Happy Earth Day!
Today, Friday April 22 is Earth Day. This is a great time to consider all the environmentally-friendly attributes associated with the Sentricon System. As an Authorized Operator for the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System, we are proud of our contribution to protect our planet using this “green” product to eliminate termite colonies that damage millions of structures.

Many of our clients are seeking out “greener” products to control the pests in their homes and businesses. This is one of the better ones. Not only is it very effective, but the cost to the consumer goes down all the time. How many products can you say that about?
I do want to add a caveat to this blog. The main liquid termite product being used in Kansas City and the entire United States, is named Termidor and we use a ton of it! It is a great product and kills the termites for years. There is also a new liquid termite product out called Altriset, manufactured by Dupont. It is considered a “green” product and is supposed to do a great job killing the termites and lasting a long time in the soil. You will probably be hearing more about this product in the near future. I just highlighted Sentricon for this Blog because it was the first Green product out on the market, so I thought it was a good product to highlight for Earth Day.
