Property Protection Through Colony Elimination
One of the main differences between the Sentricon ®Termite Colony Elimination System and a basic termite control is that basic termite control uses a chemical termiticide barrier. Sentricon eliminates the colony, which removes the threat of structural damage.
The Sentricon System is the only termite bait that has published, peer-reviewed research documenting colony elimination.
Dow AgroSciences, the manufacturer of the Sentricon System, in cooperation with researchers from the United States Department of Agriculture-Forest Service (USDA-FS) and 15 state universities, conducted an unprecedented number of termite research field trials nationwide.
The Sentricon System has been documented to eliminate all economically important subterranean termite species utilizing the biology and behavior of termites to affect their demise.
The Sentricon System has also eliminated subterranean termite colonies in homes like yours nationwide and is protecting hundreds of thousands of residential and commercial properties.
Compared to basic liquid termiticide treatments, the Sentricon System is non-intrusive. With the Sentricon System, there is no drilling in floors or foundations required, and it results in fewer disturbances to landscaping than the basic liquid termiticide treatments.
Your pest management professional can install and monitor the Sentricon System without ever entering your home.
The Sentricon System is environmentally responsible because its termite bait is used only when and where termites are present.
The Sentricon System uses just a few grams of active ingredient to eliminate the colony, and the bait is removed after colony elimination. With basic liquid treatments however, hundreds of gallons of diluted chemical may be necessary to treat around and underneath a home.
Stations are inconspicuous and secured with a locking cap designed to prevent entry by children or pets.
The Sentricon System was the first product registered under the Environmental Protection Agency's Reduced Risk Initiative, and is the first termite treatment that has earned the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award.
