Key Benefits of Sentricon
Using scientific information about termite behavior, the Sentricon System ends the food chain needed by the queen and her colony for survival. With the proven power to wipe out future house-hungry termite generations, Sentricon gives you complete termite protection.
No queen. No colony. No problem.
The Sentricon System eliminates termites like no other solution. The termite bait attacks and destroys the entire colony for good, including the queen, the source of the problem. And Sentricon begins working as soon as termites begin to feed on the bait, which can be immediately if active termites are visible and Recruit® AG (above-ground) bait stations are used.
Available only through Certified Sentricon Specialists™.
Termites are too big of a threat for hit-or-miss, do-it-yourself attempts to protect your biggest investment. Even Certified Sentricon Specialists are qualified only after receiving specialized training to install and maintain a protective ring of Sentricon® stations around your home. For more than 20 years, the Sentricon System has provided real-world protection for more than 3 million homes. Thanks to its proven colony elimination power, Sentricon provides 24/7/365 peace of mind.
Sentricon stops and prevents termite attacks.
Termites are discovered in more than 5 million homes each year in the United States on average. No home outside of Alaska is safe from the threat of a termite attack. Homeowners insurance rarely covers termite damage because it is defined as a home maintenance problem — something that can and should have been prevented by the homeowner.
Science that breaks the termite food chain.
The Sentricon System ends the ability of termites to eat, reproduce and survive. The science behind Sentricon® leaves termites helpless because they cannot tell that the active ingredient is lethal to them. In lab tests where termites had a choice, they ate nearly 10 times more Recruit HD termite bait than wood.
Liquid termite treatments
By reducing foraging termite numbers, liquid termiticides are only treating a symptom of the issue. Plus, over time, these treatments break down, leaving your home vulnerable to new termite invasions.
Do-it-yourself termite bait systems
There is no research that shows colony elimination with any available do-it-yourself methods. That means you might spend the time and money and still have termites causing the headaches associated with damage to your home.
The Sentricon System
Once installed, the Sentricon System forms a ring of protection around your property that does not degrade over time. It gets to the heart of the issue and eliminates the entire colony by using smart, effective science that turns the natural foraging behavior of termites against them.
Over more than 20 years, Sentricon has protected more than 3 million homes, and is relied upon by homebuilders, architects and managers of commercial properties. Proven results mean peace of mind when you choose Sentricon.
How Sentricon Works
Your first step is having a Certified Sentricon Specialist inspect your property for signs of termites. Are you eliminating a current colony or preventing a future one? The Sentricon® System can help you with either, or both.
Sentricon is installed around your home.
Stations are placed around your home, and with our Always Active™ technology, the Recruit HD termite bait is available to begin working immediately. The stations are placed in the ground with only a service cover visible, and require a special key to open.
Termites eat the bait and share with the colony.
Termites prefer the termite bait used in Sentricon nearly 10 times more than wood. The active ingredient, noviflumuron, gets shared within the colony and prevents termites from maturing through molting.
All termites die, including the queen.
When termites can’t molt to grow, they die. When the colony dies, the queen dies. The termite queen may be vicious, but Sentricon is relentless.
Your home is protected, 24/7 from any future infestations.
Your home gains continuous protection year after year with ongoing service from a Certified Sentricon Specialist and by simply keeping Sentricon stations in place. That’s real peace of mind.
