There are over eighteen species of termites (some people refer to them as woodlice) in the Cayman Islands but only six species are known to cause structural damage to your property if not controlled by Pest Control Professionals.
Your home or business is probably your biggest investment so protection starts with an inspection, to identify the species of termite present and the level of infestations. We will then provide recommendations for the service required.
An initial inspection of your property by our qualified inspectors will assess the situation both inside and out to determine the type (species) of termites present and the appropriate service that is required to treat the species of termite on your property.
SENTRICON TERMITE BAITING SYSTEM
Pestkil is the only certified Sentricon Specialists in the Cayman Islands.
The Sentricon System has been developed to eliminate subterranean termites, the system destroys the termite queen and her colony without disrupting your lawn, landscaping or foundation. The stations are simply put in the ground around your home, forming a protective ring.
Termites prefer the bait found in the Sentricon System more than wood, and its active ingredient, noviflumuron, prevents them from molting.
When they can’t molt they die’
When the colony dies.
The QUEEN dies!
The Sentricon System begins working as soon as it’s put in the ground and with the ongoing service from our certified Sentricon Specialists, it keeps protecting your home 24/7, year after year.
Above ground baiting stations are also used and these are placed directly on active termites, whether it’s in your home, garden or even your boat Sentricon will eliminate the termite colony. In fact in the Cayman Islands, the above ground bait stations have been very effective in eliminating termite colonies from boats without any structural repairs.
We have several species of subterranean termites in the Cayman Islands and Sentricon is effective against them all.
If you think you have termites in your home then please call and we will be happy to do an inspection and advise accordingly on the appropriate treatment.

Some termite species nest above ground in trees, shrubs and on the ground in decaying tree stumps.
These termites will also invade your home and cause substantial damage.
Our service includes eliminating nests on your property and thorough perimeter spraying, sometimes this involves digging a small trench around the perimeters so the foundations can be treated.
