Sentricon Always Active for Termite Control
Termites do billions of dollars in damage to homes across the country year after year. Preventing them, though, is not as easy as simply keeping watch for their winged presence in your home. Instead, it takes professional termite control professionals and tools like Sentricon.
Sentricon was initially developed and made by Dow, and when introduced in 1995, it was the first big alternative to the standard practice of liquid termicide soil barriers. It’s designed to keep termite colonies from establishing themselves through a bait system. Subterranean workers look for cellulose food 24/7, and they actually go pretty far from the nest to find it – up to 350 feet in fact. Once they find a food source, they leave behind a pheromone trail for others to follow. Using this knowledge, Dow developed bait stations that the workers could find. It’s filled with cellulose material that contains a (IGR) insect growth regulator that causes all of the worker termites in the colony to die because they can’t molt. Without the worker termites the colony collapses, keeping your home safe.
Choosing Sentricon AlwaysActive is certainly the way to go for a number of reasons. First, it’s proven to successfully eliminate termite colonies, so you get real protection. More than that, though, it’s far more convenient than most kinds of termite treatments. You don’t have to drill into the structure to protect it, and since it’s actually placed outside your home, you don’t even need to be home when it’s installed. It also helps to protect your home no matter where the termites first appear because the bait stations are strategically placed around your property. This termite control method is also green-friendly , easily removed if necessary for additions and can be reinstalled after work is completed.
