Termite Control, Treatment & Extermination Service - MA, RI Pest Solutions in Massachusetts and Rhode Island

Eastern Subterranean Termites (Reticulitermes flavipes)

Few words strike fear into the hearts of the homeowner as the word ‘termite’. We get numerous calls during the spring (usually after the first couple really hot days) from customers wondering if the winged insect they found in their home is a termite.

Proper identification is the first step. Termite reproductives (or ‘swarmers’ as they are colloquially known) have two sets of equal length wings, broad waists, and straight antennae. Ant swarmers (carpenter ants, field ants, etc.), have two sets of wings but the bottom set is smaller than the top. In addition, they have a pinched waist and elbowed antennae. The easiest way to be sure though is to have a professional identify the specimen for you.

Eastern Subterranean Termites

Although the process is rather involved, Environmental Health Services has successfully eliminated termites from thousands of homes and businesses. We are committed to keeping chemicals out of the home wherever possible, many treatments can be limited to an exterior only service. In addition, we offer a renewable lifetime warranties on the treated home so if after the work is performed termites should ever re-infest, we will perform another treatment free of charge.

Secured Environments Pest and Wildlife is an authorized Sentricon Operator... "guaranteed colony elimination."

The Sentricon Colony Elimination Baiting System provides a complete departure from the traditional methods of termite control and offers you a GREEN APPROACH to your situation. This method uses bait stations that are installed in the soil around your home and/or above ground where termite activity is discovered. The bait is ingested by the termites and interferes with the molting process (chitin synthesis inhibition) and this disruption of their development is lethal to the termite. The termites because of their social behavior share the bait which they consider food within the colony resulting in colony elimination. Sentricon continues monitoring to discover newly invading colonies. A new colony may invade and show up in Sentricon stations long after the initial colony has been eliminated. That’s what’s so great about the Sentricon System. It’s equally successful at stopping a colony that is attacking a home AND at stopping a colony that may attack a home. Treatment AND prevention. In fact, homeowners with no known termite problems have the Sentricon System installed solely to make sure it stays that way. Your home may have a security system to alert you to a human break-in. Why not one to alert you to a termite break-in? Ask for the winner of the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award to protect your biggest investment, your home.


  • The total weight of all of the termites in the world is more than the weight of all the humans in the world.
  • Termites are actually present in about 70% parts of the world, and its population outnumbers human beings on a ratio of ten to one.
  • Termites have been around since the time of the dinosaurs!
  • Termite colonies eat non-stop, 24 hours a day, seven days a week!
  • Termites adapt to ever changing environments and they are nature’s way to break down wood and return it to the soil.
  • Termites can not determine the difference between the wood in a forest and the wood members of your home.
  • Termites can enter your home through a crack or opening as thin as a piece of paper (1/64”).
  • It is also suggested that termites can live up to 40 years, and actually has the longest ever recorded adult reproductive life. This explains why they multiply dramatically and colonies can reach up several millions of termites.
  • Contrary to popular belief, wood which has been pressure treated is not immune to termite attack; termites will enter pressure-treated wood through cut ends and cracks, and will also build tunnels over the surface.
