Sentricon Colony Elimination System
A REVOLUTIONARY WAY TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY
For the first time ever, you can wipe out termites where they live. Your weapon: the innovative Sentricon® System from Dow AgroSciences. The Sentricon System eliminates subterranean termite colonies, while being nondisruptive to property owners and tenants. It also provides proven, long-term protection against termite damage.
HOW THE SENTRICON SYSTEM WORKS
The Sentricon System takes advantage of natural termite behavior. Worker termites constantly forage far and wide, looking for wood to feed their colony. When they find food, like the monitoring device in a Sentricon station, they leave special scent trails to summon their nestmates to the food source.
|LOYAL FOLLOWS THESE 6 STEPS TO PROTECT YOUR HOME:|
|1. First, your property is inspected for signs of termites.|
|2. Then, Sentricon stations are placed in the soil around your structure. Where a building is edged with concrete sidewalks, driveways or parking lots, a concrete coring device may be used to place the stations.|
|3. The stations are checked regularly for termite activity.|
|4. When termites are found in one or more stations, they are transferred to a Baitube™ device containing Recruit® IV termite bait. The device containing the termites is then placed back in those stations.|
|5. The captured termites feed on Recruit IV, tunnel out and send other colony nestmates back to feed on the bait. As they do so, the colony starts to decline and will eventually be eliminated.|
|6. After a colony has been eliminated, the bait is replaced with new monitoring devices. Your pest control professional will continue to inspect these to discover any new colonies that might invade your property.|
The Sentricon System, the first and most successful termite baiting system, has been proven to eliminate termite colonies by independent research at 30 universities, reported in 45 published scientific articles, and by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It uses only a few grams of active ingredient in a cellulose matrix that termites love to eat. This Recruit termite bait is placed strategically in in-ground Sentricon stations in areas where termites are or may be active. Termites feed on the Recruit termite bait and share it with nestmates until the colony dies. The Sentricon System requires no drilling in floors or foundations, no digging or trenching and no gallons of chemical solution injected in the soil.
