To get rid of termites, you need a bait they love even more than wood. “That’s what we can do with the Sentricon System. It’s amazing how much termites love this bait,” says a Sentricon specialist. “When
you discover something termites love more than wood, well, that’s a
home run for our customers.”
In side-by-side tests where termites could choose between wood and
the new revolutionary bait, termites actually preferred the bait 14 times
more than wood! And better yet, termites like the bait even more as it
ages, cracks and gets moldy.
The bait, a part of the Sentricon® System with Always Active™
technology, protects homes when it is placed inside Sentricon System
stations placed around the perimeter of the home. Termites discover the bait, feed on it and then deliver its slow-acting chemistry to the
termite colony. The active ingredient in the bait, noviflumuron, disrupts
termite molting, thereby eliminating the entire termite colony.
termite control attempts a blocking method — applying up to hundreds of gallons
of insecticide into the soil to create a barrier around the home to
either repel or kill termites as they try to get to the wood in the home.
The better way to protect a home is to simply eliminate the termite
problem altogether by using a baiting system. Used by a trained Certified
Sentricon Specialist®, the Sentricon System enlists the foraging “worker”
termites to carry bait material back to the termite colony as food for their
nestmates, which then eliminates the entire colony, including the termite
queen, who can produce millions of termites over her lifespan. A series of Sentricon
System stations, usually placed about 10 feet apart, contain enough bait
to control multiple termite colonies.
Sentricon System stations are serviced once or more per year, and
any bait device that is more than one-third consumed is replaced with a
research has proven that the Sentricon System with always active technology
eliminates entire termite colonies,” says Joe DeMark, a researcher with
Dow AgroSciences. “To do this, we tested the bait in university studies and real-world use on homes in all
regions and against multiple species of subterranean termites.”
