Sentricon Protects Jackson Square in New Orleans


Many tourists come to New Orleans’ French Quarter for the cuisine. So do termites — although with vastly different tastes.

While visitors dine on classic dishes like crawfish and jambalaya, termites are feasting on the historic structures in the French Quarter. Many of the buildings have shared walls and were built with porous stucco, allowing the ferocious Formosan termites to chew their way through. For decades, historic buildings in the French Quarter’s Jackson Square suffered damage from Formosan termites. These super aggressive termites nest in homes, buildings and even trees in the area.

Since 1994, Jackson Square has been protected with a ring of 84 in-ground stations around the perimeter. Coring through concrete sidewalks makes the Sentricon® stations barely visible.

Let the good times roll!
