Texas State Capitol
Massive red granite domes present a citadel seemingly unconquerable from all forces. Yet the imposing walls were unable to prevent one treacherous marauder from invading this site that is sacred to Texas hearts - the Texas State Capitol in Austin. The villains, of course, are termites. The conqueror: the Advance® Termite Bait System, administered by The Bug Master in Austin. The Bug Master also chose the Advance Termite Bait System because it minimizes non-target exposure to pesticides and avoids drilling into the historic structure. The victor? The capitol building, which is termite-free.
Margaret Mitchell House
It is in this two-story home on the fashionable Peachtree Street in Atlanta that author Margaret Mitchell penned her classic novel, Gone With the Wind, from 1925-1932. The home, which was then split into 10 apartment units with Mitchell living and writing in unit #1, has since survived two fires. A new threat came along in 2005 – termites. Thanks to the Advance® Termite Bait System and Peachtree Pest Control, the home is termite free and in excellent shape for the thousands of tourists who visit the location every year.
Chinqua Penn Plantation
This architectural gem in North Carolina is on the National Register of Historic Places and has been featured on the A&E Channel series, "America’s Castles." But subterranean termites didn’t take its grandeur into account when they began doing damage several years back.
Made primarily of stone – and owned by a couple who wanted an environmentally friendly treatment solution – the grounds were not a good candidate for liquid treatment. Now, with the help of the Advance® Termite Bait System and General Termite & Pest Control, nearly 100 stations protect the plantation’s six main structures – allowing guests and tour groups to enjoy its 22 acres of gardens and historic landscape.
