Sentricon System: A Safe And Eco-Friendly Termite Treatment
Termites can cause extensive damage to homes and buildings, making termite control an essential part of property maintenance. Traditional termite extermination methods often involve harsh chemicals that are harmful to the environment, animals, and the occupants of the building. With the advancement of pest control technology, there is a more eco-friendly and effective solution: the Sentricon System.
This innovative system uses advanced technology to eliminate termites without causing damage to the surrounding environment. In this blog post, we will explore how the Sentricon System works and why it’s the best eco-friendly termite control solution on the market.
A Sentricon System is an eco-friendly termite control solution designed to eliminate termite infestations in homes and buildings. The system uses a series of bait stations placed around the property, which contain a highly attractive food source for termites. Once the termites start feeding on the bait, they carry it back to their colony, where it is shared among the other members, eventually leading to the entire colony’s demise.
The Sentricon System is highly effective, as it eliminates the entire termite colony, including the queen, making it a more reliable solution than traditional methods. Moreover, the Sentricon System is environmentally safe, as it does not involve the use of harsh chemicals or pesticides that can harm the environment or the occupants of the building.
What Are The Steps Involved In Setting Up A Sentricon System?
Setting up a Sentricon System involves several steps, which include:
Inspection: A licensed termite professional will inspect the property to determine if treatment of a live infestation is necessary or if we recommend ongoing preventative treatment.
Installation of Bait Stations: If it’s determined that a Sentricon System is needed, the termite professional will install bait stations around the property, placing them in strategic locations based on their inspection findings.
Baiting: Once the bait stations are installed, they will be checked regularly by the pest control professional. When termites are found to be feeding on the bait, the bait will be replaced.
Monitoring: The bait stations will be monitored continuously to ensure that the termite colony has been eradicated, and new colonies have not formed.
Prevention: After the termite colony has been eliminated, the Sentricon System will be maintained to prevent future infestations by continuing to monitor the bait stations and ensuring they are in good condition.
Overall, setting up a Sentricon System is a complex process that should only be handled by licensed pest control professionals who have the knowledge and expertise to ensure the system is installed correctly and maintained properly. It is essential to have a Sentricon System installed as soon as possible if you suspect a termite infestation. The longer you wait, the more damage the termites can cause to your property.
Why Is Sentricon Better Than Liquid Termite Treatments?
Sentricon is a superior termite treatment compared to liquid treatments because it is eco-friendly, effective, requires less maintenance, and is non-invasive. If you are looking for a reliable and safe termite treatment option, Sentricon is the way to go.
Liquid treatments require pumping hundreds, sometimes thousands, of gallons of chemicals around your home, whereas with Sentricon the bait does not contact the solid because it’s self-contained inside the stations. The original Sentricon® system is the only termite product awarded the EPA’s Green Chemistry Challenge award for superior environmentally responsible chemistry.
Effective & Low Maintenance
Sentricon is more effective than liquid termite treatments because it eliminates the entire termite colony, including the queen. Liquid treatments may kill the termites present at the time of treatment, but they do not eliminate the colony entirely, which can lead to future infestations.
Sentricon also requires less maintenance than liquid treatments. Once the bait stations are installed, they require occasional monitoring by a pest control professional. In contrast, liquid treatments may require more frequent treatments over time.
Sentricon doesn’t require trenching or drilling into your concrete like liquid treatments typically do. Drilling through parts of a building structure can be invasive and cause damage to the property.
