The Sentricon® System Termite Awareness Tour Tackles the Termite Threat in Nashville

The Termite Caddy and a 7-foot termite visit All-American Pest Control on Thursday, April 4

NASHVILLE, Tenn. ─ March 29, 2019 ─ While a 7-foot termite strapped to the roof of a hearse may seem fearsome, those who have dealt with the dangers of actual termites up close know the real threat is much larger. Millions of homeowners risk losing billions of dollars in property damage this year. Some will lose their homes altogether. Against this unseen termite threat, the best defense is awareness.

Beginning March 11, during the National Pest Management Association’s (NPMA) Termite Awareness Week, the Sentricon® System Deader Than Dead Tour will travel across the country for the second year in a row, crossing 22 states to alert homeowners on how they can stop termites dead in their tracks. NPMA estimates termite damage costs U.S. homeowners $5 billion each year, so the Deader Than Dead Tour team is hitting the road to show homeowners how to best protect themselves from harm.

Deader Than Dead Tour

The six-week Sentricon® System Deader Than Dead Tour will educate homeowners on the importance of preventive termite control and the value the Sentricon® system provides. Featuring the “Coroner’s Caddy” — a 17-foot hearse outfitted with a 7-foot dead termite replica on its roof — the tour will visit 12 cities during peak termite swarm season.

The Deader Than Dead Tour makes its tenth stop in the heart of Nashville, Tennessee, with All-American Pest Control Inc. Family-owned and -operated since opening its doors in 1961, All-American Pest Control has served Middle Tennessee families for more than 58 years. All-American Pest Control owner Erin Richardson says the Sentricon® system has played a large part in keeping these long-time customers safe from termite damage.

“When I purchased this company from my father 8 years ago, I was confident in the business’s future because we were using Sentricon® for termite prevention and elimination. I knew it was the best way to keep our homeowners protected,” says Richardson. “One of the reasons our return customers stay with us for so long is because they know how effective the Sentricon® system is for termite protection. The last thing our customers want to think about is whether their homes are completely safe from termite damage — we’re here to make sure they don’t have to worry about it.”

Dedicated to keeping Nashville-area families, schools and churches protected from termites and pests, All-American Pest Control is awarding one local homeowner, military homeowner or nonprofit organization the Hometown Hero Award. The first annual award recognizes those who demonstrate All-American’s core values of reliability, remarkable service, teamwork, respect, thoughtful innovation and servant leadership by providing 10 years of free pest control and termite protection. The winner will be recognized at 11 a.m. on April 4, during the During the Deader Than Dead Tour stop in Nashville.

The Sentricon® system: a clear solution to the hidden problem

Termites are an unseen problem, and damage is rarely covered by homeowners insurance. More than 4 million homes across the United States have been protected by the Sentricon® system, but tens of millions are vulnerable to attack. The best solution for termites is proactive protection and awareness. Homeowners can avoid damage by having an annual inspection done by a professional and preventive termite protection in place.

Using scientific knowledge of termite behavior, the Sentricon® system provides complete termite protection by eliminating the entire termite colony, including the termite queen. It was designed and developed to stop termites from being able to eat, reproduce or survive. No other product has been as thoroughly proven effective as the Sentricon® system, which means it keeps termites out of homes and gives homeowners peace of mind.

To be sure you aren’t the victim of termite damage, schedule an inspection with your local pest management company. You can start by finding your local Certified Sentricon Specialist.
