How the Snetricon system works

Sentricon® is scientifically designed to eliminate the entire subterranean termite colony — including its queen. Never had termites? Keep it that way. Sentricon can be installed to both eliminate and prevent termite infestations.

To start out, you should have a Certified Sentricon Specialist™ inspect your property for signs of termites. Leave it to the pros to leave no termite behind.

  1. Sentricon is installed around your home. 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? Sentricon can help you with either — or both.

  2. Termites eat the bait and share with the colony. Termites prefer the 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.

  3. All termites die, including the queen. When termites can’t molt to grow, they die. When the colony dies, the queen dies.


Your home gains continuous protection year after year with ongoing service from a Certified Sentricon Specialist and by simply keeping Sentricon® stations in place. Your home is protected 24/7 from any future infestations. Talk about real peace of mind.
