How Sentricon® System with Always Active™ Works
January 18, 2018
Subterranean termites are a problem that costs U.S. property owners billions of dollars annually. They come up from the ground and feed silently for years without being detected. The only way to prevent this damage is with ongoing termite protection from a licensed and certified termite control specialist. In the past, a liquid chemical barrier was the solution used by most pest control companies. But, over the last two decades, Sentricon® System with Always Active™ has earned its place as one of the most trusted termite control products in the United States.
Sentricon® with Always Active™ is smart technology. It uses the natural behavior of termites against them. Here are a few examples:
Subterranean termites live in the ground. When workers come up to feed on a man-made structure that has Sentricon® with Always Active™ installed, they come in contact with bait stations installed around the perimeter.
Worker termites never stop looking for food. This ensures that they will find the bait inside the bait stations.
Worker termites are looking for the best food options for their colony. The bait in Sentricon® with Always Active™ is scientifically proven to be more interesting to worker termites than wood. That is saying a lot, considering wood is their primary food source.
Workers share the food with other worker termites and, eventually, with the rest of the termites in their colony, including the queen. Since Sentricon® with Always Active™ works slowly to kill termites, it is able to get past the natural defenses of the termite nests and work its way all the way to the queen.
The queen is the heart of a termite nest. Every termite lives to follow her instructions. When a queen dies, her instructions die with her. And without those instructions, the termites don't know what to do. Eventually, they come to a complete stop and simply die.
Sentricon® with Always Active™ targets termites and only termites. It is 100% eco-friendly and has over two decades of real-world success in protecting man-made structures from termite damage. It has been so successful, it is the termite solution used to protect important landmarks in our nation's capital, like the White House, the Capitol Building, the Smithsonian Museums, and more.
