INDIANAPOLIS — April 24, 2014 — Does green involve compromise?
Not always. It’s possible for green products to actually equal or outperform less earth-friendly options. One example is the Sentricon® System, which provides welcome relief to homeowners in every state where hungry termites view homes as food. Yes, the Sentricon System is a green product that really works. The proof is in the 60-plus scientific studies and the 2 million structures it has protected, including the White House and the Statue of Liberty.
Developed through extensive research to take advantage of termite behavior, Sentricon targets and eliminates the termite colony. Termite workers feed on the bait in the stations and then share it with the rest of the colony, eventually eliminating the entire colony, including the termite queen, who can produce millions of eggs during her lifetime.
While providing powerful home protection, the Sentricon System also helps meet the environmental considerations of homeowners. The Sentricon System is the only pest control product to earn the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award, an award presented by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Unlike alternate methods of termite control that require digging a trench around a home and pumping hundreds of gallons of liquid chemical termiticide into the soil, the Sentricon® System uses only a small amount of active ingredient enclosed in in-ground bait stations spaced to form a protective barrier around the home. And the bait that makes Sentricon so effective was the first product registered by the EPA as a Reduced Risk Pesticide.
Termites are a serious problem, costing homeowners an estimated $5 billion per year.1 So it’s nice to know the Sentricon System proves it’s possible to be both earth-friendly and highly effective.
