The Sentricon® System destroys the Termite Queen and her colony without disrupting your lawn, landscaping or foundation. That's because there is no structural drilling or trenching and digging around your foundation. The stations are simply put in the ground around your home, forming a protective ring. Termites prefer the bait found in Sentricon® more than wood, and its active ingredient, noviflumuron, prevents them from molting. When THEY can't molt, they die. When the colony dies, the Queen dies.
Rather than surrounding your house with diluted chemical solution, the Sentricon® System strategically uses termite bait and cleverly manipulates natural termite biology and behavior to destroy the termite colony.
The premier bait used in the Sentricon® System was the first termite treatment active ingredient accepted for registration by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the strict requirements of the Reduced Risk Pesticide Initiative. This distinction was based on its low impact on human health, low toxicity to nontarget organisms (birds, fish and plants) and low potential for groundwater contamination when compared with other commercially available termite treatments.
# 1 brand in termite protection. The Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System is the effective, environmentally responsible way to protect a home from termites. That's why it's the product of choice for millions of homeowners and used to protect many national landmarks, such as the White House, the Statue of Liberty and Independence Hall. The Sentricon® System is preferred by consumers 3-to-1 over the next leading termite bait.
The Sentricon® System has been proven to eliminate the termite colony - not just individual termites. This fact is backed by extensive third-party research - including 30 university studies and 45 published scientific articles - as well as more than 20 years of real-life success. That gives you and your family greater peace of mind.
The Sentricon® System uses only a few grams of active ingredient to eliminate termite colonies. This active ingredient is contained in bait in Sentricon stations, where it poses no hazard to groundwater, and has no label restrictions for use around wells and cisterns. Among its green credentials is this: The Sentricon® System was registered under the Reduced Risk Pesticide Initiative of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. And it is the only termite control product ever to receive the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award.
Our Certified Sentricon® Specialists will do a thorough inspection of your property for signs of termites, and place Sentricon® stations in the soil at precise intervals around your property.
Liquid Chemical Treatments
Even with the newest non-repellant termiticides, a trench is dug around the foundation of the home and holes are drilled every 12 inches through the floor or foundation. Hundreds of gallons of diluted chemical solution are injected into the soil around and under the structure. But liquid chemicals tend to break down over time, leaving untreated gaps termites can tunnel through. Special precautions must be taken on properties with wells or cisterns, sub-floor heating ducts or other vulnerable features.
Applied during construction, or when trying to save infested structures, borates and pressure treatments penetrate the surface of bare wood to protect it against termites. Borates are toxic to the termites that consume it, but if they don't eat treated lumber, termites can still construct mud tubes on the surface.
There are a few termite treatments available in retail stores, including foams, liquids, powders and baits. However, most homeowners have limited knowledge, time, training, and tools. Many universities strongly encourage consulting a professional for termite treatment. The labels on many do-it-yourself products caution that they are not recommended as sole protection from termites.
The bottom line is this:
We want to get rid of termites as much as you do. And we want to protect your home and the environment as much as you do. The Sentricon® System eliminates termite colonies and prevents colonies from starting with just a few grams of active ingredient. Perhaps that's why the Sentricon® System is preferred by more homeowners than any other brand.
