Termite bait technology has steadily advanced, and the bait category has gained great acceptance among Pest Management Professionals and homeowners alike. 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 Any Pest Inc. Owner and CEO, Nello Montesi. “When you discover something termites love more than wood, well, that’s a home run for our customers.”
Sentricon® gets to the source of the problem — the termite queen. Without her, the colony cannot survive and continue to cause destruction. The Sentricon® System kills the entire termite colony, including the termite queen. Using scientific knowledge of termite behavior, Sentricon® eliminates the queen and her colony by ending the food chain needed for survival. With the proven power to wipe out future house-hungry termite generations, Sentricon® gives you complete termite protection.
Routine 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 nest-mates, which then eliminates the entire colony, including the termite queen, who can produce millions of termites over her life span. 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 new one.
This around-the-clock protection has been proven for nearly two decades in all areas of the United States and against all species of subterranean termites that attack and damage homes. 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. With proven and conclusive independent research done by 30 universities and independent research contractors, and reported in 70 published scientific articles, along with nearly two decades of real-world success, no other termite product kills the Queen, destroys the colony and protects your home better.
A protective ring of Sentricon® stations around your home eliminates attacking termites and protects against the threat of future attack. Sentricon® is a strong brand that has enjoyed the status of being No. 1 in termite protection and preferred by homeowners over other options, for years.
