Coroner’s Caddy to lead procession

Your eyes do not decieve you, that is a dead termite, belly up, riding on the roof of a hearse.

J&J Exterminating Company is bringing termites to Natchitoches. Well, actually it is only one but it is huge…and thankfully dead. The six-week Sentricon® System Deader Than Dead Tour will educate homeowners on the importance of preventative termite control and the value the Sentricon® system provides. The tour features the “Coroner’s Caddy” – a 17-foot hearse outfitted with a 7-foot dead termite replica on its roof. The tour is visiting 11 cities during peak termite swarm season.

The tour will be in Natchitoches Wednesday, March 20. J&J Exterminating will act as a Select City Host of the Sentricon System Deader Than Dead Tour. They are located at 200 South Drive. The procession will begin at 11 a.m. J&J vehicles, along with a Natchitoches City Police escort, will wind their way from the J&J offices, approximately 2 miles to the Downtown Riverbank to join local dignitaries for a brief meet and greet educational session and photo opportunities. J&J Exterminating Company was one of the first three companies in the state to offer the Sentricon system to protect homes and businesses from termites.

“J&J Exterminating Company is the largest installer of Sentricon in the state of Louisiana,” said Michael Jordan, Natchitoches Branch Manager.  “We have over 20,000 sites protected by Sentricon in the state.”  Sentricon is a trusted product across the United States that protects some famous historic sites, such as the Statue of Liberty and the White House.  J&J Exterminating Company protects many sites in Louisiana, including LaBuerge Casino in Lake Charles, Margaritaville Casino of Shreveport, The Port of Lake Charles, Calcasieu Parish School Board, Villagio of Bossier City and McNeese State University, just to name a few.

“Here locally, J&J Exterminating Company and the Sentricon System protect Fort St Jean Baptiste, Chateau St Denis Hotel, Natchitoches Mayor’s Office, City Hall of Many, City Banks, Keyser Ave Medical Building, Northwest La Cancer Center, Women’s Resource Center, Kisatchie Ranger District as well as many others,” Jordan said. J&J will also be grilling and selling hamburgers at the Beau Jardin Riverbank with donations going to the “Relay for Life” organization.
