THOSE TERRIBLE TERMITES
Damage to your home and property is a real threat, every day of the year. Let the Sentricon® System give you peace of mind.
Termites are smart. You’re smarter.
Termites have survived since the days of the dinosaurs. The queen and king produce a steady stream of offspring. Workers find food sources and bring it back to the rest of the colony. Soldiers defend the colony. Reproductives create new colony members, and swarmers leave the colony to begin new ones. To keep things running smoothly, termites use specialized chemical signals. These chemical signals not only lead workers to good food sources but also warn if there is a threat. With bait termites prefer even more than wood, the Sentricon® System is smart science and an ally in helping you destroy your enemy.
Sentricon is smart science.
Sentricon defeats termites at their own game. They feed readily on it but never detect the threat — not even while the patented active ingredient is taking away their ability to eat, survive or breed. They never catch on. The result is death to the queen and her colony.
Sentricon takes the fight to the colony better than liquid insecticides by killing the colony and the queen. And it’s the first and only termite product to be awarded the Presidential Green Chemistry Award by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
