Effective Termite Control With Sentricon®

As a termite baiting system, the Sentricon® System with Always Active™ Technology provides effective prevention and elimination of subterranean termites. As stations are placed strategically around your home and baited with Always Active™ Technology your termite control efforts are already working. To ensure bait stations aren’t disturbed, they are flush with the ground to reduce visibility and require a special key for access.

For maximum effectiveness, it is important to utilize a bait that is more attractive to termites than standard wood. For this reason, Dow AgroSciences, LLC. created a special bait for the Sentricon® System that is nearly 10 times more attractive to these pests than wood. To ensure the bait in the system eliminates the entire termite colony, it is treated with the active ingredient noviflumuron to halt maturation or molting.

When termites are unable to mature or molt after ingesting noviflumuron, they will soon die. This detail is important because of the feeding habits utilized by termites. Because noviflumuron doesn’t immediately kill the termites, they are able to return to the colony and share the treated food source with the rest of the colony. As the colony dies, the queen will die with it.

24/7 Termite Protection with Sentricon®

Fortunately, the protection provided by the Sentricon® System with Always Active™ Technology doesn’t stop once the termite colony and queen are eliminated. The Certified Sentricon® Specialists at Emtec Pest Control can continue monitoring your bait stations in case those pesky termites ever return.
