Sentricon – Termite Colony Elimination System

Termites have been going after your home for years. Now the Sentricon System lets you go after their home – the colony. Termite Colony Elimination is a completely new way to deal with termites. And only Sentricon can achieve it.

How It Works
Green Technology
  • The Sentricon System:

    • Offers the best approach for protecting structures from subterranean termites because it eliminates the colony, while being non-disruptive to property owners
    • Provides proven, long-term protection against termite damage
    • Takes full advantage of natural termite behavior. Worker termites constantly forage far and wide, looking for wood to feed the colony

    Sentricon: What To Expect -- Professional Service

  • How it Works

    When they find food, like the monitoring device in a Sentricon station, they leave special scent trails to summon their nest mates to the food source. Once ProTech discovers termites feeding in the station, the monitoring device is replaced with a Baitube* device containing Recruit IV termite bait. In doing so, the technician initiates the exclusive Self-Recruitment* procedure that takes advantage of the natural behavior of termites to spread the bait throughout the colony. The bait contains a substance that stops the molting process so termites can't grow. In time, all the termites in the colony will be affected by the bait and die.

    Sentricon: Understanding The Technology

  • It's no coincidence that Sentricon stations are GREEN

    The Sentricon System revolutionized the termite industry. Rather than saturating the soil with liquid chemicals, it uses Recruit termite bait strategically, while cleverly manipulating termite biology and behavior to destroy the entire colony.

    Sentricon: Proven Protection -- Environmental Responsibility Here's what makes it green:

    • The Sentricon System uses only a few grams of active ingredient on each property, compared to hundreds of gallons of chemical solution used in a traditional liquid chemical treatment.
    • The active ingredient in Recruit termite bait is targeted specifically at the molting process in the termite's life cycle, a process not present in mammals.
    • Recruit termite bait is strategically placed in Sentricon stations only when and where needed. This minimizes the amount of active ingredient in the environment.
    • The Sentricon System had the first termite treatment bait active ingredient accepted for registration by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the strict requirements of the Reduced Risk Pesticide Initiative. This distinction is 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 to other commercially available termite treatments.
    • Sentricon is the only termite control product to ever earn the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award, one of the federal government's top environmental honors. The award recognizes technical innovation incorporating environmentally responsible chemistry into its design, manufacture and use.
