A Revolution in Termite Control

Termites, though small in size, can wreak havoc on homes and structures, causing extensive damage that often goes unnoticed until it’s too late. Traditional methods of termite control have relied heavily on chemical treatments, which can be harmful to the environment and pose risks to human health. However, with advancements in pest control technology, a more sustainable and effective solution has emerged: the Sentricon® Baiting System.


What is Sentricon®?

The Sentricon® Baiting System is a revolutionary approach to termite control that utilizes baiting stations strategically placed around a property to eliminate termite colonies. Unlike traditional methods that involve spraying chemicals around the perimeter of a building, Sentricon® works by enticing termites to feed on bait stations containing a substance called noviflumuron, which disrupts their ability to molt and ultimately leads to their death and the death of the colony.

Close to 5 million buildings and homes have been protected by the Sentricon® system over the past 25 years and that number continues to rise. Field tests completed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture alongside 30 universities and multiple other researchers have resulted in the publication of more than 70 articles detailing the evidence of Sentricon®’s ability to eliminate termites and their colonies.


How Does Sentricon® work?

The key to the Sentricon® system lies in its unique baiting strategy. The bait stations are installed in the ground at intervals around the perimeter of a structure, forming a protective barrier against termite infestation. These stations contain wood bait that is highly attractive to termites. Once termites discover the bait, they begin to feed on it and carry it back to their colony, where it is shared with other termites, including the queen. As more termites consume the bait, the colony’s population declines until it eventually collapses.


What are the advantages of Sentricon®?

The Sentricon® Baiting System offers several advantages over traditional termite control methods:

  1. Environmental Friendliness: One of the most significant benefits of Sentricon® is its minimal impact on the environment. Unlike chemical treatments that can leach into the soil and waterways, Sentricon specifically targets termites while leaving other organisms unharmed. Additionally, noviflumuron, the active ingredient in Sentricon® bait, is designed to break down naturally over time, further reducing its environmental footprint.
  2. Precision Targeting: Sentricon® is highly targeted in its approach to termite control. By placing bait stations strategically around a property, it focuses on areas where termite activity is most likely to occur. This precision targeting not only maximizes effectiveness but also minimizes the amount of bait needed, reducing waste and cost.
  3. Long-Term Protection: Unlike chemical treatments that require periodic reapplication, Sentricon® provides long-term protection against termite infestation. Once installed, the bait stations remain active year-round, continuously monitoring for termite activity and eliminating colonies as they are detected. This proactive approach helps prevent future infestations and provides homeowners with peace of mind knowing their property is protected.
  4. Non-Invasive Installation: Installing Sentricon® bait stations is a non-invasive process that does not require drilling or trenching around a property. This means minimal disruption to landscaping and no need to move out during treatment, making it an ideal choice for homeowners looking for hassle-free termite control.
  5. Safe for Humans and Pets: Sentricon® poses no direct threat to humans or pets. Unlike chemical treatments that may require evacuation during application, Sentricon® allows homeowners to remain in their homes throughout the treatment process, without worrying about exposure to harmful chemicals.
  6. Proven Effectiveness: The efficacy of Sentricon® has been extensively researched and validated through independent studies and real-world applications. Numerous field trials and scientific studies have demonstrated its ability to eliminate termite colonies and provide long-lasting protection against infestation.
  7. Peace of Mind: Perhaps the most significant advantage of using Sentricon® is the peace of mind it provides homeowners. Termite infestations can cause significant damage and financial loss if left unchecked. By investing in Sentricon®, homeowners can rest assured that their property is protected against these destructive pests, allowing them to enjoy their homes without the worry of termite damage.
