Liquid or Bait? What’s Best for Me?

You want to protect your home from termites, but first you need to answer the important question: bait or liquid?

The Sentricon® System puts science to work to protect your home. A protective ring of Sentricon stations around your home turns termite foraging behavior against them. They find the bait, feed on it and take it back to the colony. The result is proven colony elimination. Alternative liquid treatment are designed to block termite access to the home by killing some or repelling them, but the colony stays in place to resume the attack if the liquid termiticide barrier is disturbed or the chemical protection breaks down naturally. In comparison, the Sentricon System bait remains fully effective thanks to regular inspection and service by a Certified Sentricon Specialist.
