Why Use Sentricon Over Liquid Termite Treatments?

When considering termite treatments you will often be faced with two separate choices, bait systems or liquid treatments. While both have their advantages, it’s clear that there are many reasons why the Sentricon® System has become the leading termite control system on the market. Here are some advantages to utilizing the Sentricon® System over liquid termite treatments:

Queen Elimination

Unlike liquid treatments that can kill individual termites but not impact the larger colony. To avoid this the bait system introduced by Sentricon® focuses on the feeding habits of termites. When traveling termites feed on the bait within the system, they will return to the colony to regurgitate food for the others. Effectively, this can remove the entire colony, including the queen, instead of just a select few that venture out and the limited area around the treatment zone.

Effectiveness Over Time

The Sentricon® System utilizes bait tubes that are easily accessible. With liquid treatments, the applied termiticide is bound to the soil through various methods, including injection and trenching. Within a few years, the liquid termiticide will degrade and need to be reapplied to the soil. On the other hand, the bait system can easily be refilled with treated materials.

Monitoring Ability

With liquid termite treatments, the only way of knowing that your termiticide has degraded is the arrival of termites into your home or business. With the Sentricon® System, bait tubes are loaded with a wood product that can be monitored for termites. If the presence of termites is detected at any time, the tubes can be refilled with treated materials and effectively remove the newly formed colony and protect your structure.

These are just a few of the reasons the Sentricon® System is the most effective termite solution available. Why settle for liquid treatments when you can assure your home is always protected from damages. The Sentricon® System is the obvious choice for termite control!
