When You Live Where We Do, You Know Termites Are A Real Threat
In fact, it’s not a matter of if you’re going to have a termite infestation but rather when. Unfortunately, termite damage is not immediately obvious, and these voracious wood-eaters could be infesting and damaging your structure right under your nose.
If you’ve noticed signs of termites, have discovered termite damage, or simply want to be proactive, Modern Pest Control is here to help with effective termite control services in Houston, Katy, Cypress, and Sugar Land as well as throughout our Texas service area.
Our Termite Elimination Process
A licensed pest control technician well-versed in termites will conduct a thorough inspection of your property, looking for signs of termite activity and termite damage, how the insects are entering, and conditions that are conducive to these pests.
We’ll place Sentricon® stations in the soil at precise intervals around your property. The Sentricon® System takes advantage of natural termite behavior including the foraging nature of termite workers. Stations filled with Recruit HD termite bait will act as a food source and attract termites. Once termites have visited the station, they’ll leave a special sent trail that will summon their nestmates. Termites will also take the bait back to the colony which will result in the complete elimination of the termite colony—including the Queen.
Ongoing Termite Protection
Once the existing termite problem is eradicated, the Sentricon® System will monitor for new termite activity and offer continuous protection from these destructive insects.

Frequently Asked Questions
How to control termites in the lawn?
If there are termites in your lawn, it's only a matter of time before they enter your house. Now is the time to take action to eliminate them before they get inside. Our residential termite pest control treatments don't only eliminate termites in your home, but will also take care of the termites in your lawn.
What is the average cost of termite control?
The cost of termite control can vary from home to home. Pricing will depend in part on the size of your home and whether you have an active infestation or not. When we inspect your house, we'll provide you with a quote for our services before we proceed.
How to control termites in wood?
If termites have gotten into the wood in your house, you need professional termite control. They will not leave on their own, and do-it-yourself treatment methods are not effective at eliminating a termite colony.
How to control termites in soil?
Although termites in your soil are something to be concerned about, it's better to find them there than to find them in your house. However, it's still important to immediately contact us for professional termite control, so they don't have a chance to get into your home.
Sentricon® For The Win
Did you know that the same termite control technology we use to combat subterranean termites here in the Greater Houston area also protects national monuments including the Statue of Liberty, Independence Hall, Ellis Island, and the White House.
What’s more, the Sentricon® System was developed to be a green product. Where many liquid chemical treatments use hundreds of gallons of chemical solution, the Sentricon® System wipes out entire termite colonies (including queens!) using only a few grams of strategically placed active ingredient.
Finally, it’s the only termite product ever to receive the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award.
Sentricon® Case Studies
Old Katy, TX Home Remains Termite-Free
In October of 2017, Modern Pest Control installed Sentricon® with Always Active around the perimeter of a home in Old Katy, Texas. At the time there were no active termites present.
In April of 2018, one of Modern's termite control specialists visited the home for a routine Sentricon® termite inspection. No termite activity was observed in or on the home but while inspecting one of the installed stations the technician found a bait device 50% consumed and as you can see from the pictures below, live and dead termite workers and soldiers were also present.
The customer was informed of the termite activity and was very pleased at how the Sentricon® System works and that her home remained termite-free.
Preventative Termite Control Effective For Katy, TX Home

Modern installed the Sentricon® System in October.
