite baiting is a method of termite control where bait is placed in the soil around the home as well as in above ground (AG) stations where termites are already feeding inside the structure. The foraging termites take the bait and feed the colony. Over some time, this eliminates the colony and the threat of termite damage. Through the ongoing service of the stations, future infestations are prevented.
Since 1995, the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System has been the leader in termite baiting and provides an eco-friendly approach to termite treatments while providing superior results. We have chosen the Sentricon System for the following reasons:

The standard treatment of the termite control industry for over 50 years utilizes liquid termiticides which are applied to the soil in/around your home. The goal is to create a continuous chemical barrier around your home to block all potential routes
of termite entry. Termites that come into contact with the treated “barrier” are killed as a result and the structure is protected infestation and termite damage.
