The Amon Carter Museum of Western Art was established in 1961 and is located in Fort Worth Texas. In 2011 it was renamed the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. The museum was established by Amon G. Carter, who earned his fortune by establishing holdings in publishing, radio, television, oil, and aviation. The museum’s collection focuses primarily on 19th and early-to-mid 20th Century American art. The collection includes works from renowned artists including Alexander Calder, Thomas Cole, Stuart Davis, Winslow Homer, Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz. The building also houses substantial photographic and archival collections along with a research library that contains approximately 150,000 items which focus on American art, history, and culture.
With such priceless collections of art and historical items comes the responsibility of carefully preserving them for future generations. Safe and environmentally friendly pest control plays an important role in protecting buildings and the items they contain. Of particular concern in Texas is termite control.
Types of Termites Found in Texas
There are over 4,000 documented species of termites around the world, with five termite species in Texas that are a serious threat to homes and businesses.
• Eastern subterranean termites
• Arid-land subterranean termites
• Formosan subterranean termites
• Western dry-wood termites
• Desert damp-wood termites
Texas; High Activity Termite Area
Texas is a “high activity area” for termites and the expert pest control specialists at Pied Piper Services protect the past using today’s pest technology in innovative ways. One of the most important things to remember about termites is that as long as there is a queen, there will be a termite colony. Termites numbering the tens of thousands could be infesting your home or business. The colony leader is the Queen and the job of her worker termites is to keep her fed. Soldier termites protect her and swarming reproductive termites start new colonies ensuring the survival of the species. Termites feed constantly on wood and by the time their presence is known, the colony has become so large that the damage becomes blatantly obvious.
Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination System
The Sentricon system is designed to kill not only the termite colony but also the queen. Termites use specialized chemical signals to lead workers to food as well as send warnings if they sense a threat. The Sentricon system is scientifically designed to destroy termite colonies safely and effectively. The termite colony will feed on the bait never detecting that the patented active ingredient in Sentricon will control their ability to eat and breed. The end result is death to both the queen and her colony. The Sentricon system was successfully used on the Amon Carter Museum of American Art to eradicate termites and preserve the contents of the museum for future generations to enjoy.
The Sentricon system is safe, in fact it is the only termite product available on the market that has been awarded the Presidential Green Chemistry Award by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The knowledgeable Sentricon Specialists at Pied Piper Services are trained and qualified to use Sentricon to effectively control and prevent termite attacks by installing and maintaining a ring of Sentricon stations around your Texas or Oklahoma home or business.
